Jamaat-e-Islami offers free legal aid to those excluded from NRC list


Jamaat-e-Islami Hind JIH has decided to provide free legal aid to those who have been excluded from the final list of Assam NRC.

Expressing concern over the exclusion of nearly 20 lakh people from NRC, the Jamaat also opposed extending the exercise to other states. Addressing a press conference in the national capital, JIH vice-president S. Ameenul Hassan said, “We feel that many could not make it into the list because of minor inaccuracies in their documents. Jamaat will offer free legal aid to those excluded from NRC, irrespective of their religion, caste and creed.””We oppose extending the NRC process to other parts of the country.

The Govtshould focus on core issues of welfare and development,” he said.In response to a question, JIH secretary for community affairs, Malik Mohtasim Khan, said NRC list was a fitting reply to those who were saying that Assam has 40 lakh infiltrators. ” NRC is a relief to the people of Assam.

We demand that the Govt must provide reasons for exclusion in writing to those who could not find their names in this final list. We also expect that the Govtwill not render these nearly two million citizens ‘stateless’ as it will be very damaging for India’s image in the international community,” he said.When asked about the situation in Kashmir, JIH vice-president Mohammed Jafar said, “We are also concerned, as all the people of our country are, over the situation in Kashmir. It is the duty of the Govtto ensure that the basic human rights of people are granted.”Jafar said the Govt must restore normalcy in the state as soon as possible by withdrawing the heavy military presence, uplifting the communications blockade and restoring democracy by allowing popular Govtto come to power.theweek

Assam NRC: FIRs lodged against Coordinator Hajela for deliberate exclusion of ‘genuine citizens’


FIRs have been lodged in Guwahati and Dibrugarh against Prateek Hajela, the Coordinator for Assam’s NRC for deliberately excluding “genuine Indian” citizens from the updated citizens’ list.The first complaint was lodged on Sep 3 evening. Asom Garia-Maria Yuba Chhatra Parishad lodged the FIR at Guwahati’s Latasil Police Station for producing an expensive “farcical” document that left out many indigenous people. The organisation represents Garia and Maria, 2 categories of indigenous Assamese Muslims.“Final NRC is a bhekubhaona (farce) and a waste of time and resources. It is full of anomalies with three members of a family in and 2 members out, armed forces personnel excluded, one son in and another out despite using the same legacy data. This shouldn’t have happened at least to the original inhabitants of the State,” a spokesperson of the organisation said. The complaint against Hajela had been filed so that Govtprobed the entire process of NRC updating exercise, the spokesperson said.On September 4, Chandar Mazumdar, a member of All India Legal Aid Forum lodged an FIR against Hajela at a police station in Dibrugarh town. Mazumdar said NRC Coordinator had his family deliberately excluded from NRC.

All Assam Bengali Yuba-Chhatra Parishad has demanded his arrest and removal as the State NRC Coordinator for producing a “faulty” document that omits many “genuine Indians” and includes “foreigners”.“Over 90% people excluded from NRC are Hindus, and for this State Coordinator is solely responsible,” the association’s head Swapan Kumar Mandal said.thehindu
