Protect the Hindus, urge social groups

Source: Dhaka Tribune



They also urged the government to pay compensation to the affected families

Condemning the recent communal attacks on Hindu localities and temples at different areas of the country, a number of organisations yesterday slammed the government for not taking effective actions to ensure security of the religious minorities.
They also urged the government to pay compensation to the affected families.
Several organisations also formed a human chain in front of the National Press Club protesting the attacks that took place in many places including Jessore, Dinajpur, Gaibandha, Satkhira and Chittagong districts.
The participants brought festoons which read “Stand up against attack, oppression, persecution, atrocities on minorities.” Members of Sammilito Sangskritik Jote joined the human chain holding black flags.
Noted actor Ramendu Majumdar told the Dhaka Tribune: “It is the main responsibility of the government to stop persecution against the Hindus. Citizens’ protest is a must to put an end to such attacks.”
Z Tariq Ali, a social worker and adviser of the Liberation War Museum, told the Dhaka Tribune: “I am ashamed. We do not want to see Bangladesh as a country of Muslims. It is a country where people of all religions will get same facilities.”
Joyonto Sen Dipu, Presidium member of Bangladesh Hindu-Buddha-Christian Unity Council (BHBCUC), said the Hindus should not be treated this way as they are also citizens of Bangladesh.
During the programme, some activists of Jaago Hindu wanted to block Topkhana Road but were resisted by Nirmal Chatterje, joint general secretary of BHBCUC.
Among others, Jatiya Mohashoshan Committee, Bangladesh Jatiya Hindu Maitree Parishad, Santana Vidyarthi Samsad, students of Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh National Hindu Youth Grand Alliance and Bangladesh Chhatra Jubo Oikya Parishad joined the human chain.
They will bring out a black flag rally on Saturday and hold a gathering in front of the Shaheed Minar.
In a press release, Ekattorer Ghatak Dalal Nirmul Committee and Moulobad O Samprodayikota Birodhi Dokkin Asia Gono Sommilon demanded strict steps to resist the BNP-Jamaat attackers and bring the attackers to book.
The signatories were Justice Mohammad Golam Rabbani, Justice Syed Amirul Islam, writer Syed Shamsul Haque, journalist Kamal Lohani, litterateur Hasan Azizul Haque, writer Shahriar Kabir, Prof Muntasir Mamun, Shaheedjaya Shyamoli Nasrin Chowdhury, sculptor Ferdousi Priyobhashini and others.
Gonojagoron Moncho, in a press statement signed by its Convener Imran H Sarkar, urged the government to from a separate law to prevent communal attacks and ensure punishment of the perpetrators. The platform also asked the government to pay compensation to the affected families.
It will organise a road march from Dhaka to Malopara, Jessore on January 10 and January 11 protesting the communal attacks.

Several social organisations including “Amra” – a platform of activists of Shahbagh movement – are set to demonstrate in the capital’s Paltan and Shahbagh intersection today demanding punishment of the culprits, and compensation for the affected people.
