KOKRAJHAR, April 25 - The Bodo Sahitya Sabha (BSS) today demanded the Government of India to take stern action against the Muslim fundamentalist organisations operating in BTAD region before they become uncontrollable. The Sabha has submitted a memorandum to the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday via e-mail demanding action against the fundamentalist operatives in the region.
Talking to mediapersons at RN Brahma Memorial Bhawan here today, the president of the BSS Dr Kameswar Brahma said that some Muslim fundamentalist organisations like Al-Qaeda, JMB, MULTA etc., have been active in Assam, particularly in Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) areas since some years and have caused terror among the indigenous people living within the Council. These organisations have been trying to destabilize the social fabric by inciting communal violence among different communities and religious groups, he said while adding that the Sabha was apprehensive about the aftermath of such social unrest let loose by the fundamentalist organisations and the BSS had apprised the Government of India through a memorandum after staging a mass dharna in New Delhi on November 26, 2014.
The BSS said that the overall situation in Assam and BTC, so far as the Jehadi operatives are concerned, is very apprehensive. The Jehadi elements could create communal violence at any moment of time in the days to come thereby destabilizing the social peace and communal harmony among the people living in the region unless they are dealt with firmly. The Sabha has demanded all precautionary measures as early as possible.
The BSS also expressed doubt over on the publication of correct NRC data. The BSS leaders said that doubtful citizens were reportedly enclosing fake certificates with the NRC forms and a section of lawyers are helping this fraud to happen. The Sabha demanded that there should be proper scrutiny of the papers submitted by the suspected Bangaldeshi nationals. They further said that some madrasas were not free from fundamentalist operatives and, therefore, the Government of India must keep a strict vigil on the activities of the madrasas.
The press meet was also attended by the general secretary of the BSS Kamala Kanta Mashahary, vice president Biseswar Basumatary, secretary Rajendranath Brahma, among others.
