Adverse fate of Mohammed Morsalin, teacher of Akra High Madrasa, 24 Paraganas (South) can’t also be ruled out. One of his essays “Satya Mithya” was published in Eid edition of literary magazine “Pragoti” in 2005. Once it was published, revered teacher along with his family became victim of Islamic vandalism.
