Attack on ISKCON temple & devotees in Noakhali
Just a couple of days back there was an attack on temples and Durga puja pandals in Bangladesh. This incident occurred during Bangladesh’s biggest Hindu community festival.
While Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina assured the Hindu community on Thursday that they have equal rights and will be able to openly celebrate their festivals.
She has also warned of action to those engaged in violence and destruction at temples and Durga Puja pandals in Comilla and elsewhere.
Few hours after the PM’s warning, Hindu temples were vandalized in Bangladesh, an ISKCON temple and the people inside it have also been attacked.
ISKCON confirmed through a tweet,” ISKCON temple & devotees were violently attacked today by a mob in Noakhali, Bangladesh. Temple suffered significant damage & the condition of a devotee remains critical.” It further said, “We call on the Govt of Bangladesh to ensure the safety of all Hindus & bring the perpetrators to justice.”
