Hindu Samhati Holds Protest Rally in Sankrail and Submits Memorandum to BDO (w/pictures)

Hindus Rally in Sankrail; Appeal to Administration for Help in Persecution from Muslims and a Biased Police Force

In Howrah district's Sankrail block, the Hindus are facing constant torture and harassment. On the Muslim festival of Bakri-Id, a Hindu man named Bittu Pal was attacked with swords when he attempted to stop a cow being slaughtered (Cow slaughter has been declared illegal by the West Bengal High Court on this occasion) by Muslims. Bittu was severely injured and had to be hospitalized for seven days. This attack happened in front of the police, they refused to arrest anybody.

Then on 9th November 2010, a Muslim thief snatched away a necklace from a Hindu lady, the local citizens caught the miscreant and roughened him up. The police brought charges against fourteen Hindus. The police started conducting raids on Hindu households in Sankrail, many Hindus have gone into hiding in this locality.

Hindu women in the area are complaining of being verbally and physically assaulted from the local Tiger Club's Muslim members.

In protest of these regular communal occurrences, on November 23 2010, Hindu Samhati leaders along with five hundred local Hindus from the Sankrail area protested in front of the BDO (Block Development Office). Led by Samhati's president Tapan Kumar Ghosh, the massive rally started in Manikpur and ended at the BDO office located in Andul, Sankrail.

Following the speeches, a memorandum that had a detailed description of the persecution of Hindus in the block was submitted to the officer on behalf of Hindu Samhati. The other leaders of the organization present were Narendra Majhi, Sahadeb Thandar, Sikhen Chatterjee, Arup Ray,
Nilima Roy, and Shukla Pal.

Sainthia Businessmen Getting Vulnerable to Pressure Tactics in Muharram

Raise Violent Protests to Save Skin and Kith and Kin at This Time

Lastly, Sainthia, a prominent town and municipality in Suri Sadar subdivision (of Birbhum district in West Bengal, India), has got acquainted with the brunt of not conforming to the (Islamic tradition of) heinous pressure tactics played during Muharram (to raise subscriptions from Hindus). It is to be noted that Sainthia is famous for Nandikeshwari Temple, one of the Shakti Peethas in India.and has always been one of the prime targets of Islamic extremist groups, whose main intention is to uproot the potent Hindu community populating the town and also its confidence.

The events that played out before the administration on 17th December, 2010, Friday (Muharram Day) was enough to motivate the Hindu community living here to protest fiercely. The shop of a local Hindu businessman was ransacked completely for refusing to adhere to the rate of forced subscription imposed on him by the local organizers of Muharram (a Muslim festival). These events took place in front of the local police and the administration, while the later were found to perceive the entire development with rapt attention only. The persecuted Hindu businesspersons lodged a complaint against the culprits but none of them were arrested by the local police till late Friday evening.

It is worthwhile to mention that mounting rates of subscription (forced donation collection for Muharram) and changing approaches of collecting these funds have been making lives of businessmen in and around Sainthia difficult and unbearable. What is even more weird is and moreover apathetic stance of the local police has been adding salt to the gaping wound. You may be amazed to hear that the Muslim activists have been extracting money from local Hindu businessmen in broad daylight, but no measures have been adopted by the administration yet to call all these a halt.

According to local businessmen, while the aforesaid ransacking was in full swing during Friday afternoon (on Muharram day), in a shop of electrical goods in the corporation market, the police did simply nothing. It’s a ghastly reality even if there was a presence of no less than 7-8 police personnel during the incident.

As per the owner of the looted shop, a gang of Islamic activists imposed a forced subscription (donation demanded) of Rs. 200 on him owing to the Muharram, which was not possible for him to bear financially. When he refused to pay and was stern about it, he was ridiculed by the ruffians and the entire Islamic group left. But within a short period, 35-40 of the group returned, attacked the business property, and started plundering and looting the shop. The extent of damage was huge, amounting to lakhs of rupees (in the Indian context). But the police simply refused to interfere after repeated requests, and save the businessmen from persecution. All these above-mentioned incidents caused the businessmen to raise strong protests and block traffic before the Rabindra Bhavan in the neighborhood. It was indeed a very tough moment for the local Hindu people.

Quoting successful businessman Shibkumar Mitra, the 'rising indifference or impassivity (on the part) of local administration is encouraging the Islamic felons to go on with their illegitimate activities. Muslims have historically extracted funds from non-Muslims for their religious use, which is known as the 'Jijiya' tax.'

Well, the police has never been short of providing assurances. They have assured (at this time too) that appropriate measures would be adopted to bring the culprits to book. But if the communication between this correspondent and the hurt businessmen is to be believed, the reliance on police (among Hindus) is steadily on the wane.

Kali Temple Attacked in Rampurhat, Hindu Shops Vandalized, Hindu Women Molested

Rampurhat, Birbhum, West Bengal, India

Bagtui Paschimpara Muhharram Commitee organized a Muharram Tazia parade on Friday, December 17th 2010 evening. The parade was conducted without permit from the local police department. When the police learned about this illegitimate parade, instead of stopping it, they requested the organizers to follow certain routes so that local people do not face any hassle or delay in their daily commute. The Muslim organizers paid no attention to the police instructions and chose to march in routes they wanted. When SDPO intervened and tried to direct the marchers in routes the police approved, the mob turned violent and threatened to kill him. The police force retreated and continued to watch the marchers from a distance.

It was night when the Tazia procession reached the Kamarpatti More. The marchers started breaking all street lights causing panic among the locals. In the cover of darkness, the Muslim mob started vandalizing Hindu owned stops between Lotus Press Lane and Kamarpatti More. More than 25 shops were looted and several Hindu women molested. The Muslim marchers also destroyed couple of govt owned buses. The procession then advanced to Shangata More where the marchers attacked the Dakshina Kali Mandir.

Police witnessed the looting and mayhem from a distance. However, they took no action against the perpetrators. It should also be noted that Muslims destroyed the street lights before staring the anarchy - the darkness made it difficult for the police and local Hindus identify the criminals.

On December 18th 2010, local Hindus under the umbrella of Rampurhat Babosayi Samiti conducted a protest rally and blocked the state highway between Lotus Press Lane and Kamarpatti More from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Hindus demanded the culprits be apprehended and police prevent such incidents in future. They also brought up the fact that they have been attacked multiple times in recent past by Muslims from Bagtui village. In 2009, they attacked the Durga puja immersion procession near Mahajanpatti. There were also incidents of attack on Hindu girls and the Hindu population is living under constant fear.

As a result of continuing attacks and harassments, a large number of Hindu families have already left the area. The sharp drop in the number of Hindus is endangering the few remaining families.

As per 2001 census, the following were the population distribution among Hindus and Muslims in Rampurhat subdivision:

Rampurhat Block -1 (Muslims 29.03%, Hindus 70.97%)
Rampurhat Block - 2 (Muslims 47.04% Hindus 52.96%)
Nalhati Block - 1 (Muslims 46.69% Hindus 53.31%)
Nalhati Block - 2 (Muslims 68.03% Hindus 31.97%)
Murarai Block - 1 (Muslims 56.25 Hindus 43.75%)
Murarai Block - 2 (Muslims 73.62 Hindus 26.38%)

Overall demographic distribution in Birbhum district (Muslim 35.08% Hindus 64.49%)
Age group 0 - 6 years demographic distribution in Birbhum district (Muslim 41.15% Hindus 58.42%)

Violence Against Hindus Continues in Joynagar

Jangalia, a village with both Hindu and Muslim residents is situated in South 24 Pargana under Joynagar police station (West Bengal, India). The Hindu and Muslim locality is separated by a road. The auto-tacker hub by the road is near a old banayan tree which the Hindu residents worship. This year (2010), the rickshaw and van drivers decided to celebrate Vishwakarma puja under the tree. Muslim residents opposed the plan claiming the land belongs to them and they want to build a graveyard in the land. The claim by Muslims has no merit - the land belonged to a local Hindu family. Even today the intersection is called "Bipin Saha-r More" (Intersection of Bipin Saha). West Bengal government seized the land from the Sahas under land ceiling act. So, the private land belonging to Sahas became government land.

Not surprisingly, Muslims pretend all government land belongs to them and take every opportunity to grab any available land! They declared the vested land next to the Auto Stand to be their graveyard and build wall around it. This graveyard area had no Muslim burial in the past - which tells us the falsehood of their claim!

When the Muslims were preparing to build the wall, Hindu van and auto drivers contacted Hindu Samhati. Samhati contacted the police and Hindus could celebrate Vishwakarma puja at the site. Unfortunately, on the night of the puja, Muslims vandals desecrated the mandap (altar) and broke the muthy(deity) of Lord Vishwakarma. Hindus were forced to perform biswarjan with the broken murty.

Then came Durga puja. Hindus perform Durga puja with pomp and splendor every year. Hindu girls always perform puja under the banayan tree on the day of "Sasthi" during Durga puja. This year Muslims tried stopping them and police intervened. Undaunted by resistance from Muslims and police, Hindus performed puja by the tree. During the Durga puja, Muslims complained to the police about use of loud speaker. Interestingly, Muslims have been using loud speakers five times a day for daily azaan (Muslim call to prayer)! Hindu Samhati intervened again and Hindus could use loud speaker during the puja.

Just before Kali puja, Subrata Sarkar, (Block Development Officer, Joy Nagar - 1) invited Hindus and Muslims for a meeting on 30th October, 2010 regarding the disputed land. Since Hindu residents were busy with preparation for upcoming Kali puja, they submitted a written petition on October 28th, 2010 requesting postponement of the meeting by one day. Even though Subrata Sarkar accepted and agreed to postpone the meeting, on Oct 30th, he arrived at the disputed spot with local Muslims and police force. Muslims cut the branches of the Banayan tree and started building a concrete wall. Locals Hindus protested and demanded how come the BDO agreed to postpone the meeting but, came to help Muslims build the wall without contacting the Hindus. Subrata Sarkar mistreated the protesters which enraged Hindus and they prevented the Muslims to build the wall. Hindu women also protested. Police force and Muslims attacked the Hindus and severely beat them up. This resulted in all out confrontation from Hindus. Bombs and guns were used by both sides and OC Ram Kumar Mandal along with four police officers and eight Muslims were wounded and had to be hospitalized.

Police force then raided the Hindu locality and arrested eight Hindus included four women, one of whom was seven months pregnant. The arrested Hindus are:

Supriya Mandal (7 months pregnant)
Nayantara Mandal
Bishakha Mandal
Basanti Haldar
Sukumar Mandal
Gopal Haldar
Mahadev Mandal
Alok Mandal

The Hindu women were granted bail after 25 days in jail. The Hindu men are still languishing in jail more than one month now.

Hanuman Temple Destroyed in Howrah; Hindu Businesses Attacked

Islamists Destroy Hindu Temple With Bombs During Muharram Procession in Pachla, Howrah; Multiple Hindu Properties Attacked.

Police and RAF on Duty - Press and Photography Not Permitted on Spot -

17th December, 2010
Place: Biki Hakola Village, Police Station - Pachla, District – Howrah, in West Bengal, India.

The mob of the Muharram procession attacked a Hanuman temple located near Koley Para Primary School, 15 bombs were exploded on or near the HANUMAN temple by the fanatic Muslim attackers and as a result the temple was totally destroyed .

At least 10 HINDU shops were ransacked and looted, some of the shops are as follows:-

1) Gora Shau :- Sweet and Fried Food shop.

2) Kashi Pachal :- Vegetable Shop.

3) Nemai Nath :- Tea Stall.

4) Raghunath Karmakar :- Medicine Shop.

5) Rajkumar Polle :- Embroidery Raw Material Shop. The shutter of this shop was broken and the Muslims looted this shop which was consisting materials worth tens of thousands of rupees.

Apart from the above mentioned shops there were at least five more shops which were ransacked and looted.

The shops mentioned above have been bombed by the Muslims.

All of these incidents took place between 4:30 to 5:00 PM in front of the Police Force who were standing still and helpless and did not even dare to attempt to stop these Islamic activists.

Also, several Hindu homes were broken as well. It is alleged by local Hindus that Panchla police station 2nd officer, Najurul Islam, a Muslim was present at that time and the vandalism occurred with his covert sanction. Also, we received information that ex Congress MLA and TMC leader Sheikh Gulshan Malik was also involved in the planned attacks against the Hindus.

A communal incident started by the Muslims took place on 9th November 2010 for which 18 Hindu men of the area were falsely framed and fake cases were imposed upon these completely innocent Hindus. Following this incident, the local Hindu leaders belonging to various political parties advised the Hindus not to come out of their homes during the Muharram procession of the Muslims. Accordingly the Hindus stayed indoors today (Muharram day Dec 17, 2010) at the time of Muharram processions and the Muslims took complete advantage of the situation and carried on one sided atrocity on Hindus and Hindu properties.

The incident of 9th Nov 2010 is really brutal and the facts will be placed on this blog shortly.

The Hindus of the area are very perplexed and confused and don’t know what to do and at this stage there is no one in the locale to provide support and lead the Hindus.

Previously there had been many instances of Muslim atrocities in the Pachla area for example two years back : All the Hindu Shops (54 shops) of the Pachla Bajar were ransacked and looted and on all the occasion and the Police stood and watched like mere helpless spectators.

Basanti Bears Testimony to Hindu Persecution

What is the best way to steer clear of Islamic atrocities? This happens to be the main issue among the Hindu community in the Indian state of Bengal at the moment; a subject that is getting more raging with the passage of each day for obvious reasons. If the said concept has interested you a great deal, there is no need to go hither and thither. All you have to do is to focus on the inhuman tortures that took place on two Hindu families on December 3, 2010 at the village of Kumrokhali no. 7 of PS: Basanti in 24 Paraganas District (South) in West Bengal, India. The torturing proves yet again the insensate traits of Muslim marauders.

Two brothers called Kartik Pradhan and Bhombal Pradhan, have been residing in the village Kumrokhali no. 7 for years. And one of their Miuslim neighbors has been Safi Naiya, another resident in the village for years; the major perpetrator behind the sudden crisis. What did lead to the outburst then? The altercation did initiate with the edge of dwellings of both families and not a major problem initially. The two Hindu families had built a fence made of coral tree (standing alongside the fence) and it proved to be enough to energize the Muslims to create a new Pakistan in the neighborhood.

On 3d December, 2010 at 4.00 pm, the son of Safi Naiya, as part of a planned strategy, was perceived to make a move to take away the tree from the side of the fence. Ashok Pradhan, the eldest son of Kartik Pradhan, raised a protest perceiving the same act; the protest instigated Muslims to attack with both traditional and modern weapons. Witnessing such a deadly approach Hindus started to flee; sufficient to boost the morale of attackers to a large extent. Muslims entered Hindu households en masse and persecuted them crossing all limits. The cold-blooded beating was unbearable and Kartik Pradhan, Ashok Pradhan, Karna Pradhan along with a woman of the family were critically injured. Finding no other option, the other members of the family carried them away in an automobile to the doctor’s chamber in close proximity.

Little they could envisage the future or what remained ahead. A Muslim crook named Muzaffar Naiya along with his group of hoodlums was waiting for the automobile in the same avenue. It is to be noted that Muzaffar is a noted criminal in the pertinent region and a good number of cases against him are pending in the court of justice. But, thanks to the political support he enjoys, the local administration has not been able to get a hold of him. As soon as the automobile was detected, it was stopped and the wounded members of the Pradhan family were brought out and beaten mercilessly yet again. Well, a few Hindus did protest at this time but they were cautioned that they would also face the same fate.

The half-dead Hindus were admonished that they would be burnt with petrol if they dared to inform others of the same event. Karna Pradhan was slapped and also warned that none would be able to save them from the wrath of Muslims. Can’t this be considered as adding salt to the gaping wound?

What were the Hindus doing then? They were busy in saving themselves by remaining within own residences. What is most striking, in spite of rapid dissemination of the incident, none of the Hindus came forward to help or even protest. This is a reality even if more than 3 hours passed by that time.

The news came to the Hindu Samhati activists by the same night and it was around 10 pm when Pratap Chandra Dalui, one of the key HS activists, went to meet the victims. But even by that time there was no resistance from the Hindus. Were they all dead psychologically?

Dalui learnt from the severely wounded victims of Pradhan family that Sabdel Mollah, CPIM leader and elected chief of local village council, in spite of assuring, did not feel it necessary to make a visit to their residence. This is a cruel truth even if the Pradhan family was a member of CPIM for years. When Ms. Gita Mondal, member of the local district council, was informed of the same incident she said, “I do know everything. You all must go home at once”. The thwarted Hindus had no other way except to return home and put themselves in their own houses. In the midst of all these Muslims threatened to rout Hindus once again on the very next morning.

What did happen in the very next morning? There was a repetition of the same incident. Wounded members of the Pradhan family were brought out of their household and thumped mercilessly. Muslims in large numbers gathered to take pleasure in the incident. Sadly a few Hindus were also in the crowd.

Hearing the deplorable development Dalui contacted Goutam, an eminent activist and also the member of State Committee of Hindu Samhati, who advised him to accompany the family to the nearby police station. Even if the victims were counseled in the same manner, they were not in a position to trust in Dalui. They were simply panic-stricken and were unable to adopt any such measure.

Within the next few hours other workers of Hindu Samhati were informed of the same episode. Arun Mondal, activist of HS and the member of the village no.5 came forward to help the victims in every possible manner. With this end in view, an assortment of members of HS Youth Committee including Milan Ojha, Pabitra Biswas, Bakreshwar Mondal along with Arun Mondal became instrumental to bring the victims out of their houses and take them to the nearby police station. The approach was effective indeed as it was able to instill confidence within the injured party. However, when HS activists told them that an Attempt to Murder case would be lodged in the police station, the sufferers got frightened and refused to move to the police station outright.

Members of the Pradhan family told that they would go to the police station in the following morning; enough to annoy HS activists present there. Instead of going to the police station the injured party returned to their residence to settle the entire dispute peacefully. How can such a frame of mind be justified? Are you acquainted with all these? Is this to prove Hindus are peace-loving and want to live with others?

Are not these acts stimulating Muslim felons to a large extent? Without a shred of doubt, any such act has been able to transform the minuscule Muslims into real demons, if not more. The entire area of Basanti in conjunction with the aforementioned event is the best specimen of the same. It is good to be good but not at the cost of your own existence.

Can you show any Hindu God devoid of weapons? It is not possible on the whole. Whatever it is, the vigor along with the essential self-esteem among Hindus is on the wane.

The persecution on the Pradhan family has frightened a large number of Hindu families and the exodus, as a result, has started already. Don’t you find any similarity between this and the formation of Pakistan in ’47?

According to sources, the entire maltreatment of Hindus on December 3rd, 2010 at the village Kumrokhali no. 7 of PS: Basanti in 24 Paraganas District (South) in West Bengal was part of a plan neatly designed in a neighboring mosque. It was endorsed by a group of hardliner anti-Hindu Muslim felons including Md. Haji Mohruddin Naiya, Md. Haji Alauddin Naia, Muzaffar Naiya and Jasimuddin Naiya. The other perpetrators in the incident include Raju Naiya, Mintu Naiya, Mizanur Naiya, Bablu Naiya, Abul Hossein and several others.

How far have the Hindus been able to settle the matter? There has been no improvement thus far as the Muslims remain uncompromising all the way. Meanwhile, the condition of victims is moving steadily from bad to worse. The right hand of Kartik Pradhan in seriously injured and both his head and forehead bear testimony to the gruesome attack. Bhombal Pradhan is still bedridden and is unable to move on a bit even. Karna Pradhan, son of Bhombal Pradhan, a boy of 20 years merely, was also assaulted severely and remains panic-struck round the clock.

There has been no approach from the local Panchayat (village council) yet to bring culprits to book.

Sankrail - A Case of Muslim Appeasement and Failed Justice

On 9th Nov (Tuesday) night, in Sankrail (Howrah, West Bengal, India), a local Muslim ruffian (name not known) tried to snatch a gold chain from a Hindu woman. When the woman screamed for help, people from the neighborhood gathered (both Hindus and Muslims) and overpowered the thief. They started beating him, but somehow the thief was able to flee. Eventually he was caught again in Sarenga Uttarpara, where panchayat upa-pradhan (local elected official) from BJP, Barnali Naskar lives.

When the thug was brought into light, Muslims in the mob realized that he belongs to their religious community and that outraged them. Immediately more Muslims gathered and they reportedly attacked Hindus in the crowd with swords, bricks and sticks and multiple Hindus were injured by the attack. This incident alerted the police from Sankrail police station and they came in large numbers and camped in Sarenga.

But police were very biased and they started raiding only Hindu houses in the night. As a result many Hindus went into hiding in the night, since they feared that they will be arrested by police due to spurious cases registered by the local Muslims. Police did not yet arrest the Muslim thief. The Officer in Charge and the deputy OC of the local police station are involved in the harassment of innocent Hindus. The OC is even threatening the Hindus and saying that it is the fault of both communities, (in reality the Hindus are not at fault). The OC has threatened Barnali’s husband, who himself is a policeman, with dire consequence (to fire him) when he approached him for justice. Barnali also suspects that it could be a sinister plot by Muslims to prevent Hindus from celebrating the forthcoming Jagadhatri puja.

It must be noted here that Barnali is outspoken and courageous. She approached some senior leaders of her own party to interfere, but has not got any help so far. BJP is also stressing on Muslim appeasement like other political parties it seems. It is to be noted that the panchayat (local council) was formed jointly by BJP, Congress and TMC against CPM.

A BJP council member (a Muslim) named Seikh Nurujjaman, who recently changed his party affiliation from CPM to BJP, wanted to be the pradhan (Head of Council) but was foiled by other council members, and has allegedly developed a secret understanding with the CPM. Seikh is suspected to be the mastermind to pressurize the police to harass and arrest Hindus and to take the revenge for his failure to be the pradhan. He is trying to slap false cases against 20-25 innocent Hindus. He has taken Hindu names from the voter list, (some of them were even sleeping at the time of the attack), whether or not at all present at the place of the incident.

Recently there was another theft in a school building in which four known local Muslims were involved. Barnali and some other locals filed a diary against the perpetrators. What is outrageous is that the police is selectively harassing those who gave the diary. Barnali suspects that the culprits are trying to take revenge or divert attention by conspiring with the police.

Hindu Persecution in Budge Budge Gets All Time High

There is a well-known aphorism “A debt should be paid off till the last penny, and an enemy should be destroyed till last trace.” What may happen if the reverse takes place even for once? The answer is simple – the concerned debtor would meet disaster in due course and a person performing the mistake of pardoning an enemy would be destroyed by the same adversary. Perhaps you have already started to think what makes this scribe incorporate all these issues here. There is a greater issue as well. Have you ever found members of any majority community being persecuted in any country? The topic may be baffling to you but it is a reality and to know it well, all you have to do is to come to Village Jamalpur P.S.: Budge Budge, 24 Paraganas (South), West Bengal. The persecuted Hindu family is of the Purakaits.

What started off as a minor scuffle related to the ownership of a piece of land has become a major instrument for oppressing Hindus by local, neighbouring Muslims, and to one’s amazement, segregation is in full swing under the aegis of a handful of Muslims. What are the Hindus in the vicinity doing then? Ground reports do confirm to the existence of merely 12 Hindu families in the neighbourhood in opposition to 100 Muslim families, if not more. And the outcome is too evident. All the Hindu families are suffering major harassment at the hand of the neighbouring Muslim families. So one begs to ask, what lead to the legal entanglement?

Here is a brief account of the past happening: the original owner of the land was a woman of the same Purakait family who gifted the land her own nephew. The nephew, no less than 30 years ago, was in need of money and so he mortgaged 10 cottah (60 cottah = 1 acre) of his land to a Hindu. He finally paid back the mahajan (rural moneylender), but the mahajan illegally sold the land to a Muslim who was a school teacher by profession. Eventually the Muslim individual went on to build a house on the same land and has been living there for close to 28 years at a stretch. As per Purakaits, at the moment, 15 katha (1/4 acre) of land has been occupied by the Muslim family illegally.

There is also a Manasa "thaan" (small family owned temple dedicated to local Deity) on that forcibly acquired land "dakhali" land (conquered land in rural dialect). Recently the Muslim "dakhaldar" (illegal occupier, in local dialect) built a wall to thwart local Hindus from going to the Manasa temple. When the Hindus protested, Muslims "staged" the whole incident to look like an attack by Hindus. They broke the wall themselves, pretended to get sick and staged a siege by Hindus. In accordance with the persecuted family, a Muslim inspector called Ali Babu helped the Muslims to stage such fake incidents. After the staged incident, they went to police station and filed a case against all 14 Hindu men. The situation made the already poor situation even worse for the resident Hindus and forced the male members of the Purakait family flee as they were threatened with dire consequences, affecting the financial condition of the family a great deal. Even when Hindus appealed for help to local political parties like CPIM & TMC, there was none whatsoever.

Only then, they sought assistance from Hindu Samhati and with its help, they could return after spending days wandering. When a team of Hindu Samhati volunteers went to the spot on 6th November, 2010, to take stock of the situation, they found that a calf was tied alongside the aforementioned sanctified Manasa "thaan" for ritual Islamic slaughter, an act considered abominable in Hindu religion and to be prohibited at all costs. This essentially was a challenge thrown by the local Islamic community to the resident Hindus to prohibit the dominant Muslims from desecrating the Hindu temple by cow slaughter, an act that often forces Hindus to leave their places of residence. It is to be noted that cow slaughter in Baker Eid has already been banned by the Honorable Supreme Court of India. While talking to the Hindu Samhati correspondents, members of the Purakait family clarified that foremost objective of Muslims has always been complete eviction of Hindus from the neighborhood.

Hindus are determined to get back their own legitimate land and are determined to fight off all adversities no matter what. Hindu Samhati is also helping the Hindus obtain drinking water that has become difficult due to continuous persecution.

Muslim Rowdies Drag, Beat Hindu Youth at Taki Mercilessly

Situation in the social life of Bengal is turning from bad to worse. It is becoming evident that all it takes is a minor altercation between two individuals for a incident to become a alibi for Muslims to attack Hindus. Such an incident was perceived again on 18th November, 2010 at Ward no. 8 in Taki Municipality, PS: Hasnabad (Dist: North 24 Parganas, West bengal, India) at 1.30 pm. when a Hindu youth named Anup Rishi Das was virtually dragged by a gang of Muslim youth and beaten mercilessly. 

In accordance with sources, during the recent procession of Goddess Jagaddhatri, a Hindu festival, a Muslim van driver pushed and shoved some people to get in line. Afterwards, the same van driver brought some Muslim goons in the scenario. This gang became instrumental in dragging Anup and beating him. 

The gang consisted of all local ruffians including Kenamal, Bapi Gazi, Teoar Ali, Sufiyan Mondal, Rabiul Gazi, all Muslims.

Hindus are apprehensive of the danger that awaits them. As a mark of protest, Hindus blocked the road and lodged FIR in the local police station. (FIR: 71153/10 dtd. 18/11/10).

None of the Islamic assailants have been arrested yet.

Hindus in Haroa Get Thrashed by Islamist Mob; Administration Remains Apathetic

Hindu Property Attacked, Temple Ransacked by Muslim Fanatics

A mere wrangle between two groups of people ended into a communal clash and fanatic upsurge of a band of Muslims victimizing the Hindu residents of Haroa located in the Basirhat subdivision of North 24 Parganas, West Bengal on November 2nd, 2010.

The village of Haroa is locally well-known for celebration of “KaliPuja” and has been going on with the same fervor for decades at a stretch. And worshiping at the local Matridham Kali temple deserves a special mention. As in previous years, volunteers of the “Puja” committee were busy on the fateful day to request donations from passersby, especially in automobiles. Similarly they also approached an automobile, matador no. WB51 4221 around 1.30 pm following which the vehicle stopped a few meters away. When the volunteers requested them for the donation, the driver, a Muslim by faith, repeatedly abused the worshiping practices of the Hindus and the Hindu religion in general. This resulted in a short scuffle between the abusing Muslims and the Hindu volunteers.

Under ordinary circumstances, that would have been the end of it. However, in this situation, this was not the case. Within a few of hours around 3.30 pm, a mob of over five thousand Muslims from Haripur & Mazampur areas reached the spot with sticks, brick-bats and bombs and without any provocation targeted the Hindus there injuring at least 25 of them seriously. Among them two persons, Kalipada Sardar and Nirmal Mondal, both Hindus, sustained heavy injuries. What is even more terrifying is that the attackers did not even spare the Hindu women. Shikha Karmakar and Jayanti Karmakar, both Hindu women, were wounded while resisting the looting by the Muslim mob. In addition, they also threatened the Hindus and the upcoming festival with grave consequences. They also broke the Tulsi mandir & tube-wells of a few houses and targetted the rice mill of Shalipur-Dhanpota Bazar owned by anothe Hindu, Subal Chandra Karmakar.

One is now compelled to ask, what was the local police and administration doing when the Muslims were on a rampage destroying property and threatening the Hindus? We are saddened to report that it was busy pacifying the unruly mob and censuring Hindus following FIRs (First Information Report) against 11 of them lodged by the same Muslims. Then Muslims blocked the State Highway No. 91 (Haroa Road) for one and half hours demanding the arrest of Hindus named in the said FIR. The result has been excruciating for Hindus who had to compensate Rs. 20,000 to the Muslims for creating alleged nuisances. Even if tranquility prevails at the moment, Hindus are still panicked and anticipating further attacks on their community.

Islamist Mob Beats up Hindus in Kulpi, West Bengal

Innocent Hindu rickshaw-puller and local Hindus beaten up by armed Islamist mob in Kulpi

One Muzzamel Shekh, owner of a tea stall at Siddhiberia More (crossing), PS Kulpi, Diamond Harbour Sub-Division, (S24 Parganas, West Bengal, India) had recently increased the span of his illegally encroached area originally belonging to the PWD ( Public Works Dept. WB Govt.). The tea stall was a temporary structure built with bamboo and weaved mat, which he has now made into a permanent structure using bricks and mortar. While doing so he had made a second opening of his stall on the northern end although he already had a frontal opening on the eastern side of his shop . It is important to mention that on the northern side of his shop there is the local cycle–rickshaw stand along a road and an annual Durga Puja is also held there. To facilitate customer entry through the northern opening of his shop, he laid a slab that extended over the road and was a nuisance for the local vehicular traffic since its construction.

On 26th October 2010 at about 09:00 Hrs. a cycle-rickshaw got stuck in between two buses coming form either ends of the road on the northern side of Muzzamel Shekh’s tea stall. The rickshaw-puller had to draw his rickshaw over the said slab of the tea stall to make way for the vehicles to pass. The cycle–rickshaw was driven by Sri Bhulo Halder, son of Sri Anando Halder, who was mercilessly assaulted by Muzzamel Shekh and other Muslim youths who were present at the spot or at the tea stall, for driving his van over the slab in front of the shop. After assaulting him, these Muslim tried to abduct and take away Sri Halder when local people, mostly Hindus who were present at the spot intervened, blocked the road and demanded that the police to take action against the miscreants and sort out the problem. After a while the police arrived to bring the situation under control and tried to pacify the crowd gathered at the spot and remove the road blockade. The local Muslims present there started to remove the road blockade by themselves ignoring the presence of the police. Thus there was a scuffle between the Hindus and the Muslims and the later were then joined by other Muslims from the nearby locality who came armed with iron pipes and crude bombs. With an increase in strength, they started to hit the Hindus and hurled at least six such bombs. The Islamic rampage was mostly led by Illias Halder, Amin Vaidya, Nasir Sheikh, Mobarak Paik along with other accomplices. The Police then fled and the situation worsened. Gautam Mondal and Bishnu Halder were abducted by the rampaging Muslims as they now out numbered the unarmed Hindus, who in any case were no match to resist the heavily armed Muslims.

The Muslims filed a frivolous complaint against the Hindus (vide G.D.1328—FIR-216) at the Kulpi police station on 26th November, 2010, accusing them of burning two shops owned by Muslims. This however turned out to be incorrect and has been vehemently opposed by the local Hindus who attributed the arson to a matter of internal rivalry among the Muslims; this was independently confirmed by our sources on ground. Later the Hindus also filed a complaint at the Kulpi police station (vide G.D.1371---FIR-217) against the Jihadi mob on the same date accusing them of abduction and assault. Gautam Mandal, Bishnu Halder, Anando Halder, Partha Halder and Uttam Mistry were admitted to the local Hospital with serious injuries and the overall situation remains grim and tense. Interestingly, the said Muzzamel Shekh is now stating to local Hindus that he had to do this menace under pressure from Illias Halder, Amin Vaidya and Nasir Shekh thus he is not at fault, but the mystery is whether he is going to officially confirm his statement or not!

Bagnan - Hindus Challenge the Rapidly Growing Influence of Jihadis

Bagnan (West Bengal, India) is facing a growing threat from Islam. Over the past few years, there has been a rapid transformation in the frame of mind of Muslim youth there, thanks to political endorsements from 'secularist' parties. It is getting more and more evident that they are driven to seize control of the neighborhood and to do so, are willing to go to any extent. An assortment of instances can be cited to prove the same even in the most short and snappy manner.

For example, the incident of 1st September, which happened at the Children’s Club, close to Bagnan College. The secretary of the club is Shafiqul Islam, a Muslim fundamentalist and president of Youth Congress and has become a terror to the Hindu girls in the college. He has been involved with scores of incidents leading to riots and violence and thanks to this glorious (?) track record, Shafiqul has been able to terrorize the entire locality. One of his victims managed to notify workers of Hindu Samhati, engaged with preparion work for the “Janmashtami” festival at the local Saraswati Ashram.

The information was enough to invigorate Samhati workers and 40/50 of them proceeded towards the Children’s Club on a short notice. They, along with local Hindus tracked down Shafiqul's accomplices and prevented them for rioting any further after chasing them out of that area.

This was not just a single isolated incident. A similar incident took place at Muralibar. On 29th September, two intoxicated Muslim youths were misbehaving with passerbys. When Hindus protested, they retreated. Shortly, thereafter, they came back riding motorcycles (together with swords and other weapons) under the leadership of Murshid Ali Khan, a Muslim activist. threatened the Hindus and warned them of riots. When they, along with Murshid threatened the local Hindus again, the Hindus resisted aggressively and forced them to flee.

All these led to the intervention of police and the crook was taken to the local police station. The Muslim youths, without wasting a single moment, sought support of Akkel Ali, local Member of the Legislative Assembly who consequently went to the police station and remained there till the release of the crook. No case could be registered by Bagnan PS against these crooks in spite of flaunting and attacking others with weapons and the sole reason behind the same is the religious identity of the attacker being a Muslim.

Spirited Resistance Led to Grand Durga Puja in Mograhat

Hindu Samhati Empowers Hindus Thwart Jihadist Efforts to Block Durga Puja in Mograhat, West Bengal

It is a reality that local Muslims made all efforts last year to thwart the 26-year old Durga Puja of Shovarani Athletic Club of Village: Dakshin Marjada, PS: Mograhat, District: S 24 Parganas, West Bengal state in India . But this is not the only problem claimed by them. A burial ground that exists alongside the club and has stimulated the Muslims to claim that the club is also on the same land. As a part of this claim they put up a massive gate to commemorate Eid (just in front of the Puja pandal) and their intention was to retain the status quo. The Hindus were not willing to accept this gross injustice and this led to commotion in the neighborhood. Tapan Ghosh, president of Hindu Samhati visited the hot spot after Muslims were attempting to pull down the entire structure of the pandal(Hindu altar). 

To tell the truth, only in this year, when the preparations of Puja were in full swing, Muslims appeared in the scenario along with the police and stated that they had the court’s order to shut the puja. The police was also found to act in accordance with the directions of Muslims and instructed the Puja organizers to suspend the construction of pandal straight away. This was not all. Police of Mograhat also made it clear since the Ayodhya verdict had distracted Muslims, the Puja would worsen the condition only. This would lead to more disasters and hence, Puja had be stopped in all ways.

Such communal statements were enough to excite Hindus, especially women who came out of their houses at once and started agitating and protesting in front of the police. The news spread like a wild fire to the activists of Samhati at Hotor and than 300 activists arrived on the spot within a few minutes. The police was forced to retreat before the vigorous and unified protests of villagers and activists of Hindu Samhati. On the very next day, getting apprehensive of the forthcoming danger, the local administration convened the two hostile groups viz. Hindus and Muslims in a meeting. Khalil Sheikh and Jalil Sheikh tried to impede the progress of meeting in every way and even warned of to brutal force on behalf of the Islamists.

It is to be noted that prior to the same, Rathin Das (Buroda), acclaimed local leader of Trinamool Congress (TMC), tried his best to refrain Hindus from including Hindu Samhati in their meetings. Nevertheless, none of the political leaders or the administrators could prevent entrance of armed Muslims from far off Mallickpur, Park Circus in Kolkata, Shankarpur, Gazir Hat, Mograhat, Sangrampur, Netra, Bajeberia and places into the area. Hindus were wondering why was Rathin Das not giving the same advice to the Muslims, and if so, why were they not listening to him? His efforts ended with stopping Hindus from getting more activ 

The situation alarmed the Hindus and they after witnessing the obnoxious efforts of the local Muslims, also started reorganizing themselves. They have taken serious lessons from the events in Deganga and are equipped to repel any attack at any time from the Islamists. One of the best specimens of this changed frame of mind is the rising graph of Hindu Samhati in Mograhat and adjoining PS: Usthi. For these reasons, in the meeting Maulanas (Muslim preachers) were found commenting that they would cooperate with the Hindus in the celebration of the Hindu religious Pujas or else, they feared energized and organized Hindus, as a result, might create serious havoc.

Durga Puja of Shovarani Athletic Club was carried out with full pomp and splendor. It was inaugurated by Tapan Kumar Ghosh, president, Hindu Samhati, on the day of Maha Sasthi.

Hindu SC Families Get Persecuted in Budge Budge

In the Suburbs of Kolkata Hindu SC Group Faces Severe Persecution From Islamists

Surely you have perceived the presence of a few Muslim families amid a Hindu neighborhood and their untroubled livelihood as a result. What may happen if there is any reverse? Life becomes unbearable completely and the same is happening with 5 Taphsili families at the moment in Jamalpur village, near Birla Crossing, of Police Station Budge Budge, S 24 Parganas, West Bengal. These families belong to the impoverished Purakaits, living in the ocean of Muslim neighborhood. They have been subject to all types of ridicules of the Muslim majority community and the situation is such that the Hindu women of this family, in order to have drinking water from the Muslim locality crossing the main road, become subject to each type of derision. It is worthwhile to mention that this destitute Hindu family has its own sacred “Than” of “Devi Manasa”, ie, a shrine which is worshiped on a daily basis.

Nevertheless, in spite of all these their neighbor Mosharaff, capitalizing on a 32-years old land-related scuffle, is leaving no stone unturned to get hold of the said “Than”, without a shred of doubt illegally. They have created a wall already to obstruct Hindus from going on with their daily worship and the problem, in this regard, did strengthen on recent 16 October, “Nabami” of Durga Puja”. Even if the O.C. of local Police Station: Budge Budge, on that very day, did stop the construction of wall, the Muslim family, being stimulated by some potent yet obscure major power, was witnessed to go on with its project.

Well, the absence of male members at the residence (at that time), owing to professional engagements, helped Muslims to a large extent. Women of the Hindu families are getting apprehensive decided to worship the consecrated “Than” of “Devi Manasa” through a 6-year old girl of the family. However, it did fail to please the brutal souls and the kid was shoved. This situation did enrage women of the Purakait family and they had hardly any option other than breaking the mud wall. The Muslims alleging the same as a grave offence ransacked the house of the Purakaits. Prashanta Purakait, getting hold of the entire news through mobile phone, lodged a complaint in the local police station. A Muslim police officer, named Ali Babu, was sent to investigate the entire development.

The officer, devoid of any reason and in spite of dissents of other police personnel, made Prashanta Purakait leave the police vehicle just outside the police station. Ali Babu, a Muslim police officer, as usual, sided for Muslims and owing to his presence, the wall could be erected once again. In the meantime, Mosharaff dispersed puffed rice in the courtyard and put a baby of his family, affected with chicken pox or varicella, there. The Muslims started to keep tabs on the entire family and threatened to chop off the male members the moment they returned. As a result, male members of the house of Purakaits couldn’t get into their ancestral dwelling and instead, got half-immersed in the nearby swampy land for no less than 3-4 hours. Women got panic-stricken.

On the following day, it was learnt that false cases had been lodged against 14 male persons in the local police station. After staying outside for a week, being terrified of Muslims and also police, Hindu Samhati was contacted by the Hindu families. The entire family got adequate assistance from Samhati (in every respect). While on one hand their confidences were boosted, again their financial conditions were taken care of. And on 31 October, the male members, thanks to Samhati leadership, could return to their houses. In the following days, they were provided pre-bail from the Alipore Court.

It is to be noted that the hapless family was once associated with Communist Party of India Marxist once, but none of the party did ever come forward for rescuing them. It can be said without doubt, had there been no Hindu Samhati, it would have been impossible for them to remain there. The caste-ridden Hindu society also could not endorse them owing to age-old caste differences. Nonetheless, the bravery of female members of Purakait family must be credited.

What is most astounding, persistent disdains and persecutions on this family failed to affect other Hindus. These actions make us remind the immortal sermons of Swami Vivekananda. As per the revolutionary saint, in spite of the fact that Advaita philosophy of Hindus is the best in human civilization, there is hardly any reflection of the same traits in the entire society.

In accordance with latest news, the Muslims have purchased a cow, fastened it with the consecrated “Than” and have announced that they would sacrifice her in the forthcoming Id. Bear in mind that this is going to be the first immolation of a beast (as per Islamic scriptures) there. Even if any sacrifice of cows devoid of the assistance of administration is illegitimate, any such restriction does hardly matter. Law has got to be abided by Hindus only and this is called “Secularism”.

Communal Tension in Sankrail, Howrah; Admistration Proves Partiality

Sankrail Remains Tense; Administration Prefers to Cajole Muslim Zealots 

Muslim Attackers Break Trekker Owned by Hindus; Hindus Retaliate by Breaking Motorbikes of Muslim Attackers

Time is changing very fast and one of its best instances can be found in Sankrail. Do you know where Sankrail is? Sankrail happens to be a census town in Sadar subdivision of Howrah district in the Indian state of West Bengal and has been witness to the mounting Islamic rage in the neighborhood. What did happen in reality? Well, to the amazement of Hindu community the approach and also the frame of mind of Muslims have been changing with the passing of each day almost!

The situation that rocked Sankrail in recent days had its beginning with the unfortunate death of a Muslim girl owing to the accident of a road trekker on 12th September, 2010. The situation proved to be enough to stimulate local Muslims to go on a rampage and the prime target was none other than innocent Hindus and their fairly affluence. What did startle the Muslim zealots the incident did enrage Hindus in return; the tit for tat played a good role in bringing down the intensity.

Nevertheless, in the entire incident, the most disheartening, scandalous role was played by none other than Shital Sardar, local MLA representing Trinamool Congress (TMC), a perfect Vaishnavite in appearance. Mr. Sardar, along with 2-3 Muslim leaders of TMC, made a brief visit to the area and tried to pacify the fuming Hindus and did all that could make position of Hindus more insecure. It is alleged that he was instructed by the party top brass to calm the situation and disarm Hindus at any cost. This proves furious Hindus can send a shudder through the spine of administration.

Samar Roy, a Hindu, Son of Late Tulsi Roy has been slapped with Case no. SKL 486/10. U/S, 147, 148, 325, 153(A), 186, 353, 427, assaulted bt the Police and arrested. Other Hindus facing charges are Netai Bhattacharya, Kanai Bhattacharya, Somnath Das, Arun Das. There has been no arrests of Muslims reported so far.

The situation in the dominion of Sankrail continues to be tense but not out of control. However, the antipathy of local police and administration against local Hindu youth continues, continuing harassment and threats against them remain supreme.

Puja Pandal Attacked in Basanti

Can Hindus get justice in secular India ever? Time to evade such a daydream!

Islamists attacked a Hindu religious function in Basanti, and desecrated the altar and destroyed the Murthi (Icon) of Goddess Lakshmi by chooping off the head and hands of the Deity. The local police has remained mute spectators against the attackers. In contrast, they forced the devotees to drown the Murthi and local arrested Hindus for protesting and have not allowed the media to cover the communal event.  

Religious discrimination is always blameworthy and allegations of state-sponsored majoritarian communalism, especially from the alleged votaries of secularism – Leftists and Islamists, are not new. But the same forces prefer to retain a strange silence when the situation gets reverse and the same is going on at Ranigarh, Jyotishpur Bazar, P.S.: Basanti, West Bengal in full swing.

The neighborhood is known for its Radha Krishna Temple, has been performing Durga Puja, greatest festival of Bengali Hindus, for 32 years at a stretch. But the situation started to worsen when the Muslim community of the vicinity did settle on to organize an Id-Milan Utsav in the field adjacent to the said Temple on 31.10.10. The decision, clearly discerned as a ploy to usurp political control of the entire area was enough to stimulate local Hindus and owing to their determination and struggle tooth and nail, the sinister design did suffer a humiliating defeat.
Meanwhile local leaderships of CPM & RSP did leave no stone unturned to go on with the Id-Milan Utsav, but the resistance of Hindus proved to be strong for them.

The xituation was out of the frying pan into the fire when local Muslims started to avenge the defeat – Nagar Sankirtan teams of the Temple (a common Vaishnavite ritual taking place early in the morning) were insulted, threatened for consecutive days and women were manhandled in particular. However, this was somewhat trivial compared to the recent events on account of Laxmi Puja. The pandal or makeshift temple for worshipping the Goddess in the Radha Krishna Temple did suffer a sacrilege. The head of Idol of Goddess Laxmi along with two hands were chopped off; the entire pandal was also desecrated.

The situation was enough to infuriate the local Hindus who burst into protest. Witnessing the mounting Hindu rage police contingents were deployed with immediate effect but it was all to no avail. Even Subhash Naskar, Irrigation Minster of the State of West Bengal and local RSP leader tried to pacify the situation. But, contrary to his own belief, he was gheraoed (surrounded) for no less than almost two hours and could get out of the place under police protection only after announcing over microphone that the said Id Milan Utsav will not be allowed to be held at the declared venue near the temple.

Police officers (I.C. Pinaki Roy and others) tried to their best to make Hindus immerse the broken idol but the obstinacy of Hindus, not ready to do the same till taking into custody of the culprits, could not be dealt with by them. Nevertheless the partisan attitude of the administration has got revealed though several incidents hitherto – gravest of these has been non-availability of any authentic number or governmental authorization even after lodging an FIR.

In the evening a mob of 200-300 Muslims gathered to assault the Hindus but checked by the timely intervention of the police. Tension reigns supreme in the neighborhood.

P.S.: The police has forced Hindus to immerse the desecrated Idol of Goddess Laxmi and has taken a few Hindu youth into custody to maintain tranquility. However, any culprit is yet to get arrested.

Addendum - Information Hitherto:

Hindus in Basanti go on shivering – in fright and uncertainty
There seems to be no respite for the Hindus at Ranigarh, Jyotishpur Bazar, P.S.: Basanti, West Bengal, who dared to voice their protests against the sinister designs of the administrative scenario, local and also state-wide, under the cloak of secularism.

Not only a deep uncertainty and panic do exist in the Hindu-infested areas, but their houses are also getting subject to forceful searches, abuses and what not. Even the Hindu women are not being spared all at once. It seems that the local administration has got partisan in hurling abuses too – Hindu women, thanks to their intrinsic tender and motherly attitude, seems to be a better choice.

No spectacle of development in the political environment has been perceived yet. What is most striking, Hindu-Muslim Milan Utsav (whose potential celebration on 30/31 October had been announced and was deferred owing to the timely intervention of Subhash Naskar, Irrigation Minster of the State of West Bengal and local RSP leader) has become bone of contention once again. It is being alleged that pressures are piling up on local governmental councils to make Utsav a success. The situation is tensed and heavy presence of police contingents in the neighborhood can be seen.

In the meantime, Banamali Dalui who has been arrested as an alleged miscreant against the FIR No. 327/10/10 is languishing in the Alipore Central Jail and has been charged under Sections – 149,186, 353, 323, 565. The next hearing will be on 28.October.10.Hindus in West Bengal are increasingly being accustomed with the secular system of justice in which the Muslim perpetrator of crime against the Hindus will not be arrested and the protestor Hindus will be arrested to pacify the Muslims. To the administration it is the golden method to maintain law and order, and to the secularists, this is the only golden way to uphold secularism.

Communal Tensions Flare Up in Katwa, Burdhwan District

Communal Tensions Rise in Katwa After Muslims Abuse Hindus in Durga Puja

During Durga Puja (Socio-Religious festival of Bengali Hindus), Oct 16,2010 (Nabami-ninth day) night several Muslims youth gathered in front of a Palita Road Puja Mandap (Hindu religious altar) and used abusive and condescending language against Hindus and the Hindu faith in presence of the police. The mandap is near Katwa railroad station in Katwa town (Police Station is Katwa in Burdhwan District of West Bengal). Ujwal Das, a Hindu devotee approached the police personnel and tried to draw their attention to this act by the disturbing elements. The Muslims got upset and started youths started beating Mr. Das. Communal tensions went up in the area. Later a few Hindu youths beat up a Muslim man who they identified as one of the Muslims who were abusing the Hindus at their religious program.

A few days later, some milkmen of the Ghosh community were coming through a Muslim area after distributing chana (curdled milk) in Kesia. The Muslims abused them and started a chaos regarding parking. The concerned Hindus were seriously attacked, they randomly hit back to escape from the spot. This escape by the Hindus made the Muslims furious and one of the local religious Muslim criminals named Johny made a visit to Hindu area; the Hindus naturally anticipated that he was there for inspection and strategizing for a well planned attack on the Hindu area, Bandra. The Hindus caught him, took him into a house and beat him black severely. This is the reporting recieved so far by HS activists in the location. Area is still tensed and RAF (Rapid Action Force) has been deployed.

Mograhat Proves Hindus Can Also Triumph.

* One…….Two……….Three – Create Many Mograhats *

There is a calculated myth across the globe (and more among the adversaries of Dharma) that pluralist Hindus can’t fight at all and succumb to the first shot of every onslaught. As already said this is nothing else save for a long drawn out parable and the time has come to break the same altogether and prove Hindus can also struggle for the sake of Dharma. Well, there is nothing to lose hope as village of Dakshin Marjada under Mograhat P.S. in South 24 Parganas district has shown the way.

What happened in 2009?

Sovarani Atheletic Club and a Muslim graveyard is side by side. Lat year, Muslims created tried to obstruct the Hindu festival of Durga Puja. The Hindus resisted. This year, Muslims claimed that they have obtained some court judgement in their favour to stop the Puja. Hence they tried to obstruct the Puja.

How did the new saga begin?

Well, the main perpetrators in the entireincident have been the responsible (?) police personnel in Mograhat P.S. who were quick enough to ask the local 'Dakshin Marjada Sovarani Atheletic Club" to bring their 26 year old Durgapuja to a close in the wake of Ayodhya verdict. The police proved to be proficient to realize celebration of the biggest festival of Bengali Hindus would be another assault on the Muslims wounded by the verdict. Well, they were not alone; the local Trinamool Congress dominated Panchayat (under the aegis of Muslims completely) proved to be the foremost player behind this sudden diktat.

However, something did go wrong. Hindus, instead of getting demoralized, did gear up and pledged to go on with the Puja no matter what. But what was most striking, an influential member of the local Trinamool Congress, Rathin Kumar Das (Buroda) requested local Hindus not to include Hindu Samhati in the entire episode. However, he remained futile to ask Muslims to maintain the same coveted tranquility, witnessed to prepare themselves with all kinds of dreaded arms and ammunitions. The local mosque became the meeting point apart from becoming the greatest storehouse of munition. Even Muslims from Mallickpur, Park Circus in Kolkata, Shankarpur, Gazir Hat, Mograhat, Sangrampur, Netra, Bajeberia and other places in neighborhood were included in the local militia to foment worst attacks on the local Hindus.

On Saturday evening Muslims were found to regroup themselves in mosque close at hand, an incident enough to alarm the Hindus, who started to prepare themselves too. Even the prearranged BDO meeting to settle the issue of Puja was hindered by Muslims under leadership of Khalil Sheikh and Jalil Sheikh. Khalil Sheikh was found to state that they have the power to show! The situation and its mounting intensity alerted the local administration, compelled to deploy Black Cat to vacate the land of Muslims.

Nevertheless, in spite of all troubles created by Muslim hoodlums and owing to resolve of Hindus in particular, the said meeting went on. In the meeting Maulanas were found to say that they were ready to cooperate with Hindus in the celebration of Puja or else they feared energized Hindus, as a result, might create havoc. All these did take place even if Khalil did remain

What is the end result then? As far as the decision of local administration, Hindus will go on with the Puja. Triumphant Hindu community brought out procession to celebrate the victory.

Mograhat proves Hindus can also triumph.

Bajrangbali Banned in Bengal

Mr. Prashanta Das, a Hindu businessman and resident of Chingripota, near Budge Budge, Kolkata had an unwanted stranger on August 14, 2010, Officer in Charge, Mr. Rajiv Sharma of BojBoj Police Station. The item of contention was a statue of Hindu icon Lord Hanuman on the gate of the businessman's house. The newly appointed officer visited Mr. Das' house without any notice and threatened him for allegedly provoking the local devout Muslims and hurting their religious sentiments by having this deity.

The police officer further stated that the Muslims who were coming to offer namaz (Muslim prayer) complained that “to see this Hindu idol while doing Namaz is anti-Islam and blasphemous and should be immediately brought down”. (The mosque where the Muslims pray is next to the Das residence and is built illegally on a plot of land which was illegally confiscated from the Das family by the Muslim fanatics). Hence, the officer repeatedly insisted that statue had to be altered, faced inside or taken down.

After listening to this, Mr.Das was speechless, did not know how to react to such an outrageous insane complaint and that too coming from a senior Police officer.

Mr. Das stated that “Pavan putra Hanuman may appear as an eyesore to the local Muslims but in our family, He is our revered family deity and we respect Him supremely; As part of our religious freedom and right, we installed the statue on my place, on my residence. I did not illegally occupy any body's land and install it”. Mr.Sharma was very angry hearing such straight-forward reply and gave Mr. Das an ultimatum that "Either you cover the statue or remove it immediately otherwise I will be pressing criminal charges against you.” Mr. Das told Mr. Sharma, "I will not remove the statue because this deity is on my property and I have, as a citizen, every right to put anything on my property and no body can stop me doing that”

Prashanta Das has sought the direct help of Hindu Samhati to retain the statue of Lord Hanuman in his home. Hindu Samhati is providing legal and logistical help to ward off the threat from the police administration which is itself turning into an instrument of the local Islamists.

Hindu Samhati requests readers to write to their local Member of Parliament (MPs), and Member of Legislative Assembly (MLAs), and the maistream media to stop their Islamic appeasement policy, and prevent discrimination against Hindus in Bengal. Please write to us for more information on this issue.
