AGARTALA | August 9, 2019 (IANS):

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has demanded intervention of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to check the alleged distress and persecution of Hindus in that country, a party leader said on Friday.

VHP leader Abhijit Datta Bhowmik said that the outfit wrote to Hasina on Thursday through the Bangladesh Assistant High Commission in Agartala, urging her to stop miseries and distress of Hindus in Bangladesh.

Datta Bhowmik said it is a matter of great concern that the Hindu population has declined in Bangladesh from 28 per cent in 1947 to just 8.9 per cent of late. The VHP memorandum said that Hindus’ places of worship are often vandalised by hooligans without any provocation.
