Shubhendu Adhikari has said in a letter to PM Narendra Modi, “I would like to draw your attention to the vandalism of idols in puja pandals during Durga Puja in Bangladesh. Radical forces have become accustomed to attacking the Sanatani community in Bangladesh. During Durga Puja, when the procession was going out, the extremist forces broke the Durga Puja pandals and idols. Presently the condition of Sanatani people living in Bangladesh is very pathetic. Many Sanatani people who have been victims of attacks and suffering in Bangladesh. Many of them have crossed the border and settled in West Bengal. They are continuously making a plea to stand with the suffering Sanatani people of Bangladesh. I urge that you take immediate and necessary steps in this regard, so that the Sanatani people living in Bangladesh can get relief.

Many puja pavilions were vandalized on the occasion of idol immersion on the day of Ashtami. Hindus are now guarding the puja mandaps. Today the whole world is silent. May Maa Durga keep her blessings on all the Hindus of the world. Never forgive.’ The council said in a tweet that good Muslims are still alive in Bangladesh that is why we are alive. Thanks to all the Muslims who stood with the Hindus. We also respect Islam. We love Quran too. Islam never supports it.
