Who can stop cattle smuggling in Basirhat?

Not Bengal government indubitably

Basirhat is in headlines once more and as expected, for both wrong and usual reasons only. On April 23, in the night a fierce accident between a matador and a vehicle loaded with cattle led to injury of 15 people and 8 of them have already been transferred to the SSKM hospital in Kolkata and all of them, as per last reports, are in critical conditions yet. According to police and also locals, the lorry or vehicle loaded with a large number of cows was moving towards Basirhat while the matador was coming from there. Both vehicles were in high speed and collided soon. The aggrieved mob ransacked the lorry virtually and when police reached the spot, the entire police team had to deal with a strong protest. On the word of aggrieved villagers, the entire area, thanks to tacit support of local police and administration, has turned into a free zone for cattle smugglers and this saga has been going on for years. Cattle smugglers have become kingpins in the area and if anyone dares to protest, the person is either beaten hollow or hacked to death even. Locals asked police to adopt strong measures or else a people’s movement against all these illegal acts will unsettle the entire administrative scenario.        

Is the local administration capable to adopt tough measures? The answer is no and this assessment is not abrupt at all; scores of sordid experiences and hundreds of such incidents along with perception of police’s surrender to the nexus of cattle smuggling makes the scribe to deduce such. Administration in Basirhat does not belong to any particular political party but to smugglers with the power to win over anyone or even a dissident by large baits of money. Hindus living in Swarupnagar in Basirhat can narrate their own story or how they have become victims to cattle smugglers. In the year 2012, Kalu Ghosh and Debu Ghosh, two brothers living in the village of Baltighoshpara, within Swarupnagar police station’s jurisdiction protested against cattle smuggling but were thrashed by local activists of Trinamool Congress with cow smugglers in Baltibazar. Their houses were also ransacked. Robin Roy living in the village of Koijari within the same police station’s jurisdiction had the same fate. Muslim cow smugglers were using the lane before his house for an easy transportation and at every time, his housed used to be get damaged. Once when he protested, Robin was assaulted highly. Even Hindu women in his family were also not spared; cow smugglers attempted to rape them but the situation was saved as a large number of Hindus hearing the noise (women raised an alarm) rushed to the spot.      

Arindam Bagchi, another Hindu living in village of Mallikpur also raised a vehement protest against this intolerable smuggling of cows from different parts of India across the India-Bangladesh international border. Arindam was beaten so heavily that his family members were forced to take him to a nearby hospital. There is no difference in 2014 and to be precise, the situation has worsened. The detention and release of Abdul Barik Biswas on bail, known to have a property worth 100 crore based on this trade, of late exposes how Basirhat is vulnerable to cattle smuggling. He, himself has already stated smugglers of cattle have entered into the field of gold and this happens to be more profitable to them. Who can end cattle smuggling in Basirhat?

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…
