Muslim Cleric Dictates Bengal Chief Minister to Block Salman Rushdie’s Visit to Kolkata

Are we in a civilized state?

It’s official now – Bengal Chief Minister, Ms. Mamata Banerjee, was wholly instrumental to block the visit of Salman Rushdie, internationally acclaimed author, to Kolkata and she acted thus on the dictation rather than advice of an Islamic cleric, Maulana Barkati, Imam of the Tipu Sultan Mosque. And this has been claimed by none except the Imam himself while there has not been any approach from the Bengal government or CM’s office yet to nullify it.

On the word of Imam, "I spoke to Mamata Banerjee when she was in Darjeeling. Just one day before Salman was to come ...He was supposed to come in the morning. I got to know the night before. She said don't worry, I won't let him come. You don't worry. Ours is a secular state. It will remain secular. Mamata said he was a shaitan."

This statement has been rocking the mainstream media and hence, it can’t be termed as a mere fabrication of Hindu activists, hounded by the same government time and again.

The truth behind the entire development has been strengthened by Sultan Ahmed, Trinamool MP, who without any qualms stated, "If the West Bengal government stopped him from coming, then I congratulate the government, I congratulate Mamata Banerjee." Idris Ali, All India Minority Forum president and Trinamool Congress leader who played a key role in expelling Taslima Nasreen from Kolkata in 2007, said, “the chief minister wants communal harmony in the state. I congratulate her, the police and the administration for taking proper decisions in maintaining peace”.

Perhaps the entire development makes a staunch secularist (who believes at least that secularism denotes a doctrine that rejects religion and religious considerations and a truly secular state has no business with any religion in particular) ashamed and also believe that everything in contemporary Bengal is moving towards a wrong direction and is ruining its own political fabric steadily.

The unfortunate incident brings forth another reality too – how a Chief Minister can stoop for own political benefits – to go for Muslim appeasement blatantly disregarding constitutional duties.

Even if Salman Rushdie has lashed out the Bengal government, it will definitely fail to make Ms. Mamata Banerjee, Bengal CM, realize her own gigantic blunders. She is in the chair for bettering Muslims only while others in the state, let alone Hindus, will have to remain high and dry.

We are in a weird democracy where democracy is guaranteed to all constitutionally but the political power (to implement it perfectly) rests with rouges, rascals, freebooters and certainly shameless appeasers to Muslim radicals.  

Hindu Samhati regularly monitors and reports violations against Hindus in West Bengal. We also work with both governmental and NGO agencies for proper education on protection and ensure remedies to the Hindu populace as per prevailing law of the land.

Another outrage in Bengal - Hindu Monk of Ramakrishna Order stripped and beaten mercilessly for Ashram land.

A panic may strike now the common Hindu people for the ongoing incidents of South Bengal for the last two months when the CPI(M), the ruling party of the state tasted a bad defeat by losing the muslim support in this region through Panchayet election. When the wining force of All India Trinamul congress (AITMC known as TMC), is considering all the prime posts for the muslim minorities in every stage of Panchayet system, the losing CPIM has already adopted the way of direct torture against hindu people out of any situation for winning the heart of muslim people and to regain the muslim support by giving various packages to the muslim minority.
On June 12, 2008 one Muslim leader of CPI(M) Sk. Ismail initiated the attack upon Hindu pilgrims in Gangasagar with the help of some 3000 fanatical muslim mob. Now they have tried to capture the Gorerhat Ramakrishna Ashram Campus by attempting murder of Swami Punnyalokanandaji, the Adhyaksha (in-charge) of the religious unit at Gorerhat under Joyn…

Hindus in Panchla reel under terror

The whole of Panchla, at the moment, is staggering under a fear of death. The expression may appear to be impolite to many readers but the cruel truth can neither be avoided nor be concocted. The visit of a team of Hindu Samhati to the worst-hit areas today itself has brought such heartrending and horrific accounts out.  The earlier report was based on firsthand information while assaults on Hindus were in full swing but now the details reveal a greater horror. Contrary to beliefs that murderous assaults were limited to a handful of villages, it’s now evident that lots of areas populated by Hindus were attacked by the lethal mob simultaneously and they include the village of Biki Hakola including wards like Raypara, Kolepara, Pachhalpara, Choto Gabberia, Beltala, Daspara, Hazrapara and Gabberia Kacharigora. And all these encompass an area of 10 Everything happened as part of grievous and premeditated strategies and hence, the brutal mob was well prepared from the very beginning…
