iskcon: Mob attack ISKCON temple and devotees in Bangladesh’s Noakhali, 1 killed | India News


NEW DELHI: The temple and devotees of ISKCON were violently attacked by a mob in Noakhali, Bangladesh on Friday.

The temple authority said, ISKCON member, Partha Das was brutally killed by a mob of over 200 people yesterday.
His body was found in a pond next to the temple, the authority added. “We call on the government of Bangladesh for immediate action,” the ISKCON said on Twitter.

This comes after tensions erupted among a faction of locals in Cumilla on Wednesday after news broke on social media about the alleged desecration of the Holy Quran at a Durga Puja venue on the bank of Nanuar Dighi.
Similar incidents also occurred in different districts across the country on Wednesday night and Thursday, leading the government to deploy Border Guard Bangladesh troopers in 22 districts alongside additional law enforcement officials.
Several puja venues were vandalized in the area of Chandpur, Chittagong, Gazipur, Bandarban, Chapainawabganj, and Moulvibazar. The clashes resulted in several casualties, reported Dhaka Tribune.
