WEST BENGAL: A low intensity blast rocked the Belur Math complex at Howrah in West Bengal on Friday night.

Two crude bombs went off ahead of the evening prayers around 5:30 PM, sources inform. The blast took place near the shoe rack of the worshippers outside the main temple.  

No one has been reported injured in the blast; however, the window panes of the temple have broken down.

The police immediately rushed to the spot and started their investigation into the matter. The intention behind the attack is yet to be discovered.

Founded by Swami Vevikanada, Belur Math is the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission and is located on the west bank of the Hooghly River, Belur and comes under the Bally police station area.

Notable for its architecture, the temple is the heart of the Ramakrishna Movement.

It's really sad the way media

It's really sad the way media is ensuring that this incident is considered as just a prank and theft incidents in church were taken up by media as a threat to minority even before the investigation was carried out. In this case media is asking everyone to wait for the investigation to get over. It's time for true citizens to understand the real agenda of people like Pramod roy who belongs to minority community and only supports his community. As media can influence people a lot every true patriot should come together and fight against this bias. Definitely there will be a backlash
