Mamata Banerjee Gives Notice To 125 Vidya Bharti Schools To Shut Down Which Are Owned By Hindus

Courtesy :

In spite of the increasing threat from Islamic fundamentalists in the state, the West Bengal government has in its cross hairs schools run by trusts believed to be close to RSS.

The Times of India published a report stating that Mamata Banerjee has put on notice 125 schools for “fanning religious intolerance” and “deviating from the state-mandated syllabus”.

Both accusations are very serious in nature and might end with the closure of the schools.

Three trusts, Sarada Shishu Tirtha, Saraswati Shishu Mandir and Vivekanada Vidya Vikas Parishad, run the schools. In total they run 350 schools in the state having a combined student strength of 60,000.

The closure of the 125 schools would mean that the education of thousands of students will be directly affected.

It has been reported that state education minister Partha Chatterjee has been handed a list by chief minister Mamata Banerjee containing the names.

“We have asked these 125 schools to explain why they have deviated from the state curriculum. We have decided to withdraw their affiliation and will shut them down if there is no satisfactory explanation,” he said.

Students of Tehatta High School protest against the closure of the school ahead of Saraswati Puja under Islamist pressure.Twitter

The report also says that the issue of these specific schools was raised by CPM MLA Manas Mukherjee and “as if on cue” minister Chatterjee brought out the list of 125 indicating an anti-BJP axis in the state.

In its rabid hatred for the BJP, Trinamool Congress has been opposing all the policies of the Central Government, including demonetization and Aadhar-linking schemes.

Such has been Mamata’s febrile opposition to the Modi government that under her rule, the shahi imam of Kolkata’s Tipu Sultan Mosque Maulana Nurur Rehman Barkati issues fatwa against the Prime Minister and death threats against liberal writers such as Tarek Fatah.

Mamata is being criticized on social media for the move against the schools:

West Bengal has over 2000 unregistered madrasas. Radical teachings are imparted in many of them. The madrasas are reportedly funded by sources in Wahhabi countries of the Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia.

Students in the madrasas are taught a very fundamentalist version of Islam which goes directly against the secular ethos of the Constitution.

But Mamata turns a blind eye to all of that and instead takes no action against fundamentalist who terrorise schools in the state.

Mamata Banerjee has also been criticized for paying (and increasing) stipends for the Islamic clerics from the taxpayers’ money but failing to honor the martyrdom of soldiers from the state.

    I fail to understand why we need to always pull down the majority and favour the minority. Why can’t we uplift a section of society without harming the other. If the political parties don’t give up this vote bank politics the day is not far when we will be enslaved once again

    School and college are for the education, not for politics and fulfilling self desizer. If it so, it should be shut down whether it is owned by any community but the decision should be taken without any bias and lenient towards one segment. Most of the political parties and outside forces are dividing the national on caste system for their personal gain which should be understand by us and give them a proper reply by uniting themselves through legal and road show by taking the full confidence into the media.
    If are you correct, come together for fight without fearing from the opposite side. OTHERWISE don’t misguide the people by putting such article on social media.

    Her effort will be to convert those schools into maracas.She is adopting a pro Bangladeshi Muslims appeasement policy.Her party is going to have the same fate as Samajwadi party and Bahujan Samaj Party in UP in the next elections.

    Education part and political part must be seperate and education is a religious there must not be any comparable with seperately . The thing said by our honourable cm . Not expecting …

    Firstly we must appreciate that ancient Hindu teachings are the best life style designed by the best thinkers it’s unfortunate that the actual sense of these thoughts are distorted by the modern world.
    Secondly even if Didi is willing to close down these Hindus based classes than should should have atleast some courage to close those Madarsas which are no more than nonsense and actually radicalising Muslims children’s and youth.
    All steps taken by Didi is to create united vote bank of Muslims for TMC.I believe now after UP election she must be able to understand that her these moves now will not give her old mileage.
    At the same time taking unjustified action against Hindus will create a bad name for her in the Indian history.And I doubt whether favouring fanatically Muslims will she be able to categories he in the category of Muslim preachers.

    Sad mamata. The day has come when you need to decimate education in order to satisfy vote banks. Why are you doing this? Can’t you politicians leave well alone. Seperate politics from education. Plz Madam Banerjee don’t turn your state into a ” murkho”. A humble request from concerned citizens.

    Mamata Banerjee’s chapter as C M needs to be closed in West Bengal. She was an idiot, is an idiot, will remain an idiot. She needs to be thrown out of politics.

    • March 28, 2017 at 3:39 am

      She should thrown out not just from politics, but from this land itself. She is a terrorist.. how could she take action against education n students.. she is a slowpoison to communal harmony.. ppl of west Bengal should take serious action on her that she never come back to elections! She is disturbing WB ppl n even the nation..

    It would be better if these 125 schools setup their own University and Board… No need of following these stupid rules set by any idiot.. Education is backbone of our society and is our future…. Plz Mamta you better leave India.. #Modi plz fund Mamta to leave India I will pay 50 per cent Income tax for this year!!

  • March 14, 2017 at 5:57 pm

    I believe that the government of West Bengal be declared “anti national” and dissolved.
    Impose a strict President rule on the state for at least 10 years and perform a thorough cleansing before handing the reigns over to the democratic process..

    Mamta off late came to know that her father was a Muslims so from that day she is all for Muslims. I had read somewhere that her father was a Muslim which fact she didn’t know.

    Its time to get a brain test done

  • March 15, 2017 at 6:49 pm

    The frequency with which mamta banerjee has been indulging in humiliating and subduing Hindus in Bengal, it gives an impression that Aurangzeb’s soul has entered her. I am really pained at her frequent anti Hindu/ anti national approach. May be by doing so she will get some votes from Muslims that will keep her in power for some time and that is what she seems to be concerned about. But madam, what if Hindus unite like they did in UP? That day you will be thrown out of power and spend rest of your life like in a confused state like mayawati, akhilesh and Rahul.
    Please don’t test the patience of law abiding Hindus.

    Shame on mamata, মহিলারাই ধংসের কারন ।

  • March 16, 2017 at 11:07 am

    The center should stop her diktat it is not too far she will be taught a lesson like UP election

  • March 23, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    Mamata is doing this because the bengali Hindus of Kolkata are looking away and allowing her to. Bengali Hindus were murdered in thousands by Punjabi and bihari Muslims in 1971. The genocide of bengali Hindus was as bad as the genocide of Jews. What’s the difference? The difference is that the Jews united after the Holocaust, and are now so strong that nobody can harm them. The bengali Hindus, on the other hand, are still in denial about the Islamic Holocaust they faced. Not only that, their vote hungry leaders are once again pandering to fanatical Muslims, exposing the state’s Hindu population to another genocide, very soon.

    Mamta must be removed from power as soon as possible in West Bengal. RSS must work for the Hindu community in totality including all the castes cutting across including Dalits and scheduled tribes. Pro Hindu culture and ancient vedas education where there was no place for castes must be taught to people and the lost pride of Hindu culture and religion must be revived and this education must reach to the last person of Indian Hindu person. Then only Hindu culture and religion can be saved from the poaching vultures of islamists and christianity. RSS and Hindu organisations along with Hindu people must work tirelessly to upscale the living standards of poor Hindus and genuinely address their grievances and education problems. If this can be done, Hindus will gain their lost glory and no power in earth can erase them because Hindus are by nature liberal, scientific thinkers and seculars.
