How can Bangladesh protect its Hindu community? | The Stream

Bangladesh is on edge following one of the worst spates of anti-Hindu violence in its history. Activists continue to demonstrate in the streets to demand justice, after at least six people were killed and hundreds injured in mob violence around the country. The trouble began with inflammatory social media posts that showed a copy of the Quran being desecrated at a Hindu temple.

Muslims protested against the apparent disrespect of their holy book, and since then, hundreds of Hindu-owned homes and shops have been set on fire and several religious sites vandalised. Police have arrested scores of people as the government.
