Gajan festival demolished in Mandirbzar, South 24 Paraganas

Islamist onslaughts rampant; Hindus not dispirited but defiant 

Gajan Utsav (festival) in Bengal happens to be a traditional dance coupled with songs to venerate Lord Shiva during Chaitra or the last month of Bengali calendar and this has been going for centuries. But radical Muslims are no more ready to let it go; the village of Bodokania within the jurisdiction of Mandirbazar police station in the district of South 24 Paraganas had its wrath on April 12. It was at 9 pm when a few Hindu youths in Bodokania came across a group of Muslim youths beside the village’s thoroughfare drinking hard liquor and also using marijuana. Since it was near to the Gajan Utsav of 150 years old, Hindus asked them to leave which was denied instantly. Two Hindu youths, in response, were slapped as well leading to exchanges of both words and blows between the two groups.  Within a few minutes, Muslims in large numbers from the nearby village of Banshidharpur Haldarpara turned up making Hindus there a minuscule minority. This large gathering lost no time to smash up the Hindu youths and albeit, the youths managed to escape, they were chased by Islamists in large numbers. Gajan Utsav came to a halt.

A bomb was hurled at this time to foil the Hindu celebration but it was avenged by another bomb and a good number of people, both Hindus and Muslims, got injured. According to locals, two Hindus along with seven Muslims were harmed grievously. This series of attacks attracted more Islamists to take part in the onslaught. Suddenly, the electricity was cut off and the entire area plunged into darkness. Triumphs in war depends on exploiting abrupt developments perfectly and true to form, Islamists beefed up attacks then through using lethal weapons including firearms, bombs but Hindus were also in no mood to cede to them. Hence, a war of weapons let loose. Pebbles were also exchanged by the two warring communities violently. To stamp down the rising menace, a large team of police from the police station of Joynagar appeared within the next 30 minutes; they were soon followed by another contingent of police from the Mandirbazar police station. On the word of local administration, the situation (by then) was completely out of control and hence, they could do nothing except to fire tear gas at both groups and wait till the deployment of an unit of Rapid Action Force. Despite RAF’s deployment, one could hear bombings from miles away.            

None, in accordance with the latest information, has been arrested yet. But Islamists have been found to allege Pratap Naskar, Chiranjit Naskar and a few others to mastermind the entire defence. The situation is extremely tricky now; however, no further acts of violence have taken place yet thanks to the presence of police and RAF in strength in the midst of Bodokania. Hindus are having sleepless nights now as the security will be withdrawn in the next three days. What appalls them is the aggression of Islamists baying for blood of several Hindu youths including Pratap Naskar and Chiranjit Naskar. They are groping in darkness for a peaceable solution which seems to have been lost for the time being.

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…
