‘If we don’t feel another human’s pain we’re nothing but animals’: Bengaluru Muslims on violence against Bangladesh Hindus

Muslims in Bengaluru have condemned and protested against the recent violence on Hindus of Bangladesh, the peaceful March was carried outside the premises of Masjid-e-Khadriya on Wednesday, in which several Muslims participated and raised their voice against the oppression of minorities in the neighbouring country.

One the protestors told Vartha Bharati, “We saw what happened in Bangladesh. So, this is solidarity with the Hindus and minorities in Bangladesh who’ve been attacked for no fault of theirs, because they’ve been oppressed over there.”

“Incidents can happen anywhere, the point is we’re humans and if we don’t feel another human’s pain we’re nothing but animals,” he said.

Let us hope they’ve an impact atleast, the Muslim protestor said adding, “Each drop makes an ocean. We’ve have started it today over here, it could start in other cities, states, countries and then it’ll put pressure on the government to act and make sure nothing like this happens ever again. That’s the reason we’re over here, saying, we’re standing with the oppressed. Because if we don’t and be silent, then we’re the oppressors. We can’t be silent on any oppression. We have to be against oppression,” he added.

Communal tensions in Bangladesh supposedly flamed when a copy of the Quran was placed at a Durga Puja pandal in Nanua Dighir Par in Comilla district on October 17. Since then, incidents of vandalism have been reported from several parts of the country.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also condemned the communal violence and said that the culprits would not be spared. Nearly 72 cases have been registered so far and 475 persons have been arrested in regards to the violence in various parts of Bangladesh.
