“Many places of worship, houses of Hindus destroyed”

The BJP on Sunday demanded that the Union government seriously take up with Bangladesh the recent attacks on minority Hindus there by activists of fundamentalist forces.

A resolution adopted by the National Executive of the party here said many places of worship and houses of Hindus had been destroyed and they also suffered physical assault.

It is for the second day, the BJP raised an issue pertaining to Bangladesh.

In his inaugural address to the Council on Saturday, party president Rajnath Singh accused the government of India of going soft on “Bangladeshi infiltration’ and asserted that they should be deported without exception. If infiltration is not checked, the North-East would be in flames, and linked the recent violence in Assam to “Bangladeshi infiltration.”

“Now Bangladeshis are spreading in Tripura, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh apart from Assam… If the UPA government doesn’t take this into cognisance and reins in illegal infiltration, then North-East will be in flames,” he said.
