Referring to the incidents of communal attacks, Rana Dasgupta said that miscreants open Facebook IDs in the name of poor people of Hindu community to spread propaganda. Later they attack the houses of Hindu community people on the pretext that the religious sentiments of ‘Hindu people’ have been hurt by those Facebook IDs.
He asked how many perpetrators of the communal attack have been arrested so far and how many of them have been punished?
Rana Dasgupta urged political parties not to organize any political program during the Durga Puja festival of the Hindu community. Those who announce any program during the puja will not be considered friends of the minority community.
He urged all parties concerned not to use Hindus as pawns.
Economist Debpriya Bhattacharya asked why the country has become so communal despite the party that led the liberation war, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and its coalition partner the Left parties being in power for 15 years.
