Hindu girl gang-raped in Sandeshkhali

Tortures on Hindus soar; administration gutless, voiceless On April 28, at 2 am, a band of robbers, headed by Osman Mollah, raided the residence of a tribal Hindu businessman (of paddy) and demanded a large amount of money and when he failed to comply with, his adolescent daughter Ratna (name changed) was taken as hostage but found gang-raped later on. This gruesome incident took place at Jhupkhali Kacharipara within the jurisdiction of Sandeshkhali police station in Basirhat subdivision in the district of North 24 Paraganas.

Hindus smashed up in Comilla, Bangladesh

On April 27, 2014, minority Hindus living in the village of Baksitarampur within the Chanderchar Union, sub-district of Homna in the district of Comilla in Bangladesh earned the wrath of tens of thousands of radical Muslims that led to utter destruction of 35 residences of Hindus along with a Hindu temple. Hindus were taken aback by the entire development where even students of five madrasas took part elatedly and as expected, the destruction went on for hours. Hindus pleaded with the belligerent crowd to stop but the appeal fell on deaf ears only. It has come to knowledge, a derogatory remark on Hazrat Mohammed, Prophet of Islam, on Facebook urged the Islamic crowd to assail Hindus. However, many have been found to state that it was nothing but a rumor based on which Hindus were targeted. The incident terrorized Hindus in the village such that they fled during the onslaught and they are hiding still. According to local sources and police and also devastated Hindus, Muslims, livi

Where can Hindu refugees from Bangladesh go other than India?

Political parties are up in arms against the recent statement of Narendra Modi of packing off illegal infiltrators from Bangladesh to India and some Hindus have also been found to join the bandwagon and without doubt, this attitude reflects their inhuman dearth of knowledge instead of erudition. Even if the chronicle of illegal infiltration of Islamists in Bangladesh has been ravaging the national economy, secular parties in strength, to retain power through support of Muslims en masse, prefer to be reticent. There has been no end to this endeavor. A question also arises – how will leaders of these parties react if they discern that their kith and kin are compelled everyday to convert to another religion and if he/she belongs to any minority religious community, the existence of concerned individual at stake. Do they know how Islamists are estranging Hindus in Bangladesh? Do they know that Hindus are having two options now there – either they have to become Muslims or leave Bang

Will doctor’s murder initiate anew spate of Hindu persecution in Kultali?

Law and order is not on the verge of falling down in Bengal; it is on the wane already and while the saga of violence and communal clashes soar, police and administration prefer to witness from a distance. And if the victim turns out to be a Hindu anyway, derision instead of justice remains his only destiny. All these are being said, now, by people inhabiting the areas within the jurisdiction of Kultali police station in the district of South 24 Paraganas on the unprecedented murder of Mrityunjay Purakait (age 46). He was a doctor by profession, living in the village of Manikapir within the same police station’s jurisdiction, and was murdered on April 27 in the morning.  The doctor was murdered by Karim Dhali, inhabitant of the village of Deulbari Devipur village panchayat within the jurisdiction of Kultali police station.  He is in the police custody at the moment. What led to the ghastly crime? According to villagers, Karim Dhali’s two month-old son was suffering from pneum

Hindus at nadir in Bangladesh

Alarming rise in persecution menaces Hindu existence     Inhibiting all expectations of minority communities and also of liberals in Bangladesh that the new government would adopt all measures to bring the crisis to a halt, persecutions on Hindus with other minority communities is rising alarmingly there and the alleged secular government headed by Awami League, found to be highly vociferous against mounting clout of Islamists in the country even a few months back, is found to retain a weird silence only. Has any truce been signed between Awami League and Jamaat forces? This motion is prevailing official circles of eastern part of Indian subcontinent too, primarily India as it shall have to bear the burden of Bengali Hindu refugee influx if worst pogroms start against them back home.   The surge in attacks on Hindus include plundering their residences, endeavors to both defile and destroy holy deities in Hindu temples, burning down Hindu establishments and forcible abduction

Hindus in Joynagar stave off Islamists’ nefarious plot

Conspiracy to rout Hindus hatched months back While the entire nation is under the spell of parliamentary election, 2014, Hindus inhabiting Durgapur in Joynagar, known for recurrent communal clashes through years, are engaged in a fiery resistance to fast increasing aggressions of Islamists in the area. On the word of people dwelling the area of Taltala of Durgapur in Joynagar within the Joynagar police station’s jurisdiction in the district of South 24 Paraganas, the crisis was initiated by an individual named Jehangir Ghazi. Jehangir Ghazi, in recent past, purchased a stretch of land behind the local Balak Sammilani Club and also alongside the land owned by Tappan Malakar, a Hindu individual. None in the village opposed Jehangir’s venture especially when he had constructed his own residence in the village. The residence of Jehangir looks like a ship and it became an attraction for all within the village and its vicinity also. Honest Hindus in the village assumed that Jehang

On April 23, in the night a fierce accident between a matador and a vehicle loaded with cattle led to injury of 15 people and 8 of them have already been transferred to the SSKM hospital in Kolkata and all of them, as per last reports, are in critical conditions yet. According to police and also locals, the lorry or vehicle loaded with a large number of cows was moving towards Basirhat while the matador was coming from there. Both vehicles were in high speed and collided soon. The aggrieved mob ransacked the lorry virtually and when police reached the spot, the entire police team had to deal with a strong protest. On the word of aggrieved villagers, the entire area, thanks to tacit support of local police and administration, has turned into a free zone for cattle smugglers and this saga has been going on for years. Cattle smugglers have become kingpins in t

Dream of Sovereign, Islamic Bangladesh with Kolkata comes forth

Dr. Subramanian Swamy’s assertion a couple of days back over the rising clout of Bangladeshi infiltrators in India and the obligation of Bangladesh, abiding by the principles of humanity and also of global polity to retain harmony, to compensate India with land has been retorted with strength and the speaker is Shah Alam Pradhan, president of Jatiyo Gonatantrk Party (National Democratic Party) or JAGPA in Bangladesh, known for its far-right politics. JAGPA, at the moment, is a key member of the 18 party alliance led by BNP and enjoys bonhomie with other Islamist parties in the country. While reacting to Swamy’s statements at the Jatiya Press Club (National Press Club) in Dhaka on April 21, Shah Alam Pradhan threatened to make a new, sovereign Bangladesh including Kolkata.       Dr. Subramanian Swamy, while expressing his apprehensions on the unchecked and also mounting infiltration from Bangladesh at Guwahati, had stated explicitly, “If Bangladesh does not agree to take back its

Bengali Hindus must use watershed Lok Sabha Election, 2014 sagaciously

Failure to cost their survival They are international to the core and also known for their humane values. They have been torchbearers of two Renaissances, have generated myriad scholars, educationists, political leaders of high repute. Their contribution to the saga of national freedom struggle is second to none and still, their glorious ancestors who sacrificed all to break the shackles of slavery to British Empire are venerated highly by others. They have been extremely large in philosophy while extremely narrow and also rudderless in real politiks. They have the intellect of a Greek but grit of a rabbit, as per British evaluation, though this estimation has always been confronted too. How are they now? The community is just staggering and also groping in darkness. While a significant portion of this community is on the verge of extinction in the neighboring country, in its home state (yet) its religious-linguistic identity is at stake. How can this be defined? An Irony of Fate

Members of the Shiva Puja Committee asked the Muslim youths to go away immediately.  The Muslim youths retreated and tension di
