Hindu Morale Broken in Bhagalpur
NDA/JDU/BJP arrests Hindu leaders in Bihar to Appeal to the Muslim Vote-Bank

A city named Bhagalpur in Bihar suddenly appeared on news headlines in 1989. The reason: the infamous Bhagalpur riots. In the following article, we look back at that incident and evaluate how the implications are still affecting the Hindu population of that state.

In 1989, following the Ram Shila installation events in neighboring state of U.P, a large group of Muslim activists attacked and ransacked Parbati, an area inhabited by Hindu students and youths, killing over 100 Hindu boys and injuring hudreds more.

Thousands of Hindus had to leave Parbati at that time, due to the extreme conditions created by the well-planned Islamist nexus operating for the last 30 years in Bihar.

The police appeared virtually ineffective to counter the carnage, and in an effort to contain the situation and also in panic, a local group of Hindus under the leadership of one Kameshwar Yadav, built up a resistance force to stop the one-way pogrom. This vigilante group attacked one of Eastern India's Islamist hubs, named Tatarpur, known as an area of Muslim extremism. The one-way pogrom in Parbati was followed by a riot resulting in the deaths of several Islamic strong-men and many innocent lives, both Muslim and Hindu.

The RJD government which ruled Bihar for over 15 years, realizing the sensitivity and delicateness of the Bhagalpur situation had tried to keep the situation in balance by not pressing charges against members of either religious community. At the same time, the RJD leadership was accused of being involved in the multi-million dollar animal fodder scam and fell out of favor of the Bihari populace. In 2005 Nitish Kumar's coalition of JDU and BJP swept the elections on the campaign promise of arresting those involved in the fodder scam.

CM Kumar has not been able to fulfill his promise at all, and his ministry have shown no indication of ever doing so in the last 3 years. Instead, his JDU/BJP government has arrested Kameshwar Yadav and his associates for inciting the riots after facing severe pressure from Islamic fundamentalist elements. On the other side, no action has been taken against the Muslim activists who initiated the riots with their vitriolic one-way pogrom.

The BJP, once known as a pro-Hindu party is steadily losing support locally among the frustrated Hindu population, who feel betrayed and cheated by the party and constitute well over 70% of the voter base.

Editor's Comment:
The actions of the NDA-JDU/BJP government has empowered and energized the fundamentalist forces in the Muslim community to further radicalize the Muslim youth in Bhagalpur and Bihar. As the residents here have stated, the Islamic extremists have succeeded in coaxing the Muslims in Champanagar area of Bhagalpur to build a taller mosque than the highest Hindu Manasa temple in that locality just to spite the local Hindu population. The JDU/BJP government has not been able to fulfill its main campaign promise of persecuting the fodder scam victims, but has only satisfied the whims of the Muslim fanatic groups to curry favor with them for the next elections.
