Kali Temple looted, desecrated in Shantipur

Hindu witness to incident brutally murdered  

Is history repeating itself in Bengal? It was the dark days of 1940s (days prior to the partition of then undivided Bengal in 1947) when Hindu temples became the foremost targets of Islamists and the whipping endorsement of then Muslim League bolstered the perennial anti-Hindu odium only.

The present state of affairs is just the same; Hindu temples across the Indian state of Bengal are turning out to be primary targets of Islamic vandalism and the situation is such that not a day passes when the desecration of a Hindu temple goes unheard.  

The highly revered Kali Temple located at Fuliapara Krittibas (Ramayana was written in Bengali here by the mediaeval poet Krittibas Ojha), P.S. Shantipur, District: Nadia has turned into the latest target. On April 25, 2012 (in the early morning) the Temple was attacked by a packed of assailants. Not the temple was looted and desecrated only but Sri Bijoy Ghosh, who did recognize the assailants, was brutally murdered also. The whole area is tensed as a result and is apprehending more such vicious attacks in the coming days.

It is worthwhile to mention, Hindu temples in and around Shantipur (aided by weird disinclination of administration to adopt tough measures against culprits) have become completely vulnerable to mounting divisive activities of Islamists.
