Minority Hindus in certain pockets of Muslim majority Murshidabad District are under a siege today. The trouble started on July 10, 2009 in Beldanga Sub Division of that District when certain criminal Muslim elements let loose unprovoked violence against the Hindus.

Many Hindus were killed and battered. Their shops were burnt. Women were molested. Till yesterday evening an embargo was placed on media personnel visiting the riot torn area for reporting and news coverage.
In these columns yesterday (Please see Part 1 of this article below) I had mentioned that the anti-Hindu CPI(M) Government in West Bengal today is re-enacting in Murshidabad District the same macabre communal drama of DIRECT ACTION of the evil duo M/s Mohammad Ali Jinnah and H.S Suhravardy — I am referring to the carnage of Hindus in Calcutta City which took place on August 16, 1946. The stage for the gruesome Calcutta killing was set by the Premier of Bengal H.S Suhravardy who masterminded the Hindu Genocide. The Government of Bengal remained silent for two days and watched the mass killing of Hindus with a Nero-like impassivity. The British Governor F Burrows, sat like a marble statue in his Chambers, ‘seeing no evil’ and ‘hearing no evil’. Burrows and Suhravardy were acting in criminal collusion. When the Sikhs of Calcutta were provoked to come out into the streets with their flashing swords to give protection to their defenceless and abandoned Hindu brethren, the tide of killings took a different turn. With the Sikhs and the Hindus coming together in self-defence against the Islamic marauders the tide was turned with equal fury against the murderous Muslim bullies. The Governor and the Prime Minister, seeing that the Muslims were now at the receiving end, now felt the ‘supreme call of duty’ and felt constrained to call the Army to quell the riots.
The number of men, women and children slaughtered on the streets of Calcutta City was over 10,000 and the seriously maimed and injured 15,000 and those rendered utterly penniless and homeless 100,000. A British correspondent of Statesman, Kim Khristen, wrote: ‘I have a stomach made strong by the experience of war, but the war was never like this. This is not a riot. It needs a word found in mediaeval history, a fury. Yet ‘fury’ sounds spontaneous and there must have been some deliberation and organisation to see this fury on the way.’ The culpability of Suhravardy in this sordid criminal operation was laid bare by the local Army Commander and the Chief Secretary of the Bengal Government before Lord Wavell, the Viceroy of India, who visited Calcutta in the last week of August 1946.
Like the Suhravardy Government of Undivided Bengal in August 1946, the CPI(M) Government in West Bengal today is even more virulently anti-Hindu. Many of the Marxist cadres consist of jihadi Muslims who are in league with Islamic terrorists. The same situation obtains in Malappuram District, Kerala. There also there is a marriage of political convenience between the CPI (M) and the two Muslim terrorist parties like the NDF and the PDP. Continuous violence is let loose by these elements against the innocent Hindu population in Malapuram District. This is done with the full political approval and administrative support of the Marxist Government of Kerala.
In these columns In a series of three articles titled ‘CPI(M) Led Islamic Terrorism at Ganga Sagar’ published on 19, 20 and 23 June, 2008, I had observed as follows: “The Hindus of India and even more so, the Hindus of West Bengal and Kerala, have now come to know that the leaders and the members of the CPI(M) are their greater enemies than the Islamic terrorists. Wherever they are in power, they are determined to put even the anti-Hindu and anti-Sanatana Dharma record of famous Islamic marauders in History like Mohammed of Ghazni, Mohammed of Ghori, Balban, Allaudin Khilji, Babar, Aurangazeb, Nadir Shah and Ahmed Shah Abdali to everlasting ignominious shame. It is against this background that Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh and the Hindus of Bengal have come forward in a determined and united manner to establish Hindu Samhati to protect the Hindus of Bengal against the murderous attacks of CPI(M) Party men and their Islamic terrorist allies. With an incredibly tremendous enthusiasm, a new Hindu Social forum called ‘HINDU SAMHATI’ was launched in Kolkata at the Bharat Sabha Hall (erstwhile Indian Association Hall) on the 14 February 2008. Belying all expectations the venue overflowed with supporters and activists and many willingly endured the entire 4 hour long session standing on their feet as seats were already filled up. The session was convened by Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh and was conducted by Sri Upananda Brahmachari. Senior and prominent Hindu leaders from all over India attended this launch to address the gathering and to extend their support and solidarity towards the cause for which Sri Tapan Ghosh and his compatriots have instituted this forum.
’I spoke over the telephone, yesterday to Tapan Kumar Ghosh, President of the Hindu Samhati, Calcutta. He gave me the following message regarding the policy of Muslim appeasement at all costs followed by the West Bengal Government.
‘A fresh chapter of minority (Muslim) appeasement has been opened by the ruling Marxists of West Bengal after their debacle in the recent Parliament Election. Now the appeasement is not barely a promise. It is getting to turn into a reality. Though the Constitution of India does not provide space for any sort of reservation along religious lines, the government and other political parties together can not resist the temptation to extend reservation facilities in the government services by any means. Tax payers’ money is being poured in the name of providing education to the minorities. Despite the fact that reservation for any religious community is not entertained by the Constitution of India, government of West Bengal is set to open special morning session in the three leading colleges of Kolkata exclusively for Muslim students. After the electoral punch received from the Muslims in the recent Parliament election which evidently laid the basis of an unprecedented disaster of omnipotent Marxists in Bengal, the rulers are now determined to regain the chunk of Muslim vote with fanatic desperation. Even a replacement of our comical Chief Minister Mr. Buddhadev Bhattacharjee with a new unknown Muslim personality might also be a part of their desperation in near future. Then the circle will be full. Mamata Banerjee, the leader of opposition, who claimed distinguished notoriety for being a drama queen in the past, is another emblem of Muslim appeasement in our unfortunate state. This trail of events is being seen as a prelude of an ever increasing demands of Muslims that will be raised in the next years, however illicit and illegitimate, and will finally culminate in the formation of another MUSLIMSTAN in the subcontinent.’
On the 1st Anniversary of its birth, on 14th February 2009, the activist of HINDU SAMHATI, under the heroic leadership of Sri Tapan Ghosh, took the following Oath at Shraddhananda Park, Kolkata.
- We will not tolerate any displacement of any Hindu from Hindustan.
- We shall not allow any injustice, torture and humiliation of Hindus.
- The dignity of Hindu Mothers and sisters is much more valuable than our lives.
- We will save the dignity of them all even at the cost of our lives.
- We must not allow our sisters to convert to other religions.
- We will protect our God & Goddesses and their Temples at all costs in spite of all terror and however long and hard the road may be.
- We shall never allow the ingress of Bangladeshi Infiltrators in this land.
- We will struggle for total Justice for all the Hindus of Bengal till our last breath.
- Never shall we compromise with any injustice, even we be beheaded. We shall not retreat. We shall never surrender. Never!!!
- Never shall we bend our Heads. Never shall we tolerate humiliation. We shall follow the Sermon of Lord Sri Krishna to Arjuna in the Bhagabad Gita.
Swami Pradiptanandaji (Kartik Maharaj)
Let me now go back to the scene of anti-Hindu riots in Murshidabad District. Tapan Ghosh told me that the battered Hindus of Beldanga town are fearing that the famous President of Bharat Sevashram Sangha, the highly revered Swami Pradiptanandaji (Kartik Maharaj) may be attacked by communal Muslims. The Swamiji is now away from his Ashram; he has gone on a pilgrimage to Mansarovar-Kailas. He is expected to return in 5-6 days. Bharat Sevashram Sangha is a Hindu charitable non-governmental organisation in India. It was founded in 1917 by Acharya Srimat Swami Pranavanandaji Maharaj. The Sangha has hundreds of ashrams in India and other countries including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Bangladesh. It has initiated several missions to African countries, Malaysia, and Indonesia; monks from the Sangha have accompanied United Nations delegations to Syria and Lebanon.
The Hindus of Murshidabad District are concerned about the safety of Swami Pradiptanandaji (Kartik Maharaj). It is understood that some Muslim terrorist elements are planning to assassinate him when he returns from his pilgrimage. Hindu leaders of the area have expressed the view that the Government of West Bengal should take immediate steps to give total police protection to this Swamiji. Otherwise, he may meet the same fate as Swami Laxmananda Saraswati of Khandmal in Orissa who was killed in August 2008.
The fears of the Hindus of the area about the physical safety of Swami Pradiptanandaji (Kartik Maharaj) do not seem to be unfounded. On October 31, 2008, two terrorist organisations (HUJI-B AND SIMI) sent a threatening letter to Swami Pradiptanandaji, warning him and the Hindus of the area to desist from participating in the Dugra Puja celebrations. In terms of Talipanization, Murshidabad District today seems to have become a part of Islamic Bangladesh now. Both the Central Government and the Government of West Bengal must take immediate action to give full protection to this Swamiji.
