On Wednesday Mr Momen said allegations of repression of minorities in his countries were "untrue", while speaking to reporters in Dhaka.
He stated "Whoever gave them the information, it is not correct. Many important decisions of our country are taken by persons belonging to different religions... we never judge anybody by their religion,"
He also praised India for being a "historically tolerant country" but he warned the government that the legacy of secularism could be "weakened" and could affect India-Bangladesh ties.

He stated "India is historically a tolerant country which believes in secularism (but) their position will be weakened if they deviate... so, naturally our people expect India won't do anything that could create anxiety among them,"

On this MEA Raveesh Kumar said "There seems to be some confusion. We've explained that religious persecution are not happening under present govt.Migrants who have sought refuge in India from Bangladesh have faced persecution & abuse on religious grounds"
He further said "Our relationship is strong. As leaders of both the countries have said, "this is the golden age of our relations."
