Sri Ghosh awared the gathering about Jehadi recruitment in local level by ISI, SIMI and other Islamic wings, the Love Jihad rackets with an unbound channelization of Hindu girls to Muslim community through an illicit & allured love trap, huge Muslim infiltration from Bangladesh and unethical appeasement of Muslims by all the political parties.

In another well attended meeting at Gopal Nagar, near Mashat in Hoogly, HS President Tapan Ghosh said that the Islamic force has gained a good strength in Bengal soil and it is being nurtured by all the political parties of West Bengal. The West Bengal borders are being used by the Islamic fundamentalists as an extended portion or the corridor of Islamic Bangladesh. The situation is very alarming and we feel the torture and severity upon Hindus in the Muslim majority districts in West Bengal. The Jihadi activities in Bengal are growing day by day. We cannot assure no repetition of any 26/11 in this situation. We need and demand drastic action for all these. Dr. Partha Ghosh and Ashis Manna were present in the programme with other dignitaries. Sri Promod Ranjan Kayal of Azad Hind Memorial Centre, from Budge Budge, South 24 Pgs reports that local people at Batanagar paid their homage to Mumbai Martyrs and demanded immediate hanging of Azmal Kasab without any delay.

Mr. Kayal told the Spotlight MediaTeam over telephone that 'Justice delayed, justice denyed.' So, we cannot spoil time any more to hang the prime accused Azmal amir Kasab, the lone Pakistani terrorist captured on the spot on 26/11/2008.
Though all the political parties on West Bengal did not care for the memory of Mumbai 26/11 and the so-called Bengal intellectuals found no rose or candle light for the Mumbai Martyrs, this time the repercussion of Bengal people is pragmatic in mood and high in resolution in the 1st anniversary of 26/11 Mumbai Mayhem.
