JAMMU: Shiv Sena Jammu and Kashmir unit staged a strong protest against the atrocities and murderous attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh here today. Dozens of Shiv Sainiks led by the party’s Jammu and Kashmir unit President, Manish Sahni burnt the effigy of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the flag of Bangladesh to register their anguish against the recent attacks on the Hindus and their religious centres.
They urged the Prime Minister Modi to issue a stern warning to Bangladesh for such atrocities instead of maintaining criminal silence on the issue. While addressing the protesting Shiv Sainiks, Manish Sahni sent a stern warning to Bangladesh against the attacks on Hindus and Hindu institutions. He demanded that the safety and security of Hindus and protection of their religious freedom should be ensured in all the Muslim countries across the globe including Bangladesh.
Manish Sahni said that it is really an irony that atrocities and killings of Hindus continue unabated in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, and it would not be wrong to say that such incidents have started gaining momentum now. Relying on a data source Sahni said that during the last 10 years, there have been incidents of vandalism and arson damaging more than 3700 incident of houses, temples besides killings and injuring Hindus in Bangladesh and these have abruptly intensified in 2020-21. Recalling the latest incident he said that what could be more shameful for humanity than the fact that only the previous day houses of 60 Hindu families were set ablaze in Bangladesh besides causing destruction of Durga Puja pandals, in which four Hindus lost their lives and around 60 were seriously injured.
The Shiv Sena President lamented that today those who claim to be the torch bearers of Hindutva are maintaining the posture of mute spectators today. He said that the BJP is busy in brainstorming to formulate strategies for the upcoming assembly elections in UP and other states so much so that none of the BJP leaders, including the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi issued any warning for ensuring the security of Hindus in Bangladesh.
Sahni also raised questions on the Citizenship Amendment Act, saying that it was brought only to garner Hindu votes and now it has been put in the cold storage. On this occasion, President Women’s Wing Meenakshi Chhibber, General Secretary Vikas Bakshi, Secretary Praveen Gupta, Youth Leader Rajesh Handa, President Reasi Bhuri Singh, President Kamgar Raj Singh, Kashmir Working President Ghulam Rasool Lone, Sumit Abrol and many leaders and workers were present.
