Gopalganj’s Ramshil village is now a refuge camp

Report from Ajkerkagoj, Oct 11, 2001: The Hindu populated village of Ramshil under Kutalipara upazilla of Gopalganj has become the refugee camp overnight. Post Election violence in three districts of Bangladesh has displaced more than 15 thousand minority families who have taken refugee in the various schools, colleges and open fields of Ramshil union. Ajkerkagaj reporter also stated that villagers of Ramshil union have taken the initiative to feed those displaced thousands with whatever little they have. The Ramshil is now a refugee camp. According to the eyewitness reports the torture, oppression, looting, gang raping and atrocities can even vanquished the barbarism of 1971.

The unaided and defamed thousands of these minorities are from Gournadi of Agailzara under Barishal, Mullahat of Bitalmari under Bagherhat and Najirpur of Firujpur. Among these districts the severely affected area is Barishal where numerous women were gang raped and repressed inhumanly. According to Chatra League Secretary Rasel and Bipul, BNP and Jamat allies went on barbaric rampage in Chandshi, Bahadurpur, Barthi, Pingolkati, Ashukati, Agailzara and numerous other places to minorities for their support for Awami league. The barbaric laughter of the miscreants will subjugate any other barbaric incidents in the world. They gang raped women publicly, removed eyes of the victims, slaughter any one in their way and as eyewitness says, “you name any sorts of barbaric misdeeds those Islamic fundamentalists have committed it all”. The barbaric raping of two teens from Dhanduba under Gournadi upazila by the aforementioned miscreants will shame the entire world and challenge the very existence of civilization. They have even poisoned the ponds so that minority cannot even drink waters. Most of the displaced minorities are preparing to leave Bangladesh. The villagers of Ramshil are afraid that the Islamic fundamentalist may attack their village too. Already one attack was prevented somehow.

The same barbaric rampages are reported from Rajshahi, Chapainababganj, Pabna, Atgoria, Kashinathpur and other Northern districts of Bangladesh. Hindu minorities from Dinajpur, Takurgawn, Gopalpur, Tarash Sirajganj, Ullapara, Gaibanda and Shahajadpur are already leaving the country. The indigenous people alongwith other minorities are also the victims of the same barbaric rampage. There is no police action is yet taken. Most of the victims stated that no police activity has seen anywhere, its like country without a government.

Subjugated and defamed Hindu minorities of seven districts are leaving the Country: Mayhem in Bangladesh
