Advocate Rabindra Ghosh shares more news of attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh! These attacks are occurring within a relatively short period of time and are not given proper attention by the police or government! The people are left to rebuild their lives with little to no assistance! We are actively raising our voice against such atrocities! The International community must take notice that such attacks are occurring against all non-Muslims. These people are citizens who live in the same country! They should not be continually harassed for any reason and their Holy Shrines should never be touched! These attacks are numerous violations of the inalienable Human Rights of these people according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the UN Charter! It cannot be ignored any longer! It can no longer be accepted! IUFE supports Advocate Rabindra Ghosh and Bangladesh Minority Watch in their efforts against these violent acts!
