Bengal - A Kashmir in The Making
Erstwhile Bengal and current West Bengal is a good case study for the rest of India and the world. Even though we all know about Bengal's great Hindu holocaust, we hardly talk about it. The persecuted Hindus hardly talk about it. It is surprising yet true that the land of Netaji and innumerable Bengal Hindu bravehearts is now reeling under some unknown fear, a fear that we have nurtured since our independence and until 2014. It is time to remind Bengali Hindus of their rightful position in their state and to rise to the occasion and snatch their position.
But it is easier said than done. The revolutionary power of Hindus is suppressed for so long and the way Hindus were butchered in the history without even proper justice demanded by the Hindu leaders themselves, it is unlikely that Bengali Hindus will awaken anytime soon. The 37 years of communist rule and now Muslim appeasing TMC ruler of West Bengal continuing to subvert Hindus in various ways. In one hand they are suppressing Hindu rights and creating unnecessary blockade on Hindu festivals (like bursting crackers during Diwali, early morning sankeertan in temples etc) and on the other hand they are promoting early morning Azaan in the name of secularism. Hindus are also not talking about this openly.
But do we expect Hindus to talk about such apparently smaller problems, when they don't even talk about how Muslims openly killed their family members, looted their homes and raped their women? Probably no.
The horrific details of Marichjhnapi massacre under the communist regime of Bengal and subsequent denials by West Bengal communists of any kind of persecution of Hindus in Bengal should have made things clear to Bengali Hindus. But even it did not. So, we see that even today Hindu communist leaders openly proclaim that Hindu is a problem. It is also important to understand that these communist (or even TMC) leaders are all Hindus. So, Hindus in Bengal are clearly a confused lot as they do not understand whom to believe. If only these Hindus could be truthful to themselves and to their family, they would have spoken the truth openly without fearing persecution. But the reason they continue to fear persecution even after 75 years of independence, is that they are never united. Hindus in the initial 70 years of independence are taught to hate themselves and their culture. So, their existence is at stake today.
Understanding one important point is very important here. As revealed in the secret KGB files revealed in the book Mitrokhin Archives we know that Indian communists were paid by the communist party in Soviet Union for a long time to continue subversion of Hindus. So, their leaders even those who were uprooted from Bangaladesh after independence due to this ethnic cleansing, continued speaking against Hindus and ignoring the Hindu holocaust.
The book clearly tells us how Hindus were persecuted in the past and the current circumstances tell us how they continue to be persecuted even today. The book is a very good step towards telling the world about an important part of Hindu history that is hitherto not spoken but needs to be discussed in all forums without any hindrance. This is the reason the book is a must read for all Hindus.
