Bengal’s doomed Hindu community – Tapan Kumar Ghosh

Tapan Kumar Ghosh“Mamata Banerjee has shamelessly surrendered to the Islamic fundamentalists. On April 3rd she convened a meeting of Imams at Netaji Indoor Stadium in Kolkata and proudly declared a monthly honorarium of Rs. 2500 per head for 30,000 Imams of West Bengal….  Then she announced that mosque muezzins would be provided with a monthly honorarium of Rs. 1000. How did Mamata’s government conclude that the imams are poverty-stricken?” – Tapan Kumar Ghosh

Left Front of BengalThe 34-year long rule of the Left Front in Bengal, according to some quarters, was not spontaneous, but the effect of a few secret measures adopted by Left bigwigs to retain their hegemony for eternity. These include implementation of land reforms, reorganization of Panchayats, expansion of small agriculture, provision to render foods in exchange of works in villages and rural economic development. But still there was a setback in the election of 1982, and though the Left Front managed to retain dominance, deep uncertainty started to gnaw its premier leaders.

There was a need for a stable alternative that could provide the Left certainty of electoral triumph, and there was none better than giving a fillip to illegal immigration of Islamists from Bangladesh to India; this would ensure their sway completely. So a vicious plan was undertaken, subverting national sovereignty and democracy. Illegal immigration became the order of the day, as evidenced by an assortment of reports of that period. The bordering districts of India-Bangladesh border have virtually turned into Islamist strongholds where each Hindu man lives in utter fear and the modesty of a Hindu woman is highly vulnerable.

Muslim infiltrator from BangladeshTake the situation in 24 Parganas border district. According to Bimal Pramanik (Endangered Demography: Nature and Impact of Demographic Changes in West Bengal, 1951-2001), “The 1981-1991 decade witnessed a massive growth rate of Muslim population, viz. 41.47%. This obviously is due to Muslim infiltration from Bangladesh. Consequently, the share of Muslim population rose from 22.43% (1971) to 24.22% (2001) within three decades, in spite of a massive Hindu immigration from Bangladesh during the same period. It will be more revealing if we go through the Block-level demographic changes. It needs a special mention that a large number of Muslims who had migrated to East Pakistan after Partition came back to this district not only during 1951-1971 but also after 1971, and this remains a persistent trend till today. Another important feature that needs mention in this connection is the continuous in-flow of Urdu speaking Muslims from Bangladesh after 1971.”

Hindus have also been entering India from Bangladesh, but as persecuted people only, and this gets more evident from the fact that they continue to live in Bengal devoid of any ration card, not to speak of any proper identity. The Left Front was brilliant in denying their claims of being legitimate refugees while bestowing all sorts of legal facilities on Islamists without delay.

Hindu Refugee AshramArticle 1 of the 1951 UN Convention as amended by the 1967 Protocol states that, a Refugee is “A person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it..” Hindus of Bangladesh are refugees and any attempt to deny this is untrue and baseless.

The Statesman in a report “3.8 million and counting”, reported that 3.8 million people in Bengal have been using bogus ration cards (provided only in Left regime only). Another 7.5 million cards are believed to be in circulation. Jyotipriya Mallik, Minister for Food and Supplies, said, “We started this drive from the very beginning of my tenure but for the past few months we were busy with procurement. We resumed the drive in April and in one month 1.8 million bogus ration cards were seized.” He has asked ration dealers and distributors to deposit fake ration cards within a specific period or be prepared for harsh measures.

Hindus protest Muslim attacksHindu religious procession beaten mercilessly in Hooghly

How Islamists remain outfitted (round the clock) to harass and thrash Hindus was again exposed on May 15, 2012, at village Santoshpur, P.S. Jangipara, Hooghly. Hindus have been observing Raksha Kali Puja there for decades and as a part of the program, on the fateful day, Hindus, mostly women, were carrying Gangajal from Sheoraphuli Ganga ghat to Santoshpur along with the holy deity. Musical instruments were played in the procession and the environment was joyful. Almost 50 policemen were guarding the procession.

But at 6 pm, police stopped the procession at No. 31 route for 40 minutes, to allow namaz at the Santoshpur mosque to be undisturbed. Hindus reacted strongly; they blocked the road to give vent to their feelings, but police said this was as per order of SDO. The procession resumed at 6.40 pm and the moment it reached Santosphur crossing, it was stopped by a number of armed persons led by Sahabuddin Mallik, Samsuddin Mallik, Rezwan Ali, known strongmen of the neighborhood. The Hindu religious procession was attacked, Hindu women thrashed with bamboo sticks, some were even stoned and sustained grave injuries…

All this happened in the presence of the police and only when Hindus hit back did the police step in and disperse the gang. The Kali puja was completed under tight security.

Mamata Banerjee doing namazMadrasa, Urdu & Imams’ Honorarium: Mamata Banerjee and fate of West Bengal

Mamata Banerjee has shamelessly surrendered to the Islamic fundamentalists. On 3 April, she convened a meeting of Imams at Netaji Indoor Stadium in Kolkata and proudly declared a monthly honorarium of Rs. 2500 per head for 30,000 Imams of West Bengal. Does India’s secular constitution permit any government to organize a meeting of religious representatives of just one community?

Then she announced that mosque muezzins would be provided with a monthly honorarium of Rs. 1000. How did Mamata’s government conclude that the Imams are poverty-stricken? During last decade have the number of mosques gone up or come down? Has not the area, volume and floors of these mosques gone up exponentially, indicating a free flow of funds? Then why this magnanimity of Rs. 90 crore annually? This is taxpayer money; who has given government the right to embezzle this money?

Bengal chief minister addressing Muslims.CPI (M) had reserved 10% jobs for Muslims, which is totally against the constitution. It used legal loopholes, categorizing all Muslims, rich as well as poor, as ‘OBC’. Mamata added 33 more castes to take the number of Muslim OBC castes to 98. She said eight more castes will be included subsequently. She also formed a task force to explore innovative possibilities to hoodwink the constitution and open government coffers for unbridled unconstitutional benefits to Muslims.

Mamata has declared that the ten thousand madrasas outside the ambit of State Madrasa Education Board would be recognised by the state government. The curriculum of these madrasas, presentation as well as those conducting the courses will be completely beyond the purview of the Madrasa Board or the control of the government. They would be beyond governmental observation but would have government recognition.

Mamata’s decisions are highly detrimental to the national interest. She declared Urdu as the second official language in districts where the Urdu speaking population is just 10%, a suicidal and divisive policy. In fact, Urdu domination spurred the language movement in erstwhile East Pakistan, leading to the formation of Bangladesh on a linguistic basis.

Burned-out Hindu house in West Bengal.Jalaberia: Applied Secularism

In Jalaberia, Kultali P.S., South 24 Pargana district, two dacoits were killed by mob some days ago. Now, on June 5, police are raiding the area at the dead of night, 2 am., beating and torturing the people including women. Some have already been arrested. People are feeling scared and helpless.

Seven year old Tarani Haldar’s hand has been fractured by police torture; he was seriously injured and had to be hospitalized. Others injured include Smt. Anjali Naskar (22); Smt. Bhadduri Sikari (45); Smt. Mallika Haldar (35); Sri Bijay Bairagi (35). It is unclear whether the rural hospital gave them an injury report and whether police will allow them to lodge a complaint against the police.

Taranagar is just 7 km. from this place. There was massive torture and arson in that village, but no worthwhile police action. This is the applied secularism of West Bengal. Common Hindus are accustomed with it. The consequence is migration.

Ashtami RayWho will resist? Men ask me, what should they do when their women are being beaten up by the police? What should be my answer? If I tell them to resist, we will be considered law breakers and extremists. Mamata will get a chance to crush us.

But the people resisted in huge numbers; the Police fired and arrested five persons. Police beat and tortured many women. Both CPM and SUCI party leaders pressurized police to do this. I cannot reach there because of distance and my schedule to go to Delhi to attend a court date. Thousands of Hindus have gheraoed Kultali P.S. demanding release of the arrested.

There is a total media blackout, which is the norm here. There is a huge build up of communal tensions in the region. – Vijayavaani, 8 June 2012

  1. fight back, get rid of that bitch, organise bring in other militant from other provinces, write to your president and fight back like lord Krishna said! Better they die than you!


  2. Let us start by asking the Bengal media why they don’t report rape and murder of Hindus by Muslim criminals. Who are they trying to protect? Anti-nationals who don’t even consider India their own? Fanatics whose life’s only goal is violence and crime?

    It is time we started holding people accountable. The politicians who sell their people’s lives and livelihood to criminals, for a few votes. The shameless cowardly ‘secular’ media who stays silent.

    But most of all, ourselves. Every innocent Hindu raped, dis-housed or killed is like a knife in our backs. If we choose to remain silent, then we may as well start wearing bangles and renounce our manhood forever.


  3. if mamata or whatever her name is going to pay those dheads for being imams, she better pay the hindu temple priests.


  4. hindus should unite and fight back. a bit of pig slaughter during ramadan won’t hurt. If the community is too small, get help from UP and Bihar and Orissa but fight or they will finish you!


  5. Thought provoking article-I have already read about it in American blog and Mr.Ghosh.Kick all Muslim out of Bengal and bring all Hindu back in India from Bangladesh.

    In west they are also prepared for the same thing-Read the blog-time to kick Islam out of Britain.


  6. hindu bengali– Arise awake stop not till you clean your own backward from jihadi not prove yourself FATUUUU…. by being silent.All the political parties in bengal have sold themselves to jihadis dont follow them.jai hind


  7. after Kerala ,west bengal is to become a muslim majority state.Hindu begalis have become so self centered ,that the dont care of there land any more they live for only money and selfish needs.Shame on hindu bengalis.Wake up like bodos ,fight for own land and dignity.jai hind


  8. The bane of India-the homeland of Hindus-is that Hindus are a divided lot. They hardly vote as Hindus but invariably vote as Brahmins, thakurs, SCs and STs.The last time there was some consolidation of the Hindu votes was during the Ram Mandir Movement when Hindus voted across caste lines. But, thanks to the BJP traitors who for the shake of power abandoned the issues like Ram Mandir, Article 370 and joined hands with the secular parties. This betrayal was a massive shock for the Hindus who once again sank into the dread abyss of caste politics. The result is the rise of casteiest leaders like Lalu, Nitish, Ramvilas and Mulayam at the cost of the BJP , the so-called Hindu party. On the other hand, the Muslims are a united lot. They are always sure of what they will do with their votes. So they vote such parties which will help them in their mission of turning India into Darul Islam.


  9. When Tapan Ghosh was arranging 4th anniversary of Hindu Samhati, Muslims protested. Obedient Mamata arrested him.But she could not keep him there. So she arranged Police to create all sorts of obstruction.Most Bengali Hindus do not care what’s happening in West Bengal. Only Hindus who suffered at the hands of Muslims are interested in Hindu Samhati. Any Hindu with self esteem should support Tapan Ghosh financially and spreading the news of his commitment.
