Just unfortunate

When affiliates of the ruling party, a supposedly "secularist" ruling political party at that, burn down a religious site (and a home besides) of minority religious community members. Perhaps one day, Bangladeshis will decide that Muslim, Hindu, Christian, or whatever people are Bangladeshis. And that the vested property law is utterly hateful and deplorable. More likely, vested property will go away when all of the religious and ethnic minorities have as well.

That this happened just kilometers away from the capital, in Manikganj, is just shameful and unfortunate.
