India to speak to Bangladesh over temple demolitions: BJP

New Delhi, Nov 1 (IANS) Bharatiya Janata Party’s National Secretary Shrikant Sharma on Tuesday said that the government will speak to the Bangladesh government over reports of vadalisation of Hindu temples there.

“It is unfortunate. Hindus should not be targeted. Our government will speak to Bangladesh government,” Sharma said.

At least 15 temples along with hundreds of Hindu community houses were vandalised and looted by an unruly mob in Bangladesh’s Brahmanbaria district on Sunday, in the aftermath of a social media post allegedly showing disrespect towards Islam.
