Mamata gifts Urdu – second-language, Aliah Madrasa University to Muslims

What next? Complete dominion!

This may be termed as a mere coincidence but truly at times bizarre similarities are found in stances of two political leaders representing two different ages on the whole. Whether it is regarding benevolence and zeal to better humanity or even haughtiness, similitude is often found out. Now the two here are Muhammad Ali Zinnah, founder of Pakistan and Mamata Banerjee, newest Chief Minister of West Bengal.

While the first one proclaimed Urdu as the national language of Pakistan leading to a rebellion in its eastern half and secession ultimately, Mamata Banerjee has declared recently with same haughtiness that Urdu would be second-language in Indian Bengal henceforth. In spite of being a worshiper of Goddess Kali personally, she didn’t have the time to take views of majority Hindu community (in this regard) in the state into account.

It has been learnt that Urdu would be given second-language status in districts with a 10 per cent or more Urdu-speaking population. Massive governmental encouragements, both in money and kind, will follow soon.

This is not all. Bengal Chief Minister, in her bid to woo the ever-expanding Muslim population in the state, has also stated unequivocally of the restoration of the word “Madrasa” to the name of Aliah University. Notably, earlier Left Front government had expunged the word “Madrasa” when it gave Madrasa Aliah the status of a university.

The response of Muslims, forming a chunk of Indian Bengal’s populace, is naturally wild and they have already started favoring Didi. Now meet Shamim Ahmed, one of persistent campaigners to carry on agitations for making Urdu the second official language in the state. The delighted man stated, “What the CPI(M) government could not do in three decades, Mamatadi has done in a week.”

Truly, ouster of Left Front and Trinamool’s victory in just concluded assembly polls has saved the democratic scenario in Bengal from utter collapse. But Trinamool’s mounting endeavor to court Muslims is also a dangerous indication.

Even if similar status would be granted to other linguistic minorities, including Hindi, Oriya, Nepali, Gurmukhi and Santhali languages, in areas where people speaking those languages go beyond 10 per cent of the total population, center of attention remains Urdu and thus to have favor of Muslims. Remember Urdu is regarded as the soul of Islam in Indian subcontinent and certainly post-independent India. What Mamata does not know or pretend to not to know, governmental support behind Urdu can lead to rise in divisive tendencies only.

You have every right to castigate the said article.

Why don’t you read origin of Pakistan movement, its formative years and final triumph before that? Perhaps you can brush yourself up then.

Glimpses of mosques in Kolkata

Kolkata, grand capital of the Indian state of West Bengal, without a shred of doubt, happens to be a bastion of Muslims as well and evidences of this can be found in every nook of the metropolis. It is not known when and how the Muslim presence commenced in Kolkata but surely Pathan, Mughal or simply Islamic invasions played a great role in this regard.

In accordance with latest statistics, no less than 450 mosques in the city fortify the Islamic confidence and its density is known to be highest in the central district of the urban center. Muslim density, as usual, is highest in this part of the city. Now let’s pay attention to the mosques in particular. Even if there are some noted ones, most laudable ones among these include Nakhoda Masjid, Tipu Sultan Masjid, Rajabazar Barri Masjid, Ahl-e-Hadees Masjid. Nakhoda Masjid was built in the year 1926 and is found to lead the Muslim community of city in almost all religious aspects.

Others include Jumma Masjid, Masjid-e-Mohamadi in the midst of Park Circus and Lal Masjid in Colootolla. There is also Karbala Masjid in Metiaburuz, known for conforming to Shiah beliefs. Others are known for following the Sunni way of practice. Rajabazar Barri Masjid has already been talked of; its environs contain 11 mosques in total as well. Among them Tablighi Jamaat (Deobandi) deals with the affairs of 9 Masjid or mosques. The remaining two are managed by Sunni Barelwi faction.

There is another significant aspect to all these. The last mosque in Kolkata, as per records, was built in the central district of the city in 1942. And the majority of all was built between 1910 and 1940 by the pre-partition Muslim population.

Here is a few more information of Nakhoda Masjid. The prayer hall of the mosque has the capability to have 10,000 persons in unison. Three domes and two minarets of 151 ft. height glamorize the mosque. An additional 25 smaller minarets ranging between 100 feet to 117 feet high also make an impact on people. What is more, gateway of the mosque happens to be substitute of Buland Darwaza at Fatehpur Sikri.

Without doubt, all these are good and manifest Islamic artistic extravaganza and also architectural excellence. But it would have certainly been better if all ended here and with religious rituals only. A good number of accusations of these mosques do foment at times. Time and again there have been allegations that the majority of mosques in Kolkata are better arsenals than religious shrines.

Whether this is true or not, time will reveal.

Hindu woman raped in Haroa

Hindu baiting in the Indian state of West Bengal is becoming widespread these days and Minakha in 24 Paraganas (North) has turned out to be one the worst affected areas. Even if people are trying to interpret ongoing repressions as part of political animosity following West Bengal Assembly Election 2011, reality is appalling. As per classified sources, Muslims are making use of this uncanny development to eradicate Hindus from the environs.

On May 15, 2011, around 3 am, Khaleq Gaji, age 24 years, entered residence of Ashto Sardar and woke up his wife, Aloka Sardar, aged 40. Khaleq happens to be an infamous Muslim criminal and also TMC (Trinamool Congress) activist in the same Teghoria (village), Kulti, P.S. Haroa in Minakha area and was carrying Hasua (common weapon in rural Bengal used for agricultural jobs) in the fateful night.

Brandishing the weapon he threatened Aloka and raped her. Ravaged Aloka had no other way other than conforming to his demands. When the news became public, Aloka was admitted to the Basirhat Sub-division hospital and underwent a series of medical tests.

There is another important facet to this incident as well. During the last Panchayat election, three years back, houses of a few Hindus, namely Ashto Sardar, Tapan Sardar, Gopal Naskar, HariKamal Haldar, along with others were ransacked by Muslim workers of TMC.

The aforesaid ghastly incident has terrified the entire area of Teghoria village and Hindus are apprehending more dangers in the coming days. Even if police security has been beefed up, Hindus, owing to fear, are planning for exodus.

Is Trinamool’s electoral triumph nemesis of Hindus?

Post-electoral violence in the Indian state of West Bengal is witnessing more horrific developments with the passing of each day. And each incident is having a despicable face of Islamic fundamentalism on top at the same instant. Maybe you are a firm believer in the serenity of Indian scenario but lots of changes have taken place by now. Minakha in 24 Paraganas (North) has witnessed likewise only today.

The incident had its origin in the march of TMC (Trinamool Congress) workers, jovial to celebrate their party’s landslide in the recently concluded state assembly election, at 10.30am in Debitala (village) of Dhuturdaha (surrounding area), P.S. Minakha.

The procession was being led by Sajid Ali, Panchayat head of Dhuturdaha and also local head of TMC, and the moment it reached Debitala Primary School 3-4 bombs were hurled into the school campus. The incident can’t be conceived flippantly as the bombs were thrown to intimidate Hindus in the vicinity, vulnerable to Islamic marauders for years.

Like incidents are happening in other areas too – Muslim criminals are being found to threaten Hindu supporters of CPM only more and more.

Muslims celebrating Trinamool victory oppress Hindus in Basirhat

Elections in any democratic setup happen to be both natural and sequential but that should not victimize commoners or polls would turn into a travesty. With the proclamation of West Bengal Assembly Election 2011, hell has fallen on the hapless Hindu villagers of Baligouri DangaPara, P.S. Minakha, Sub-division: Basirhat, District: 24 Paraganas (North).

Surroundings of the village, dominated by Muslims, went into wild celebration once the results of the West Bengal Assembly Election 2011 (asserting landslide of Trinamool Congress) were announced today itself. And to celebrate the victory, a big procession of TMC (Trinamool Congress) containing no less than 100 Muslims marched in the village’s thoroughfare.

But the Muslim participants had some other design. To make the celebration more jovial the march attacked Hindu villagers of Baligouri DangaPara and destructed their belongings. Frail Hindu villagers had no way other than watching the same from some distance away. Fortunately, since Hindu women took shelter in the brawniest abode of village, they were saved for the time being.

Villagers are apprehending that more attacks can take place by today night. As Muslims are guarding the village, Hindus have not been able to file complaint to the nearby police station yet. Hindus are thinking of exodus for the moment.

Hindus in Usthi tame Muslim ruffians

There is an old saying that thieves do not listen to the counsels of wise individuals and hence, suffer all the time. Surely they can maintain better lives, if the same is done even for once. This old adage is applicable for the Muslim thugs living in and around P.S. Usthi, District: 24 Paraganas (South) in the Indian state of West Bengal, enjoying a steady presence and mounting strength of Hindu Samhati’s ideals and workforce, too. The recent incident goes around Pramatha Halder, a young man driving a motorcycle on 25 April, 2011 during the night. It was darkness as usual but the Muslim youths in the vicinity had other designs also.

They placed a cycle van halfway to offer him a strong resistance and accident of a Hindu man is always a good reason to cheer them up. But the situation proved to be otherwise; Pramatha managed to save himself and braved the thugs (some teens were also involved). All these led to exchange of abusive languages and warnings between the two groups.

Pramatha, on the next early morning, went to the nearby police station to file a complaint. Well, hesitation of the police to act aptly in this regard made him incensed and without delay, Hindu boys and men led by Hindu Samhati workers started demonstrating before the police station and blocking off the main thoroughfare before Dharmatala More in Yarpur. Having no other option police intervened and cautioned a few persons of the adjoining Muslim locality. Muslims got enraged and the extent of their anger was realized when in the same evening a brief altercation between the two communities led to a brawl.

The situation came to a halt with the timely intervention of Hindu Samhati workers. But the fiery mood of HS workers panicked police and administration even. To stop any deterioration of the situation, police called a meeting between the two communities next day.

The meeting was also a good revelation of growing Hindu strength. In the meeting, roughly 25 Muslims appeared but they were stunned by the presence of almost 200 Hindu men already.

Officer in Charge of P.S. Usthi warned the implicated Muslim men along with their guardians and also stated clearly that stringent measures would be adopted against them in any such incident in future.

Hindus came out of the police station victoriously chanting “Jai Sri Ram”.

Mousumi – Newest Prey of Love Jihad

Threat of Love Jihad, salient and silent movement led by Muslim youths across India to lure non-Muslim girls to Islam through feigning love, has reached the shores of Indian state of West Bengal too. With the passing of each day, it is becoming a matter of greater concern and for the moment, it’s victim is Mousumi Ghosh of 17 years age, daughter of Gostho Ghosh, resident of Village: Tangra, P.S. Gaighata, District: 24 Paraganas (North).

The culprit, in this regard, is Faja Mandal of 18 years, son of Saleman Mandal, resident of adjoining Village: Rampur, P.S. Gaighata. Both happen to be students of nearby Rajapur High School and while Mousumi happens to be a student of Madhyamik (Secondary Examination), Faja is a student of Uccha Madhyamik (Higher Secondary Examination).

On the fateful day, Mousumi couldn’t be traced even after lots of searches and her family members even went to the house of Sukanya, she was supposed to go to have class notes. But all were in vain; surrounding developments proved that she was tempted and forced to run away by Faja.

Mousumi’s family reported the incident to the nearby police station (488 dtd. 09/04/11) and the Case no. is 461. The family is waiting in earnest yet to have any evidence of Mousumi’s whereabouts. Even if the family is leaving no stone unturned to find her out, disinclination of the administration and animosity of Muslim locality have turned out to be the greatest obstacle.
