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.
