If Hindus Struggle, They Will Emerge Victorious
It is proved again that Hindus, if they are determined and vigorous, can defeat any Muslim onslaught and Malancha, under Minakha Police Station in Basirhat sub division of North 24 Parganas district in West Bengal shows the way. The problem started on 14th November 2010 at 11.00 pm with the verbal assault and eve-teasing of Hindu girls by Rajibul Gayen, son of Head of Minakha Village Panchyat, and his few other accomplices, at the function organized by the local club – Milan Sangha on the occasion of Jagaddhatri Puja (a Hindu religious festival).
The unified protests of Hindus of the area and the organizers of the Hindu festival made them flee from the site for the time being and this was followed by the appearance of Majjid Gayen (father of Rajibul Gayen), a Muslim and Head of Village Panchayat, and his teammates for a compromise before the presence of a police officer.
The situation flared up yet again on 16th November 2010 at 11.00 am when a Hindu vegetable seller named Bholanath Biswas was dragged by a handful of Muslim zealots to the local Malancha Bazar, to the shop of Jaynal Mollah, a Muslim, and was beaten severely and also robbed. As mark of a protest to this terrible development, Hindus blocked the local traffic.
A group of Muslim activists appeared in the scenario soon and attacked the Hindu Puja altar devoid of any provocation. But, contrary to their beliefs, they had to retreat and get thrashed owing to the fierce resistance of the Hindus. The intensity of the situation can be proved from the fact that Officer in Charge of Minakha P.S. Mr. Arindam Mukherjee was beaten up by the Muslims and this led to serious injury in his right hand. But active defense by the Hindus and reinforcement of police force put the Muslim attackers in disarray.
RAF was deployed to maintain law and order and also tranquility in the area and the other obligations including the pre-destined program went on successfully. The immersion of Goddess remained witness to a grand transformation of Hindu frame of mind. More than 2,000 Hindu devotees participated in the program with preparations to deal with any eventuality and no less than 500 women participated in it.
As far as the latest development is concerned, police is yet to provide the General Diary no. of the FIR lodged in the local police station.
