Condemning attacks on Hindu community in the country’s different places, Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Friday urged all to identify and hand over those who create rumour on social media to the law enforcement agencies.
He, in a statement, said the culprits behind the communal attacks would be brought to justice and the masterminds would be hunted down soon.
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, vehemently protested the attacks on Hindu community’s temples, houses and business establishments in different places of the country, including Chattogram, Chowmuhani and Burirchar of Hatia in Noakhali.
Noting that Bangladesh is a country of communal harmony, he said attacks on any religious community would never be tolerated. “The people of Bangladesh are secular and religious, but not sectarian and bigoted,” he said.
Obaidul Quader said Bangabandhu’s daughter and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given strict instructions to the law enforcement agencies to restore peace and order as well as harmony in these parts of the country.
He called upon all progressive people who believe in the spirit of the country's liberation war to unite to resist the BNP-Jamaat evil-alliance, which is the patron of these bigoted, communal and militant forces.
