The recent incident in West Bengal has sparked widespread condemnation and political uproar after a video went viral showing a brutal assault on a couple, allegedly orchestrated by Tajmul, a local leader associated to Trinamool Congress (TMC) in Chopra, Uttar Dinajpur district. The assault reportedly followed a decree from a kangaroo court, highlighting the dangerous trend of extrajudicial punishments in certain rural areas.

The West Bengal Police swiftly responded by registering a case and apprehending Tajmul. However, reactions from local TMC leaders, such as MLA Hamidul Rahaman, have been controversial. Rahaman condemned the incident but made troubling remarks about the woman’s behavior, invoking a “Muslim rashtra” and suggesting adherence to unspecified codes of justice. These comments have fueled accusations from opposition parties, including the BJP, Congress, and CPI(M), who criticized the Mamata Banerjee government for failing to maintain law and order and allowing such vigilante justice to prevail.

The BJP, through its IT Cell head Amit Malviya, condemned the incident as a manifestation of lawlessness under Mamata Banerjee’s rule, citing previous controversies involving TMC leaders like Sheikh Shahjahan. Malviya’s statement and subsequent social media posts underscored a broader narrative of deteriorating governance and selective justice in West Bengal.

In response to the outcry, the Islampur Police district clarified their actions and assured the public of ongoing investigations, emphasizing that the victims are under police protection. However, skepticism remains high regarding the effectiveness of these assurances amidst allegations of political patronage and the misuse of power.

Overall, the incident has become a focal point of political debate, highlighting issues of gender violence, extrajudicial actions, and governance in West Bengal. It serves as a stark reminder of the challenges facing the state’s administration in ensuring rule of law and protecting citizens from arbitrary acts of violence and intimidation.
