Hindu Youths of Bagnan-Patinan Fight Back And Succeed Despite Heavy Odds !

The tension between the two villages under Bagnan Police Station of Howrah district, the Hindu majority Patinan and Muslim majority Khajurti, has a long history.

On 15th of January, 2013, a large number of Muslim villagers of "Khajurti" attacked Patinan and tried to occupy properties of Hindus, they tried to ransack Hindu residential areas, tried to forcibly capture the Hindu temple associated with Patinan Hindu Cremation ground. This kind of illegal activity and assault was hard to accept by the Hindu youths of Patinan village. They resisted the assault in huge numbers being united under the assistive guidance of Hindu Samhati youths of neighboring areas. The Hindus also tried to draw the attention of local administration and Bagnan Police. But police did not take concern; rather they advised the Hindus to accept the reality of current political and religious condition of West Bengal, i.e. to concede every Muslim demand, just or unjust, legal or illegal. Hence, the emboldened Muslims, in the darkness of night of the same day, armed with illegal firearms, forcibly made an illegal construction there, a concrete culvert to join the low land tunnel area connecting these two villages to get easy access to the Hindu cremation ground. They also tried to encroach upon the Hindu Cremation ground and cover the area with cemented boundaries.

Next day on 16th Jan 2013, police came and tried to manage the situation by forcing the Hindus to "adjust a little bit" to accept the incidents and not to react or interrupt by any means. Hindus got furious and strongly demanded administrative lawful action against the trespassers (violent Muslims) by police. Hence to calm the tense situation, Police arranged a peace meeting of both parties (Hindu and Muslim) to find a solution.

When the meeting was going on at another place with some representatives of both communities, all Hindus of Patinan village got together and broke down the illegal construction made by the Muslims in the darkness of last midnight. Villagers smashed and crushed down the illegally newly-made culvert, the symbol of atrocity and cruel aggression. In such ways, Hindus fought back with full courage and action against the mischievous design to encroach upon Hindu temple and community property. This is another success story against the odd of brazen Muslim appeasement of present day administration by the newly energized Hindus of Howrah rural areas.

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.
