Priya Saha’s allegation totally fabricated, says DMP chief
The complaint made by Priya Saha to US President Donald Trump on persecution of minorities in Bangladesh as ‘totally fabricated, baseless and unrealistic,’ said Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Md Asaduzzaman Mia on Saturday.
“The minority people are in a safe state in the country. She has done this (lodging complaints to the US president Trump) intentionally to endanger the country’s sovereignty,” said the DMP chief.
He said this while addressing a debate competition against violent extremism as the chief guest at Bangladesh Film Development Corporation in Dhaka.
In association with Manusher Jonno Foundation (MJF), Debate for Democracy organized the debate competition with its Chairman Hasan Ahmed Chowdhury Kiron in the chair.
BSS adds: Informing that the concerned ministry has taken steps to bring Priya Saha under the legal procedure, the DMP commissioner said, “There is no instance of grabbing one decimal land of the Hindu community, persecution on them and barring them from performing religious activities”.
Bangladesh’s communal harmony has set a unique example in the world, he added.
Along with political willingness, he underscored on creating public awareness to stamp out militancy from the country.
