Priya Saha, widely criticised for her recent controversial remarks to US President Donald Trump seeking help to save minority people of Bangladesh, is unlikely to come back home very soon.

She took the decision thinking over security concern in Bangladesh though government ensured her to provide all kinds of support if necessary, sources said.

A source close to her in New York said that though the Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen announced to provide protection to her as the government is obliged to do so, Priya is doubtful. So she will seek religious asylum to USA government, the source added.

After identifying herself as a Bangladeshi national, Saha was seen urging Trump to help the religious minorities living in Bangladesh. She claimed that 37 million people of minority groups have “disappeared” from Bangladesh.

The government condemned those claims and said those are baseless.

The Hindu Buddhist Christian Unity Council, in which Priya Saha was an organising secretary, expelled her for breach of organisational discipline.
