  • ISIS feel Bangladesh is a nation well affected by poverty in all its areas which results in good chances of obtaining potential recruits
  • Benkin, the Economist verified first hand that India is no alien to ISIS’s presence and there exists an ISIS cell operating in Kolkata
  • The population of Hindus due to the radical acts by the group in Bangladesh has reached an endangered species level

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), these words when stringed together can evoke terror in the bravest of hearts whether that heart belongs to a Christian, a Muslim or a Hindu. Each of us is now well aware of their growing power, the attacks in Paris, blasts at the Brussels airport and now the recent Orlando shootings are all being linked to ISIS with the tag ‘act of terrorism’.

Keeping their ever growing roots in mind it’ll be foolish to assume that ISIS has not set its shop anywhere except the middle east. As a matter of fact according to Dr Richard L. Benkin ‘ISIS is now well established in South Asia.’

His findings prove that the tech-savvy terrorist group is not only a threat to the American nation but to the entire world. Bangladesh, a nation that shares borders with India, is unsurprisingly the best playground for the group to spread radicalization. The said statement being true for many reasons.

Bangladesh is a nation well affected by poverty in all its areas which results in good chances of obtaining potential recruits. Adding to that it’s a nation with the majority of its population belonging to the Muslim community hence overpowering the minority Hindu’s.

Many believe, there is an unholy nexus between the Bangladeshi policeman and political parties. All of the reasons together prove Bangladesh to be a safe haven for a terrorist organisation. An example of which could be seen in the eradication of many religious leaders, activists and also in the ethnic cleansing of the Hindus and other minorities.

Speaking of the statistics, the population of Hindus due to the radical acts by the group in Bangladesh has reached an endangered species level with the number plummeting down below ‘one in every eleven citizens’.

According to the indiapost.com report, Dr Richard L. Benkin claims that his associates in Dhaka, Bangladesh identified a house that was the centre of carrying out all activities by ISIS but the government and other authorities in Bangladesh and in India turned a blind eye to the information. He also made a point by stating that all the arrests made for the murders of civilians are in a way a source of income for the Bangladeshi police.

Taking the 8000-20,000 Taka bribe for springing the prisoners and thereby protecting the personal interests of political leaders is only a better business decision than helping him try to break the myth of Bangladesh being a ‘moderate Muslim nation.’

Benkin, an Economist verified first hand that India is no alien to ISIS’s presence and there exists an ISIS cell operating in Kolkata. He says that those familiar with the state of West Bengal know that it followed an open borders policy that set the groundwork for the radical activity we see today in West Bengal. Narrating his experiences in the villages he visited he talks about a young mother who dealt with inactivity from the West Bengal police when her daughter was abducted by the radicals and a story of another young woman he met who refused Islamist demands that they leave their land.

India is ISIS’ next big target but there’s an ‘Ignorance is bliss’ kind of attitude towards everything documented by Dr Benkin and his associates. This is the sole reason ISIS is well established in South Asia and has created a strong presence in Kolkata, now making its way to more parts of India by eradicating its allies.

    Dr. Belkins is right. Indians are living in blind ignorance about the nefarious designs of a cult. They have been brainwashed into this pit by 60 yrs of “secular” gibberish. Even the rants of the Owaisis have not alarmed the avowed secularists – who continue to lead others into the same pit. But I’m pretty sure – a couple of such unforgivable incidents and the “moderate” muslims would be forced to side with one or the other and the sleeping Hindus will wake up for once.

  • Aparna Gupta

    I believe that Bengal should take serious steps towards countering IS activities otherwise it will become more difficult gradually.

  • SuchindranathAiyer

    What are Rajnath Singh and his Boss upto? Is this not a manifest danger that goes beyond “law and order” demanding the invocation of Constitutional provisions of President’s rule to exterminate the threat? Or, are they planning a “Tolerant” Bharatha Rathna and Nobel attempt redux with Shayries, Iftaars, skull caps, Airliner Hi Jacks, and alien occupation of strategically crucial Indian Territory to appease Obama and Sonia Gandhi’s chelas? The only piece of this action that I heartily approve will be an attack on Parliament. IF it is successful.

Shoot The Rapist At The Sight

 And which type is contributing more dangerously to the society can easily be measured with our simple plus and minus equation

  • India is plagued with a disease called Rape
  • There are no rigorous punishments for rape
  • Rapists openly commit crimes without anny fear

Why the clamour only for the rigorous punishment for rape and other sadistic crimes which have their roots in the mental-degeneration? Apart from the toughest punishment to the perpetrators, let’s go deeper to analyze what could be the possible  “causes”  that push men to commit rape. Why so much mental degeneration that certain individuals can stoop to the gutter being to their status, their position and social values? Well, how to address those issues is certainly a challenge. And that “challenge” certainly calls for a serious brain-storming and a serious self-assessment vise-a vise the environment in which we all are living.

True, in the physical world we are highly convinced brag about that healthy environment is a must for our healthy living. Even kids know these days that we can’t breathe well if our surroundings are filled with high levels of  “toxicity”. We have well studied through our academic textbooks that people invite the environmental disaster if they keep on allowing excessive emission of CO2, CO, methane and other dangerous gases into the atmosphere. We have fully acknowledged that each tall and black chimney of the industries and the nozzles of the motor vehicles are here only to mar the beauty of this planet? What kind of damages the toxic gases are doing to our ecosystem are not at all tough job to analyze with modern appliances. Again, a lot amount of books have been published to create the awareness, to inform us about the scientifically tested measures to resolve the environmental concerns.

However, do we have the same amount of literature that pinpoint the “causes” which contribute to turning “males into perverts”? Who else is emitting the “toxic substances” that overpower the inborn sensitivity of the deviant? What are the properties of toxic filth that is polluting the mind-scape of the society? Now we have Donald Trump, the president of the USA, whom many prefer call him a pervert. At this rate, the number perverts are increasing and they have become dangerously ubiquitous. And, all those perverts have brought nightmares to the ill-fated females. We often stage candle march in protest against the rape, but remain blind to the glaring “causes”. Should we still fiddle about and be appreciative of the society that shameless covers itself with the vulgarity — the “toxicity” that might numb the sanity of males? Watch out, dear friends, those perverts have begun to see even “baby girls” as objects of lust!

Please note:  what our sages said:  “What you see that you think, what you think that you do and what you do that become !!!!”

Again, I would like to draw another similarity with what prompt big people to “rape”/violate the harmony of the Mother Earth. The case is very regularly brought out by the conscious citizens across the country. A senior journalist Patricia Mukhim of Meghalaya has pointedly driven home recently how the “greed for money” has corrupted many leaders who are trying hard to justify the senseless exploitation of the “body” of Mother Earth. Many big shots of big companies struggle to convince the politicians to tweak the laws to grant the permission to perpetually “rape” the country.

In my mind, both are infected with common syndromes! While the one type is interested in the body of the females, the other type has a fetish for the rocky body of the “Mother Earth”. And which type is contributing more dangerously to the society can easily be measured with our simple plus and minus equation.

The rape victims are not getting the justice they deserve.

Let’s assess the issues from another angle, given the advancement of medical science. Till some years back malaria, dengue, cholera, HIV, smallpox were life-taking diseases. But the medical science has pretty successfully eradicated or contained them all. The scientists have correctly identified the causes of those dangerous diseases and recommended the remedial measures. No doubt, that is a very productive achievement. However, why have the modern studies practically failed to “identify the causes”  of the pandemic rise of the horrendous instances of rapes and criminality associated with them? Is it not a strong slap in the face of the modern civilization considering we have not yet spelt out the causes and the characteristic symptoms the  “toxic emitters” who turn decent males into sadists? How long will we endure the depravity which has already strangulated the decency of the society? Should we still wait to work out the tough laws? Should we still hitch to explore for the “causes” and remedial measures? I guess the time is ripe that each morally conscious individual be allowed a shotgun to shoot the “perversion and depravity” of any kind at sight!
