Senior Correspondent: Bangladesh Islami Front has organised a human chain demanding trial of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), an organisation for Hindu community, for its alleged role in destroying communal harmony in Bangladesh.
Leaders of the Islami organisation came up with the demand while addressing a human chain organised in front of the National Press Club in the capital on Friday.
In the human chain, speakers said, “Bangladesh is the unique model of communal harmony. People living here in Bangladesh abide by the beliefs and customs set by their religion. ISKCON is allegedly involved in forcing students of schools in Chattogram to recite a mantra ‘Hare Krishna Hare Rama’ and take ‘prasad’. We demand quick trial of ISKCON.”
