14-party leaders visit Narail

A team of Awami League-led 14-party alliance on Frida visited Lohagara in Narail, where religious bigots launched attacks on Hindu minorities following a Facebook post on July 15.

During the visit, they handed over Tk10,000 each among 10 victim families and Tk25,000 to four temples each, BSS reported.

Awami League Presidium Member Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya, Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JaSaD) President Hasanul Haq Inu, Workers Party General Secretary Fazle Hossain Badsha, Samyabadi Dal General Secretary Dilip Barua, AL Organizing Secretary SM Kamal Hossain and Forest and Environment Affairs Secretary Delwar Hossain, among others, were present.

A views-exchange meeting was held at Sarbajanin Radha Gavinda Temple in Dighalia.

Speaking at the meeting, Maya said the government will take action against those who are involved in carrying out attacks at Hindu temples and houses.

He said an identified clique launched attacks in temples in Sahapara area of Lohagara.

He also said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's government is committed to keeping intact communal harmony in the country.

He assured that the 14-party leaders would stay beside the Hindu community.

Speaking on the occasion, Inu said the attack on Hindu community at Dighalia and Sahapara area is not an isolated incident rather it is a pre-planned one.

He demanded stern actions against the attackers. He said anti-liberation forces carry out such attacks on temples.

Inu said they would build resistance like in 1971 against communal elements.
