Hindus stop administration from favoring Islamists in Jangipara, Hooghly

Iron fortitude rules the show

The village of Santoshpur within the jurisdiction of Jangipara police station in the district of Hooghly is affected by another communal conflagration and it has stemmed from the same Islamic burial ground or the bone of contention between Hindus and Muslims in the locale for years. The problem started of late when local police and administration was found to be support one community blatantly over the same contentious issue making Hindus in the area burst into protest. A large contingent of police has already been deployed to get over any further deterioration of law and order.

It is worthwhile to mention, a vested land consisting of a pond also and located beside Jangipara Main Road (Root-31) was changed to an Islamic burial ground (forcibly) a few years back. Terming any such construction as precarious to the existence of Hindus in the village of Jangipara, locals stopped the construction and after a few years, thanks to relentless struggles of Hindus, the proposal was withdrawn by local Muslims. Now, Islamists, exploiting the pro-minority or pro-Muslim outlook of reigning Trinamool Congress government in Bengal, are back with their old agenda. Even if Hindus are trying best to stall the program once more, they have not been able to take on the overwhelming administration yet.

Meanwhile, the administration has decided to metal an unmetalled road connecting the villages of Santoshpur and Amarpur villages. The abovementioned Islamic burial ground is beside the side road as well. Local Muslims tried to take advantage of the situation and pressurized the local administration to favor the cemetery. Islamists asked the administration to leave a strip of land worth 15 ft. between the proposed metal road and the burial chamber. The administration was learnt to yield to this demand enraging local Hindus inhabiting the villages of Santoshpur and Amarpur a lot.

On June 19, when the cemetery’s managing committee was found to stage their demands, Hindus rose to the occasion and burst into vigorous protests. When efforts to push back the vibrant Hindu crowd occurred, the police force was also charged in return leading to a face to face confrontation. Hindus were united under the leadership of Raghu Patra and Debraj Soren, two Hindu individuals living in the vicinity. When both administration and Islamic cemetery’s managing committee found it impossible to inhibit Hindus, they opted for a truce and accepted demands of Hindus. It has been decided, a strip of land worth 1.5 ft. road will be between the metallic road and burial chamber.             

Santoshpur in Jangipara has never been alien to such tensions. People may recollect that only on May 15, 2012 Hindus in this village were assailed mercilessly by Islamists and Hindu women became their early targets. It was the day of Raksha Kali Puja; Hindus formed a musical procession to fetch holy water of River Ganges for the Puja. The procession was guarded by around 50 police personnel. At 6 pm, the procession was stopped by police, as ordered by SDO, to let the namaz (being performed at the Santoshpur mosque) remain undisturbed. The decision enraged Hindus and they blocked the main thoroughfare as a mark of protest.   

The religious procession started at 6.40 pm but once it reached Santosphur crossway, no less than 100 Islamists led by Sahabuddin Mallik, Samsuddin Mallik and Rezwan Ali attacked Hindus. Hindu women became worst victims and once Hindus started fiery resistance, police stopped Islamists and dispersed the gang. Clashes or even verbal spats between the two communities have been going on strongly ever since then. 

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…
