There is no need to avow anymore that Islamic fundamentalism is on the rise in the length and breadth of the Indian state of
Bengal; lots of areas are feeling the heat of the same surge. Sastitala, an obscure and remote village, positioned in P.S. Joynagar, District: 24 Paraganas (South) is one of such many ones at this point in time.
The village, reeling under such a violent pressure, was in need of a defiant, efficacious and mannish Hindu leadership and to get inspiration to wage a strong defence struggle against such threats (virtually) youths of the village invited Sri Tapan Ghosh, president, Hindu Samhati, on January 17, 2011.
Without a shred of doubt, strong charisma and fiery speech of Sri Ghosh has propelled the villagers to go on with their desperate struggles against Islamic Jihad, backed by high-handedness of local administration, to a large extent.
