Bangladesh's religious minorities fear discrimination in service

Religious minorities today expressed fears of discrimination in employment and alleged it surfaced after the debate over Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.

Bangladesh Hindu-Boudhha-Christian Oikya Parishad alleged that a vested quarter within the government is exploiting the religious identity of the chief justice and is pulling a divide against the religious minority.

Reading out a scripted statement, the forum’s General Secretary Rana Dasgupta said that the vested quarter is capitalising the issue of the chief justice to engage in “communal conspiracy”.

They alleged that meritorious, skilled and senior employees of the government service are being kept deprived and denied of promotions and better placement.

They also raised a finger on “a senior secretary of Prime Minister’s Office” for pulling the strings behind the scenes and hatching a plot for discriminating the religious minorities.

The forum requested the prime minister to launch an investigation based on their allegations.

Hindu-Boudhha-Christian Oikya Parishad organised the press conference at Dhaka Reporters’ Unity, presided over by their President Hubert Gomez.
