Citizenship to Hindu migrants, anti-Constitutional: Mahasangha

India is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious country. But under the leadership of PM Modi, the government is all up to provide Indian citizenship to illegal migrants on the basis of religion. Assam is primarily a state of Mongoloid races. The Modi led BJP government is lending precedence to the systematic approach of the former governments in reducing the ruling Mongoloid classes in their own lands to a minority, better said slavery.

“Some 80 lac people belonging to the Hindu community who fled to India following the 1965 and 1971 Indo-Pak War from East Pakistan will be given Indian citizenship destroying in the process the fabric of the indigenous people,” echoed Asom Sanmilita Mahasangha, President, Chandra Kanta Terang in an urgent communiqué.

The Asom Sanmilita Mahasangha is an umbrella organization of 40 strong indigenous organizations representing the aboriginal and indigenous populations of Assam cutting across belief systems.

During the indigenous peoples’ convention held in Jorhat on April 25, 26 recently, the Mahasangha expressed grave concern on what it calls PM Modi’s divisive and communal rationale.

The Mahasangha vide its resolution (13), strongly condemned the Modi led BJP government for dividing and favoring Hindu migrants on the basis of religion calling the attempt an ill-intended conspiracy.

The Mahasangha demanded that illegal migrants must all be considered migrants irrespective of being by belief system, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists or Christians and dealt with under the due provisions of the country.

Vide resolution 14, the Mahasangha held that during and after the  two Indo-Pak Wars, migrants have settled from East Pakistan in the tribal belts, hills, forest lands, grazing patches, Satra (Namghar) properties, the sand isles and bars, the towns, cities and encroached upon government lands, burnt down indigenous settlements resorting to racial extermination from time to time fomenting unrest among the resident populations (Hindus and Muslims) and therefore, the decision to grant Indian citizenship selectively to Hindus alone by the Modi led government has been strongly condemned.

This is a tremendous blow to the multi ethno religious foundation of India and an anti-Constitutional effort stated the Mahasangha.

The Mahasangha declared that in keeping with the Constitution of India and the prevailing law, migrants who entered Assam post 1951 shall not be allowed to stay back.

Notably, BJP President Amit Shah during his Assam visit on April 26 declared that Hindus from Bangladesh will be given Indian citizenship if the BJP comes to power in Assam in the 2016 elections.
