"Jini laey moasi, sey kandi nah thia" – it is a Sindhi proverb meaning "You have died for them, but they won’t bother to attend your funeral".

This was exactly the story of Jogendra Nath Mandal, a dalit leader in Pakistan.

Details in the #Thread below.

#NeemBhimUnityBusted
His life & political career is an eye opener case study for those who talk about ‘Neem Bhim Ek Sath’ or Muslim-Dalit unity.

Jogendra Nath Mandal -
- born in 1904 in Namasudra community, in Barisal district (Bangladesh)
- very influential leader from dalit community
2/n
- supported Muslim league in their demand for partition
- convinced dalit community of East Bengal (Sylhet)) to join Pakistan
- one of the leading founding fathers of Pakistan and served as country’s first minister of law & labour
- pioneer of so called ‘Muslim-Dalit Unity’
3/n
Even though he supported Muslim League with his blood, sweat and tears, soon after Pakistan came into being -
- his loyalty was questioned
- was not given access to cabinet documents even though he was a minister
- given every indication that Hindus are no longer welcomed

4/n
It was too much for Mandal. His pride was hurt.

His support for Muslim League, his sacrifices for Pakistan and his love for Muslims all were blatantly discredit once Muslims came to power.

He quit as minister & came back to Calcutta to spend rest of his life in oblivion.
5/n
In Pakistan, there still exist many Jogendras who have exhausted their energies in vain to prove that they are as patriotic as everyone else.

Every day their daughters are getting picked up, every day large chunk of them are getting vanished.
6/n
👉At the time of partition the Hindu population of Pakistan was 14% which is now under 2%
👉In 1941 Hindu formed around 30% of the population of present day Bangladesh which is currently under 8%

Demographic data proves how unsafe minorities are in Islamic country.
7/n
After seeing failure of his lifelong mission to uplift the backward Hindus in East Bengal in Muslim dominated Pakistan, he wrote heart wrenching resignation which is enough proof to understand situation of dalits when Muslims are in majority.

Let us have a look at it 👇

8/n
Call for 'The Direct Action Day' by the Muslim League on 16/Aug 1946 resulted in holocaust of Hindus in Bengal. Still I issued an appeal to the Scheduled Caste people to keep themselves aloof from the bloody feud. Because of me Namahsudras gave up the idea of retaliation

9/n
In 'Noakhali Riot' Hindus including Scheduled Castes were killed & hundreds were converted to Islam. Hindu women were raped and abducted. The terrible sufferings of Hindus overwhelmed me with grief, but still I continued the policy of co-operation with the Muslim League.
10/n
Neither you not Mr. Nurul Amin had any intention to take any Scheduled Caste Minister in the East Bengal Cabinet. The Scheduled Castes have not received a fair deal in any matter. Barbarous atrocities were perpetrated by the police on frivolous grounds on them.
11/n
In a Digharkul village near Gopalganj, brutal atrocities were committed on the local Namahsudras on a false complaint by Muslims
👉without making any enquiry SHO accepted the complaint as true and sent armed police to the spot to punish the Namahsudras
12/n
👉the armed police came & the local Muslims also joined them
👉they not only raided houses of the Namahsudras but mercilessly beat both men and women
👉destroyed properties and took away valuables
👉the merciless beating of a pregnant women resulted in abortion on the spot
13/n
Atrocities by police & military on Hindus at Habibgarh (Sylhet):
👉innocent men & women were brutally tortured
👉The military not only oppressed & took away stuff forcibly, but also forced Hindus to send their women-folk at night to the camp to satisfy the carnal desires
14/n
On December 20, 1949 in Kalshira, Khulna district a contingent of military and armed police -
👉beat mercilessly the innocent Hindus of the entire village
👉encouraged the neighbouring Muslims to take away their properties
👉many were killed or were forcibly converted
15/n
👉house-hold deities were broken & places of worship desecrated
👉Several women were raped by the police, military and local Muslims
16/n
In Feb 1950, violent speeches against the Hindus were delivered by several speakers, including officials to incite Dacca and East Bengal riots
👉Arson, looting of Hindu shops & houses and killing of Hindus wherever they were found, commenced in full swing
17/n
👉Jewellery shops belonging to the Hindus were looted in the presence of police officers
👉killing of hundreds of innocent Hindus in trains, on railway lines between Dacca and Narayanganj, and Dacca and Chittagong
18/n
👉In Muladi village I found skeletons of dead bodies - dogs and vultures eating corpses on he river-side
👉after the whole-scale killing of all adult males, all the young girls were distributed among the ringleaders of the Muslim miscreants
19/n
Total casualties of Dacca and East Bengal riot were in the range of 10s of thousands.

The lamentation of women and children who had lost their all including near and dear ones melted my heart. I only asked myself "What was coming to Pakistan in the name of Islam."
20/n
The abduction & rape of Hindu girls have been reduced to a certain extent due to the fact that there is no Caste Hindu girl b/w the ages of 12 & 30 living in East Bengal at present.

Few girls who live in rural areas with their parents are not even spared by Muslim goons.
21/n
The boycott by the Muslims of Hindu -
👉lawyers
👉medical practitioners
👉shop-keepers, traders and merchants
has compelled Hindus to migrate to West Bengal

👉capture of houses & non-payment of any rent to Hindu landlords
22/n
The West Punjab had after partition about a lakh of Scheduled Castes people. It may be noted that a large number of them were converted to Islam.

Hindus of Pakistan have to all intents and purposes been rendered "Stateless" in their own houses.
23/n
This thread should be an adequate evidence of the threat so called 'Muslim-Dalit Unity' poses to Dalits and a larger Hindu community:
- Rape Jihad
- Property jihad
- Economical jihad
- Muder jihad
- Train Jihad
- Education Jihad
- Loot & arson jihad
- Conversion jihad

24/n
Upper caste or lower caste, every Hindu is part of same Sanatan soul and we must fight against the forces who want to divide us.

Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
