Updates(16-02-2012): On 15th February, the Kolkata police authority produced Sri Tapan Ghosh, President, Hindu Samhati to the Judiciary at Alipore Court. The advocates of Hindu Samhati moved the bail petition in favour of Sri Ghosh. After hearing the both parties the Hon’ble Judge fixed the next date of hearing on 18th next. Although the Govt. pleader stated the arrest of Tapan Ghosh is a procedural one, the advocates of Hindu Samhati vehemently opposed it as the rights of Hindus for their congregation and expression are blatantly refuted by the State and its agencies. The alleged charges for inciting communal hatred by Sri Ghosh is also disagreed by the Samhati counsels very prudently. Experts expect a positive bail on 18-02-2012 in favour of Sri Ghosh. Hindu Existence also pray to Almighty God for an early release of Tapan Ghosh.
TAPAN GHOSH, PRESIDENT, HINDU SAMHATI IS ARRESTED BY KOLKATA POLICE.
HE (Hindu Existence) NEWS EXCLUSIVE || 14 th Feb, 2012 || 22-00 Hrs. IST || Kolkata.
Just after the successful completion of the 4th anniversary (HINDU SAMHATI FOUNDATION DAY) of Hindu Samhati, the Kolkata Police followed its President, Tapan Kumar Ghosh with a definite planning to arrest him under the higher instruction of the West Bengal State Authority. Within three hours the Police Contingent of Jadavpur PS arrested him in late evening against a warrant issued out of Jadavpur P.S. Case No. 52/dt 05.02.2012 u/s 295 A, 298 and 120 B (IPC). As per source, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee is very much shocked after seeing a successful grand rally for Hindu demands to stop Muslim appeasement and Islamic insurgency in West Bengal.
It is held by some socio-political analysts that some hectic process is going on West Bengal Police Head Quarter at Lalbazar, Kolkata to some severe (but false charges) against the arrested leader to put down his Hindu Activism.
As reported an Islamist organization is going to protest in Kolkata streets near Esplanade on 15th Feb, 2012 with a demand to ban Hindu Samhati as they think it as a prime force against Muslim design to capture West Bengal under a broadened corridor of Bangladesh. Arresting Tapan Ghosh, Mamta Banerjee is trying to give a sharp message in favour her pro-Islamic Stand.
Sri Tapan Ghosh is now detained in Jadavpur Police Station and in good health condition.
Some sharp reactions just recieved :
Swami Tejsananda (Member, Marg Darshak Mandali, VHP): Is practicing Hindu Dharam and assembling to protect Dhrama from the clutch from anti Hindu Spirit supposed to a sin for the Hindus in West Bengal? Nobody can stop us from regaining our position of Hindus in Bengal. Hindus should be united again without seeing any political colour. I condemn the arrest of Tapan Ghosh vehemently.
Sri Ramesh Bhai Shinde (Hindu Janjagruti Samity): We vehemently protest the illegitimate arrest of Sri Tapan Ghosh. We, the Hindus have the fundamental rights to assemble to place our demands and share our agony and anxieties coming to us by some parts to harm the Hindu society. We see a definite threat is being perceived by the Hindus for various reasons. Hindu Samhati as a forum is trying to address all the vulnerable positions to the Bengali Hindus for its survival. If any other populace from others religions are permitted to hold their function without any such restrictions, why this Organization is being censored even after getting Honb’le Court order in its favor. We think the present Govt. in the State is setting a very bad example in West Bengal by ignoring Court’s order only to appease the Muslim minority in West Bengal. We demand early release of Sri Tapan Ghosh.
Acharya Yogesh Shastri (Arya Samaj, Bengal): It is very much unfortunate that Hindu functions are under gradual cease in Paschim Banga. Hindu Rights are being infringed in the name of Parivartan (CHANGE). Last year this Trinmul and Congress alliance Govt. lead by Smt. Mamata Banerjee grossly violated Hon’ble Calcutta High Court Order in connection with total ban on cow slaughter in West Bengal. Ignoring that Court Order, Mamta Banerjee hurts the Hindu sentiment. And now in the same way the present Chief Minister of West Bengal is dis-allowing the rights of Hindus in the matter of Freedom of Speech and Rights to Assemble. it is dangerous for any democratic atmosphere in Bengal. As a result, the Majority Hindus may drastically retaliate without check. I condemn the arrest of Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh and plea early release. He must not be endangered in police custody anyway.
Stephen Knapp (Srinandanandan ~Vedic Scholar): If M. Bannerjee (Cheif Minister, West Bengal – ed.) is pro-Islam in West Bengal, things are going to get very difficult for Hindus. Then another peice of India will be taken away for Islam. When will this ever change? Only if Hindus unite and work together. There are still too many Hindus on the sidelines doing nothing. Hari Om.
CAAMB, KOLKATA: We are worried to hear that Shri Tapan Ghosh, leader of Hindu Sanhati has been arrested after the annual day meeting at Subodh Mullik Square in Kolkata on 14 February 2012. We have seen that a few weeks ago some Muslim organisations including a MLA from ruling party threatened to cause violence if Talsima Nasrin’s book is released in Kolkta Book Fair. Government without arresting those miscreants, bowed down to their threat and stopped release of the book. On 15th February, another Muslim organisation organised a rally at the heart of Kolkata and the Chief Minister spoke to the leader at the rally on phone. So we find while one group of religion-based organisations are being supported even they profess violence, another Hindu religious group is being threatened with banning the meeting and arresting the leader though no public violence has been committed there. As a human rights organisation we are worried that this is not a good sign for democracy and if this continues, the existence of West Bengal as a democratic pluralistic society is under threat.

Swami Pradiptanandaji Maharaj (Monk In charge, Bharat Sevashram Sangha, Beldanga Branch): I condemn the conspiracy of arresting Tapan Kumar Ghosh, the President of Hindu Samhati with a strong feeling of persecution of Hindus in West Bengal. It is very much unfortunate that the Hindus of Bengal are denied to perform their religious and social programmes. Everywhere the other sects are allowed to do their religious activities with Govt. patronage but the Hindu functions are stopped in many places for appeasing the others. In this connection, the role of the media is also very significant to discharge their duties to highlight such discrimination upon Hindus. But, the media is only after the politics and the minority without giving any importance on the sentiments and the voice of the majority Bengali Hindus in West Bengal. If some eight or ten Muslim Ulemas are demanding anything the entire media flash it in TV, Radio, News Papers. But, when some 10 to 15 thousand supporters of Hindu Samhati gather every year in Kolkata, the entire media does not give any importance to it. This malpractice of Media is to be cowed down by forming a strong and alternative Hindu media. I personally urge to the concerned Administrative and Police authorities to stand with the truth and they should not harass the Hindu leaders or anybody with false allegations under any political or religious influence. This is ethically bad.
Dr. Radhashyam Brahmachari (Eminent Physicist and Hindu scholar): Only to appease the Muslim minorities who are endangering the future of Bengali Hindus, the present ruling party (Trinamul Congress) is blatantly harassing the Hindus in West Bengal much more than its predecessor Left Front Govt. No political party in West Bengal is doing anything in favour of Hindus. It is highly condemnable that in our democratic system only the interests of the minority people is considered as a pious vote bank by torturing Hindus and ignoring the interests of majority people. This will turn as a great retaliation. I CONDEMN THE ARREST OF MR TAPAN GHOSH.
Swami Punyalokanandaji Maharaj (Head Monk, Ramakrishna Ashram, Singur): I am very much shocked to hear the unnecessary arrest of Tapanda. So, far I know that the programme of 14th February at Kolkata was over without creating any trouble to anybody and communal eruption. Then what is the meaning of arresting a Hindu leader against false charges? We see that in every places the rights of Hindus for holding religious functions are being challeged in West Bengal by either the anti-Hindu religious groups or by the present political powers. Bharatvarsha is a land of Sanatana Dharma. If the practice of Sanatana Dharma and public meeting of Hindus are prohibited here, it is very shameful and unfortunate than anything. It is embarrassing us very much. Hindus from all organization should realize the reality in Bengal and must be united with a new equation. Tapanda will be released within day two or three, that we know and will emerge with a greater strength. Blessings of Ma Kali, Thakur Ramakrishna, Ma Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda are always with him.
Maloy Krishna Dhar (Ex.IPS. Served IB. Author and Investigative Journalist): I consider the arrest is arbitrary, guided by political decision of Mamata, the leader of All India Muslim Mul Congress. By pursuing Muslim appeasement policy, she is enhancing the speed of another partition of Bengal. I condemn such blatant apeasement policy of Kalighater Mechuni (a fisher-woman of Kalighat – ed.).
