Hindu migrants from Bangladesh must be accommodated: Narendra Modi

PTI | Silchar (Assam) | February 22, 2014:: BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Saturday said Hindu migrants from Bangladesh must be accommodated in the country and detention camps would be done away with once his party comes to power.

“As soon as we come to power at the Centre, detention camps housing Hindu migrants from Bangladesh will be done away with,” Modi told a public rally at Ramnagar here.

“We have a responsibility toward Hindus who are harassed and suffer in other countries. Where will they go? India is the only place for them. Our government cannot continue to harass them. We will have to accommodate them here,” he said.

Stating that this did not mean that Assam has to bear the entire burden, he said “it will be unfair on them and they will be settled across the country with facilities to begin a new life.”

Earlier, Hindus from Pakistan had arrived in Gujarat and Rajasthan, but Atal Behari Vajpayee during his prime ministership created schemes to accommodate them in different states, he said.

Modi alleged that the Assam government as a part of its vote bank politics had violated human rights of Hindu migrants in detention camps.

Speaking on the issue of ‘doubtful’ voters, Modi said this was also a part of the Congress’ vote bank politics of denying a section of the people their right to vote.

He urged the Election Commission to remove the tag of doubtful voters and give these people the right to vote to ensure free and fair polls.

Modi said that there were two kinds of people who came from Bangladesh to Assam; those brought as a part of a ’political conspiracy’ for vote bank politics of a particular party, and others who were harassed in the neighbouring country.

He said that those brought for vote bank politics and smugglers from Bangladesh should be pushed back, while the second category must find a place in the country.

“Bangladesh is next to Assam, while Pakistan is next to Gujarat. Assam Bangladeshi se pareshan hai par pura Pakistan mujse pareshan hai. (Assam is harassed by Bangladesh whereas Pakistan is bothered by me),” the Gujarat Chief Minister said at his second meeting of the day in the North East.

“You have to decide whether you will continue to tolerate Bangladeshi harassment or put an end to it. I have come to you for your answer. Trust me and as soon as we come to power we will take immediate steps to redress these problems and ensure that justice prevails,” he said.

No power in this world can snatch away our territory: Shri Narendra Modi in Pasighat 

Narendra Modi in Pashighat (Arunachal)HE Media Forum | Pashighat (Arunachal) | February 22, 2014:: Connecting Arnuachal and Gujarat in the natural phenomenon of sunrise and sunset, Narendra Modi enchanted a mammoth crowd at Pashighat and aroused a vibrant patriotism in the mind of the people of Arunachal Pradesh today in the meeting named Vijay Sankalp Abhiyan’ rally here. Calling Pasighat as the gateway of Arunachal and acknowledging it as the land of the brave, Shri Modi said, “If it was not for the patriotism of Arunachal Pradesh what would happen. People here are standing firm against China. People of this land did not come under pressure from China. The clarion call of ‘Jai Hind’ reverberates in this land.”

Appreciating the untapped natural beauty in Arunachal Pradesh, Shri Modi attributed the state as the ‘orchard of India’ and said that Gujarat and Arunachal Pradesh shared close relations. He added that the land of Arunachal was blessed to have the first rays of the sun fall here, and that the final rays of setting of the sun in Gujarat conveyed that they will rise again tomorrow in Arunachal. “The 1st rays of the sun bless this land. Arunachal Pradesh rises first then the rest of India rises,” said Shri Modi.

Stating that the thinking of the nation is changing, Shri Modi said that only the thought of progress will work now, and that the land and its people will not tolerate any acts of violence and aggression. “Yug badal chuka hai…vistarwadi mansikta sweekar nahi hogi. Cheen ko bhi yeh mansikta tyag deni hogi. Vikas ki mansikta chalegi. The ear has been changed. Nobody is ready to accept any expansionism . China should also reject this mentality of aggression.  The time will continue with the signs of development. No power in this world can snatch away our territory,” said Shri Modi.

Shri Modi said that the foreign powers are active in the north east and the unchecked infiltration is a very dangerous threat to our country. These must be tackled in a very strict regulations.

Urging the people of Arunachal to show their support for the BJP in the 2014 elections, Shri Modi said that the BJP would shine in all the 8 states of Northeast India. “The Lotus will shine in all the 8 states! There will be prosperity and progress in the region. Saugandh mujhe is mitti ki mai desh nahi mitne doonga, mai desh nahi tootne doonga, mai desh nahi jhukne doonga. I am taking the vow in the name of this soil that I will not allow any destruction of this country, I will not allow any further division of this country and never allow any situation for which My Nation shall have to bow down to others. Jai Hind.  ” said Shri Modi.

Though Narendra Modi restrained himself to comment hard over the growing Christian conversion and militant outfits poked by Chinese powers in the area, the prime ministerial candidate of BJP categorically cautioned China and the subversive powers engaged to destabilize the peace and integrity of North-East region of India and adjacent.

Islamic Bangladesh has lost all its humanity. Now trying eviction of minority Hindus by threatening letters.

Posted by hinduexistence on January 29, 2014

Hindu Kaffirs, Leave Bangladesh - Islamists send anonymous letters.

Persecution upon Hindus in BD all time high.

Hindu Kaffirs, Leave Bangladesh – Islamists send anonymous letters.

‘Time has come,’ threat to Satkhira Hindus 

Hindu families receive anonymous letters threatening eviction. 

Dhaka Tribune  Correspondent | updated on January 29, 2014 |  Satkhira, Bangladesh::  “Time has come to leave your homes immediately,” that’s the message 20 Hindu families received as a threat in anonymous letters, in Satkhira Sadar, Tuesday afternoon.

“You have been living here for a long time. Not anymore. Whether you have to sell your domain or just abandon, the time has come for you to leave it immediately,” the letters said.

Some of the receipients were lawyers.

Satkhira is known to be a stronghold of the Jamaat-e-Islami and is listed as one of the “vulnerable” areas of the country where specialised forces are currently cracking down.

The families are living in fear after these hand-written letters were delivered to their homes, located adjacent to Judge Court in Palashpole in town, via post.

“This time you have been told nicely. But the next time there will not be any niceities.”

The letters were posted from Manobadhikar Sangha Satkhira (a local human-rights association by translation), according to what could be read from the envelopes.

The ones who received the letters were Rabin Sarker, Kamalesh Ghosh, Advocates Raghunath Mondal, Tapan Kundu, Tapan Das, Arpan Sarkar, and Kanti Lal Sarker, Swapan Sana, Proshenjit Chakrabarty, Sanatan Shil, Bappa Dey, Tapan Swarnakar, Samir Karmakar, Dulal Sarker, Sharbindu Mondal, Chitralekha Basu, Sona, Bimal Mondal, Mangal Sarkar and others.

Satkhira Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge Enamul Haque said no one filed a written complaint in this regard. “But, we are looking into the matter.”

The Hindu minority community came under attack immediately after the elections held on January 5, what was condemned by national and international quarters.

Leave Bangladesh, Satkhira Hindus told

Satkhira Correspondent | bdnews24.com | January 29, 2014::  Thirty Hindu families in Satkhira district have been threatened with dire consequences if they do not leave Bangladesh. Each family living opposite the Judges’ Court at Palashpole received a letter each on Tuesday, asking them to leave.

They, however, did not file any complaint with the police until late on Tuesday night.

Satkhira Sadar Police Station OC Enamul Haq said they were investigating.

The Jamaat-e-Islami had unleashed massive violence in the district after their leaders were awarded death or life sentences by the war crimes tribunals.

That continued until the Jan 5 polls.

Security forces started raiding such locations in Satkhira district where violence had taken place, specially areas where minorities had been targetted.

Several Jamaat and some BNP activists have been killed during purported encounters with the security forces.

Lawyers and government officials belonging to Hindu community have received these threat letters.

Manabadhikar Sangha Satkhira has been mentioned as senders on the envelopes.

The language on all the letters was same and they were all hand-written.

The seal on the envelopes indicate they were posted from Khulna.

Several of those who received the letters told bdnews24.com that they would go to the police, seeking security.

OC Enamul told bdnews24.com: “Nobody has yet complained to the police station about this. We are investigating it.”

Boycott anti Hindu ABP Groups for their nefarious design to snatching the symbol of ‘Sindoor’ from Hindu woman.

Posted by hinduexistence on January 10, 2014

The Secularism of Ananda Bazar Patrika Exposed!

We should teach a pungent lesson to anti Hindu ABP Group of media and its related so called secular intellectual maroons. 

0 authenticity of ABP on the basis of 100 percent anti Hinduness

Click to enlarge.

Upananda Brahmachari | New Delhi | Jan 10, 2014:: Everybody is concerned now about the post poll violence in Bangladesh (BD)  which caused a large loss for the minority Hindus there. The Jammat and BNP cadres attacked the peace-loving Hindus here and there with an insane sense of brutality. The whole world is condemning it as the humanity has been attacked in Bangladesh with all animalist attitudes and outrages of fanaticism both connected with politics and and a so called religion of peace.

The whole world is seeing the truth that Hindu minorities in Bangladesh are being synonymized as ‘the supporters of Awami League’ and they are being target by BNP-Jammat cadres under a fist of politics. Again the same ill-fated Hindus are being tortured as Indian supporters/agents or as ‘Kaffir’ or ‘Malaun’ by the fanatic elements with a view of up-growing Talibanic fundamentalism in Bangladesh. The ruling Awami League is simply incapable to protect these minority citizens in Bangladesh and consequently, Hindus of Bangladesh are again under threat and torture as the roller of previous persecution upon them in 1946 (Noakhali-Chandpur), 1950, 1964,1971, 1986 (All East Pakistan),  1992, 2001 (All BD)  and the recent years of BNP and Awami regimens.

Hindus of Bangladesh (erstwhile East Pakistan) have been subjected to humiliating, looting, frightening, torturing, killing, arsoning, abducting, molesting, raping, vacating, victimizing all leading to a complete extinction. Once a 30% Hindus in BD region has come to a low of 8%, but the Hindu genocide, ethnic cleansing or the exodus of Hindus from Bangladesh or East Pakistan can never be a subject to the so called Bengal intellectuals in recent times. They praised Maqbool Fida Husain and Javed Akhtar for their anti Hindu art and cultural rights. And these ‘maid-servants’ of Islam opposed Salman Rushidee and drove away Taslima Nasreen to please their Islamic masters time and again.

The present post poll series of persecution upon Hindus (we should not forget the Shabagh movement for the demand of punishment of all war criminals of BD, pre-poll hartal by BNP-Jammat opposition, the killing of Biswajit Das by Awami league cadres, the hanging verdict of Delwar Hossain Sayeedi, the execution of Abdul Quadir Molla and the eventual attacks upon Hindu minorities in every phase) caused the hacking of Five Hindus to death, looting of Hindu households, molestation of Hindu women, vandalizing of Hindu temples, grabbing of land and enormous loss of their business and peace.

BD HINDUS

The world media including BD media accepted the truth of Hindu persecution in Bangladesh. The international media like BBC, VOA, Reuters, AFP, AP all described this violence in Bangladesh had its severity in attacking minority Hindu people by fanatic Islamic groups.  The mainstream Bangladesh media has not skipped this truth anyway.

But, the bastard Bengali media cannot see the truth just beyond the nearest boundary. On the contrary, the Bengali media leading by the ABP (Ananda Bazar Patrika) Group is suppressing the truth of Islamic attack upon Hindu minorities in Bangladesh with the help of photoshop techniques by crushing the Hindu identity of Hindu victims only to glorify Islam under their over-tuned ideals of secularism.  To enhance the Muslim readership, this group is ready to do anything opposite to truth and to lick the feet of their Muslim masters.

On 07th January, the popular BD daily in Bengali, Prothom Alo printed a report under the headline “Chanpatalay sudhui kanna” (there is only wailing at Champatala). The report described the ghastly attack on BD Hindu minorities in recent time. Just after the polling was closed, the Jammat-BNP activists attacked the Hindus of Malopara in Champatala village of Abhaynagar in Jessore district with deadly weapons, sticks, rods etc. in the evening to night. The Hindu house-holds were put in fire, chastity of women challenged, rampage and looting were optimum. The victimized Hindus (mostly fishermen, women and their children) jumped into the Bhairav River and took shelter at Deyapara crossing the water flow. Some 10 houses were put in fire and all other 102 Hindu houses of Malopara were vandalized and looted. The victimized Hindus returned their home in the next day and the reporters of Prothom Alo interviewed them.

With the report, the Bengali daily Poathom Alo, published a photo taken by Ehasan-Ud-Daulla. The photo was captioned as “khabarer jannya kandche sishu Bipasha Barman. kandchen ma Sanchita Barman 0. Karan ghare khabar nei. Khabar asbe kotha thek? Ghar i to nei. Ghar dor sahay sambal geche 112 ti sankhyalaghu parivarer. Gato robbar nirvachaner par rate jassorer Abhaynagar Upajilar Chanpatal gramer Maloparay barite hamla, bhangchur o lootpat chalano hay. Puriye deoa hay dashti bari. Jammat-shibir e narakiya hamla chaliyeche bole janan sthaniya lokjan. Chobi: Ehasan-Ud-Daulla“. The picture contains that a baby (Bipasha Barman) and her mother (Sanchita Barman) were crying for the want of food. As the 10 houses of Malopara were burned out and all other houses were vandalized and looted and all the 112 minority families, the families were helpless and distressed. The attacks were made by Jammat groups as the local people said. The mother Sanchita wore a yellow sari in Hindu style with putting a vermilion symbol (Sindur) on her fore head. She also wore a typical ‘tulsi bids’ as neck-less as per Hindu custom.

The ABP bastards changed the picture again silently.  See the position of pic has been changed.

SUCCESS: The ABP bastards changed the picture again silently under protest. Now with Sindoor. See, the position of picture has been changed.

The same picture as above was published by the bastard ABP group in their Ananda Bazar Patrika on 09-01-2014, with a captioned report: “Uddigna Bharat, Hingsa rukhte kada Hassina“, means: India anxious, Hassina is rigid to stop violence. The report never reflected any attack upon Hindu minority in Bangladesh.  The reporters Agni Roy and Anamitra Chattopdhaya tried best to secularize the news and avoided anything about the religious and fanatic attacks upon Hindu minorities in a virulent manner.  Not only that the ABP group played a nasty game by removing the vermilion symbol (sindur) from the forehead of the crying Hindu woman in the published picture, violating all decency or courtesy or the copy right issues. See the top comparative picture .

The bastard ABP group exposed their ill motives to crush Hindu identity of persecuted Hindu people to save the face of the Islamists all over. Rather the sadist reporters and photo technicians of ABP group enjoy very much to remove the Sindur (vermilion) from the forehead of Hindu women.

I am very much sorry to use the word ‘bastard’ in repetition. Even, I don’t want to repeat it.

But, in my view, who are engaged into crushing a Hindu identity from a Hindu person and snatching a honor symbol of sindoor from a Hindu woman is obviously a lower than bastard.

Hindu Existence Forum strongly condemned these continued and nefarious activities done by ABP group. I appeal to all concern to boycott the reporter Agni Ray and Anamitra Chattopadhya with the Editor and Publisher of Ananda Bazar Patrika along with entire ABP groups, until they seek unconditional apology for this mischievous activities, hurting Hindu sentiments.

Please boycott them socially and economically.  Challenge and attack them intellectually and insolubly without any physical harassment.

Who wants to make suits against the perpetrators for this defamation of Hindus and violating many legal provisions by ABP group may use this article as cause of action under intimation to the author.

PROTEST HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE THIS SOCIETY ~ UPANANDA BRAHMACHARI.

Friends! At last bastard ABP management withdrew this news from the link. What a courage to face the Truth by this ABP Group. Spite on them.

Bastard ABP withdrew the news.

Hindus restrained to vote. At least Five Hindus hacked to death by Jamaat-e-Islami and BNP activists. Huge exodus due to post poll Islamic attacks on Hindu minorities in Bangladesh.

Posted by hinduexistence on January 6, 2014

Fear of insecurity restrained Hindu minorities to vote in BD Election, BNP-Jamaat started severe attacking on Hindu villages in Bangladesh in post poll turmoil. Five Hindus hacked to death by Islamists. Hindus leaving Bangladesh. 

fear-of-insecurity-in-Bangladesh-HindusUpananda Brahmachari in Delhi | Pinaki Ranjan Das Roy in Dhaka | January 05-07, 2014:: Amidst violence ridden General Election in Bangladesh, Hindu voters in different places including Patgram in Lalmonirhat district and Kalaroa upazila in Satkhira district could not go to polling centres freely and cast their votes peacefully today as fear of insecurity loomed larger on them against the backdrop of Jamaat-Shibir men’s recent attacks on the minority Hindu community.

Soon after the Election is over, Hindu minorities of Bangladesh are again facing the barbaric attacks of the fundamental Muslim perpetrators here and there across the territory of Bangladesh.

The correspondent of Bangladesh English daily, the Daily Star, S Dilip Roy interacted the Hindu voters in two constituencies under Lalmonirhat district on Friday (03 Jan, 2014) on the eve of national election in Bangladesh.

The voting touched a very low turnout as the opposition Bangladesh National Party (BNP) and its allies boycotted the election.

“As a very similar fashion when Jamaat-Shibir men attacked the local Hindus on October 27 last year, the  Muslim criminals belonging to BNP and Jammat again attacked the Hindu minority people on Saturday morning (04 Jan, 2014) and torched the traditional temple, creating panic among the local Hindus. We are now too afraid to cast our votes,” Harendra Nath Roy, 65, caretaker of traditional Parapukur Shwashan Kali Mandir at Shafinagar village of Patgram upazila, said.

“The Hindu voters in general are apprehensive about going to polling centres as Jamaat-Shibir men still pose threat. There are at least 35 thousand Hindu voters in Patgram upazila but only small portion of them, who are involved with Awami League politics, may cast their votes,” said Rajani Kanta Ghosh, a local Hindu community leader at Ghoshpara village of Patgram upazila.

School teacher Suchitra Rani Pal, 45, a Hindu voter at Jagotbar village of Patgram upazila, was restrained to cast her vote as there is high threat to Hindu people at the village.

“I talked with over a hundred of Hindu women who are not interested to go the polling centres,” she said.

As per report of the Dhaka Tribune, at least five Hindus were hacked to death in the adjacent areas of Abhaynagar-Malopara area in the epicenter of the mayhem of Jessore. The deadly assault on the Hindu minorities was started after the closing of poll hours of the 10th parliamentary election in Bangladesh.

“Their only fault – they are Hindus and many of them had cast votes in the just concluded 10th national election.”… “Watching the people running across the yellow mustard field before jumping into the river reminded Sabita of herself and her father running across a field – only, it was littered with dead bodies – decades ago, chased by the Pakistani occupation force during the 1971 Liberation War.” …. “About 100 people had to jump into the river that afternoon as they were chased by activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and its student wing Islami Chhatra Shibir, all equipped with firearms, crude bombs, machetes, iron rods and sticks.” … Dhaka Tribune reporter Emran Hossain delineated the traumatized hours for the helpless Hindus as Jamaat-Shibir men hacked five Hindus for voting and tried to scare away the entire community from their vicinity.

The administration had classified 145 of the 220 polling centres in the two constituencies as ‘vulnerable’, as Jamaat-e-Islami and its student wing Islami Chhatra Shibir have a good number of activists there.

Habibur Rahman, returning officer of Lalmonirhat, said the administration has made all preparations to keep the election free from violence and so, the Hindu voters can cast their votes without any fear. But, the maximum Hindu voters preferred not to vote for avoiding the boiling fundamentalism in Bangladesh, especially targeting Hindu minorities.

The Daily Star  Correspondent reported: Panicked Hindus in Kalaroa and Satkhira Sadar upazilas were traumatized and  unsure about going to the polling centres for casting their votes in the parliament election on 05 January, 2104.

Several hundred Hindu families of Satkhira Sadar upazila, who left their homes during recent violence committed by Jamaat-Shibir activists, are yet to return home, even after joint forces’ drives in the area.

BD Dinajpur torching on Hindu Houses

Masked Muslim men brought out procession in Jalalabad union under Kalaroa upazila on Friday night asking people not to cast their votes, much to the worry of the Hindu voters, he added.

As the Awami League is going to take the political control of Bangladesh once again, the frastrated and enraged BNP and Jamaat-e-Islami-Bangladesh combination started severe attacks upon Hindu minorities.

BNP-Jamaat activists vandalised and looted 130 houses and torched 10 others at a Hindu village in Abhaynagar upazila of Jessore tonight hours after the end of voting in 10th parliamentary poll in Bangladesh on 05th January, 2014.

The mayhem started as two men — Biswanath Sarkar and Shyamol Sarkar — of Chapatola Malopara village, went to the Chapatola Aliya Madrasa polling centre earlier on the day, ignoring the opposition’s embargo, reports Daily Star- Jessore correspondent quoting Emdad Hossain, officer-in-charge of Abhaynagar Police Station.

More than 200 activists of BNP and Jamaat, led by local opposition leader Ariful Aksu and Kashem Ali, entered the village around 6:00pm blasting 15 crude bombs and injured Biswanath and Shyamol, the police official added.

The appalled villagers swam across the adjacent Bhairab river and took shelter on the other side at Diyapara village to escape the brutal attack, the OC said.

Agitated activists then vandalised and looted at least 130 houses and set fire on 10 others, he said.

On information, the joint forces rushed to the spot around 9:00pm and brought the situation under control, the OC added.

The joint forces have started a drive to find the miscreants who were involved in the atrocity.

To frighten the Hindu voters, the BNP-Jammat perpetrators started attacking Hindu minorities well advanced before the poll.

The Bangladesh Media reports said that BNP and Jamaat men looted, vandalized and burned Hindu houses in Thakurgaon, Dinajpur, Rangpur, Bogra, Lalmonirhat, Rajshahi, Chittagong and Jessore in the post poll attacks and rampage on Hindus unabated.

See the quantum of post poll persecution upon BD minority Hindus at Malopara, Jessore by Jammat-BNP Islamist before the silent Awami Leaguers and slow BD adminstration. 

“what did do my baby who is crying now for a drop of milk”

“why you people torture us for being Hindu only. what is our sin”

“nobody to help us as we are Hindus”

“we don’t want to stay here any more. please help us to reach the border”

On  Thursday night (02 Jan, 2104) the Muslim miscreants vandalized two images (God Mahadeva and Goddess Kali) in  Barahi temple in northern Jaipur Union Chaupalli market in Laksmipur Sadar upazila.  The miscreants looted the valuable Puja utensils, donation box, and many other valuable goods.  Swapan Chandra Dev Nath, General Secretary of Hindu Buddhist Christian Unity Council of Laksmipur unit confirmed the news.

Shyamal Chandra Dey, the General Secretary of  Barahi temple told that the suspected Islamic gangsters looted about 60 to 70 thousand rupees worth of goods.

BD Hindus Current PersecutionSub-inspector (SI) Wahid of Dattapara police outpost, confirmed the incident and said the investigation will take legal action against those responsible.

From the source of BD News it is now confirmed that the Muslim miscreant belonging to BNP-Jammat combination attacked the Hindus in Raghunathapur Radhanagore Union of Atwarpur Upa-zilla in Panchagarh distirct. The miscreant set fire on few Hindu houses there.

The four houses of Manik Chandra Sen, Nani Gopal Chandra Pariamal Chandra were set on fire.

Narendra Nath, the Oficer-in-Charge of Atwari Police Station said that the opposition BNP-Jammat has caused the incident only to spread panic in the mind of  Hindu minorities before the election.

The hanging of war-criminals in Bangladesh, death sentence to them and the pre and after poll Political disasters proved fatal for Bangladeshi minority Hindus. Violence upon Hindus is continued after election in Bangladesh.  Thousands of Bengali Hindu people are staying as refugees in India From Bangladesh as they have entered in India in a very crucial situation. Thousands of Bengali Hindu people have left Namg;ladesh in recent times to take a refuge in India for the violence of BNP-Jammat force  and the callous inaction of Bangladesh Police. The vanishing  minority Hindu people in Bangladesh are suffering most tragic treatment for the unstable political conditions of Bangladesh.

The BNP-Jammat workers are insisting minority community people to join the present anti-government violent movement of Bangladesh. They are torturing  the minority Hindu people if they refuse them to join in. Even minority Hindu women are suffering molestation, rape, abduction and humiliation as well.

On the other hand if the threatened minority people join the revolt of BNP-Jammat under pressurized compulsion, police are coming to search their homes, leading to a new phase of police torture . These inhuman matters are occurring in the border area of Bangladesh specifically in Shatkheera & Khulna district.

As a result Bangladeshi Hindu people are rapidly leaving Bangladesh and entering neighbouring India, specifically into North 24 Parganas, Nadia, Dakshin Dinajpur and South 24 Parganas of West Bengal, India.  As per source,  some eight thousand Bangladeshi Hindu people left Bangladesh through Hakimpur, an attached border area of Swarupnagar of North 24 parganas by crossing blade wires & Sonai river.

As per an authentic estimation lakhs of minority Hindus left Bangladesh and sheltered into Bharat in the days of Sahabagh, execution verdict given to war criminal Sayeedi, hanging of Abdul Quadir, bandh declared by opposition, declaration of present parliamentary election, violence during the poll and the aftermath put the last nail into the coffin of Bangladesh minority Hindus.

In new destination, these persecuted Hindu people are also facing another insecure life as the entered India in illegal way. They are passing a escaping life. Maximum Bangladeshi Hindus are staying in their relatives’ house or in rental homes with fake identity. Analysts are saying if the political turmoils in Bangladesh are continued further,  the numbers of Hindu refugee in India from Bangladesh may break the record of 1971, this time.

Diptiman Mukhopadhya, reporter of Bengali daily ‘Bartaman’ narrated the inexpressible plight of Bangladeshi Hindus for the present on 06-12-2013.

The report reveals that the Muslim fundamentalist groups in Bangladesh habitually raid the Hindu residents in the border districts like Khulna and Satkhira. The BD administration and police hardly show any interest for the protection of persecuted Hindu minorities in Bangladesh.

The displaced and persecuted Hindus from Bangladesh mainly took refuge in the areas of Basirhat, Hingalganj, Itinda in West Bengal and now living a very insecure life as the reporter highlighted the actualities there  through some interviews with Bhakti Biswas of vill Bidisha of Khulna, Panchanan Mondal of vill Padma, Nirmal Basu of Satkhira and some other victims of recent Islamic fundamentalism in Bangladesh.

The painstaking report depicted that the Hindu victims came to India leaving all the belongings and the lands left even unsold within a night crossing the meadows, borders and rivers with absolute risks. The dignity of the women were severely challenged in these days.

After coming in India these Hindu migrants are leveled illegal and frighteningly challenged by Indian police in every notch of time. But the helpless Hindus have no other way than leaving Bangladesh with their last drop of tears.

In this report also it is feared that the number of migrant Hindus from Bangladesh this time may touch the statistics of Hindu refugees came to India in the days of 1971.

In other words, Bangladesh is going to be Hindu-less Bangladesh very soon with a nasty Islamic design of Hindu annihilation there.

Who will save Bangladesh Hindus? Awami League and BCL are involved in Biswajit killing. Court sentenced 8 to death, 13 for life.

Posted by hinduexistence on December 20, 2013

Biswajit Killing, Dhaka Court sentenced 8 to death, 13 for life imprisonment. Awami League and BCL are involved in the brutal killing.

Biswajit MurderUpananda Brahmachari | HE Media | New Delhi | Dec 19, 2013:: Hindu minorities in Bangladesh are not safe in the hands of ruling Awami League. Now it has been proved that the Awami league is the other side of the same BNP-Jamaat coin. On road murder of Biswajit in the broad  daylight in last year was a brutal act of Ruling Party – Awami League’s Student Union – Bangladesh Chatra League members.

On Dec 18, a fast track court in Dhaka being Speedy Trial Tribunal-4,  sentenced eight BCL activists to death and thirteen others to life imprisonment for killing tailor Biswajit Das (24 yrs) in Old Dhaka’s Bahadur Shah Park area,  a year ago during the opposition’s blockade on December 9, 2012 .

Sentencing the activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), the student union of ruling Awami League, the judge observed that the Biswajit murder case was quite sensitive and different from other lawsuits.

The cold blooded crime against a minority Hindu youth was committed in broad daylight by the ruling side, as an usual attack upon the minority people in Bangladesh, especially upon Hindu minorities by fundamental elements in any political party. It was a heinous and deplorable killing, said the court about the incident that happened during the opposition’s blockade on black day of December 9 last year.

From this verdict of the Court, it is crystal clear that Minority Hindus of Bangladesh are not even safe in the Awami Rule alike the Jamaat-BNP regimen.

Out of the 8 condemned killers for ‘hang to death’, 2 are absconding, while 11 of the 13 convicts, who got life term, are also on the run.

The court observed that footage of the murder that had been broadcast on national and international media shocked all. The brutality of the offence had tarnished the country’s image before the entire world.

Delivering the verdict in a jam-packed courtroom around 12.25 pm, the judge observed that Biswajit’s murder was different from other such cases, given the gruesomeness and brutality of the crime. “Considering the gravity of the offences, the tribunal thinks justice would be served by awarding death penalty to the accused,” the judge said.

Most of those convicted were former students of Jagannath University and obviously involved in Awami League politics.

The judge said it would be unjust for the victim’s family, if the convicts were freed, because of their political affiliations. “If the convicts are released without justice, such kind of gruesome killings will take place across the country from time to time,” he added.

BCL members behind the Biswajit Killing

Those (8) awarded the death sentence are Rafiqul Islam Shakil,  Mahfuzur Rahman alias Nahid, Emdadul Haque alias Emdad, GM Rasheduzzaman alias Shaon, Md Shaiful Islam and Kayyum Mia alias Tipu. Rajan Talukdar and Mir Mohammad Noor-e-Alam alias Limon.  Of them, Talukdar and Limon are absconding. Those given life sentences were also fined Tk 20,000 each.

Those (13) sentenced to life in prison are Golam Mostafa, AHM Kibria, Yunus Ali, Tarik Bin Johor Tomal, Alauddin, Obaidur Qader Tahsin, Imran Hossain, Azizur Rahman, Al-Amin, Rafiqul Islam, Kamrul Hasan, Monirul Haque Pavel, and Mosharraf Hossain. Execept Mostofa and Kibria, the rest have been absconding since the killing. The 13 have been also proven guilty in another case of illegal assembling and awarded six months in jail and Tk 500 fine for each.

Biswajit was killed within an extreme Islamic exaltation of killing a Kaffir (Hindu). The brutality seen in the video footage amounts all the Islamic brutality so far. But, the media both in Bangladesh and India are silent about the extinction of minority Hindus through killing, raping, looting, terrorizing, evacuating and all other Islamic norms applicable for the kaffirs as per Islamic belief.

The hands of all political parties in Bangladesh are  soaked with the blood of Hindu minorities. It is more than true and hard rock Islamic reality that the minority Muslim people are always blood thirsty of minority non-Muslim people.

Talking to media, Biswajit’s elder brother Uttam Kumar Das expressed satisfaction at the judgment in the sensational murder case. “I am satisfied…we got justice. We want immediate execution of the verdict. We urge the government to arrest the remaining convicts, who are on the run”, he added.

During a world-wide condemnation of Biswajit killing, on December 13, 2012, Prime Minister’s Press Secretary Abul Kalam Azad made a startling statement, claiming that no BCL or Awami activists were involved in Bishwajit’s murder.

Speaking to reporters at the Prime Minister’s Office, he gave particulars of six alleged murderers, including two ex-members of Islami Chhatra Shibir, a pro-Jamaat-e-Islami student body.

But, the truth has been revealed through the Court verdict for Biswajit murder in daylight that fake assurance of Bangladesh Prime Minister Seikh Hasina of Awami League has no substance for the protection of Hindu minorities in Bangladesh while the Hindus are brutally killed by the same Awami student outfit Bangladesh Chatra League.

Hindu Existence condemned the killing of Biswajit instantly with a global protest and from the beginning Hindu Existence categorically pointed out the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) and Awami League connection with Biswajit murder.

But, it is now a prime question whether the ruling Awami League will guard their party cadres or to redeem its sin of Biswajit killing. According to Bangladesh law, the High Court must review death penalties even if the convicts do not appeal against the lower court’s verdicts.

Hindu minorities are being brutally attacked in Bangladesh after Quader Molla’s hanging.

Posted by hinduexistence on December 13, 2013

War Criminal - Butcher of Mirpur, Abdul Quader Molla hanged to death. Gross violence in Bangladesh leading to a civil war. Helpless Hindu minorities are being attacked in many places.  

Quader Molla hangedUpananda Brahmachari | Kolkata | Dec 13, 2013:: Jamaat-Shibir men and its Islamist allies resorted to vandalism, arson and attacks on cops and the opponent groups including Hindu minorities in different places of the country leaving at least seven dead soon after the Supreme Court cleared the way for executing war criminal Abdul Quader Molla who was executed finally on Thursday at dot 10-01 pm BST at Dhaka Central jail.

Abdul Quader Molla was know as Mirpurer Kasai (Butcher of Mirpur). As per source he killed 3 times much Muslim than Hindus at the time of BD Struggle for Independence as reported. Kader was a dangerous Jamatee and Rajakar as well. These people supported Pakistan and opposed BD liberation.

On May 28, last year, the tribunal framed six charges that include: the killing of Mirpur Bangla College student Pallab; the killing of the poet Meherunesa, her mother and two brothers; the killing of journalist Khandker Abu Taleb; a mass killing in Ghatarchar of Keraniganj; the killing of 344 people in Alubdi village in Mirpur; and the killing of Hazrat Ali Laskar, his wife, three daughters and two-year-old son.

The International Crimes Tribunal-2 found Molla guilty on five charges and acquitted him on one charge related to the Ghatarchar killing, and sentenced him to life imprisonment. But the Supreme Court found him guilty on all charges and awarded him death for killing Hazrat Laskar and his family members.

Reuters reported that the authority of “Bangladesh executed Islamist opposition leader Abdul Quader Molla on Thursday for war crimes he committed in 1971, in a move likely to spark more violent protests less than a month before elections are due to be held.

Molla was hanged at Dhaka Central Jail after a dramatic week. He won a reprieve on Tuesday hours before he was sent to the gallows.

After two days of  legal argument, the Supreme Court rejected his application for a review of the death penalty.”

War criminal Quader didn’t wince once, neither did his heart skip a beat when he led his men to thrash a two-year-old child to death and slit the throats of a pregnant woman and two minor girls in the whirlwind in 1971.

Around 42 years later, Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Molla finally had to pay for these acts of cold-blooded savagery, as he walked the gallows at 10:01pm in the first-ever execution in a war crimes case.

The bad news coming from Bangladesh. The execution of Quader Molla triggered the deadly violence in Bangladesh in a very wide range. Dhaka, Satkhira, Coxbazar, Khulna, Comilla, Chittagong, Noakhali are the most affected areas where the peaceful and apolitical minority Hindus are being attacked under the repercussion of hanging of Quader Molla.

Quader Molla hanged. BD minorities attacked again.

As reported in Kalaer Kantha (a Bengali daily newspaper), the Hindu minorities in Khuruskul Hindu village in Coxbazar were attacked after the news of Quader’s execution spread in the air. After 10-30 pm of Thursday, the Jammat activist  attacked the house of some relatives of  Swapan Pal in Palpara. The armed Jammati perpetrators ransacked at 10 houses and shops in Palpara and Timebazar. The attackers looted the shops and set fire in households. Dadul Das, the president of Coxbazar Hindu Festival Committee (Hindu Puja Udjaapan Samity) conveyed the insecurity of the resident minority Hindus under an Islamic threat perception increasing day by day.

In a separate reporting the a reporter of Kalaer Kantha  reported the attack on minority Hindus in Jugipara in Satkhira as an aftermath of Quader Molla’s hanging on Thrusday. The Jamaat activists attacked the Hindu minority citizen and put fire in four Hindu houses. The perpetrators blocked the roads by putting huge trunks of road-side trees to put hurdles to rescue operation by police and RAB (rapid action battalion).

The situations in Bangladesh is rapidly changing in the face of an apprehended civil war in Bangladesh. The Jamaat-e-Islami of Bangladesh announced that it would hold a gayebana janaza for its assistant secretary general, war criminal Abdul Quader Mollah, today and enforce a countrywide shutdown on Sunday.

The turmoil in Bangladesh sparks tension in neighbouring West Bengal too.

The Kolkata police have sounded a high alert after the hanging of Jamaat-e-Islami leaser Abdul Quader Molla in Dhaka Central Jail.

The city has witnessed many protest demonstrations in the past few months against the Bangladesh war crimes trials.

Organisations like the West Bengal Minority Youth Federation have spearheaded these protests, even submitting memorandum to the Bangladesh deputy High Commission in city’s Bangabandhu Sarani (previously Circus Avenue) to stop the trials.

Kolkata has a strong population of Urdu-speaking Muslims, many of whom fled Bangladesh after it was born during the 1971 Liberation War against Pakistani forces.

Jamaat enjoys considerable support among them.

Kolkata police commissioner Surojit Kar Purkayastha is said to have asked for heightened security at the Bangladesh deputy high commission.

The deputy high commission in Kolkata  is housed in a historic building where Bengali diplomats revolted against Pakistan and set up the first diplomatic outpost of the provisional government of Bangladesh in exile.

Quader

Other areas with high concentration of Urdu-speaking Muslims like Park Circus, Metizbruz, Gardenrich, Tiljala, Taltola and Rajabazar have been identified for intense security, police officials said.

The intensifying political crisis in Bangladesh  with the ensuing elections there is producing  sectarian violence  and the attacks on minorities. Meanwhile, the court cancels the registration of Jamaat-e-Islami which is no more eligible to participate in the vote . Many a Jamaat leaders are awaiting in the  death-row for their conviction in war crimes. The situations will go grim further with the head counts.

The Union Home Ministry  in India apprehends a  sabotage in India  as a retaliation of Jammat for their set back in Bangladesh.  In a very revealing report from Intelligence source, it  is told that the exiled Jammatis are trying a ‘Hindu killing field mission’ by making juvenile suicide squad. Out of  a workable plan,  Bangladesh Jamaat operators will make  inroads in West Bengal using this region as a transit zone.

To prevent the cross border terrorism,  militant infiltration and Muslim influx in  India from Bangladesh, BSF has to tighten surveillance in West Bengal-Bangladesh border. As per report,  Jamaat-e-Islam has a networking among 108 Islamic outfits covering Afghan Council, Council of the Islamic Revolution , the Islamic Jihad Group , Awakening of Muslim People, Indian Mujaheddin, Rohingya Islamic Front. Some of these organizations have their secret organization to make an Islamic state in India.

Some Muslim organisations like Popular Front of India, All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen, All India United Democratic Front, Jammat-e-Islami-Hind expressed their softness to the War criminals of Bangladesh as they were all the Sahaba (Lieutenant)  of Islam. Many of these organisations are covertly connected with their Bangladeshi counterparts to accomplish a Jihad in India en route west Bengal.

In this critical juncture of post Quader hanging in Bangladesh, the pro-Hindu organisations in India and the International Hindu Community must raise their voice to stop attack on minority Hindus in Bangladesh and the total restrain of Jehadi activities in India, especially in the  porous International border areas of West Bengal and Bangladesh.

The hanging of Quader Molla is the easiest prey for the supporters of Jamat-BNP fundamentals for attacking minority Hindus in Bangladesh. As per reports of Bangladesh media, Hindus are being attacked ruthlessly in many places. If Bangladesh may enter into a havoc civil war again, the  minority  Hindus will be the gross victim. But, Indian media, particularly Bengali media of Kolkata will be busy with the minority rights in India.

Indeed, it is a hard time for the minority Hindu-Buddhist-Christians in Bangladesh. We have to share their persecution to protect them.

As a matter of fact, the Rally set to be nullified to avoid any displeasure the fundamentalist Muslims here in West Bengal.

Count down for a Hindu-less Bangladesh. One million Hindu minorities vanished from Bangladesh in just one decade.

Posted by hinduexistence on December 8, 2013

One million Hindu minorities vanished from Bangladesh in last decade. Is it a count down for a Hindu-less Bangladesh?

~ Upananda Brahmachari. 

Attacks after attacks upon Hindu minorities in recent times

304

With a great danger posing to their existence as citizen of Bangladesh, the minority Hindus have been kept under attack, allegedly by activists of Jamaat-e-Islami and its students wing, in Patgram, northern Lalmonirhat district, for the second time in the last month, mainstream Bangladesh newspapers highlighted the matter all along. The first major attack in the same district on Hindus in the recent turmoil in Bangladesh, was made at in Satpatki Majhipara in Lalmonirhat on Nov 4, 2013.

In Patgram, the attackers beat up Hindu women and children and torched and looted at least five shops and two houses at Ghoshpara village on the third day of the opposition-sponsored recently held 71-hour blockade, said the dailies quoting police and eyewitnesses .

The incident fueled concerns over a fresh spell of attacks on the minority Hindus as men of the village have fled in fear.

Again if you consider the cases of last month as reported by Sri Rabindranath Ghosh, a Hindu Human Rights activist and an advocate of Bangladesh Supreme Court, you cant simply imagine the present situation of Minority Hindus Bangladesh really.

The email as sent by Mr Ghosh to our mail box 0n 30th Nov, narrates the below:

“Hindu Deities (Murthi) broken/set on fire by unknown perpetrators at Shahjadpur and Rangulnia Upazila of  both Serajgonj and Chittagong districts on 26th November, 2013 ( The Daily Protom Alo dated 28.11.2013)

A sense of insecurity amongst the Hindu communities at Rangunia and Shahjadpur prevailing,because their places of worships and deities were broken, desecrated and set on fire by unidentified perpetrators.More than 11 Hindu deities were broken on last Tuesday to defame their religion. As a result the belongings of the Temple were set ablaze.

It is alleged that  “Uttaar Para Kali Mondir” and” Hari Mondir” at Shahjadpur within the district of Serajgonj are the oldest ( two hundred years old) situated. Side by side two temples were attacked on Tuesday night and eleven statues of Hindu deities were broken and set fire on the houses of Shebait –Sree Jowtish Chandra Ghosh and Aynal

Persecution upon BD Hindu Minorities

Hossain before they escaped. As soon as the fire broke out neighbour came at the spot and tried to control the fire from further extinguishing.

In Rangunia Upazila another Temple named “Rajjwa Bhawan Shib Temple” at Rajanagar was attacked on the same night on Tuesday by some unknown perpetrators, the belongings and utensils were stolen and the temple was vandalized.

I, on behalf of Bangladesh Minority Watch (BDMW) and Global Human Rights Defense (GHRD) enquired about the situation. The Assistant Superintendent of Police, Shahjadpur Circle Md. Zillur Rahman informed me, on query, over cell phone No.01713374036 said that a case number 20, dated 27.11.13 under section 295/297 of Bangladesh penal code started but they could not arrest any perpetrators. Md. Zillur also gave me to understand that only two Hindu deities were broken not eleven, but the local people informed us that 11 deities were broken and damaged. But expressed inability to apprehend the criminals to justice as their names are not mentioned in the F.I.R. No accused has yet been apprehended.

Bangladesh Minority Watch also contacted with Md. Waliullah Oli,Officer in Charge of Rangunia Police station at Chittagong over his cell number 01713373645 who game me to understand that a case has been recorded under section 295/336/224 of Bangladesh Penal code without mentioning the names of the accused. No person has yet been arrested.

Bangladesh Minority Watch is very much concerned about the attack on religious places of Minority communities at Shahjadpur and Rangunia and we also demand immediate arrest of the perpetrators and they should be brought to book as per law.”

The email exactly reflected the agony and anxiety of  Bangladeshi Hindus.

In Bonogram bazaar in Santhia upazila, about 40 kilometres from Pabna sadar, Hindus were attacked in Pabna on 2nd Nov, as ‘Jamaat-BNP men’ used false Facebook post concoction for rampage upon frightened Hindu minorities.

The series of persecution upon Bangladeshi Hindu minorities by the majority Muslim persecutors are endless.

No reason or only reason to attack the minority to make a Hindu Less Bangladesh 

hindus-in-attack

For the case of Lalmonir Hat, the minority leaders alleged that the villages had come under attack for ‘no specific reason’. However, local union Parishad Chairman Ruhul Amin Babul said, taking the advantage of countrywide blockade they attacked the Hindus who do not belong to any political party. “They did so to create panic in the area and use that to their advantage,” the chairman concluded.

Another minority village also came under havoc where Hindus were allegedly attacked by BNP and Jamaat-Shibir men on October 27 in Shafinagar under the same district, in the first day of the opposition-called shutdown. The vandals beat 12 women as the males fled the scene.

Quoting police and eyewitnesses, newspapers said about 200 to 250 Jamaat-Shibir activists led by Shibir leader Rana Islam brought out a procession in the area and swooped on Hindus’ shops and houses. A number of aggrieved villagers alleged that some local Awami League men, too, were responsible for inciting the violence.

The case of Bonogram bazaar in Santhia upazila had an uniqueness of Islamic rumouring as it was leveled  blasphemy against an innocent minor Hindu boy. Was that a ‘fundamentalism without reason’?

But, for the cases of Serajgonj and Chittagong, Sri Rabibdra Ghosh categorically stated over telephone that the recent spate of communal violence  arising out of the BNP-Awami League political tussle, is nothing but a ‘definite conspiracy’, leading to an end of Bangladesh Hindus very soon, if not checked.

The voice of Sri Ghosh seemed to me very frightened and a matter of fact that Sri Ghsoh was attacked several times by Muslims goons to stop his Hindu defense activities through legal and rights movement.

While this is a reality for a Rights activist and Advocate of Supreme Court, the common Hindu minorities of Bangladesh have the only way to flee from their home and hearth under a silent exodus.

In his article “Future Of The Hindus In Bangladesh” written in Sri Lanka Gurdian, Mr. Swadesh Roy, Executive Editor, the Daily Janakantha, Dhaka, Bangladesh has hinted such trend of Hindus about to leave Bangladesh.

But, if you talk about this trend of exodus of Hindus from Bangladesh, no Govt authority is ready to accept this truth. Whether it is Bangladesh Govt. or the authorities of India, who are very apathetically sinner for this final countdown  for Hindu-less Bangladesh.

One million Hindu minorities have been vanished from Bangladesh in just last decade

BD Hindus fleeing to IndiaIf you want to talk about the silent Hindu exodus from Bangladesh or the Hindu genocide in Bangladesh, the others suspect the reason behind. So far the Hindu minorities have been benefiting  the political gain for both the country Bangladesh and India. While these refugees or the non-legalized Hindus coming from Bangladesh are treated by the politicians as an instrumental of voting in West Bengal (even some portions of Delhi and Mumbai also), in Bangladesh these minority Hindus are treated as kaffir, jimmi and the resource for bare exploitation and pleasure in the hands of majority Muslims there.

But, the scale of such exodus or the genocide have been recorded by very authenticate version, which cannot be denied.

As per Dr. Sabyasachi Ghosh-Dastidar’s book, ”Empire’s last casualty: Indian subcontinent’s vanishing Hindu and other minorities”s, over three million Hindus have been killed in the process of Islamisation in the area now known as Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan) since India was Partitioned in 1947. This loss of three million lives remain suppressed from the world. This book claimed a huge 49 Million Hindus Missing From Bangladesh Census due to Islamic atrocities.

But, most recently, the Biggest Hindu Genocide in modern-times has been exposed. 10 million Hindus were massacred by Pakistan Army in Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971.

In his research book,  ”The Blood Telegram: Nixon, Kissinger and a Forgotten Genocide”, writer Gary J Bass holds the truth that ahead of Bangladesh’s liberation in 1971, the Pakistani Army systematically committed genocide of the Hindu community in the then East Pakistan and the Nixon Administration kept a blind eye to it.

WB State BJP gave deputation to Bangladesh High Commission to stop atrocities upon Hindus and other minorities in BD. Warns to block supplies if tortures continue.

Posted by hinduexistence on December 6, 2013

Bengal BJP submits memorandum with the Bangladesh Deputy High Commission & organises protest rally against the latest wave of violence on Bangladesh Hindus & other minorities .

 884354_778109445547966_1413395571_o 884354_778109448881299_1062810054_o 884354_778109452214632_1729357245_o

Upananda Brahmachari & Krishanu Mitra | Kolkata | Dec 5, 2013 :: A delegation of West Bengal State BJP leaders lead by State President Sri Rahul Sinha & National Executive member Sri Tathagata Roy met with the resident Deputy High Commissioner of Bangladesh  Abu Nasar Md. Anowarul Islam in Kolkata today and submitted a memorandum regarding the latest wave of violence against minority Hindus by Islamists. The delegation highlighted the series of atrocities against Hindus as reported in mainline Bangladeshi newspapers to the Hon’ble Dy. High Commissioner. The situation is so grave that the mandarins in the West Bengal government has already been alerted by the Intelligence agencies over another round of refugee influx in the border areas.

The other members of the delegation were Smt Gouri Chowdhury (National Executive member, BJP), Sri Badsha Alam (Vice President, WB State BJP), Sri Samik Bhattacharya (Spokesperson, WB State BJP), Sri  Subrato Chattopadhaya (Executive member, WB State BJP) and Sri Shalil Ansari (President, WB State BJP, Minority Cell).

The memorandum categorically indicates the ongoing attack upon Hindus, Buddhists and Christians including murder, rape, desecration of temples and shrines, forceful encroachment of properties and evacuation of Minorities of Bangladesh. The memorandum highlighted the genocides in Noakhali & Chandpur (1946), killing, mass rape and atrocities upon Hindu communities held time to time in Bangladesh in the year 195, 1964 & 1971 in the East Pakistan regime and 1992, 2001 and 2013 in Bangladesh regime.

In the memorandum it is stated that a section of Bangladesh rooted intellectuals, writers and activists like Shariar Kabir, Muntasir Manoon, Humayun Azad, Salam Azad, Ratanlal Chakroborty and Ajoy Roy have been highlighting the attack and persecution upon minorities in Bangladesh in different forums. But unfortunately,  the Bangladesh minorities are not never feeling their safety, security and honour anyway.

Later a protest demonstration was organised by the BJP in the College Street area of Kolkata over the issue. The entire state leadership was  present  in this protests and several of them including Sri Rahul Sinha & Sri Tathagata Roy addressed the gathering. All the speakers highlighted the plight of the orphaned Hindus of Bangladesh and the sheer indifference and criminal silence of other political parties under the garb of competitive secular appeasement politics.

Both the time in deputation and in the protest rally, the BJP leaders press hard  that the First Constitution of Bangladesh as adopted in 1971 by Banga Bandhu Mujibar Rehaman should be restored again by rejecting the present constitution which declares Islam as a State Religion of Bangladesh.

The speakers in the protest rally criticize the role of present Govt. of West Bengal led by Mamata Banerjee of Trinmool Congress, which is completely silent over the persecution of minorities in a neighboring country.  The speakers say the the minorities of the Bangladesh are the relatives of the majority people of West Bengal. If any repercussion is created here in West Bengal for the apprehending exodus of Bangladesh Hindus, the situation can go beyond control.

Latter speaking to press, senior party leader and spokesperson Sri Samik Bhattacharya said that if the attack and atrocities on our Hindu  brotherens  are not stopped immediately and the Bangladesh government doesn’t take adequate measures towards the security and safety of  Hindus  and other minorities then the BJP will go for large-scale agitation through out West Bengal and if need be may call for blockade of all supplies to Bangladesh through West Bengal.

Statement from the U.S. Embassy Dhaka: Urges to stop Attack on Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh.

Upananda Brahmachari | Dhaka | 07 Nov 2013:: The United States expressed deep concern over the recent attacks on Hindus in Pabna and Lalmonirhat and asked the government to take action against the criminals and protect rights of minorities.

In a statement released on Wednesday, 6th Nov, the US embassy said, “We call on all those involved in these incidents to desist from abusing the rights of minorities, and ask all parties to ensure they are stopped immediately and the perpetrators are held accountable.”

“We ask the Government of Bangladesh to act authoritatively against those who incited and committed this violence and protect the rights of minorities.” – the statement ascertained the crucial intimidation on the marginal Hindu minorities about to flee from Bangladesh to find a safer place in Bharat.

The US embassy further said they were also “deeply concerned by the deaths, injuries, and ongoing violence associated with hartals.”

“While engaging in peaceful protest is a fundamental democratic right, we firmly believe violence is never the answer,” the statement added.

“We call on all parties to ensure that their protests are peaceful and we look to the Government of Bangladesh to ensure the safety of all its citizens and encourage all Bangladeshis to peacefully express their views,” said the statement.

While the US Govt. is deeply concerned with the attacks on Hindu minorities in Bangladesh, a blind Indian Govt. is worthlessly keeping silence. They have many issues like CHOGM, coming elections, Communal Violence Bill, minority rights in India, but they never make out some seconds to think over the fatal fate of the Hindu minorities of Bangladesh or their rights truncated out.

The post pronouncement (from the beginning of the death sentence ordered to  1971 war criminal Delwar Hossian Sayeedi to the 152 soldiers for mutiny crimes in 2009) conflicts between the ruling Awami League and the opposition lead by Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), always tormented the fate of the decreasing Hindu minorities in Bangladesh in a regular basis.

Hindu properties are  always in the direct target of BNP-Jamaat or Awami League in disguise

Hindu properties are always in the direct target of BNP-Jamaat or Awami League in disguise.

Though the ‘Jamaat-BNP men’ were allegedly accused for all the major attacks upon the Hindu minorities in recent, the so-called friends of Hindus and ruling Awami League has been completely failure to give any safe guards to the persecuted Hindus in Pabna or Lalmonirhat.

On 3rd Nov, a Muslim mob, frenzied by a baseless claim that a Hindu boy disrespected Prophet Muhammad, tore apart the corrugated iron sheet walls of a Hindu house at Bonogram in Santhia of Pabna Upazila, in order to vandalize the Hindu house hold and to spread fear among the Hindu minorities.  The fanatic Muslim  claimed one Rajib Saha, son Babul Saha had maligned Prophet Mohammad in a facebook page.

A mob went on the rampage in Bonogram-Santhia Hindu- dominated neighbourhood  following reports that the boy from the minority Hindu community had committed blasphemy, prompting the country’s High Court to order arrest of attackers within 24 hours.

The Muslim mob satiated themselves by vandalizing 26 houses, damaging several idols in temples and private houses and and forcing about 150 families to flee the area. The incident prompted the High Court to take suo motu cognizance, asking the Inspector General of Police to ensure the arrest of the culprits within 24 hours and deployment of adequate police forces in the area to protect the minorities. “We have arrested nine of the perpetrators of the attack in the past two days and are looking for the others,” officer in-charge of the local police station Rezaul Karim told Indian News Agency, PTI.

Rajib Saha is a class-X student of Bonogram Miapur High School, preparing for SSC examination and his father, Babul  has  a shop  in the Bonogram Bazaar.

Attack and Atrocities upon Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh are all time high.

Attack and Atrocities upon Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh are all time high.

Soon, hundreds of people stormed Babul Saha’s house in Bonogram. Unable to find the boy, the mob got hold of Babul and took him to the bazaar. There, he was warned that he and his son would be tried for “defaming the prophet”.

Despite protesting repeatedly that his son was innocent, Babul was mercilessly hit and kicked upon. At one stage, some locals intervened to save him and confined him to a shop.

In the meanwhile, another gang of Jamaat e Islami and BNP, more aggressive and violent, set fire to Babul’s house. Later, more gangs joined in to attack the predominantly Hindu village and vandalized about 26 homesteads.

Police and RAB (Rapid Action Battalion) reached  to the spot after the fundamentalists completed their Islamic duties  to the Hindu kaffirs as prescribed in the unholy parts of Quran.

The Daily Star, a leading news paper in Bangladesh has found that the Facebook page whose photocopies were used to incite the attacks on the Bonogram Hindu community has no links with Rajib. [Details here.]

Basudev Dhar reports in Dainik Statesman that the attack on Saha family of Bonogram is nothing but a planned conspiracy which was hatched out of a denial of paying a ransom of Rupees Two lakhs as claimed by some Muslim hooligans at the time the marriage of his daughter some months back. As Babul Saha, a rich businessman of Bonogram Market denied to pay that unreasonable amount, the perpetrators threatened him for a dire consequences. Consequently, the attack on Saha family came to them and others during the hartal hegemony.

Actually, the BNP-Jamaat supported Muslim perpetrators and even the communal elements in others parties regularly collect the life-saving tax (read Jizya) from the Hindu minorities under severe pressure and persecution.

On 4th Nov 2013, at least 15 people, including six women, were injured when some BNP men stormed a Hindu village and vandalized and looted houses at Satpatki Majhipara under Lalmonirhat Sadar upazila.

Villagers complained that they came under attack as they refused to pay an extortion demand by the BNP men.

Traumatized by the violent attack, Hindu women and children of 125 families fled the village and took refuge in Muslim neighbours’ houses at a nearby village, said Jamir Uddin, officer-in-charge at Lalmonirhat Sadar Police Station.

But, it has been reported that extradited Hindu victims in their new refuge again face humiliation, molestation, taxation, persecution and all morbid situations.

Armed with sharp local weapons, a gang of about 18 BNP men, led by local Chhatra Dal activist Shaon Islam, struck the village around 12:30pm. They ransacked about 40 houses and looted valuables from those, said witnesses.

The Daily Star reporter covered the incident from ground level while villagers took an injured Hindu man to hospital at Satpatki Majhipara in Lalmonirhat. Villagers claimed that armed BNP and Jamaat men attacked 40 homes of the Hindus and looted valuables after the Hindus refused to be extorted by them. [Details here.]

Basudev Dhar, the Senior Correspondent of Dainik Statesman, Dhaka desk informed that the BNP-Jamaat activists were forcefully collecting money as the expenditure of the hartal. As the Hindus were not ready to give the same, the angry Jamaat-BNP activists plan fully victimized the minority people there.

In the last week, 18 shops of Hindus torched in Lalmonirhat amidst the hartal, turned as an easy prey to to attack minority Hindus of Bangladesh.

Opposition activists allegedly torched and looted at least 18 shops owned by people of Hindu people in Patgram upazila of Lalmonirhat early Monday on 28th Oct.

While leaving, the attackers whom the victims identified as “BNP-Jamaat activists” also threatened the shop owners with dire consequences if they disclose their names to police.

Locals said there were at least 50 shops in Shafinagar Bazar but the attackers torched and looted only the shops owned by the people of Hindu community.

A victim told  that a group of BNP and Jamaat men entered the market and set fire to the shops without any provocation. “Some of them were wearing black masks,” he said.

But the man declined to disclose names of the attackers fearing further attacks. Sohrab Hossain, officer-in-charge of Patgram Police Station said he heard about the incident but could not send any force there due to shortage of police members.

Sanjay Dutt, general secretary of Bawra union unit of ruling Awami League, blamed BNP and Jamaat activists for torching the shops. But, Shamsul Alam, president of Bawra union unit of BNP, however denied the allegation.

It has been reported that on the same day of 28th Oct, in Narinda area of Old Dhaka, the Bhagyakul Mistanna Bhandar (Sweets shop of a Hindu owner), near Gaudiya Math was rampaged and partially looted by the supporters on BNP-Jamaat activists, while a rally was passing there in support of hartal.

In a protest of Pabna and Lalmonirhat attack on Hindu Minorities, the Bangladesh Hindu-Bauddha-Christian Oikya Parishad (BHBCOP) and Bangladesh Puja Udjapan Parishad (BPUP) organized a human chain, demonstration and press meet at National Press Club, Dhaka on Tuesday, 5th Nov.

The leadership of BHBCOP and BPUP alleged that the Hindus have been victimized since 1975 on the basis on fanatic propaganda of Islam and communal politics of BNP-Jammat, as a result of which a huge numbers of Hindu minorities were compelled to leave Bangladesh. All the parties more or less ignored the interest of Hindus and other minorities of Bangladesh.

The leadership pointed out that all parties are same including ruling Awami League.  At the time of mishap and tragedy of the Hindus in Pabna, the Minister of State, Home Department, Mr. Shamsul Islam Tuku was present at the distance of 15 minutes from the place of occurrence. But, he did not reach there to help or rescue the victimized Hindus and his police reached there after 3 hours later. The attitude of all the political parties are really embarrassing to the existing Hindu minorities in Bangladesh.

In this demonstration before National Press Club, Prof. Nimchandra Bhowmik, Advocate Rana Dasgupta, Advocate Subrota Choudhury, Kajal Debnath and Basudev Dhar delivered their lectures and demanded a free and fair Bangladesh without any discrimination upon the minorities there.

But, it is very much astonishing that the mysterious Hindus Parliamentarians of Bangladesh have never expressed their views publicly over the atrocities upon Hindu people there. There are seven Hindu MPs in Bangladesh, 3 from BNP and  4 from Awami League.

Lists of Hindu MPs of Bangladesh are given below. The readers should knock them.

Bir Bahadur, Business. Bangladesh Awami League. Parbattya Bandarban, Seat-300
Dhirendra Nath Shaha, Business and Agriculture. Bangladesh Nationalist Party. Narail-1, Seat-93

………………..

To keep the protests alive and effective against the atrocities, abominations and attacks upon minority Hindus, the Bangladesh National Grand Hindu Alliance will organize a big agitation on Friday, 8th November at 10 a.m. before the National Press Club, Dhaka. Simultaneously, the Bangladesh Hindu-Baudhha-Christian Kalyan Front will organize Protest Meeting all over Bangladesh  from 11 am to 2 pm on Saturday, 9th Nov.

In a press release, Advocate Gautam Chakroborty of  BD HBC Kalyan Front conveyed that whenever a political crisis happens in the country, only the Hindu , Buddhist and Christian  temple, shrines and worship places are attacked by Muslim fanatics. They want to create a communal division in the country.

The statement condemned the attacks upon Budhhists and Hindus in  Ramu , Ukhiya , Teknaf  and Patiya in recent past one after another, burning of the traditional temple and scriptural books, attack upon business, households, temples and lives of Hindus in Santhia in Pabna district and physical assault, arson on  Hindu community houses of Bonogram recently and the havoc upon Hindus of Lalmonirhat. It’s really sad . The organisation demanded the punishment for perpetrators found guilty through judicial investigation.

From a reliable source it is known that the Central Govt of India has alerted the Border Security Force (BSF)  in the eastern sector to check any apprehended exodus or infiltration as a result of the recent turmoil ongoing in Bangladesh.

The Biggest Hindu Genocide in modern-times Exposed. One Crore Hindus were massacred by Pakistan Army in Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971.

Posted by hinduexistence on October 22, 2013

Not Bengalis, Hindus were Pakistani targets in 1971 Bangladesh War, claims new book.

The Blood TelegramPTI |  Washington | 16 Oct 2013:: Ahead of Bangladesh’s liberation in 1971, the Pakistani Army systematically committed genocide” of the Hindu community in the then East Pakistan and the Nixon Administration kept a blind eye to it, a new book says.

While the Indian Government was aware of it, it tried to play it down and instead referred to it as genocide against the Bengali community in Bangladesh so as to avoid an outcry from the leaders of the then Jan Sangh, the predecessor of the today’s main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party, says Gary J Bass, author of the book ‘The Blood Telegram: Nixon, Kissinger and a Forgotten Genocide’, which recently hit the book stores.

“Rather than basing this accusation primarily on the victimisation of Hindus, India tended to focus on the decimation of the Bengalis as a group,” Bass, who is professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton University, says.

“The Indian foreign ministry argued that Pakistan’s generals, having lost an election because their country had too many Bengalis, were now slaughtering their way to ‘a wholesale reduction in the population of East Bengal’ so that it would no longer comprise a majority in Pakistan,” said Bass.

As the Pakistan Army continued with the systematic targeting of the Hindu community, the book says, Indian officials did not want to provide further ammunition to the irate Hindu nationalists in the Jana Sangh party.

“From Moscow, D P Dhar, India’s ambassador there, decried the Pakistan army’s pre-planned policy of selecting Hindus for butchery, but, fearing inflammatory politicking from rightist reactionary Hindu chauvinist parties like Jana Sangh, he wrote, ‘We were doing our best not to allow this aspect of the matter to be publicised in India’,” Bass writes in his book.

The then US Consul General in Dhaka, Archer Blood, according to the book, thought, no logic to this campaign of killings and expulsions of the Hindus, who numbered about ten million – about 13 per cent of East Pakistan’s population.

“They were unarmed and dispersed around East Pakistan. But the Hindus were tainted by purported association with India, and were outliers in a Pakistani nation defined in Muslim terms,” he wrote.

“Lieutenant General Tikka Khan, the military governor leading the repression, argued that East Pakistan faced enslavement by India. He said that the outlawed Awami League would have brought the destruction of our country which had been carved out of the subcontinent as a homeland for Muslims after great sacrifices,” the book said.

It noted that “senior officers like the COAS [chief of army staff] and CGS [chief of general staff] were often noticed jokingly asking as to how many Hindus have been killed.”

“One lieutenant colonel testified that Lieutenant General A K Niazi, who became the chief martial law administrator in East Pakistan and head of the army’s Eastern Command, asked as to how many Hindus we had killed. In May, there was an order in writing to kill Hindus from a brigadier.”

Another lieutenant colonel said, “There was a general feeling of hatred against Bengalis amongst the soldiers and the officers including generals. There were verbal instructions to eliminate Hindus”, the book says.

The then US diplomats based in Dhaka wrote to both the State Department and the White House that this was nothing less than genocide against the Hindus.

“But for all the effort that Blood put into defining and documenting genocide, the terrible term had no impact at the White House,” Bass writes.

According to Bass, Blood thought that “genocide” was the right description for what was happening to the Hindus.

“He explained that the Pakistani military evidently did not make distinctions between Indians and Pakistan Hindus, treating both as enemies.”

Such anti-Hindu sentiments were lingering and widespread, Blood wrote.

According to the book, the Indian government privately believed, as this aide noted, that Pakistan, by “driving out Hindus in their millions,” hoped to reduce the number of Bengalis so they were no longer the majority in Pakistan, and to destroy the Awami League as a political force by getting rid of the wily Hindu who was supposed to have misled simple Bengali Muslims into demanding autonomy.”

“In India we have tried to cover that up,” Swaran Singh (the then External Affairs Minister) candidly told a meeting of Indian diplomats in London, “but we have no hesitation in stating the figure to foreigners.”

“Singh instructed his staff to distort for their country: We should avoid making this into an Indo-Pakistan or Hindu-Muslim conflict. We should point out that there are Buddhists and Christians besides the Muslims among the refugees, who had felt the brunt of repression.”

The Indian government feared that the plain truth would splinter its own country between Hindus and Muslims, Bass writes.

Bass says the Nixon administration had ample evidence not just of the scale of the massacres, but also of their ethnic targeting of the Hindu minority, what Blood had condemned as genocide.

The then Secretary of State Henry Kissinger once told the president himself, “Another stupid mistake he [Yahya] made was to expel so many Hindus from East Pakistan. In fact, the then US Ambassador to India told Richard Nixon in a meeting at the Oval office that their ally ‘Pakistan’ was committing genocide.

“In the Oval Office, the ambassador directly told the president of the United States and his national security advisor that their ally was committing genocide. The reason that the refugees kept coming, at a rate of 150,000 a day, was because they’re killing the Hindus. Neither Nixon nor Kissinger said anything,” the book says.

Hindu Human Rights Defender Adv. Rabindra Ghosh of BDMW poisoned in murder attempt by suspected Muslim Goons.

Posted by hinduexistence on July 30, 2013

Rabindra Ghosh – Human Rights Defender & his colleague poisoned for attempting murder on 27th July, 2013 at Natore District, Bangladesh.

Air Poisoned Sri Ghosh is being found senseless and treated in a Natore Hospital.

Air Poisoned Sri Ghosh is being found senseless and treated in a Natore Hospital.

Agencies | Natore (Bangladesh) | 29 July 2013:: Adv. Rabindra Ghosh – Founder President of BANGLADESH MINORITY WATCH and Observer of Global Human Rights Defense and his colleague Ganesh Rajbongshi was air poisoned and became senseless for 28 hours on 27th night near Natore Bus Stand while they were returning from Khulna by Train (Shimanta  Express) to Natore for monitoring another case of land grabbing from by Muslim land sharks.

Some Islamic groups in Bangladesh have been rampantly disowning the Hindus from their landed properties. Hindus in Bangladesh are facing a dire consequences under the overall threats from the Talibanic forces very much active in Bangladesh.

Soon after the incident of poising Mr. Ghosh  and Ganesh was admitted to Natore Sadar Hospital. Fire service people traced those two victims from the place of occurrence to Natore Sadar Hospital unconscious position. But Ganesh Rajbongshi was transferred to Rajshahi Medical College from Natore Sadar Hospital as his physical condition was precarious.

Now both the victims have got their senses and medical treatment is going on. Advocate Rabindra Ghosh lodged Firist information report (FIR) being Natore Sadar P.S. case No.42 dated 28.07.2013 under section 341/328/307/379/109 of Penal code against unknown perpetrators.

Mr. Ghosh and Ganesh Rajbonshi met with the Superintendent of Police, Natore who interrogated them and directed Md. Abdus Sattar, O.C. in charge –Natore Sadar for necessary action.

The news has been published in the national dailies as The Protom Alo, dated 28.07.2013, bdnews24.com dated 28.07.2013 and other ETV channels breaking news dated 27.07.13 and Bhorer Kagoj dated 28.07.2013

Bangladesh Minority Watch, Global Human Rights Defense and  Bangladesh Centre for Human Rights and Development (BCHRD) are very much concerned about repeated attack on Adv. Rabindra Ghosh and his associates. We also demand immediate arrest of the perpetrators and demand justice in the eye of law.

As per latest report, the culprits are still away from any proper identification under the blatant reluctance of the investigative and police authorities of Bangladesh under the influence of majority Muslim perpetrators.

Air poisoned victims by suspected Muslim goons.

Sri Rabindranath Ghosh joined the Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan organised by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti on 6th to 10th June in Goa, in which Sri Ghosh highlighted the matter of persecution and atrocities upon Bangladesh Hindu Minorities every effectively. Returing to Bangladesh, he had been facing various threats from Muslim fanatics to stop his normal activities to restore the rights of Bangladesh minorities including marginalized Hindus.

Hindu Existence Forum vehemently protests such Islamic attack upon Rights activities in the cause of the freedom of minority people under the onslaught of  Islamic fundamentalism.

In a press statement, Rev. Upananda Brahmachari, Chairman of Hindu Existence Forum strongly protested the attack upon Sri Rabindranath Ghosh and wish his speedy  recovery with his aides.

HRA 2013

We need Newspaper and News channel at national level, to take care of the interests of Hindus !

Vidyadhiraj Hall, Shri Ramnathi Devsthan, Goa | June 9, 2013 | Jyeshtha Shuklapaksha 1, Kaliyug Varsha 5115:: The faction of society, which is known as intellectuals, is in fact, senseless. These intellectuals spread thoughts against the interest of this nation and create confusion/ misunderstandings amongst people. They are only influencing today’s media. This is very detrimental for and causing harm to society and nation. Influence of Hindu Dharma on media has, therefore, become need of the hour and it is necessary to have at least one newspaper and one news channel that will take care of interests of Hindus. The above opinion was expressed by Shri. Upananda Brahmachari.

upnanda-br1Shri. Upanand Brahmachari said,

  1. Media is influenced by foreign powers. To make efforts to destroy this influence is also ‘Dharma-yuddha’. Small pro-Hindu newspapers should be used with proper planning for eliminating secularism in journalism.
  2. As an alternative to the secular media, social websites managed on analogous basis should now be used effectively. Hindus should, therefore, make use of their individual accounts on various websites for spread of ‘Dharma-prasar (propagation of Dharma)’ rather than using them for entertainment.
  3. Hindus should be contacted through the medium of ‘Dharma-shikshan’ and ‘Dharma-satsangs’ to impart ‘Dharma-shikshan’ to them.
  4. A Muslim immediately goes to media and starts making hue and cry when some incident occurs that is against his interests. Hindus should also make it a habit to approach media and fearlessly, without any hesitation, pronounce their problems, atrocities meted out to them.

‘हिंदुहितकी ओर ध्यान देनेवाले किसी एक राष्ट्रीय समाचारपत्र तथा समाचारप्रणालकी आवश्यकता !’

ज्येष्ठ शुक्ल १, कलियुग वर्ष ५११५  | विद्याधिराज सभागृह, श्री रामनाथ देवस्थान, गोवा :: वर्तमानमें बुद्धिवादी समझा जानेवाला समाजघटक वास्तवमें निर्बुद्ध है । ये बुद्धिवादी देशहितके विरोधमें विचार प्रसारित करते हैं और संभ्रम उत्पन्न करते हैं । इनका ही प्रभाव आजके प्रसारमाध्यमोंपर है । यह अत्यंत घातक है और सामाजिक तथा राष्ट्रीय हानिके लिए कारणभूत है । इसलिए हिंदू धर्मका प्रसारमाध्यमोंपर प्रभाव होना कालकी आवश्यकता है । अत: राष्ट्रीय स्तरपर हिंदूहित संजोनेवाला एक समाचारपत्र और एक समाचारप्रणाल आवश्यक है, ऐसा मत श्री. उपानंद ब्रह्मचारीने व्यक्त किया ।

श्री. उपानंद ब्रह्मचारीजीने कहा,

१. प्रसारमाध्यमोंपर विदेशी शक्तियोंका प्रभाव है । यह प्रभाव नष्ट करना भी एक धर्मयुद्ध ही है । पत्रकारितामें विद्यमान धर्मनिरपेक्षता नष्ट होने हेतु हिंदुत्वनिष्ठ विचारोंके छोटे-छोटे समाचारपत्रोंका नियोजनपूर्वक प्रयोग किया जाना चाहिए ।

२. धर्मनिरपेक्ष प्रसारमाध्यमोंके लिए विकल्पके रूपमें समांतर व्यवस्थासे युक्त सामाजिक सूचना जालस्थलोंका (वेबसाइटोंका) परिणामकारक प्रयोग करना चाहिए । इसलिए हिंदुओंको जालस्थलोंके (वेबसाइटोंके) व्यक्तिगत खातेका उपयोग केवल मनोरंजन कर, समय गंवानेके लिए नहीं, अपितु हिंदू धर्मके प्रसार हेतु करना चाहिए ।

३. धर्मशिक्षा और धर्मसत्संगोंके माध्यमसे हिंदुओंसे संपर्क कर उन्हें धर्मशिक्षा देनी चाहिए ।

४. मुसलमान, उनके विरोधमें कोई अनिष्ट घटनेपर प्रसारमाध्यमोंके सामने जाकर कुहराम मचा देता है, इसलिए हिंदुओंको भी उनपर हो रहे अत्याचारोंको बिना झिझक प्रसारमाध्यमोंके सामने प्रस्तुत करनेकी आदत डाल लेनी चाहिए

Demands for Bangladesh Hindus in Second Hindu Adhiveshan at Goa.

Vidyadhiraj Hall, Shri Ramnathi Devsthan, Goa June 9, 2013:: While Advocate Rabindra Ghosh of Bangladesh Minority Watch put a recommendation for the justice of persecuted BD Hindus in 2nd Hindu Adhiveshan at Goa, Shri Upananda Brahmachari of Hindu Existence, advocated for the rights of the vulnerable BD Hindus in a Islamic State of Bangladesh by placing the demands of BD Hindus as sent by the Bangladesh Hindu Grand Alliance to the ongoing Hindu Adhiveshan at Goa.

‘Why Maitri Express train to Anti-Hindu Bangladesh ?’: Shri Upananda Brahmachari.

Vidyadhiraj Hall, Shri Ramnathi Devsthan, Goa | June 7, 2013 | Vaishakh Krushnapaksha 14, Kaliyug Varsha 5115:: In Bangladesh, Muslims are terrorists. They are fighting an undercover war against Bharat from there. Still, the Government of Bharat has started a special train ‘Friendship (Maitri) Express’ in order to develop friendly relations with Bangladesh. Through this train, Muslim terrorists from Bangladesh are infiltrating in Bharat. This opinion was expressed by Shri. Upanand Brahmachari, Editor, Hindu Existence website.

Shri. Upanand Brahmachari said,

1. Three and a half crore Hindus displaced from Bangladesh are dwelling in Bharat. They have not yet been allotted status of displaced persons. As a result, they are deprived of the Bharatiya citizenship. On the contrary, Muslim infiltrators from Bangladesh enjoy all rights of citizenship in Bharat.

2. The Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar are enumerated, but the Hindus displaced from Bangladesh are not enumerated. These Hindus should be declared as displaced persons and should be granted all rights as per international regulations.

3. Two crore Hindus in Bangladesh are being persecuted inhumanely. No facilities are provided to them.

4. It is necessary to establish coordination with the Hindus displaced from Bangladesh dwelling in Bharat and persecuted Hindus in Bangladesh. Afterwards, Hindus from Bangladesh should be allotted land on ownership basis for their residence, and the administration of such land should rest fully with local Hindus.

32 dead as police clash with Bangladesh Islamists over blasphemy law. Say No to Radical Islam and Blasphemy Law. Hindus in BD are in a threat perception.

Posted by hinduexistence on May 7, 2013

Pure Islamic Fire in Bangladesh

NOT ONLY IN BANGLADESH, PROSCRIBE BLASPHEMY LAW ALL OVER THE WORLD. THIS WORLD IS NOT FOR MUSLIMS ONLY.

Press Note. The radical Islamic force of Bangladesh in the new name of Hifazat-e-Islam with the crude fundamental support of Hizbut-e-Tahirir and Jaamat-e-Islami have launched an war in Bangladesh to introduce Blashphemy Law there. These fanatic Muslim organisations want to 100% shariah law in Bangladesh to give an energy to Talibanize  Bangladesh and to save the life of a sentenced to death War Criminal, Delwar Hossain Sayeedi and would be sentenced others from Razakar and Islamist groups. Bangladesh, an absurd offshoot of the situation of so called secular country with a 90 percent Muslim population and a state religion of Islam, has seen a surge in violence between Islamists and government forces since the start of the year, when a court began handing down war crimes verdicts (hanging order for War Criminal Delwar Hossain Sayeedi) related to the 1971 independence conflict and the demand of introducing blasphemy law in Bangladesh. IN THIS WAY THE MUSLIMS ARE FIGHTING TOOTH AND NAIL BETWEEN MUSLIMS WITHIN ISLAMIC COUNTRIES TO DESTROY THE PEACE OF OTHERS. ACTUALLY ISLAM IS A BULLSHIT OF PROFANED BARBARISM. SAY NOT TO RADICAL ISLAM AND BLASPHEMY LAW.  RADICAL ISLAM AND BLASPHEMY LAW CAN MAKE A GRAVE YARD OF ALL FREE THINKING AND PEACE LOVING SOCIETY. ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE, BUT SURLY A RELIGION OF PIECE. SEE THIS SITUATION IN BANGLADESH AT PRESENT AND FEEL THE REALITY.
We apprehend an upcoming onslaught upon the  minorities (mainly Hindu-Buddhist-Christian) of Bangladesh. Minorities of Bangladesh are the soft target of the Islamist. We must save the Minorities of Bangladesh. Upananda Brahmachari. Kolkata. 6 April 2013.

32 dead as police clash with Bangladesh Islamists over blasphemy law.

War Field of Dhaka. Islamists vs BD PoliceAFP |  6 May 2013 | DHAKA: Bangladeshi police broke up a protest by tens of thousands of religious hardliners and shut down an Islamist television station Monday after 32 people died in some of the fiercest street violence for decades.

Hundreds more people were reported injured in running battles as riot police broke up the rally near a key commercial district in a pre-dawn raid.

Dozens of demonstrators were also arrested, while the leader of the protests was put on a plane to the second city Chittagong.

Hundreds of bankers, insurance officials and stock market traders had to sleep in their offices as the sound of gunfire echoed around the Motijheel Commercial Area through much of the night.

Shops and vehicles were set alight while the roads were littered with rocks that protestors had thrown at police, witnesses said.

Police said they used sound grenades, water cannon, tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse at least 70,000 Islamists who were camped at Motijheel as part of a push for a new blasphemy law.

“We were forced to act after they unlawfully continued their gathering at Motijheel. They attacked us with bricks, stones, rods and bamboo sticks,” Dhaka police spokesman Masudur Rahman said.

The protesters dispersed early Monday, he added.

Mozammel Haq, a police inspector at Dhaka Medical College Hospital, said that 11 bodies were brought to the clinic, including a policeman who had been hacked in the head with machetes.

A total of 21 other people were killed in the protests, according to an AFP toll compiled through police and medical officials.

This included eight people killed in the Kanchpur district on the southeastern outskirts of Dhaka, said the sources.

At least two people were known to have been killed in the southern coastal district of Bagerhat where police exchanged gunfire with several thousand Islamists, police spokesman Shah Alam told AFP.

A pro-Islamist television channel which broadcast live footage of the raid on Motijheel was meanwhile forced off the air in a dawn raid.

Diganta Television’s chief reporter M. Kamruzzaman said around 25 plain-clothed policemen and an official from the broadcast commission had entered their studios without warning.

The violence erupted Sunday afternoon after police tried to disperse tens of thousands of Islamists who had blocked major highways in Dhaka.

The protests had been instigated by Allama Shah Ahmad Shafi, the leader of Hefajat-e-Islam who is said to be around 90 years old.

Police managed to persuade Shafi on Monday to leave his madrassa in Dhaka, escorting him to the airport from where he was to be flown to Chittagong.

In a sign of their desire to avoid inflaming tensions, police insisted he had not been arrested but was leaving of his own volition.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has ruled out a new blasphemy law, insisting she will not cave into the demands of hardliners who have been infuriated by bloggers whom they accuse of insulting the Prophet Mohammed.

Chanting “One point, One demand: Atheists must be hanged”, activists from Hefajat-e-Islam marched along at least six highways on Sunday, effectively cutting Dhaka off from the rest of the country.

Police said the number of protesters reached around 200,000 people at one point although the numbers had dwindled by the early hours.

Social media networks were inundated with photos of bloodied Islamists lying on the streets after the crackdown.

The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, which had given its backing to Hefajat’s Dhaka blockade, on Monday accused the government of “killing hundreds of people and concealing the bodies” but gave no proof.

Fearing further violence, Dhaka police Monday banned all protests as well as the carrying of firearms until midnight.

Bangladesh, an officially secular country with a 90 percent Muslim population, has seen a surge in violence between Islamists and government forces since the start of the year, when a court began handing down war crimes verdicts related to the 1971 independence conflict.

Three leading Islamists have so far been convicted for their role in mass killings during the conflict, which saw what was then East Pakistan break from the regime in Islamabad.

The overall death toll in violence between religious hardliners and the police since January now stands at around 150.
