Resurgent Hindu Community in Howrah Resists Valiantly

The
religious persecution on the Hindu community has been unabated in the
Muslim majority nation of Bangladesh, but the same gruesome incidents
are happening in West Bengal state of India as well.

In
Chak Kashi area of Chengail in Howrah district, a major communal
flareup was created by an Islamic activist group. In the Jute Mill
area, during the Muslim Muharram procession on 8 January afternoon,
these activists attacked Hindu religious places and residential areas,
leading to utter chaos and disorder.

The virulent and
sinister activist mob desecrated the revered Hindu deities in Shani
temple and Hanuman temple. The Hindu community resisted courageously
and the Muslim zealots were countered and beaten black and blue.

Over
ten Hindu-owned shops and homes were set on fire by the religious
Islamists. The District in charge (DM) is Khalil Ahmed, a Muslim. The
situation is tense and curfew has been clampled in the area, and a huge
police contingent including Rapid Action Force, a special Indian elite
police group, has been deployed in the area to terrorize local Hindus
so that they can not protest or publicize this inhumane event.
