ISKCON temple in Bangladesh vandalised, 1 killed in Noakhali

The ISKCON authorities urged the Bangladesh government to immediately take action and ensure the safety of all Hindus facing Islamic attacks


A mob of about 200 Muslims allegedly attacked an ISKCON temple in Noakhali of Bangladesh yesterday. According to the victimised community, a Hindu was killed in the attack.

Representatives of the group of Krishna devotees established by Srila Prabhupada told news agency ANI that they tried to contact Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi so that they could plead with him to take the matter up with his Bangladeshi counterpart Shaikh Hasina Wazed.

The vice-president of ISKCON in Kolkata said he had requested Modi’s secretary to request the prime minister to speak with his Bangladeshi counterpart.

Hasina Wazed had assured a group of Hindus yesterday that if they could enlist all endangered places of worship, the Bangladesh government would try to give those places a security cover.

“It is with great grief that we share the news of an ISKCON member, Partha Das, who was brutally killed yesterday by a mob of over 200 people. His body was found in a pond next to the temple. We call on the Govt of Bangladesh for immediate action in this regard,” the official Twitter handle of ISKCON said.

ISKCON in a further tweet said, “ISKCON temple & devotees were violently attacked today by a mob in Noakhali, Bangladesh. Temple suffered significant damage & the condition of a devotee remains critical. We call on the Govt of Bangladesh to ensure the safety of all Hindus & bring the perpetrators to justice.”

The ISKCON authorities urged the Bangladesh government to immediately take action, ensure the safety of all the Hindus and bring the perpetrators to justice.

The alleged attack on the temple took place despite assurances by Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina of strict action after incidents of communal violence that those who attacked Hindu temples will be hunted down and punished.

Following the reports of the attacks on Hindu temples, the Bangladesh government has beefed up security to facilitate Durga Puja celebrations in the country. The security situation has also prompted the authorities to deploy paramilitary forces and contingents of police across the country.

Local media said that the situation remained grim in Chandpur, Cox’s Bazar, Bandarban, Sylhet, Chittagong and Gazipur after attacks and clashes. The Bangladesh government has assured the country’s Hindu community of improved security and said that Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) troopers were deployed in 22 districts to maintain security.

BGB personnel had been deployed at the request of the deputy commissioners concerned and on instructions from the Home Ministry, said Lt Colonel Faizur Rahman, BGB director of operations.
