Bajrang Dal Activist severely beaten by Police
It is a Jihad of iconoclasm surfacing here and there in Medinipur town of west Bengal. From the second Sunday of May the Hindus of Medinipur faced a ‘Jihad against Infidels’ fomented by the fundamental Muslims of the town, even from some Islamic felons coming from outside. 200 Muslim miscreants came together in the late night on May 12, and rampaged in a Kali Temple near Keranitola.
Police imposed partial restriction in portion in the town subsequently. The Bajrang Dal and some club members blocked the roads and observed bandh in some areas on May 13 morning in the protest of Islamic hooliganism in Medinipur.
The tension between Hindu Muslims started in the post evening on 12th May, when a Hindu motorcycle rider collided with a Muslim bicycle rider and the local Muslims captured the motorcyclist and for a ransom of Rs. 25,000/-. Knowing the situation, the Hindu activists of the town reached the place of turmoil to rescue the Hindu man without any ransom. Losing the captive, angry Muslim perpetrators gathered stealthily to attack the local Kali temple as a revenge. The deity of Goddess Kali was fully damaged by the attackers with iron rods and lethal weapons. When the Hindus were getting ready for a retaliation, Police and Rapid Action Force (RAF) took the control the area to pacify Hindu wrath by force. Three Hindu boys were detained by police initially. Afterwards police arrested another six Hindu persons, but not a single Muslim was arrested for the damage and desecration of the Hindu deities and the Hindu temple. Mamata Banerjee’s police is very much proactive to protect the Muslim hooligans in Medinipur and kharagpur towns. Some the Hindu protesters were severely beaten up by the cops favoring the Muslims. An Administration, Police and Judiciary trio is plying a foul role against victimized Hindus by denying the bail of the falsely accused persons so far. A legal team of RSS and Bajrang Dal are monitoring the crisis so far. But there was no news for this in the secular media in Bengal.
But, it was reported in a pro-Hindu website that “on 12/05/2013 at around 9:00 PM, some boys from Goyla Para were gossiping by the roadside near Keranitola on their motorcycles, suddenly a large container truck came in high speed, after delivering motorcycles to a nearby shop Palco Motors, and hit one of the boys. That made the boys furious and they stopped the truck and demanded an apology from the driver. The driver allegedly refused to tender any apology and rather started using abusive language against the boys. This made the boys hostile and they broke the headlamp of the truck. Hearing the chaos, a group of people came out from the Dewan Sporting Club – which regularly receives huge fund from the proprietor of Palco Motors, situated just opposite to the incident. The club secretary Shaikh Laltu and Shaikh Tulucame to the spot immediately along with other boys and started beating the boys. They also started pelting stones towards them. Some brickbats thrown by the club members hit the mazar nearby resulting some damage into it. Then they accused the Hindu boys for desecrating the mazar and attacked the Kali temple beside the road. They kicked at the idol, destroyed it and started playing with broken idol. Hindu boys from Goyla Para could not tolerate it anymore. They called other people from their area and pounced on them. Allegedly they also attacked the mosque and mazar and damaged its properties. Once, they were gaining the control over the situation, the administration called for RAF from Salua and Sec 144 was imposed.
The situation is still very tense in the area. Hindus, in the area, are fuming for revenge. It is reported that even RAF personnel are offering them moral support. Local MLA Mrigen Maity and former commissioner Nazim Ahmed have reached the place and appealed for maintaining peace and communal harmony.“
The situation turned grim when some conspirators put some garbage in front a mazar (where Muslims worship a grave as a holy object) near Palbari area in the night of 19th May and as a motivated revenge (after spreading the rumours of desecration of mazar), the Muslim felons broken a Bajrangbali deity of a temple near Gandhi Ghat beside Kansai Bridge (the gateway of Midnapore town) in the early morning of 20th May.
Apprehending a severe retaliation from the Hindus of the town, Sri Soumen Khan, local Councillor of Medinipur Municipality rushed to the place with police contingent and cleared the broken idols of Bajragbali in order to install a new idol of Bajrangbali within 6-30 am.
The tension between Hindus and Muslims in the town is growing fast. And Administration and Police authorities are playing a very objectionable role under the dictum of pro-Muslim TMC party from the beginning. Four more Hindu activists of Bajrag Dal have been arrested on 20th May and no Muslim is arrested yet.
All the 13 Hindus arrested so far are being denied from getting bail under a repression made by the ruling party in West Bengal led by an Islamic mentor named Mamataz Banu Arjee.
For last few years, Medinipur Town has been turned as the den of Bangladeshi Muslim infiltrators. They are mainly concentrated in the areas Pathan Mohalla, Dewan Chak, Sepoy Bazar and Aurobinda Nagar near Medinipur Court. These Muslims are engaged in Love Jihad and women trafficking, desecrating Hindu temples, land grabbing from Hindus, illegal cow slaughtering even within non-Muslim areas and putting many hurdles to Hindu festivals.
Unfortunately, this town gave birth of the culprit of Direct Action Day (Calcutta, 1946), Hasan Shaheed Suhrawardy, who is still an inspiration of the subversive Muslims of Medinipur. Hindus of Medinipur must find their own way to their struggle for existence. (VSK Kolkata)
