Press Release : Islamic Mob Attacks Hindu Locality in Asansol for protecting a Hindu devotee from Molestation

A large number of Hindus injured due to a communal clash created by a Muslim mob at Asansol in Burdwan district of West Bengal.

On January 9 2009, four Muslims attacked a Hindu female devotee returning from a temple, of the Hindu Goddess Kali, and attempted to molest her in the Masterpara locality of Asansol city.

Local Hindus were outraged by this incident and beat up these four Muslim hoodlums. The four soon came back to the same location with a mob of around 300 Muslim activists, armed with swords and sticks, and attacked and vandalised Hindu owned shops, looted them, and beat up many members of the local Hindu populace.

As the besieged Hindus attempted to protect themselves and retaliated, joined by other Hindu residents of adjoining areas, a clash ensued. A large contingent of policemen from seven area police stations went to the area and resorted to baton-charge to separate the two groups in order to de-escalate the tension. Two companies of Rapid Action Force, an elite armed unit, were also patrolling the area.

A large number of Hindus were injured in the clash and resultant police action but the exact number was not clear. Six persons were indiscriminately arrested for the incident with police raids still continuing. Senior police officers were camping at the area as the situation remained vulnerable.

As always, the Bengali and Kolkata press remained totally silent whenever Hindus are being persecuted. This is their way of displaying 'Secularism' - a la carte.

This and many similar incidents show that Hindus cannot get any protection from WB police who are in love with Islamists. They will learn their lesson when the same Islamists come for their throats. Hindus need to engage in armed resistance. Each Hindu needs to keep at least a Trishul handy to inflict serious damage on these Muslim goons. We cannot be passive any longer.
