Karunyasagar Dasa, President, ISKCON Mangaluru, said, “We are deeply saddened by the unprovoked attacks on the ISKCON devotees, Hindus, and other minorities in Bangladesh. Several people including Prantha Chandra Das and Jatan Chandra Saha of ISKCON in Noakhali have been killed in the attacks. The attacks on Hindus and other minorities have been going on for decades.”

To condemn the incident, ISKCON has organized Global Kirtan Protest which is a worldwide peaceful demonstration of pain and grief of the global Hindu community, which stands in solidarity with the Hindus of Bangladesh. It is not against any religious community or the state of Bangladesh,” he added.
