PRESS CONFERENCE- Facts of ‘police raid ” on Nazrul Islam’s book #Kolkata #censorship


What's Mamata's communal harmony?

Mamata Banerjee has done it again, this time against an IPS officer. The cop, Nazrul Islam, published a book titled Mushalmander Ki Karaniya (What Muslims Should Do) where he spoke about the alleged plight of the Muslims in West Bengal and how the Trinamool Congress-led state government was resorting to double standards in the name of ‘improving’ their condition.

A 102-page book written by senior police official Nazrul Islam seems to have ruffled a few feathers in the state administration. The police, on Friday, allegedly raided the College Street shop of Mitra Ghosh, the publisher of the book — Musalman der Koroniyo — written by the senior IPS officer and additional director general of police (training).

The present owner of the publishing house Sabitendranath Roy alleged that a huge force of police reached the College Street premises of his shop, locked the sale counters and searched for the book. He also complained that police had asked him to discontinue its circulation a day before.

The book was released a week back and got good response. On Thursday night, an 80-year-old Roy received a call from the deputy commissioner of police (enforcement branch) asking him to stop selling the book.In the book, Nazrul has advocated the need for secular education and criticized the state government for not doing much to help spread education among the Muslims. “Though a lot has been said about the new government being an agent of change, nothing much has changed,” Nazrul said in the book. He has criticized the leaders in the new government for attending Iftaarparties without keeping the mandatory daytime fast. “The words inshallah and khuda hafiz cannot be said in the same sentence, but our leaders are doing so, without knowing that they are actually hurting Islam,” the book reads.The police had no search warrant with them. We had already stopped the book’s circulation and removed the copies from our College Street shop. We told them that the complimentary copies would be sent to them soon,” said Indrani Roy, director of Mitra Ghosh.
