Bengali settlers burn down a Buddhist temple in Manikchari

On 10 March 2020, a group of Muslim settlers burnt down a Buddhist temple at Aungya Para of Tintahari union in Manikchari, Khagrachari district.

It is alleged that though there are army and BGB camps near to the Buddhist temple, but they played passive role while Muslim settlers were setting fire to the temple.

Properties of the temple worth some thousands of Taka were damaged in this arson attack and two monks of this temple were injured.

Muslim settlers had been trying to occupy land of the temple for long time. Prior to the incident, they quarrelled with the chief monk of the temple several times and threatened the monk to leave the temple soon.
