Bengaluru is the ‘home away from home’ for lakhs of Bengalis who, failing to make a promising future in communism-wrecked Bengal, have moved out of their home state. Though there is no denying that their merit has brought great gains for many industries across metros and tier-1 cities, we have observed that a sizeable portion of this populace carry that ‘communism’ very close to their heart while relocating elsewhere. It is the very communism that sucked the lifeblood of their state for three decades, turned it into an employment desert, and had them sending resumes to corporates in Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru.
The Facebook group ‘Bengali in Bangalore’ has over 33 thousand members, mostly Bengalis residing in Bengaluru (liberals still insist on using the colonial-era name ‘Bangalore’), who often share information amongst themselves using this platform. In a now deleted post, a user sought to confirm if during the Janta Curfew, the government was aiming to spread some disinfectants. The absurdity of the hypothesis aside, the comment section to this post called for serious legal action.
As one lady user suggested that all should abide by the Prime Minister’s request, hateful messages flooded in from leftist trolls. Social media is a place for colliding opinions, and hence we are not shocked by this battle of words, but things took a serious turn when one user, Ranjeet Mazumdar, who is also a former SFI member as per his Facebook profile, suggested that by agreeing to observe the Janta Curfew, and by having a DP of the Prime Minister, the commentator was supporting ‘Hindu Terrorism’. When this was objected to, the ex-SFI member threatened the lady with physical assault. It is ironic that while communist Ranajeet Mazumdar calls the lady a ‘terrorist supporter’, it was the communist member himself who was issuing verbal threats – but this is not surprising given Communism’s track record of violence, genocide and mass suffering caused in the last 100 years.
There was another Hinduphobic bigot, Subhojit Kumar Ganguly, who mocked the self-disciplinary measure suggested by the government to control the Covid19 pandemic. He continued slamming anyone with an opposite view as a ‘Gau Mutra drinking kind’. He also went on to abuse the country’s PM as ‘a bloody liar’.
We have the mainstream liberal media in Bharat and the West to thank for normalising this ‘gau-mutra’ slur used to shame and silence Hindus; the same slur was used by the Pulwama fidayeen suicide bomber Adil Ahmad Dar. Coincidentally, the same left-liberals would pee in their pants before daring to call Muslims ‘camel-urine drinkers’, which it can be argued is a much more mainstream practise among Muslims as camel urine was recommended as medicine by Muhammad himself as per Hadith, a foundational Islamic religious text.
Those who understand Bengali can read the heated argument between supporters and dismissers of the curfew, and judge how communists fly off the handle and resort to violent threats and expletives within minutes. These two men were both against the Janta Curfew and their profiles have been reported to Bangalore City police for threatening and abusing the PM and ordinary citizens. With virtual abuses growing, for a group with 33 thousand members it is expected that the admin will be more responsible with what goes on in the group and what kind of people peddle their narratives.
How the city of joy, Kolkata, got its first Covid19 patient is a case study. The 18-year-old son of a top Kolkata bureaucrat, Arunima De, was partying with his infected friends in London and caught the virus there. The Oxford student was advised to visit the hospital and get himself thoroughly checked by the medical team at the airport, but he ignored this advice. He roamed about the city malls for two days before testing positive with Coronavirus.
His mother Arunima De is a senior bureaucrat at the state home department, who functions from Nabanna, the State Secretariat of West Bengal. During those two days, this lady who failed to ensure her son isolated himself at home, interacted with several high officials and ministers. The father of the 18-year-old is a paediatrician functioning from Krishna Nagar, West Bengal, which makes the situation graver as he must have examined numerous children during those two days. The family received a sharp rebuke from the Chief Minister and netizens tore them to bits.
It is shocking that people with such educated backgrounds exhibit such callousness in the face of a global threat. But West Bengal’s senior bureaucrat Arunima De, her doctor husband, and their Oxford-returned son are not alone in this.
Renowned Bengali actor-singer and rabid leftist, Anjan Dutta drew massive flak for his nonchalant attitude after he flouted precautionary guidelines, and shortly after returning from Australia via Singapore, attended a high-profile cultural program in the city. This function was held at the Bangladesh Deputy High Commission and was attended by prominent attendees from the political and cultural scene. “I maintained a two-metre distance from everyone during the event.” said an unapologetic Dutta in his defense.
35 years of rowdiness and goondaism during CPI(M) rule still runs in the veins of its Marxist followers. Sadly, the Mamata government, busy with minority-pandering, couldn’t do much to uplift the decayed state from the gutter the previous government pushed it into. People of Bengal have rejected communism long back, this dictatorial ideology and its goondaism now runs in the bloodline of Facebook trolls and minuscule celebrities.
