Govt. will soon distribute funds to help rebuild damaged temples and Hindu businesses

The government will provide Tk. 44.75 lakh to the Hindu community to help rebuild the temples, puja mandaps and shops which were damaged in attacks during last year’s Durga Puja festival in Noakhali, Cumilla and Cox’s Bazar districts, an official said on Thursday.

“We are going to hand over cheques of Tk 44.75 lakh soon among 31 temples and business houses of the Hindu community from the Prime Minister’s Relief and Welfare Fund at the directives of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,” PMO Secretary Md Tofazzel Hossain Miah said.

In a separate press release signed by PM’s Assistant Press Secretary M Ashraf Siddique Bitu, also said that the Religious Affairs Ministry is also providing similar kind of assistances to the damaged temples and business houses.
