ASK demands fair probe of attacks on minorities

Update : 03 Mar 2014, 07:13 PM

Ain O Salish Kendra (ASK) has demanded a fair investigation and trial of the perpetrators responsible for recent attacks on minority communities across the country.

The leaders of the legal rights organisation also called for initiatives from local governments to ensure the security of minority communities.

In a press release issued by executive director Nur Khan yesterday, ASK termed the attacks and torture on minorities as violation of human rights.

ASK also expressed concerns over the government’s apparent reluctance in taking necessary steps to overcome the situation.

“If the situation continues, it would seriously hamper the democratic process of the country,” it said.

The ASK leaders also condemned Friday’s attack on a Hindu temple in Kachua upazila of Chandpur and the torching of houses belonging to minorities in upazila election-related violence at Patia upazila of Chittagong on Thursday.
