NFTV : Kolkata: Today, the Calcutta football Derby between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan was held where Mohun Bagan beat East Bengal 2-1. Mohun Bagan supporters, mostly the original residents of West Bengal, unfurled a huge banner, reading “When we were here, there were no documents.” Another read: “Saffron Brits be warned. We taught India to fight the British. Never forget.”
The East Bengal fans, mostly refugees or people who have come from what is today called Bangladesh, had one reading: “This land has been bought by our blood, not by documents.” (in pic) Perhaps the biggest takeaway from today’s Derby.
