Blame the Person Before You Shoot!
Granting bail to Tapan Ghosh, president – Hindu Samhati, arrested on March 14, 2013, by Hon’ble Dist. & Session Judge in the Judges Court in Alipore, on March 22, 2013, made Hindus buoyant that his final release (accordingly) on March 23, 2013 (today itself) would add a new chapter to the glorious and valiant Hindu struggle.
But dashing all such hopes the last citadel of Hindu struggle in Bengal has been put behind bars once more and according to fresh reports that are coming in, Tapan da has been sent to jail custody again in relation to Case No. 410/12 of P.S. Gopalnagar. He is confined at Alipore Central Jail at the moment.
What makes the administration change its earlier decision so swiftly? Are these entire nothing save political gambits to curb Hindus and break their morale as far as possible? Both issues, if appraised under contemporary developments, seem to be more than perfect. Bengal, in a few words, is both in doldrums and bedlam, thanks to a rudderless political clique at the helm of affairs now and also its mounting pro-Islamist policies. Never before such a pandemonium was witnessed in the state (considering the ruthless ‘70s even) and all these have led to a political blankness that can be filled up by competent force only.
Hindu Samhati, voicing Hindu anguishes in Bengal so ardently, has become the prime target of the administration and its bosses (both within and outside the country) hence and to diminish its fervent struggle once and for all, cases, in succession, are being leveled against Hindu Samhati and its president.
The case of Jalaberia for which Sections 147/148/149/332/333/353/427/152/153/109/186/507/186/307 I.P.C. & 4 E.S. Act and 3 & 4 P.D.P.P. Act (Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, 1984) were imposed on 37 Hindus including Tapan Ghosh leading to his unethical arrest was tenuous from the very beginning and this has been stated time and again in this official website of Hindu Samhati.
Nevertheless, giving in to furious Hindu protests and mass movement, the administration bailed Tapan Ghosh out on March 22, 2013 and also proclaimed that the final release would be on March 23, 2013.
But owing to the hell-bent desire to contain a leonine leader like Tapan da, the new case has been brought forth – a case which is more unsubstantiated than the earlier one.
Case No. 410/12 of P.S. Gopalnagar relates to the incident on October 27, 2012, at village: Magurkhali, Subdivision: Bangaon, District: 24 Paraganas (North). On the very day of Bakra Eid, Hindus there had protested en masse against the ploy of cow slaughter and got enraged to see that Officer-in-Charge – P.S. Gopalnagar led such a slaughtering. The quarrel between Hindus and police led to a vehement face-off and the Hindu valiance there overwhelmed police completely. The situation was calmed but Hindus remained steadfast in demanding arrests of four Islamists and stringent punishment of O.C. – P.S. Gopalnagar, responsible for slaughtering cow.
Even if local M.P., M.L.A. and SDPO assured Hindus of justice, nothing has happened yet.
Astonishingly, 4 Hindu youths, alleged as troublemakers in the very incident, have never been harassed or even interrogated by police thus far.
And in spite of all these, Tapan Ghosh has been convicted in the same case and Sections 147/148/149/325 along with other non-bailable sections have been charged against him.
This is a sheer State Repression and no matter what, Hindu Samhati can’t be subdued, let alone destructed by its strength.
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.
