“Today we met Governor K N Tripathi and apprised him of the ground level situation in the state. There is a rapid rise of fundamentalism and anti-national forces in the state,” RSS leader Jishnu Basu told reporters after the meeting.

“All this is happening because the state government has decided to turn blind eye to the entire situation for the sake of vote bank,” he said.

“We have decided to write to the Union Home Ministry and apprise them about the grave situation in Bengal. The rise of communal and fundamental forces is a matter of grave concern,” Basu said.

He alleged the state government has started a politics of appeasement in the state ignoring the religious sentiments of others.

Threatening to launch a bigger campaign on the issue, Basu said, “we have also decided to wait for few more days to see whether the state government takes any action or not”.

“If the state government doesn’t take any action we will launch a massive campaign throughout the state,” the RSS leader said.

          My Brothers stay in Kharagpur . What happened was a dalit boy in a bike accident injured a Muslim girl and maybe unfortunately she ped away . Then the muslim community killed the boy as if it was some community issue and then on Dushhera the clash began. Shops were razed . We need the WB government to take action . I hate the thing that is happening .

            West Bengal is the tent of Muslim fundamentalism . Radicals come in from bangladesh and wreak havoc here. I am from Kolkata . I know the horrible things that happen around the place. Places like Khidderpore and Park Circus are very dangerous . Most of the muslims are very good . The old ones are very good and warm . It's the new breed that is coming from somewhere that needs to be dealt with
