The violence in the India's capital New Delhi over the disputed new citizenship law killed 42 people so far

The Bangladesh Hindu Buddhist Christian Unity Council (BHBCUC) has expressed concern over the ongoing violence in neighbouring India.

The council expressed the concern at a meeting held at the BHBCUC office in Dhaka on Friday, a press release said.

The BHBCUC urged the government of India and its people to come forward, so that peace and harmony may be established and the minority community in the country is safeguarded in the continuation of its non-communal democracy, the statement added.

The violence in the India's capital New Delhi began over the disputed new citizenship law on February 24 but led to clashes between Muslims and Hindus in which 42 people were killed and hundreds injured. Many suffered gunshot wounds, while arson, looting, and stone-throwing also took place.
