Dhaka : Protests are taking place in different parts of the country during Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Bangladesh.
According to foreign media reports, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a visit to Bangladesh to attend the 50th Independence Day celebrations of Bangladesh and the 100th anniversary celebrations of its founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
The Indian prime minister’s visit to Bangladesh began on Friday for a two-day visit, while leaders from Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives also attended the 10-day event in Dhaka.
Protests have been going on in various parts of the country since last week on the occasion of the Indian Prime Minister’s visit to Bangladesh and Modi’s visit has been strongly opposed.
Protesters against Modi’s visit say the Indian prime minister has sparked religious tensions and atrocities against Indian Muslims.
In another protest in Dhaka, protesters said that more than a thousand Muslims were killed in Gujarat in 2002 when Modi was the Chief Minister.
The student leader, who led the student protest, said 2,000 students took part in the protest, with police beating and injuring 40 students, 18 of whom were hospitalized.
