New Delhi, Nov 04 (KMS): Raising its voice against Bharatiya Janata Party’s hate hilled propaganda against minorities particularly Muslims in India, their eviction from homes and demolition of madrassas, All BTC Minority Students’ Union (ABMSU), staged a protest at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi.
A group of 400 protesters, raised slogans against Himanta Biswa Sarma, Chief Minister of Indian state of Assam, for his anti Muslim policies.
Addressing the protesters, Taison Hussain, general secretary of ABMSU said that the students union is concerned of the majoritarian politics of BJP government in Assam for victimizing over 10 million Muslims in the state. He said that BJP leadership was not only spreading hatred against Muslims daily but also spitting venom against them on mainstream and social media. Taison Hussain was of the view that such tactics by Assam government were isolating Muslims further.
The AMBSU quoting state Assembly data pointed out that since Himanta Biswa Sarma became chief minister of Assam in May last year, the state government has evicted over 4,449 families mostly Muslims from their homes making them homeless.
The protesters also raised the issue of the madarasa demolition in the state citing the recent demolition of a madrassa is another attack on the religious identity of Muslims living in the state.
