A human chain and rally, organized by the Natore District Association of the United States, served as a protest against an attack on Bangladeshi taxi driver, Asad Uz Zaman Ripon. The rally was held in June in the Sterling Banglabazar area of the Bronx. Participants urged government officials to take strict action to stop terrorist activities, including racist attacks.

On the night of May 23, Asad Uz Zaman Ripon, joint general secretary of the Natore District Association and a Bangladeshi taxi driver, was ambushed by attackers in the Bronx.

At the rally, Ripon offered an account of the brutal attack. Other speakers called for a fair trial for the attack and expressed concern that people in the Bronx community were being subjected to various forms of violence.
