Bangladesh: Muslim mobs vandalize Hindu temples over Qur’an desecration

Published

The temples that have been ransacked had nothing to do with the video that has enraged the Muslim mobs, but that is of no importance. Jihadis and Islamic supremacists routinely traffic in the collective guilt that Muslims falsely claim they have been subjected to in the U.S. since 9/11.

“Deadly violence in Bangladesh over Quran ‘desecration,’” AFP, October 14, 2021:

Bangladesh police shot dead four people as hundreds vandalized several Hindu temples across the Muslim-majority country.

Police opened fire on a mob of over 500 people late on Oct. 13 following a furore over footage of a Quran being placed on the knee of a figure of the Hindu monkey god Hanuman during a religious festival.

In the main incident, the mob attacked a Hindu temple and clashed with police in the southern town of Hajiganj, leaving four dead and nearly two dozen injured, including 15 police officers, local police chief Milon Mahmud told AFP.

A police inspector confirmed the four were shot dead.

Police said the local magistrate had ordered a ban on gatherings in the area and seven people had been arrested.

Bangladesh’s government ordered a probe into the violence, saying in a statement that anyone involved would be punished and asking people to maintain order. “The government has urged everyone to keep religious harmony, peace and security,” it said.

Another Hindu temple was attacked in the eastern district of Cumilla, where the alleged desecration of the Islamic holy book took place, police inspector Monir Ahmed told AFP.

“The situation is peaceful now. Hundreds of policemen, elite Rapid Action Battalion and the border guards have been deployed,” he said, adding at least 40 people had been arrested.

Police also clashed with hundreds of people in the northeastern town of Zakiganj after a crowd gathered in the town center to protest.

“Several people and a couple of police officers were injured. The mob attacked and vandalized police and local administrators’ cars. We have deployed extra police,” deputy police chief Lutfar Rahman said.

The Daily Star newspaper reported that idols of Hindu gods and temples were vandalized in two northern rural districts while authorities increased security in the southern city of Chittagong, which is home to a sizable Hindu population….
