West Bengal: Muslim goons vandalize Harinaam Yagna

This is a report sent in to IndiaFacts from the spot. 

When: 24 March 2014, around 11:30 A.M.

Where:  Sonakania Dorjipara, Habra Police limits, North 24 Parganas district, West Bengal.

Incident: A public function of Harinaam Sankirtan Yagna (chanting of the name of Lord Hari or Vishnu) spread over four days was undertaken by an organization named Naam Yajno Samity, whose president is Gopesh Ghosh. 24 March was the last day of the Yagna, which would culminate in distributing prasad–food, which was cooked for about 1000 devotees.

At about 11:30 A.M., a Muslim vendor started selling beef which he was carrying in a bucket on his cycle. The devotees took notice of this and informed the matter to the committee of the programme. Then Gopesh Ghosh went to the beef-vendor and requested him to stop this act and leave the venue. The vendor refused upon which an argument developed. Very soon, a mob of Muslims came to the aid of the beef-vendor and the scene turned confrontational. This mob was led by Rafikul Mondal alias Bhola, Mafidul Mondal and Ismail.

The mob vandalized the entire venue and arrangements of the Yagna, and spoiled the food. It also attacked the devotees. In the melee, Gopesh Ghosh was seriously injured with a skull fracture and a massive wound to his back. Other Hindus too suffered injuries of varying degrees.

A police contingent arrived on the spot led by 2nd Officer of Habra police station. The Muslim mob attacked the contingent with brutal force damaging their vehicles. A brick hurled by them fractured the skull of 2nd Officer Prafulla Kumar Shaw.

Outcome: The Habra Police registered a case against 16 miscreants but haven’t arrested a single one of them. The TMC leader of the district and state cabinet minister Jyotipriya Mallick visited the area. After he left, the same Rafikul Mondal began a fresh wave of terrorizing the local Hindus, and abusing Hindu women in filthy language.

The scared Hindus took out a 15-member delegation led by Dilip Biswas to the Habra police station to lodge a complaint against Rafikul. However, the police refused to take down the complaint but the station in charge, Mainak Banerjee gave verbal assurance of safety.

As usual, no media house has reported the incident.

    I am tired of hearing these news. We, Hindus, are good for nothing. There is no unity. Then, how can we expect the minister of MLA ever hear our voices. TMC is not IUML. But TMC minister is doing nothing means what? They never bother about these Hindus. Whatever they do, then we will vote to them only, for which we will say so many reasonings. But, muslims are united. That is why, these bloody Hindu Politicians of SP, TMC, BSP, TDP, DMK are supporting Muslims, afraid of Muslims. Unity is Strength. Just talking of Yagnya, Punya, Karunya is not of use. They will spoil Hinduism and reduce Hindu population in a few years.

      We should attack these bustard…
      We should not think them as our brother…
      They hate us…
      Go for killing them,be united always…
      Don’t wait for police ….

      • @ Rimika Sen, First we should beat you to death. From centuries Hindus and Muslim brotherhood is very strong it will not break to some fake reporting of incidents. If this incident is true kindly provide any proof else Please shut all your holes and be quite. These type of fake reporting is of no use.

          And how do you conclude that the reporting is fake? The burden of proof lies with you as you cared to comment on this website which broke this news-obviously they believed it to be true because they verified the sources.

  • i am tired of reading these one sided attacks,merely holding yaggyas is not sufficient,we read in Ramayana that Ram and Lakshman used to be on duty for protection of YAGGAYAS which is used to be disturbed by Rakshas,similarly protection should be arranged and attackers are repulse.d^^
