Communalization of politics will rape Bengal only
There has been lots of hue and cry from people against the calamitous generosity of Didi on Imams across the state (followed by Muazzins) but the juggernaut of ruling clique in Bengal, to strengthen the Islamic vote bank and (thus) secure its prolonged existence in the corridors of power, is unabated and the onset of allowances to Imams in the district of Malda proves it best.

Each Imam was given allowance of one-and-a-half-month (starting from April, 2012) amounting to Rs. 3, 719.
Without a shred of doubt, the newly-founded tradition will go on vigorously and strengthen with each month it passes.

also – new governments are not (commonly) found to scrub decisions of earlier
governments. And surely no party in India Bengal, in
the following days, will dare to rescind Imam allowance – all have got to

Thus begins a new journey, weird (in every capacity) in the political culture of
August 15, 1947 thus far), leading to the utter communalization of its political
What’s if Hindus remain indignant? Who does care for them? Let them go for personal salvation and sing hymns in temples; beggars are not allowed to address, not to mention their own aspirations or agonies.
