A global media synopsis on the great works of Tapan Kr. Ghosh – Founder of Hindu Samhati​

Tapan Kr. Ghosh , President and founder of Hindu Samhati,  has spent his lifetime rescuing daughters in West Bengal , India who have been kidnapped, raped, converted and sold. Recently he saved a 14 yr old minor daughter called Tuktuki Mondal kidnapped by Islamic fundamentalists and reunited her with her parents. Her story made international headlines. 
However Tuktuki’s case also  helped to highlight the cause of 20,000 + daughters getting kidnapped, raped, converted and trafficked every year. According to United Nations in 2010  alone 28,000 children and women were kidnapped from West Bengal. To bring to the world’s attention the cause of West Bengal’s missing children , Tapan Ghosh, Founder and President of Hindu Samhati is coming to US. It was Hindu Samhati which helped to give shelter to Tuktuki’s parents and fight for her release. He will be in US from 10th to 27th September. Apart from saving Tuktuki , Sri Tapan Ghosh and Hindu Samhati have helped to save many other daughters in similar circumstances in the last 8 years since the formation of Hindu Samhati.  
Also Hindu Samhati volunteers show tremendous courage on ground to report any violation of Hindu Human Rights in West Bengal and in districts where Hindus have already become minorities. They are always the first responders whenever any organized attacks on the Hindu community gets reported. In the last 4 years 34 such incidents have been reported. They serve the suffering people, give them moral and material support to stay strong. In the process they show tremendous courage at the risk of their lives and help to preserve the Hindu Civilization in West Bengal . Hindu Samhati led by Tapan da, works 365 days with these suffering communities,in a non-political way but often without support and despite extreme hindrance from the administration. 
Tapan during his entire life has served the Hindus throughout India. However he has brought to this generation a very powerful message of Global Hindu Unity and Global Dharmic Activism coupled with Selfless Service. As a monk, following Swami Vivekananda beliefs , he has personally lived that life through examples. He has often said that the pain of a  suffering Hindu in remote non-discript village has to be felt by Hindus in America and elsewhere globally. Hindu Samhati’s goal is to take the voice of the suffering Hindus , particularly the havenots, to the Empowered Hindus Worldwide and the Global Audience  and help them get relief from the suffering. Achieving Global Dharmic Unity and through Selfless Service for the community he believes can solve much of the problems that  threatens the Hindus today. By Uniting large sections of the Hindu society in Bengal and Assam , Hindu Samhati led by Tapan da has given Global Dharmic Activism a new sense of hope and a strategy that now can be scaled up to help preserve the Hindu civilization in Bharat and save vital Hindu lives. 
Tapan da has also been a very strong proponent of gender equality and the rights of women too. Islamic Fundamentalism world over is a war on women and therefore empowering women, making them feel that they are not alone in this fight has been one of the goals of Hindu Samhati and Tapan da’s effort. In this regard , Hindu Samhati has a dedicated women’s team to spearhead the cause of Hindu women on ground.


Hindu Samhati’s  Assam Effort 
Hindu Samhati volunteers went to Assam and campaigned hard to bring the plight of the Hindus there to the Global Stage. Almost 10 million Hindus were affected and were being sent to detention camps, deported to Bangladesh to be converted or killed there. It resulted in the central Government bringing a notification  saying no Hindus in Assam need to go back to Bangladesh , all those who came before Dec, 2014

Do you remember Panchagram?http://hindusamhati.net/news/details/1559
There 30 houses of poor Hindus have been looted and totally gutted by the Muslim Fundamentalists on 24 June. After that destruction, many families from Barpara and adjacent Baganipara already migrated from the village. Many other Hindu families are in process. These people feel that nobody is there to help them if they are attacked by the goons of powerful don Selim Laskar. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/…/articleshow/2557479.cms…. [ Police believe Khora Badshah (hooch killer of 173 people) was the frontman of dreaded South 24-Parganas criminal Selim Laskar, who was earlier arrested by CID from Geokhali.http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/…/articlesh…/11249359.cms?]
We are extremely disturbed for the plight and low morale of the Hindus of this area. Hence, to raise there morale, we arranged some relief material distribution in the devastated Barpara of Panchagram. 
Today, Hindu Samhati team led by Sujit Maity along with Sundar Gopal Das, Rajkumar Sardar & Toton Ojha went there distribute relief materials. In Barpara relief materials have been distributed among 110 families. Each packet contained rice, dal, sugar, potato, mustard oil & one sharee. 
Kolkata Shree Salasar Bhaktvrinda cooperated in this program.

HINDU SAMHATI Siliguri Branch started its journey in the period of Maha Sashthi during sacred Navaratra. Report from Siliguri :
Today we Hindu Samhati Siliguri unit set off our journey with the spirit of selfless service that our Sanatana Dharma teaches us. Today we have successfully distributed 160 new cloths amongst the poor adivashi (tribal) people at Joypur Tea Estate in Jalpaiguri. Unlike some other faith groups we have distributed without any kind of religious discrimination. We also talked with local Munda people who, despite their severe poverty, still staunch followers of Sanatan Dharma and we have promised them along with other Nepali, Rajbanshi and Bengali Hindus to provide them with winter cloths and free medical assistance. Our respected teacher Prasanta Paul today mentioned the local problems related to the local poor Hindus in his speech and our another speaker Bhaskar Dey raised serious issues like religious conversions by missionaries and preservation of their indigenous culture. We received very good response from Adivashi people.

Hindu Samhati’s Tapan Kumar Ghosh: A Lifelong Journey Full Of Struggle For The Hindus 
Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh is the founder of Hindu Samhati, a new Hindu grassroots organisation that has created a much needed resistance in West Bengal against a wave of Islamic encroachment and aggression that we are all aware of. 
Since the dark days of the Emergency, Sri Tapan Kumar Ghosh has been a full-time Hindu activist, community organizer and human rights campaigner for the past 36 years.
Sri Ghosh has been a RSS Swayamsevak from the early age of 13 and has been a Pracharak since 1976. He trained under the eminent personalities of Sri Guruji Golwalkar and Sri Bhaurao-ji Deoras.
In 1975, Sri Ghosh had plunged into the Satyagraha (led by Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan) against the draconian Emergency. He courted civil arrest and was imprisoned for 3 months in Alipore Presidency Jail in Kolkata.
As Pracharak, Sri Ghosh was assigned as Burdwan District Organiser of RSS from 1976 to 1981. During this period, for the first time he directly saw the atrocities of the Islamic fundamentalists upon Hindus in rural Bengal. His first struggle against might, clout and criminality started in the villages of Purbasthali P.S. of Burdwan dist. Finally Hindus won the battle. Criminality of Muslim fundamentalists had bow down their head. In fact, this struggle and victory formed the basis of BJP’s popularity in Purbasthali area.
For 6 months he was in charge of Bankura district, and for one year he was in charge of South 24 Parganas district. Then in the end of 1982, Sri Ghosh was given responsibility of West Bengal State Organising Secretary of ABVP, the premier student organization of Bharat. Those were the tumultuous days of Assam Movement. Sri Ghosh successfully coordinated between Assam and rest of Bharat. One milestone of the movement was a “National Covention on Infiltration” on 12-13 February in Kolkata attended by Justice H. R. Khanna, Ram Jethmalani, Prafulla Mahanta, Bal Apte and others.
In July 1986, Sri Ghosh returned back to RSS (after about a 12 year stint in ABVP), and was given twin responsibilities of Vibhag Pracharak (of 2 districts: Howrah and Hooghly) and Prant Prachar Pramukh. 
After a successful effort to close a large cattle-slaughterhouse in Howrah, he was given the responsibility to 24 Parganas as Vibhag Pracharak. This Vibhag consists of 2 districts viz. North 24 Parganas and South 24 Parganas. 
In Basanti block in South 24 Parganas District, he led the direct resistance action in Sonakhali which was initially triggered by the deaths of 4 Hindu activists. Sri Ashok Singhal ji personally visited the district to commend the Hindu resistance. 
Sri.Ghosh was requested to go to Delhi in July 2001, with the new responsibility of North Zonal-in-charge of the VHP youth wing (Bajrang Dal). He was in-charge of 5 states: Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir.
Sri Tapan Ghosh served as Bajrang Dal’s North Zonal head (Indraprastha Kshetra Samyojak) for 4 years until July 2005.
In 2005, the youth wing started a unique program in Poonch district of Jammu & Kashmir province. He was chief-in-charge of that program. Its name is “Budha Amarnath Yatra”. 
Poonch is a district in Hindu-majority Jammu region of the Muslim-majority J & K state. But in Poonch district, the Hindus and Sikhs constitute only 8 percent of the population. Hindu emigration from Poonch district was going on steadily, further depleting the Hindu population. Poonch district was on the verge of becoming Hindu-less. After a lot of touring and surveying in Poonch, the Bajrang Dal youth volunteers discovered an almost abandoned but ancient temple named “Budha Amarnath temple”. They started a 7-day yatra, a distance of 250 kms. The response was unbelievable. The whole town came to the ground every evening to welcome the yatris. Within 2 years, the town got a new look. New shops, business centers, hotels opened. The traditional ‘Dasnami Akhada’, the base camp of the Yatra, built a large hall where seven hundred people can sleep. Indian Army helped tremendously to protect the yatra, as if they were eagerly waiting for it. Within 3 years, the Yatra became extremely popular to the local people of Rajouri and Poonch districts. People started thronging the temple throughout the year. The persons who left Poonch for the fear of Muslim militants, started to come back. Further migration almost stopped. After a long time, ‘Vande Mataram’ filled the air again. Every person of Poonch town, child to old, recognised Sri Tapan Ghosh due to this yatra.
In July 2005, Sri Tapan Ghosh was again transferred to Kolkata with the responsibility of Eastern Zonal-in-charge of the youth wing. This time his responsibility was of West Bengal, Sikkim and 7 North-Eastern states including Assam. 
Again the struggle continued. The first battle was in Sandeshkhali, a notorious den of Muslim fundamentalists and criminals of North 24 Parganas district. 16 Hindu workers (including one housewife) were severely beaten up and injured. Police and administration were openly on the side of the Muslim Fundamentalists. They arrested 15 injured Hindu youths and slapped false cases on them. They had to spend one month in jail. 
The situation in Bengal and North Eastern states along with Bangladesh is critical and is of paramount importance, strategically. To resist this catastrophe more aggressively and effectively, and create a better regional support structure within the Hindus in Bengal, Sri Tapan Ghosh formed “Hindu Samhati” (meaning: “Hindu Solidarity”) on 14th February 2007. Its aim is to inspire and empower Hindu youths to fight against any injustice. 
In the past 8 years, Hindu Samhati has created a solid force of 80,000 young women and men who are leading and valiantly resisting the growing Islamization of West Bengal.
