Human Rights organizations in Bangladesh and abroad are now contemplating a bigger fight against the recurring atrocities upon the Bangladesh Minorities on Hindu minorities especially following the March pronouncement of execution of Bangladeshi Muslim war criminal Delwar Hossain Sayedee by Special Bangladesh Tribunal named as International Crimes Tribunal.
Hindu Existence (h/t Susan K) Sayedee was convicted for the severe charges as accused of working with the Al-Badr and Rajakar group during the independence struggle and carrying out numerous atrocities, including forcibly converting Hindus to Islam. Sayedee formed some small groups to loot and seize the property of Bengali Hindus and those who supported and participated in Liberation of Bangladesh.
The tribunal found Sayeede guilty of eight out of the 20 charges levelled against him. These were murder, torture, rape and forcibly converting Hindus to Islam. Angered over the verdict, the fundamental Islamic forces led by Jamaat e Islam of Bangladesh lashed out a political confrontation with the opponents and wreaked a havoc upon the Hindu Minorities in retaliation.
In an UN Press release, Mr. Ban Ki Moon urged Bangladeshi Government and Jamaati jihadists to stop the violence immediately. The British High Commissioner in Dhaka, Mr. Robert Gibson expressed his deep concern and and disgust at the attacks on Hindu religious places.
The Bangladesh Hindu Buddha Christian Oikya Parishad formed a human chain in Chattagram to protest what they called ‘heinous attacks’ by Jamaat-e-Islami and Islami Chhatra Shibir on the country’s minority communities in the wake of the death verdict for Jamaat leader Delwar Hossain Sayedee.
In a press statement, ” We are in a very critical crisis period, when a matter of Justice towards the settlement of anti-liberation crime has been vitiated in a communal texture. A heinous torture, murder, loot, assault, destruction of temples are rampantly done in an utter communal method to extinct the Hindu community in Bangladesh”.
The organizers of Human Chain and Protest rally expressed their grave concern for the destruction and burning of 1500 Hindu household, 50 temples, murder of 3 Hindu minority people, injuring over 100 Hindus in last three days of spreading violence all over Bangladesh. Such targeted violence upon Hindu minorities by Jamaati hooligans covering 22 districts including Noakhali, Chattagram, Coxbazar, Kumilla, Laxmipur, Gaibandha, Brahmanbaria, Syllet, Satkhira, Bagerhat and Thakurgaon.
An estimated 100 crores of loss has been levied on Hindus by the torture friendly Jamaati beasts under human skin. The leadership in the protest rally and human chain has been expressed their concern to the deterioration of minority status of Hindus under an unbearable Islamic persecution and threat perception. In Bangladesh, some 26,00,000 acres of land was declared as Enemy Property and at least 2 crores of Hindus were compelled to leave Bangladesh under an Islamic conspiracy.
