Religious polarisation will hurt Bengali Hindus: Rajbongshi

By Staff Correspondent

SILCHAR, Jan 18 - Religious polarisation over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 will be detrimental for the people of the state, speculated Dr Paramananda Rajbonshi, president of Asam Sahitya Sabha.

Addressing mediapersons on the sidelines of the central commemoration of Jyoti Divas to mark the death anniversary of Rupkonwar Jyotiprasad Agarwala here on Thursday, Rajbongshi said, �politics has caused a great divide among people living peacefully in Barak and Brahmaputra valleys.

�The BJP and other associations are upbeat with the intent of religious polarisation, which is the hidden motive behind the efforts to get the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill-2016 passed.�

�Once this gets materialised, people living in Barak Valley, Bengali Hindus in particular, might have to face a tough situation in the coming days. The Asam Sahitya Sabha does not support the idea of religious polarisation.�

On the other hand, sharing his views on the process of the National Registrar of Citizens(NRC), Rajbongshi said that along with other genuine citizens, names of many khilonjia people were missing from the published draft list.

�The Sabha is hopeful that the khilonjias will be included in the final list without much fuss. Further, the Sabha will also focus on according special care for the khilonjia villages in Barak Valley,� Rajbongshi maintained.
