Bengal CM skips meeting US ambassador to pacify Muslims in state

Weird secularism rules the roost

Was the meeting between Ms. Nancy J Powell, ambassador of the United States to India, and Mamata Banerjee, Chief Minister of Kolkata, on February 21 cancelled deliberately to earn confidence of Muslims across the state before the upcoming Parliamentary election once more? The question may seem unlikely to many but happens to be the most discussed issue in the state’s political arena at the moment and such reflections are being found in Delhi too.  According to sources, it was a calculated act; the decision was taken by the Chief Minister and her confidants both within Trinamool Congress and Bengal Government and the sole purpose was to go on with cordiality with Muslims in the state.   

It is also a reality that a few influential Muslim groups in Bengal asked the Chief Minister to skip the meeting with US ambassador on February 21 even if it had been settled a week before. On the word of critics, the request was a veiled threat and any failure in this would have displeased Muslims in the state.  

It has come to knowledge, Ms. Nancy J Powell had sought this appointment following her meeting with Narendra Modi on February 13 but she had to remain content with meeting M K Narayanan, Hon’ble Governor of Bengal, and a few schoolchildren on February 21. However, this, as usual, has been termed by the Government as a fiction of imagination. But they have gone wrong in another sphere too – albeit they refute any compulsion in calling off the appointment with US ambassador, Muslim organizations in Bengal are simply elated at this decision of their beloved Didi.

Take for example Mohammad Quamruzzaman, general secretary of the All Bengal Minority Youth Federation and also a fast emerging Muslim leader in the state. He, while talking to press and media, claimed the development as a success of Muslims and stated that he all-alone had sent an email to the Chief Minister’s Office a few days back urging her to deflect the planned meeting with the ambassador of United States, worst enemy to Islamic Ummah.

When asked by representatives of press and media, Mohammad Quamruzzaman was found to say, ““This is a historic decision by our chief minister.” “We are happy that she has always seen the interest of her minority brothers. We sent an email to her on February 17 requesting her not to hold any meeting with a representative of a war-mongering country like America. And today we saw that she did not disappoint us. This is a good decision. Before the general election, minorities would never like the chief minister to meet people from the US.” He also added, “She has in fact never disappointed us.” “When controversial author Salman Rushdie wanted to visit the Calcutta Book Fair, we requested her not to allow him into the city. We also appealed to her not to allow a television show based on a story by Taslima Nasreen to be aired on a Bengali channel recently, and it was taken off air,” he said.

Moulana Noor-ur Rehman Barkati, influential Shahi Imam of Kolkata’s Tipu Sultan Mosque, was also found to reiterate this claim. He said, “After I came to know about the likely meeting, I advised Mamataji not to talk to representatives of America. It would have sent a wrong signal to the minority community. Mamata took a bold decision. She will get the results in the general election. She will secure maximum votes from the minorities.”

It must be mentioned that the obligation of a US ambassador is to negotiate a treaty and apart from other trivial jobs, his/her duty is to represent the interests and policies of United States. What makes any European country and also United States interested to Bengal is the latter’s geographical position along with potentials for development.  It seems Bengal has missed the bus of development again; the urge to placate Muslims is more now.

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…
