West Bengal govt has banned BJP MPs and MLAs from visiting or holding rallies in the Bengal’s Malda district – they were on a fact finding mission about the recent estimated lakh or more Muslims who went on massive riots in the Kaliachak area of Malda, burning a police station, tens of govt and BSF vehicles and Hindu homes and shops. Per reports, this riot had backing of all three communal parties – the TMC, CPM, the Congress at the grassroots level. So far they have ONLY 11 arrests have been made and that too of the fringe protesters, but not the leaders. And, more importantly, people feel that Mamata Banerjee, TMC and West Bengal govt has not done anything to either provide security or restore the confidence of the shocked and shaken Hindu community both in this district and statewide.
