Speaking on the occasion, Shailaja garu, Director of Samvith Prakashan, who are publishers of the book, said that before and after the partition of India in 1947, the people of Bengal had to struggle constantly with the onslaught of Islamic Jihadi forces. Right from 1941 till date, the Hindus of then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), had to face repeated attacks from these forces who created an atmosphere of terror. For the last 8 decades, Hindus have had to face attacks from Islamic forces on one hand and Communist, Trinamool Congress forces on the other hand. This book of 144 pages will be useful to the current generation of readers to understand the nature and magnitude of decades’ long violence and its impact on Bengali Hindu society. Recent events in Bengal, reports of post-poll violence, arson and loot, with thousands fleeing their homes to the security of neighbouring states, have disturbed many. The book describes the resignation of Pakistan’s first law minister, Sri Jogendra Nath Mandal, the circumstances and the developments of the period which forced him to resign and leave Pakistan for India. His first-hand eyewitness record of the atrocities committed on Hindus in East Pakistan, which he had mentioned in his resignation letter is also included in the book.
