India's saffron brigade led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has allegedly started a leaflet campaign against Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress (TMC) government in West Bengal.
The leaflets, circulated in English and Hindi by a group of people across New Delhi's metro rail stations, describe the "mushrooming of jihadi activities" in West Bengal.
The group, calling itself HUMEK, is reportedly affiliated to the saffron brigade.
Quoting police records, the leaflets say West Bengal witnessed 106 riots in 2013, an increase of 300 per cent over the 2010 figure.
Titled Bengal Burning: Untold Story of Hindu Prosecution, the leaflets also point to the involvement of a TMC Member of Parliament with Muslim terror groups.
"Ahmed Hassan Imran, TMC Rajya Sabha MP, channelled Saradha scam money to Jamaat-E-Islami (JEI) Bangladesh to topple the government there. Previously, he (Imran) led Students' Islamic Movement of India in Bengal," the leaflets said.
The leaflets dug into the National Investigation Agency's charge-sheet against 21 people in connection with the Burdwan bomb blasts.
"IED (improvised explosive device) factory in Burdwan was used to supply bombs to Bangladesh, and terror networks in Assam, UP, Jharkhand? investigations uncovered 58 terror modules operating in West Bengal, with young men and women being indoctrinated in Madarssas run by JMB (Jamat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh) operatives," the leaflets said.
In recent past, Kolkata has seen large rallies being organised by JEI-Hind and other Indian Muslim organizations in support of war criminals on trial in Bangladesh.
TMC parliamentarian Sishir Adhikary said the leaflets were being circulated as part of propaganda by BJP and its Sangh Parivar affiliates.
"The state government in West Bengal is running smoothly? they (BJP) just want to divert the attention of the people of the state with false propaganda," said Adhikary.    ?
