PM orders Stern action against those involved in communal attacks

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today asked Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan to take immediate action against the perpetrators involved in the recent vandalism at Puja Mandaps and arson attack on the houses of the Hindu community.

"She (Prime Minister) has again given clear instruction to the Home Minister to take stern actions against those who are behind the incidents as soon as possible, completing investigations," said Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam. He briefed the newsmen after the virtual cabinet meeting.

The prime minister chaired the regular cabinet meeting, joining remotely from her official residence Ganabhaban as her cabinet colleagues were present at the secretariat.

The cabinet secretary said the premier asked the home ministry to investigate the issues promptly and take action against those who initiated the incidents. 

He said the religious and political personalities were simultaneously requested to raise public awareness, not to show a reaction to any "small twisting act" of anyone.

Khandker Anwarul said something might be found out within the very shortest time over the Cumilla incident.

He said holy Islam doesn't give the authority to any Muslim to go for destructive acts in case of defamation of the religion. It is quite unacceptable to Islam, he added.

".....they can stage protests and place demands before the government for exposing the perpetrators to justice and giving them punishment," he said.

In case of defamation of the Holy Quran, he said, the Quran doesn't give anyone the authority to destroy anything of other religion.
