Bangladesh urged not to 'reform' Hindu laws

Dhaka: Opposing any reform of the Hindu laws, a group of minority leaders has urged the Sheikh Hasina-led Bangladesh government to assure not to reform the laws.

They also demanded legal action against Mahfuz Anam, Editor of The Daily Star, and his wife Shaheen Anam, executive director of Manusher Jonnye Foundation, blaming them of hurting 'religious sentiments' of the Hindu community and creating chaos in their families.

Anam has submitted a proposal to the Law Commission for the reform of a Hindu law.

Shaheen Anam and Mahfuz Anam have been accused of 'conspiring to change' Hindu family scriptural rules by dividing Hindu family property into individual-centric property distribution, divorce, compulsory and punitive Hindu marriage registration, adoption, maintenance, and so on.

The leaders of the organisation named 'Bangladesh National Hindu Grand Alliance' and some other organisations of Hindu community made the call on Sunday during a press conference.

Gobinda Chandra Pramanik, an advocate, and Secretary-General, Bangladesh National Hindu Grand Alliance announced the four demands placed before the government.

They urged the government to make an announcement by August 30, assuring 'no reform and change' in Hindu law. They said legal action must be taken against Shaheen Anam and some NGOs that are 'creating chaos' in the Hindu society and families by conducting anti-social and anti-religious activities.
