We are shocked, dismayed and appalled by the ongoing destruction of cultural heritage of Mahasthan area, Bangladesh, the attack on Bangladesh-France Joint Excavation site, the security guards and the abuse of grass root level archaeologists. The repeated violation of Bangladesh High Court's ruling regarding the protection of the cultural heritage of this site made us seriously concerned. We are enraged by the complete failure of the concerned bodies and authorities in ensuring safeguarding of this site with huge archaeological potential. The series of events pertaining to the destruction, attack and humiliation of the cultural heritage and people fighting for the protection of the site must be taken into serious account.......................................
