Bengal for Bangladeshis, not Bharatiyas: Mamata’s hidden message

The newspaper reported that Mamata Banerjee has emphatically stated that if one has to live in West Bengal, one has to “speak Bengali.”

The thinly veiled political statement here is clear. Mamata wants to send a message to illegal Muslim Bangladeshi infiltrators that “you are fine here, I have no problems with you here. I only want to make sure non-Bengali Bharatiyas do not come to this state.”  You see, the “Bengali language” test is one that every illegal Bangladeshi infiltrator will easily pass: after all, they also speak the same Bengali language.  But a Hindu, Jai Shri Ram chanting person from Orissa, or Karnataka, or UP, or Gujarat will not pass this test.

So Mamata’s criteria for residency in West Bengal is clear: Bengalis (both Bharatiya and Bangladeshi) are fine. But other Bharatiyas are not welcome. And her other actions made it further clear that among Bengalis, it is the Muslim Bengalis who get first-class treatment, and the Hindu Bengalis are second class.  

In short, Mamata has declared that West Bengal, a state in the Bharat’s union, is now an extended, autonomous territory of Bangladeshis, where Bengali Hindus may live as second class citizens, and all non-Bengalis are not welcome.

I wonder how much longer Amit Shah will tolerate this type of insidious anti-national leadership and vision of Mamata Banerjee. I request Shri Amit Shah to please impose President’s rule on West Bengal. Please drive out the illegal Bangladeshi Muslims. Please break the nexus of TMC leaders and street violence. Please arrange for the Rohingyas to be removed from this already toxic and volatile mix. West Bengal is falling out of Bharat’s orbit at a rapid rate.
