India's guarded reaction over attacks on Hindus in BD

Reactions from the Indian government over the attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh have been guarded and cautious. Hindus in some districts of Bangladesh including Cumilla, Chandpur, Feni, Chittagong and some other places have come under attacks during last several days.

India previously used to send officials from Indian High Commission in Bangladesh to the concerned areas but this time India has not yet done anything like this. India has informed that they have confidence on the steps taken by the Bangladesh government headed by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, reports BBC Bangla.

Foreign affairs experts have said that India does not want to embarrass Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at this critical time. For this reason India is not showing any greater reaction over the damages done to Hindus in Bangladesh recently. 

Sree Radha Dutta, Senior Fellow of VIF, a research organization based in Delhi said that India is worried over the communal violence in Bangladesh but the Indian government does not intend to cause any diplomatic inconvenience to Bangladesh government at this moment.

India has full trust on Bangladesh government. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has meanwhile stated that exemplary punishment will be enforced on the culprits who are responsible for communal mayhem in Bangladesh. Foreign affairs analysts have also said that there was not enough information from intelligence wings in advance about the assaults on Hindus and their properties in Bangladesh. 

It is being presumed that the communal quarters of Bangladesh have gathered motivation from the revival of Taliban, a radical Islamic group, in Afghanistan. Prominent citizens have advised Bangladesh government to keep sharp eyes on the prevailing situation so that unwanted things do not happen again.
