Leaders of religious welfare trusts of the Hindu, Buddhist and Christian communities on Monday strongly condemned and protested against Priya Saha's false complaints to
US President Donald Trump about disappearance of minorities and demanded her trial.
"Priya Saha's complaints about disappearance of 37 million members of Hindu, Buddhist and Christian communities are false, fabricated and purposeful," Hindu Religious Welfare Trust Vice-Chairman Subrata Paul told a press conference.
The religious welfare trusts of the three communities jointly arranged the press conference at Jatiya Press Club.
The leaders of the religious platforms also termed Priya Saha's statement as false and purposeful and fully fabricated.
They also urged the government to investigate whether her comments were persuaded by any group or individual.
While meeting US President Donald Trump at White House on Thursday, Priya Saha, one of the organising secretaries of Bangladesh Hindu-Buddha-Christian Oikya Parishad, said 37 million followers of Hindu, Buddhism and Christianity disappeared from Bangladesh.
At the event the representatives of the three religious platforms have condemned Priya Saha's statement to US President Donald Trump on the torture of religious minority communities in Bangladesh.
"Seeking justice from a foreign country over a domestic issue is also unacceptable," they said.
During the meeting with the US president, Priya also told that her land had been grabbed by Muslim fundamentalists and sought his help so that Hindu, Buddhist and Christian people could live in Bangladesh.
