Special Correspondent: Hindu Deities of “Durga Temple at Gangjogdia of Nagarkanda Sadar Upazila of Faridpur District of Bangladesh demolished and desecrated on 08.12.2017. Unknown Perpetrators at night unlawfully trespassed the “Sarbajanin DurgaTemple” and committed this crime against Hindu religion.
On receipt of information Police visited the spot on last Saturday and started investigation.
Shree Dulal Chandra Barman- Vice President of the Durga Temple informed that on last Friday night some unknown perpetrators broken heads of five Hindu deities such as “Durga”, Ganesh, Kartick, Sarwasati and Laksmi. Police was informed and they witnessed those broken deities, but could not identify who were the perpetrators.
I, Adv. Rabindra Ghosh of Bangladesh Minority Watch (BDMW) contacted with A.F.M. Nasim, Officer in Charge of Nagarkanda P.S. over Mobile phone No.01713373561 and also Zamal Pasha-Addl. S.P. who said Dulal Chandra Barman lodged first information report (FIR) at Nagarkanda police station being Nagarkanda P.S. case No.13 dated 09.12.2017 under section 295 of penal code. He said no perpetrators arrested till writing of this report.
I also informed O.C. Nagarkanda PS without mentioning penal section 447 in the F.I.R. the case may not be proceeded, only 295 of the penal code is not sufficient to prove the case. The O.C. also got me to understand that he will insert section 447 in the F.I.R.
Bangladesh Minority Watch is very much concerned about attack on Hindu Temple desecrating Hindu deities at Nagarkanda and BDMW also demand the perpetrators responsible for such crime against religion should be arrested and brought to book as per law of the country. The Hindu culture should be restored and respect to every religion should be taught. Compensation should be paid to the devotees to rebuilt the deities.
