In Math Bari village under Sandeshkhali P.S. in Basirhat subdivision, a nominal Hindu youth, named, Sahadev Sadhukhan, an owner of sweet shop, started selling cooked beef on and from World Navi Divas. This area is Hindu Dominated. So when local Hindu people started to protest, he stopped selling. Local Hindu people ordered him to apologize, he had to go to Ras Temple with a bare head and distribute sweets to the devotees at free of cost. But he, backed by local Muslim zealots, did not oblige. As a result, tension created in the area. Local Hindus stopped buying sweets from his shop and also boycotting him socially. In the same area, young girls, belonging to Adivasi community, working in the local brick-field, are being physically and mentally assaulted by local Islamist elements. As they are poor, there is nobody to help them.
In the same subdivision in Malanchabazar area, under Minakha police station., which is a predominantly Hindu area, Rupban Molla, a Muslim and son of Kaosar Molla is selling beef for last ten days under a bridge for the first time. Hindus consider eating beef to be sacreligious. This indicates that now in West Bengal, anybody can sell beef anywhere and with no opposition. In the same area, Joydev Adhikari, a Hindu activist was severely manhandled by local Muslims on the day of last Panchayat election as he was involved in active campaign for a local BJP candidate. He is very influential among local Hindus. But this incident has lowered the morale of the Hindus.
Family members of Akunji, a ferocious Muslim robber, now in jail, have constructed a huge mosque in Sarberia village in Sandeshkhali Police Station. His family members and other Muslims are involved in illegal smuggling. But, unfortunately, the local officer in charge, Mr. Gautam Mitra, considered close to the Akunji family and provides them all round protection instead of arresting them. It is worthy of mentioning that Hindus were attacked by local Muslim activists with arms in the day of Holi, a religious Hindu festival, in 2006 in the same village. Mrs. Kajal Halder and her son, activists of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, were seriously injured. Police appeared at the site of incident after two hours, though local police office is close by and arrested the suffering Hindus instead of the Muslim fanatics.
Hindus have started migrating to safer places from Minakha, Sandeshkhali, Bhangore, Haroa in North 24 Parganas district and many villages of Diamond harbour, Magrahat in South 24 Parganas district .The local administration is completely silent in this regard. When they are contacted by local Hindu Samhati leaders, they are saying this migration is due to political reasons, not due to communal reason.
