In a statement, the front condemned the heinous attacks on the minority community.
It alleged that the government has failed to ensure the security for the Hindu community members.
“We’ve observed with concern that the religious minorities come under attack whenever the country falls in any political crisis. Efforts have been made reportedly to divert people’s attention to a different direction using the religious minorities as a political weapon,” the statement said.
It also observed the members of the Hindu community are being persecuted as various vested quarters are indulging in blame game over the incidents.
The minority communities in Jessore, Dinajpur, Satkhira, Chittagong, Gaibandha and Thakurgaon districts came under attacks by miscreants following the 10th parliamentary elections held on Sunday amid the boycott by the opposition parties, including BNP.
Both the ruling and opposition parties are holding each other responsible for the attacks.
In the statement, the Kalyan Front alleged that the members of Hindu communities in Jessore, Dinajpur, Satkhira, Chittagong, Gaibandha and Thakurgaon districts are suffering from the sense of insecurity.
Calling upon the government to take quick action against those involved in communal attacks, the front called upon the country’s people to stand beside the affected minority communities.
Kalyan Front convener Advocate Gautam Chakraborty, adviser Nitai Roy Chowdhury, joint convener Ganesh Hawlader, central leaders Jointa Kumar Kunda and Arpana Roy Das and Nitai Gosh, among other, signed the statement.
