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.
