Temple attacked, idols destroyed in B'desh

DHAKA(Bangladesh): Miscreants in Bangladesh's Narayanganj district vandalised an ancient Hindu temple, with assailants destroying six idols, a top official said today.

A gang of 30-35 men attacked the Sonargaon temple and broke six idols, said Md Yunus Ali, the local police chief.

He said the incident took place while the devotees were holding a religious function at the Sree Sree Rakshakali Temple at Ashrafdi village.

The miscreants vandalized the temple and four houses, injuring at least five people, in Narayanganj's Sonargaon subdivision yesterday, the private bdnews24 news agency said.

A case is underway, the police official was quoted as saying in the report. The Sonargaon police chief said religious programme began on February 2.

The gang attacked the temple following an altercation between a devotee and three youths of the village.

Very sad , I can understand the pain in demolition of religious structure.
These things should come to end. I wish this to be the last incident of such type.
