under Joynagar Police Station in South 24 Parganas district,when 3
Muslim teachers demanded a specific place inside the School to offer
daily Namaz, Hindus apprehended that virtually it will become a Mosque.
So, on 22nd June
2009, Hindu students of higher classes of the school protested and gave a
memorandum to the Headmaster signed by 350 students of the same school.
Due to this, the Muslims became angry. Muslims gathered in large number
from nearby 6 villages and attacked the School, destroyed its property,
beat up Hindu students. Next the Muslims targeted nearby 3 Hindu clubs,
looted their property, damaged the clubs and then started attacking
Hindu localities of the village. They beat up many Hindus, molested many
Hindu women, damaged their houses, abused the Hindu women with obscene
words and gestures. 7 Hindus injured, 3 among them very seriously. The damaged Hindu clubs are Joy Maa Kali Sporting Club, Udayan Sangha and Binoyee Sporting Club. In
the beginning, Hindus resisted the attack and some Muslims too were
injured. One Hindu woman fought valiantly and injured a Muslim when he
tried to molest her. Hindu Samhati has taken up the matter, mobilizing the local clubs to put up a strong resistance.
