A Forgotten Leader
Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal
04 April 1947
It's the birthday of West Bengal
After too much of hardship
Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee
influenced Bengal Legislature
to include Hindu part of Bengal with India.
Jinnah said ….
He will not settle partition
if Calcutta not given to Pakistan
Our untrue Communists found it's justified
Congress agreed to gift entire Bengal
ignoring the interest of huge Hindu population.
Calcutta then biggest and richest city in India
Jinha and Bengali Muslims were sure
It will go to majority community
But Dr Mukherjee stood like an iron pillar
Unfaithful Communists went on back foot
Congress became speechless
first time in history capital city of a divided state
not given to the majority
It went to minority Bengali Hindu
Dr Mukherjee saved lives and dignity
Of five crore Hindus
by keeping western part of Bengal with India.
Today he is almost forgotten in West Bengal
And levelled as a communal leader
Because he saved Bengali Hindus of West Bengal
from gradual death and fast vanishing of existence
as happened in Lahore, Karachi and Dhaka
during last 67 years
Never forget this date in history
If you are a Bengali Hindu
Never forget Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee
He is the real hero of Hindu Bengali
Not anyone from communists and Congress
They are the culprits, Muslim lovers.
