In a minority-dominated village in West Bengal’s Murshidabad district, listening to music, playing carom, watching television and purchasing lottery are now activities which have been banned by a fatwa issued by the heads of the Adwaita Nagar village, which has a population of around 12,000 and is located along the Bengal-Jharkhand border area in Raghunathganj sub-division. The brazen diktat which has been issued also comes along with a range of penalties for those who are found flouting the fatwa. The ruling Trinamool Congress dominated panchayat chief, meanwhile, has no qualms with a minority-committee trampling upon the freedoms of people, and has instead stated that there is nothing wrong about the ‘welcome’ move.
The anti-democratic diktat was issued on August 9 under the banner of a ‘social reforms committee’, reported the New Indian Express. Posters listing the banned activities were put up in every corner of the villages warning the local people of severe consequences if they were found violating the fatwa. What is more shocking is the fact that the said committee has also provisioned a scheme of rewarding ‘informants’, who bring to notice the activities of such people who disobey the order. Depending on the nature of the offence, the informant will be rewarded anywhere between Rs. 200 to 1000.
“We decided to impose a ban on a series of activities to stop the young generation from adopting methods which will lead to their moral and cultural degradation. We cannot allow them to listen to music and watch movies and serials which do not fit our religious culture,” said Azharul Sheikh, the secretary of the Adwaita Nagar Social Reforms Committee.
The fatwa mandates a Rs 1,000 fine if anyone is found watching television and using mobile phones or computers for the purpose of listening to music. “If anyone is caught playing carom, he will have to pay Rs 500 and in case of purchasing lottery, the penalty amount will be Rs 2,000,” said Azharul. An exorbitant penalty of Rs. 7000 will be levied on those found selling alcohol, and they will also be made to do 10 sit-ups while holding their ears. The fatwa also stated that the offender’s head would he shaved before being paraded around the village.
The local Trinamool Congress-dominated Vasaipaikar panchayat chief, Abdur Rauf found nothing wrong in the fatwa. “Banning liquor is a good decision. Besides, I welcome the decision to ban carom and songs using mobile phones because the youths are getting addicted to it,” he stated. This goes on to show how the Trinamool Congress in West Bengal, only to save its vote bank and not to alienate them, is allegedly lying prostrate before a joke of a ‘committee’, which is brazenly trampling upon the freedom of Indians, just around the time the country celebrated its 74th Independence Day.
Oh, secular incredible India. Why fatwas are not issued in favour of muslim actors nd actresses who flaunt rules of their religion.
So that the actors can get money from hindus to be used against them for further actions. I.e. jihad.

Next shariya law
Chop off the ears for listening to music
Chop off the hands for using mobile phone
This is beyond imagination. Pure Taliban rules are prevailing in parts of West Bengal ?!? It’s not believable at all.
Simply comments are of no use.
If you think, you are a true Indian, stand against openly, Get yourselves United, and kill this fatwagiri which is a straight and direct approach of moving against the law and order of the land. Shame on judiciary. And what authority they have to take this action and issue such orders ?
Yes, any one issuing fatwa which is against basic freedom enshrined in our Constitution should be punished.
Yes you are correct.
And still we Bengalis are mum about the incident! We ‘re exaggerating our useless values of secularism to an extreme!
Days not far when West Bengal would be renamed Waste Bengal
al bengal khilafat, leader is momota begum
Y it is a raised again?
Any issue happened?
Since it’s a population of 12,000, let 13,000 non Muslims move in and reverse this nonsense fatwa.
Bengali ppl have done blunder by not choosing BJP. Now they will price also.
Jaisi karni waisi bharni.
Jai Shri Ram
Stop immediately the fatwa issued. Let legal bodies intervene to impose Indian law in this regard
This is the beginning of the end for West Bengal to become an independent Islamic state with Mamta as it’s PM unless some huge uprising by Nationalist Hindus take place. Wake up call for secularists Indians.
Very true. Legal bodies , justice system should intervene and reverse it permanently to safegauard in the national interest.
Yar these all are going wrong side why the
Bangali people aren’t choosen the bjp
Yar bjp is the party who works for Hindus
In India there are no one can think about
The Hindu people so I will say vote for our best party
When hindus will wake up . These converts once hindus destroying own race and nations . Same way middle east and africa now on death bed all due to local converts . These converts has no dna of arabs . Its duty of the nation to reform them .
It’s high time for the uniform civil code.
It very sad to know that ban on playing carom n listening of music implied on people, if govt.of west bengal endorse this fatwa then truly n surely our constitution is in danger …authorities should dissolve that village committee immediately.
Where r librandos and seculars now halkats they object on hindus
now speak if we do not unite bangal will go wake up
Shame on Mamta didi and shame on Modi, one is doing un parliamentary and un constitutional activities in the country and other is silent observer with majority in the center. Modi is closing his eyes and pushing India to the destruction, at least he can establish the law to control the population of the country, research shows that the country will be Islamic by 2050 in terms of population , now one village by 2050 ……, shame on Modi rather than Mamta.
Horrendous! Fragmentation of Hindus on political philosophy, caste,color,region etc are fully taken advantage of by certain Muslims of Jihadi disposition,moreover when the protectors are like Mamta Ji.Nation was bifurcated on religious considerations once.Their can be no further divide. Hindus mostly voted for BJP but feel violated by the same party.Hindus should avoid thinking any govt will come to their rescue in case of an assault.
We are Bengali and feel our self proud to be secular which was thought to us by Left in their time but forget the sacrifices of Dr. Shyama Prasad to create West Bengal for Hindus. Now present Govt is totally depends on minority Vote and Vote bank from women from villages where maximum does not have capacity to think long term. We will expect many more village will have the same rules. CM does not have shame on this. Every Indian condemn on this and DM ßhould take strong action against this in social elements.
All the vote bank activity of TMC support this people’s. Shame on both.
West Bengal situations is very dangerous for kill of Hindusiam. TCM suprimo Mahzbin Bano, don’t want to procted Hindusiam family. She want to more Pakistan in west Bengal. Be strong keep highpowerful arms. Don’t affarid our secular constitution. Because no power of police man. They totally corrupt. Jai Hind, vande Maa Taram. Hindusiam jindabad
The TMC has a vested interest in keeping Muslims Backward and conservative so that such an ignorant community always votes for it — this is policy of all so called SECULAR political parties but the question is that such an ignorant community getting fattened on Indian taxpayers money will then spread all its evils to the rest of the country .
They will breed like rabbits, their madrasas which are citadels of medievalism will spread in the country, their ghettos will spread and with it dirty living practises, unhealthy people and overall fanaticism will spread in the country .
We must prevent is ASAP by taking the courts in consideration and making such issues rampant in social media .
