The academics viewed that Bangladesh is a home of communal harmony but an
opportunists circle has been hatching a deep-rooted conspiracy to destabilize
the peaceful atmosphere at present.
They demanded exemplary punishment to those who will be found guilty so
that no more can dare to commit such types of crimes.

harmony and religious tolerance everywhere in the society.

against them through proper identification as soon as possible.
