India may soon grant citizenship to Hindu refugees from Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Hindu Refugees from Pak and BD still unsettled

Hindus from Pakistan & Bangladesh will get Indian citizenship, but what about to stop persecution there? 

Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | New Delhi | June 3, 2016:: A mixed reaction has come up with this news that Government of Indian is now contemplating to grant citizen status to the displaced Hindus from Pakistan and Bangladesh due to religious apartheid occurring in these two Islamic countries bordering Indian in its western and eastern sides.

While lakhs of migrated Hindus mainly from Bangladesh and Pakistan are naturally hoping for a permanent domicile in India under citizenship status, another spate of huge Hindu migration is awaited in  India leaving Pakistan and Bangladesh over the issue of optimum Islamic persecution there causing Hinduless Bangladesh and Pakistan ultimately.

The BJP led government in center has proposed to facilitate minority Hindu communities who are facing religious persecution while residing in Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan and compelled to migrate here for becoming citizens of India.

BJP had earlier stated in its election manifesto 2014 that India shall remain a natural home for persecuted Hindus and they shall be welcome to seek refuge here. But, the same party or its Govt. in center have not spent meaningful words to alert the respective Govts in Pakistan and Bangladesh to stop violent persecution upon the minority Hindus there in severe distress.

There are around 400 Pakistani Hindu refugee settlements in cities like Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Jaipur, Raipur, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Kutch, Bhopal, Indore, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Delhi and Lucknow. Though the exact numbers are not known, there are over 2 lakh Hindus and Sikhs living as refugees in various regions around India.

But, the Bangladeshi Hindu refugee settlements in India are really difficult to identify. These are stretched all over India. Staring from Bangaigaon, Barpeta, Nagaon, Dhubri, Silchar (Assam), around Agartala in Tripura, these settlements go upto Bhopal and Nagpur (Maharashtra). These ‘non citizen’ Bangladeshi Hindus are anyway settled in Darjeeling, Siliguri, Bagdogra, Islampur, Panjipara, Balurghat, Raiganj, Karandighi, Itahar, Kushmondi, Tapan, Gazole, Malda in North Bengal and various places in South Bengal in Ranaghat, Chapra, Shantipur, Hanshkhali, Karimpur (Nadia); Bangaon, Bashirhat, Barasat (N 24 Pgs) Kakdwip. Basanti, Canning, Sunderban, Sagar (South 24 Pgs) and many places hitherto unknown. Even these un-accounted Hindu populace from Bangladesh are even settled in Hastinapur and Rudrapur clusters (near Delhi), Gorakhpur or Azamgarh as the sources tell. Though the exact numbers are not known, there are over 20 lakh Bengali Hindus from Bangladesh are living as refugees in various regions around India.

Subhas Chakroborty, an activist of Nikhil Banga Nagarik Samiti told HENB that some 11 lakh Hindu families were compelled to leave East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) between 1947 and 1971. Afterwards, an estimated 65,00,000 Hindus left Bangladesh phase by phase from 1971 till date due to unbearable situation prevailing in Islam oriented Bangladesh. “If half of the migrated Hindus from Bangladesh anyway managed to procure ration cards, voter cards etc, a huge number of these displaced Hindus are still put in a stateless situation and residing in India stealthily to save their lives and own Hindu identity”, a dismayed Chakroborty told HENB over mobile phone.

The situation is unimaginable. It’s a huge task for the GOI, if they want to rehabilitate these numbers of ‘stateless’ Hindu people in India. Govt. must keep keen vigil also on the entire process so that the Bengali speaking Muslim infiltrators from Bangladesh can’t vitiate the entire process under a guise of Hindu names purportedly.

Now, the decision has been taken under the Passport  Act, 1920, and the Foreigners Act, 1946, according to a statement by the Home Ministry. Sources suggest that a bill to amend the Citizenship Act 1955 is likely to be introduced during the monsoon session of Parliament scheduled in July-August. The government has also issued two notifications in the Official Gazette today under the Passport Act, 1920, and the Foreigners Act, 1946.

The announcements have been made a day after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj gave assurance to Pakistani Hindu girl Mashal Maheshwari residing in India for removing the hurdles for her higher education in medical stream. Home Minister Rajnath Singh is said to have held a meeting to review the status of facilities being extended to minorities from neighbouring countries living in India.

But, the Govt. of India must not ignore the other consequences if the present venture makes a broader avenue to attract the residual Hindus in Bangladesh and Pakistan leaving those countries Hinduless. GOI must give strict caution to Pakistan and Bangladesh simultaneously to stop barbaric persecution there in the highest level.

    It is a serious issue that those who fought the British power In India are now living in a inhuman condition as refugees in their own soil. When India gained independence from the British yoke, each and every Indian equally fought and contributed to the freedom struggle to see India a free nation. when India was declared a free nation by the Indian independence Act of 1947 passed by the British parliament , the nation was split into two dominions- India and Pakistan based on religious lines and people were forced to leave their ancestral land and property and became refugees overnight without any food and shelter and safety to life and property. Millions of Muslims migrated to the newly formed dominion of Pakistan. Likewise millions of Hindus had to part with their land and property and cross the border. Approximately 14 million Hindu refugees which included, Sikhs, Sindhis, Biharis and Bengalis tried to cross the border . Close to 1.5 million people died due to starvation.

    This was not the India that we Indians dreamt of. We wanted India to be a free nation but never had any single Indian thought of a possible partition. There was loot and murder everywhere. This was all due to the notorious game played by the British which broke the backbone of this great Indian nation. The political leaders of India declared India as a free nation but simultaneously divided the country into two nations. Bengal and the Punjab was divided. East Bengal and West Punjab along with the whole of Sind became part of Pakistan. The Hindus settled in East Bengal and the Sikhs settled in places like Lahore and Karachi in West Punjab had to flee their homeland because of religious persecution. Who is to be blamed for all these incidents? Was it the British alone or the Muslim League or the political stalwarts of India who even did not bother to give it a second thought as to the possible implications of the big divide.

    Its, therefore, quite natural that people would prefer coming back to India as the minorities are not secured, both Pakistan and Bangladesh being Islamic states. The Government of India should give adequate protection to these group of people whose forefathers equally contributed to the freedom movement of India but are facing inhuman atrocities because they are treated as subhumans in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

    The Hindu minorities facing religious violence in these two countries cannot be blamed for trying to migrate to India.
