Barbaric assault on Hindus in Jangipara village
On 15th November, 2009 around 4 PM Trinomool Congress took out a victory procession from the two Muslim dominated villages, namely Sufijangal and Bahana of Jangipara, Hoogly district.
It is noteworthy that about eighty percent of the people who joined and led the procession were Muslims, and the remaining ones were Hindus. Raising fiercely the Islamic slogans, i.e., Allah Ho Akbar and Narae Takdir, the belligerent procession made its way through the main road and entered the Hindu villages one after one, namely Borhol, Khurigachi, Nikash, Dilkhash etc and damaged and looted Hindu shops. The tea stall of Sankar Das (Hindu) at 'Borhol Bypass More' was looted and razed to the ground. "All Hindus of the area will be chopped off"-such slogans were aired. The Hindus were beaten up indiscriminately.
Prasenjit Bag, a well-known worker of Hindu organisations received serious injuries in the attack. He had to be hospitalized and his left limb is still in critical condition. The assailants who hit him with thick rods are listed below:
1) Jambur Mallick (father's name: Ismail Mallick)
2) Sheikh Rojob Ali (father's name: Sheikh Sajjad Ali)
Besides these two, numerous other Muslims committed brutal atrocities against the Hindus in several other villages. According to the account of Prasenjit Bag, quite a few Hindus who sustained several injuries all over their body lied in the beds near him. They told that when Muslims beat and stabbed them with lethal weapons, they reiterated the slogan, "The signs of Islamic terror are being painted on Hindu bodies now". This incident occurred a day before at the nearby village named 'Sitapur'.
Hindu Samhati wants to question the twenty percent Hindus who attended the procession--"you remained silent spectators when such scale of atrocity was committed by Muslims at free will against your brothers. What message are your silence and your impotency supposed to send to the local Hindus, gentlemen?"
