Amid a wave of brutal killings of Hindus and secular writers in Bangladesh, Hindu Jagran Manch, a right wing organisation, today requested its government to take steps to ensure safety and security of Hindus living in that country.

“The Bangladesh government should take steps to ensure safety and security of the Hindus. The Indian government should also take up the matter with Bangladesh,” Nishit Dutta, West Bengal secretary of Hindu Jagran Manch, said.

Protesters carrying placards against killing of Hindus in Bangladesh marched from College square to Rani Rashmoni road. The leaders of Hindu Jagran Manch are also slated to submit a deputation to Bangladesh consulate here.

A 60-year-old Hindu ashram worker, Nityaranjan Pandey, was hacked to death on June 10 by suspected Islamic militants, becoming the fourth person from the minority community to be killed in a series of brutal attacks on secular activists in the Muslim-majority Bangladesh.

Pandey’s murder comes within a week of killing of a Hindu priest, a Christian grocer and wife of an anti-terror police officer.

In February, militants stabbed to death a Hindu priest at a temple and shot and wounded a devotee who went to his aid.

In April, a liberal professor was brutally hacked to death in Rajshahi city.

In the same month, a Hindu tailor was hacked to death in his shop and Bangladesh’s first gay magazine editor was brutally murdered along with a friend in his flat in Dhaka by Islamist forces.

Bangladesh has also seen a series of attacks on secular and liberal bloggers in 2015.
