Maha Saptami in Kolkata witnesses brutal torture of Islamists on cows

Hindus burst into protest in Entally

Central Kolkata, Anandapalit (CIT Road) – Entally area, remained witness to a sudden flare up between Islamists and Hindus on the evening of Maha Saptami. Torture of Islamists on cows and Hindu defiance to resist it added fuel to the fire.  

All these happened when on earth a few Islamists were witnessed to torture two cows immoderately. As per locals, the culpable crooks entered the narrow road from adjoining CIT Road, known for remaining busy incessantly and under a strict surveillance of police, and were both pulling and compelling cows (unwilling to move a bit even – perhaps due to ill health or fatigue) to walk. When such attitudes of cows were ascertained, Islamists, being ideally insensate, started beating them mercilessly, especially the cow tied before a temple and a Durga Puja Pandal.

The extent of beating was such that the cow (one of its legs being harmed savagely) started bleeding profusely within a short time. The entire incident was not inhuman only but a deliberate and vicious act of profanity to Hinduism also – cows are regarded as most sacred animals under the sun, according to various tenets of Hinduism.

The incident proved to be enough to infuriate local Hindus; the entire gathering was found to wonder the audacity of Islamists to do the same before a temple and Durga Puja pandal. The angry Hindus, being law abiding citizens, started protesting against administration but didn’t a run amok, unlike Islamists.

To quell the fast worsening situation, a large contingent of police (of no less than 1000 with RAF), a strong force from P.S. Entally, rushed to the spot and the entire area turned into a catastrophe (to take place soon). Such was the intensity fuelled by Hindu wrath that Iqbal Ahmed (MLA – Khanakul and also influential leader of Trinamool Congress) with his henchmen appeared there soon and asked Jawed Shamim (Jt. Commissioner of Police, HQs., Kolkata) present there to snuggle down the matter in a short time.

What are most striking, efforts to snatch cameras from people (witnessing the incident) went on and the episode, as usual, has failed to find a place in mainstream media today.

And last but not least, one Hindu youth has been taken into custody! 

When the area was visited today itself, deep tension was found to prevail highly.

  1. गौरक्षा से विश्व की सभी समस्यां कैसे मिटेगी?
    विश्व के सामने सबसे बड़ी समस्या है ‘आतंकवाद’. आतंकवाद का मूल कारण है मांसाहार. मांसाहार का मूल कारण है अज्ञान कि इससे ताकत आती है. जबकि मांसाहार से रोग आते हैं. दुःख, दुर्गन्ध, दुर्घटना कि सम्भावना बढती है. कोई भी मनुष्य दुःख, दुर्गन्ध, बिमारी आदि नहीं चाहता. आवश्यकता है शाकाहार के लाभ व् मांसाहार की हानिया के प्रचार की. अगर हम सभी मनवों को शाकाहारी बनने की वैज्ञानिक प्रेरणा दे दें तो निरपराध, निर्दोष, मूक, उपयोगी पशुओं की व् पर्यावरण की रक्षा हो जायेगी और साथ ही आतंकवाद की जड़ ही कट जायेगी.
    विश्व के सामने दूसरी सबसे बड़ी समस्या है प्रदूषण- जितना धरती, जल, वायु का प्रदूषण कत्लखानों से होता है उतना और किसी से नहीं होता. गौवंश के साथ-साथ सभी जीवों की रक्षा हो गयी अर्थात सभी कत्लखाने बंद हो जाएँ तो प्रदूषण की समस्या बहुत हद तक कम हो जायेगी.
    विश्व के सामने तीसरी बड़ी समस्या है- मानव एवं धरती की बिमारी - भुखमरी - गरीबी की. धरती का जब रासायनिक खाद से अत्यधिक शोषण होता है तो धरती भी बीमार पड़ जाती है. भूखी एवं गरीब (बंजर) हो जाती है. गोधन बचाने से धरती को उसका असली आहार “गोबर” मिलेगा तो वह पुनः हरी-भरी, उर्वरा, व् शक्तिशाली हो जायेगी. उसकी उत्पादन क्षमता के साथ साथ उत्पादों की गुणवत्ता भी बढेगी जिससे मानव मात्र स्वस्थ, सुपोषित एवं समृद्ध बनेगा. अतः मानव व् धरती दोनों की तीनो समस्याएं एक साथ सुलझ जायेगी.
    विश्व के सामने अगली बड़ी समस्या है प्राकृतिक आपदाएं, अपराध, अत्याचार, हिंसा, तनाव, क्रोध, झगडा-वैमनस्य आदि आदि. प्रसिद्द वैज्ञानिक प्रो. डॉ. मदन मोहन बजाज के अनुसार जीव हत्या जनित पीड़ा तरंगों के कारण ही व्यक्ति + देश के जीवन में संकट, दुःख, दुर्घटना एवं प्राकृतिक प्रकोप आते हैं, उनके अनुसार जीव हत्या बंद कर उपरोक्त समस्याओं से मानव मात्र को छुटकारा दिलाया जा सकता है.
    गोपालन से अनेक लोगों को रोजगार मिलते हैं जबकि गोहत्या से १०० लोगों से रोजगार छिनकर १ व्यक्ति को आधे दिन का रोजगार प्राप्त होता है. इतने बड़े घटे का सौदा भारत जैसा बहुसंख्यक देश कैसे कर सकता है? अतः देश के पशु धन की रक्षा होने से बेरोजगारी की समस्या मिटेगी. साथ ही मिटेगी अन्य सभी समस्यायें और देश में पुनः खुशहाली आना शुरू हो जायेगी.
    सभी पार्टिया “विकास” की बात करती है किन्तु जीव हत्या “विकास” है या “विनाश”? जब तक धरती पर गौ जैसे उपयोगी पशुधन की हत्या होती रहेगी - देश का सच्चा विकास होना असंभव है. अतः राष्ट्रीय अहिंसा मंच-
    १. जनता जनार्दन से निवेदन करता है कि वे उसी व्यक्ति/पार्टी को वोट दें जो गोरक्षा का, शाकाहार का, कत्लखाने + मांस का निर्यात बंद कराने का पक्षधर हो.
    २. सभी राजनैतिक दलों से कहना चाहते है कि वे स्पष्ट करे कि गौरक्षा, शाकाहार , कत्लखाने + मांस निर्यात के पक्ष में है या विपक्ष में?
    ३. सभी प्रकार के मीडिया वालों को सविनय, सप्रेम प्रार्थना करती है कि वे इस मुद्दे पर सभी पार्टियों के प्रमुख नेताओं + अधिकांश उम्मीदवारों एवं जनता से प्रश्न पूछें की वे अहिंसा : हिंसा; जीव हत्या : जीव रक्षा; गोहत्या : गोरक्षा किसके पक्ष धर हैं?

  2. Cow slaughter is NOT a original Muslim religious practice. In fact, the Arabian Peninsula hardly has any cows. So, slaughtering cows is NOT a religious obligation in Islam. The only reason Muslims slaughter cows in the Indian subcontinent, is because it creates psychological domination over the Hindus. Islam is a hunter-grabber ideology and cow-slaughter has a important social message. It essentially tells a Hindu villager that he is powerless to protect anyone, whether the cow or his mother or sister.

    So, in its landmark judgement (dated 2 Nov 2011 and 13 Oct 2011), the Honorable Calcutta High Court banned cow slaughter during Eid.

    The High Court’s division bench of Chief Justice JN Patel and Justice Asim Ray termed the practice of killing cows and their progeny for religious purposes as unlawful. This judgment came after Mr. Enamul Haque, Mr.Abhijit Das and others had filed a Public Interest Litigation, (vide Case No. AST-725 of 2010) in the High Court on 11 October 2010 - with Advocates M.M.Qureshi and Joydip Roy representing the petitioners.

    The High Court ordered the authorities to implement the provisions of West Bengal Animal Slaughter (Control) Act, 1950 and if any instance of cow slaughter on Bakri-Eid is brought to their notice, they should take cognizance and act in accordance with the law.

    The Calcutta High Court categorically stated that “the officials of the State and local bodies have no power to facilitate holding of markets for trading of cattle for sacrifice and also the movement of cattle for the said purpose on the occasion of Id-uz-Zoha”.

    The Supreme Court of India reiterated that “sacrifice of a cow on Bakr id Day is NOT an obligatory overt act for a Musalman to exhibit his religious belief and ideas”. In many occasions the apex court directed that “such slaughter cannot be a religious purpose because it is NOT a part of religious requirement for the Musalmans..”

    Unfortunately, the Officers-in-Charge of Usthi Police Station, Joynagar Police Station and Falta Police Station (all in South 24 Parganas district) are behaving like a law unto themselves. They are intimidating and forcing poor Scheduled Caste villagers to support and make arrangements for slaughtering of cows on the Bakr-Eid day which falls on October 27, 2012 – during Durga Puja festival). They have vividly threatened renowned social workers who are only helping the villagers to submit a memorandum (requesting the implementation of the verdict of the High Court and Supreme Court) with mass signatures to the government authorities in a completely peaceful, democratic and legal manner.

    Special mention must be made of the biased and communal mindset of Mrs. Papiya Sultana, Deputy Superintendent of Police, (Falta Zone) who has been aggressively arm-twisting the villagers of Pianjganj to meekly accept cow slaughter or face dire consequences. Playing fiddle to her communal agenda is her subordinate officer Mr. Sudip Singh (Officer-in-Charge, Usthi Police Station). They are determined and adamant to allow and help slaughtering cows in Pianjganj village for the first time.

    To preempt any action by the poor villagers (who seek the implementation of the Supreme Court and High Court judgements), the administration is taking all legal and illegal steps to threaten and scare the Pianjganj villagers who are Scheduled Castes and therefore backward and illiterate.

    These errant officers are repeatedly calling these hapless villagers to Usthi police station,

  3. BY DESTROYING NATURE
    By destroying nature, environment, man is committing matricide, having in a way killed Mother Earth. Technological excellence, growth of industries, economical gains have led to depletion of natural resources irreversibly. Indifference of the grave consequences, lack of concern and foresight have contributed in large measures to the alarming position. In the case at hand, the alleged victim is the flora and fauna . The forests in the area are among 18 immediately recognized “Hotspots” for bio-diversity conservation in the world.
    ‘Environment’ is a difficult word to define. Its normal meaning relates to the surroundings, but obviously that it is a concept which is relatable to whatever object it is which is surrounded. Einstein had once observed, “The environment is everything that is n’t me”. About one and half century ago, in 1854, as the famous story goes the wise Indian Chief of Seattle replied to the offer of the great. White Chief in Washington to by their land. The reply is profound. It is beautiful. It is timeless. It contains the wisdom of the ages. It is first over and the most understanding statement on environment. The whole of it is worth quoting as any extract from it is to destroy its beauty.

  4. “How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us.
    If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?
    Every part of the earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every cleaning and humming insect is holy in the memory and experience of my people. We are part of the earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. The rocky creats, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and man-all belong to the same family.
    We will reserve us a place so that we can live comfortably to ourselves. He will be our father and we will be his children. So we will consider your offer to buy our land. But it will not be easy. For this land is sacred to us.
    This shining water moves is the stream and rivers is not just water but the blood of our ancestors. If we sell you land, you must remember that it is sacred, and you must teach your children that is sacred and that each ghostly reflection in the clear water of the lakes tells of event and memories in the life of people. The water’s murmur is the voice of my father’s father.

  5. The rivers are our brothers, they quench our thirst. The river carry our canoes, and feed our must remember, and teach your children, that the river are our brothers, and yours and you must hence forth give the kindness your would give any brother.
    We know that the white man does understand our ways. Our portion of land is the same to him as the next, for he is a strange who comes in the night and takes from the land whatever he needs. The earth is not his brother but his enemy and when he has conquered it, he moves on. He leaves his father’s graves behind, and he does not care.
    He kidnaps the earth from his children. His father’s grave and his children’s birth right are forgotten. He treats his mother, the earth, and forgotten. He treats his mother, the earth, and his brother, the sky, as things to be bought, plundered, sold like sheep or bright beads. His appetite will devour the earth and leave behind only a desert.
    I do not know. Our ways are different from your ways. The sight of your cities pains the eyes of red man. But perhaps it is because the red man is a savage and does not understand.
    There is on quiet place in the white man’s cities. No place to hear the unfurling of leaves in spring or the rustle of in insect’s wings. But perhaps it is because I am a savage and do not understand. The clatter only seems to insult the ears. And what is there in life if a man cannot hear the lonely cry of the whippoorwill or the arguments of the frogs around a pond at night? I am a red man and do not understand. The prefers the soft sound of the wind darting over the face of a pond, and the smell of the wind itself, cleansed by a mid-day rain, or scented with the pinon pine.
    The air is precious for all things share the same breath-the beast, the tree, the man, they all share the same breath. The white man does not seem to notice the air he breathes. Like a man lying for many days, he is numb to the stench. But if we sell you our land, you must remember that the air is precious to us, that the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports. The wind that gave our grandfather his first breath also receives the last sign. And if we sell you land, you must keep it apart and sacred as a place where even the white man can go to taste the wind that is sweetened by the meadow’s flowers.
    So we will consider your offer to buy our land. If we decide to accept. I will make one condition. We must treat the beasts of this land as his brothers.

  6. I am a savage and I do not understand any other way. I have seen thousand rotting buffaloes on the prairie, left by the white man who shot them from a passing train. I am a savage and I do not understand how the smoking iron horse can be important than the buffalo that we kill only to stay alive.
    What a man without beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts soon happens to man. All things are connected.
    You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes do our grandfathers, so that they will respect the land. Tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the son of the earth. If man spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves.
    This we know: The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. This we know: All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected.
    Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not wave the web of life; he is merely a stand in it. Whatever he does to the web he does to himself.
    Even the white man, whose God walks and talks with him as friend to friend cannot be exempt from the common destiny. We may be brother after all. We shall see. One thing we know, which the white man may one day discover-our God is the same God. You may think now that you own him as you wish to own our land; but you cannot. He is the God man, and his compassion is equal for the red man and the white. This earth is precious to him, and to harm the earth is to heap contempt on the creator. The white too shall pass perhaps sooner than all other tribes. Contaminate your bed and you will one night suffocate in your own waste.
    But in your perishing you will shine brightly, fried by the strength of the God who brought you this land and for some special purpose gave you dominion over this land and over the red man. That destiny is a mystery to us, for we do not understand when the wild buffaloes are slaughtered, the wild horse are tamed, the secret corners of the forest heavy with scent of many men and the view of the ripe hills blotted by talking wires. Where is the thicket? Gone, where is the eagle? Gone. The end of living and the beginning of survival.”
    It would be hard find out such dawn to earth description of nature. “Nature hates monopolies and knows no exception. It has always some levelling agency that puts the overbearing, the strong, the rich, the fortunate substantially on the same ground with all others” and Zarathustra. Environment is polycentric and multi-facet problem affecting the human existence. The Stokholm Declaration of United Nation on Human Environment, 1972, reads its Principle No. 3, inter alia, thus:
    “Man has the fundamental right to freedom, equality, and adequate condition of life. In an environment of equality that permits a life of dignity and well being and bears a solemn responsibility to protect and improve the environment for present and future generations.”

  7. Honourable MAMTA BANERJEE CHIEF MINISTER WARNING MESSAGE FROM YOGESH SAXENA ALL INDIA BAR ASSOCIATION BE AWARE THAT YOU ARE REPRESENTATIVES OF PEOPLE NOT A PUUPPET IN THE HANDS OF CRIMINALS

    The whole issue about "cow slaughter" has two negative social implications, aside from its blatantly provocative communal agenda that seeks to create religious tension in society :

    1. The economic impact of cow slaughter falls directly and only on Hindus below or around poverty line:
    Almost all of the cow-slaughter in West Bengal and Bangladesh is inflicted on stolen cows from West Bengal. These cows form the livelihood of poor rural Hindus and are often quite economically productive.

    2. Psychological impact on society:

  8. verbally threatening them, raiding their houses at night (10.30 pm), and ultimately serving them legal notice (slapping criminal case) totally without any reason or incident, only to scare them and make them to stay outside the village. There is no ground for these untoward and unwarranted steps on behalf of the local administration.

    Apart from trying to enforce illegal Cow Slaughter in newer places, the Usthi PS has arranged an illegal cow trading point just adjacent to Police Station itself (Northern side of PS, in between PS and Usthi Agricultural Nursery). In Joynagar PS area, big cow markets are presently seen in Mouzpur and Biswanathpur villages. In Sahararhat (Falta PS), unlawful miscreants are canvassing this illegal Cow market there on microphones, with the tacit support of the police.

    We request you all to take this matter seriously and call and press the local administration to stop these illegal and unethical activities and stop the illegal cow slaughtering in the village of Pianjganj.

    These errant police officers’ actions are clear and blatant violations of the High Court’s and Supreme Court’s Relevant Judgements and exacerbate Animal Cruelty, Ghastly Slaughtering and Perilous Pollution in these days of ensuing Bakr Idd on 27th Oct, 2012, by violating Preventions of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act, 1960; Animal Transportation Act; WB Pollution Control Act; WB Animal Slaughter Control Act, 1950 and openly point to the Criminal-Official Nexus.

    These unlawful police officers are openly defying the unambiguous verdicts of Calcutta High Court and Supreme Court in this regard to stop Cow slaughtering in West Bengal on the occasion of Bakrid.

    Inspite of these police officers’ unlawful actions, thousands of brave villagers, from Pianjganj village (under Usthi P.S), signed and submitted a mass petition in this regard to various authorities like the Governor, State Human Rights Commission, District Magistrate, District Superintendent of Police, SDO- Diamond Harbour, SDPO- Diamond Harbour, O.C. Usthi, BDO- Usthi and other officials, urging the administration to obey the Supreme Court and Calcutta High Court verdicts and stop Cow Slaughter on the occasion of upcoming Bakr-Eid (October 27, 2012). This is why the local administration is taking all these illegal and unethical steps.

    The motivation for these police officers’ blatant contravention of the law is debatable. The root cause may be monetary or an old habit of pandering to extremist elements so much that these officers cannot tolerate any legal and democratic procedure. Though they are public servants, they have come to resemble thugs for the peace loving people of South 24 Parganas district. Most unfortunately, some of their superior officers are apparently turning a blind eye to such atrocities for the same reasons. Such unscrupulous elements bring notoriety to the khakhi uniform.

    This week, Firhad Hakim (Bobby), Minister for Urban Development in West Bengal, has been playing a nefarious role in violating the verdicts of Calcutta High Court and Supreme Court. Hakim has been instrumental in financially and officially supporting miscreants’ efforts to seize cows rescued from a cramped van (marked “Kurbanir Goru” / “Cows for Bakr Id slaughter”) from Salt Lake IT Sector and kept in the safe custody of Rajasthan Gau Kalyan Trust Goshala near Barasat

    We request the Honorable Government of West Bengal to investigate this issue thoroughly and take stringent action against such errant public servants, who break the very law they are supposed to enforce.

    We also urge the West Bengal Administration to stop the official repression of the state’s ancient and vibrant Durga Puja by revoking the ban on the Divine Mother’s immersion on October 26 and 27, 2012.

    We would like to respectfully remind the administration that banning the centuries’ old indigenous Bengali tradition of Durga Puja immersion (in order to appease a violent, alien, Arabic creed of Bakr Id) is tantamount to turning Bengal (or what is left of it) into another East Pakistan.
