Hindus tortured, murdered in Bangladesh, where are human rights activists?

Chandina: Muslims are extorting money from Hindus. A viral video on Twitter shows a woman and a young girl crying, narrating the crime committed against them. The user “Avro Nil Hindu” mentions in their Twitter bio that they are from Bangladesh and also an online Hindu activist. It is their moral duty to bring to light incidents of Hindu persecution in the country. They have shared this video to raise awareness.

The caption of the viral video states that a Hindu named Bikash Chandra Das was brutally harassed and killed for not paying a ransom. Dishonest Hindu businessmen and deceitful Hindu leaders are taking advantage of the vulnerability of ordinary Hindus and putting them in danger. The government has not provided any help either. Muslims are tormenting Hindus, extorting money from them, and if a Hindu cannot pay, they are killed.

Muslims also do not pay money when purchasing goods from Hindu shops. They call it “Janam-Baki,” meaning they owe it by birth. Hindus are beaten and humiliated when they ask for payment.

There is no decision, no solution! Distressed Hindus turn to Hindu organizations in the hope of receiving assistance. Enemies are seizing ancestral and reserved Hindu properties and homes. Poor Hindus sustain their livelihood through small businesses and jobs. If there is forced extortion and the sole earning member of a family is killed, how will the family survive?

In Chandina, the Hindu community is living in fear and facing economic hardships due to forced extortion and violence by certain individuals. Viral videos remind them of the plight of Hindus, who are being targeted for their religious identity. Lack of support from the government further worsens the situation, making Hindus feel weak and marginalized.

Refusing payment for goods purchased from shops owned by Hindus not only causes financial losses but also perpetuates injustice and inequality. The “janam-baki” system perpetuates a sense of ownership among some Muslim individuals, leading to mistreatment and disrespect towards Hindu shopkeepers.

In such circumstances, distressed Hindus turn to Hindu organizations for support and hope to receive reassurance and assistance in protecting their rights and well-being. However, constant encroachment on Hindu properties and the struggles for a livelihood by poor Hindus present a grim picture of their daily challenges. It is important to recognize that this account presents a specific perspective, and understanding the broader context requires considering multiple viewpoints and seeking information from reliable sources.
