Anjuman Minhaj-E Rasool charges BJP, Trinamool Congress over NRC draft issue

Anjuman Minhaj-E Rasool, an Islamic organization working for peace and communal harmony, today charged the BJP, Trinamool Congress and AIUDF of doing politics over the NRC issue.

"BJP and AIUDF are trying to do politics over the NRC issue. Mamata Banerjee and her party has own agenda. We do not support that and condemn them. Assamese people have rejected them by remaining peaceful in this time," Anjuman Minhaj-E Rasool president, Maulana Syed Athar Dehlavi said here.

Addressing a press conference here, he said the National Register of Citizens (NRC) is being updated under the direct supervision of the Supreme Court and the document is purely secular in nature.

"NRC is linked to national security. It is related with citizen's rights. Nobody should do politics with it. If someone does it, then action should be taken," Dehlavi said.

He alleged that BJP president Amit Shah was trying to politicise the matter by commenting that those not finding their names in the complete draft of NRC are "ghusbaithiya" (infiltrators) and they will be deported from India.

"When the Supreme Court and NRC State Coordinator Prateek Hajela is saying that nobody can term the excluded people as infiltrators, then why did he say so? Now they are talking about doing NRC in every state. I suggest, they do it in Tripura first as the demography of that state has distorted most," Dehlavi said.

He said all the illegal foreigners living in India should be deported after proper verification process irrespective of their religious identities, while no genuine Indians should be left out of the final NRC.

Dehlavi appealed to the NRC authority to correct the errors or mistakes detected in the complete draft of NRC while publishing the final document.

Altogether, 2,89,83,677 persons were found to be eligible for inclusion in the complete draft of the NRC, which was published on July 30, out of a total 3,29,91,384 applicants, thereby excluding the names of 40,07,707 people.
