Hindu School Girl Raped, Murdered in Basirhat

Hindus Attacked, Set Fire to Muslim Culprit’s House Before Police
Champapukur in Basirhat is standing in stunned silence and utter grief at the moment – dead body of Aditi Bhattacharya (age 12), Hindu school girl of Class Six (in Champapukur Girls’ High School), missing for the last three days, has been found in a nearby pond. Hindus in the vicinity are certain that Azgar Ali Mollah, infamous Muslim culprit involved in women trafficking for years, is solely responsible behind this ghastly crime; his house was attacked and fired.
Police has arrested Azgar Ali Mollah and four members of his family in connection with the murder.
The finding of Aditi’s dead body, on November 9, 2012, led to a fury in the whole of Champapukur in Basirhat and also its vicinity. According to police, the teenage Hindu girl was strangulated and initial investigation suggests that a few persons were involved in the crime. However, Hindus in the area are sure that Aditi was raped first and murdered afterwards. Even if police has refused to comment in this regard, their strange silence and presence of high-ranking police and administrative officials in the village to quell any form of communal clashes strengthens Hindus’ suspicion.
It has come to knowledge, Aditi was missing from last Tuesday; her father, Ganesh Bhattacharya, after searching her hither and thither for hours, lodged a formal complaint in P.S. Basirhat. And on Friday, in the morning, villagers perceived the dead body of Aditi in a small pool of water before the residence of Azgar Ali Mollah. Even if police team from P.S. Basirhat reached the spot soon, Hindus stopped them from seizing the dead body. They had a unanimous demand – unless the Muslim culprit was arrested, police would not take over the Hindu girl’s dead body.
All these led to a series of clashes between Hindus and police.  And before the police team, house of Azgar was attacked and ignited by Hindus.
The situation was brought under control only after Ananda Sarkar, SDPO, reached the spot with a large police contingent and assured Hindus of a thorough and unbiased enquiry.  Aditi’s dead body was taken for post-mortem afterwards.
As per locals, Azgar Ali Mollah has been associated (long) with women trafficking and helping illegal migration of Bangladeshi laborers to India.

Cow smuggling pushing Hindus close to death in Swarupnagar, Basirhat

Hindus have to struggle to exist

Hindus inhabiting Swarupnagar, Sub-division: Basirhat, District: 24 Paraganas (North) are having two options at this moment – it’s either to leave the area mutely (without speaking a word) or to wage a do-or-die struggle against Muslim cow smugglers (hell-bent to erase the least Hindu identity in the vicinity too) and their benefactors including local Islamists and administration. It may come as a rude shock to Hindus crowding urban centers in Bengal and rest of India but crude truth can’t be quashed for the eternity.

How are Hindus dwelling in India-Bangladesh border area at the moment?  In a nutshell – they are out of the frying pan into the fire and the (recent) horrific happenings in areas under P.S. Swarupnagar exemplify their position best.

If you want to know more, please go and ask Kalu Ghosh and Debu Ghosh, two brothers living in Baltighoshpara, P.S. Swarupnagar, Sub-division: Basirhat, District: 24 Paraganas (North).  As their patience was on the brink of collapse, Ghosh brothers protested strongly against smuggling of cows but they were thrashed brutally by Trinamool Congress activists (along with cow smugglers) in Baltibazar. Cow smugglers, later, ravaged their thatched huts too.

Robin Roy, Hindu individual residing village: Koijari, P.S. Swarupnagar, shares the same fate as well. Cow smugglers, all Islamists, use the lane before his house for an easy transportation and at each time, they do not leave an opportunity to harm Robin’s household (in any way). But when he protested recently and asked the smugglers to stop it, he was attacked just then and slashed severely. Hindu women in his family were also not spared; cow smugglers attempted to rape them but the situation was saved as a large number of Hindus hearing the noise (women raised an alarm) rushed to the spot.      

Arindam Bagchi, another Hindu living in village: Mallikpur, P.S. Swarupnagar, raised a vehement protest against this intolerable smuggling of cows from different parts of India across the border. Arindam was beaten so heavily that his family members were forced to take him to a nearby hospital.

The said incidents are not singular but are happening on a regular basis while the police and administration, BSF and human rights organizations stand as completely indifferent. BSF, in a way, can be termed as least culpable following their helplessness (thanks to government order) but the despised nexus among others have become the greatest adversary to Hindus in Swarupnagar.

And the human rights organizations (governed by Communist or Left-of-centre ideologies) never miss a chance to raise allegations of human rights violations whenever BSF adopts tough measures against infiltrators from Bangladesh.

Hindus have to wage vigorous struggles to exist in Swarupnagar.
