Islamic fundamentalists continue to persecute the Hindu minority in Bangladesh. This time, a group of mad Islamic fundamentalists attacked the house of a Hindu teacher, accusing him of insulting Islam. Slogans demanding the hanging of the Hindu teacher continued. The incident took place in Daudkandi Upazila of Comilla yesterday, after a huge police force controlled the frenzied crowd.
It is known that Pritam Sarkar is a teacher at Dr. Mosharf Hossain High School in Daudkandi Upazila in the Comilla district of Bangladesh. Allegedly, the teacher insulted Islam and the Prophet Muhammad while teaching. The Islamic fundamentalists went berserk before verifying the truth of that allegation.
Yesterday, on February 13, a group of Islamic fundamentalists surrounded the teacher’s house and demanded the teacher’s execution by chanting “Allahu Akbar.” There were even slogans to “skin Pritam alive.” Later, the police reached the scene and brought the situation under control.
It should be noted that in recent times, Hindu teachers are being targeted in Bangladesh for insulting Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. Earlier on January 29, Islamic fundamentalists marched to demand the hanging of science teacher Newton Sarkar in Jessore’s Abhaynagar upazila on charges of insulting Islam. The teacher was dismissed after receiving that complaint.
