President Ram Nath Kovind to visit Ramna Kali Temple, destroyed by Pakistan Army in 1971, in Dhaka

New Delhi: Honorable President Ram Nath Kovind will visit the most historic temple of Dhaka during his tour to Bangladesh on 50th Victory Day Celebrations. The historic temple, Ramna Kali dates back to the time of the Mughals. It was destroyed in March 1971 by the Pakistani Army to have control over Bangladesh.

The temple was destroyed under the ‘Operation Searchlight’ which killed lakhs of locals, out of which many were Hindus.

In 2017, the decision to reconstruct the temple was taken by then external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj during her visit to Bangladesh.  Since the temple is Dhaka’s cultural heritage, President Kovind will visit it from December 15 to 17 as the chief guest at Victory Day Celebration. The parade will include 122 members from the Indian armed forces.
