Swamy questions BJP’s silence on attacks on Hindus

Swamy asked why the BJP government was not protesting the genocide of Hindus and wondered if India was afraid of Bangladesh


Rajya Sabha and former Union Minister Subramanian Swamy questioned the ruling BJP for its silence on the issue of the spate of attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh, asking whether “we are afraid” of the neighbouring country.

“Why is the BJP govt not protesting on the issue of the developing genocide of Hindus in Bangladesh? Are we afraid of BD? After the fear of Chinese aggression in Ladakh, we are cowed by Taliban take over of Afghanistan and want to talk with them. Will we be next afraid of Maldives?” Subramanian Swamy tweeted on 20 October.

India has so far been guarded in its response to the violent incidents, with the MEA saying the Indian mission was in close contact with the Bangladeshi authorities over the matter.

“We have seen some disturbing reports of untoward incidents involving attacks on religious gatherings in Bangladesh. We note that the government of Bangladesh has reacted promptly to ensure control of the situation, including the deployment of law enforcement machinery,” the MEA said last week.

On 17 October night, a mob damaged 66 houses and set at least 20 homes of Hindus ablaze in Bangladesh.
