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.

BJP flays Centre for NE infiltration

DH News Service Agartala:

The BJP on Monday criticised the Congress-led UPA government for its failure to check illegal migrants and fundamentalist forces in the Northeastern region.

Addressing the media, BJP Northeastern Regional Secretary V Satish welcomed Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gagoi’s statement over the issue and said Mr Gagoi has finally understood the problem of growing Islamic fundamentalism in the region.

Mr Satish expressed concern over influx of migrants from Bangladesh and alleged that Islamic fundamentalists in the region were trying to turn it into an Islamic country. “The issue is sensitive as it involves minority sentiment and the religious angle,” he said.

Lambasting the UPA government, Mr Satish said both the Left and the Congress were going slow on the infiltration issue with an eye on vote bank. Referring to Tripura, he said the Left front has already enrolled the names of a few thousand Bangladeshis on the voters’ list.

Mr Gagoi had written to the prime minister voicing his concern over the activities of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Harkat-ul-Jehadi Al-Islam and a couple of other lesser-known jihadi outfits in his state.

Sharing Mr Gagoi’s view, Mr Satish demanded a uniform law to contain illegal migration in the Northeast. He also threatened to launch a movement against this.
