India supports Bangladesh’s action against militants
India supports Bangladesh Government’s actions against the militancy to curb the recent incidents of secret killings.
Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday said Bangladesh government is sparing no effort to stop the attacks though she termed the incidents of secret killings unfortunate.
Sushma came with her observation while she was addressing a press conference in New Delhi.
Praising Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Indian minister said she has taken “strong steps” against militancy and terrorism.
Bangladesh government is sparing no effort to stop the attacks, Sushma Swaraj said the media.
Sheikh Hasina has taken strong steps and Islamic leaders have condemned the killings. It shows the mentality of the country’s people, she added.
She was asked about a series of killings by militants of secular bloggers, foreigners and attacks on minorities inside Bangladesh.
This was the first time India has gone on record commenting on Hasina government’s anti-militancy campaign which has faced criticism from some quarters.
India has already taken up with Hasina government the threat letter received by the Ramakrishna Mission in Dhaka and asked Bangladesh authorities to enhance security in the Mission premises in Gopibagh.
