Dhaka attack: CPM concerned over rise in fundamentalist activity in Bangladesh

New Delhi: In the wake of spate of violence engulfing Bangladesh, including the Dhaka terror attack, CPM expressed concern over the rise of fundamentalist activity in the neighbouring country on Sunday.

The recent spate of attacks against "secular rationalists, minorities and foreigners clearly shows that the activities of the fundamentalists are on the rise", a statement by the party Polit Bureau said.

It hoped that the Government of Bangladesh will bring the perpetrators to book and restore normalcy at the earliest.

"The people of Bangladesh have a heroic legacy of struggling unitedly for the liberation of the country cutting across all barriers of religion. The Polit Bureau of the CPM hopes that the people of Bangladesh will continue to uphold this legacy and thwart all efforts to spread violence and anarchy in the country," the statement added.

ISIS terrorists brutally murdered 20 foreigners, including an Indian student, inside a cafe popular with expatriates in Dhaka's diplomatic zone in the worst terror attack in Bangladesh before commandos yesterday launched an assault and killed six attackers while capturing one alive.
