rizwanur was murdered by mullahs because he wanted to convert out of mohammedanism. but all the blame is put on the police and his wife's hindu family.
here the police are attacking shaw's family and threatening them, but of course the ELM is completely silent.
why? answer: mohammedans can get away with anything in manmohan singh's dhimmiland. 500 mohammedans being killed is a 'holocaust' but 1,000 hindus being raped, butchered, disemboweled, and 500,000 hindus being ethnically cleansed from jammu and kashmir is of no consequence.

Another inter-faith couple in eye of storm
Saugar Sengupta | Kolkata
The Kolkata Police seems to have forgotten everything and learnt nothing from the infamous Rizwanur Rehman murder case. The force has now zeroed in on a new couple to repeat the misfortune. Unlike Rizwanur, this time the man is a Hindu and his wife, a Muslim.
Ramashankar Shaw, a Corporation employee and resident of Belgachia in north Kolkata, had tied the knot with Mehtab Khatoon, his neighbour on July 14, 2006. The couple managed to keep the marriage under wraps until the wife decided to leave her house to live with her parents-in-law.
According to Ramashankar, his father-in-law Mustakim Khan lodged a case of kidnapping at the Tala police station and allegedly hired Sub-Inspector Bashir Khan to issue threats to the Shaws' to send the woman back to her parents.
Moreover, when the couple refused to submit valid documents proving their marriage, a group of policemen raided the Shaws' house and allegedly picked up Ramashankar's mother and brother Umashankar. The police refused to release them until the couple surrendered before the police.
"We have been on the run since September 3," Ramashankar said.
"In fact, my brother Jamal might get us killed whenever we return," Mehtab Khatoon said. The Khans have allegedly hired a gangster from Metiabruz area to force the Shaws' to send Mehtab back. The gangster, the Shaws' claim, has all the support from the police.
Though we have submitted a written statement on our marriage along with the supporting documents, the police have refused to act, Mehtab complained.
According to Umashankar, the police have violated the common code of conduct by asking a woman, in this case his mother, to personally appear at the police station when the police have to interrogate a woman at a place of her choice. Not only this, like in the Rizwanur case, the police have also violated the Supreme Court's directive to help and not harass couples marrying outside their cast or religion, he said.
When The Pioneer contacted senior officials of the Lal Bazaar police headquarters, they refused to comment on the issue saying that the Kolkata Police has launched a Public Grievances Cell where people can register their complaints against any police officer or police station.
