Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

‘Bangladeshis may outnumber Arunachalees’

Press Trust of India

Itanagar, August 22: The number of illegal Bangladeshi migrants is increasing in Arunachal Pradesh, threatening the demographic composition of the state, Secretary of Ramakrishna Mission Hospital, Swami Vishwaatmananda has said

Nearly 15 to 20 per cent of patients treated at the mission's hospital here were illegal Bangladeshi migrants, he told a public meeting here last evening.

"If the trend continues, the Arunachalees would lose their culture and identity soon and they would become a minority in their own land," he said.

Vishwaatmananda said divisive forces were encouraging people to cross over to India illegally with ulterior motive.

Former BJP state unit President Taba Hare and other speakers at the function appealed to the people to unite and see to it that illegal Bangladeshi migrants did not get shelter in Arunachal after being driven out of Assam.
