Members of the Muslim majority in Bangladesh have destroyed temples and homes belonging to the Buddhist minority, so far none have been killed.
Buddhists are the minority in Bangladesh, and in the southeast section of the country, in the area known as Cox's Bazar, hundreds of Muslims went on a rampage burning Buddhist temples.
Four temples were burned, along with fifteen homes belonging to Buddhist families.
The violence was again sparked by outrage over a perceived insult to Islam. It was reported at NBC, and the Christian Science Monitor that a young Buddhist boy was supposed to have posted a photograph on Facebook. Muslim villagers, after the unconfirmed posting of the photograph, marched to a Buddhist village and desecrated the four temples, and burned fifteen homes.
Reported at the Monitor, the boy stated the picture of a burnt copy of the quran was tagged on his Facebook profile in error.
The attack on the temples was deemed to be a "premeditated and deliberate attempt" to disrupt harmony. as quoted from Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir.
Additional security forces were sent to the region and district police superintendent, Salim Mohammad Jahangir is quoted as saying: "We brought the situation under control before dawn and imposed restrictions on public gatherings,"
This incident follows the larger uproar over the recent film trailer incident, which was erroneously posited as the cause of the murder of a US Ambassador to Libya and three other individuals in Benghazi, Libya earlier this month.
The temples will reportedly be rebuilt by the government stated Alamgir, also, the council leader of the area, Sohel Sarwar Kajal, stated: "We are doing everything possible to quell tension and restore peace between the communities."
