CPRC Assam condemns atrocities religious minorities in Bangladesh

By Staff Correspondent

Silchar, Oct 17: The Citizens' Rights Preservation Committee (CRPC) Assam has strongly condemned the bloodshed and alleged barbaric incidents which took place during the Durga Puja in different parts of Bangladesh - viz., Kumilla, Chittagong, Gazipur, Moulabi Bazar, Kulaura, Lakkhipur, Kurigram, Sylhet, Chandpur, Noakhali districts etc.

In a release issued to the media on Sunday, the CRPC leadership including Nripendra Chandra Saha, the president of the rights body, chief advisor Hafiz Rashid Ahmed Choudhury, secretary-general Sadhan Purkayastha and Bidhayak Das Purkayastha, the general secretary said that the atrocities and fundamentalist hooliganism reached its zenith through various forms - demolishing of idols, looting, killing, kidnapping, burning, raping, grabbing of land and property. These activities indicate that a parallel government by the Islamic fundamentalists is running in Bangladesh, the leaders echoed.

"The motto and objective of the formation of Bangladesh under the patronage of India are really under threat and Bangladesh is also marching ahead in the same footsteps of other fundamentalist countries. In this regard, we believe that due to the weak and compromising policies of the External Affairs Ministry of India, such heinous crimes take place on Hindus and other minority communities of Bangladesh at regular intervals since the formation of the country. It is high time for the External Affairs Ministry, Government of India to take all precautionary measures to permanently put an end to this genocide. We demand that on international platforms, UNHCR should immediately intervene in the matter," the CRPC leadership maintained.

Further, CRPC has also urged the Prime Minister and Home Minister of India to save and protect the partition victims as per the commitment of the national leadership and Indian policy. "The Government of India should formulate hassle-free, unconditional terms and conditions without any statutory requirements to provide rights of Indian Citizenship to all the ill-fated partition victims for their survival and existence," the leaders mentioned in the release. The leaders have also appealed to all the communities of both Bangladesh and India to maintain peace and harmony and uphold the spirit of universal brotherhood.
