Will Gangasagar cease to belong to Hindus exclusively?

Gangasagar or Sagar Island, positioned on the continental shelf of Bay of Bengal almost 150 km (80 nautical miles) south of Kolkata, doesn’t need any new reference. It is famed worldwide as a significant Hindu pilgrim place where on each year tens of thousands of Hindus on the day of Makar Sankranti (mid of January) take holy dip in the confluence of Ganga and offer puja in the temple of Kapil Muni.

Hence, for all these, Gangasagar has become the next target of Islamic Jihadists, backed by political parties as well. These days Islamic religious ceremonies, under the aegis of Trinamool Congress and CPM, are becoming more and more common in the entire island and all are happening without the necessary permission of microphones even.

Hindus, on the contrary, are facing umpteen problems to hold religious gatherings! While they are not being allowed to make use of microphones, other problems like harassments of Hindus by administration even on flimsy grounds have become a reality.

Is this the best reward to the majority community by Indian Governance?
