September 7, 2010 : Yesterday (6th Sept.) evening after Iftar, Muslims assembled in the Deganga Mosque (Basirhat SD, North 24 Parganas) and proceeded to a number of Hindu areas, looted and ransacked many Hindu shops and Hindu temples, severely beat up many Hindus, torched 4 public buses. The life of the whole stretch from Berachapa to Kadamgachi has been frozen.
Shani Temple of Kartickpur and Kali Temple of Deganga Biplabi Colony desecrated and ransacked by the rioting Muslims.
Arup Ghosh, Officer in Charge of Deganga police station is seriously injured by the rampaging Muslims. His head and hand have been fractured. Several other policemen also injured. Police had to fire to control the Muslim mob, but with no effect.
Yesterday at 11 am, the dispute started when some fanatic Muslims started to dig the passage of a Durga Temple in Chattal Pally village which is situated just beside the Deganga Police Station. This Durga Temple is at least 25 year old. In past, Muslims tried many times to stop the Durgapuja. Hindus resisted their ill effort. This Chattal Pally and Deganga P.S. come under the district of North 24 Parganas, and its Parliamentary constituency is Basirhat. In 2009 election, Hazi Nurul Islam of T.M.C. won this constituency defeating long time Communist M.P. Ajay Chakraborty (C.P.I). After this change of power, Hindus of the whole area are facing all types of threat, humiliation, torture and their religious practices are in danger.
When Hindus objected the digging of the Temple passage, Muslims gathered there in large number and started mayhem. Hindus informed the police. Police came and they had to face the jihadi enthusiasm of the Muslims. Officer in Charge injured at that time. Then Muslims threatened that now Roja is going on. After the end of Roja and taking Iftar, they will teach stern lesson to the Hindus. So, after afternoon, Hindus dared not to open their shops on the stretch between Berachapa to Kadamgachhi on the Barasat – Basirhat Road. By this time, large contingent of police and RAF took position. Defying their presence, Muslims gathered in large number in the Deganga Mosque and started looting and destroying the Hindu shops, not in Chattal Pally, but in the big markets of Beliaghata, Deganga and Kartickpur. A big shop of Anil Bangal, a Hindu, has been looted fully among many other shops. Anil Bangal has been seriously injured. More than 25 people have been injured.
Latest position is that Police is not allowing the Hindus to come out of their homes so that they can enquire the damage done by the Muslims and Muslims are roaming freely in front of police force. Overall situation has been worsened. It is alleged that Maqbur Rehman, Mintu Sahaji led the Muslim rioters. It is also alleged that one TMC Hindu leader Ms. Ratna Chowdhury is trying to pressurize police not to take strong steps to arrest the Muslim rampaging mob. The new TMC M.P. Hazi Nurul Islam allegedly influenced the police to remain inactive.
The Muslims are majority in number in the Deganga Block as well as in Basirhat Sub division of North 24 Parganas district. According to 2001 Census report, Muslims were 69.51 percent in Deganga Block. Naturally after nine years, their percentage increased a lot and Hindus in that Block are living a life almost like Pakistan. This North 24 Parganas district, is the largest border district where the highest number of Hindu refugees took shelter after being persecuted in erstwhile East Pakistan and present Bangladesh. In spite of that, the eight Blocks among total 29 of this districts became Muslim majority blocks in 2001 census.
Yesterday’s violence in Deganga has been reported only in the NE Bangla channel of electronic media of West Bengal. All other channels including Star Anand, as always they do, are mum and suppressing the misdeeds of the fanatic Muslims.
As per available information the Rioting Muslims started the violence afresh in the 7th. morning and restricted the entry of any body to the area to smoothen their jehadi activities there. “Hindu Samhati” leaders rushed to the area with “Hindu Existence” (HE) media team to boost up the morale of the fighting Hindu youths there, but blocked by the local Muslims at Golabari point. They are trying hard to reach the spot at any cost. Reports came in that Hindus are not allowed to enter in those areas of Kartickpur and tortured by the Islamists even by checking the genitals.
Today, when contacted with Mr. Jyotiprio Mallik,(+919433446800) State leader and in-charge of TMC of North 24 Pgs District, he told the HE correspondent that Military has been deployed in the area just now about 11.40 am and gradually taking over the control. So far 7 persons are killed in the firing of Military contingent. Mr. Mallik expressed his utter astonishment by the severity of the incident of erecting a disputed fence between Hindu and Muslim holdings. He also told that he was also fearing to enter the area of open swords and fire arms in the hands of fundamentalists. He told that the overall communal situation of the area is very bad now. Md. Mortaza Hossian is the M.L.A. of Deganga Assembly Constituency. As the M.P. and M.L.A. are both of Muslim community, the minority Hindus in this area always face the persecution of majority Muslim here without any redressal.
One Shakuntala (name changed) in the South 24 Pgs was informed in the early morning about the awesome condition of her relatives residing in Kartickpur areas where destruction of Hindu temple and torture upon her relatives were tremendous. She tried to take up the matter to the State TMC leaders to rescue the persecuted Hindus of the Deganga area. When contacted Mr. Partha Chatterjee,(+919831002887) Opposition leader Of WB State Assembly, he cut off the mobile phone hearing some words without any comment. But a responsive Mr. Mukul Roy,(+919830040931) State TMC leader and Central Minister of State of Shipping, stated that the CPIM is doing this nefarious work of communal riot. But when Shakuntala categorically told Mr. Roy that one notorious Hazi Nurul Islam is behind the communal tension, Mr Roy said, ” I know him well. But our first duty is to calm down the tension in favour of the peace loving community,”
Both the TMC and CPIM is trying to take political advantage out of the situation and bye-passing the activities of communal Muslims in the name of restoring the peace and harmony. But the cry of the local Hindus are rejected by all political parties. Now, Hindus are trying to be united to face this Islamic force, irrespective of any political colour.
Now the State authority in Writers’ Building ascertained the military deployment in the Kartickpur area of Deganga and the Bengal electronic media is now flashing the news of Deganga with one casualty out of Communal Clash there.
