Special correspondent, STV: During the period of this log down last Thursday (23.04.2020) in Hazrabari area of Dhaluabari village in Jamalpur district of Bangladesh, a very old Shiva temple ,under Melandah police station was demolished by Nurul Islam and his associates which was also forcefully occupied by Islamic fundamentalists Advocate Rabindra gosh said that,
Our Mymensingh representative Shri Liton Chandra Das gave me this news this evening. It is to be noted that a case was filed earlier for stealing a precious Shiva Linga of made of valuable stone from this temple. Later, the police recovered the Shiva Linga from Melandha Thana. The Shiva Linga was handed over to the Jamalpur Dayamayi temple for security reasons. The Shiva Linga is now established at the Dayamayi temple at Jamalpur. Moreover,
he said- I Adv. Rabindra Ghosh on behalf of – Minority Watch in Bangladesh spoke to the Deputy Commissioner of Jamalpur District Md. Enamul Haque (01713061100). Deputy Commissioner Melandah Upazila asked me to talk to Upazila Executive Officer Mohammad Tamim Al Amin. I spoke to Mr. Tamim Al Amin on his mobile and he told us that he did not know anything about the matter. Talking to Melandah Police Officer-in-Charge Md. Rezaul Karim on my mobile phone about this unfortunate incident,
he told me that “no one has filed a case in this regard or sought my cooperation” . We have nothing to do.” He said, “You see what is happening in India , do you know “I told Mr. OC that it was very unfair to compare India and Bangladesh, he said more angrily,”
Are you aware about the news from India. What do you keep silent ? The communal mentality of such a government official like Md.Rezaul Karim weakens the minds of the minorities.” While I tried to call Superintendent of Police-Jamalpur four times to inform this unfortunate communal argument of O.C. He did not hold his mobile phone (01713373532). Minority Watch hopes to immediately arrest the culprits,
demand protection of the Shiva temple where it was, and demand that the government take legal action against the perpetrators by rescuing the Temple. Every Hindu religious institutions should be protected and religious harmony should be restored maintaining religious tolerance. The Shiva Temple at Jamalpur should be rebuilt for peaceful co-existence.
