DHAKA, BANGLADESH, February 9, 2014 (First Post): A Bangladeshi court today ordered the government to pay US$60,000 as compensation to Hindu families who were attacked for an alleged blasphemous post on a popular social networking site.

Unidentified persons vandalized 29 homes, 10 shops and seven temples at Bonogram Bazar in Pabna district in November last year following allegations that a boy from the Hindu minority made a blasphemous post about the Prophet Mohammed on a Facebook page, said Deputy Attorney General Biswajit Roy.

The government was asked by a High Court bench of Justices Quazi Reza-Ul Hoque and A. B. M. Altaf Hossain to pay the compensation within three weeks. The bench further directed police to arrest those responsible for the attacks.
