India demands ‘swift actions’ over crimes against minorities in Bangladesh

India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has asked for “swift action” against the perpetrators of the crimes against minorities in Bangladesh.
She made the demand in a meeting with her Bangladesh counterpart Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali on Wednesday.

Ali assured Swaraj that Bangladesh was “conscious of the importance of checking the activities of radical forces in the country”, according to a statement released by India’s external affairs ministry.

He also expressed the commitment of his government “to safeguarding Bangladesh's secular, progressive and liberal character”.

A head priest of a Hindu temple was killed last month and another was injured while trying to save him in an attack that terror outfit Islamic State (IS) reportedly claimed credit for.

Police have rejected the claim and arrested several people.

Ali is in New Delhi to join the first edition of the ‘Raisina Dialogue’ organised by the Ministry of External Affairs and the Observer Research Foundation.

The Raisina Dialogue is India’s flagship conference engaging with geo-politics and geo-economics designed to explore the prospects and opportunities for Asian integration as well as Asia’s integration with the larger world.

In the bilateral meeting, the two ministers reviewed progress on cooperation initiatives since Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Dhaka trip in June 2015.

They will meet again this year in Dhaka in a Joint Consultative Commission.
