Per news reports, a fringe muslim organisation in Malda, West Bengal protesting some comments made in another state torched buses, hurled bombs on police stations, damaged BSF vehicles, hindu home and shops in the Malda. People broke down talking about this and were quoted, “We have never faced such incident. We are extremely terrified. We have informed to our higher authority and now waiting for them to take action.” Incidentally, muslims are in majority at 52% in the Malda area. Sadly, major national and Bengali media has provided little to no coverage and secular political parties – most of usual suspects are quiet.
