#NoakhaliMassacre #WakeUpHindu #HinduGenocide
When History comes to Hindus, we are projected as #HinduTerrorist & we were forced to forget our blackest days of history. When the most ancient civilisation becomes terrorists in own land the dark evil power did its ugly trick on Indian people.
Hindu, Sikhs, Jains & Buddhists the original inhabitants of this holy land r made outcast & voiceless. Time to time we have witnessed genocide of Hindus in their own land by the foreign invaders. 1 such Hindu genocide was the Noakhali massacre, 1946.
#NoakhaliMassacre #WakeUpHindu #HinduGenocide
for Direct action day tweets chk this thread
the original & Largest massacres of Hindus.
It was inhabited by 18L muslims & only 4L Hindus in 1946.
AIML chief H. S. Suhrawardy was the Prime Minister of Undivided Bengal.
on id-ul-ftr a rumour spread that Hindus have hired Sikhs & they have accumulated arms & Hindus have killed all Muslims in Calcutta. Mischief was pre-planned. Systematic killing of Hindus began.
#NoakhaliMassacre #WakeUpHindu
They extorted money, called to surrender the weapons, killed people, forcefully converted to Islam, burnt houses, abducted & raped women.
Whole strata of muslim society took part.
Idols of Durga were broken. Rioters came well prepared, attacked in lighting suddenness shouting slogans like: Allah hu Akbar, larke lenge Pakistan, Pakistan Zindabad, Kolkata protishodh chai.
On Kojagari Lakshmi Puja, Sarwar instructed his army (Miyar Fauz) to march towards the Sahapur market. Another muslim leader Kaseem also arrived at Sahapur with his private army (Kaseemer Fauz).
Rajendralal Roy Chowdhury's head was severed & presented to Gulam Sarwar.
His 2 young daughters were given to 2 trusted generals of Gulam Sarwar. the rest of the family was killed.
In Nandigram the fauz attacked the Nag residence & burnt the Nag house, a post office & a School. Hindus from nearby area had taken refuge there.
#NoakhaliMassacre #WakeUpHindu
On 13th All temples in CHANGIRGAO area was destroyed. paddy was destroyed.
Hindu women were stripped of their Sindur, ShaNkha & Pola. They were forced to recite Kalma & do Namaz
#NoakhaliMassacre #WakeUpHindu
Suhrawardy Govt denied the charges of forceful conversions. As the news of riot spread Sarwar sent information to the him that Goondas from outside had come & started the riot.
The AIML denied the riots & refused the help of Armed forces.
Swami Trambakananda who witnessed the riot, sent news to Calcutta about the ferocity and inhuman atrocities on Hindus.
#NoakhaliMassacre #WakeUpHindu
Ashoka Gupta rescued many abducted women. Leela Roy rescued about 1300+ abducted women. Many women social workers came to relief work, Sucheta Kripalini was among them.
#NoakhaliMassacre #WakeUpHindu
Hindu leaders from Noakhali & nearby areas sent telegrams describing the riot to SP Mukherjee, Sarat Bose & asked for help on 14th & 15th. they kept pushing the Govt to take actions.
Dr. S.P. Mukherjee & other Hindu Mahasabha leaders sent relief work by trains to Noakhali, Tipperah, Faridganj etc. Many prominent freedom fighters & social workers joined in the relief work.
Gandhiji sent 4 Hindu girls to Sujata Devi, daughter-in-law of Chittaranjan Das for rehabilitation.
It was not enough. The Bengal Govt’s apathy to provide relief and rescue people was prominent.
Bengal Governor, Burrows was holidaying in Darjeeling at that time, he never responded. Patel wanted to visit Noakhali but he was denied entry by Bengal govt.
The Bengal Govt kept the news of the riot suppressed for 5 days, just like they did on Direct Action Day. On 16th, Suhrawardy accepted there was lawlessness in Noakhali, Tipperah & nearby areas.
passive & apathetic relief work started by Bengal Govt.
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
On 18 October, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy personally communicated with Gandhiji, appraising him of the massacre of Hindus in Noakhali and the plight of the Hindu women in particular.
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
MKG decided to visit Noakhali on 19th Oct. he came to calcutta on 6th Nov. he met Suhrawardy there. MKG asked him to "bury hatchet & restore Heart Unity". He arrived Noakhali on 9th Nov.
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
MKG came on barefoot & set up his base in a half-burnt house in Srirampur village, where he stayed until 1 January. In the next 7 weeks he covered 116 miles and visited 47 villages.
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
He organised prayer meetings, met local Muslim leaders & tried to win their confidence. but even on 10th Nov 2 persons were murdered after attending his evening prayer at a relief camp
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
Mistrust between Hindus & Muslims continued to exist & stray incidents of violence occurred even during his stay in Noakhali. his stay in Noakhali was resented by the Muslim leadership.
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
The resentment against Gandhi's stay in Noakhali grew day by day. Towards the end of February 1947 it became vulgar. Gandhi's route was deliberately dirtied everyday and Muslims began to boycott his meetings.
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
On 12 Feb'47, in a rally at Comilla, A. K. Fazlul Huq said that MKG's presence in Noakhali had harmed Islam enormously. His presence had created a bitterness between the communities!
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
Mohandas Gandhi discontinued his mission halfway and started for Bihar on 2 March 1947 at the request of the Muslim League leaders of Bengal.
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
On 7 April, more than a month after leaving Noakhali, MKG received telegrams from Congress Party workers in Noakhali, describing attempts to burn Hindus alive. and how he responded to that?
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
According to historian Rakesh Batabyal, the situation never returned to normal. Sporadic incidents of violence continued and even the police were not spared.
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
On 19 March 1947, the Muslims held secret meetings in various places. They threatened the Hindus with mass slaughter. The moderate Muslims added that this time they would not be able to protect the Hindus.
an analysis from my end #NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits
some excerpts of MKG's Noakhali visit
#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits

#NoakhaliMassacre #GandhijiVisits

শুভ মহালয়া| সবাই নিশ্চিত মহালয়া মানে দূর্গাপূজার দিন গোনা, মহালয়ার ৬ দিন পর মহাসপ্তমি, তাই দেবিকে আমত্রন ইত্যাদি। মহালয়ার তার চেয়ে বড় গুরুত্ব আছে ।
ত্রেতা যুগে ভগবান শ্রীরামচন্দ্র অকালে দেবিকে আরাধনা করেছিলেন লঙ্কা জয় করে সীতাকে উদ্ধারের জন্য|

আসল দূর্গা পূজা হলো বসন্তে, সেটাকে বাসন্তি পূজা বলা হয় । শ্রীরামচন্দ্র অকালে-অসময়ে পূজা করেছিলেন বলে এই শরতের পূজাকে দেবির অকাল-বোধন বলা হয় । তিথিতে যারা পিতৃ-মাতৃহীন তারা তাদের পূর্বপূরূষের স্মরন করে, পূর্বপূরুষের আত্নার শান্তি কামনা করে অঞ্জলি প্রদান করেন ।
সনাতন ধর্ম অনুসারে এই দিনে প্রয়াত আত্মাদের মত্যে পাঠিয়ে দেয়া হয়, প্রয়াত আত্নার যে সমাবেশ হয় তাহাকে মহালয় বলা হয়। মহালয় থেকে মহালয়া । পিতৃপক্ষের ও শেষদিন এটি । সনাতন ধর্মের কার্যাদি কোন তারিখ অনুসারে করা হয় না । তিথি অনুসারে হয় ।

ঐ যে গুলির ফুটোটা দেখছেন। ঐ ফুটো দিয়ে একটু এগিয়ে গেলেই রাজেসের হৃৎপিন্ডটা পাওয়া যাবে। চলুন আমরা সবাই ওর হৃদয়ের পাশে, ওর সাথে গিয়ে একটু বসি।
"তুই চিন্তা করিস না ভাই, আমরা তোর সাথেই আছি। শুধু, তুই একটু আগেই চলে গেলি।
বর্ণমালার প্রতিটা বর্ণ চুঁইয়ে চুঁইয়ে তাজা টকটকে লাল রক্ত গড়িয়ে পড়ছে।
হাজার চেষ্টা করেও সেগুলোর রঙ নীল সাদা করা যাচ্ছে না।
লজ্জা করেনা আপনাদের????? এই ছাত্রগুলিকে গুলি করতে হাত কাঁপল না?????
হাতে যুবশ্রী, কন্যাশ্রীর টাকা আর বুকে গুলি। এই আমাদের বাংলা।

My 2 cents on #BagriMarketFire
Most of the old markets in WB are owned by Hindus. By Destroying them, mostly Marwaris, Gujaratis, Baishya Bengalis & Bihari/UP will be FORCED to sell their shops to MUSLIM PROMOTERS. Same like H selling farmlands to M
This is not the FIRST INSTANCE, destroying the ORGANISED HINDU MARKETS benefits the MUSLIM HAWKER SYNDICATES of TMC who are used to launder money and PAY the TMC .
900+ Shops were gutted, around 10000 people LOST their JOBS , forget Puja Bonus, most are not sure they will get Salaries. On being asked to REACT to the FIRE, in Germany, Pishi shed NO TEARS , She called the HINDU SHOP OWNERS as HOOLIGANS and said THEY DESERVED it.

বালের বুদ্ধিজীবী

বুদ্ধিজীবী কারে কয়?
দু চারটে কবিতা ঝেড়ে
ঝোলা ব্যাগ কাঁধে নিয়ে,
যারা নন্দনে ঘুরে বেড়ায়।

বুদ্ধিজীবী কারে কয়?
গালাগালি ভরা ডায়লগ সহ
সাথে কিছু পানু সিন রেখে,
যারা দু এক পিস সিনেমা বানায়।
বুদ্ধিজীবী কারে কয়?
ক্যানভাসে কিছু রং মাখিয়ে
তাতে বড় একটা টাইটেল লিখে,
যারা গ্যালারিতে প্রদর্শনী লাগায়।

বুদ্ধিজীবী কারে কয়?
কলেজে ছাত্র না পড়িয়ে
দুই চারটে ইংরেজি শিখে,
যারা টিভিতে বসে ভাষণ মারায়।
বুদ্ধিজীবী করে কয়?
ধর্ম মানিনা ভাষণ মেরে
তালে তালে মোল্লা তোষণ করে
যারা ধর্মতলায় দাঁড়িয়ে গরু খায়।

বুদ্ধিজীবী কারে কয়?
জনগণকে বোকা বানিয়
পয়সার লোভে বিকিয়ে গিয়ে,
রাতারাতি এ দল ও দল পাল্টায়।

#ThisDayinHistory #SwamiVivekananda
11th September 1893 Parliament of World’s Religions at Chicago. A young monk from a far away country rose to deliver a soul stirring speech drew the entire world's attention to our Nation's rich history & strong cultural roots.
“Sisters and Brothers of America. [At this moment came the three minute standing ovation from the audience of 7,000] It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. I thank you in name of the most ancient order
of monks in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions; and I thank you in the name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects.

A forgotten history of Bengal. Whether you like it or not.
বালিকার ক্রন্দনধ্বনি…
#BengalHistory #JagatSeth #SarfarajKhan
‘main nehi jaungi… cchor do mujhe”
Maha Chand’s eleven year old bride’s wails and laments was echoing inside the aged Fatehchand’s palace. FatehChand was numb in shock.
#BengalHistory #JagatSeth #SarfarajKhan
Female abduction? FatehChand had seen so many. Nawab Sarfaraj Khan was merciless. After Sujauddin’s death, since Sarfaraj had become the Nawab, this was his favourite past time. He wouldnt let go of any woman…
