Guwahati, Aug 10 (UNI) At a time when minority groups are protesting any plausible harassment of genuine Muslim Indian citizens while detection and deportation of illegal Bangladeshis in Assam, a Muslim youth organisation today called upon all Muslim citizens to tolerate uneasy questions for saving the indigenous identity of the state.
'' Our Muslim brothers should be ready to tolerate occasional harassment in the name of detection of illegal Bangladeshi migrants in the greater interest of protection of identity of indigenous population in Assam that is reeling under demographic invasion from Bangladesh,'' Muslim Yuba Parishad, Asom, (MYPA) president Rohmosa Ali and General Secretary Mujibur Rahma said here.
They maintained that it was nothing unusual that some genuine Indian citizens from the minority community might face uncomfortable questions in the process of detection of illegal Bangladeshis, but that should not be a deterrent to the legal procedure.
Criticising the organisations that were attaching undue importance to plausible harassment of genuine Indian minority citizens during the detection process, the MYPA leaders said,'' Such attitude is unfortunate, motivated and communal.'' They also urged the government to set up a special branch of Assam police for detection and deportation of illegal Bangladeshis and called upon the indigenous Muslim population to come forward in detection of illegal migrants.
