Tabled 21 December 2017
2017-19 Session
That this House is deeply concerned that despite the best efforts of the Bangladesh Government, minorities continue to face systemic harassment and threats to their well-being, livelihood and property and are denied freedom of religious worship in Bangladesh; notes that the experience of previous elections shows that there were attempts to use the threat of physical violence to manipulate minority votes; and calls on the Government and political parties in Bangladesh to ensure that the unacceptable targeting of minorities for political gain does not recur.
