During the festival, news of unrest came to the fore from different places of Bangladesh including Comilla, Feni, Rangpur and Chittagong. Homes and shops have been vandalized in several places since the attack on the Iskcon temple. Bangladesh cricket team’s former captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza posted a touching reaction on his personal Facebook account yesterday, rueing the mayhem and carnage carried out against the Hindu community of the country over the last few days.
On Monday, the former captain of the Bangladesh cricket team posted a picture of the house burning in Pirganj on Facebook and wrote, “Saw two defeats last night. One was Bangladesh cricket team’s and that one hurt. The other one was a defeat for the whole of Bangladesh, which tore my heart to pieces. We didn’t want this red and greenSo many dreams, so many hard-earned life war ends in a moment. Allah please guide us.”

According to the Hasina administration, the attack was planned to destroy communal harmony. Bengali actors and actresses have also posted about this incident on Facebook. This time, popular Bangladeshi actress Jaya Ahsan roared on social media. On the day of the violence in Bangladesh, Jaya has started a protest poem on Facebook with a famous poem by Nabarun Bhattacharya. Condemning the communal violence in Bangladesh, she wrote, “This death valley is not my country. This executioner cheer stage is not my country. This vast crematorium is not my country. This bloodbath slaughterhouse is not my country.”
Bangladesh Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan has claimed that the attack in Bangladesh was pre-planned and provocative. The minister of the Hasina government claimed that the purpose of the attackers was to destroy communal harmony. The Bangladesh administration thinks that there is a vested interest behind this. He further added that there was a third party incitement behind the attack. Attempts have been made to disrupt the stability of Bangladesh through violence. The Bangladesh Home Minister also said that the evidence will be made public as soon as it is found and the culprits will be given exemplary punishment.
