Staff Reporter :
Leaders of the three organisations of Hindu, Bouddha and Christian communities have condemned and also rejected Priya Saha's statement on oppression of minorities in Bangladesh, terming it "false and purposeful"
Her statement is unreal and made-up, said the leaders of Hindu Religious Welfare Trust, Buddhist Religious Welfare Trust and Christian Religious Welfare Trust at a press conference at the Jatiya Press Club in the city on Monday.
Mentionable that while meeting with US President Donald Trump at White House on Thursday, Priya Saha, one of the organising secretaries of Bangladesh Hindu-Bouddha-Christian Oikya Parishad, said, 37 million followers of Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity disappeared from Bangladesh.  "Seeking justice from a foreign country over a domestic issue is also unacceptable," the leaders of the three organizations said.
During the meeting with the US president, Priya also told that her land had been grabbed by Muslim fundamentalists and sought his help so that Hindu, Buddhist and Christian people could live in Bangladesh.
