PRESS RELEASE----Hindu Samhati leaders arrested after attack by 6,000 strong Muslim mob in West Bengal

jun 13th, 2008

no news of this in any media, but since it's hindus being murdered by mohammedans in a communist-run state, it is highly likely it is true and that the media are suppressing it.

is this another godhra in the making?

these bangladeshi mohammedan illegal invaders are making life miserable. they need to be rounded up and expelled back to their sinking country. of course the kkkangress and the communists have given them the signal to do ethnic cleansing and terrorism in india.

The Friends of Hindu Samhati, USA unequivocally condemns today's gruesome attack on the Hindu Samhati training camp at Ganga Sagar (West Bengal) by a murderous mob of local Muslims, at least 6000-7000 strong, starting Thursday (June 12, 2008).


Ganga Sagar is a very reknowned Hindu Tirtha Kshetra (Place of Pilgrimage) where the sacred Ganga River has a confluence with the Bay of Bengal. Ganga Sagar is located on the western edge of the Sunderban Delta on Sagar Island. At the edge of Sagar town - adjacent to the beach - is the ancient temple dedicated to Kapil Muni, the sage responsible for initiating the chain of events that ultimately resulted in Mother Ganga descending to the earth from heaven and giving mankind an opportunity to wash away its sins in her pure water. The earliest mention of this sacred place is found in the Mahabharata where a learned sage explains to Bhishma the significance of taking a dip at the confluence of Ganga Sagar. Millions of Hindu pilgrims visit this holy place all year round to take a dip in the ho,y Ganges, particularly during the Kumbha Mela and Makara Sankranti festivities.


Since this morning (Thursday, 12 June, 2008), Hindu Samhati had started conducting a training camp and workshop on the current socio-political scenario to 180 men, women and children in the peaceful and serene surroundings of Ganga Sagar.


Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh, the National Convenor of Hindu Samhati is conducting the main sessions of this camp. Other eminent people and local notables are also present. Everything went on smoothly until this evening, when suddenly the camp building was surrounded by a murderous mob of about 6000-7000 local Muslims bent on mayhem. The Muslim attackers were well-prepared and have been throwing gas cylinders and petrol bombs (molotov cocktails) and kept on attacking incessantly for a few hours, to incinerate the whole camp. The entire camp building has been reduced to ashes. All 180 of our camp attendees (a large number of them women and children) and 15 policemen are trapped inside this burning camp along with our dear leader Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh.


Already 14-15 attendees of the camp have been injured in the carnage, and at least 7 of them are in very critical condition and are not expected to survive. The names of the critically wounded include: Subodh Kundu, Bivas Mondal, Gopinath Biswas, Prasenjit Sardar and Gautam Halder, apart from 2 others that could not be identified because of serious facial burn injuries.


Nine camp attendees are still missing and may have been kidnapped by the Muslim mob. Their names are: Gautam Mondal, Kartick Biswas, Ram Shil, Palash Roy, Gopal Dolui, Piyush Senapati, Ashok Das, Shankar Nandi and Subhash Roy. We are very apprehensive about their well being.


The local police-station (Thana) has unfortunately sent in a small posse of 15 policemen who are totally inadequate for resisting such a huge Jehadi mob armed to the teeth. The police could not control the mob of Muslims even after firing several rounds.

As of Friday morning (June 13, 2008), as per the recent information received by us, the assault by the Muslim mob at Hindu Samhati campsite in Gangasagar is still on, although the intensity has abated a little bit. Some more police force has reached the trouble spot, though the large force required to subdue a mob of this size and temperament is nowhere in sight. A recent update by phone from the camp is that along with the 14-15 attendees who were injured, 2 policemen have also been seriously injured due to the assault by the Muslim mob. Scores of other attendees to the camp has sustained minor injuries in this most cowardly assault including the National Convener of Hindu Samhati, Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh. Thankfully his injuries are not serious.

Apart from throwing petrol bombs to incinerate the camp building, the Muslim mob also tried to breach the wall by exploding cooking gas cylinders against it. Failing to break into the camp, the rampaging Muslim mob has attacked and seriously damaged some nearby houses of the local Hindus. They have also seriously damaged and set fire to an adjoining Kali temple and a 'Yatri Nivas' (Travellers' Lodge) run by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad. The fireball attacks have slightly abated but the vicious threats and stone pelting continues – all attuned to the collective chants of both 'naara-e-takbir, allahu akbar' (allah is the Greatest) and 'inquilab zindabad' (Long Live the Revolution).

Sagar island at the Ganga Sagar – the confluence of the Ganga and the Bay of Bengal – is one of the holiest pilgrimages of India, where millions of Hindus from all over India and the world gather during the 'Makar Sankranti' (Winter Solstice) for the 'Punya Snan' (Holy Bath) every year. If a peaceful Hindu gathering can be assaulted with such viciousness and impunity in one of the most sacred Hindu sites of pilgrimage, one shudders to think what lies in store for the Hindus of West Bengal a few years hence.

In a travesty of justice, instead of arresting the attackers, the Police in West Bengal have slapped a non-bailable arrest warrant against Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh and 15 Hindu Samhati activists. The concocted charges against them are listed as being: "Incitement and Instigation for Rioting" and "Disruption of Communal Harmony".

As per the latest news received from the ground, Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh and 15 Hindu Samhati activists have been framed and arrested for inciting communal disharmony by Kakdwip Thana (Police Station) in West Bengal.

1) The Friends of Hindu Samhati, USA strongly protests this outrageous attack on a peaceful, indoor religious function that was held behind closed doors. There was no provocation for this vicious assault nor was any outdoor procession held at the location. It is pitiable that the police could not provide security to its peace loving citizens and is instead insisting on closing the camp down.

2) We strongly urge the police and the local administration to arrest all the perpetrators of this heinous crime immediately and provide security to continue the camp at a nearby, alternate location.

3) We deeply deplore the travesty of justice in West Bengal and appeal to the police and the local administration to remove the framed charges and release Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh and 15 Hindu Samhati activists immediately.

4) We request all friends and readers in India and abroad to call up the Indian administration to inquire about this incident. At least, they will know that people still care about justice and peace in India. The Numbers to Call are:

a) District Magistrate, South 24 Parganas
Phone: 033-24793713

Religious clashes erupt in India

By Subir Bhaumik
BBC News, Calcutta


At least 40 people have been injured in religious clashes on a remote delta island in India's eastern state of West Bengal, police say.

Fifteen of those injured in the clashes on Sagar island, at the confluence of the Ganges and the sea, were policemen.

Supporters of the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh(RSS) and local Muslim villagers clashed after the RSS set up a camp in the area.

This caused unease amongst Muslims, who have a large population on the island.

The RSS is active throughout India and is the ideological fountainhead of India's main opposition party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The Hindu group is trying to expand its organisation in West Bengal, particularly in the Muslim-dominated border districts, where they say illegal migrants from Bangladesh are slowly becoming a majority.

Wave of unrest

Mohsin Ali, a local resident, said that supporters of the RSS had raised "provocative slogans" in the area.

The RSS however blamed Bengal's ruling Marxists for instigating the attacks.

RSS leader Bijoy Addya told the BBC that the Marxists provoked the local Muslims into attacking the RSS supporters.

"We had conducted the training camp peacefully. But from the very beginning, we sensed a conspiracy to attack us and that finally happened," Mr Addya said.

But Marxist leader and state minister Kanti Ganguly denied the RSS charge.

"The RSS is a provocative organisation and if they raise slogans against a community, some reaction is bound to happen. There were clashes and now they have been controlled," Mr Ganguly said.

West Bengal has seen frequent violence and shutdowns recently.

On Thursday, more than 30 people were injured and the army had to be called out to control clashes between Bengali and Nepali residents around the town of Siliguri.

Extract from Fire in the northeast by Tarun Vijay, 14 Jun 2008

Just two days ago, a camp of a Hindu organisation near Ganga Sagar, a pilgrim centre of great significance, was attacked by a communally charged crowd. The result was that the state govt. accused the victims themselves of fomenting trouble and none of the attackers was arrested.

So which part of India is safe and can be visited for a pilgrimage and a Bharat dekho tour? From Kashmir to Kamakhya (Assam) and Jaipur to Darjeeling, Jihadis and Maoists have left their ugly marks. Manipur, famous for heavenly lakes and Krishna's legacy, is in the grip of anti-India, anti-anything Hindu terror outfits. So is the condition in Nagaland and Tripura. Are they going the way of Malaysia – another place which has seen anti-Hindu repression by the state?

Beyond Darjeeling the entire northeast is a region of enchanting natural panorama and religious pilgrimage. But you can't even think of going there for a holiday. Recently a new wave of killings was reported from the Karbi Anglong area of Assam. An organization known as the Black Widows killed 11 labourers and workers on May 15 in the North Cachar hills. This was said to be in retaliation against the army's action that saw 12 Black Widow terrorists eliminated. The same day, Black Widow gunmen killed 10 truck drivers who were bringing daily supplies to the interior areas.

Communal violence spread in West Bengal

Posted June 14th, 2008 by Tarique Anwar

Ganga Sagar: In a fresh incident of communal violence, at least 40 people are reported to have been injured in Ganga Sagar island in West Bengal on 13th June. The injured included 15 policemen.

According to reports, clashes between RSS workers and local Muslims erupted soon after a training camp organized by the Hindu extremist organization ended in the area. Reports say that RSS workers were making provocative sloganeering against Muslims and Quran. It is said that RSS and Bajrang Dal had already made preparations to cause harm to Muslims. Although RSS and other Hindu communal organizations have spread their influence in other Indian states, West Bengal has until recently been aloof from such incidents.

President of West Bengal Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Maulana Siddiqullah Chaudhary have indirectly accused the CPM-led state government for the violence. He said the communalists were given an opportunity to perpetrate terror against Muslims in order to augment the weakening grip of communist party on Muslim community. The CPM is apprehensive of losing mandate in coming election on this account. About 2.5 lakh Muslims reside in the island; it turns out to be 50% of the total population. CPM is anxious to attract Muslims of the state as general elections are round the corner. But RSS has become equally active here. On Thursday, there were clashes between Bengalese and Nepalese in Siliguri City injuring about 30 persons, after which the army was deployed.

RSS, however, said that it held the training camp peacefully. They said that they feared such eventuality from the very beginning of the programme. RSS is said to be now busy in penetrating its roots in Muslim dominated border areas of West Bengal where, it claims, Bangladeshis are coming in illegally. Mohsin Ali, a local inhabitant, says RSS supporters had resorted to provocative sloganeering. On the other hand, RSS has accused the Marxist government had incited Muslims to attack RSS men. But rejecting RSS allegations, the Marxist leader and a minister in the state government Kanti Ganguli said RSS is a provoking organization.
