Protect Bangladesh Hindus
In the last ten days, the Hindu community has been under attack in Bangladesh; a continuance of targeted acts of violence against minorities over many years. Temples like that of ISKCON among others were vandalized, Deities were smashed, puja pandals of Durga Devi were burnt, homes, shops and individuals were attacked and killed across several districts of the country. The worldwide International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) community is shocked and saddened by the recent series of violent events directed against the Hindu minority in Bangladesh, including our own ISKCON temples and members. ISKCON calls upon the Bangladesh government to take swift action to bring an end to the violence against minorities that has undermined the peace and well-being of Bangladeshi society and to take tangible steps to ensure the long-term safety and well-being of all Bangladeshi citizens. That includes to: 1. Bring to justice the perpetrators of these recent terrible crimes. The criminals behind these murderous attacks must be held accountable and punished to the fullest extent of the law. 2. Take immediate, tangible, and substantial steps to provide security to minorities in Bangladesh, including Hindus, Christians, and Buddhists This petition is a heartfelt request to the Bangladesh government and all the peace-loving people of Bangladesh and the world to kindly support the Hindus in Bangladesh and bring an end to the violence against minorities. We request you to sign this petition and show your support for the Hindus and other minorities in Bangladesh.
