Spate of Terror following Election; A Few Questions

Results of 16 th Lok Sabha Election have brought forth a historic decision by Indians on the whole; NDA led by BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) has achieved an astounding success through securing an absolute majority. If BJP is taken into consideration apart, the party has attained its biggest victory ever since its formation in 1980. What has been its impact in Bengal then? Even if BJP has been able to wrest two MP seats and also raise its voting share in the state considerably, Trinamool Congress by procuring 34 seats has also penned a historic success. What would be the fate of nation and state hence depends on BJP and TMC respectively; certainly Hindu Samhati is not related to it. But the reign of terror afflicting the state with a wave of bloodshed must be contemplated highly.  

Right to Vote is a rational corollary of the Fundamental Right to Freedom of Speech and Expression and forms the basis of any successful democracy like India. You can capture the power only if you emerge victorious in the election and this basic notion is known to all political parties. That’s why, violence during election or following it is no new development in the Indian scenario. But the picture, at this time, is different in Bengal. On the word of political pundits and other experts, the minority vote bank has played a substantial role to the astounding success of Trinamool Congress in the state. Trinamool leadership agrees to this view also and exploiting this favorable situation, minority hooligans are inflicting the worst persecution on Hindus across the length and breadth of the state. Even if this is the cruel reality, criminals are trying to paint the rush of tortures on Hindus in a political color and Trinamool party’s flag is used hence rampantly. The situation at vast areas in the district of North and South 24 Paraganas, areas close to the international India-Bangladesh border, Usti, Falta, Mograhat, areas close to the international border in North Bengal is worst; Hindu villagers have become worst victims to relentless attacks of Islamists. Since Islamists are using TMC’s flags, administration is scared to keep them in custody. Shajahan Sheikh, Salim, Shaukat Mullah or Abdul Barik have become trusted lieutenants of TMC. Nevertheless, they used to be vanguards of CPIM during Left Front’s hegemony; it has got to be kept in mind. With the change of guard in 2011, these criminals also joined Trinamool brigade. Earlier they used to torment Hindus by using Red flags; now the same is being done with Trinamool Congress’ silent blessings. Hindus have no respite in rural Bengal. It’s the high-time for all to grasp this brutal truth.   

It’s also the time for present rulers in Bengal to get hold of another truth; they didn’t emerge victorious with minority votes only. Had Hindus not supported them wholeheartedly, triumph would have continued to remain a victory for them. As a result, the state government must step in to save Hindus from Islamists as well as atrocities of police. Culprits, to be precise, ran amok in the areas of Haroa, Sandeshkhali, Usti, Mograhat and Bangaon for the last few days. Hindus are under a reign of terror there while many of them have fled as well. Police and administration must succor these helpless people and restore law fast.  

There is no skepticism with the affection of Chief Minister to Bengal. But her imprudence has turned the rural Bengal to a casualty. While attacks on women are on the rise, lands in Bengal are being grabbed stealthily but steadily by hostile forces. Only the Chief Minister can save the state from such a crisis. She has an innate capacity to change courses of history. The same can be done here too but wisdom must be there at the same time. We do appeal to her to save Bengal.

Truth can’t be suppressed

Hindu Samhati, for the last 6 years, has been endeavoring best to make people realize the soaring communal tussles across Bengal and how Hindu bashing is getting identical to secularism. Whatever its attempts are, press and media in the state are up in arms against Samhati terming these incidents if exposed may endanger Bengal. Chaos and violent struggles will replace tranquility. As a result, mounting Hindu persecution (in every capacity) is being avoided with spiteful intent. But persecutions on Hindus as found in different districts refuse to die down and instead, the tacit political support is giving a boost to Islamists’ fortitude to exterminate Hindus racially. It is alleged that social responsibility prevents the media world from performing the noble duty to make people conscious always. Hence, while Hindu women are abducted or raped, Hindu temples are defiled and destructed, Hindus are beaten mercilessly, media remains a silent spectator. Well, at times, media publishes such stories under duress but utmost care is taken to keep the religious passion propelling attacks on Hindus a secret. 

On the contrary, riots in Godhra 2002 or Muzaffarnagar of late continue to rule the media and hence, the human psyche. None knows where the Kashmiri Hindus are now. They were banished from their own ancestral places in Kashmir in 1989 but there has hardly been any documentary on their plights and also shown in any television channel. Nevertheless, all are free to witness the conditions of Muslims following the recent spate of riots at Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh. And these are depicted to make people comprehend how the minority community of Muslims is being persecuted by Hindus day in and day out; there can’t be a greater untruth to this. All these are enough to haunt a commoner and make him/her wonder of the media’s hypocrisy.  

What makes the press and media within India retain such hostility to Hindus? To be precise, it is the compulsion of these agencies to the market. Contrary to the past, press and media are accountable to their financial bosses now and neither the country nor its populace. What they fail to comprehend is that truth gets apparent to all however the forces to inhibit it are powerful.  Now, let’s check the reality which is hardly found or (better to say) remains absent altogether in the news world. According to police reports, communal scuffles in rural Bengal have soared highly in the last one year. While 12 to 40 such incidents happened between 2008 and 2012, 103 communally charged incidents marred Bengal’s landscape only in 2013. And this brings forth another sordid reality – Bengal is one of the first ten communally sensitive states in India.   

This authentic report makes an inquisitive reader surmise also that communal conflagration prevails the state however brawny the saga of secularism is. There has also been a stiff rise of this peril recently.  What’s the reason then? The cudgel of responsibility remains with the present state government and undoubtedly, it stems from the blatant Muslim appeasement. The state government’s hands are stained with the filth of introducing subsidies for Imams, inaugurations of various schemes for Muslims in particular and Mamata’s attendance in various Islamic congregations with hijab; all-out publicity of her offering namaz in public has heightened the communal polarization in the state. As said by an official of State Minority Affairs Department, following the Trinamool Congress government’s commencement, no less than 400 Muslim NGOs have come to the fore. Again, no less than 597 madrasas recognized by the government exist already. Government’s indifference to adopt tough measures against criminals like Abdul Barik Biswas, Munna Iqbal, Arabul, Selim, Khonra Hussain, Shashjahan Sheikh and appointing a dubious person with strong links to outlawed SIMI to the Rajya Sabha as MP has beefed up Islamic aggression highly, in accordance with commoners.

Albeit this allegation is a cruel, real fact, it is not completed. It is worth mentioning, Hindu Samhati’s influence has increased fast in areas infested with communal clashes and thanks to this, Hindus have regained the confidence to fight back. Striking dissimilarities to the past are happening now, Hindus have no fear to report any incident to the police stations. Hindus are no more submissive but are found to retaliate. Accordingly, conflicts are getting common and are being registered by the police. Even if rise in communal conflicts is a cause of concern, there is a need to wait to discern whether growth in Hindu confidence is a silver lining. 

Hindu Samhati regularly monitors and reports violations against Hindus in West Bengal. We also work with both governmental and NGO agencies for proper education on protection and ensure remedies to the Hindu populace as per prevailing law of the land.

Diabolical intentions to deceive Hindus prevail Bengal

The stage was all set and with the election commission’s promulgation of Lok Sabha Election, 2014, political parties, with exception to none, have initiated their quest to clutch New Delhi, both capital and final seat of power in India.  It is no more a secret that the parliamentary election will take place through 5 phases in the state of Bengal and only after May 16 (the date of counting) the destiny will get apparent. As a result, it’s the time for any political party or candidate to overwhelm rivals no matter what it takes. The saga has commenced in Bengal as well but it seems that there is one objective here and it is to attain the blessings of minority community, especially Muslims. No stone, in this respect, is left unturned to have Islamic approval and almost every day, candidates along with their political bosses are witnessed to visit Imams or mazars.  A few political pundits have termed this as worst instance of brazenness. But there is no sane brain to listen to this erudition that can preclude insidious fallouts.

It is no wonder that CPIM and reigning Trinamool Congress are abiding by this saga of weird secularism. But BJP is also adopting this endeavor fast and its parliamentary candidates have already been witnessed to seek succor from Muslim religious leaders.  What an irony! BJP is considered both as precursor and custodian of Hindus in India. And the principal parties in the state including Trinamool Congress, CPIM and Congress never miss an opportunity to dub BJP as a Hindu communal outfit. There is an old adage – whenver a Hindu consumes beef, he gets more anti-Hindu than a common Islamist. BJP is also in the same category now, it sounds as if.

This burgeoning trend of placating Muslims all the time is leading to a destruction altogether and no political party is ready to comprehend this cruel truth. None is also unaware that any such development will harm Hindus ultimately. The situation was out of the frying pan and now it is going to be into the fire thanks to enterprises of Rezzaq Mollah to change Bengal’s political scenario through his own novel Dalit-Muslim axis. This is a heinous conspiracy only and the sole aim is to destruct Hindus. It may be unknown to the readers but such a movement had sprung during the tumultuous days of partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947 too. The same Dalit-Muslim axis had become the greatest obstacle to Hindu unity then and had Hindus remained united, they wouldn’t have to relinquish their ancestral lands in (then) East Bengal and enter West Bengal in their thousands.    

The same sinister approach is prevailing Bengal’s political spectrum after several decades; Rezzaq Mollah is hell-bent to make his dream project of alliance between Dalit Hindus and Muslims a great success. Once this outfit gets powerful, Hindus will have to abandon Bengal en masse. Following it, the state will be removed from India and will be attached to Bangladesh. As soon as this diabolical endeavor becomes triumphant, Dalit Hindus will be kicked out from this new Islamic territory. Thus, there will be repetition of Barisal genocide of 1949-50. It is worth remembering, the self-claimed custodian of Dalit Hindus or Jogen Mandal had to flee then East Pakistan as pauper. Later on, this crestfallen leader accepted that there can’t be any unity between Muslims and Hindus ever. The same theory has come forth through Mollah now and the year is 2014 instead of 1947.  

Political parties are devoid of any time to heed all these. When the lust of money and power prevails, patriotism as well as honesty becomes synonymous to laughingstocks. Aren’t Hindus responsible for this deplorable condition too? Hindu society is bootless and this has been proved time and again. If 36 Hindus assemble at any table even, six ideologies will come forth and these diverging views are enough to raze the notion of Hindu vote bank. The absence of a brawny, influential Hindu vote bank encourages all to placate Muslims. It is high time to erect a Hindu vote bank both in Bengal and India.   

What’s the duty of Hindu Samhati’s activists in the parliamentary election? They have been asked to steer clear of supporting any particular political party and to opt for candidates having zeal to better situations for Hindus.

Mischievous approaches of press and media to malign Hindu Samhati

Even in this year too the role of press and electronic media to the rally of Hindu Samhati on February 14 at Rani Rashmani Road in Kolkata remained unchanged. Well, there was indeed no such expectation too but none conceived that custodians of press freedom in Bengal would stoop such to placate the cardinal mantra of secularism in the state. Naturally, there was no report on next day’s newspaper despite the fact that it’s difficult to remember any other such jam-packed mass meeting by any Hindu organization in the city of Kolkata. What was published in newspapers then? It was nothing save for harassment of public owing to the mass meeting and concocted reports of peoples’ anguishes were also included in the report. But none did care to accentuate the meeting’s significance in the contemporary socio-economic and political scenario. Now let’s compare this stance of press and electronic media to other recent developments.

Two weeks before the rally of Hindu Samhati on February 14, 2014, Kolkata remained witness to three successive public meetings at the Brigade Parade Ground and without a shred of doubt, thanks to all these, traffic system in the metropolis was thrown out of gear almost. But no report on this decline of traffic system then was perceived in any newspaper, let alone in the electronic media or any news channel. They were more interested to eulogize the concerned political parties and also their leadership for mere benefits only. How can this be termed other than parochialism? 

This is not all as one Bengali newspaper (taking pleasure in its reincarnation while its assets and also benefactors are shrouded under mystery) termed Hindu Samhati as hate monger and the public meeting on February 14 organized by its as the biggest show of communalism in recorded history of Kolkata. Well, India or the largest democracy across the globe is known for letting its citizens enjoy the Fundamental Right of Freedom of Speech and in this respect, one has the fundamental right to express his own opinions. This happens to be the guiding force behind press freedom as well. But, at the same time, the voice and reality of the newspaper or persons responsible for penning it must also be ascertained. He, according to records of Government of India, happens to be the founder of outlawed SIMI (Students’ Islamic Movement of India) and even intelligence agencies are learnt to keep a close watch on him. Yet he could manage to get favor of Bengal Chief Minister and Mamata Banerjee, either due to compulsions or weird factors, nominated him as Trinamool Congress candidate to Rajya Sabha.

The sole intention of this tainted and communally biased newspaper is to provoke religious sentiments in the state of Bengal and to feign as ideal secular through publicizing reports of communal disturbances. In a way, this newspaper is best paradigm of contemporary definition of secularism prevailing not Bengal only but the whole of India also. Secularism, if truth be told, is nothing save for a cloak to these divisive persons and to maintain this tradition, they do not even blink to publish fictitious stories. In Naliakhali at Canning residences of more than 200 Hindu families were bunt down and it emanated from the murder of a person. But the newspaper did all ranging from perverting the truth to publication of fabricated reports. Is this secularism or the repetition of Taqiya only? It’s the time to get conscious or else the decline of Bengal soon can’t be checked.

Hindu Samhati drudges in villages, knaves bent to exploit

Hindu Samhati, at the moment, is working in more than 500 villages across several districts in West Bengal and thanks to its own vigor, the organization has become a household name in the districts of 24 Paraganas (North and South), Howrah, Hooghly, Bardhaman, Nadia, Birbhum. But all these bring out a pertinent subject again and it’s regarding the primary job of Hindu Samhati. Hindu Samhati, through years of struggle, has become a vanguard of Hindu defence in Bengal and this can be ascertained from a single fact – Hindu Samhati gives Hindu morale a fillip to strike back Jihadi attacks wherever it happens. It’s a cruel fact that no option except united resistance is in hand or else the tragic episode of partition in 1947 despoiling Hindus overnight would be repeated yet again. With the partition the greater half of pre-1947 Bengal went to the Islamic state of Pakistan (now Bangladesh). But there is no respite as sinister developments (perceived in 1946-47) are resurfacing in West Bengal and if lessons from history are not learnt, we will be doomed to repeat it.  West Bengal was created as a refuge for persecuted Hindus from East Bengal. Alas, there is no such place now. If Bengali Hindus conceive of entering the states of Orissa, Bihar or Uttar Pradesh, they will have to count on generosity of people there only and by degrees they will lose their uniqueness. Thus, the saga of religious impeccability, culture and also cultivation of intellect of Bengali Hindus will become a history and the land known for its perseverance and cultivation of Vedic Dharma from time immemorial will kick the bucket. Hindu Samhati desires to reveal this truth (however cruel it is) to all. And through this it hopes all to comprehend a single fact – there is no way excluding struggle to salvage Hindus.          

Hindu Samhati was set up only six years ago. But even in this small episode, it has been able to build up a commendable resistance. Consistency in both word and action happen to be basis of its success and it is manifested best when Hindus, reeling under decades of persecution by Islamists in West Bengal, are hitting back. Hindus living in areas including villages of Sonakhali, Fakirtakia, Kumrakhali in 24 Paraganas (South), Baruipur, Rajbari in Sandeshkhali within the district of 24 Paraganas (North), Bangaon, Swarupnagar, both Bangnan and Sankrail in Howrah are struggling hard against persecution under the leadership of Hindu Samhati. Even Hindus living in Enatlly, Gobra at Park Circus, Maniktala in Kolkata have also risen up against persecution by radical Muslims. Had there been no Hindu Samhati, Hindus would have to go on with their anguishes only.    

There are, indeed, lots of Hindu social organizations in Bengal and the majority of these are older than Hindu Samhati also. They are known for their commendable activities, in particular succoring Hindus during Jihadi attacks in areas like Rupnagar-Taranagar, Naliakhali and several others. But sadly they have not been found to explicate the basic reasons behind these malicious, grievous attacks against Hindus and also to ask them to gear up, struggle against such terrible destiny. Will they continue as succorers to Hindus all the time? It seems that they depend more on fatalism than struggle. Hindu Samhati differs to them at this point and hence, it has brought forth a new mantra – “Struggle and not serving is the sole way to survive.” Hindu Samhati has been set up for warriors and not for Hindus ceding to persecutions and awaiting assistances.

However, another crisis is also cropping up. Hindu Samhati has been able to strengthen morale, actuate martial spirit of Hindus highly and all these lead to its escalating popularity in rural arena of West Bengal.  But a few upstart Hindu organizations have also been noticed to exploit this trust of commoners by using the name of Hindu Samhati. Even if there is hardly any connection to Hindu Samhati, these organizations feign as Hindu Samhati and earn faith of common Hindus. This must be stopped as none is allowed to utilize immense sacrifices, inhuman struggles of Hindu Samhati’s valiant warriors.

It’s, therefore, the time for Hindu Samhati’s activists, sympathizers to get conscious. They shall have to build up connection with more people and express views of Hindu Samhati to them at once. It’s essential to deflect others from exploiting the faith on Hindu Samhati.

Should we remain silent only?

We are heading to a new Parliamentary election once more and the sole question remains of the victor now. Who will triumph finally?  Will it be the same UPA or whether it’s the time for NDA-led by BJP to ascend? Or will there be any Third Front? Well, it can be anyone but the minority community has nothing to worry.  It, true to its records, has become active already to influence the electoral procedure and it is no secret to any that all political parties in India, cutting across so-called ideologies, are hell-bent to appease them to have their blessings (in terms of votes). Islamic organizations know well how political leaders leave no stone unturned to have their support and hence, visit their offices day in and day out. So, to exploit such a golden opportunity, a Charter of Demands (containing 20 demands for now) has already been staged to different parties (as published in the Nov. 29, 2013 or Friday edition of Dainik Kalam). The charter, if analyzed meticulously, contains all that are deemed as essential and this ranges from efficient implementation of Sachar Committee Report to develop the status of Madrasa education and equate it to the status of other elite education systems. What is more, Muslims in India have been asked to cast their votes on this basis of this charter.     

But all these urge a sane brain to think of need of this charter or electoral annunciation. Well, it is not hard to find this out also. Minority votes play imperative roles in several Indian states nowadays and in this era of coalition politics – when it is no longer possible for Congress or BJP to form a one-party government in the Parliament and also with thumping majority– these votes play greater roles. As part of a coalition, support of regional political parties has got to be sought and hence, the largest party in the Parliament has to keep anti-Muslim politics at bay. Isn’t it better to placate Muslims then? Both parties and mentors of Islamic politics in the Indian mainland have comprehended this simple arithmetic with success. Consequently, the Charter of Demands has been introduced prior to the Parliamentary Election. There is nothing to lose sleep also; all are ready to pamper and benefit them – but in exchange of getting Muslim votes in strength.

This novel development or Charter of 20 Demands has brought forth a very pertinent issue. Why are Hindus taken for granted all the time? Are Hindu votes of no value? Votes of other minority communities (2-5% voters) are snubbed always. But Hindus happen to be the majority community in India yet. Do not Hindus have their own demands?  Why have Hindu votes become irrelevant to the indigenous political arena? The problem remains with Hindus only as they have failed pathetically to create their own vote bank. Hindu votes are divided among different political parties and they, in the end, do not have time to listen to Hindus. But the minority or Muslim minority vote bank plays a crucial role to form governments or to create its destiny.  So, this vote bank is protected with utmost care and to please it, immoral and deceitful demands are also accepted. The person or party, as a result, will get the mandate to rule, destruct it for the next 5 years, let alone the freedom to corruption.  Charter of 20 Demands is widely accepted hence even if it can create havoc, as per many.

There is the need of a Hindu awakening and in this contemporary electoral climate, Hindu vote must also be valued. Or else national integrity in India will soon become a thing of the past. Muslims would go on increasing their demands and repeat the task of 1947 once more.
