    Hindu-muslim riots:Religious structure torched

    Religious structure torched
    By Express News Service - SALEPUR 19th February 2013 10:36 AM
    Tension ran high in Kazihat village under Salepur police limits following torching of a Hindu religious structure late on Sunday night.

    According to reports, a local cultural organisation, Arya Sansrutika Parisad, had constructed a thatched roof room at Kazihat, a Muslim-dominated area under Jairampur gram panchayat in Nischintakoili block in 1985. Since then, members of the organisation were performing ‘Hara Parbati’ puja in the room during Durga Puja. Some miscreants set afire the room on Sunday night.

    Following the incident, irate shopkeepers of Kazihat and adjacent Azad Bazaar on Monday staged a dharna on the spot demanding arrest of the culprits.

    The agitators were pacified after Salepur Tehsildar Rudra Narayan Dash assured them to initiate stringent action against those involved and measures to reconstruct the room. Police personnel have been deployed to avoid any untoward incident in the locality.

    “The local sarpanch had allegedly ordered for demolition of 12 shops in Kazihat recently. The shopkeepers who are yet to be rehabilitated despite assurances staged a road blockade at Kazihat on Saturday, demanding immediate rehabilitation. Their anger may be the cause behind the arson,” said Salepur IIC Biswajit Mohanty.

    At times it seems like India is a tinder box just waiting for someone to light it. Strict action should be taken on those that provoke immaterial of which ethnic or religious group they are from

    In Gandhi's own words...
    There is no doubt in my mind that in the majority of quarrels the Hindus come out second best. My own experience but confirms the opinion that the Musalman as a rule is a bully, and the Hindu as rule is a coward. I have notices this in railways trains, on public roads, and in the quarrels which I have had the privilege of setting. Need the Hindu blame the Musalman for his cowardice?
    Quarrels must break out so long as the Hindus continue to be seized with fear. Bullies are always to be found where there are cowards. The Hindus must understand no one can afford them protection if they go on hugging fear.
    Running away for fear of death, leaving one’s dear ones, temples or music to take care of themselves, is irreligion; it is cowardice. It is not manly, it is unmanly. Non-violence is the virtue of the manly. The coward is innocent of it.
    The remedy against cowardice is not physical culture but the braving of dangers. So long as the parents of the a middle class Hindus, themselves timid, continue to transmit their timidity by keeping their grown-up children in cotton wool, so long will there be the desire to shun danger and run no risks. They will have to dare to leave their children alone. Let them run risks and even at times get killed in so doing. The puniest individual may have a stout heart. The most muscular Zulus cower before English lads. Each village has to find out its stout hearts.
    Cowardice Behind Riots
    These cases (of cowardice) have nothing to do with the inveterate enmity between the Hindus and Musalmans. Where there are fools there are bound to be knaves, where there are cowards there are bound to be bullies, whether they are Hindus or Musalmans. Such cases used to happen even before the outbreak of these communal hostilities. The question here therefore is not how to teach one of the two communities a lesson or how to humanize it, but how to teach a coward to be brave.
    If the thinking sections of both the communities realize the cowardice and folly at the back of the hostilities, we can easily end them. Both have to be brave, both have to be wise. If both or either deliberately get wise, theirs will be the way of non-violence. If both fight and learn wisdom only by bitter experience, the way will be one of violence. Either way there is no room for cowards in the society of men, i.e., in a society which loves freedom. Swaraj is not for cowards.
    Cowardice should no place in the national dictionary.

    It may seem this way to some seeing this from a distance.

    One thing any India watcher must know & remember is ' There are no Coincidences in India".

    Nothing happens by itself and nothing happens without a reason. Prima facie two things stand out

    a) Posturing to show the ruling party in bad light.

    b) Attempt to create space / following prior to the impending elections.

    Riots erupt in Bengal

    Amidst a near-complete media blackout and distressing silence from statutory bodies like the National Human Rights Commission, a serious communal flare up has taken place in South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal, with more than 200 Hindu homes torched and looted in four villages — Naliakhali, Herobhanga, Gopalpur and Goladogra, in the Canning police station area, from the wee hours of February 19. Almost two dozen Hindu shops were fully damaged and looted in Joynagar police station area; many shopkeepers have fled and members of the besieged community have begun to send their womenfolk away.

    Although triggered by a purely local incident, the looming Panchayat elections in the State seem to have given vested interests an opportunity for a show of strength. Competitive communalism is in the air, with the two major political formations fighting to capture the huge Muslim vote in the State.

    By all accounts, the trouble began late in the night of February 18-19 when Maulvi Rohul Kuddus (resident of Ghutiyari Shariff, South 24 Parganas) and Abdul Wahab (resident of village Moujpur, Joynagar) were returning from Jaamtala Haat in Kultali after attending a religious congregation. Maulvi Kuddus was driving a motorcycle when the duo was attacked by unidentified culprits on the Naliakhali main road. Maulvi Rohul Kuddus was shot dead and his aide Abdul Wahab, injured.

    The motive for the murder is unclear. Reports in a prominent newspaper however, claim that the Maulvi was carrying Rs 11.5 lakhs, which was taken away by the assailants. Other sources say that huge unaccounted funds are circulating in the region and are being used to buy unlicensed firearms and ammunition, under the patronage of political parties.

    Bus driver Samir Sen, coming to Canning from the Golabari terminal, spotted the body at around 4:25 am on February 19. He stopped and found that the Maulvi was already dead. His motorcycle was lying on the side of the road. Sen reported the crime to the police at Canning, as did other bus drivers who came that way, but the police were tardy in arriving at the scene and picking up the body. The injured Abdul Wahab escaped and contacted other people.

    As rumours spread, large numbers of Muslims began to descend upon the area in trucks. The headmaster of a local school reportedly incited the mob, and soon Hindu homes began to be attacked from the early hours of February 19. The violence quickly escalated with the police and administration initially at a loss. According to local reports, police officers Anup Samaddar and Anup Ghoash of the Canning police station were seriously injured and two police vehicles torched in the turmoil. The unrest has spread to Sandeshkhali area of North 24 Parganas.

    Hindu Samhati leader Tapan Ghosh, who is monitoring the situation with volunteers, told a local television channel that after the Maulvi’s body was found, Naliakhali village, which was closest to the site of the crime, was attacked and looted, the village temple damaged, and five women molested. As the police party was initially outnumbered, the mob torched homes with impunity, pouring petrol and setting them ablaze in a three hour rampage. Naliakhali villagers claimed they had no knowledge about the murder and the reasons for the attack on them until the police arrived.

    Neighbouring villages were also attacked, Hindus beaten and their shops destroyed. The mob set up roadblocks at several places such as Natunhat, Priyor More (Joynagar ps), Bhangankhali, Hospital More (Basanti ps).

    As the violence escalated, the administration rushed battalions of Combat Force and Rapid Action Force to bring the situation under control. Police from Bidhannagar and Howrah were also deployed with water cannons. But the peace is still fragile as several dozen truckloads of people from various parts of Kolkata such as Park Circus, Rajabazar, Metiaburz and Garden Reach, are heading towards Canning subdivision.

    The forthcoming Panchayat elections in the State seem to be the backdrop for both the murder and the violence. Both the CPM and the Trinamool Congress are determined to monopolise the Muslim vote. Muslims comprise nearly 30 per cent of the population of the State according to official statistics, though informed sources put the actual figure much higher on account of the ceaseless infiltration from Bangladesh.

    According to the Census 2001, the district-wise population of Muslims in West Bengal is Murshidabad (63.67 per cent); Malda(49.72 per cent); North Dinajpur (47.36 per cent); Birbhum (35.08 per cent); South 24 Parganas (33.34 per cent); Nadia (25.41 per cent); Howrah(24.44 per cent); Cooch Behar (24.24 per cent); North 24 Parganas(24.22 per cent); South Dinajpur (24.01 per cent); Kolkata (20.27 per cent);Bardhaman (19.78 per cent); Hooghly (15.14 per cent); Midnapore(11.32 per cent); Jalpaiguri (10.78 per cent); Bankura (7.51 per cent); Purulia(7.12 per cent) and Darjeeling (5.31 per cent).

    The infiltrators appear to be organising themselves and ganging up with local co-religionists to challenge the majority community and change the demography of some target districts.

    Should Hindu families feel compelled to retreat from the area, an Assam-like situation could develop in Bengal as well, as illegal Bangladeshis align with native elements and to swamp the State with the benign connivance of political parties.

    They are the law makers. No way they are going to change.

    This is result of bloody vote bank politics.

    Fake Ration cards and Voter ID's have resulted into such situation, where now it is really difficult to control.

    ideally a secular country/govt should not appease minority or majority, but in india we are yet to reach that kind of perfection, what we do is " equal appeasement " of minority as well as majority. .congress and other so called secular parties appease minority while bjp appease the majority.. that's how we balance it in india.. but thankfully there is a constitution and a supreme court in india so no party or govt can go too far with their religious politics.. They have to play it safe with in some limits.As we our democracy mature, Older generation giving way to new educated generation, this minor imperfections also will be corrected.
