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.
