The conspirators conducted the attacks to destroy our relations with the Hindu community and India, he says

Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud on Thursday said any attack on the Hindu community is an assault to the altar of the spirit of Bangladesh and the government as well.

"They (miscreants) wanted to blame the government after staging those incidents. The conspirators conducted the attacks to destroy our relations with the Hindu community and the neighbouring country to kill two birds with one stone," he told reporters at his Secretariat office.

Earlier, the minister addressed the triennial conference of Awami League Dhamoirhat upazila unit of Naogaon virtually.

Food Minister Sadhan Chnadra Majumder, AL Organizing Secretary SM Kamal Hossain, Health Affairs Secretary Dr Rokeya Sultana and AL Naogaon district unit President and Freedom Fighter Md Abdul Malek, among others, addressed the conference with AL Dhamoirhat upazila unit president Md Deldar Hossain in the chair.

Hasan said BNP and Jamaat do communal politics in Bangladesh and they give anti-Indian slogans during the elections. They prohibit the Hindu voters to go to the polling centers, he added.

He said it is proved through investigation that a Muslim youth left the holy Quran Sharif. "It will also be cleared why he did this and on whose instigation. Everything will be clear as the daylight," said Hasan, also party's joint general secretary.

Replying to a comment of BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, the minister said: "We want a strong opposition party in Bangladesh. We believe that a strong opposition party strengthens democracy. But it is regrettable that BNP could not become a strong party. Many leaders have already fled and left the party (BNP). Even, many leaders of BNP's central committee left the party through declaration."

He said the incidents of Comilla and Pirganj are isolated incidents as people of any community in Bangladesh are not communal. 

So, the miscreants carried out the incidents and the government has been able to control the situation, he added.

Hasan said: "We also stand beside the people politically. But the plotters will continue their conspiracies."

In the conference, the minister said attacks were carried out centering the Durga Puja when the country is marching ahead and the communal harmony is in place, to create a difficult situation for Awami League and the government and to destroy the good relationship with the neighbouring country.

He said Awami League and its leaders and workers are working to protect communal harmony and stand beside the Hindu community.

Hasan urged the AL leaders and workers to remain alert against the culprits.
