A group of madrasa students demonstrated on the premises of Brahmanbarhia Press Club while hundreds of people blocked Sarail-Nasirnagar-Lakhai road by torching tyres on Sunday.

After the mayhem for hours, two temples in adjacent Habiganj’s Madhabpur also came under attack, police and witnesses said. Six persons were arrested for their alleged involvement in the attack. Paramilitary Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) have been deployed in Nasirnagar and Madhabpur Upazila headquarters along with the Rapid Action Battalion, police and Armed Police Battalion, bdnews24.com reported. The district’s Deputy Commissioner Rezwanur Rahman and Superintendent of Police Mizanur Rahman inspected the area later in the afternoon. But the leaders of the local Hindu community say the panic that has gripped them is not going away.

  1. Muslims are neither following their religion, which prescribes religious freedom, nor good politics and wisdom.

    Many Islamists are acting as terrorists and just following their myopic – short term interest and power politics to an abhorrent extreme.
