Minority groups in Bangladesh, especially Hindus, have become easy targets for anti-vote activists following the country's tense 10 national parliamentary elections. Homes and other properties have been attacked, torched or vandalized, and many have been forced to live under open sky in the meantime.

Human rights groups and Hindu leaders in Bangladesh today demanded more security for religious minorities amid reports that members of the community were attacked in several parts of the country during elections.

Activists of main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its key-ally fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami attacked Hindu households in western Jessore and northwestern Dinajpur, local media reports said. The Daily Star and several other newspapers said the activists vandalised 130 Hindu houses and torched another 10 in Malopara village as they went to cast votes defying the opposition call for the boycott.

Jamaat-e-islami and BNP whose leaders were convicted of war crimes in 1971? I'm not surprised. I am a Bengali Muslim and I am ashamed of how some of my countrymen (especially islamic extremists) have began to deprive the rights of these people.

Yes, they may follow a different religion, have different creeds and have a different lifestyle to maybe the majority of people in BD, but no, they are no less than Bengalis and even more importantly, they are no less than humans, so why should we take away their right to vote? Or kill them? Or vandalise their property?

Please do not blame the country or the majority of it's people as in general it is quite a nice place, given that it's run by the correct government. I only wish that one day it IS run by the correct government and we can have peace between the majority and the minority...
