The Hindus in East Pakistan which has now become Bangladesh are facing religious persecution from the hands of Both State and central govt of Bangladesh, goons of political parties like Awami League, BNP, and Islamic Jihadist outfit like Jamat e Islami, Arkan Rohingya solidarity Organisation, Bangladesh Khalifat Majlis, etc who constantly target the Hindu religious minority, the atrocities committed on Bangladeshi Hindus are so brutal and gruesome that even soulless person would think of 100 times before massacring anyone with such a severe magnitude. Hindus in Bangladesh face day to day torture with fear of life and their daughter trembles their heart every moment only because they are Hindu, the temples of Hindus are vandalized, Idols are broken, Hindus shops are looted, their localities are plundered by Jihadi mobsters with local authorities taking a scant notice of complaints of Hindus against the Violence committed on them on the religious line. After the formation of Pakistan, the Hindus in Bangladesh dropped sharply from 31% to 22% in 1951 and it kept on continuously falling from 22% to 18% in 1961 and now it has decreased to 10.7% of the total Bangladeshi Population in 2011, the accounts which are given below are taken from the recently published report of Bangladeshi Govt on conditions of Hindu Minority on Bangladeshi, the report is flooded with the rape Incidents of Hindu girls in Bangladesh but sadly both the international media and local media overlooked the report due to some constraints such as anxious of being called as Islamophobic, Communal, etc, therefore we felt necessary to Highlight the incidents happened against Hindu women so that we can tell to the world how Hindus are reduced to the state of Dhimmis in Bangladesh.
