Durga Puja: Iconoclasts break puja images in Maldha District of Mamata Pradesh – Gautam Sen

22 Chakra Club Durga Puja

On the night of October 4th some unidentified miscreants severely damaged the images of the Durga pratima and other deities in the Alipur village under Kaliachak PS of Muslim majority Maldah district. This Durga Puja is 65 tears old and is popularly known as “22 Chakra Club Durga Puja.” Hindus are agitated and aggrieved. The local village panchayat is of BJP. Elected pradhan is Smt. Sampa Karmaker. There are RSS shakhas too. On October 5th morning district level police officers visited the place. But astonishingly no FIR has been registered. The club committee has decided to perform this year’s puja with a new pratima which will be brought from Malda town. — Gautam Sen
