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.

    Aum ,

    Sooner or later this is gonna happen in India also ,because as i know the actual numbers of hindus is not as the government figure shows ,and the remaining hindus are striving for their survival ,what according to the the editor of mumbai based magazine Hindu Voice is “Wake Up Or Perish”.

    If some staunch hindu ask me for any solutions here it goes:-

    1)For the Students-From my personal experience and the authority/proof from the scriptures the hindus must train their children in the brahmacharya ,because to fight with the clever enemies you need some extra effort ,this will set the base for their mental as well as physical strength,also from their very beginning they will follow their own religion not the demonic code of conduct ,automatically this will help hindu community.
    For our survival we have to mixup the old gems as well as the present techniques to conquer the enemy.I am currently studying in an engineering college ,and what i have experienced that the 99% of hindus in my community have lost their virginity,and the remaining of them are waiting for their chance this applies to both males as well as females,as a result they are not interested in talk of any religious matter,not in any pro hindu discussion,the result if some of them got any reputed/responsible post they will become secular and donot support their own community.
    So bring the interest of hindu children into their own religion, we have to show them the hidden gems of their religion.
    By practicing brahmacharaya the total number of rape will also be automatically reduced.

    But the sad state is that very less hindu families are aware of this magical word,some of them don’t bother to think and those who does have their own theories that it is for sadhus saints only.

    Note:China is indirectly following the brahmacharay by introducing the Internet wall.

    2)For Grownups-the easy solution ,join RSS,BAJRANG DAL ,Bharat Swabhiman(Baba Ramdev),Ojasvi yuva(Asaram Bapu) there are many more..

    Join the Government jobs not army but the public servies also,
    a)Mass media(Very important need of hour)
    b)Law (Very much needed)
    c)Politics(Essential)
    d)Science and technology
    e)Ngo’s

    3)For the experienced: Move on,train the new guys ,what is the use of your experience if it will not help your community.

    What another problem with hindus is igo problem ,they will not get share any help with another hindu we must come out of it.

    Conclusion:We all know that hindus are suffering all over the world and no one will come to save you if you are not bothered about it so be prepared face the challenge.

    4 killed in post-poll violence in Bangladesh, minority leaders demand protection

    PTI : Dhaka, Mon Jan 06 2014, 16:17 hrs SmallLargePrint

    Four people were killed in Bangladesh on Monday when clashes broke out between supporters of ruling Awami League and one of its allies on the outskirts of the capital, taking the death toll to 25 in poll-related violence.

    Give Protection for Hindu Minorities in Bangladesh

    Four people, including a man and his son, were killed and 15 others wounded in a clash between activists of the ruling Awami League and its ally Jatiya Party (JP) in Dohar sub district, reports said.

    Two of the injured were sent to Dhaka in a critical condition.

    JP candidate Salma Islam, who was recently inducted in the cabinet as a junior minister, defeated Abdul Mannan Khan who was the state minister for works.

    The two contested the polls yesterday, though in most places the two parties managed to reach a consensus in fielding common candidates.

    The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP)-led 18 party alliance boycotted the polls and spearheaded a violent campaign to thwart the elections along with its key-ally fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami.

    Twenty-one people were killed in poll-related violence yesterday.

    minority leaders demand more protection for their communities..

    Human rights groups and Hindu leaders in Bangladesh today demanded more security for religious minorities amid reports that members of the community were attacked in several parts of the country during elections.

    Activists of main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its key-ally fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami attacked Hindu households in western Jessore and northwestern Dinajpur, local media reports said.

    The Daily Star and several other newspapers said the activists vandalised 130 Hindu houses and torched another 10 in Malopara village as they went to cast votes defying the opposition call for the boycott.

    Police, however, said 70 to 80 men attacked the village but joint forces comprising police and paramilitary Border Guard Bangladesh chased them away.

    The activists threatened the Hindus of dire consequence for voting, sparking panic and prompting the army “striking forces” intervention.

    “We were on election duty. In spite of that we rushed here to protect the villagers,” Maj Rahman last night said, adding that a temporary police camp was installed at the area.

    “Some 400 Hindus were forced to flee their homes and take refuge on the other side of the local Bhairab river fearing fresh attacks,” Bangladesh Hindu-Bouddho-Cristian Oikya Parishad vice president Kajal Debnath told PTI.

    Other reports said Hindus came under attack also at Pornia area in northwestern Dinajpur overnight where the opposition activists severely assaulted 10 elderly people of the community and vandalised over 10 houses for defying their calls for election boycott.

    But the army intervened, forcing the activists to flee.

    “We demand intensified protection…we don’t want to be traded off politically or used for anybody’s political purpose,” Debnath told PTI in an apparent reference to a perception that the Hindus were traditionally supporters of Awami League, which pursue a policy of secularism.

    He added: “Keep me (Hindus) beyond (political) focus, I don’t want to be a victim.”

    According to media reports, only a small number of Hindus cast their votes in north-western Lalmonirhat and southwestern Satkhira either fearing attacks by opposition activists.

    They said most of the Hindu villagers were annoyed with the government for not taking adequate steps for their protection during earlier such attacks in recent months when the opposition spearheaded anti-government campaigns.

    Terror on Hindus
    BNP-Jamaat men vandalise 130 houses, burn another 10 in Abhaynagar
    Star Report

    A couple of hours after yesterday’s voting ended, BNP-Jamaat men unleashed terror on a Hindu village in Abhaynagar upazila of Jessore.
    They vandalised 130 houses of the minority community and torched 10 more in Malopara village because the villagers had cast their votes.
    About 600 Hindus of the village swam across the Bhairab River and took shelter in Diyapara village under Sridhar union to save their lives.
    Villagers and police said wielding sharp weapons and sticks some 250 Jamaat-Shibir and BNP men led by Ariful Aksu and Kashem Ali had attacked the village around 6:00pm. During the 30-minute havoc, the attackers also looted valuables from the Hindu houses.
    Officer-in-Charge Emdad Hossain of Abhaynagar Police Station said the attack was made after 70 to 80 men had beat up two Hindu men, Biswanath and Shyamol, for casting vote.
    To save the two and disperse the attackers, members of the joint force fired six blank shots. While leaving the scene Jamaat-Shibir men threatened the Hindus of dire consequence for casting votes defying their directives.
    About an hour after the attack had been launched on Malopara, a contingent of the joint force led by Maj Anisur Rahman of Border Guard Bangladesh reached the scene.
    “We were on election duty. In spite of that we rushed here to protect the villagers,” Maj Rahman told The Daily Star last night.
    According to Maj Anis of the joint force, several houses were ransacked and only one house was torched in the attack.
    “Most of the villagers returned home,” he said, adding that a temporary police camp had been set up in Malopara on villagers’ request.
    The villagers last night filed a case naming 100 Jamaat-Shibir and BNP men in connection with the attack.
    The joint force has launched drives in the area to arrest the culprits.
    Meanwhile, a handful of Hindus cast their votes in Lalmonirhat and Satkhira yesterday as the majority of the community there either feared attacks by Jamaat-Shibir or were unhappy with the ruling party for not protecting them.
    The two constituencies of Lalmonirhat, where the voting took place, spread over the sadar, Hatibandha and Patgram upazilas. Minorities in these areas have recently come under attack by activists of Jamaat-e Islami, a major component of the BNP-led opposition, and its student body Islami Chhatra Shibir.
    At Ghoshpara village in Patgram, only 10-12 out of 280 voters exercised their franchise in the 10th national polls.
    “The remaining voters did not turn up as they were under threat from Jamaat-Shibir men of the village,” said Rajani Kanto Ghosh, a voter aged 48.
    He added he had stayed at home all day in fear of attacks.
    Besides, Rajani said, he had no interest in the election because the ruling Awami League had not extended its support to the Hindus even after the November 28 and December 15 attacks.
    Alleged Jamaat-Shibir activists beat up women and children and looted and torched shops and houses in Ghoshpara village on November 28 during an opposition-enforced countrywide blockade. At least 55 Hindu families fled the area on December 15 following threats and attacks.
    Sindurmoti village in Lalmonirhat has 4,000 voters, 90 percent of whom are Hindus. But not a single vote was cast at Sindurmoti Government Primary School polling centre, reported our correspondent.
    At Bawra village of Patgram upazila, some 25 Hindus cast their votes whereas the total number of minority voters is 300.
    Local community leader Niharanjan Das, 56, told The Daily Star that they had not gone out to vote fearing attacks by opposition men, especially those of Jamaat-Shibir.
    Gopal Chandra Barman, general secretary of Lalmonirhat Puja Udjapan Parishad, claimed that only 4 to 5 percent of the Hindu voters had exercised their franchise.
    Similar cases were reported from Satkhira.
    Not a single voter was seen at 4:00pm at Godaghata Government Primary School in Satkhira’s Shibpur union, reported our correspondent.
    The presiding officer of the polling station said opposition men had blasted cocktails there at dawn. The centre had been partially burnt the day before.
    A farmer passing by, Aftab Hossain said,”They [Jamaat-Shibir] threatened us with dire consequences if we vote. Why get into all the hassle?”
    Presiding officer Azizur Rahman of Agordari Kamil Madrassa in Godaghata said not a single vote had been cast though he had a list of 1,876 voters.
    “How will voters of these areas cast their votes? The Hindus fled because they had been targeted by Jamaat-Shibir men. And those who belong to Jamaat-Shibir are on the run from the joint forces,” said Lavlu Rahman of the area.
    Meanwhile, two houses of Hindu families in Bagha upazila of Rajshahi were burnt down Saturday night.
    An attack on a larger scale was made in Dinajpur on the minority community around 6:00pm yesterday, in which 30 shops, 65 houses, and paddies were torched.

    Hindu Minorities attacked in 4 districts in Bangladesh

    Minorities attacked in 4 districts

    Ittefaq Report

    Jamaat-Shibir cadres launched despicable attacks on Hindu communities in four districts the day after the 10th parliamentary elections. Hundreds of houses of the minority community were torched and looted since Sunday night in Dinjapur, Jessore, Satkhira and Thakurgaon. A large number of Hindus took shelter in the temples, while others have fled to other villages. They are too scared to return even after assurances from local administration.

    Dinajpur: Jamaat-Shibir cadres torched at least 150 houses in Hindu communities in Kornai village since Sunday night. At least 350 houses and 50 shops of five villages including Pritampara, Sahapara, Profullahpara, Telipara, Madhabpara and Ajaypara. Residents of at least eight unions in different upazilas of the district are the worst sufferers of the violence. 20-25 Hindu families from affected remote villages had left their homes and taken refuge in nearby towns. To handle the situation, law enforcement agencies have launched a joint drive in the district from Monday to restore law and order. However, this has not proved to be enough to remove the security concern among the minority people.

    Jessore: Miscreants vandalised at least 46 Hindu houses and establishments and torched 6 more on Sunday night. They accused the victims of voting for Awami League. About 200 residents of Malopara took shelter at Deyapara village across the river Bhairab following the attack. Jessore Police Super Jaydev Kumar Bhadra inspected the villages. In instant response, Avaynagar administration distributed 200 blankets among the victims. There have been allegations that police, ruling Awami league leaders and the administration didn’t promptly respond to their calls of help. Police arrived much later after the carnage was complete.

    Thakurgaon: Led by Jamaat, opposition men yesterday unleashed fierce post-election violence upon the religious minorities in Thakurgaon. The marauding Jamaat-Shibir and BNP activists clashed with law enforcers and ruling party men, attacked election officials and went on a rampage. They damaged and looted 65 houses and 30 shops and set afire paddies stored at courtyards in several homes. Locals in two villages in Thakurgaon Sadar upazila alleged that Jamaat-BNP men, brandishing lethal weapons, roamed through their areas and threatened to kill them for casting votes.

    Satkhira: After a clash between Awami League and BNP supporters, Jamaat-BNP men with sharp weapons, sticks and iron rods attacked the Hindus and others Awami League supporters. Several hundred Hindus and ruling Awami League leaders of Satkhira have been fleeing their homes over the last few days in the wake of massive violence unleashed by Jamaat-Shibir men in the district. Satkhira Superintendent of Police Chowdhury Manjurul Kabir said the situation would improve as the election hype dies down.

    খাবারের জন্য কাঁদছে শিশু বিপাশা বর্মণ। কাঁদছেন মা সঞ্চিতা বর্মণও। কারণ, ঘরে খাবার নেই। খাবার আসবে কোথা থেকে? ঘরই তো নেই! ঘরদোর, সহায়-সম্বল গেছে এমন ১২২টি সংখ্যালঘু পরিবারের। গত রোববার নির্বাচনের পর রাতে যশোরের অভয়নগর উপজেলার চাঁপাতলা গ্রামের মালোপাড়ায় বাড়িতে হামলা, ভাঙচুর ও লুটপাট চালানো হয়। পুড়িয়ে দেওয়া হয় ১০টি বাড়ি। জামায়াত-শিবির এ নারকীয় হামলা চালিয়েছে বলে জানান স্থানীয় লোকজন । ছবি: এহসান-উদ-দৌলানৌকা থেকে নেমে পোঁটলা-পুঁটলি মাথায় ও কাঁধে নিয়ে বাড়ির দিকে হাঁটছে শতাধিক নারী-পুরুষ-শিশু। চোখে-মুখে আতঙ্ক। ভৈরব নদের তীরে দাঁড়ানো শত শত লোক তাদের স্বাগত জানাচ্ছেন। এ যেন শরণার্থী শিবির থেকে ঘরে ফেরা।
    বাড়িতে ফিরেই নিজের সাজানো ঘরের বীভৎস চেহারা দেখে কান্নায় ভেঙে পড়লেন চন্দনা বিশ্বাস (৩৭)। তাঁর তিন মেয়ে, এক ছেলে। হামলাকারীরা পুড়িয়ে দিয়েছে তাঁর ঘরের আসবাব, লেপ-তোশক, বিছানা। জীবনধারণের একমাত্র অবলম্বন মাছ ধরার জালগুলোও অক্ষত নেই। করেছে লুটপাটও। আতঙ্কে স্তব্ধ চন্দনার স্বামী সঞ্জয় বিশ্বাস (৪০)। অজানা ভবিষ্যতের কথা ভেবে শঙ্কিত তাঁদের মতো শত শত নারী-পুরুষ-শিশু।
    গত রোববার ভোট শেষ হওয়ার পর সন্ধ্যায় যশোরের অভয়নগর উপজেলার চাঁপাতলা গ্রামের মালোপাড়ায় তাণ্ডব চালায় দুর্বৃত্তরা। জ্বালিয়ে দেয় বসতবাড়ি। এরপর গ্রামের প্রায় সবাই ভৈরব নদের ওপারে দেয়াপাড়ায় আশ্রয় নেন। গতকাল তাঁরা নিজেদের বাড়িতে ফিরে আসেন।
    কাল ওই গ্রামের সর্বত্র ছিল কান্নার রোল। খাওয়ার মতো কিছু ছিল না ঘরে। কী খাবেন, রাতে আবার সেই নারকীয় হামলা হবে কি না, সেই আতঙ্ক আর অনিশ্চয়তায় বিধ্বস্ত ঘরের দিকে ফ্যাল ফ্যাল করে তাকিয়ে আছে মানুষগুলো।
    যশোর-৪ আসনের নবনির্বাচিত সাংসদ রণজিত রায়, জেলা প্রশাসক মোস্তাফিজুর রহমান ও পুলিশ সুপার জয়দেব ভদ্রসহ স্থানীয় জনপ্রতিনিধি এবং আওয়ামী লীগের নেতারা ঘটনাস্থল পরিদর্শন করেছেন। জেলা প্রশাসনের পক্ষ থেকে তাৎক্ষণিকভাবে ২০০ কম্বল, দুই টন চাল ও নগদ এক লাখ টাকা দেওয়া হয়েছে।
    ভুক্তভোগীদের অভিযোগ, ঘটনার এক ঘণ্টা আগে বিষয়টি আঁচ করতে পেরে আওয়ামী লীগের নেতা ও স্থানীয় পুলিশ প্রশাসনকে জানানো হলেও কেউ তাদের রক্ষায় এগিয়ে আসেনি।
    ক্ষোভ ঝরে পড়ে বাসন্তী সরকারের (৪৫) কণ্ঠে, ‘আক্রান্ত হওয়ার পর সাহায্যের জন্য বারবার মোবাইলে আওয়ামী লীগ নেতাদের অনুরোধ করা হয়। কিন্তু তাঁরা এগিয়ে আসেননি। এখন এসে সবাই দরদ দেখাচ্ছেন।’
    চাঁপাতলা গ্রামের এক প্রান্তে অবস্থিত নিম্নবর্গীয় হিন্দুদের ১১২টি পরিবার পুরুষ পরম্পরায় বসবাস করে আসছে। পেশায় মূলত মৎস্যজীবী এ পরিবারগুলোর সবাই হামলার শিকার হয়েছে। পুড়িয়ে দেওয়া হয়েছে ওই পাড়ার ১০টি বাড়ি। ১০২টি পরিবারের মাত্র দুটি ঘর ছাড়া সব ঘরেই ভাঙচুর ও লুটপাট চালানো হয়েছে। প্রায় দুই ঘণ্টা ধরে চালানো তাণ্ডবে কমপক্ষে ২০ জন আহত হয়েছে। গুরুতর আহত চারজন হাসপাতালে চিকিৎসাধীন।
    এলাকাবাসী ও স্থানীয় প্রশাসন বলছে, জামায়াত-শিবির এ তাণ্ডব চালিয়েছে। জামায়াত-শিবিরের স্থানীয় নেতাদের সঙ্গে কথা বলার চেষ্টা করা হলেও তাঁদের পাওয়া যায়নি।
    এলাকাবাসী বলেন, জামায়াত-শিবিরের তাণ্ডবে আতঙ্কিত হয়ে সাঁতরে নদ পাড়ি দিতে হয়েছিল তাঁদের অনেককেই। নদ পাড়ি দিয়ে দেয়াপাড়া গ্রামের পালপাড়া এলাকার পূজামণ্ডপে আশ্রয় নেন কালীদাসী সরকার। তিনি বলেন, ‘১৫ বছরের ছেলের হাত ধরে সাঁতরে নদী পাড়ি দিয়েছি। একে তো শীতকাল। তারপর সন্ধ্যা। মনে হচ্ছিল নদীর হিম পানিতে বুঝি ডুবে মারা যাব।’
    নদ পাড়ি দিতে গিয়ে পরনের শাড়িটিও হারিয়েছেন মায়া রানী মণ্ডল। পরে দেয়াপাড়ার একজনের শাড়ি পরে বাড়ি ফিরেছেন। ২০ বছর আগে স্বামীকে হারিয়েছেন মায়া। তিনটি অনাথ মেয়েকে বড় করে বিয়ে দিয়েছেন। এখন একা থাকেন ছোট্ট একটি ঘরে। গতকাল বাড়ি ফিরে দেখেন তাঁর ঘরটি আর বসবাসের উপযোগী নেই।
    মালোপাড়ার আতঙ্কিত মানুষকে সাহায্য করার জন্য দেয়াপাড়ার পালপাড়া থেকে নৌকা নিয়ে এগিয়ে এসেছিল কেউ কেউ। দেয়াপাড়ার সেই সব মানুষের একজন রবীন্দ্রনাথ ব্যানার্জি বলেন, ‘আমরা আসতে না পারলে নদে ডুবে মারা যেত ছোট বাচ্চারা। বাচ্চারা বাড়ি ফেরার কথা শুনে ভয়ে আতঙ্কে শিউরে উঠছে।’
    তাণ্ডবের সময় গ্রাম ছেড়ে যায়নি নির্মল বর্মণের পরিবার। তাঁর পুত্রবধূ সঞ্চিতা বলেন, ‘আমিই শ্বশুর মশাইকে বলেছিলাম, বাবা আমরা কোথাও যাব না। মরলে সবাই একসঙ্গে মরব। কানবার যেন কেউ না থাকে।’
    খোঁজ নিয়ে জানা গেছে, চাঁপাতলার পাশের চেঙ্গুটিয়া ও বালিয়াডাঙ্গা গ্রাম দুটিতে জামায়াত-শিবিরের শক্তিশালী ঘাঁটি। অভয়নগর উপজেলা জামায়াতে ইসলামীর আমির আবদুল আজিজের গ্রামের বাড়ি বালিয়াডাঙ্গায়। এ দুটি গ্রামের জামায়াত-শিবিরের কর্মীরা গত ২৮ ফেব্রুয়ারি দেলাওয়ার হোসাইন সাঈদীর ফাঁসির রায় ঘোষিত হওয়ার পর থেকে যশোর-খুলনা মহাসড়কের একটি বড় এলাকাজুড়ে নাশকতা চালিয়ে যাচ্ছেন।
    ভোটের দুই দিন আগে শুক্রবার পানের বরজে আগুন দেওয়া হয় বলে জানান মালোপাড়ার বাসিন্দা সুনীল কুমার সরকার। বিষয়টি পুলিশকে জানানো হলে তারা একবার গ্রামে এসে দেখে গিয়েছিল। আতঙ্কিত গ্রামবাসী পুলিশ ক্যাম্প স্থাপনের দাবি জানিয়েছেন।
    পুলিশ সুপার জয়দেব ভদ্র বলেন, মালোপাড়ায় একটি অস্থায়ী পুলিশ ক্যাম্প করা হয়েছে। যতক্ষণ পর্যন্ত ওই পাড়ার বাসিন্দারা নিরাপদ বোধ করবেন না, ততক্ষণ ক্যাম্পটি থাকবে।
    অভয়নগর থানার ভারপ্রাপ্ত কর্মকর্তা (ওসি) এমদাদুল হক বলেন, নির্বাচনী ব্যস্ততার জন্য মালোপাড়ার নিরাপত্তা নিশ্চিত করার বিষয়টি গুরুত্বের সঙ্গে নেওয়া যায়নি। নির্বাচনের পর এমন হামলা হবে, তা ধারণার মধ্যে ছিল না। তিনি বলেন, প্রাথমিক তদন্তে এ ঘটনার জন্য জামায়াত-শিবির দায়ী, এটা নিশ্চিত হওয়া গেছে। এরই মধ্যে অভিযুক্ত তিনজনকে গ্রেপ্তার করা হয়েছে। পুলিশ ৩০ জনের নাম পেয়েছে।

    Hindus under threat
    Hundreds leave home in panic as Jamaat-BNP-led post-polls terror strikes them in several districts

    It has been a long period of 43 years. Yet Hindus in Bangladesh remain vulnerable to attacks by anti-liberation forces.
    Hundreds of Hindu families who fled their homes following post-poll violence in different districts on Sunday are scared to return as the administration could not ensure their security.
    As soon as the voting ended on Sunday afternoon, BNP and Jamaat-Shibir men looted, vandalised and burned Hindu houses in Thakurgaon, Dinajpur, Rangpur, Bogra, Lalmonirhat, Rajshahi, Chittagong and Jessore.
    The raids remind many of the atrocities by the Pakistani occupation forces and their collaborators in 1971.
    “We left our house in 1971 as the Pakistan army and razakars set fire to our village. And we are passing through the same ordeal in 2014,” lamented Bishwajit Sarkar of Malopara village in Abhaynagar, Jessore.

    His small shop was looted and fishing nets at his house were burned down.
    Bishwajit’s neighbour Mayarani is an elderly woman who works as a domestic help in nearby houses. Jamaat-Shibir activists looted all her belongings, even the small quantity of rice she had stored in her hut.
    While talking to our Jessore correspondent, she said she now had only one item of clothing left, and that was the saree she was wearing.
    Her house was destroyed as well.
    According to villagers, Jamaat-Shibir activists of Prembag, Chanpadanga, Bahirghat, Beledanga and some adjacent areas threatened the voters of Malopara not to go to the polling stations.
    But the villagers went to the polling centre at Chanpatola Alia Madrasa one by one to cast their vote.
    Enraged, Jamaat-Shibir activists numbering about four to five hundred wreaked a two-hour mayhem from the evening. They exploded about 250 bombs, vandalised one hundred houses and torched 10 to 12 others.
    There were 1,200 to 1,500 people in the village, inhabited mostly by fishermen. About 700 of them left immediately after the attack. They took shelter near Deyapara village after crossing the river Bhairab, swimming or by boat or trawler. And a number of people hid in different orchards.

    Locals said they had called police, ruling Awami league leaders and the administration over the mobile phones but nobody came to help. Police were seen after 9:00pm, when it was all over.
    Our Thakurgaon correspondent, during a visit yesterday afternoon found about twelve hundred people from five hundred Hindu families of Gopalpur village sheltered at a temple of Iscon (International Society for Krishna Consciousness).
    Following a clash between Awami League and BNP supporters that left one dead and a few hundred injured, Jamaat-BNP men with sharp weapons, sticks and iron rods attacked Hindus and other Awami League supporters.
    Our Dinajpur correspondent reports, at least 350 houses and 50 shops of five villages, including Pritampara, Sahapara, Profullahpara, Telipara, Madhabpara and Ajaypara of Kornai village under were damaged, set ablaze and looted.
    According to locals, around 2,000 Jamaat-Shibir men armed with sharp weapons and sticks launched the attack at Kornai village around 5:30pm Sunday.
    “My house was set on fire. All my valuables were burnt to ashes,” said Fonibala Roy, wife of Santosh Chandra Roy. She showed our correspondent the gutted books of her daughter, an SSC examinee this year.
    Several hundred Hindu men, women and children fled after the attack.
    Iqbalur Rahim, lawmaker-elect of Dinajpur-3, visited some of the affected areas yesterday and asked people not to leave as the government would secure their safety.
    In Chittagong too, Hindus are under threat following attacks on Sunday night in Satkania, Loahagara and Banshkhali upazilas, considered Jamaat-Shibir strongholds.
    In Loahagara, Jamaat-Shibir rowdies vandalised and looted several shops owned by Hindus at Hindur Haat in Kolujan, said locals and police.
    They also tried to vandalise a nearby temple, but locals resisted them, reports our Chittagong office.
    Besides, the Jamaat-BNP men also attacked Hindus in Kaunia upazila of Rangpur and Nandigram upazila in Bogra, report our correspondents.
