West Bengal: Communal tension grips Tehatta school

Communal tension grips Tehatta schools over Saraswati puja celebrations, TMC dismissive
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted her opposition to the date of the Union Budget, citing Saraswati Puja
But when the puja actually happened, several schools across Bengal, including a few situated just a stone's throw away from her administration in Kolkata, were forced to cancel the festivities fearing reprisals from Islamist groups.
The reason: They wanted Prophet Muhammad's birthday to be celebrated first. This was allegedly a precondition set by the Rajarhat Imam Council. Rajarhat is a newly built township, less than 10 km from Kolkata
Schools that opposed the Rajarhat diktat saw posters on school walls asking to celebrate, complete with the date and time of the event. Welcome to the new Bengal, were hallowed secular institutions, including schools, are facing increasing interference from the Islamist radicals, even as the state's ruling party shamelessly passes the buck or opts for outright denial

West Bengal Police is subservient to TMC, their cadres, supporters and goons. They do not have option to work professionally. Nudging them does not help. Unless there is a complete overhaul and full scale Police Reform with Police being freed from the clutches of Politicians and the ruling party, situation will not improve. Police have failed in their basic mandate for enforcing and upholding the rule of law without bias. more

I believe the central govt. has started acting by creating a digital divide...which created lot of hue & cry in the country.....we are bound to push more and more cashless system so that all will be forced to come up....else leave the country.....does it sound good?Only some protection is required for the elderly....Regards On Wed, 08 Feb 2017 19:26:57 +0530 "SOUDIP BHADURI" wrote > more
