There was a vulgar nude protest against Islam in Paris. A number of Arab and Iranian women staged an unusual protest in the Louvre Art Museum’s Square to call for equality and secularism on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, March 08, 2014. Tunisian activist Amina al-Souboui, Egyptian Alia al-Mahdi and five other Arab and Iranian women demonstrated fully naked and called, in French, for freedom, equality and secularism. Protest organizer Safia Lebdi says the demonstration was connected to International Women’s Day. She said the women waved flags of Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt and Iran to highlight the many legal and cultural restrictions imposed on women in the Muslim world. These women were protesting against Sharia, Islamic injustice to the Muslim women and obviously the gender discrimination in Islam.
Nude protests in Europe and America are getting more casual than earlier and the electronic medias generally grab it to increase their trp (Television Rating Points) and print medias also crave into the focus on it. It runs across the globe, though vulgar, but the protesters enjoy the rights of vulgarity in America and Europe as such without comments. We, Indians don’t support such vulgarity, but attack upon civil society in the name of defending Islam is brutal enough and more condemnable. The nudity against Islam in Paris created a panic in Kolkata (Capital city of West Bengal and the so called Cultural City of India), while the Islamist maroons went on rampage in Park Circus area on the broad day light on 11th March 2014. Under the nose of Police, the Muslim goons attacked civil society, tried to put fire on vehicles and vandalized public properties. They all did it in the name Islamic peace and in the name of defending Islam.
As a matter of fact the Bengali daily ‘Khabor 365 Din’ carried its cover page of the tabloid entertainment supplement ‘Bibi’ with the lead heading ‘Nari Nirjataner Pratibade’ (In protest of torture against women) with the sub heading ‘Nari Dibase Biswa jure Pratibad’ (Protest worldwide in the Women’s day) and also published the caption ‘Paris-er Luvor Pyramid-er samne femener pratibad’ (Protest of feminists in front of Louvre Pyramid in Paris). The Cover story of the Tabloid was continued in pages 4 and 5, with more photographs of naked women protesting with Arabic texts and perhaps that contained the name of Allah and Muhammad in their bodies.
Traffic in the city was thrown out of gear when people from fundamental Islamic groups put up blockades at places to protest the publication of AFP and Getty Images photographs in ‘Khabor 365 Din’ that they said hurt their religious sentiments. Hurt at their hearts the fundamental Muslims created panic into the Civil society of Kolkata to make the public in their sense with the Jihadi illustrations of Islamic peace as it is.
Kolkata Police said around 15 people gathered outside the newspaper office near Kala Mandir in Shakespeare Sarani at about 11 a.m. and started demonstrating. Police rushed to the spot and dispersed the mob. But it was too late as Islamist of Kolkata retrieved their way of earlier offensive agitations against Taslima Nasrin (actually some TMC leaders issued death warrant against Taslima) , The Statesman (for reproduction an article of Johnn Hari in Independent - Why should I respect these oppressive religions? ) or the American Center (attacking American Centre for the amateur film Innocence of Islam).
An Islamic media claimed that `Khabor 365 Din’ is seen as pro-TMC paper and publication of such “anti-religious” photographs that is seen as “hurting the sentiments” just before the elections, may affect the elections’ outcome, many TMC insiders feel. According to source of CMO, Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee is herself looking at the situation.
They also narrated that Police immediately swung in action and took stock of the situation. Within minutes the news reached the state administration office as well as the Chief Minister Office at Nabbana. Protesters demanded the arrest of the Editor of the Bengali Daily. Source said, Police Head Quarter at Lalbazar called the Assistant editor of the `Khabor 365 Din’ Mr Abhijit Majumder and their Crime reporter to meet the higher police officials.
They entire area from Park Circus Maidan (the original hub of Indian Mujaheddin) upto Mallick Bazar was turned panic stricken as the fanatic Muslims started attacking on Hindu properties and vehicles owned by Hindus and they also put fire on a huge number of copies of the impugned supplement of ‘Khabar 365 Din’.
The TMC leader and State Urban Minister, Mr. Firhad Hakim (Bobby) and the Imam of Nakhoda Mosque rushed to the spot, but did that what they knew well.
Kolkata again saw another nightmare of the peaceful activities of Islam that gave a sign of Islamic control over the city of Direct Action perpetrated by the Rajakars and the Muslim Leaguers before independence. They are still living and increasing in Kolkata under the protection of present ruling party.
Hindus of Kolkata feel an insecurity under Islamic brawl and Mamata Banerjee has nothing to do to check Islamic fundamentalism and fanatic insurgency in Kolkata.
