Muslim mob vandalises 26 Hindu houses in Bangladesh.

published on November 4, 2013
A mob went on a rampage in a Hindu-dominated neighbourhood in a village in Bangladesh’s Pabna district following reports that a boy from the minority community had committed blasphemy, prompting the country’s High Court to order arrest of attackers within 24 hours.

The mob attacked the Hindu neighborhood at Bonogram village in Santhia upazila in Pabna district on Saturday, vandalising 26 houses, damaging several idols and forcing about 150 families to flee the area.

The incident prompted the High Court to take suo motu cognisance, asking the Inspector General of Police to ensure the arrest of the culprits within 24 hours and deployment of adequate police forces in the area to protect the minorities.

“We have arrested nine of the perpetrators of the attack in the past two days and are looking for the others,” officer in-charge of the local police station Rezaul Karim said.

He said that most of the suspects belonged to supporters or activists of main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party or their crucial ally Jamaat-e-Islami while the scene was the home of the fundamentalist party’s chief Matiur Rahman Nizami, who is being tried for 1971 crimes against humanity.

“The situation here is now normal,” Karim said.

The High Court bench comprising judges Quazi Reza-Ul Hoque and ABM Altaf Hossain also asked the police chief to launch a probe into the attack and assess the amount of loss it caused and submit the report before the court.

The media reports, meanwhile, came up with a finding that a group of extortionists, mostly belonging to the BNP and their fundamentalist ally Jamaat-e-Islami, had planned to frame Hindu schoolboy Rajib Saha for maligning Islam after his businessman father refused to pay them.

The Daily Star newspaper said it found that the Facebook page, photocopies of which were used to incite the attacks, had no links with Rajib.

    Jihadi Bengali
    Hindus who were converted to Islam are really strange people. Although, according to all laws of classical sociology and ethnology as well as common sense they should remain an integral part of the Indian people and nationalism, in fact, just the opposite occurs.

    As soon as yesterday’s Hindu adopts Islam, he undergoes such an amazing transformation that can be only compared to the phenomenon that zoologists call metamorphosis. The typical peaceful Bengalee, with soft, harmonious facial features, in which every educated inhabitant of our world would unmistakably recognize a child of the Indian plains, will adopt fully the typical appearance of an Arab in just a couple of months from his clothing, through the expression of his face & to his manners. His countenance will become soon hard and harsh; a typical feature of the Semitic race from the Middle East and in his bloody gaze severe and imperious & anyone will be able to see unmistakably the fanatical flame so characteristic for all Jihadis.

    Before long, the newly fledged Indian Jihadi will start not only to resemble a black Arab, but also to feel and think like a mad lunatic. His emotional nature will become turbulent & untamed, his reactions vicious & yesterday’s quiet man, the most peaceful creature on the planet, will start shaking fists in the streets, shouting with bloodshot eyes & spurting saliva from his mouth like a mad dog “Kill the infidels! & Allah is great”! He will abandon his people’s traditional alphabet devanagari that his Hindu ancestors have used for centuries& will adopt the Arabic script. And, to top it all, he will completely alter his name. If he was named with some beautiful Indian names like Satischandra Datta or Dhirendranath Chatterjee, now he will call himself Abdul Rashid or Ibn Abi al Hussein. To adopt the name of some mythical personage of the early Muslim history like Muhammad or Ali would be understandable & could be justified
