Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Tuesday said that the attacks on religious minorities in Bangladesh are part of a larger conspiracy to damage the friendly ties between India and Bangladesh.
Talking to reporters in Agartala, CM Biplab Kumar Deb said, “Both India and Bangladesh share cordial relations for a long time. The fundamentalists hatched a conspiracy to damage the relationship. We have faith that the Bangladesh administration will take strict action regarding such incidents.”
CM Deb said the Bangladesh administration has arrested some people for their involvement in the violence and they allegedly have links with fundamentalist organisations.
“This is a conspiracy of fundamentalist forces hatched through attacks on religious and cultural institutions in Bangladesh during Durga Puja,” said Deb.
The civil society in Tripura, too, has demanded protection for the religious minorities in Bangladesh and the arrest of the perpetrators of the violence.
The violence was triggered on October 15 when hundreds of people protested in Bangladesh’s Noakhali district over the alleged desecration of the Quran.
Many temples were vandalised and many Hindu houses were burnt down in the communal violence. The Hindu families are living in fear and anxiety.
Tripura shares an 856 km long international boundary with Bangladesh.
On the other hand, centre has alerted the BSF for an extra vigil in Indo-Bangladesh border for possible influx of people from Bangladesh.
