While various organizations, students of Assam have intensified their protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill across the state, an Assam BJP MLA claimed that the anti-CAB groups are being backed by the Bangladeshi Muslim fundamentalist groups.
Assam BJP MLA Shiladitya Dev said, “The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is now just being opposed by few organizations backed by the Bangladeshi Muslim fundamentalist groups. They are being funded by them. They are being supported by them. Even they are giving manpower also on the streets.”
Shiladitya Dev said that the agenda of the Bangladeshi Muslims are very clear that they want to convert Assam into a Muslim majority state. This was happening since 1936 when Mohammed Sadullah was the Prime Minister of Assam and it failed in various occasions, but still today they are with the same agenda of converting Assam into a Muslim majority state.
“They are supporting the present National Register of Citizens (NRC) where they have already found their names by using all fake papers, documents and they are objecting the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. Because the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, it does not allow any Muslim from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to come and settle in India and get citizenship as well,” the Assam BJP MLA said.
He further said that, it is a big agenda, blueprint and they are using some intellectuals of India, using social media to oppose the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.
“We the Assamese understand it very clearly that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill has to come. Because, we have to stop the massive illegal Bangladeshi Muslim infiltration going on in Assam, which is destroying our culture, changed the demography of the entire state,” Shiladitya Dev said.
The Union cabinet had recently cleared the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and the government is all set to pass the bill in the ongoing winter session of the parliament.
