Train, Temples Attacked As Bangladesh

Dhaka: (HRNW) Hundreds of members of a hardline Islamist group attacked Hindu temples and a train in eastern Bangladesh on Sunday, the police and a local journalist said, as violence spread across the country in the wake of a visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Local police and doctors have said at least 11 protesters have been killed since Friday in clashes with police during demonstrations organised by Islamist groups against PM Modi’s visit. Violence has raged on since PM Modi’s departure as anger has swelled over the deaths.

PM Modi arrived in Dhaka on Friday to mark the 50th anniversary of Bangladesh’s nationhood, and he left on Saturday after gifting Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina some 12 lakh COVID-19 vaccine shots.
