On 4th of June,2014 at about 8 a.m to 9 a.m. a groups of Muslim perpetrators armed with sharp weapons, Iron Rod, Lathi, and country made gun attacked Minority Hindus located at Fatehabad village within Municipal area of Comilla district.
Bangladesh minority watch (BDMW) immediately communicated with S.P. Comilla and Officer in charge of Debidwar police station who confirmed that two perpetrators have been arrested in this connection.
It is also alleged that 25 - 30 Muslim Perpetrators attacked on Hindu Minorities physically for protesting illegal activities on Hindu girl from harassment or eve teasing. They also became angry because they were prohibited from doing illegal activities beside the Hindu temple "Lokanath Brammachari Temple". On the date of event they attacked on the Hindu houses and the guests of the said temple. While those victims were sleeping at  their houses at night, even on the next day at 8.30 A.M they have beaten Shajal Dutta(50) while he was going to shop at the nearest market.

BDMW have decided to investigate the incident at the spot soon. It is also unfortunate that recently at Homna Upazila, Comilla District 35 houses of Hindu Community were attacked and looted on the ground of blasphemy. Recently BDMW and BCHRDsubmitted a writ petition before High Court on May 12. Following the writ petition, the High Court ordered the government to provide protection to Hindu minorities and their households in Comilla, but it is unfortunate that the government totally failed to protect the Minority communities at Debidwar Upazila, Comill District despite High court order is in existence.
BDMW is also very much concerned with the repeated attack on Hindu Minorities at Comilla. BDMW demand a immediate drastic action against the perpetrators responsible for eve teasing, attack on Women and Children, injuring inmates of the houses and they should be brought to book as per law.

With Best Regards
