No country for communal violence

A month after the Langadu attack, it is disheartening to see communal tensions continue to spread amongst the Adivasi and Bangali communities.

What happened in Langadu was a terrible reminder that there were forces present in our midst that wished to wreak havoc amongst our peace-loving denizens.

And, even now, there are questions as to what led to the attacks, with many parties trying to further instigate violence amongst the communities.

The authorities must push the message forward that Bangladesh is a peaceful and secular nation that takes care of its minorities, and that communal violence will not be tolerated.

With many Adivasis losing their homes in the attack, we must make sure nothing like this happens ever again.
