The recent attack on Hindus in Bangladesh in more than 22 districts has resulted in many criticisms. The radical Islamists caused despair and terror among devotees by forcibly entering places of worship during the sacred Durga Puja and jubilantly vandalizing and breaking icons of deities and destroying shrines. Reportedly, a dozen Hindus were slaughtered, and thousands were injured.
