The Bangladesh Hindu-Buddhist-Christian Oikya Parishad, a platform of different religious minority groups, on Sunday said that the country witnessed 250 incidents of communal attacks across the country in last four months.
Rana Dasgupta, general secretary of the parishad, revealed this information at a press conference held at Jatiya Press Club in Dhaka.“Some 250 attacks on non-Muslim communities took place from January to April 2019 in the country,” Rana Dasgupta said.
When asked by the journalists about the reasons behind this recent increase of communal attacks, he replied, “Government has declared ‘zero tolerance policy’ on communal attacks. But the policy is not being implemented. We want a proper implementation of the policy.”
