Sankrail Remains Tense; Administration Prefers to Cajole Muslim Zealots

Muslim Attackers Break Trekker Owned by Hindus; Hindus Retaliate by Breaking Motorbikes of Muslim Attackers

Time is changing very fast and one of its best instances can be found in Sankrail. Do you know where Sankrail is? Sankrail happens to be a census town in Sadar subdivision of Howrah district in the Indian state of West Bengal and has been witness to the mounting Islamic rage in the neighborhood. What did happen in reality? Well, to the amazement of Hindu community the approach and also the frame of mind of Muslims have been changing with the passing of each day almost!

The situation that rocked Sankrail in recent days had its beginning with the unfortunate death of a Muslim girl owing to the accident of a road trekker on 12th September, 2010. The situation proved to be enough to stimulate local Muslims to go on a rampage and the prime target was none other than innocent Hindus and their fairly affluence. What did startle the Muslim zealots the incident did enrage Hindus in return; the tit for tat played a good role in bringing down the intensity.

Nevertheless, in the entire incident, the most disheartening, scandalous role was played by none other than Shital Sardar, local MLA representing Trinamool Congress (TMC), a perfect Vaishnavite in appearance. Mr. Sardar, along with 2-3 Muslim leaders of TMC, made a brief visit to the area and tried to pacify the fuming Hindus and did all that could make position of Hindus more insecure. It is alleged that he was instructed by the party top brass to calm the situation and disarm Hindus at any cost. This proves furious Hindus can send a shudder through the spine of administration.

Samar Roy, a Hindu, Son of Late Tulsi Roy has been slapped with Case no. SKL 486/10. U/S, 147, 148, 325, 153(A), 186, 353, 427, assaulted by the Police and arrested. Other Hindus facing charges are Netai Bhattacharya, Kanai Bhattacharya, Somnath Das, Arun Das. There has been no arrests of Muslims reported so far.

The situation in the dominion of Sankrail continues to be tense but not out of control. However, the antipathy of local police and administration against local Hindu youth continues, continuing harassment and threats against them remain supreme.
