हामीहरु रोहिङ्या होइनौं,हामी सबैजना कोलकाता सोनापुरको वासिन्दा हौ अनि खाटी भारतीय हौ

2:32 PM

कालेबुङ,२८/०४/२०१८,

केही दिन अघि सोसियल मिडियामा भाइरल बनेको भिडिया जहाँ कालेबुङको थाना डाँडा अघि एक हुल मुस्लिम समुदायका युवकहरु वाहनबाट उत्रिएको देखाइएको थियो।

त्यहीँ भिडियोमा देखिएको एक सदस्य शेख शहनशाहले पत्रकारहरु लाई जानकारी दिदै भने हामी रोहिङ्या हैनौ,हामी खाटी भारतीय हौं।अनि हामी सित मतदाता परिचयपत्र देखि लिएर अन्य सम्पुर्ण आवश्यक परिचयपत्रहरु छ्।हामी कोलकाताको सोनापुरको वासिन्दा हौं।अनि हामी १५ जनाको समुह कालेबुङमा एक धार्मिक कार्यक्रम लिएर आएका हौं।

भिडियोमा हामीलाई रोहिङ्या भनी देखाईएको छ जुन पुर्णतः गलत अनि झुठो हो।

हामी प्रायः जसो मुस्लिम धर्मको संस्कृति अनि धर्म प्रचारको निम्ति देशको एक स्थान देखि अर्को स्थानहरूमा गइरहन्छौ।अनि मस्जिदमा बस्ने गर्दछौ।त्यस्तै एक कार्यक्रम लिएर हामी कालेबुङ आएका हौं।

कोलकाताको सोनारपूरमा शिक्षकको रूपमा कार्यरत शेख शेहनशाहले बताएअनुसार कालेबुङमा आएको टोलीमा बेसि जस्तो बिध्यार्थीहरु छ्न।जस्ले भर्खरै मात्र उच्च माध्यमिक परिक्षा दिएर बसेका छन्।आफ्नो समुदायको धार्मिक कुरा सिक्न अनि धर्मबारे जानकारी आदान प्रदान गर्न नै उनीहरू कालेबुङ आएका हुन्। “हामीलाई थाहा थिएन हाम्रो भीडियो बनाएर यस प्रकारको अफवाह पनि फैलिनेछ। यद्यपि जे पनि अफवाह फैलिरहेको छ यो पूर्णतया झुटो अनि भ्रमक हो”- उनले अझ भने।

अर्कोतिर कालेबुङको मुस्लिम सङ्गठनका पदाधिकारी  अञ्जुमन इस्लामियाले पनि भाइरल भीडियो अनि अफवाहमाथि आफ्नो आपत्ती जनाएको छ।सङ्गठनका मुख्यसचीव मसुद सुल्तानले पनि कतिथ भीडियोमा देखाइएका मानिसहरू कालेबुङ्को ठाकुरबाडी स्थित मस्जिदमा धार्मिक कार्यलाई लिएर आएको बताउँदै अकारण यस्ता अफवाह फैलाउनेमाथि कार्यवाही गर्नुपर्ने आफ्नो माग प्रति जोड दिदै भने। “कतिथ भीडियोमा देखाइएका मानिसहरू रोहिङ्या भनेर देखाइएको खबर पुर्ण रुपमा झुठो हो।भिडियोमा देखाइएका कोही पनी रोहिङ्या होइनन् उनीहरु सबैजना एक धार्मिक कार्यलाई लिएर आएका इस्लामिक धर्मावलम्बीहरू हुन्। यसरी मस्जिदमा इस्लामिक धर्मावलम्बीहरू बाहिरबाट आउने क्रम नौलो होइन। उनीहरू आउँछन् जान्छन् तर उनीहरूको भीडियो बनाएर झुटो खबर फैलाउनु उचित होइन”- उनले भने।

केहि वास्तविकता न बुझी सामाजिक सञ्जालहरुमा यस्तो झुटो खबर फैलाउनु एउटा अपराध हो।यस्तो नहुने अपराध गर्नेहरूलाई खोजेर प्रशासनले कार्यवाही गर्नुपर्छ। किनभने यस्तो भ्रामक कुराहरूको कारण गर्दा भोलिको दिनमा यदि कुनै ठुलो काण्ड भएमा त्यसको जिम्मेवार कस्ले लिने? यसर्थ प्रशासनले झट्ट यस दिशामा उचित कार्यवाही गर्नुपर्छ”- उनले आफ्नो माग राखे।

3:02 AM

रोहोङ्गिया मुश्लिमहरू कालेबुङ भित्रिएको दाबी गर्दै फेसबुक मार्फत् भाइरल बनेको भिडियोबारे  गफसफ.com  ले कालेबुङका मुश्लिम सङ्गठन अञ्जुमान ईश्लामियासँग सम्पर्क गरेर स्पष्टिकरण लिएको छ। भाइरल बनेको भिडियोमा दाबी गरिएका रोहोङ्गिया मुश्लिम भनिएका मानिसहरू खाँटी भारतीय नागरिक रहेको अञ्जुमान ईश्लामियाले दाबी गरेको छ।

अञ्जुमान ईश्लामियाका सचिव मसुद सुल्तानले उक्त भिड्योमा देखिएको मुश्लिमहरू रोहोङ्गिया नरहेको भन्दै कालेबुङ मस्जिदमा आएर बसेका धर्म प्रचारकहरू रहेको दाबी गरेका छन्। ‘कालेबुङ थाना अघि खिचिएको भिडियोलाई रोहोङ्गिया मुश्लिम भनि प्रचार गरिएको छ तर, त्यो अत्यन्तै झुटो खबर हो’ सङ्गठनका सचिव मसुद सुल्तानले स्पष्टिकरण दिँदै भने। भिडियोमा देखिएका सम्पूर्ण मुश्लिमहरू कालेबुङको ठाकुरबाडी स्थित मस्जिदमा बसेको दाबी गर्दै उनले उनीहरू आफ्ना धर्म प्रचारको क्रममा कोलकोताबाट आएका भारतीय नागरिकहरू रहेको उनले बताए। ‘सबैको सम्पूर्ण कागतपत्र हामीसँग सुरक्षित छ। उनीहरू सबै भारतीय नागरिकहरू हुन्।

यहाँ रोहोङ्गिया भनेर राजनैतिक रङ दिएर मानिसहरूमा त्रास फैलाउने प्रयास गरिएको छ’ मसुद सुल्तानले भने। उनले कुराकानीको क्रममा उक्त भिडियोलाई भाजपासँग संलग्न रहेका व्यक्तिले अप्लोड गरेको दाबी समेत गरेका छन्। ‘जुन मानिसहरूलाई रोहोङ्गिया भनिएको छ त्यो अत्यन्तै निराधार हो’ सुल्तानले अझ भने। उनले कतिजना आएका छन् भन्ने प्रश्नको सही जवाब नदिए पनि 8-10 जना मुश्लिमहरू धर्म प्रचारका
आएको अनि उनीहरू सबै ठकुरबाडी स्थित मस्जिदमा बसेको स्पष्टिकरण दिएका छन्। ‘उनीहरू जमात घुम्न यसरी आउँछन्। यहाँ मात्र होइन विभिन्न ठाउँहरूमा जमातको निम्ति घुम्छन्। यो वर्षौँदेखि चलिरहेको छ’ मसुद सुल्तानले अझ भने।

पहाडमा रोहिङ्या अनि गोर्खा जाती

9:52 PM

थुलुङ भाई

अहिले घरी सामाजिक संजालहरुमा कतिथ रुपले रोहिङ्या मुसलमान पहाडँ(कालेबुङ) भित्र पसेको भिडियो चर्चाको बिषय बनेको छ।

यदि साच्चै नै ती सबै ब्यक्तिहरु रोहिङ्या मुसलमानहरु हुन भने यो समग्र पहाडँ अनि गोर्खा जातीको निम्ति मात्रै नभएर देशको सुरक्षा ब्यवस्था माथी नै हमला हो।के भिडियोमा देखिएको ब्यक्तिहरु भारतीय  मुसलमान हुन अथवा पहाडँ घुम्न आएका साधारण पर्यटकहरु मात्र हुन?कहाँ छन् उनीहरु अहिले? के गर्दैछन्?

पुलिस प्रशासन अनि गोर्खाल्यान्ड क्षेत्रीय प्रशासनका अधिकारीहरुले झट्ट यो बिषय माथी ध्यानसंग छानबिन गरि सत्यता के हो जनता सामु ल्याउन नितान्त आवश्यक छ।कारण यस्ता घटनाहरुले पहाडँमा फेरि अशान्ति शृजना गर्न सक्छ भन्न सकिन्दैन। गोर्खाल्याण्ड क्षेत्रीय प्रशासनको प्रवेस द्वार सुकुना देखि केही मिनेट टाडो सालबाढीमा पनि बिगत दिनहरु भन्दा धेरै संख्यामा अवैध बंगलादेशीहरुको प्रवेस भएको कुरा प्रकाशमा आएको छ अनि उनिहरुले हेर्दाहेर्दै एउटा नयाँ गाउँ नै बनाएको लेखक स्वयं लाई अनुभव छ।तब प्रश्न उठँछ यहा,के यस्ता घटनाहरु प्रशासनको जानकारी बिना घटन सक्छ?के राज्यको खुफिया विभागलाई यस बारे जानकारी हुदैन? प्रश्न गम्भीर छ।अनि त्यो भन्दा गम्भीर कुरो यस्ता कुराहरु प्रकासमा आएपनी प्रशासन किन मौन? राज्य सरकार होस अथवा केन्द्र सरकार दुवैले यो बिसयमा चासो न राखेको झै देखिन्छ।

केन्द्र सरकारको एक रिपोर्ट अनुसार पश्चिम् बंगालमा मात्रै २ करोड अवैध बंगलादेशीहरु बसोबास गर्छन्।
आसाम राज्य पनि अवैध बंगलादेशीहरुको समस्याले ग्रसित छ भने उडिस्सा पनि अछुतो छैन।सन १९७९ सालमा अल आसाम स्टुडेन्ट युनियनले अवैध बंगलादेशीको मुद्दा सरकार सम्मुख उठाएका थिए।तर सरकारले गम्भीरता पुर्वक लिएन,फलस्वरूप वर्तमान समयमा आएर केन्द्र सरकारलाई हस्ताक्षेप गर्न कर लाग्यो अनि असली भारतीय मुसलमान अनि अवैध बंगलादेशी छुट्टाउने प्रक्रिया आसाममा चलिरहेको छ।यी तीन राज्य मध्ये अवैध बंगलादेशीहरुको निम्ति पश्चिम् बंगाल राज्यमा प्रवेस गर्न सबैभन्दा सजिलो रहेको पनि बिगतका कतिपय भाइरल भिडियोहरु अनि घटनाहरुले स्पष्ट बुझाएको छ।

अन्तमा कालेबुङ शहर भित्र रोहिङ्या प्रवेश गरेको कतिथ घटनालाई कुनै राजनीतिकरण नगरी गम्भीरता पुर्वक छानबिन गरि सत्य कुरा उजागर गर्न अहिलेको परिवेशमा आवश्यक छ।

जय हिन्द जय गोर्खा

Kalimpong’s poisonous mushrooms: Deaths toll 5, bodies exhumed for postmortem

1:30 AM

The death toll from eating poisonous mushrooms in Samsing in Kalimpong district has gone up to five. Seven persons of two families in the Samsing forest compound had eaten the wild mushroom for dinner on Wednesday last.

“The sons of the two families had gone to fix their water connection nearby, while they brought home mushrooms from the nearby woods as they returned,” local sources said.

It is learnt that Navi Bhujel, 60, his wife Sheela Bhujel, 58 and their son Mandeep Bhujel, 19 died undergoing treatment in a Siliguri hospital, while Shyam Kumar Rai, 68, died on Friday, and his wife Ashamaya Rai, 61, died on Saturday.

Though their bodies were buried on Sunday, police exhumed them yesterday for carrying out a post-mortem, sources said. It is also learnt that Rai’s sons Chetan Rai, 28, and Amit Rai, 19, are in a critical condition in a private nursing home in Siliguri.

The Superintendent of the Kalimpong district hospital, Dr Ankan Simlandi, said postmortem on the bodies was a must. “Four bodies were brought to Kalimpong yesterday, out of which, two had to undergo forensic tests. However, as there is no forensic lab here, the bodies were sent to Siliguri on Tuesday,” he said.

Meanwhile, following the deaths due to suspected consumption of poisonous mushrooms, the health department has started campaigning in the Samsing area. The department said it has cautioned residents against eating wild herbs and mushrooms.

Darjeeling district chief medical officer of health, Dr Pralay Acharya, who is also in-charge of the health department of Kalimpong district, said that am experts’ team from the health department was working there.

“Seven members of two families of Samsing had eaten cooked mushrooms on 18 April and they fell ill. Some of them were admitted in the Malbazar hospital and later referred to the North Bengal Medical College and Hospital. Some died during treatment there. Five persons have died so far, while two are still undergoing treatment in Siliguri,” Dr Acharya said.

Kalimpong movie Appa to feature Daya Hang Rai

8:18 AM
SNS | Kalimpong | April 24, 2018 : A young filmmaker of Kalimpong, Anmol Gurung, has scripted a movie and named it ‘Appa’ (father) where renowned actors from Nepal like Daya Hang Rai, Tulsi Ghimiray and Aruna Karki is all set to play major roles.

“The idea behind the film is to change the way our society looks at a father-son relationship,” Mr Gurung says. The shooting is scheduled to begin on 25 April at the historic Ghoom Railway Station in Darjeeling, while portions of the movie will also be shots in places like Sandakphu and Kalimpong.



“The main characters will be portrayed by Daya Hang Rai who has changed Nepali cinema’s dimensions, the legendary Tulsi Ghimiray the popular actor and filmmaker Aruna Karki,” Mr Gurung told reports here on Monday.

According to him, the shooting may wind up in 60 days, but the post-production process may take a year. “As such, we plan to release the movie on Father’s Day next year,” he said.

Mr Rai, meanwhile, said he is officially acting in India for the first time and that the story line of the film compelled him to sign it. “I was mesmerized by the story I listened to after Anmol Gurung sent it to me in an audio message format, and I did not want to miss an opportunity to work in it.

The subject is universal and people from all across the world can get connected to it,” the Nepalese actor said. Iconic filmmaker, Mr Ghimiray, who had said in the past that Nepal’s cinema and the cinema in Darjeeling Hills had a huge gap, on Monday said the standard of filmmaking here had radically gone up, with good technicians and actors fast coming up.

“Political elements often break us like people start branding us Nepal’s Nepali, Assam’s Nepali, and Burma’s Nepali,’ but art and culture always brings us together,” he said.

Sillery in Kalimpong entirely depends on Village Tourism

2:30 PM
Kalimpong…. Ghumako Chaw (Explored) ?

Sillery, a tiny hamet, nestled at a height of 6000 Ft used to be a home to just four families working in Cinchona plantation. Today, this village has grown big and has  around 32 families and its slowing booming as the major village tourism destination. Its name has been derived from the plant that used to grow abundantly in the region.  The plantation of Cinchona plant was started by the British in this region to derive Quinine to fight Malaria and is still cultivated today.

 This village is located 25 Km away from kalimpong town and is famous for its clean eco-friendly homestays surrounded with tall pine trees, which right away takes you to a surreal world where you can slow yourself down and be lost and relax all day long. The mesmerizing view of Kanchenjunga, short trekking trails and rural lifestyle experience are some of its main attractions that brings tourist from far away.
Sillery in Kalimpong entirely depends on Village Tourism

 Even though today Sillery is entirely dependent on village-tourisim, its amazing to see how this village have adapted themselves and welcomed the change by making a conscious effort of keeping it clean and simple without disturbing their daily rural lifestyle.

"The engineering cell is among the most important wings of the GTA and we have decided to decentralised this cell for better governance," said Gurung.

It has also been decided that sub-assistant engineers will have to make weekly visits to various sites, assistant engineers have to visit fortnightly and executive engineers have to make field visit every month.

"The engineers will have to maintain site visit book and the progress needs to be reported to high authorities regularly. Agencies would not perform will be blacklisted and terminated with immediate effect," said Gurung.
