- Advertisment -

Celebrations of the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence and diplomatic relations with India in the present Indian premier Narendra Modi, were marred by protests against his visit to Bangladesh, leading to the death of at least 10 people on Friday and Saturday, Bangladeshi newspaper New Age reported.

According to the newspaper five more people were killed in Chattogram and Brahmanbaria on Saturday.

The visit of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi sparked protests, mainly by Islamist and leftist parties and organisations that denounced Modi’s role in the Gujarat genocide in 2002 and for the continued oppression on the minorities in his country as well as aggression towards Bangladesh, the New Age report read.

Border Guard Bangladesh personnel have been deployed in various places, social media platform Facebook has, reportedly, been blocked in Bangladesh on Friday evening.

Amnesty International in a statement on Friday stated that Bangladesh’s authorities must respect the right to freedom of assembly and protect peaceful protestors after the police opened fire on protestors at a rally in Chattogram.
