Star Country Desk

Members of Gonojagoron Mancha visited the Hindu areas allegedly attacked by BNP and Jamaat-Shibir men in Dianjpur and Thakurgaon districts yesterday and vowed to continue their movement against communalism.
They visited Kornai village in Sadar upazila of Dinajpur yesterday morning and held a rally organised by local unit of the Mancha, reports our correspondent.
Dr Emran H Sarker, spokesman of Gonojagoron Mancha, at the rally said their agitation would continue until the attack on minority communities across the country comes to a halt forever.
The Jamaat-Shibir men carried out the attack on Hindu people since the trial of war criminals began in the country, he said.
Imran alleged that since 1990, many such attacks took place on Hindus across the country but none of the attackers were brought to justice.
He demanded a special tribunal to try the culprits of communal attacks.
After the rally, they visited the houses and shops damaged, torched and looted at Kornai village during the post-poll violence.


In Thakurgaon, Sarker yesterday demanded immediate ban on Jamaat-Shibir politics for the sake of communal harmony, reports our correspondent.
He came up with the call at a rally on Thakurgaon District Central Shaheed Minar premises in the evening.
The spokesman of the Mancha also urged the politicians to cut ties with the evil forces.
'We are here to convey this message to all the minority people that 16 crore people of the country are with you,' Imran said.
Earlier, the road march visited Goreya Gopalpur village in Sadar upazila where the Hindu families came under the attack by Jamaat-BNP men during the January 5 post-election violence.
