    Kashmir event 'banned' at prestigious Calcutta Club due to Kolkata Police pressure
    An event titled The saga of Balochistan and Kashmir has been denied permission by the reputed Calcutta Club due to alleged pressure from the West Bengal state administration and the Kolkata Police.

    An event titled "The saga of Balochistan and Kashmir" has been denied permission by the reputed Calcutta Club due to alleged pressure from the West Bengal state administration and the Kolkata Police.

    The event which was scheduled for January 7 evening at the Calcutta Club was scrapped at the last moment by the club authorities citing "unavoidable circumstances" and stating that being a private social club they would like to ensure "cordial atmosphere" at the institution.

    ORGANISERS PRESSURISED BY COPS TO DENY PERMISSION

    According to Swadhikar Bangla Foundation, the organisers of the event, the club authorities were pressurised by the Kolkata Police to deny permission for the event as it involves speakers who are known for their "anti-Pakistan" rhetoric.

    The organisers claim that the Calcutta Club authorities were called for a meeting at Lal Bazar, the headquarters of Kolkata Police where they were told not to allow the program because it may hurt the sentiments of a particular community and result in a law and order situation.

    "We were told by the club's CEO that they were called to Lal Bazar where they met senior police officers who pressurised them to drop the event. They were told that one of the speakers at the event was famous for his anti-Pakistan rhetoric which might create law and order situation and stoke communal disharmony in the state," claimed Colonel (retd) Diptangshu Chaudhury, founder of Swadhikar Bangla Foundation.

    PAKISTANI-CANADIAN AUTHOR CRITICISES MAMATA GOVERNMENT

    Speakers like Pakistani-Canadian author Dr. Tarek Fatah, Kashmir activist Sushil Pandit, retired Army officer, Major General GD Bakshi and Baloch activist Brahamdagh Bugti were supposed to take part in the event. Criticising the West Bengal government for the ban on the event, author Tarek Fatah wrote on Twitter, "Afraid of Islamists, Mamata government forces cancellation of Tarik Fatah's talk on Balochistan."

    Infact, the club authorities forced the organisers to drop the "Kashmir" word from the poster of the event stating it may fuel unrest in the state. Subsequently, "Kashmir" was dropped from the poster by the organisers unordered to somehow continue with the event.

    On their part, the Kolkata Police just stated that the club authorities had informed them that the event had been cancelled. "The organisers had sent a letter after which we had sought for a formal submission about the event involving international guests. They first submitted the request and on the next day sent a letter informing us that the event was cancelled," said a top Kolkata Police official.

    When India Today contacted the CEO of Calcutta Club Ranjit Dutta, he refused to speak on the matter.

    Is this India or Pakistan?
    We can't discuss Anti-Pakistan issues in West Bengal?
    Too Much pandering of jihadis by Mamata didi.
    There are media reports of Rohingya Muslims being moved into Jammu to alter the Demography and make Hindus in Jammu become minorities like Kashmiri Pandits,what's going on? is GOI taking a look at these matters?

    Mamta Banerjee's desperation is understandable.

    Look's like Nitish had enough of Jungle Raj 2 in Bihar,with lalu gang calling the shots, Being associated with Lalu gang is giving him a bad image and loss of his face in public, Expect him to slowly slide towards NDA in future.

    This is highly unacceptable, this showing how weak community we are.
    Leaders like Mamata are dangerous to the nation.

    What the hell! The same organisers and the state police would have happily assisted in an event on the AFSPA or the Indian army's atrocities in Kashmir. Now we can't criticise Pakistan in Indian territory. Unacceptable!!

    Things are worsening in Bengal and didi must go. It's a must to save Indian national interests in Bengal.
