The Noakhali 1946 Hindu Genocide

Greater, undivided India has known many holocausts in its history. (Wiki) It is estimated that overall the victims of Islamic massacres amount to over 100 million souls. (Source) The Noakhali riots (that is how they start) was a series of massacres perpetrated in October–November 1946, called "Direct Action" by the Muslim League. (Wiki)

This video is a dedication to all victims of the Hindu Holocaust in Noakhali brought about by the "Direct Action" of the Muslim League in 1946.
“Worst of all was the plight of women. Several of them had to watch their husbands being murdered and then be forcibly converted and married to some of those responsible for their death. Those women had a dead look. It was not despair, nothing so active as that. It was blackness…….the eating of beef and declaration of allegiance to Islam has been forced upon many thousands of as the price of their lives”
This is what Miss Muriel Leister, member of a relief committee sent to Noakhali wrote on 6th November, 1946, (V.V. Nagarkar – Genesis – p. 446). The words have an eerie similarity to the outburst of Annie Beasant after the Moplah riots but belong to an entirely different holocaust. These riots had started about a month earlier in Muslim dominated twin districts of Noakhali and Tipperah. Since the Muslim League government was architect of the riots, news was suppressed for as long as possible. Amrita Bazar Patrika on 23/10/46 reported,
“For the 13th day today, about 120 villages in Ramganj, Lakshmipur, Raipur, Begumganj and Senbag thanas (police stations) in Noakhali district with a Hindu population of 90,000 and nearby 70,000 villagers in Chandpur and Faridganj thanas in Tippera (Comilla) district remained besieged by hooligans. Death stares the people of these areas in their face and immediate rushing of supply to these areas with the help of military, who alone could do it, would save the lives of these people, most of whom have been without food for the last few days.”
The riots had started on 10/10/1946, but the ML government acknowledged the fact only on 15/10/1946, a criminal delay of five days in which thousands of lives could have been saved and women could have been saved from being raped by gangs. Today, after six decades the present secular governments have gone even further. The deganga riots have gone totally unreported in main stream media. On 16/10/1946, The Statesman reported:
“In an area of about 200 sq miles the inhabitants surrounded by riotous mobs, are being massacred, their houses being burnt, their womenfolk being forcibly carried away and thousands being subjected to forcible conversion. Thousands of hooligans attacked the villages, compelled them (Hindus) to slaughter their cattle and eat. All places of worship in affected villages have been desecrated. The District Magistrate and the Police Superintendent of Noakhali took no step to prevent it.”
