Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Monday said that Priya Saha will be interrogated over her the allegations to US President Donald Trump of minority repression in Bangladesh after she returns home. 

Quader, also the general secretary of ruling Awami League, said this in response to a question of journalists at the secretariat in Dhaka amid widespread discussion of Priya Saha's allegations in Washington. 

"We are investigating whether anyone else is behind Priya Saha’s false statements," he said. 

Priya Saha participated in the Second Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom held at the US Department of State in Washington, DC on July 16-18. Delegates from 106 countries, including about 40 Foreign Ministers, attended the meeting at the invitation of Mike Pompeo, the US Secretary of State.

Priya Saha, one of the organizing secretaries of Bangladesh Hindu Buddhist Christian Unity Council, was seen telling US President Donald Trump, among other things, that 37 million Hindu, Buddhist and Christian people have been disappeared from Bangladesh.

She also told Trump that her land has been grabbed by Muslim fundamentalists and sought his help so that Hindu, Buddhist and Christian people can live in Bangladesh.
