By Special Correspondent | New Delhi | 29 July 2014::  On Saturday, 26th July, an Rights forum called ‘Sara Assam Bangali Jateeya Parishad (SABJP)’ staged demonstrations at Jantar-Mantar, New Delhi, the place of demonstration in Indian capital,  demanding citizenship for Hindus who have come from Bangla Desh. Later, representation was submitted in the name of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and BJP’s national President, Amit Shah. Shri Sudhendu Talukdar of SABJP, Shri. Pradip Muzumdar, Vice President of ‘Kaali Mandir Samiti’, Dr. Charudatta Pingale, national Guide of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, its Shri Vinay Panwalkar and other Bengali Hindu activists, who had come from Assam, participated in the demonstrations. Shri. Talukdar said, “Narendra Modi had promised before elections that Bangla Deshi Hindus would be given Indian citizenship after his coming to power; but he seems to have forgotten about it. He should keep his promise.”

The programme came into surface as a joint effort of Sara Assam Bangali Jateeya Parishad (SABJP), Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), Delhi Kaali Mandir Samiti, Rashtriyee Hindu Andolan (RHA) and Hindu Existence Forum.

Bengali Hindus came to India from Bangladesh to get rid off religious atrocities, must be given Indian citizenship: Sudhendu Mohan Talukdar, Advisor, SABJP. 

In his speech Shri Talukdar said: More than On Crore Hindus have taken refuge by running away from the clutches of fanatics of Bangladesh (Erstwhile East Pakistan) at the time of partition of India in 1947 and at the time of Liberation War of Bangladesh in 1971.   The atrocities and persecution on minority Hindus in Bangladesh is tremendous. Time to time Hindu minorities compelled to take refuge in Bharat under compulsion. However, if they are sent back to Bangladesh, it would be very similar to sending cows back to butchers that have been rescued from their clutches ! Will BJP Government understand this grave issue ?

In 2007, Congress State Government of Assam has detained some suspicious persons amongst Hindus and Muslims; on the basis of an order issued by the State Government and Hindus, who have come here from Bangladesh few decades ago, are treated with bias and repression. Release of such Hindus also made as one of the demands during the agitation. Sri Talukdar demanded reasonable and respectable status of Hindus came from Bangladesh as equal citizen of India, keeping them out of the list of ‘D’ (doubtful) voters list.

Talukdar praised the role of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti as a key organisation for making continuous efforts to fortify the integrity of the National and helping all small nationalist forums to get their right and natural justice in all possible ways.

Government will be responsible for ‘Dharma-kranti’ ! – Dr. Charudatta Pingale, National Guide, HJS.

Dr. Charudatta Pingale said while guiding demonstrators, “The rulers are responsible for this condition. A king who cannot recognize loyal citizens, who does not know who are the true sons of the soil, is unrighteous. In such situation, unity is the only solution forgetting own language, region and caste etc. We should proclaim that ‘Hindu is our only identity’. If the rulers do not take any action, Hindus will have to get ready for ‘Dharma-kranti’ and the Government will be responsible for outcome of such ‘Dharma-kranti’.”

It is very unfortunate to keep loyal citizens deprived of  citizenship ! – Shri Pradeep Muzumdar, Patron, SABJP.

Shri Pradeep Muzumdar said, “People, who strived to get freedom for the country, are deprived of getting citizenship which is very unfortunate. The agitation will be intensified in future, if no action is taken by the Government.”

Hindu migrants from Bangladesh must be accommodated: Narendra Modi

BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi addressing “Barak Bikash Samabesh” rally at Ramnagar in Silchar, Assam on Saturday.

BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi addressing “Barak Bikash Samabesh” rally at Ramnagar in Silchar, Assam on Saturday.

PTI | Silchar (Assam) | February 22, 2014:: BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Saturday said Hindu migrants from Bangladesh must be accommodated in the country and detention camps would be done away with once his party comes to power.

“As soon as we come to power at the Centre, detention camps housing Hindu migrants from Bangladesh will be done away with,” Modi told a public rally at Ramnagar here.

“We have a responsibility toward Hindus who are harassed and suffer in other countries. Where will they go? India is the only place for them. Our government cannot continue to harass them. We will have to accommodate them here,” he said.

Stating that this did not mean that Assam has to bear the entire burden, he said “it will be unfair on them and they will be settled across the country with facilities to begin a new life.”

Earlier, Hindus from Pakistan had arrived in Gujarat and Rajasthan, but Atal Behari Vajpayee during his prime ministership created schemes to accommodate them in different states, he said.

Modi alleged that the Assam government as a part of its vote bank politics had violated human rights of Hindu migrants in detention camps.

Speaking on the issue of ‘doubtful’ voters, Modi said this was also a part of the Congress’ vote bank politics of denying a section of the people their right to vote.

He urged the Election Commission to remove the tag of doubtful voters and give these people the right to vote to ensure free and fair polls.

Modi said that there were two kinds of people who came from Bangladesh to Assam; those brought as a part of a ’political conspiracy’ for vote bank politics of a particular party, and others who were harassed in the neighbouring country.

He said that those brought for vote bank politics and smugglers from Bangladesh should be pushed back, while the second category must find a place in the country.

“Bangladesh is next to Assam, while Pakistan is next to Gujarat. Assam Bangladeshi se pareshan hai par pura Pakistan mujse pareshan hai. (Assam is harassed by Bangladesh whereas Pakistan is bothered by me),” the Gujarat Chief Minister said at his second meeting of the day in the North East.

“You have to decide whether you will continue to tolerate Bangladeshi harassment or put an end to it. I have come to you for your answer. Trust me and as soon as we come to power we will take immediate steps to redress these problems and ensure that justice prevails,” he said.

No power in this world can snatch away our territory: Shri Narendra Modi in Pasighat 

Narendra Modi in Pashighat (Arunachal)HE Media Forum | Pashighat (Arunachal) | February 22, 2014:: Connecting Arnuachal and Gujarat in the natural phenomenon of sunrise and sunset, Narendra Modi enchanted a mammoth crowd at Pashighat and aroused a vibrant patriotism in the mind of the people of Arunachal Pradesh today in the meeting named Vijay Sankalp Abhiyan’ rally here. Calling Pasighat as the gateway of Arunachal and acknowledging it as the land of the brave, Shri Modi said, “If it was not for the patriotism of Arunachal Pradesh what would happen. People here are standing firm against China. People of this land did not come under pressure from China. The clarion call of ‘Jai Hind’ reverberates in this land.”

Appreciating the untapped natural beauty in Arunachal Pradesh, Shri Modi attributed the state as the ‘orchard of India’ and said that Gujarat and Arunachal Pradesh shared close relations. He added that the land of Arunachal was blessed to have the first rays of the sun fall here, and that the final rays of setting of the sun in Gujarat conveyed that they will rise again tomorrow in Arunachal. “The 1st rays of the sun bless this land. Arunachal Pradesh rises first then the rest of India rises,” said Shri Modi.

Stating that the thinking of the nation is changing, Shri Modi said that only the thought of progress will work now, and that the land and its people will not tolerate any acts of violence and aggression. “Yug badal chuka hai…vistarwadi mansikta sweekar nahi hogi. Cheen ko bhi yeh mansikta tyag deni hogi. Vikas ki mansikta chalegi. The ear has been changed. Nobody is ready to accept any expansionism . China should also reject this mentality of aggression.  The time will continue with the signs of development. No power in this world can snatch away our territory,” said Shri Modi.

Shri Modi said that the foreign powers are active in the north east and the unchecked infiltration is a very dangerous threat to our country. These must be tackled in a very strict regulations.

Urging the people of Arunachal to show their support for the BJP in the 2014 elections, Shri Modi said that the BJP would shine in all the 8 states of Northeast India. “The Lotus will shine in all the 8 states! There will be prosperity and progress in the region. Saugandh mujhe is mitti ki mai desh nahi mitne doonga, mai desh nahi tootne doonga, mai desh nahi jhukne doonga. I am taking the vow in the name of this soil that I will not allow any destruction of this country, I will not allow any further division of this country and never allow any situation for which My Nation shall have to bow down to others. Jai Hind.  ” said Shri Modi.

Though Narendra Modi restrained himself to comment hard over the growing Christian conversion and militant outfits poked by Chinese powers in the area, the prime ministerial candidate of BJP categorically cautioned China and the subversive powers engaged to destabilize the peace and integrity of North-East region of India and adjacent.

NRI Hindus rally against Jihad in India at Indian Consulate in New York. “SAVE INDIA FROM ISLAM”.

Posted by hinduexistence on September 4, 2012

INDIAN HINDU RALLY AGAINST JIHAD AT INDIAN CONSULATE AT NEW YORK: “SAVE INDIA FROM ISLAM“.

atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com||  Sunday, September 02, 2012 :: To the deafening chants of “Save India from Islam,” the Indian Hindu people gathered today on 5th Avenue by the Indian consulate in New York City to protest the relentless jihad against the free and brave nation.

India has long suffered at the hands of jihadists. At least 80 million Hindus have been slaughtered in jihadi wars. Centuries of persecution, oppression, genocide.

The history of India is teeming with Muslim monsters such as Timur the Terrible, who paraphrased the Koran: “‘O prophet, make war against the infidels and treat them severely.’ My great object in invading Hindustan (India) had been to wage a religious war against the infidelHindus.” And he did. Hundreds of thousands of Hindus were beheaded and towers made of their skulls. The warrior Babur was particularly fond of raising higher and higher towers of Hindu heads that the Muslims had cut off during and after every battle. He loved to sit in his royal tent and watch this spectacle. On one such occasion, the ground flowed with so much blood “and became so filled with quivering carcasses that his tent had to be moved thrice to a higher level.” (That’s from The Koran and the Kafir, by A. Ghosh.) He only missed the “merit” ofdemolishing temples and breaking symbols and images because his predecessor Firuz Tughlak hardly left any for him in the territories he traversed.

The record of jihad in India is extremely and unimaginably bloody. Mahmud of Ghazni, Mohammed Ghori, Firuz Tughlak, Timur, Muzaffar Shah, Mahmud Begarha, Mahmud Khalji, Ilyas Shah, Babur, Sher Shah Suri, Akbar the Great, Jahangir, Shah Jahan, Aurangzib, Abdali, Tipu Sultan, Siraj-ud-Daula, and so many others all persecuted, humiliated, tortured, terrorized, and slaughtered the Hindus throughout Islamic history in India.

The war against the infidel in India is monstrous, unremitting, and constant to the present day. From Mumbai to Kashmir, all over India north and south, the jihad rages..(more here.)

MEMORANDUM TO THE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA

Dr. Manmohan Singh
The Prime Minister of India
New Delhi

Through Consul General of India
New York, USA

Sub: India in Danger -
After Kashmir Radical Islam Taking Over Assam in North East
Jihad Spreading Far and Wide

Dear Prime Minister Singh:
The socio-political, religious and militant expansionist turbulence well within the boundaries of the country, with the participation of the transnational radical Islam, which is seemingly shaking the foundations of India, has given millions of Indo-Americans, their organizations and friends of India a serious cause for concern about the solidarity and integrity of India. The partisan policy of the establishment framed under the influence of the “politics of vote banks” has seemingly turned the situation all the more precarious. Progressively the country seems to be drifting in to the demographic, administrative and environmental chaos that existed during the dreadful days of partition in 1947.

Assam riots: CBI probe starts amid fresh violence

View Every updates of Assam Riots : http://www.hindujagruti.org/news/14581.html

PTI | Aug 09, 2012, 16:16PM IST :  Guwahati: A CBI inquiry into the Assam violence has been initiated and the Army put on alert, the government told the Rajya Sabha on Thursday as the opposition alleged that the region was not safe because of vote bank politics by the ruling Congress.

Replying to a debate on the issue of violence in Assam that has so far claimed 74 lives, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said the government was taking the issue seriously and has already initiated a CBI inquiry to ascertain the causes behind violent incidents.

“The government is taking this issue very seriously. A CBI team has gone there and an inquiry has started….I have instructed the Army to be alert,” he said.

As the opposition created an uproar expressing dissatisfaction over his reply, Shinde said, “I have instructed the Army to be on alert. What else do you want?”

He also listed the steps taken by the government to provide relief and rehabilitation, but the opposition dismissed what he said by creating uproar.

Earlier, leader of the Opposition Arun Jaitley charged the government with adopting the policy of vote bank politics that led to the current violent incidents in the state and alleged that the region was “not safe in its hands” if such a policy continued.

Jaitley also urged the government to have a relook at “this vote-bank policy” and start identifying the real problem of illegal infiltration that was causing unrest in the area.

“If you adopt the original line of Gopinath Bordoloi (who wanted the cultural and linguistic identity of the Northeast) India will be safe in your hands. But if you adopt vote bank politics, I don’t think this region is safe in your hands,” he said.

Jaitley accused the Centre of adopting a “clerical” approach to the problem and urged the Home Minister to reject such an approach.

“Here was a government which not only discarded the original Assam line…” but encouraged illegal infiltration enmasse in search of votebank politics, he said.

Welcoming the CBI probe into the issue, Jaitley urged the government not to treat this as a “simple crime” and not “miss out” on the issues as to why such incidents have taken place.

He also feared that going by “the kind of situation that is existing in these areas, such incidents are likely to be repeated”.

“Is this is not a normal consequence of the unnatural change of the demography that has taken place in those areas?” he asked.

Reminding the Congress leadership of the policy adopted by its former leader in Assam Gopinath Bordoloi, who wanted the cultural and linguistic identity of the North East, particularly of Assam, to be maintained, the BJP leader charged the ruling party with adopting a policy of vote-bank politics by allowing illegal immigrants and not deporting them.

“The Congress leadership at the time of partition was fully conscious of the North East and rightly so that its identity has to be maintained…Unfortunately somewhere post- Independence the line that the Congress took before partition was altered by the subsequent people in the party.

“They realised that Assamese vote was going away from them and so they were in search for an alternative vote bank…It is the pursuit of that alternative votebank that is the reason for the problems today,” Jaitley said. [From Dainik Bhaskar].

Assam riots: Four more bodies found, toll 77

PTI | GUWAHATI | 8 August 2012:: Four more bodies were recovered today in lower Assam, which witnessed fresh incidents of violence, taking the toll to 77, police said.

“Two bodies, that of a male and a female from the minority community, were recovered from Kokrajhar district, and one each from Baksa and Chirang districts,” Assam IGP (law and order) L R Bishnoi said.  [Pic. given above is representational].

He said of the two bodies found from Kokrajhar, one was fished out from Champa river and another was recovered from Gossaigaon area.

“There were certain fresh incidents of violence but the police has taken timely action to prevent escalation,” Bishnoi said.

The rival Bodo and Minority communities had planned attacks but intelligence inputs had helped in prempting the violence. They had planned arson in several interior villages but were thwarted by security forces, the IGP claimed.

Curfew is on in all four strife-torn districts of Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baksa and Dhubri, he said.

AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh is currently touring affected areas of Kokrajhar today.

The state government has directed the district administration to take stern action to ensure that there is no further outbreak of violence.

Fresh clashes between Bodos and minority immigrants had erupted on August 5 in the lower Assam districts after a relative calm of 10 days.

A CBI team is scheduled to arrive here tomorrow following chief minister Tarun Gogoi’s recommendation for a probe by the central agency, officials said.

A five-member team of Group of Ministers, constituted by the chief minister, visited refugee camps in Dhubri reviewed relief measures and directed the district administration to ensure health and hygiene. [From TOI].

Illegal Muslim Migrants are the main cause of Assam Riots. Assam under Islamic Seize within ‘Greater Bangladesh project’. Is Govt. of India sleeping senselessly?

Assam riots: Fruits of living in denial over Bangladesh influx.

by  : Jul 25, 2012 | First Post :: One of the red herrings being tossed around in the context of the ongoing riots in Assam is that the Muslims who attacked the Bodo tribals and drove them out of their homes are in fact Indians, and that it breaks their bleeding riotous hearts to be branded Bangladeshi settlers.

As perverse as that may sound, that claim isn’t an elaborate justification for the riots as typical ‘boys will be boys’ conduct. But it does represent another effort to draw the curtain on the foundational problem that underlies both the latest riots and the simmering tensions in Assam and elsewhere in the North East: the problem of unchecked infiltration of Bangladeshis into India.

Precise estimates of the number of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants in India are hard to come by but conservative official estimates put it at over 20 million. But every attempt to raise it as a matter of concern, and to point to the security and other social perils that they come laden with have been met with cussed unwillingness to face the facts.

Lt Gen (Retd) SK Sinha, who served in the region and served as Assam Governor following his retirement, knows what it means to raise the red flag of warning. In 1998, as Governor, he sent a report to President KR Narayanan, in which he warned of a grave danger to India’s security from the influx of illegal migrants from Bangladesh.

In that report, Sinha had pointed out that even as far back as 1947, Pakistan wanted Assam incorporated in East Pakistan (as the eastern province that subsequently became Bangladesh was known). Only the opposition of regional leaders thwarted that transfer, but the matter rankled with Pakistani leaders who equated it as a dispute nearly as important as the Kashmir dispute. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto is known to have claimed that Pakistan had “very good claims” over Assam and some districts adjacent to East Pakistan.

Sinha’s report noted that even the father of the Bangladeshi revolution, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, whom India helped to liberate Bangladesh in1971, had expressed a covetous desire for Assam, given its forest and mineral resources. “No matter how friendly our relations with Bangladesh,” Sinha had warned, “we can ill-afford to ignore the dangers inherent in a demographic invasion from that country.”

For his efforts, Sinha was pilloried by the Congress and the CPM and accused of stoking communal tension. Some 22 Congress MPs wrote to the President asking for Sinha’s recall.

Sinha’s concern all along, as a military strategist, was that the whole of India’s north-easteren region was connected to the rest of India by a “chicken neck corder” which, if cut off, would effectively isolate the region. He feared that the influx of illegal migrants was turning lower Assam districts – particularly Dhubri and Goalpara – into a Muslim-majority region, and that it would be only a matter of time before they demanded merger with Bangladesh as part of a ‘Greater Bangladesh project’. “The loss of lower Assam will sever the entire land mass of the northeast from the rest of India and the rich natural resources of that region will be lost to the nation,” Sinha had observed.

Illegal Bangladeshi migrants fleeing towards West Bengal borders to resettle there. But they will not return to Bangladesh anyway. Bangladeshi Muslims are the main cause of Assam Riots. Pic-Reuters.

In the decade and more since then, the plot has played out exactly as Sinha has predicted, and has been borne out by Census statistics over time, but most political parties have been blind to the security and social threats arising therefrom.

The irony is that the Indian Muslims in Assam, for all their religious affinity with the illegal Bangladeshi Musim immigrants, lose just as much from the influx as the other native people of Assam. The illegal immigrants compete for the same manual work – as rickshaw pullers and in the construction and other industries. And being somewhat more desperate for jobs, they are considered more industrious. And if they manage to procure illegal citizenship documents in the black market, as often happens, they illegal immigrants even have access to work under the NREGA program and services under the National Rural Health Mission.

Yet, political parties are reluctant to so much as have an honest conversation on this issue.

On the other hand, the argument has been made that there may even be an acceptable level of illegal immigration from Bangladesh on the ground that they add to the cheap labour pool in India. This argument is specious on at least two counts. For one, India isn’t exactly lacking in unskilled labour force, given the vast numbers that still live in abject poverty in both rural and urban areas. If it weren’t for rural employment guarantee schemes that have driven wage price inflation, there would still be an abundance of cheap labour. And now, illegal Bangladeshi immigrants have even begun to access these schemes and health services, driving up the cost of service delivery.

For another, even if it’s an overstatement that every illegal immigrant is a potential security threat, the presence of millions of such immigrants—who effectively remain off the radar of the official agencies—is a recipe for disaster.

Even if it is the case that the riots in Kokrajhar, which have since spread to other districts were not directly perpetrated by illegal immigrants, their unchecked entry in the millions over time has played an undeniable role in sharpening religious and ethnic polarisation in Assam and other States in the northeastern region. To live in continued denial over this will only stoke the tensions even further.

Right now, the immediate need is for calm to be restored, but the longer a mature discussion on the underlying problem is delayed, the bigger and more serious will it get.
