Press Release of Hindu Samhati on account of 16th August Program
16 August is a very important day in the history of India, Bengal and Kolkata. That was "Direct Action Day" in 1946 called by M A Jinnah of Muslim League.The then Chief Minister of United Bengal Mr. Suhrawardy observed this day by killing thousands of Hindus in Kolkata. The Statesman named it as "The Great Calcutta Killing". 5000 Hindus were killed in 3 days. At that time, Sri Gopal Chandra Mukherjee aka Gopal Pantha saved Kolkata by his heroic effort with the help of his young courageous colleagues. But Gandhi-Nehru sycophants and anti Hindu/anti national communist historians suppressed his glorious role just like they suppressed Dr. Shyamaprasad Mukherjee's role to save West Bengal in those tumultuous days. We Hindu Samhati observe this day, the 16 August as "Gopal Mukherjee Smaran Divas" every year.
The year 2014, being the birth centenary year of Sri Gopal Ch. Mukherjee, Hindu Samhati is going to observe this day as “Gopal Mukherjee Smaran Divas” by organizing a huge procession which shall commence from College Square at 12:30 PM and after covering different roads will end at Esplanade. Thousands of activists from different section of society are expected to join the procession.
The procession shall be led by Hindu Samhati President Sri Tapan Ghosh along with Sardar Tajinder PalSingh Bagga (President of Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena, Delhi), eminent social activist Sri. Asitava Bhowmik, Sri Shantanu Mukherjee (Grandson of Sri Gopal Mukherjee) and others.
As 16th August is approaching the response and support from different segments of the society are increasing. With the steady increase of support we expect a gathering of over 6 to 7 thousands.
The Indian Sikh community is extending its support to Hindu Samhati and thus they will be represented by Sardar Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga (President of Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena).
Representatives of the Buddhist and Jain community will also be present in the rally supporting the cause and work of Hindu Samhati.
Many ex-defence servicemen and ex-police personnel will also participate in the procession.
