'Gajon' Procession attacked at Ketugram

After Nadia, North and South 24 Parganas, now, its time for Bardhaman to experience the true colour of so called religion of peace. Ketugram is a small village under Katwa Sub-division in the district of Bardhaman. The village has 80% Hindu & 20% Muslim population. For centuries, Hindus, in that locality, celebrate the last few days of the Bengali calendar year worshiping Lord Shiva which is popularly known as the Gajon festival.

As a part of the celebration, devotees take 5 idols of Lord Shiva for holy shower in the river Ganges at Uddharanpur that is almost 10 km away from Ketugram. On 11th April, 2013 a meeting was held in presence of ADM, SDPO, OC & CI of Ketugram police station where the route of the procession was approved by the administration. It was also decided in the meeting that as there was a mosque en route, the procession should start only after 1.05pm i.e. after the end of namaz.

Last year, Muslims disturbed and created problems in the ceremony. Hence, this year administration held the peace meeting prior to the ceremony.

Accordingly, on 12th April, the procession started after 1.05pm. But once the procession was passing by the mosque, which is in a stone throwing distance from local police station, Muslims started throwing brickbats at the procession without any provocation. Devotees, totally unaware of such attacks, became puzzled and panicked for shelter. This chaotic situation was enough to instigate police force led by ADM & SDPO to start pouncing on devotees. A good number of tear gas shells were charged by police towards the devotees, and then police resorted to lathi charge. The real perpetrators or actual attackers remained untouched.

Under the attack from both Muslims & police, Hindus became totally scattered. 5 idols of Lord Shiva, they were carrying, went missing. Then Muslims, under the leadership of Dalim Sheikh, started looting and ransacking nearby Hindus shops. Shops of Shyamal Dey, Ujjwal, Madhu Modak were looted in front of police. Madhu Majee, who went to protest, was brutally attacked by the group and police remained silent spectator. Once they were done with looting, Section 144 was imposed in the area and RAF was deployed to provide safety to Muslims attackers from a possible Hindu backlash. Now administration blocked the village to suppress the news of atrocities on Hindus. Nobody is allowed to enter the village. 

The Hindus could not complete their annual religious ritual.

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.

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…
