Hindu cultivators from Nadia tortured in Bangladesh

BSF expects betterment of situation still!   

Whatever are the claims of Indian administration of prevalence of amiability in the India-Bangladesh international border area in Nadia, it is getting increasingly difficult for Indian peasants from this district to cultivate in their own fields in Bangladesh thanks to recurrent efforts there to terrorize them. This is the prevalent situation in the realm of Nadia, prominent district of Bengal, holding thousands of tracts alongside the international border between India and Bangladesh. It is no secret that Bengal continues to bear the sin of Partition in 1947 thus far and Nadia, in particular, is at the nadir as tens of thousands of cultivators inhabiting here have own fields on other side of the international border. Whenever peasants go there to cultivate, they are either harassed by personnel of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) or commoners despising presence of Hindu farmers. Often, they are arrested by BGB personnel for unknown reasons and are released weeks later. Even if Border Security Force (BSF) has been informed of this repeatedly, there has been no development yet.  

Incidentally, on 1st February, Ganeshbehari Ghosh, living in Bijaypur within the jurisdiction of police station of Krishnagunj in the district of Nadia, went to the other side to cultivate his own land. At that time, he was attacked by a few Muslim people there with lethal weapons leading to critical injury. BSF, following complaints from Ganeshbehari’s family, went out later on and after several searches, security personnel found him in a field in an unconscious state and smeared with blood. He was admitted to the Majdia Health Center in a critical condition. The incident led to a popular resentment within the environs. The protest was not limited to Bijaypur only; it got support from other adjoining areas as well. More and more people there are being found to narrate their own persecutions at the hands of Bangladeshi Muslims. It is worth mentioning, Muslim cultivators either from Bijaypur or neighborhood moving to the opposite side of border to cultivate are never harassed. On 4th February a flag meeting, in this regard, took place between BGB and BSF. Even though people pleaded BSF to let them participate in it, the demand was brushed aside. People were found to protest against BSF.

Will a mere flag meeting between BGB and BSF be able to end this fiasco? This issue is haunting people as their daily experiences portray the intensity of anti-Hindu mindset in Bangladesh best. 

While speaking on this issue, Subrata Mukherjee, local inhabitant as well as leader of Trinamool Congress, said that the problem is stepping up with each day it passes and despite innumerable meetings there has not been anything prolific. He also expressed vexation of BSF’s obstinacy in prohibiting Indians from taking part in these meetings while Bangladeshis participate in large numbers. Pushpendu Singh Rathour, DIG of BSF, has assured villagers that the problem will be solved soon and BGB will look after the issue and ensure safety to Indian cultivators. However, none in the locality is ready to abide by this weird (?) theory and the narrative of Gopal Das (name changed for safety) represents the common view here.

When Gopal Das was asked of chances of amiability through this meeting, he said, “No humane meeting can render peace. My age is 72; I know them (the other community) ever since my childhood. We are basically from Bagerhat area of Khulna district and I know how my grandparents were butchered in 1950. Now, if we go there for cultivation, we will be in groups and fully prepared to stave off any attack. Personnel of BSF are not local; they don’t know history of Bengal and destruction of Hindus. We do not depend on them.”

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.

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…
