Makara Sankranti is one of the holiest Hindu festivals marking the transition of the Sun into the zodiac sign of Makara rashi (Capricorn) in its celestial path. It is primarily a harvest festival; Hindus also believe that it marks the arrival of spring in India.  Makara Sankranti  is celebrated across the length and breadth of India typically on 15 January every year.

The Makara Sankranti  of 2014 for the Hindus of Panchla (Howrah district, West Bengal) was marked by violence, blood, and gore. IndiaFacts  gives below a brief summary of the episode.

The trouble began when some Muslim participants of a rally, taken out on the occasion of Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi   harassed Hindu girls and the Hindu youths protested. This led to large scale violence and unprovoked attack on Hindus by the Muslim rallyists.

The violence took place in the presence Trinamool Congress MLA Gulshan Mallick  and the Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Panchla Police Station .

The office of the District Superintendent of Police and also the camp of Rapid Action Force (RAF) are situated in the vicinity of the location where the attack occurred. Equally, the Panchla Police Station is only 3 km away.

Hindu houses and shops have been looted and damaged. Some Hindus have been injured in the attack. Affected Hindu villages are Kolepara, Santrapara  and Pachalpara .

2) Residence of Amar Ray.  While two cows have been looted, another cow was slaughtered. Even the cistern was also not spared. It was damaged as a result of heavy bombing.

7) A furniture shop owned by Banshi Pachal –who also sold the furniture himself–was pillaged.

9) The residence of Bulbul Koley was attacked and bombed resulting in the injury of a cow inside the house.

Large parts of West Bengal have recently become the targets of wanton aggression by Muslims against Hindus. Howrah is no different.

In 2007, a similar incident of unprovoked violence against Hindus occurred at Panchla Bazaar.  This caused the exodus of a large number of Hindus who have never returned.

Similarly, in 2010, there was another attack against Hindus at the instigation of a school headmaster, a Muslim named Dil Bahar in Panchla. Hindus in Hakola and Kulat villages were the targets of Muslim atrocities which included but were not limited to the molestation of Hindu girls and women. The complete account can be found here .

Concerned citizens from all over India can call this number any time and politely inquire and follow up the status of the incident. Public pressure on the police will go a long way in helping deliver justice to the innocent Hindus who were traumatised for no fault of theirs.
