GUWAHATI: Reacting to the recent attacks on Hindu minorities in Bangladesh, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa on Friday said that there should be no counter reaction of the attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh and that law and order should be maintained.
"We have alerted all our deputy commissioner and SP to take extra vigil in the backdrop of what has happened in Bangladesh", said the CM while addressing media in Guwahati.
Adequate steps have been taken, he added.
"Whatever is being said... should get widespread publicity so that any counter sentiment erupted in this country can be pulled down", said Sarma further.
Refusing to comment on religious attacks in other states within India, the Chief Minister further said; "I will not comment on any other state, I am happy that no such thing has happened in Assam and I have alerted the district administrations to take extra care. "
He hoped that the Minsitry of external affairs will do their work in this regard.
"The bottom line is that whatever may have happened in Bangladesh, we must ensure that there is no attack on religious minority or vice versa", added Sarma.
The atrocities inflicted on Hindus in Bangladesh has led to widespread outrage in India. The counter attacks have been reported in the state of Tripura where Hindus have been attacking Mulsims and damaging mosques.
Reacting to such incidents, TIPRA Chief Pradyot Manikya made some strong remarks while urging people to maintain communal harmony in the state.
In a live video, the Royal scion said, “It is not our culture in Tripura to fight among ourselves being Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists etc”, he said.
Warning the people who are responsible for the violence, Pradyot Manikya said, “Those who want to damage our culture, I am warning all of them that if you try to break us in the name of religion then you will find me at the field to fight with you”.
He further added urging everyone to maintain peace and harmony.
