Tripura’s Chief Minister calls on Bangladesh’s Government to Protect Minorities.

In the aftermath of the horrific violence perpetrated against Hindus in Bangladesh during the Durga Puja Festivals, which claimed many lives and injured many others.

Biplab Kumar Deb, the Chief Minister of Tripura, urged the Bangladesh government on Tuesday to preserve the lives, property, and holy sites of Bangladesh’s minorities.

The Chief Minister told the media that it appears that fundamentalist groups have attacked minorities and vandalised the idols and pandals of Durga Puja festivities, which occurred last week, as part of their pre-planned schemes.

“The latest events are disgraceful. I have faith in Bangladesh’s government. They will effectively deal with the matter. India and Bangladesh have a long history of friendship. We should keep doing what we’re doing. Fundamentalists or other forces should not be permitted to destabilise these ties, he added.

Last week, Deb spoke with Vikram K. Doraiswami, the Indian High Commissioner in Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, in Assam and Tripura, several of the other organisations, academics, political parties, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have condemned the violence in Bangladesh and organised protest marches.

In Agartala and Guwahati, several organisations and intellectuals met with Bangladesh Assistant High Commissioners and encouraged them to ask their government to take action against individuals who attacked minorities, vandalised Durga Puja pandals, and destroyed non-Muslim families’ property.
