Basanti apprehend violent communal clashes

Basanti in South 24 Paraganas district is seething with communal tensions and apprehension that violent altercations may take place between Hindus and Muslims is getting higher. To get the reality it is crucial to delve into a few pertinent facts. Sometime back, local Hindus wanted to construct a permanent structure to the Harisabha temple in Basanti market and had started to raise the requisite funds to cover the cost of construction. Even if lion’s share is being managed by Nemai Saha, president of Harisabha Temple Committee, there is the need of more. The Temple Committee, hence, decided to lease a portion of its property worth 2 bighas located few yards away from the temple. The Committee members also decided to lease a bank of the pond within the land and as per the Committee’s resolution, 12 shops of Hindus only would take place in the bank. The construction of 12 shops is going to end soon. On the opposite side of the pond, especially beside the PWD or Basanti to Bharatgarh ma

Surge in cases of sexual abuse against women in Bengal as administration goes slow on attackers

Sexual abuse and assault of women has become a regular affair in the Indian state of West Bengal. While people’s anguishes against the government for not doing enough to protect women are rising steadily, the government prefers to retain a strange silence. The actions of the government as well as ground reports suggests that in a majority of cases, the attackers belong to Muslim community whereas the victims are Hindus, leading to deepening resentment among the victims who allege that government inaction is only to secure minority votes. One of many such victims is 16 year old Sujata Mal, daughter of Biswanath Mal, resident of Maheshpur village in Jangipara police station, Radhanagar panchayet under Hoogly district. Sujata was a bright student of Dw arhatta Rajeswari Girls '  High School  in Class IX.

Bedrabad Baisnabnagar High School is located under the jurisdiction of Kaliachak police station in Malda district of West Bengal.

The event started on 4 th September when Ms Singha was asked to visit the headmaster’s chamber. During the interaction, she alleged that Mr Rahman abused her verbally in sexually explicit languages and then attempted to molest her while she pleaded to be left alone.

Political jubilation panics villagers of Kanaidanga, Hooghly

The jubilant march of activists and supporters of Trinamool Congress on August 25, 2013 after successfully forming the Panchayat board at Bhagabatipur under the jurisdiction of Chanditala police station in Hoogly district turned into havoc for villagers living in Kanaidanga. The village comprises a sizable number of Hindu Barga Kshatriya families who belong to the scheduled castes and are known to be CPM supporters in the neighborhood. It has been learnt that initially there was no plan to enter the village of Kanaidanga . The decision was taken later on by Haji Rabiul Mollah (Kanu) who is enjoying high status of a strongman in TMC these days. The march was being led by Mohan Bag and Srikanta Bag while Haji was in the forefront. Once the procession entered Kanaidanga, crackers were burst and it appeared as if the vitriolic participants were all set to carry on mayhem. Within a couple of minutes, the residence of Panchkari Bag was targeted and both his wife and niece were report

Tamluk, Block: Tamluk, District: Midnapur (East) experienced a brawl between two religious communities leading to a violent clash around 5 pm on September 9, 2013. It has come to knowledge, the problem started when a few Muslim youths asked a Hindu trader of Kumarganj market to either close down or relocate his shop to somewhere else to make their own club there. Dipankar Das, owner of the shop and also a supporter of Trinamool Congress, denied the offer flatly ensuing a heated argument. Dipankar was also joined by a few people soon and he decided not to give up. Finding it hard to deal with Dipankar, Muslim youths went back to their area only to return with more rowdies. While the fracas was in full swing, someone struck Dipakar with a rod. He fell on the ground and fled. But others supporting him then were not spared. They were beaten black and blue with all kinds of blunt instruments. Four in the crow
