Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS) arranged a number of cultural activities, including open film screening, photo exhibition, mass signature program and a musical event to condemn the recent attacks and vandalism on the Hindu temples, communities and Durga Puja venues at different parts of the country.

The student organization held the events under the title “Rukhe Darao Dhormo Sontrash” on the TSC premises of the Dhaka University campus on Saturday, October 23, from 10am to 10pm.



DUFS exhibited 34 photographs of the recent communal violence against the Hindu communities across the country, unveiled an anti-communalism graffiti, screened director Tanvir Mokammel’s film “Chitra Nodir Pare” and collected mass signatures on its five-point demands, including calls for compensating the victims from the violence-stricken areas and ensuring the legal rights of minorities.



A concert titled “Bhitemaatir Gaan” was held in the evening, attended by popular bands Gaan Poka, Bunofuler Gaan, Bokro Rekha and others.

The speakers at the event demanded a quick trial and exemplary punishment for the perpetrators of the recent communal attacks.

So far, a total of 102 cases have been filed across the country accusing 20,619 people in connection with the recent violence against the Hindu community.

Of the accused, police have arrested 583 people and drives are underway to arrest the rest, according to the police’s official data.
