Preo Bala Biswas alias Priya Saha told the US president that 37 million Hindu, Buddhist and Christian people have disappeared from Bangladesh. She was attending a programme at the White House on Thursday.
Bangladesh is a beacon of religious freedom and communal harmony, where people of all faiths have been living in peace for ages. Meanwhile, a vested quarter like Priya Saha is trying to tarnish the image of Bangladesh.
Priya Saha is the daughter of Nagandra Nath Biswas. Age 54. She is the resident of Dhammondi in the capital.
She is also the editor and publisher of monthly published newspaper Dalit Kanto. She got declaration for the publication on June 12 in 2019.
Priya Bala Biswas married Molay Shah the Deputy Director of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). After her marriage Preo Bala Biswas became Priya Shah.
Priya Shah and Molay Shah have two daughters who are studying in the USA. Source of their daughters' study expenses is also unknown.
Priya Saha is known to have been officially invited to several state
programmes of the ruling Awami League in the last 10 years.
An official of the US embassy in Dhaka however does not know how Priya was selected to meet the US president as a religious persecution survivor.
Priya is one of the eight organising secretaries of Bangladesh Hindu-Bouddha-Christian Oikya Parishad.
She is also the executive director of Self-Help Association for Rural People through Education and Entrepreneurship, or SHAREE.
Priya told the US President that her land had been grabbed by Muslim fundamentalists and sought his help so that Hindu, Buddhist and Christian people could live in Bangladesh.
Hindu Buddhist Christian Oikya Parishad officials told the Daily Observer, "Her house was not torched. Rather the house that was burnt belonged to her brother, a retired government official." "We protested against that incident but it was not related to any communal issue," a Parishad official said.
Bangladesh Embassy at Washington DC should ask the White House how Priya was selected to meet the US President as a religious persecution survivor without notice.
