Back on the heels of the disturbing reports of Hindus not being allowed to vote in the previous phase in Muslim dominated areas of Raiganj, there are reports that Hindus are being barred from buying land in areas where Muslims are the dominant population. Twitter user Sanjib Ghosh (@sampadscales), has exposed a dictum supposedly from Muslim owners in Barasat in WB, which bars people from the Hindu communities from buying the land.
Sanjib Ghosh tweeted a image of a board in Bengali and wrote that Hindus cant buy land in their own land today. The tweet warned that "Hindus can't buy land in their own land today. Wake up...else one day Hindus will be refugees in their own land. The situation will be like those of Kashmiri Pandits". Here are his tweets:
