BJP today alleged that activists of the fundamentalist organisations like Jamaat, driven out from Bangladesh, were getting shelter in West Bengal and asked the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government to see that the state does not turned into a safe haven for them.
A special resolution adopted at the party’s two-day state executive meeting, which began here today, said, “This meeting demands that West Bengal should not be turned into a haven for terrorist and fundamentalist organisations. The appeasement politics on the basis of religion should be stopped.”
The party alleged that fundamentalist Jamaat activists, who were driven out from Bangladesh, were getting shelter in West Bengal for the “vote bank politics” indulged in by some parties.
“The incidents at Khagragarh and Kaliachak were the examples. We condemn this religion-based secessionist and anti-Hindu politics”.
The party expressed support for “some positive” steps taken by the Bangladesh government to tackle terror unleashed by fundamentalist forces against the minorities.
“Fundamental organisation Jamaat and their supporting parties have unleashed terror and attack against the minorities in Bangladesh. This meeting strongly condemns it,” it said.
“Bangladesh government has taken some positive steps to tackle these fundamentalist organisations and give punishment to the culprits. We support this,” the party noted.
The party felt that organisations like Jamaat had to be totally eliminated and that peace would not return only by punishing the culprits.
“An atmosphere of trust and security has to be created in Bangladesh,” it said.
