Intelligence and law enforcement agencies have identified most of the offenders in Cumilla temple incident. Besides, steps have already been taken against those who are involved in creating violence in some places of the country.

The government has the video footages of those who staged the procession in Cumilla and it will reveal footages of the incident before the countrymen which party they support, which ideology they believe in.

People irrespective of caste, creed and religion here celebrate all festivals together. And we believe religion is for individuals and festival is for all and we enjoy every festival together in our country. However, the latest attempt was made to disrupt law and order and we think that it is an attempt to destroy the communal harmony. Therefore, the criminals must be hunted down to hand out appropriate punishments to them to stop the recurrence of such communal acts as early as possible.

The government will also have to definitely trace those who are instigating culprits to carry out such incidents and take necessary action against them, no matter what religion they belong to.

It has been noticed that when the law enforcement agencies are doing in every possible way to maintain law and order, peace and stability, under the cover of political parties the some vested elements continued to provoke communal activities across the country, including in Cumilla. We believe those who cannot earn the confidence and trust of the people and have no politics of ideology only they can commit such incidents. 

We think an organised evil force comprising several vested quarters and extreme communal groups incited by the anti-liberation forces and killers of theFather of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and their patrons had an evil political aim in giving communal provocations across the country. And they wanted to create a chaotic situation in the country by destroying communal harmony. 

Therefore, as the politics of conspiracy is still going on in Bangladesh, we all should also remain alert as there will be tougher challenges in the days to come. Besides, we think as the educational institutions, including universities are reopening gradually the conspirators are also taking preparations to create unrest in the country centering the universities with a target to oust the government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

We witnessed acts of sabotage and anarchy in the name of movement in the past and they (conspirators) are taking preparations to create instability in the country.

 Therefore, people imbued with the spirit of Liberation War will have to be united further against conspirators who are out to destroy the spirit by carrying out communal incidents.  Also, those who are involved in creating panic and anarchy should be dealt with an iron hand.
