BNP standing committee has demanded the government identify the real offenders involved in the attack, vandalizing and looting Hindu houses in Noagaon village of Sunamganj’s Shalla upazila through a fair and neutral investigation, reports UNB.
At a virtual meeting on Sunday, the BNP policymakers strongly condemned the incident and said the government must shoulder the responsibility for it, the opposition party said in a media release.
“The meeting thinks this illegal and autocratic Awami League government is making evil efforts to take political advantage by shifting blame onto opposition parties after creating communal problems in a traditional way,” it said.
“The government must take all the responsibilities for destroying such communal harmony,” the BNP standing committee members said. Referring to media reports, they said it is clear that such an attack took place at the instigation and under the leadership of an Awami Juba League leader.
The BNP policymakers called for bringing the offenders to justice and urged ministers to refrain from blaming the opposition for the incident.
