Bodo vs Bangladeshi - G.Subramaniam - 09-20-2012

Tapan Ghosh = Assam is burning. To protect their land from the Bangladeshi Muslims - Bodo, Santhal, Asomia and Bengali Hindus of Assam became united. They realised the dirty game of the political parties. Hence they took arms in their own hand and started to cleanse their land from the foreign intruders. The effect of Assam is sure to be felt in the North Bengal. Let us hope that the communal fire of Assam will be a wake up call for the Hindus of West Bengal.

DCs asked to submit report by Aug 31

Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Aug 25 – The State Government has again directed the Deputy Commissioners of the districts to submit their reports by August 31 on the steps taken to free sattra and other religious institutions’ land from encroachment.

An official press release here said that Minister, Revenue and Disaster Management Dr Bhumidhar Barman has laid stress on freeing the land of the sattra and other religious institutions from encroachment.



The State Government had earlier issued instructions to the DCs in this regard. But, no report from the DCs has been received by the Government so far on the matter. This has necessitated issuance of a fresh instruction to the DCs on the issue after their visiting such institutions, said the press release, quoting the Minister.



It is pertinent to mention here that according to the Asom Sattra Mahasabha (ASM), around 7,000 bighas of land belonging to various sattra institutions of the State are in the grip of the encroachers. It has alleged that 85 per cent of this sattra land is under the encroachment of the illegal migrants.



It has alleged that 39 sattras are affected by the encroachers. Worst affected among these institutions are — Ram Rai Kuti Satrasal Sattra in Dhubri district, Rampur Sattra in Nagaon district, Adi Alengi Sattra at Bihapuria, Barpeta Sattra, Kobaikata and Ali Pukhuri Sattras in Morigaon district.



Ram Rai Kuti has 1,000 bighas of its land under encroachment, and of it, around 500 bighas located in the No Man’s land along the Indo-Bangla border, is under the direct encroachment of the Bangla nationals. Around 200 bighas of the sattra’s encroached land is occupied by the Hindu refugees.



The Rampur Sattra, a branch of the Narowa Balisattra in Nagaon district, has around 600 bighas of its land under encroachment, while Bardowa Sattra in the same district has around 200 bighas of its land under encroachment.



The Adi Alengi Sattra has around 450 bighas of its land under encroachment. Barpeta Sattra has around 460 bighas of its land under encroachment, while Kobaikata has around 120 bighas of its land and the Alipukhuri Sattra has around 186 bighas of its land under encroachment, former president of the ASM Bhadra Krishna Goswami had told The Assam Tribune on June 25 last. Goswami had led an ASM delegation that met Governor J B Patnaik that day on the issue.



In a separate move, Professor R D Choudhury, former Director General of the National Museum, had urged the Central Government some time back to take steps to protect the landed property of the Vaishnavite sattra institutions in the pockets dominated by the immigrant Muslims.



He had said in the letter to the Union Home Secretary some time back that the sattra land had been encroached upon by the immigrants.



Significantly, the Gauhati High Court had earlier directed the DCs and SPs of the districts concerned to take steps against those encroaching upon sattra land and also to provide full protection to the sattras and their people. The High Court directive came in the wake of a writ petition filed by advocate Kuntala Deka and others.



But it is alleged that the State Government has not been taking stringent measures to evict the encroachers and also to discourage further encroachment on sattra land.


Bodo vs Bangladeshi - G.Subramaniam - 09-21-2012

Through a breakthrough revelation it is found that Newly formed United Muslim National Army (UMNA) might be behind the ethnic clashes in Bodoland Territorial Administered Districts (BTAD) in lower Assam that claimed 56 lives, thousand injured and lakhs of people displaced recently. The former militant outfit Bodoland Liberation Tigers(BLT) alleged this new theory on Wednesday over the recent Indigenous Assam (Bodo) people vs the illegal Muslim migrants from neighbouring Bangladesh.



Jonomohan Mushahary, chairman of the now defunct BLT Welfare Society, alleged that UMNA was created in June 15 this year and was behind last month’s violence with support from All Assam Minority Students’ Union (AAMSU)and All Bodoland Minority Students’ Union (ABMSU).



UMNA, he claimed, is headed by policeman Ramjan Islam alias Mohibul Islam alias Ratul who was planning to destabilize BTAD and form a ‘Muslim Land’ including 13 districts of Assam upto Golaghat.

He proudly declared that Bodos were Kshartiyas steeped in the traditiion of VALOUR -- just like Punjabis. They will not yield. And Bodos will assert their belief in "SHAKTI' by shouting 'Jai Hind'.

Decline of the Indigenous People and Growing Tensions in Assam

The recent disturbances in Kokrajhar and Dhubri districts of Assam have once again brought the issue of large-scale immigration of Muslims from Bangladesh into sharp focus. The immigration has continued for so long and in such large numbers that the indigenous Hindu populations have become a minority in several districts, and in numerous taluks, there are hardly any indigenous Hindus left. The situation has become so intolerable that normally reticent constitutional authorities – like the Election Commissioner of India, Sri Harishankar Brahma – have been forced to make their apprehensions public. And even committed secular scholars have been constrained to recognize the reality of the drastically changed religious demography of the region and the uncontrollable passions it has the potential to unleash. But there have also been attempts in some mainstream papers, especially in the articles by Banajit Hussain in the Hindu of August 8 and Nilim Dutta in the Indian Express of August 3, to whitewash the facts through presentation of curiously manipulated and selective census data. These articles are intended to especially counter Mr. Brahma’s devastating analysis and to suggest that he does not know his numbers.



The phenomenon of the immigration of Bengali speaking Muslims into lower Assamis so blatant, and so large that it is impossible to hide it from the data. The fact stands out conspicuously in all census data since 1901, when the British started deliberately settling Bengali Muslims, especially from the East Bengal district of Mymensingh, in the lower Assam districts of Brahmaputra valley. As a consequence, the proportion of Muslims in Assam rose from 15 percent in 1901 to 25 percent in 1951. The number of Muslims in the state in this period rose from less than 5 lakhs in 1901 to nearly 20 lakhs in 1951. Population of Hindus in Assamin that period had only doubled, from about 29 lakhs to 59 lakhs. Even the latter figure is high compared to the average growth of population in India during that period, which indicates some migration of Hindus also.



If during 1901-1951, the Muslims of Assam had grown at the same rate as in the rest of undivided Indiain this period, than there should have been only about 8 lakh Muslims in Assam in 1951, as against 20 lakhs that were counted in the census. These 12 lakh excess Muslims represent the numbers that had entered Assam during 1901-1951 and their descendants. It is claimed that since these persons had come into Assam, when India was still united and therefore are legitimate citizens. This, of course, is true; but the truth is no consolation for the indigenous populations who were forced to share their limited natural resources and space with outsiders brought in or allowed to settle by an alien government. It should be remembered that the incoming Muslims had settled in a small area of Assam. Of about 20 lakh Muslims counted in 1951, 16 lakhs were in the then undivided four districts of Goalpara, Kamrup, Darrang and Nagaon. Proportion of Muslims in these four districts together increased from less than 13 percent in 1901 to nearly 33 percent in 1951.



But the in-migration of Muslims from East Bengal did not stop with Independence and Partition. The number of Muslims in Assam has increased from about 20 lakhs in 1951 to 82 lakhs in 2001. Thus their numbers quadrupled in the period from 1901 to 1951, and again from 1951 to 2001.



If the Muslims of Assam had grown at the same rate as the average population growth of the country, then there would have been just about 56 lakh Muslims there in 2001 and if they had grown at the much higher rate of Muslims in the country, then also there would have been only about 72 lakh Muslims in Assam. Thus there is a clear access of at least 10 lakh Muslims and perhaps of around 20 lakh Muslims in Assam, which can be attributed only to immigration from outside the country. As a consequence, the proportion of Muslims in lower Assam has increased to 40 percent; their proportion in undivided Goalpara district in 2001 is more than 51 percent and in Dhubri component of it, it is nearly 75 percent.



In the last two decades, along with the immigration of Muslims from outside, another factor has begun affecting the religious demography of Assam. The rate of growth of communities other than Muslims and Christians has started falling steeply. In 2001, in at least 6 districts of Assam, Hindus registered a decadal growth of less than 10 percent, while Muslims and also Christians grew at much higher rates. The table below, giving the data for all component districts of lower Assam tells its own story.

The excessively low growth of Hindus in the first six districts in the Table above cannot be natural and indicates some level of expulsion of Hindus from these districts. In fact, as seen in the Table below, there are at least 8 taluks of these districts which recorded negative Hindu growth during 1991-2001. This reduction in numbers could only be possible, if large numbers of indigenous families from these taluks were forced to move out. It is unfortunate that though the indications of such an expulsion of Hindus have been available at least since 2004, when the religious demographic data of the 2001, we have made no enquire about the unfortunate people who have been thus forced to abandon their homes in Independent India.

Religious demographic data for the count of 2011 has not yet been released. But, there are already indications that several districts of Assam have shown a very low rate of growth, while Muslim dominant districts like Dhubri, Goalpara, Barpeta, Nagaon and Marigaon in lower Assam, and also Hailakandi in Cachar, have grown at a much higher rate than the average of the state. Dhubri, the district with highest percentage of Muslims in 2001, has also recorded the highest growth of all districts in 2011 at 24.40 percent compared to the state average of less than 17 percent. The process of demographic change and of the marginalisation of Hindus in Assam has not yet abated.



Assam may be the worst example of drastic religious demographic change leading to extreme tensions in the society. But, the problem is not confined to Assam alone. There are several large regions and limited pockets which are facing similar change and tensions. The nation can hardly afford to ignore the problem any longer.

Virtual economic blockade affecting Muslims in BTAD







Submitted by admin4 on 1 January 2013 - 3:17pm



Indian Muslim





Months have passed since violence broke out in the Bodoland Territorial Area District (BTAD) in July 2012. In this special series on Bodoland violence, we bring stories of violence, desperation, and also hope from this "tinderbox." This series has been made possible with financial support from Indian Muslim Relief Committee (IMRC).



By TwoCircles.net Staff Reporter,



Kokrajhar: Although there is no official word on it, virtual economic blockade of sort is found in the Bodoland Territorial Area Districts (BTAD) after the July end ethnic riots. As people started coming back, there were rumors that Bodos found having any sort of transaction or employing any Muslim would be penalised.



Simmering tension and fear factor have anyway forced both communities into safer places, but Muslims families have been crippled economically. After the murder of a teacher and a farmer in November when they had gone for work, now Muslims are anyways afraid to venture out.



Bengali Muslims generally provide manpower resources in all kinds of manual labour required works.









A local vegetable market







Rafiq, son of a carpenter, and student of BA said that he had to leave his study and find a job so that at least his daughter could complete study. His father had invested his little savings in completing a big furniture requirement in a college before the riot began. But as riot ensued, he has now indirectly been asked not to deliver gods “for the time being.”



Boycott is to the extent of not buying fishes or vegetables from Muslims in local markets. Consequently all Muslims, whose vehicles were used in even the Food Corporation of India based in Gosaigaon, have been ‘indirectly’ asked to stop their services. At least three shops in Gosaigaon market have been virtually shut down. Some shops near Gosaigaon station are also temporarily shut down.



Similarly about permits of about 17 Muslim fishermen in the Gosaigaon committee have been cancelled and allotted to others.









Teas stall in a local bazaar in Ballamguri village in Gosaigaon.







Md. Rafikul Islam used to sell seeds in a bazaar (market), but over four months since the riot broke out first, and he is still afraid to go as the market is in a Bodo dominated area.



Nawab Ali had a stationery shop in Saraibil market, a Bodo locality. His Bodo friends advise him against coming there as ‘situation is not favourable and he may be killed.’

TCN also met an LIC agent who said his work was doing well and collecting over 40 lkahs annual, but now his Bodo clients refuse to interact with him, in fear.



52 organisations, including Joint Action Committee for Bodoland Movement (JACBM) and NDFB, has now declared economic blockade beginning January 1, 2013 for a separate statehood of the Bodoland. The situation may get worse then.

For 12 long years, Tarun Gogoi was not only the undisputed leader of the Congress party in Assam, but also a chief minister who had not a single finger pointed against him. But this week when he announced that the AICC had cleared a proposal for an alliance with the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), the balloon suddenly burst. - A dangerous threshold has been crossed, until now, Gogoi was resisting the bangladeshi AIUDF, but now Sonia has pressurised him to accept the bangladeshi mullah party
