All to have namaz in school!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is namaz a part of school curriculum?
Muslim school students have to be provided namaz period (whether in school or elsewhere) and if the Hindu teacher attempts to discipline them for failing to return within the stipulated period, he/she must be thrashed severely – the latest Islamic diktat is getting common ever more in schools across Bengal. On July 31, 2012, Dhapdhapi High School (co-ed Higher Secondary school), P.S. – Baruipur, District – 24 Parganas (South), located at Dhapdhapi Bazar near Dakshineswar temple, witnessed the same ghastly incident.
According to locals, this incident at the behest of Islamic mob running amok on the very day happens to be the first one in annals of this antediluvian school (ever since 1857).
What led to this untoward development? Before anything, it must be considered that Muslim students make 50% of the student population in Dhapdhapi High School and hence, they are known to get an edge in almost each aspect. With the fast changing demography, the school, established by Hindus in 1857, has also changed a great deal in all these years.
It has been learnt, on July 31 Muslim students of Class XI demanded rooms from school authority to offer namaz within school premises. Due to the unavailability of such a room, concerned students were given a free period of 30 minutes to attend the nearby mosque, offer namaz and return to school. Even if Mr. Subhendu Biswas, was reluctant and didn’t approve it, Muslims students got out.
At 3.30 pm, a Muslim student came back (the stipulated period was over by then) and tried to enter the class. Teacher, Hindu by religion, asked him not to enter the room, reprimanded him also for arriving late. The student could not digest the insult (?), went to almost each class room along with his fellow students and invoked other Muslim students to boycott classes immediately.
Witnessing the fast deteriorating situation, school management had no other option except to drive the riotous Muslim students out. But it was not the end; culpable Muslim students went back to their locality and a mob of above 2, 000 Islamists aggressed the school and ravaged it before long. Both the Head Master and Secretary of the school, Mr. Subhendu Biswas and Mr. Tapan Kumar Mandal, were beaten mercilessly. Not a single other person including the gatekeeper was spared.
It is worthwhile to mention, staff of Dhapdhapi High School happens to be 30 (teaching + non-teaching) and it includes a Muslim teacher too. But he was absent on the fateful day making Hindus in the locality smell a rat. According to them, such a nefarious design was hatched before and the Muslim teacher was absent as part of strategy. What do they assert more, the assault on school is the fallout of a grievous design to take hold of the vicinity and establish an Islamic supremacy all in all.
The situation was far from over still; following the evening namaz, hundreds of Islamists gathered once more and threatened the school management committee with dire consequences. Even if higher officials of police and administration including SDO, BDO and Officer-in-Charge of P.S. – Baruipur visited the spot later on, they failed to rein in the situation utterly.
Tension reigns supreme yet; the school has been closed for an indefinite period.
The development has angered Hindus in the locality highly; a distinct team of Hindu Samhati – Baruipur Block (Kumarhat Unit) – has already visited the school and assured the staff there of all possible assistances.
