Persecution of Hindu minorities never ceases in Muslim-majority Bangladesh. Now, a woman health worker is allegedly tortured, harassed and beaten black and blue by an Islamist Motin Hossain.
This incident of torture has been reported from Kadua village of Satbaria Union under Sujanagar Police Station of Pabna district. Tortured Hindu woman Chitra Rani Bhowmik is a govt employee and is the caretaker and provider of Kadua Community Healthcare Centre.
Lying in a hospital bed, Chitra Rani Bhowmik said, “I work as a Community Health and Care Provider in the centre. Very often a Muslim youth named Motin Hossain came and gives me a proposal of an illicit sexual relationship. I opposed it several times. But, he didn’t listen. Recently, he threatened me. So, in fear, I gave him some money. But, he is insisting to give more money or make an illicit sexual relationship with him.”
On the 30th of July, Motin Hossain reached the Community Health centre and severely beat Chitra Rani Bhowmik. Hearing her screams, locals rushed to save her. Meanwhile, Islamist Motin fled. Later, she was taken to a local hospital and has been undergoing treatment there.
Also, she filed a complaint at Sujanagar Police Station. Based on the complaint, the Police started a case against the accused Motin Hossain and started a manhunt to nab Morin. Till now, he has been absconding.
From the Hospital bed, she requested Prime Minister Seikh to take strong legal action against the Islamist Motin Hossain.
