NEWS FLASH : DEGANGA RETALIATION : 8TH SEPT, 2010 : 10-00PM
Today protesters of various pro-Hindu groups including HINDU SAMHATI demonstrated in various places in south Bengal on DEGANGA ISSUE.
In the morning Mr. Tathgata Roy, State BJP leader proceeded towards Deganga with some other Hindu leaders. Ultimately they reached Deganga Police Station in the afternoon.
However, it was reported that Mr. Roy met Mr. Sanjay Mukherjee, IG and Mr. Rahul Srivastava, IPS , Superintendent of Police, North 24 Pgs and for a dialogue about the peace process and to rescue the severely affected Hindus of KARTICKPUR, BISWANATHPUR, KHEJURDANGA KARMAKAR PARA and other places of DEGANGA AREA.
But when the BJP supporters started a demonstration at Vijoy Cinema Hall near Barasat Champadali Crossing to protest the persecution and torture upon Hindus even in the presence of Army at Deganga area, Police from Barasat P.S. came and severely lathi-charged the protesters to disperse them . Before that the Muslims from nearby areas tried to dismantle the peaceful demonstration with heavy brick-baiting. After that some 10/12 Muslim youth attacked the common Hindu people near Haritala and broke some shops there.
Afterward, at 9.00pm a Muslim mob came from Peergacha area of Barasat Town and vandalized some shops at K.B. Bose Rd. and threatened to come back with dire consequences to vacate all Hindus from there just after Ramzan and Idd. One shop named M/S Chowdhury Jewellers at K.B. Bose was severely damaged, as reports came in from various sources.
Mr. Tathagata Roy conveyed the HE moderator this message @ email:
I have been receiving disturbing reports from Deganga since 7th morning. However, 7th being a bandh day in West Bengal, no transport was available on that day. Today (8th) morning I started out, and reached our party office at the district headquarters of Barasat around 2.30 PM. After conferring with police officials to ensure safety, I reached Deganga P.S. On the way we say Hindu shops completely gutted at Beliaghata and other places and a temple desecrated. At Deganga Shri Sanjay Mukherjee, an IG was camping, and Shri Rahul Srivastava the SP was also present. I impressed upon them the need to restore confidence among the Hindus and they promised to do their best. Upon coming out from the office I had to contend with the ousted Hindus camping in front of the thana. Somehow I managed to pacify them. On return to Barasat I addressed a street corner meeting where there was a huge gathering. After I spoke and left, the IG called up our karyakartas and told them to stop the meeting because it was inflaming Hindus at Barasat and Muslims in Deganga. This was a most unfair request because none of us said anything inflammatory, but out of deference our karyakartas stopped the meeting. This angered the crowd who blocked traffic on the road.
