BJP meets Bangladesh envoy over attacks on Hindus
Thursday November 7, 2013 0:25 AM, IANS

A Bharatiya Janata Party delegation Wednesday met Bangladesh High Commissioner Mahbub Hassan Saleh and lodged a protest over attacks on Hindus in that country.

The delegation was led by BJP's convenor of overseas affairs Vijay Jolly.

"He (Jolly) pointed out that the minority Hindu community in Bangladesh today lives in the shadow of fear," a statement released to the press said.

"The Hindus in Bangladesh are regular victims of communal violence. Desecration of Hindu deities in Bangladesh is reported in the media repeatedly. Hindu families are identified, targeted, threatened and forced to convert," the statement said.
