Islamic attempts to rob ancient Shyamchand Temple, Shantipur on the rise
Administration remains silent
What is the best way to ruin the confidence of any person or community? It is to inflict violent attacks on the most cherished objects of the very individual or community and to break the morale of Hindus, the best way is to assail their venerated temples – a stratagem too well-known to Muslim radicals down the centuries.
Shyamchand Temple in Shantipur, District: Nadia, of 700 years old, known for its architecture and also for playing a pivotal role in guiding Hindus in the vicinity, to strengthen the intra-community bond has become the latest victim to Muslim radicals and their devilish designs to erase Hindus from the area.
On April 5, 2013, the age-old temple became victim to Islamists. It has been learnt, Muslim radicals broke locks and made several attempts to get into the revered temple. However, the presence of interlocking system thwarted their effort and they had to leave (for this time) unsuccessfully. This was the fourth attempt of burglary into Shyamchand Temple (in a row). Is there any reason to incriminate Muslim radicals in this regard?
There is, indeed as lots of other temples have been robbed by Islamists and the inactivity of administration is beefing up their confidence only.
On April 6, 2013, a large number of Hindus went to P.S. Shantipur to lodge an official complaint but they just snubbed. Not the police did not file the case but expressed its helplessness also to subdue Islamists.
Will Shyamchand Temple in Shantipur be robbed one and fall down ultimately? Hindus must find out the answer – virility is necessary to preserve religious stronghold and also posterity.
