Rana Ayyub praises Bangladeshi cricketer Mortuza for condemning attacks on Hindus in his country

Journalist Rana Ayyub praises Bangladeshi cricketer Mashrafe Mortuza for raising his voice and condemning attacks on Hindus in the country.

Sharing a news report on her Twitter, ‘So many dreams lost in a flash’: Bangladesh cricketer Mortaza condemned attacks on Hindus,’ Rana Ayyub said, “Proud of you Murtaza. Now name me one Indian cricketer, sportsman who has condemned the everyday communal violence in India under Modi.”

In a Facebook post written in Bangla, the former Bangladesh cricket captain Mortaza condemned the recent attacks against the Hindu community in his country, saying that this is “not the red and green we wanted to see.”

He further said this is the loss of an entire nation. “We witnessed two losses yesterday. One was Bangladesh cricket team’s, which was painful. The other was of the whole Bangladesh – one that has shattered my heart. This is not the red and green we wanted to see. So many dreams, so many hard-earned victories lost in a flash. May Allah guide us,” Mortaza wrote.

Last week, 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. 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.
