A mob of 200 people has allegedly attacked an ISKCON temple in Bangladesh's Noakhali on Friday, 15 October.

Reporting the incident on Twitter, ISKCON temple also urged the Bangladesh government to immediately take action in this regard.

"ISKCON temple & devotees were violently attacked today by a mob in Noakhali, Bangladesh. Temple suffered significant damage & the condition of a devotee remains critical. We call on the Govt of Bangladesh to ensure the safety of all Hindus & bring the perpetrators to justice," the temple said in a tweet.
