By Express News Service 

The minority Hindus in Bangladesh are facing the threat of ethnic cleansing, US rights activist Richard L Benkin has said.  Benkin said he is carrying out an indepth research on the Hindu population’s dwindling numbers which now stand at a mere 7 per cent  as per the 2016 figures. Compared to this, the Hindus accounted for 35 per cent of the population in the then Eastern Pakistan in 1947 which slumped to 20 per cent following the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971.

Dr. Richard Benkin is an American Jewish human rights activist, co-founder of ‘Interfaith Strength‘, journalist, writer and lecturer. He’s also a member of Folks Magazine’s Editorial Board since August 2011.[1]
