Abhijit Pandey | HENB | Kolkata | Apr 5, 2017:: The ‘Jai Shri Ram’ pressure of Sangh Parivar in Bengal politics ultimately made the ruling TMC as ‘Ram and Hanuman bhakt’ all on a sudden on the day of Ram Navami this year.
The eccentric Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, who told ‘Ram as not her god and Ram Puja not connected with Bengal culture’ in a TV show some days ago, has finally taken an u-turn to be a Ram devotee and directed her party men to celebrated Ram Navami to counter the big-bang programmes taken by RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal, Hindu Jagran Manch and Sri Ram Navami Janmotsava Samity through out the state.
As a result TMC took the streets in Asansole, Siliguri, Howrah, Kanchrapara, Nalhati to celebrate Ram Navami and more interestingly TMC celebrated special Hanuman Jayanti in 127 Hanuman temples in the district of Birbhum.
On Wednesday, various Hindu Right wing groups affiliated to the Rashtriya Swyamsevak Sangh (RSS) organised grand rallies on the occasion of Ram Navami in West Bengal. In all the places BJP leaders and supporters participated in the rally of Hindutvawadi Ram Navami in large scale.
Holding aloft huge saffron flags and whizzing through the city and districts on motorbikes, members of Hindutva outfits kicked-off a series of “armed” rallies during the day.
Even school children and women were seen brandishing swords and bows and arrows in the colourful rallies. They rent the air with slogans of “Jai Shri Ram”. In the rallies, chants of “Har Har Mahadev”, “Go Mata ki Jai”, “Hindu Dharma ki Jai”, “Hindu Rashtra ki Jai” were also heard. The participants in the rallies were demanding, “Construction of Grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya”, “Ban on Cow Slaughter” and “Common Civil Code” in India.
In Kolkata, the big Shobhayatras (rallies) were taken out in places like Bhowanipore, Garia-Jadavpur, Tallyganj, Satyanarayan Park, Gardenreach where huge Sri Ram idols were seen. In Alambazar, Kestopur, New Town, Baguihati, huge Hanuman idols were the attraction of Sri Ram Navami Shobhayatra.
The Sangha Parivar’s Sri Ram Navami Shobhyatra safronized the Bengal soil from Darjeeling to Ganga Sagar. Reports of Sri Ram Navami big celebrations have came from Dinajpur, Birbhum, Medinipur, 24 Parganas, Hoogly, Burdwan, Nadia, Malda, Purulia and Bankura.
The saffron Brigade took out Ram Navami rally with big Bajrangbali image at Kaliaganj, Hemtabad, Balurghat and Hemtabad in North Bengal.
Public amazed with the big Ram Navami processions at Diamond Harbour, Amtala, Barasat, Burdwan, Barrackpur, Kharagpur and many other places in South Bengal.
Sri Upananda Brahmachari inagurates Diamond Harbour rally with mass chanting of “Sri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram” and WB BJP State President, Dilip Ghosh started the Kharagpur rally with “Shastra Pujan”.
In a Ram-filled atmosphere, TMC leader and Minister Lakshmi Ratan Shukla led Sri Ram navami Procession in Howrah; TMC Leader Subhranshu Roy led the Ram Navami Procession at Kanchrapara and State Minister and veteran TMC leader Sadhan Pandey inaugurated a Ram Lila Fair in Salt Lake. The firebrand TMC leader, Anubrata Mondal took the charge of Hanuman Puja in 127 temples in Birbhum district as reported. In Asansole the TMC organised seperate Ram Navami rallies to contest with the saffron brigade.
In Durgapur, the members of Durga Vahini (female brigade of VHP) participated in Ramnavami rally with open swords.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee greeted the people on the occasion. “Greetings on the occasion of Ram Navami,” Banerjee tweeted first time after being the CM of West Bengal. Magically, WB CM is not uttering “Inshallah” and “Khuda Hafez” in her public speeches and questioned why Sangha Parivar and BJP are using ‘Om’ symbol in Ram Navami flags.
In his reaction, Upananda Brahmachari, the editor of Hindu Existence told HENB, “Mamata may use ‘Allah ho Akbar’ in TMC flag if she wants to make TMC as Total Muslim Congress, but she must not interfere Hindus festival anyway. She is not a Dharma Guru and a fake practitioner of Hindu Dharma. She does ‘Chandi Path’ on one part and advocates beef eating on another. Mamata maintains her double standard for Muslim appeasement linked to vote bank politics. Hindus in Bengal are traditionally attached with the Culture of Lord Rama and Krishna, they are ready to hear Dharma Gurus, but not to hear a low standard politicians like Mamata who is main cause of Hindu plights in Bengal ranging Deganga-Canning-Usthi-Juranpur-Samudragarh-Kaliachak-Tehatta-Dhulagarh and so on”.
The remarks of WB state BJP President, Dilip Ghosh “Now this a fight of Ramjada and Harmajada (a fight between the descendants of Lord Rama and the betrayers)”, has sparked a new debate within the upsurge of Shri Ram movement in Bengal.
The political analysts in Bengal opine that WB BJP is trying to penetrate in Bengal Politics into the roots with Sri Ram sentiments. They are prioritizing Ram Mandir sentiment of Hindus in Bengal, the repercussion of Bengal Hindus against crude Muslim appeasement by states and obviously anti-Hindu attitude of the state reflected in various riot situations in Bengal.
