NDFB(P) condemns Uri massacre

By Shambhu Boro

TEZPUR, Oct 8 - The National Democratic Front of Bodoland (Progressive) has condemned the dastardly incident in the Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir wherein 18 jawans of the Indian Army sacrificed their lives. In an email, S Sanjarang, �information and publicity secretary� of the armed organisation said that they felt it necessary to clear their stand on some of the recent local, regional as well as the national issues thereby expressing their serious concern.

�We vociferously condemn Mr Nawaz Sharif, the Pakistan Prime Minister for his desperate attempt to malign India in the UN General Assembly with his blatant lies. We also condemn the Pakistan-sponsored hawks for perpetrating the dastardly incident in Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir where 19 soldiers of the Indian Army were killed. We condole their deaths and share the grief and sorrows with the bereaved near and dear ones of the soldiers who sacrificed themselves for the cause of the Nation. We appeal to the Government of India to adopt all kinds of diplomatic strategies to isolate Pakistan in the international forums.,� Sanjarang said.

He added that the organisation welcomed the courageous action of the Government of Assam in evicting the encroachers of Kaziranga National Park and Mayong of Morigaon district. He also mentioned that encroachers of National Parks � be it in Kaziranga, Manas, Orang, Nameri or any other in Assam (if any) should never be indulged upon and tolerated. Encroachment of large areas is taking place in the Manas National Park and the Orang National Sanctuary and we appeal to the Government of Assam to clear those encroachments for the safety and security of flora and fauna of those sanctuaries. Most of the poachers take shelter in the encroachers� homes and to stop illegal poaching of rhinos or any other flora and fauna of the national sanctuaries, eviction of the encroachments is a must.

The Government of India in its allegiance to the Constitution treats all religions and beliefs with equal respect and equal status. But the Citizenship (amendment) Bill 2016 which has been recently tabled in the Parliament by the Government of India to grant citizenship to the Hindu migrants from Bangladesh is a gross violation of the Constitution, it said. The Bill is not only heinous but will have worst effect on the bona fide citizens of Assam and Tripura, particularly on the downtrodden and marginalised indigenous tribal people. Foreigners irrespective of religious beliefs should be treated as foreigners and no foreigner should be either discriminated or favoured on the basis of religious belief. The idea of granting citizenship to the Hindu foreigners is against India�s very principle of secularism, it said. It is responsibility of the Government of Assam to mount massive pressure on the Union Government to revoke and scrap the Citizenship (amendment) Bill 2016 by which the Union Government is attempting to grant citizenship to the Hindu illegal migrants from Bangladesh.
