I was attacked by Jihadis on number of occasions while working for ‘Hindutva’ in Bangladesh; but I am still alive because of blessings of all you. I visited many districts in Bangladesh; observed the condition of Hindus. Many Hindus have been killed in Islamic attacks. Many times, we met the local leaders. I have been trying to do something for those Hindus for number of years. High Court has also asked the Government to treat Hindus with humanity; still, atrocities against Hindus are growing. We went to England, to USA to make them aware of Hindus’ sufferings; met even India’s President, Pranab Mukherjee. Hindu girls have to face molestation in Bangladesh. One girl was molested and then she was killed. One girl was kidnapped while she was going to school. One woman was raped by 4 persons. They attacked Hindus with iron rods and guns and oppressed women and children of Hindus. The Government did not extend any help to aggrieved people; not even medical treatment. Police could not find culprits in any of the cases. This time, Jihadis burnt even houses of Hindus. 2900 Hindu families were oppressed; 1690 idols of Hindu Deities were destroyed; 3100 temples were demolished. Many national newspapers are constantly publishing news about the same; but the Government has been turning blind eye.

In Bangladesh, Population of Hindus was 39 % earlier which has now come down to 9.46 %. Those Hindus say that they want to stay there only; because they want undivided Hindu Rashtra.
When Hindus will learn to retaliate, there will be undivided Hindu Rashtra ! – Shri. Upanand Brahmachari

We can send study team to Bangladesh that can check the condition of Hindus from there and visit can be arranged with Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, to whom a report on such study can be submitted. We need to keep a watch on what is happening to Hindus. Hindus from all places should be safe. Study should be undertaken even to see the position of Hindus from Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal. If Hindus get ready to retaliate, we can bring them together from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan and Afghanistan even in such difficult condition; but for that, all of us need to take initiative.
Agitations staged in India, created change in Government’s stance towards advocate Rabindra Ghosh in Bangladesh ! – Shri. Chittaranjan Sural

On 27th July 2013, an attempt was made to kill advocate Rabindra Ghosh, the President of ‘Bangladesh Minority Watch’ by poisoning him. Then, an agitation was staged in front of Bangladesh consulate in Kolkata under Rashtreeya Hindu Andolan. Various pro-Hindu organizations divided tasks among them like printing of handbills, taking permission from Government authorities etc. Hindu Existence, all-India Banga Nagarik Sangh, Hindu Sanghati, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Sanatan Sanstha etc. all such pro-Hindu organizations and Saints came together to stage agitation. Before we reached the venue of agitation, police had cordoned off the whole area and it looked like a military camp. Still, Hindu Organizations reached there. The Consulate had told us that they would accept our representation; but its acknowledgement would not be given as that was not the practice followed by them. Later, however, when they saw unification of Hindus on such large scale, one police officer himself went to the Consulate for handing over the representation and he brought even their acknowledgement.

People may feel that what the outcome of such agitation staged in India was. After the agitation, we asked advocate Ghosh. He said that earlier he was looked down upon in Bangladesh because he was working for Hindus; but now, he is being felicitated. The Government has now realized that Ghosh is not alone; pro-Hindu organizations from India are with him. If one agitation can show its effects in Bangla Desh, will it not have any effect in Hindustan ?
We will extend support to Hindus from all over the world ! – Acharya Yogesh Shastri

The pace with which Jihadi population is growing in India; with the same pace, population of Hindus is reducing in Bangladesh. It is time to do what Madanlal Dhingra had done. Hindu refugees coming from Bangladesh, being fed up of the atrocities, are put in jail here. This is Hindu Rashtra. Hindus oppressed in other countries will come to India; else, where will they go? Hindus from Pakistan had gone to Kashmir where they were not given shelter; therefore, they came to Delhi. Why Hindus from India are not in a position to offer them shelter ? Our culture is expansive. We can extend support to Hindus not only from Bangladesh but Hindus from all over the world.
