Protect ‘persecuted’ non-Muslim minorities from Pakistan, Bangladesh : RSS

Mohan Bhagwat

Silchar : RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has asked Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal to ensure that non-Muslims who fled religious persecution in Bangladesh and Pakistan on or before December 31, 2014, are exempted from the provisions of the Foreigners Act in accordance with a Union home ministry notification issued on September 7, 2015.

Bhagwat, who is visiting the Barak Valley, had a closed-door meeting with Sonowal at the RSS office in Silchar on Saturday. Their 25-minute discussion centred on the Centre’s proposal to reintroduce the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, to protect Hindu, Sikh, Christian, Jain, Parsi and Buddhist refugees excluded from the National Register of Citizens, sources said.

RSS, BJP and various Sangh Parivar affiliates have taken up cudgels on behalf of around 19 lakh people left out of the NRC, saying they are mostly Bengali Hindu migrants whose families fled the erstwhile East Pakistan to escape religious persecution.

Bhagwat and several BJP leaders have said on various occasions that the 2015 home ministry notification should be followed till such time the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is passed in Parliament.
