A mass marriage of 133 tribal couples in a village near Malda district of West Bengal was "attacked by the henchmen of Jharkhand Disom party with bows, arrows and sharp weapons injuring the participants and destroying valuables," claims the VHP. It added, the Bengal police which was present at the spot remained "mute spectators". Malda in Bengal to close to the border of Jharkhand.

VHP Bengal said that the organisation is running thousands of Sewa Karyas (service projects) in the field of health, education, women empowerment, skill & village development for the welfare of our tribal brethren. VHP always remains at forefront to protect the tribal culture & traditions which is persistently being attacked by the Christian missionaries and communists, alleged Achchutanand.

VHP further says that the life struggle & sacrifice of Bhagwan Shri Birsa Munda ji is the burning example of the tribal society’s fight against the missionaries.


As part of VHP's regular service projects in SC/ST & tribal belts, the mass wedding ceremony for poor couples was organised by the organisation with purely tribal social rituals in a Pandal clearly reflecting the great tribal culture & traditions.

Despite having the due permission from the authorities and 100+ policeman being present at the venue, the ceremony was attacked by the henchmen of Jharkhand Dishom party with bows, arrows and sharp weapons injuring the participants and destroying valuables belonging to the poor couples, informed the VHP. The Mamata government's police stood as mute spectators which has raised several questions, says the VHP press release.

The VHP press release alleges that it seems the attack happened due to the complicity & anti-Hindu attitude of the ruling political party in West Bengal. The role of Christian Missionaries & communists in this act of vandalism and provocation also needs to be investigated says VHP. An FIR has been lodged by the VHP which has demanded immediate arrests of the culprits failing which it will be forced to carry out a State wide protest to expose them & save our tribal brethren warns the VHP.
