New trend of minority repression in Bangladesh

By Jahangir Alam Akash, The Trend of fraudulent conversion by Muslims personifying Hindu adolescent girls increased abnormally at Joypurhat in Bangladesh. In those areas, a sense of insecurity prevails amongst the Hindu communities due to such unabated trend. The local administration also failed to give adequate protection to victim families of Hindu communities.

Ms.Purnima Rani –daughter of Dulal Roy of Chitra Para-Joypurhat town was missing having false promise of matrimonial function with Hindu boy. The Muslim perpetrator is a relative of a very powerful Juba League Leader of Joypurhat. Ms.Purnima Rani could not be recovered despite desperate arbitration with the powerful Awami League Leaders was held several times. Sometimes, the police on duty also neglect to register any case against those perpetrators. Although case was registered after hectic endeavour, but the perpetrators start intimidating the victim’s family constantly. So, a sense of insecurity amongst the Hindu communities prevails. It also indicates a forceful conversion after allurement and false personification.

Similarly Ms.Nabami Sarkar –daughter of Akhil Sarkar of village Aimar Rasulpur have been the victim of fraudulent events of such circumstances and Ms.Krishna Rani and Ms. Prativa Rani of Govindapur also become target of such trend.

A process of fraudulent conversion with intent to deceive minority girls is going on with Ms.Shika Debnath daughter of Ms.Mina Debnath of village Shaljune of the same Upazila.

Police shows negative response on this particular minority issue if the case is filed at the respective police station.

As discontentment prevailed amongst Hindu minorities then the police on 1st October, 09 most reluctantly detained Ms.Purnima Roy daughter of Dulal Roy with wearing Burkha under veil covered by her face and body. Thereafter she was produced before court and the court sent her to judicial custody.

A Muslim shrewd boy got a Hindu girl- Krisna Rani Protiva into a trap in the same village of Kusumba Union of Govindapur and later abducted her and absconding. The elder brother of the victim girl protested against this sort of trap and as a result the perpetrators on behalf of the Muslim boy assaulted the victim’s brother. In this connection although case was recorded but police kept them silent. Later on the local people recovered this unfortunate girl.

The leaders of the minority community informed that police kept mum due to direct indulgence of the political leaders now in power this unfortunate fraudulent conversion is on high.

This harmful trend of fraudulent conversion of school and college going girls belonging to minorities reminded the incidents of repression of the perpetrators of four party alliances during the year, 2001-2006. Now this issue has been the subject matter of discussions amongst every body.

Advocate Nripendra Nath Mondal – President of BHBC Unity Council of Joypurhat expressed deep concern about this harmful trend of conversion while attention was drawn on this point.

As a result helpless Hindu father and mother are now in great distress with their adolescent daughters.
