250 Dharmic Organizations in UK plan Vigil on 29th, July at 3PM and request to meet Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee

London, July 27th, 2015: More than 250 organisations in the UK are backing calls to meet with the visiting Indian Chief Minister of West Bengal, Ms. Mamata Banerjee, currently on an official state visit to UK, over the plight of Hindu girls and women in her state, the ongoing riots causing massive exodus of Hindus across many districts of West Bengal and terror activities targeted against the Hindu community. These organizations represent the ‘Dharmic ’communities comprising of Hindus, Jains and Sikhs in UK.

Leaders from these Dharmic communities in UK want to discuss cases of kidnap, harassment, rape and abuse of Hindu females in the state, which has been going on for several years. The recent case of 14 year old Tuktuki Mandal has highlighted their plight and placed the spotlight on West Bengal, where the Hindu community is in a despicable condition facing frequent organized attacks.

There are more than 34 known organized attacks which have taken place during recent years against the Hindu community and per UN report 28,000 girls and women missing in just one year. The Burdwan blasts which were meant to target Hindus during Durga Puja in the house of a political leader shows the reach of terror elements in the ruling politic of the state. The association of Ahmed Hassan Imran, a member of parliament from state of West Bengal, with known international terror organizations being investigated by central investigating agencies in India is deeply concerning. Hence there has to be a systemic failure and the Dharmic community in UK is deeply concerned over it.

Mukesh Naker from DSP said “We want to meet the Chief Minister to find out what she and her administration will be doing to correct the unacceptable situations in West Bengal with immediate effect and in a tangible manner.”

A vigil to safeguard the interests of Hindu community and to protect the lives and dignity of minor girls and women in the State of West Bengal will be held.

Members from the UK’s Dharmic organisations will be holding a vigil on Wednesday 29th July at 3 pm at Asia House, which will be attended by Ms Banerjee.  The Chief Minister will then visit the Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindranath Tagore statues to pay her respects. Members will also be holding their vigil there too raising awareness for their campaign.

We are planning to do a vigil / protest at the following places where Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be attending.

  1. Asia House, 63 New Cavendish Street, London, W1G 7LP between 3.00pm – 4.30pm. This is a meeting of businessmen and businesswomen at an event organised by KPMG and FICCI.
  1. After numbered (1) above, she will have a trip to Tavistock Square to pay floral tributes to the statue of Mahatma Gandhi and to Gordon Square to the bust of Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore. It is likely that these tributes will take place at about 5.00pm.
  2. 3rd protest at the LSE but we are waiting for details
