Silchar: The repeated instances of persecution of religious minority in Bangladesh is quite disturbing. The recent gruesome murder of activist advocate Palash Kumar Roy of Jatiya Hindu Mahajot is both shocking and alarming. In this regard, Dr Rajdeep Roy who is the managing trustee of Bimolangshu Roy Foundation, Bilpar, Silchar, took up the matter and wrote to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Geneva, urging protecting of human rights. Dr Roy is also the BJP MP candidate contesting from Silchar. He complained against this grave violation of human rights in Bangladesh.
Palash Kumar Roy was an honest, upright and above all popular leader of Jatiya Hindu Mahajot in Bangladesh who espoused the cause of persecuted religious minorities of Bangladesh. Palash Kumar Roy has been arrested on false charges or allegations for passing some remarks against the present Prime Minister of Bangladesh and was kept in a jail in Panchagarh district of Bangladesh from April 26. There he was brutally murdered by locking him inside a toilet and pouring petrol on his body and setting him on fire. Dr Roy ruefully stated that incidents of rape and murder, looting of property of religious minorities and damaging idols of Hindu deities in Bangladesh are on the rise.
Such gruesome incidents have instilled feelings of apprehension and fear into the minds of the people belonging to the religious minority in Bangladesh. Dr Rajdeep Roy urged upon the authorities concerned to impress upon the government of Bangladesh to take immediate concrete steps to deal with these grave incidents of human rights violations in the country of Bangladesh. He also impressed upon the need of setting up of a Minority Commission in Bangladesh so that the commission can deal with such atrocities. A copy of the letter has been sent to the Bangladesh High Commission.
