Bangladesh has seen an increase in attacks on Hindu temples since last Wednesday after a social media post appeared showing the Quran kept in a Durga Puja pandal. 66 houses were damaged; and at least 20 Hindu homes were set ablaze late on Sunday night.
Police reported that there have been over 450 arrests in different parts of the country for suspected temple attacks. The Comilla incident led to the arrests of 41 people, including four of Hossain’s friends.
It has been ordered by Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, that those who incite violence with religion will face immediate action.
People are also urged not to believe anything; they find on social media without fact-checking it. 169 million people live in Bangladesh, and 10 percent of them are Hindus.
