On Friday morning, the caretaker and officials of the Kali temple in Dautiya village noticed that the idol had been broken into pieces, news portal bdnews24.com quoted temple committee president Sukumar Kunda as saying.
This incident happened a day after Dussehera and the 9-day long Durga Puja celebrations in Bangladesh.
It should be noted that this is not the first act of vandalism at the temple. On March 17 this year, the ISKCON Radhakanta Jeev Temple in Dhaka was vandalized and the idols taken away. Ilkivallan was also said to have beaten several loyalists as well.
ISKCON Temple Public Relations Officer Amani Krishna Das said, “More than 200 terrorists led by Haji Shafiullah attacked and looted the ISKCON Radhakanta Temple located at 222, Lal Mohan Saha Street Wari.”
“The miscreants tried to breach the security wall of the temple,” an ISKON official said.
ISKON officials said that on October 16, 2021, a temple in the city of Noakhali, Bangladesh was vandalized and a worshiper was killed by a mob.
