Indian government under the leadership of Narendra Modi has made preparations to deport Muslims in the Indian state of Assam.
After changing the special status of occupied Kashmir and oppressing the non-Kashmiris, the Modi government exposed a new plan against the Muslim residents of India.
A final list of citizens has been released in Assam, which includes more than 31 million people, while around 1.9 million people, including Muslims, have been excluded from the list. Four months time for appeal is given to those citizens who are deprived of citizenship.
According to Indian media, the National Register of Citizens (NRC) is being updated on the directions of the Supreme Court and it is illegally deporting citizens who came in the state of Assam on or after March 25, 1971 while the NRC’s list includes the names of those who have been able to prove that they arrived in Assam on or before March 24, 1971.
According to Indian media, citizens of Assam have been asked to document their family connection and those who failed to file the documents were counted as illegal migrants.
The Indian government’s registration process has been subject to severe criticism and it has been declared as a crackdown on minorities in Assam.
According to media reports, people who are deprived of citizenship can appeal to tribunals and special courts in this regard, while they have also been granted the right to appeal in the High Court and the Supreme Court.
