    Hindus flee from Riot Hit Bengal District - But to where ? Bay of Bengal?

    24 hurt in Bengal clashes, RAF called out
    September 08, 2010 11:47:10 AM

    PNS | Kolkata

    Rapid Action Force was called out as members of two communities clashed in the Basirhat sub-division of North 24 Parganas, about 150 km from Kolkata, leaving at least 24 persons, including the officer-in-charge of a police station, injured.

    Reportedly, clashes started around 11 pm on Monday and continued intermittently till Tuesday morning when members of one community started digging the pathway leading to a Durga temple at Chattal Pally village in Deganga police station, sources said.

    “When repeated requests to stop the digging failed, we called the police,” said one of the victims, adding that the clashes started only when the police intervened.

    Some people reportedly led by local ruffians — Maqbur Rehman and Mintu Sahji — attacked shops selectively and ransacked a couple of religious places, sources said, adding that a mob of about 500 persons resorted to massive stone-pelting, injuring three policemen. Officer-in-charge of Deganga, Arup Ghosh, received head injuries and suffered fracture in his hand.

    District Magistrate V Kumar said precautions had been taken and curfew had been clamped in the area. Paramilitary forces had been called out to assist the RAF, sources said, refusing to give further details.

    Two temples of Kartickpur and Deganga Biplabi colony were desecrated by the mob, sources said. “When we protested, they chased us with swords and hurled bombs. The police intervened but were hopelessly outnumbered,” Anil, a local who was also injured in the clashes, said.

    A particular community wanted to stop the 25-year Durga Puja in the area but failed in the face of resistance from the other community, sources said, but added that in recent times the administration in its bid to woo the minorities after the 2009 General Elections “simply looked the other way leaving us at their mercy”.

    The clashes spread to Kartickpur, Kadambagachi area as four stationary buses were torched. Traffic on the Deganga-Kadambagachi-Basirhat route came to a standstill even as the police resorted to lathicharge to control the crowd. The mob attacked shops at Beliaghata market as well, police sources said, adding, the situation was tense but under control.

    “The situation could have been even worse had it not been a bandh day on Tuesday,” police said and added that the area, a busy market place on a normal day, could have witnessed major violence.

    Basirhat, a parliamentary constituency bordering Bangladesh held till 2009 by the CPI, was wrested by Trinamool Congress’ Nurul Islam. Deganga-Berachapa, which has a Muslim population of more than 69 per cent, had been otherwise a peaceful area which made news only in 2008 following reports of land-acquisition. The local population united against the reported Government move to acquire land leading the administration to shelve the projects.

    Eight out of 29 blocks have a ‘minority-dominated’ population, thanks to unchecked infiltration from Bangladesh, locals complained, adding, the protest against infiltration continued to be an irritant between the two communities.

    “TC leader Ratna Chowdhury was pressuring the police not to take any action against the erring mob which selectively looted and ransacked shops of a particular community,” said Anil.

    There was no communication from administration. Locals complained both the Left and the TC leaders, including Islam, were backing the attackers. “We are under continuous threat in our own country and if this trend continues, we will have to migrate to some other district,” Subhashis Tarafdar, a local, said.

    Three things to do

    1) Stop vote bank politics in the name of minorities and secularism.
    2) Kick-out the illegal Bangladeshis.
    3) Let police and security forces do their job without interference.

    Rather interesting news.

    I live in Kolkata, but have not heard this news.

    Durga Puja is due and so this type of activity is indeed unfortunate.

    Elections are also due. Mamta Bannerjee and now Rahul Gandhi have swung into action.

    Bengal is caught between a rock and a hard place: It's either Left or Mamata. Not much of a choice.

Before that the Muslims from nearby areas tried to dismantle the peaceful demonstration with heavy brick-baiting. After that some 10/12 Muslim youth attacked the common Hindu people near Haritala and broke some shops there.

    Muslim Persecution of Hindus In India -- The Story You Won't See In the Western Mainstream Media

    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2010/09/ ... terrorism/

    They are crossing the border illegally and violently displacing the indigenous population whose homes and possessions they either destroy or occupy. They are attacking the young, the elderly, and especially the girls and women, whom they kidnap, forcibly convert, or traffic into brothels. The locals are terrified of them. The police rarely come to their aid, nor do the politically correct media or government. Both are terrified by the criminals and terrorists who are riding these immigrant waves.

    I am not talking about illegal immigrants to Europe or North America. I am describing Muslims who are penetrating India’s West Bengal region. These Bangladeshi immigrants are becoming conduits for criminal activities (arms, drugs, and sexual slavery) which also fund global jihad.

    You won’t read about this in the Western mainstream media—or even in the Indian media, which has turned a blind eye to this ongoing tragedy because they are afraid to be labeled “politically incorrect” or “Islamophobic.” They are also afraid of reprisals. When Islamic zealots ransacked the office of the renowned newspaper, ‘The Statesman’ in Kolkata, in retaliation for a mere reproduction of an article condemning Islamic extremism, the Indian press remained silent. The editor and publisher of the newspaper were arrested for offending Muslim sentiments and no action was taken against the rioters.

    Fortunately, there are a few very brave Hindus who are taking a stand against the Muslim terror campaign in India. One of them is Tapan Ghosh, whom I had the privilege of meeting recently when he came to New York City to talk about anti-Hindu persecution in his homeland. In 2008, Ghosh founded “Hindu Samhati” (Hindu Solidarity Movement), which serves persecuted Hindu communities in both West Bengal and Bangladesh.

    DEGANGA UPDATE

    UPDATE DEGANGA

    The situation has been worsened today morning, Muslims again attacked the Hindus at Beliaghata and Kartickpur. Temple destruction and looting of Hindu houses and shops are going on in massive scale.

    Today morning Muslims destroyed Khejurdanga Durgamandap, Changdana Shiv Temple, Kartickpur Kali Temple and several other Hindu temples.

    The Hindu shops of Beliaghata market have been looted. Grocery shop of Jhantu Biswas at Kartickpur bus stand has been looted totally.

    Houses of Tarun Bhowmik, Kuntal Das, Kalyan Dutta and many others have been looted and ransacked.

    Muslims are threatening that tonight they will enjoy all Hindu women.

    All these happened in front of police and RAF (Rapid Action Force).

    It is reported that RAF fled from the area leaving the hapless Hindus at the mercy of the rampaging Muslims. So, Muslims are looting and destroying unhindered.

    In another report it is learnt that thousands of Muslims from Falti Anchal attacked Beliaghata market. 10-12 RAF personnel has taken shelter in a shop, they closed the shutter from inside to save their lives and the Muslims poured petrol outside the shop.

    Even the District Superintendent of Police is unable to enter the area, or may be he is afraid of. He is standing at Golaghata, 6 kms. away from the hot spot.

    Hindus started to remove the women elderly and the children of their families to safer areas. But it is being extremely difficult for them because Muslims encircled them in all directions. Frantic calls are coming to HS workers to rescue them. HS workers are trying to enter the area from any side.

    The situation is totally out of control. Administration totally failed. Now it is considering to deploy ARMY.

    Report compiled by HS International Media Team.

    To keep Kashmir within India the Corrupt criminal leaders like Nehru and Gandhi do not accept the suggestion of Sardar patel excahnging the 47 millions Muslims of India with the hapless Hindus from Pakistan and Bangladesh.All the slaughtering of Hindus since independence and until now by the Muslims should be directly pointed at these Congress leaders. Now the dynastic Italian lady not only allowing criminalization of India, running a government through fraud and Muslim appeasement to help slaughtering Hindus by the Muslims through government protection and inorder to cover such Hindu Holocaust, she told his homeminister to talk about "Safforn terror". How long Hindus will tolerate this Italian Mafia lady to run India with her group of similar greedy and equally corrupt anti=hindu political leaders for power corrupt leaders like laloo, Mulyam, Paswan etc. to unleash merciless killings of the Hindus and raping of the Hindu women to force them flee their homes while bribing the all major media to praise about her NGRE program, a calculated voter buying loot of 60,000 corers, now another loot of CWG around 30,000 for the Congress party workers ultimately keep as next election expenditure for fraud to keep the majority Hindus as slave under her feet. It is a shame of the majority Hindus to tolerate this corrupt anti social CIA plant Italian Lady to let her run our 7000 years old civilization Hindu country at the cost of the ruthless suppression of the majority Hindus. Muslim have 52 countries to relocate and Paksitan but Hindus have none. Hindus lost 100,000 temples and still Muslim fight for Ayodha and no media report about the status of Hindu temples in Pakistan or in Bangladesh and now with in Indian state of west Bengal illegal Bangladeshi Muslims destroying Hindu temples with Police protection from left and by Trinamool Congress/ God bless the Hindus.

    Democracy ha ..ha.. ha ..PM Man Maran Singh, the remote Control PM of India called Mukesh Ambani to bring the suitcase full of money for horse trading of the MPs to save the Government from Cut motion.Unheard of such level of corruption by this UPA government.Grow up man do not shove your nonsense argument to tell Hindus to go to Pakistan. This is sham democracy to encourage corruption with no end , that is why, even after 63 years of Independence millions people in India starved to death without any basic amenities and food or drinking water or sanitation and with 40 millions Illigal Bangladeshi Muslims. The corrupt democratic system helped this corrupt Political leaders to fool the poor people of India and to pile up 1.5 trillions dollars in the Swiss bank account, highest in the world.

    Bengal riot victims live in fear, anxiety
    http://dailypioneer.com/282172/Bengal-r ... xiety.html

    September 10, 2010 7:38:25 AM

    Saugar Sengupta | Deganga

    BJP delegation for action against Trinamool MP

    Nights have never been so cruel for the residents of Deganga village in North 24 Parganas, which has seen one community’s members perpetrate terror on another for days together. To make matters worse, the violence - taking place just 45 km from Kolkata -- is backed by local MP Nurul Islam.

    “Either kill us or give us a reason to live with dignity. They have torched our houses and shops, looted everything we had,” cried Uttam Saha of Saha Communications, who lost goods worth Rs 4.5 lakh to the bedlam on Monday.

    Niranjan Sarkar of Kartickpur said, “I myself saw Nurul Islam shouting at his men, who came in trucks from Beliaghata, Sashan and Basirhat, to ravage the temple.” Overcome with rage and humiliation, he added, “They smashed the Kali and Shani idols after desecrating them.” Nurul, the local Trinamool Congress MP from Basirhaat, had defeated CPI’s Ajoy Chakrabarty in the 2009 general election.

    Sandhya (name changed), a B Sc final-year student of Barasat Government College, was one of the few brave girls who dared the sustained onslaught. “We fled from Bangladesh to Barasat. Now where do they want us to go? You do something for us or tell us a way to finish ourselves,” she pleaded with Dr Chandan Mitra and Uday Singh, the BJP MPs who visited the area on Thursday to share the victims’ plight and take stock of the situation.

    In the area, fear and angst was fast giving way to outrage. “Incidentally, things would not have come
    to such a pass had the administration moved earlier. The culprits earlier belonged to the CPI(M), which had some kind of control over them. But after 2009, they have joined the Trinamool and the party, on account of its communal politics, has given them the licence to riot,” claimed Anadi Pradhan. “They would return on Id,” he said.

    Meanwhile, Dr Mitra and Singh, who had a meeting with the police administration brass, demanded that the culprits be brought to book. “The local MP is being accused by all the residents. They say he was the one who led the attack,” Dr Mitra said. Saying that the issue would be raised nationally, the two BJP MPs demanded speedy rehabilitation for those affected in the attacks.

    Earlier, the row reached a flashpoint when members of one community dug up the pathway leading to a Durga temple at Chattal Pally village, barely 100 metres from the Deganga police station. They attacked the other community members, when they were requested to stop the digging.

    The land, which originally belonged to Rani Rashmani of Kolkata, is now disputed. Part of it is used as a graveyard and another part by the Durga Puja committee for the past 40 years. A nNow he is taking revenge on us for voting against him. In doing so, he is also fulfilling the promise he made to his community members,” complained a local. “They brought people in trucks, created a mayhem by digging the temple path and attacked the villagers. In the melee, they hoisted a loudspeaker on top of the mosque,” he added.
    arrow road slices the two pieces of land. “This is the biggest of the 40-odd Pujas that take place in the area. We have even been awarded by the police station for conducting peaceful Puja,” said Arun Sadhukhan.

    The rioters looted at least 250 shops, torched 50 houses and desecrated five temples since Monday afternoon as punishment for raising objections to digging the pathway leading to the Durga Puja pandal. “They did not only burn the Kakra Mirza Nagar Kali temple, but also desecrated the Mother goddess,” complained another resident.

    While the feud came to a flashpoint at Chattal Pally, it had its genesis in two earlier incidents. The earlier issue was blaring of loudspeakers from a mosque at Deganga Bazar. The issue is sub judice following the Calcutta High Court’s order for a status quo against the blaring loudspeaker. The community members approached Nurul in 2009, who reportedly promised them that he would help them use the loudspeaker if they voted for him. Incidentally, this was one of the reasons the other community members voted against the sitting MP.

    “
    IGP (Northern Range) Sanjoy Mukherjee, however, said, “The attack was a more spontaneous and less planned.” Police had taken action and things were “cooling down fast”, he added.

    Shit, the situation seems to be really going out of hand in this part of Bengal !! All this is the result of divisive, communal politics and the rampant movement of illegals from Bangladesh !!! I am really surprised that such instances are occuring in Barasat also, so close to Kolkata, and coming up to be a booming, modern township on the north eastern outskirts of the city !!
