  • Bangladesh Home Minister Mr Asaduzzaman Khan meeting the Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi in New Delhi

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi highly acclaimed his counterpart Sheikh Hasina’s “zero tolerance” policy against any sorts of terrorism and religious extremism and called Bangladesh a role model for religious harmony as home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal called on him in New Delhi in August. “The experts should visit Bangladesh to witness the religious harmony under which Bangladeshi people are living together with peace,” a Bangladesh high commission statement in August quoted Mr Modi as saying during the call on. It said he simultaneously appreciated Bangladesh’s policy of not allowing use of its territory by extremists and insurgents for perpetrating violence in other countries including India.

According to the statement the Rohingya issue also featured Mr Kamal’s meeting with the Indian premier when Modi said India had already raised the issue with the Myanmar authority as New Delhi thought the crisis must be solved. He assured the Bangladesh minister to discuss the matter again with Myanmar to ensure smooth and peaceful repatriation of the Rohingyas.
