“Sonagachi” is Asia’s largest body business center. According to a survey, more than 16000 girls below 18 years are sex workers here. Here girls of every age and every religion are involved in that work. As soon as we discuss this, our society turns away crookedly. That is, it is not called good. Despite this, the government has also given rights to this area. No one can remove them from here. That’s why the settlement exists for years. Located on Chittaranjan Avenue, near Shobhabazar in North Kolkata, people have known the area as Sonagachi for several hundred years. 

Legend has it that Asia’s largest red light is named after a Muslim Wali (saint), the area on the eastern bank of the Hooghly River was a major trading center when Kolkata was settled 300 years ago. According to historian PT Nair’s book ‘A History of the Streets of Calcutta’, a dreaded Sanaullah was living in this area with his mother. The dacoit died after a few days, one-day Sanaullah’s crying mother heard a sound from her hut, the sound was coming from the hut, Mother, don’t cry… I have become a Ghazi, this is how the legend of Sona Ghazi came out from Sanaullah.

Soon the story started spreading around, and people started arriving at this shack and praying, people were reportedly cured of diseases by coming here, it is said that people felt spiritual there. This is how Sanaullah was received as a saint in a conspiracy to indulge in crime. Historian Nair says that Sanaullah’s mother built a beautiful mosque here in memory of her son, it came to be known as Sona Ghazi’s mosque. Sanaullah’s mother died after some days, and after that, there was no one to take care of this mosque, and slowly after a long period, this mosque completely disappeared. Because of this mosque, the neighboring area was named Masjid Bari, while Sanaullah Ghazi changed to Sona Ghazi and then gradually became Sonagachi.

How Sonagachi become a red Light area?

According to the journalist, a large number of traders/tourists come to any place where money, goods, and furnishings are produced. It is very easy for a red light area to flourish where it is a big center of business. Sonagachi’s prostitution business was once run by a well-known Bengali family. Today these dilapidated rooms are given on rent. Sanaullah’s dargah is still here. It was broken many times and it was repaired many times, unfortunately, the date of Sanaullah’s death is not written on this dargah.
This area comes under Shyampukur assembly seat of Kolkata district. Although the havoc of Corona, which has been going on for a year, has faded the tone of Sonagachi, there has been a slight stir in the elections, Apart from elections and other events of the country and the world, the township of Sonagachi is going on in its own rhythm, every evening has been illuminating here for many years.
