Hindus stop construction of illegal mosque in Kolkata Leather Complex

Gangapur, a village alongside the famed Kolkata Leather Complex under the jurisdiction of the Kolkata Leather Complex Police Station within 24 Paraganas (South) district, remained witness to a communal fracas on December 24, 2013 due to bids of fortifying an illegal mosque in the environs. It has been learnt, a few people (belonging to Muslim community) appeared in the land sharing an ancient temple of Banadevi surprisingly and without consulting anyone, they commenced to build up a new structure – later found as an illicit mosque. The news was enough to both unnerve and enrage local Hindus as they knew that they would have to pay a high price for this ultimately.

It is worth mentioning, the ancient temple exists within 100 meters of the disputed and illegal structure; Hindus worship at the temple regularly and the Banadevi fair is also organized there annually.  As a result, the effort behind this new mosque was deemed as evil by local Hindus. They also realized that completion of the same would endanger Hindu locality and its way of life. And this new crisis would not be limited to any jolt only. On the word of a villager (on condition of anonymity), “even If Hindus have no problem with any new mosque, past experiences are enough to ascertain that any such development would call Hindus, their religious beliefs and also worships a halt. And administration supports these evil designers only.” 

As there was no other option for a peaceful resolution, local Hindus, led by Hindu Samhati, organized a mass resistance to the shady project leading to its termination finally.

Uttar Pradesh becomes perfect secular through new Muslim DGP

What is the best way to woo Muslims and get identified as a true secular in a state like Uttar Pradesh? There are, indeed, various ways but to get back Muslim support, especially after vicious Muzaffarnagar riots in 2013, the best way is to assign a Muslim police official or administrator to the topmost post of the state administration. And the Akhilesh Yadav government has followed this route by naming Rizwan Ahmed as the first Muslim Director General Police of the state. Despite the fact that the riot despoiled both Hindu and Muslim communities simultaneously, weird secularism prevailing India opts for designating a Muslim police official only. In this case, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Samajwadi Party supremo, call the shots finally.

The report on rediff.com also states that “Evidently, Mulayam’s Final Decision Is Understood To Have Been Influenced By His Desperation To Woo Back Muslims, Who Were Appearing To Be Terribly Disillusioned With The Ruling SP Because Of The Government’s Poor Handling Of The Muzaffarnagar Riots.”

Is there anyone to distrust secular credentials of Uttar Pradesh now? Everyone fears his own life. Isn't it?

Shahriar Kabir’s documentary evidences truest, cruelest nature of Islamic fundamentalism

“The Ultimate Jihad” – latest documentary of Shahriar Kabir, noted journalist, filmmaker, human rights activist from Bangladesh and also leader of anti-fundamentalism struggle, has evoked a good response from the audience in Kolkata who witnessed it on Saturday, December 21. Terming the rough treatment of Debjani Khobragade, Indian diplomat stationed in the United States, of late by the indigenous governance there as a novel American endeavor to caution India, Shahriar Kabir stated that it was the fallout of a bitter disagreement between India and United States over the nature of Islamic fundamentalism in the Indian subcontinent. United States is making all efforts to strengthen Jamaat as the spokesperson of “soft religious bigotry” against the all-encompassing fundamentalism championed by Talibans – a notion refuted by India, known to bear burnt of Islamic terrorist attacks always.

Middle-aged Hindu housewife raped in Hariharpara, Murshidabad

Now it’s the time for the district of Murshidabad to witness another spate of rape; a middle-aged Hindu housewife has been raped within an ambulance by its driver. The gruesome incident took place in the dead of night on December 27, 2013 at the field of Benepura under the jurisdiction of the police station of Hariharpara in the district of Murshidabad.

It has come to knowledge, the victim or middle-aged housewife lives in the village of Choana and her daughter Mrs. Ruma Sarkar was shifted to Hariharpara Block Health Center owing to acute labor pain on last Friday. Ruma was not alone; she was joined by her mother to the local hospital in an ambulance driven by Habib Sheikh. The admission took hours scaring Ruma’s mother a lot as she had no option except to return to her own residence in Choana.  However, Habib assured that he would personally escort her to the residence. But (while returning) the ambulance was driven to Benepura through Swaruppur; the vehicle reached the field of Benepura finally and Habib raped her. He also tired to flee but once he was assured that this vicious event would not be narrated to others, Habib drove Ruma’s mother to her residence. But she informed neighbors of the same in wee hours and they accompanied her to the police station of Hariharpara to file an FIR against Habib Sheikh, resident of the village of Borkhali under the jurisdiction of same police station.   

Habib was arrested from the hospital’s courtyard later on. The ambulance has also been confined while the victim has been sent for medical examination. Local people are yet to recover from this shock and are demanding strictest punishment of Habib Sheikh.

Sandeshkhali : Hindu Arrested for Hosting Hindu Samhati Meeting; Women Lathicharged for Protesting Arrest !

December, 2013
District: North 24 Parganas;
Police Station: Sandeshkhali;
Village: Mekuakhali Bhuiyanpara
In the middle of 2013, several Hindu members of the infamous Sandeshkhali area don Shahjahan Sheikh's gang deserted him. Reason ?  Amiya Bhuiyan and his friends left the criminal group as they grew unhappy with the persecution meted out to Hindus in the locality.  Recently, only Hindus and Hindu owned businesses were being targeted exclusively by Sheikh. As an example, his men would poison and destroy Hindu owned fish ponds, terrorize the Hindu owners, chase them out, and then sell only to Muslims. Therefore, the Hindu gang members felt that the Muslim gangster was disenfranchising Hindus only, and benefiting the Muslims in the area, and not religiously neutral, and this led to an exodus by Hindus from the group.
On 16th December 2013, a Hindu Samhati team visited Mekuakhali Bhuiyanpara village accompanied by Dilip Mehta, Hindu activist and leader of Hindu Mahasabha of America.  Mr. Mehta is from the USA and is an active Hindu Samhati supporter. That very night, at 11 PM, Amiya Bhuiya was arrested by the Sandeshkhali police, reason given was old cases against him. The local Hindus however, feel that the real reason for his arrest was Mr Bhuiyan arranging and holding Hindu Samhati program in the said village.
On 17th morning around 9:30 AM, near Rajbari area of Sandeskhali Police Station, at the Basanti Highway, a few thousand Hindus, including a large female contingent,  held a peaceful demonstration. This was in protest of the unreasonable arrest of Amiya Bhuiyan the night before. At that time, a huge police force accompanied by Basirhat sub divisional police officer, Abhijit Banerjee confronted the protesters using lathi charge, etc. The Hindus were hit with lathi sticks by the police, including the Hindu women.  Incidentally, there were no female police present in the charge. Eleven persons were arrested, seven were women.  
A Hindu woman protester named Rumpa Bhuiyan was seriously injured by the police lathi charge assault. She was admitted in Minakha government hospital. No medical report was given to any of the Hindu victims (at the orders of the Muslim pressured administration and police). Hindu Samhati activists took the victims to Rajbari medical college, and they were given primary medical care there.  
This is a a serious human rights offense by West Bengal police. Example of Lathi charge assault on females by  male police officers. 
The Hindu residents of Sandeshkhali area are totally shocked and disturbed at this attitude of the local police and administration and the step motherly behavior of the West Bengal government towards the Hindus.
On 20th Dec 2013 Hindu Samhati legal team got bail for Amiya Bhuiyan and he was released by Basirhat lower court.

Hindu Samhati – to celebrate 150 th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda

Pakistan's State of Denial

Whatever may be the intensity of atrocities perpetrated by the Pakistani Army and governance on Bengalis in 1971 at East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), Pakistani polity remains unapologetic yet and it was found best when the National Assembly in Pakistan passed a resolution condemning the hanging of Abdul Quader Molla (or the Butcher of Mirpur), tried, sentenced to death by the International Crimes Tribunal in Bangladesh and hence executed. The grief in the Islamic world following the hanging remains unique – while Chaudhury Nisar Ali Khan (current Interior Minister in Pakistan) termed the execution of this infamous leader of Jamaat-e-Islami in Bangladesh as a “judicial murder”, Imran Khan, globally acclaimed cricketer and also chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), called Molla as innocent and charges against him as fabricated.

Other Islamic institutions are not lagging as well. Muslim Council of Britain termed the entire development as "a sad day for Bangladesh and sad day for democracy and justice. The trial process of Abdul Quader Molla was fraught with flaws and the international community including the UN and all respected Human Rights organizations world over strongly criticized the trial as unfair, biased and politically driven." Islamic Circle of North America termed it as a “political murder and a dark day of justice.”

Moreover, Saudi gazette, prize English-language newspaper published from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, published an article on December 18, 2013 titled “Execution of Abdul Quader Mullah after an unjust trial.”

It is worthwhile to mention that Quader Molla, apart from being directly involved to the genocide of Bengalis in both Shialbari and Rupnagar areas of Mirpur during the war, organized local non-Bengali people of Manipur, Sheorapara, Kazipara areas of Mirpur into armed groups to go on with the brutal killing and Hindus remained their first and foremost target.

Has the last phase of racial extermination of Hindus in Bangladesh begun?

The political impasse in Bangladesh is worsening with each hour it passes and the trigger-happy reaction of Jamaat and its Islamist accomplices following Qader Mullah’s execution is virtually holding the entire country to ransom. Exploiting the apparent political indisposition of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (known for hobnobbing with radical and pro-Pakistan Islamic groups in the country recurrently), Islamists are leaving no stone unturned to turn the entire country to a complete hell, as per fresh reports that are coming in. While Awami League workers are also being attacked by Jamaat and Islai Chatrashibir cadres, religious minority communities, especially Hindus, remain their first and foremost target. The statement of Makbul Ahmed, well-known leader of Jamaat-e-Islami, is worth mentioning in this context. In a press statement issued on late Thursday he stated "people would take revenge on this killing by establishing Islam in Bangladesh, which is stained with the blood of Abdul Quader Mollah" and the vengeance by now has extended from the streets of Dhaka to the agrarian fields of Rajshahi,  Chapai Nawabganj, Khulna, Noakhali, Satkhira, Jessore and others. 

If the saga of Hindu persecution in Satkhira is considered, situation there is out of control and after execution of Qader Mullah or “Butcher of Mirpur”, nearly 60 residences of Hindus along with their business enterprises have been razed to the ground. Houses of Gopal Ghoshal, Tapas Acharya, Naba Kumar Mandal, Milan Biswas, Dulal Sadhu, Samir Sarkar, Madan Sadhu, Nirmal Sadhu, Ganesh Karmakar, in the village of Agardanri within the sub-district of Kalaroa, have been burnt down turning them into paupers overnight.   In the sub-district of Debhata, shop of Lablu Biswas at Gazirhat, house of Subhas Ghosh and Sarat Ghosh at Debisahar have been destructed and set to fire.   On last Thursday, at 1 am, residence of Nirmal Chandra, local Awami League leader inhabiting the village of Murarikati within the sub-district of Kalaroa, was burnt down by Muslim zealots of Islami Chatrashibir. Damodar temple was also vandalized and destructed.

It has also come to knowledge, 4 cars have been set to fire while almost 25 vehicles were torched at Panchabati of Fatulla in Narayangunj. The area is known to have a dense Hindu population. Districts of Nilphamari, Coxbazar and Khulna have also witnessed recurrent attacks on Hindus, desecration and despoliation of their religious institutions and residences respectively.  Kachari Bazaar, having a sizable Hindu population and under Laxmichap Union in the district headquarter of Nilphamari, remained witness to vandalism by cadres of Jamaat and other radical factions. Thanks to the absence of any police official, Muslim crooks raided almost each shop in the market, looted and at last, set fire to 50 shops owned by Hindus. Beltali Bazaar of the same union also bore the brunt of such barbarism – apart from destruction 15 shops owned by Hindus, residence of Shyamcharan Roy, Mukti Joddha and also leader of Awami League, was burnt down. In Sirajganj, supporters of Jamaat-Shibir vandalized a venerated and Holy Deity at a Hindu temple at Sayedabad union.

 What is being written here is just tip of the iceberg or even less than it as more such disturbing news are coming from other districts as well. Even if Hindus have also started to resist Islamic attackers at various places, there is the need of more. This is the first time after 1971 when the need to form barricade in each Hindu area is being felt so strongly.  

Even if Sheikh Hasina warned Muslim zealots in the rally marking the 42nd anniversary of the Martyred Intellectuals Day on December 14 by stating "We have shown enough patience. We will not tolerate anymore. People of the country know how to reply these atrocities, we (government) also know how to respond to, control you," it has failed to satisfy aggrieved Hindus, apprehending current events as the last phase of racial extermination of theirs in the country. Tens of hundreds of them are already on the move but do not know where to go finally as India has sealed its border with Bangladesh already.

Hindu Samhati’s Protest March against Hindu Persecution in Bangladesh unfolds a new chapter of Struggle

Unfolding a new chapter in the history of West Bengal, Hindu Samhati, to express its abhorrence against the ongoing Hindu persecution in Bangladesh and also to convey its solidarity to minority Hindus there, brought out a massive protest march in the town of Bangaon in North 24 Paraganas district, on December 10, 2013. The demonstration which commenced its headway from Batar More (crossing) in the noon was joined by Hindus in throngs and while the march went on, hundreds of Hindus were witnessed (on both sides of the thoroughfare) to cheer it. Some were even found to term Hindu Samhati’s endeavor as opportune and as the only way to make the nonchalant, obtuse Indian governance conscious of the cruel reality on the other side of the border and how any more silence may destabilize the integrity and also economy of India.  It is worth to mention, hundreds of Hindu families, as per fresh reports, have already entered the Indian mainland for security following the violent clashes back home. And this is nothing new; it is no secret whenever there is any resistance from liberals or resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism in Bangladesh, Hindus turn into the worst casualty.    

Press and media reports from Bangladesh have already depicted how Hindus have become the sole target of Islamic oppression yet again and some of the most revered columnists there have also termed this onslaught of Islamists as the cruelest effort (in the recorded history) to exterminate Hindus racially. Now the question remains whether India is aware of its outcome or whether she hopes to deal with Bangladesh unflappably for a better future in the Indian subcontinent.

The protest march was addressed by leaders of Hindu Samhati who were found to state without qualm how this crisis is endangering the Hindu civilization in the Indian subcontinent and also the fact that any failure to halt  this will lead to an arrant disaster only. The protest march tried to move towards the Indo-Bangladesh international border but was stopped by the local administration halfway.

Minority people are diminishing in Bangladesh

The number of minority people in Bangladesh is declining fast and as per the census in 2011, the number of Hindus has decreased by 24%. Officials of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics stated (on condition of anonymity), the number of Hindus may decline more in the next census. If facts of census are analyzed, in 1901 Hindus comprised 33% of the entire population in the territory shaping contemporary Bangladesh. The first census of independent Bangladesh in 1971 revealed that Hindus represented 13% of the entire populace and by 2001 it came down to 9.3%. However, at the same time, there has not been significant reduction of Buddhists, Christians and other religious minority groups. On the other hand, the number of Muslims has increased exponentially.

Hindu Shrine attacked in Gagrabari, S 24 Parganas; police arrests the victim along with the aggressors

If you thought Tarapith was the only place which came under jihadi attack today, think again. Be it popular Hindu religious places like Tarapith in the district of Birbhum or the remote village of Gagrabari under Kanthalberia panchayat in South 24 Parganas district, Hindus are often at the receiving end Relentless attacks in West Bengal. There used to be a Hindu temple consecrated to Sheetala Mata deity in Gagrabari village of Basanti police station. As the property of the temple was being encroached upon by local Muslims, apprehensive Hindus put a fence around the area. On 27th November, a Muslim named Hamid Poddar trespassed into the area of the temple and started making haystacks along with his sons and other members of his community. 

Hindus vehemently opposed their actions and asked them to leave the premises at once but Hamid Poddar and his sons Monirul Sardar and Nazir Sardar not only refused to leave quietly but attacked the Hindu protesters accompanied by Nabir Ali Sardar (son of Aljubbar Sardar), Ujir Ali, Sabir Ali Mollah and few others. 

The Hindu residents - among them, Biplab Santra (son of Bishwanath Santra), Sanjay Jana (son of Gour Jana), Sadhan Maity (son of Late Panchu Maity), Paritosh Santra (son of Laxman Santra), Ramkrishna Adhikary (son of Radhanath Adhikary) along with a lady Putul Adhikari were injured in the attack. Biplab Santra received a terrible blow on his head that resulted in skull fracture. Even though it appears that the incident was instigated by the trespassing of Hamid and his companions, police arrested 6 Hindus along with 4 Muslims. Biplab Santra who had a serious injury was not even offered any medical assistance but was kept behind the bar. At the time of reporting, Biplab has been released by the police but Paritosh is still under custody along with 3 other members from the attacking Muslim community.

Tarapith – no more in safe custody

As per reports to the news desk of Hindu Samhati, serious clashes broke out between Hindus and Muslims at Tarapith in Birbhum, renowned Hindu pilgrimage across the globe, on 27 th November. Reportedly, the scuffle initiated once a few Muslim youths living in neighboring Fulir Gaon tried to disrupt the traditional Kartick Puja held behind the Tarapith temple at this time every year. To stave off any further deterioration, organizers of the Puja along with others built up a firm resistance. However, it turned to be abortive ultimately as the Muslim youths retreated to their own village of Fakirpara but they came back soon and with more street fighters. The hotspot calmed down due to the efforts of local police and to prevent any such development again, a large contingent of police personnel was deployed.  Mutual distrust and simmering tension prevail the environs.

Communal hostility over fishery in Sandeshkhali, woman assaulted but saved by heroic efforts of husband

Achintya Bhowmik and his wife Sujata Bhowmik own a fishery conjointly in the village of Bermojur Hatkhola under the jurisdiction of Sandeshkhali police station in the district of South 24 Paraganas and the couple is known as amiable in the environs. However, both their amiability and economic strength became eyesore to a few local gangsters and with the end to seize the entire property from the couple, the same felons attacked the fishery at 2 am on November 5, 2013. It has been learnt, culprits including Hasanur Ghazi (son of Kousar Ghazi), Motalef Ghazi (son of Jubbar Ghazi), Rezaul Ghazai (son of Rezzaq Ghazi), Habibullla Sheikh (son of Kasem Sheikh), Salauddin Ghazi (son of Yakub Ghazi living in Bermojur Madrasapur) entered the tract silently first and asked Achintya to come out from the makeshift room used by the couple to guard the piscary.  Terming them as petty businessman, Sujata asked them to collect fish and go away. But Hasanur was not in a mood to be cowed and hence, he asked Achintya once more to come out. Sujata, at this time, stated that Achintya was not in the room and taking it as the best opportunity, the group barged into the room or the couple’s small shelter.

 The gang tried to strip and rape Sujata first. To save themselves, Achintya also counterstriked Hasanur and soon, both of them fell into the fishery. Sensing danger three culprits fled but it was Motalef who attacked the couple with a sharp knife and Sujata was injured viciously. In due course, Achintya overpowered Hasanur and fastened both of his hands with a saree of Sujata that Hasanur and his henchmen tried to strip her of. Later on, in the morning, Achintya brought Hasanur to the market where the gangster was thrashed by people en masse. Hasanur Ghazi has been admitted to a hospital in Kolkata and as per latest information, his condition seems to be critical. An FIR was filed against Achintya Bhowmik and a few others by local Muslims – First Information Report No. 495/13 dated 07/11/2013 under sections 341/325/307/34 Indian Penal Code. Achintya also lodged an First Information Report against the aforesaid members of the gang – First Information Report No. 494/13 dated 07/11/2013 under sections 474/325/307/34 Indian Penal Code. However, no criminal has been arrested yet.

Bangladesh : Genocide Now, Taliban Soon

Bangladesh is on the road to becoming another Afghanistan, fulfilling the clearly stated desires of jihadists and fundamentalists, according to Bangladeshis who have fled their homeland.
Imams describe women as filth and demand that they cover themselves. They accuse exploited female garment workers of prostitution when they are forced to work late into the night to earn a living. Schoolchildren have to dress in Islamic garb, even if they are not Muslims. Workers are discriminated against if they are other than Muslim. Land grabs by Muslims of property owned by minorities occur all the time -- with impunity. Atheist bloggers are beaten and even killed for "insulting Islam," and all this under the supposedly secular Awami League administration.

The Hindu empire once stretched from Afghanistan to Indonesia, before the Muslim invasions whittled it down. According to Dr. Sachi Dastidar, professor of politics at the State University of New York at Old Westbury, Long Island, forty-nine million Hindus are missing from the Bangladesh census over the period of 1947 to 2001. At the time of the partition of India in 1947, Hindus comprised thirty-one percent of the population of Bangladesh. The population of Hindus in Bangladesh is now down to a mere nine percent. The numbers are shrinking very fast due to coerced conversions; the kidnapping of girls and women, as well as rapes followed by murder; forced flight -- and genocidal massacres.

In the near future, all the non-Muslims may be "ethnically cleansed" from Bangladesh. The world will have lost one more part of the globe to fundamentalists and gained one more staging ground for new attacks on the West.

The minority population in Bangladesh lives under constant fear of loss of life and property, especially in the countryside, where Muslim transgressions more easily escape being publicized.

Imagine this: You are a peasant farmer living in a thatched house in a remote area. You and your brother try to keep a vigil during the night, expecting another raid, since there have been frequent attacks on your neighbors. Men with torches come at three in the morning and set fire to your house, after dragging out your wife and two daughters, ages nine and thirteen. You must fight alone, because your brother was mutilated by the same men in a previous raid. All his fingers were cut off, and his right leg was amputated at the hip so that he would suffer lifelong humiliation as well as disability.

You are beaten and bound, forced to watch the gang-rapes of your wife and daughters. Your house and all your possessions are burned beyond use.

Your wife and daughters are afraid to file a complaint with the police, because they know that the police usually do not prosecute the attackers -- and they may even turn on the victims. (All this, to say nothing of having to bear the shame of being sexually violated.) You have talked with your neighbors about mounting a stronger defense against the frequent attacks, but all of you feel demoralized, knowing that scores or even hundreds of armed men have descended on others like you to punish you for having the temerity to fight back.

You consider fleeing with your family but do not want to give up the land that has belonged to your ancestors for hundreds of years. But if you stay on your land, which is the only life you know, you may very well be killed.

Such is life today in Bangladesh for Hindus, as well as for all the other minorities: Buddhists, Christians, atheists, and animists. The details of this sketch are all too real. They were culled from photos and verbal descriptions of the persecution of the minorities compiled by a human rights organization of Bangladeshi Americans, the Bangladesh Hindu Buddhist Christian Unity Council.

The Bangladesh Unity Council will meet on November 20, 2013 in Washington D.C. with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Hopefully this time they will see results, since the same group has been meeting with other U.S. officials since 1999 without any sign of improvement.

An immediate concern is the upcoming national elections in Bangladesh, because in this aspiring democracy, ironically, elections bring fresh new pogroms against the minorities.

This is not to say that every Muslim in this Muslim-majority country participates in or accepts these atrocities. On the contrary, there are Muslim intellectuals who write frequent articles decrying their country's slide toward sharia and jihad.

The international press, however, has barely noticed Bangladesh's descent into fundamentalist hell, and the threat it poses to world security.

Worldwide attention and political intervention may be able to help slow down this disaster. But that takes time. Most immediately, however, support is needed to stop the ongoing genocide. To meet immediate needs for survival, non-violent physical assistance to protect endangered communities must be considered.

Nisha Hari goes missing with Mohammed Imran without knowledge of her parents in Hatiara, Kolkata

Nisha Hari is 16 years’ old daughter of Jitendra Hari and a student of Ananda Sundari Vidyalaya at Deshbandhunagar in Baguiati. She is a resident of Dakshin Math Subhaspalli in Hatiara under the jurisdiction of New Town police station in North 24 Parganas and is known as a modest girl in the vicinity. She went to the school on 8th October and had not returned to her home. The worried family was aghast over the absence of their daughter but left no stone unturned searching for her in all directions but no success has been attained. It has been learnt after lots of inquiries that Nisha has purportedly eloped with Mohammed Imran who is middle-aged and also the father of two children. Imran is the son of Mohammed Islam and living in Hatiara Ghuni and is a cab driver by profession. Local people consider Imran to be highly proficient in enticing girls and exploiting them thereafter. It appears that Nisha is his latest victim.  Albeit Nisha’s father went to the police station of Baguiati on 9th October with a few people, they had to remain content through filing a general diary No. 536 dated 09/10/2013. It appears that an important reason for police inaction is that the Sub-Inspector at the police station due to Abdul Kalam had tried his best to protect Mohammed Imran from the law. Nevertheless, he failed ultimately as locals went the police station in throngs and forced the police to file a First Information Report (FIR number 520/13 dated 09/10/2013 under sections 363 and 366 of Indian Penal Code). Hindu Samhati activists had phoned the Block Development Officer (BDO) of Rajarhat and thanks to his assistance, they met Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (ADCP – Airport Branch) along with Jitendra Hari who has assured them of all possible help. The appalled family is having sleepless nights at the moment in search of their beloved daughter.

Minor girl goes missing from Shantipur, Nadia, FIR filed against suspect Shoaib Ali

Kaberi Kundu, 16-year old student of Saratkumar High School and living in Ward number 11 of Dokantala Shantipur under the jurisdiction of police station of Shantipur in the district of Nadia went missing on 24 th October and she has not returned to her residence yet. It has come to knowledge, Kaberi went to private tuition at 7 am on the same day and was kidnapped midway by Shoaib Ali. Shoaib is of 30 years old; he is the son of late Shamser Ali and lives in Ward number 12 within Durgatala Shantipur under the jurisdiction of same police station. Kaberi’s father and relatives lodged a general diary number 1293 on 24 th October but searching for her went on for the next three days. Once complicity of Shoaib Ali in the case was confirmed, the aghast family filed a First Information Report against him in the Shantipur police station on October 27 – First Information Report number 646/13 dated 27.10.2013.

Kaberi’s father received phone calls on both 28 th and 29 th October from a person who introduced himself as Abdul Karim Sheikh, a resident of Jangipur in Murshidabad and also the brother-in-law of Shoaib. He promised to return Kaberi on 29 th October within 11 am. Despite this was informed to the Shantipur police station, no approach has been adopted by the administration to find Kaberi out. 

The role of Partha Roy who is Officer-In-Charge of Shantipur police station seems to be diabolical. To conceal his own inactivity as regards saving Kaberi from the clutch of kidnappers, especially Shoaib Ali, he has been found busy to make use of the canard of 'communalism'. Reportedly, he has advised a telephoner, anxious to know of Kaberi’s whereabouts, not to disturb him anymore since the girl’s father has no interest in recovering her. He said on record that 'it creates communal tension'. Hence the matter should be left out."

"SHUBHA DEEPAWALI" --- Deepawali Message From Tapan Ghosh To All Brothers And Sisters Across The Hindu Diaspora

"Every Hindu Must Take an Oath on This Sacred Occasion to Fight Against The Asuras (Jehadi Demons) of Today." ..
Tapan Ghosh..., President of Hindu Samhati 



On the auspicious occasion of Deepawali, celebrating the home coming of Sri Ram and the slaying of the demon Narakasura by Sri Krishna, I convey my best wishes to all on behalf of Hindu Samhati.

On this hallowed occasion marking the TRIUMPH of Sacred over Evil, I have but one Prayer. I pray that all Hindus whose forefathers have been driven out of their homes by the Islamic aggressors from Afghanistan to Bangladesh, Kashmir to Assam or from any other part of Akhand Bharat, observe this day by taking a vow. Let us solemnly resolve that one day they will return to their ancestral home after defeating the Jihadi Ravanas of Kali Yuga - just like Sri Ram eliminated Ravan of Treta Yug and just like Sri Krishna eliminated the demon Narakasura of Dwapar Yug.

From Kamakhya to Dhakeshwari, From Kalighat to Kanyakumari, From Hinglaj to Durgiana, One Billion Hindus will be celebrating Deepawali by worshipping Devi Matrika (the Mother-Goddess). Let us all pray to Bhavatarini, the redeemer of the world, to protect the homelands of the Hindus from devastation, to save the honor of our women and provide strength to our youth. Let Shakti Devi provide us the courage to fight back against persecution.

We beseech Maha Kali for her invincible power and blessings so that we too can perform the same sacred duty she did while slaying the demon Rakta-beeja. We are yet to get justice in the hallowed grounds of Ramjanmabhoomi in Ayodhya. We have no movements to wrest full control over the most venerable temples at Mathura and Kashi, or the thousands of other Hindu pilgrimage sites that either remain desecrated or are under the control of the Jihadis. Let us pray on this sacred day to obtain justice for reclaiming these holy places.

Every Hindu Must Take an Oath on This Sacred Occasion to Fight Against the Asuras (Jehadi Demons) of Today.

And so we shall pray together to the Mother Goddess…

”Om asatoma sat gamaya, tamaso ma jyotir gamaya, mrityorma amritam gamayo”

Lead us from Falsehood to Truth
Lead us from Darkness to Light
Lead us from Death to Immortality

Vande Mataram

Tapan Ghosh
President, Hindu Samhati

Hindus waging desperate struggles in Basanti, Sandeshkhali

The following is a heartrending narrative of the condition of Hindus inhabiting No. 7, No. 9, No. 10 and No. 11 Kumrakhali villages under the jurisdiction of police station of Basanti in South 24 Paraganas district. The fierce disorder now prevailing in these villages commenced on October 16 on the day of Bakri Id/Eid ul-Adha when a handful of Muslim youths forcefully closed down shops in Rampur Bazar under the authority of police station of Sandeshkhali. As the majority of shops there are owned by Hindus such an abrupt diktat angered them a lot. While they tried their best to convince the Muslim youths of the problems of shutting down shops and the consequent financial losses, nothing could be achieved. Meanwhile, the tension reached Sanfuipara in No. 9 Kumrakhali village and an altercation ensued between the Hindu and Muslim youths. The situation could have been checked but the attack on local and venerated Panchanan Thakur temple spoiled the remaining chances. Hindus reacted strongly and to stop them several Muslim thugs fired shots injuring several Hindu youths including Khagen Dolui.

Soumen Mandal, following the short fight, was approaching his residence in No. 7 Kumrakhali village in a motorbike. He was not alone; Khagen Dolui was also with him. Suddenly, they were attacked by Muslim youths in throngs at Pukurpar. The attack proved to be vicious enough; not only his bike was destroyed but both of them were badly thrashed. While severely harmed Khagen fled to No. 9 Kumrakhali village, Soumen fled to No. 7 Kumrakhali village to save HIS life. What followed next was nothing save for a desperate struggle of Hindus to save their own existence there.  

But the situation refuses to end here. Thanks to political pressure to have Muslim votes, police has arrested 14 Hindus in two cases albeit their involvement remains doubtful. While in one case 31 Hindus have been accused in the FIR, the other case involves 3. Goutam Roy, reputed activist of Hindu Samhati from No. 7 Kumrakhali village has already been arrested by a team from the police station in Basanti. He, at the moment, is confined in the lockup of police station at Canning. On the word of locals, arrested Hindu youths had been thorns to Muslim hoodlums like Shahjahan Sheikh, Shajahan Ghazi, Sabdel Mullah, Gaffar Mullah, and the hoodlums were desperate to get rid of them. As expected, police has not detained Shaukat Mollah, local leader of Trinamool Congress, yet even if he stated publicly on October 17 at Sarberia Gorurhat that if police fails to apprehend Hindus, a large of exodus of Hindus will follow only.

Durga puja pandals in Narkeldanga face communal threat; deities destroyed and pandal pillaged

An altercation on a minor issue soon turned ugly on the day of Maha Saptami , 10th October, in Narkeldanga area of Kolkata. It started when a few Muslim youths approached the Milan Sangha puja committee at Narkeldanga main road and instructed the members to stop the microphone during their ensuing namaaz.  Their posture and demeanour was unusually aggressive, which infuriated the members. The matter aggravated further when a police sergeant forcefully stopped the microphone; very soon the defiant members of puja committee turned it back on and continued to telecast the mangala stotram. As the time of namaaz was drawing nearer, Muslims youths went to the Narkeldanga mosque but after an hour they were found to approach Milan Sangha puja committee once more. The same group was joined now by a large number of Muslim youths armed with weapons including sticks, swords and daggers. Very soon they began to pillage the puja pandal. While the deity was stoned, the priest suffered severe injuries. Apart from desecration of deities, mangalghat or the sanctified pitcher was also crushed by the assailants. The en masse protest by Hindus to this communal conflagration led to a fury that was checked by hour-long efforts of police. But the police did not have any sigh of relief as turbulence erupted again in the day ofVijaya Dashami on 15th October in the noon when two unidentified Muslim youths riding a red-colored motorbike threw bones of cows to the puja pandal. Even if the officer-in-charge of Nakeldanga police station collected bones fast and made best efforts to retain communal harmony, tension is simmering in the locality.    

According to locals, this is not any new development in this area; however, there has been a surge in communal clashes in recent times and this year has seen its ugliest manifestation. The communal flare-up was not limited to an isolated zone in Narkeldanga; the Durga Puja pandal of Amra Sabai club located at 7/4, Chamu Singh Lane, had to take on threats on Maha Ashtami by local Muslim youths, hell-bent to stop use of microphone during namaaz. A problem which could have been solved amicably stirred up the neighborhood leading to overt clashes between Hindus and Muslims. Albeit the situation was brought under control through a persistent police force, the locality continues to simmer under communal tensions.

Police fails to arrest Mohammed Allatali Gayen of Rajbari Purbapara, Sandeskhali, after failed sexual assault bid

The savage bid of Mohammed Allatali Gayen to molest Joba Mandal, wife of Sishukumar Mandal, has lead to deep resentment among their neighborhood. The victim is 30 years old and resident of Rajbari Purbapara under the jurisdiction of Sandeshkhali police station in the district of South 24 Paraganas. And the persistent unwillingness of police to initially register the couple’s complaint against the culprit has intensified the anger. Sishukumar is a vendor by profession. On 25th September, Sishukumar returned to his residence from local crematorium after midnight. Because of strong emotional tussle after cremating a close relative along with the hard labor that comes with his job, he got asleep soon. Abiding by the Hindu custom, he was in veranda while Joba was inside. At around 1.30 am, Mohammed Allatali Gayen who is son of Kouhar Gayen and infamous for his licentious conducts, entered Shishukumar’s residence in search of Joba. But once he tried to cross Sishukumar, the later grabbed his garment. Sishukumar would later narrate to his neighbors that he had always been suspicious of Allatali’s behavior and hence he kept under a close watch for him. After being caught unawares, Allatali put up a tough fight. In the ensuing tussle, Sishukumar managed to loosen Allatali’s garments which compromised his ability to continue the flight and the attacker started to flee.

But Sishukumar raised an alarm, hearing which the neighbors rushed to the spot and advised Sishukumar to lodge an official complaint against the culprit at the local police station as well as the local administration including panchayat. But what awaited the affected couple at both centers was nothing but a grave disappointment. While local police station, especially its Sub-Inspector Jayanta Ghosh refused to lodge an FIR and registered a general diary of No. 1253 dated on 25th September, local panchayat assured them of dealing with the matter soon. It must be stated that the police initially asked Sishukumar and Joba whether they would like to lodge an official complaint. And after the couple agreed, police refused to abide by their request later on. Sadly enough, it was not to be the end of their harrowing experience. The affected couple narrated their painful experience to neighbors and later on due to pressures of local Hindus, police filed an official complaint (No. 448  on 1st October). Allatali Gayen is yet to be arrested while an intense search for him is apparently going on.

Another love jihad turns nightmare as victim returns to parents home bruised, beaten and tortured in Gazole, Malda

Baby Debnath, 29 years old lady and daughter of late Haren Chandra Debnath, is a resident of Arjunpur village under the jurisdiction of police station of Gazole in Malda district. The following is a harrowing tale of an innocent girl who has joined the bandwagon of unfortunate girls betrayed by the saga of love jihad. According to her own testimony, Mahbul Alam, son of Habiruddin Sarkar inhabiting the same village, promised her a job seven years back from today. Under his sway she went to several places under one false pretext or the other. She was also compelled to gratify his carnal desires that led to her pregnancy. When Baby confronted her with her situation, Mahbul assured to marry her and also to let her follow religion. Within the next few days, a nikahnama (Islamic marriage) took place where her name was changed to Baby Sultana without her own knowledge! But when she gave birth to a girl child dashing Mahbul’s hopes for a son, life quickly turned into a hell for her.

Mahbul Alam, unlike her previous experiences, appeared as a tyrant now. He brushed aside his solemn promises made before marriage and asked Baby to convert into Islam. This was just the beginning and with each passing day, this pressure continued to rise. Whenever she refused to convert to a Muslim, Baby was thrashed mercilessly. Mahbul was equally helped by Maleka Bibi, Mahbul’s mother, and the joint atrocity knew no bounds for poor Baby. At last, she gave in and agreed for conversion. But this accord failed to impress Mahbul; he was more interested to dispose of Baby. He planned to take Baby to another state and sell her off to the flesh trade. When Baby heard Mahbul to discuss this secret plan to someone in telephone, she refused to accompany him. Thus began the second spate of inhuman torture for Baby and she was completely devastated both mentally and physically. It was around 10.30 pm on 25th May when Mahbul started to batter Baby with a large wooden stick that had thorns made of iron. She sustained heavy injuries but even this failed to evoke any sympathy; Mahbul went on admonishing and even attempted to strangulate her. She was also told to consume poison and free Mahbul. To save herself, shattered Baby Debnath returned to her paternal residence next day after a gap of several years. She was admitted to Gazole hospital by her relatives. Later, a formal complaint was lodged by her against Mahbul Alam to the police station of Gajol demanding justice. But no interrogation has taken place yet as Mahbul Alam is an influential leader of Trinamool Congress in the locality.

Innocent auto-rickshaw driver almost lynched in Bagda

On 19th September at around 11.30 pm, Makhan Sarkar (age 47), resident of Amdoba village under the jurisdiction of Bagda police station in the district of 24 Paraganas (North) was returning from nearby Helenchbazar in his own auto rickshaw. Makhan had gone to the market to listen to Baul or folk songs that are characteristic of rural Bengal. He was driving fast but midway at Malipota in Dhutraberia, he was stopped by 4 persons who happened to be his next-door neighbours. After Makhan asked them about the reason for stopping his vehicle, all of them pounced down on Makhan as if to kill him. The assailants were Banki Billa Mandal, son of Kousher Ali Mandal, Samsuddin Mandal, son of Rezzaq Mandal, Mafizul Mullah, son of Syed Ali Mullah, Ramjan Ali Mir, son of Moniruddin Mir. It has been learnt later on that the attack was neither a spontaneous act of any provocation nor an attempt to rob Makhan but a carefully executed plan to murder him and seize his auto rickshaw. With this end in view, the four culprits dragged Makhan out of the vehicle and started beating him mercilessly with iron rods. Not a single portion of his body was spared and he got heavy injuries on both eyes and shoulders as a result of the attack. As blood poured out of his eye, the thrashing on innocent Makhan went on. At this time iron rods were replaced by bamboo sticks and his throat was also squeezed to asphyxiate him. Innocent Makhan started crying for help that fell on the deaf ears of the assailants. Fortunately for Makhan, hearing such a desperate call at late night, a few people of the area rushed to the spot. They included Ranjan Mallik, son of Bijoy Mallik, Pintu Sarkar, son of Kartik Sarkar. Apprehending danger, the four culprits left the spot but after looting Rs. 2500 from Makhan and breaking window pane of the vehicle. 

Makhan Sarkar was admitted to Bagda hospital where he underwent fast medical treatment but his condition continued to worsen and at the time of reporting, he remains in a critical condition fighting death. But what astounded all was the indisposition of police to lodge a complaint and only after many deliberations only a general diary was filed. The development infuriated the local people and activists of Hindu Samhati requested police officers to lodge an FIR but no one among the police considered it as essential. Only when police officials were reminded that only a diary may aggravate situation in Malipota, known for frequent communal clashes and deployment of RAF forces to quell those, a change took place. Finally, an FIR no. 628 under 341, 325, 379, 427, 349 sections of IPC was lodged on 23rd September. But culprits are yet to be detained while Makhan Sarkar writhes under a critical condition in the Bagda Hospital.
