Guwahati: Muslims have become the largest community in his state, according to CM Himanta Biswa Sarma, who said in the state assembly on Tuesday that they should start acting like a majority group. He also placed the burden of ensuring communal harmony on the Muslim community, particularly those of Bengali descent.
CM Himanta Biswa Sarma went on to say that even the state’s “indigenous Muslims” are afraid of losing their identity under the BJP’s rule. He claimed to have proof to back up his claim. In response to a debate over the Governor’s motion of thanks, Sarma stated that “minorities (Muslims) have now become the majority.”
CM Sarma went on to say that Muslims should understand that the state’s progress is directly related to their activities and that Muslims should work to alleviate the state’s problems in the areas of poverty alleviation, population control, and so on.
He advised him to stop thinking of himself as an “outsider” and instead concentrate on achieving communal unity and harmony.
