Yesterday was the 75th anniversary of the Noakhali carnage. In this forgotten corner of British India,starting 10th October 1946 (happened to be Kojagari Laxmi Puja Day),Muslim League mobs,led by one Golam Sarwar, began a campaign of murder,rape and forcible #EastBengalHindus

conversion of the 20% Hindu population of the district. Hindus were force-fed a meal of beef,usually by killing that very Hindu's cow. The Muslim League government then in power in Bengal Presidency supported it. Sir Frederick Burrows,the callous,heartless #EastBengalHindus
British Governor,quipped to Acharya J B Kripalani,"Rapes are natural since Hindu women are generally prettier than their Muslim sisters"!

Gandhiji visited Noakhali and stayed there for months. He tried to spread the message of love and goodwill and wanted #EastBengalHindus

the Hindus to come back to their devastated huts and the Muslims to welcome them. The result was exactly ZERO.

The tormented Hindus of East Bengal sought refuge in India,particularly in West Bengal. Here they met with neglect and derision from the #EastBengalHindus

government. Leftists exploited the situation and prevented their proper rehabilitation,as Leftists always do. Then the ultimate paradox-the refugees forgot about who persecuted them and how.

When I was just eight years old I saw many of them living in a state #EastBengalHindus

of indescribable squalor in the concourse of Sealdah railway station in Kolkata. Since then I have been troubled by their plight and also wondered how this horrendous Human Rights violation (HRV),involving 1.2 crores of Hindus,had been hidden from the world. #EastBengalHindus

Much later I got the answer. If the victims themselves choose to hide it and sing the song of 'Communal Harmony' then who would be bothered about by whom and how they were displaced?

Since then I had made it a mission of my life to bring this to the #EastBengalHindus

notice of the world. The result of it was my book "My People Uprooted: The Exodus of Hindus from East Pakistanand Bangladesh"(Synergy Books India,New Delhi) of which the 4th Ed. is due to come out any day now.

It is therefore a matter of great satisfaction #EastBengalHindus

that the world is slowly waking up to it. Yesterday @parantapah organised a series of talks on zoom on the Noakhali carnage. @Aabhas24 has run a long thread of tweets acquainting everyone with the HRV. PSSROY27 has tweeted on the subject with a photograph. #EastBengalHindus

Among books in English (there are several in Bengali): "Bengal's Hindu Holocaust" by Sachi G Dastidar; "A Quiet Case of Ethnic Cleansing" by Richard L. Benkin. And books by Bangladeshi Muslim authors,such as Abul Barkat,Muntassir Mamoon, #EastBengalHindus

Taslima Nasrin,Salam Azad,etc. There is only one lesson to be learnt from this: THE TRUTH WILL OUT. Despite the nefarious attempts of Left-Nehruvian-Liberals to hide it. #EastBengalHindus
