Dhaka, Mar. 3 (ANI): Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dipu Moni on Sunday condemned reports of Jamaat-e-Islami activists attacking minority Hindus and their temples in different parts of the country.

“It is unfortunate and deplorable. The (Bangladesh) government will not tolerate any attempt to destabilize the country, or allow any breach of communal harmony,” Moni said on the sidelines of her meeting with visiting Indian President Pranab Mukherjee.

Bangladesh media has reported over the past couple of days that activists of the Jamaat-e-Islami have attacked at least six temples and several houses of Hindus in Noakhali District’s Begumganj area.

The attacks on Hindus were carried out shortly after Jamaat executive council member Delwar Hossain Sayedee was sentenced to death for his role in perpetrating war crimes during the 1971 war for independence.

Leaders and activists of the Jamaat-e-Islami and its student affiliate Islami Chhatra Shibir have been taking out processions in Begumganj’s Rajganj Bazar.

The bdnews.com web site quoted Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) of the Begumganj circle, Mahbub Alam Khan, as saying that the attacks were carried out from that procession and the Hindu temples at Rajganj Bazar, Thakur Barhi and Bainnabarhi areas were vandalised.

The attackers also set the residences of Bhuiyan and Banik families on fire, leaving six people injured.

There are also reports that activists of the Jamaat clashed with police in Noakhali town following the verdict.

Shibir activists detonated several crude bombs at that time.

At least 12 buses have been vandalised and another four torched at the Al-Amin Bus Depot at Dattar Haat.

Reports said that the police had to fire at least a hundred rounds of ammunition from their shotguns to bring the situation under control.

Houses and business in Gaibandha, Chittagong, Rangpur, Sylhet and Rajganj have also faced the attacks of the Jamaat and the Chhatra Shibir. (ANI)

islam is peace ?

Fundamentalist muslims are always dangerous for any country. India should eliminate all such extreme thinking muslims who wants to create terror amongst the people.Some hard core muslims are hacking poor hindus to death and harrassing them, raping hindu women , converting hindus by force , looting property ,razing down temples in paksitan and bangla desh. If the same rule apply in hindustan by hard core hindus , what will happen to muslims? If islam is peace why people are not at peace? Democratic , secular ,peaceful muslims must think on this.


And Indians Muslims loses their right to cry on Gujarat. by reading above post yes now no one can put any blame on Modiji and BJP. And its also proof who is real in 1992 Talisma brought atrocities on women to media and she is hiding in fear for her life and in india Teesta is hailed as heroine

i acknowledge

i condemn vehemently on Gujarat riots , most unfortunate thing to happen in recent history, and people say all the bombings are because of babri masjid ,Indians wouldn't want to desecrate any mask or church , unfortunately babri is in ayodhya one of the hilliest places of Hindu's . tell muslim brothers what would u do ? when a church or temple is constructed right just besides ur holliest place

And Some people says Islam

And Some people says Islam is religion of PEACE.
By the way not a single Mosque was vandalised or Muslims were attacked by Bajrang Dal after Babu Bajrangi was sentenced for life term.
Which is better?? JeI or Bajrang Dal??

And Some People Say Islam

No extremist is better than the other. Extremists Jews and Muslims are more lethal than any other religous extremists. I am a Muslim but I have to confess this. Jews and Muslims extremists can go any length to justify their evil ideology. Bajrang Dal, Hindu Vahini etc are in infancy, even this has the potential to grow into another monster. Religion is one thing and the followers are another. We cannot blame religion for one's action.

And you say you are Muslim

I believe that you are not muslim i am 100% sure...you fanatic hindu trying to vandalizing muslim image by changing name to muslim..

I believe that most of the comments written by hindus by showing their muslim names for this article.

Bangladesh & De-Islamisation..


The process of de-Islamisation has reached its climax when recently the Muslims of Bangladesh were stunned by discovering most abhorrent blogs and facebook writings degrading Allah, the Prophet and everything Muslims hold dear. No one in the 1400 years history of Islam ever dared to vilify Islam to this extent A group of atheist writers and bloggers are promoted and protected by state to defame Islam and Islamic. Despite the order from the highest court and call from the Imams and Khatibs around to shut down those Islam-bashing websites, the government not only turned a blind eye rather used encouraged such bloggers in Shahabagh protest to chant vile slogans such as; ‘Hang Islamic leaders and scholars’, ‘ban the Qur’an’ and ‘Ban islamic organisations’.
