Dhubri : Raising concern over the fate of Bengali and Muslim minority in Assam, Mr. Mohammed Kazam Ali Khan , founder and President of ANC, a emerging political party in Assam, appeals to the Govt to ensuring justice’ ahead of citizen list going to release on 30th July.
“While awaiting your response, we would like to call on your Government to take all steps necessary to conduct a comprehensive review of the NRC update, ensuring that its implementation process is compliant with relevant international human rights standards,” Mr. Mohammed Kazam Ali Khan said.
Looking at the increased attacks on Muslims across the country over the last few years, it is understandable if the community only looks at the many issues related to NRC anomalies more from the persecution angle and less as a bureaucratic bungling.
However, the Bengali Hindus and Muslims of Assam will have to somewhere draw the line when it comes to the question of who should represent them. If it is a religious body or bodies, or someone associated with these, which is oft seen to be the case, it will only add salt to the old wounds of the majority community, and give a ready field to the opposing religious forces to step in. The community will have to create a space for rights-based politics instead.
Ambedkar National Congress is a political party based in India. The party works for the rights of Dalits. Mr. Mohammed Kazam Ali Khan is the founder and President of ANC.
