A day after the Supreme Court of India rescheduled the dates of Panchayet Election, 2013 in West Bengal and directed that it be held in five phases from July 11, (11, 15,19, 22 and 25th July)  the ruling Trinamool Congress on Saturday said it was contemplating to appeal in the  Supreme Court to hold the panchayet polls in West Bengal before Ramzan, only to appease the Muslim vote Bank in West Bengal. The fasting (Roja) of Ramzan will start from 10 July according to Islamic calender.

“We abide by the order of the Honourable Supreme Court regarding the five-phase election. But, we are thinking of filing an appeal in the Supreme Court to complete the election process before 10 July when the Ramzan month starts,” party MP and lawyer Kalyan Bandhopadhay and Urban Development minister Firhad Hakim told a press conference.

They said that they had received many representations from the Muslim community conveying that it would cause inconvenience if the elections were held during Ramzan.

As a matter of fact, apprehending the Muslim resentments, the State Govt of West Bengal and ruling party TMC are trying hard to move in Supreme Court on Monday (1 July 2013), if not any hazards come further.

Eight hard core Muslim organisations organised a meeting in the State office of Jamat-e Islami Hind at Lenin Sarani (Dharmatala Street) to make a strategy to dismantle the election schedule with in Ramzan time frame as made by Supreme Court of India for the five phase Gram Panchayet Election in West Bengal.

The aggrieved Muslims have planned to give a deputation to the State Election Commission on Monday with a huge rally starting from Par Circus Seven Point Crossing. Abdul Momin, the  Asstt. Secretary of All Bengal Minority Council told that they had already sent a letter to the President of India to hold the Panchayet Election before or after Ramzan celebration.

A furious Taha Siddique of Furfura Sariff  has given a warning to all concern to stop panchayet election within Ramzan.

Today on Sunday (30 June),  some Muslim organisations holds a rally from Birla Planetarium to register their protest against panchayet election within Ramzan timings.

CPIM leader Razzak Molla, TMC Leader Firhad Hakim, PDCI Leader Siddikullah Chowdhury and other Muslim leaders expressed their anguish that the Muslims will not be able to cast their votes fully if not the schedule of election is not changed.

On the otherhand, Rahul Sinha, the state president of BJP says that there is election in Kuwait, a Muslim state on 29th July 2013 as scheduled. While a Muslim state like Kuwait holds election within Ramzan, how it is not possible in India’s state West Bengal?

Mohammad Kamrujjaman, General Secretary of All Bengal Minority Council opined that they will move to Court if not the polling dates are not changed.

“Yesterday we said to the honourable Supreme Court kindly do not fix up the date during the Ramzan month. With great respect to the Supreme Court we are accepting the order that has been passed regarding the five phases of election. There is no dilly-dally in that matter,” Bandhopadhay said.

He said that that the state had a Muslim population of more than 35 per cent and there were 45,000 to 50,000 candidates belonging to the minority community, who would be inconvenienced if the polls were held during Ramzan.

Asked whether the appeal would be filed by the state government or the Trinamool Congress, Bandhopadhay replied, “We are in the process of thinking. It will be decided.”

Both Banerjee and Hakim, meanwhile, launched an attack on state election commissioner Meera Pandey. “The conspiracy has been hatched by the (state election) commissioner. She is not interested in holding the elections. She is more interested in going to the court. She is partial,” said Banerjee.

But, Smt Meera Pandey, State Election Commissioner told that they did not skipped the matter of polling dates with in Ramzan in the course of arguments in the Supreme Court and the matter was also referred by the state government also. After hearing all sides the apex court rescheduled the polling dates with the deployments of security etc. Now, it is final and mandatory to abide by all concerned. She also mentioned that the Govt offices and Govt proceedings are not kept closed anyway in the time of Ramzan.

Now the question is very much evident that how a secular country like Bharat (India) can indulge such a pampering of a single minority community, only to keep vital the Muslim Vote Bank. The other minorities are no one’s children.

Religion is so far segregated by the so called secular parties of India. But, they are trying to give reservation, concession, free hand to the fundamentalist Muslims in many ways. This double faced  activism by the politicians will drag a new political Jihad in India in near future. Mamata Banerjee, Akhilesh Yadav, Ajmal Khan, Owaisi brothers and others may be considered the champions of Muslim Supremacy in India, but they are the real destroyers of the Hindu texture of India which is the basic foundation of ‘Indian democracy’ and ‘unity in diversity’. The culpable Islamic supremacy does not contain any democracy or free society in any part of the globe.

If the Panchayet Election in West Bengal, 2013 is rescheduled again by the Supreme Court any further due to any religious ground as demanded by the fanatic Muslims, it will create a new era for a certain Islamic Change of Bharat, say another partition of India as a greatest threat or challenge before us.

Obviously,  we are not opposing any Muslim rituals or practice. But, we should not agree with the Muslim mentality to challenge the majority decision or to surface the bossing of a minority authority over the majority in every foot step. Why the 35% Muslims in West Bengal or 21% Muslims in India are so important than the rest majority Hindus in every yard stick?

Don’t Change Panchayet Election Schedule for month long Ramzan. Religion should not be State Affair. Muslims can be safely follow or practice their religion and ritual by not hampering the state affairs. We should be strict enough to perform our Raj Dharma (State Principals) without any bias and favour to anybody.

Today they are demanding reschedule of the Election dates, tomorrow they will demand the change of all schedules of Indian Constitution and Sanatan Bharatiya (Indian) systems of India in order to establish an Unique Islamic pattern here. Please understand it. Now, Protest or perish.
