Pather Dabi is a humble village in the realm of P.S. Hingalganj, Subdivision: Basirhat, District: 24 Paraganas (North) and remains Hindu-dominated up to now as well. But this reality has failed to prevent Muslim strong-armers even; 10-15 Muslim households living there coupled with their external supporters rule the roost at the moment.
The Hindu-majority village has witnessed cow slaughter for two successive years – 2011 and 2012. However, Hindus in the village built up a massive defence against cow slaughter during last Eid in 2012 and waged the combat against both Muslim malefactors and their administrative bosses for days. But Muslim culprits didn’t stay silent; scores of Hindu houses were destructed in reply while the administration preferred to retain a strange silence.
Pather Dabi is apprehensive of untoward developments in this year too; each and every struggle intensifies Hindu confidence. Hindus refuse to leave a single post in the ensuing struggles.
