New Delhi, Jan 25: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has filed a charge sheet against five Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, Bangladesh operatives in connection with the Barpeta case.
The NIA has charged Hafizur Rahman (A-1), Yakub Ali (A-2), Sariful Islam (A-3), Mustafizur Rahman (A-5) and Md. Hafiz Safikul Islam under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the Arms Act.
Investigation has revealed that the accused persons are trained members of JMB, a proscribed terrorist organisation in India and Bangladesh. Accused persons were recruited by one Sahanur Alom of Barpeta District.
If one looks into the nature of the protests that have taken place, one can see a deliberate attempt to put Hindus in bad light; all this for the sake of CAA which only seeks to offer a sense of belonging to those minorities who have fled Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan
Barely two days after Islamist goons attacked the Nankana Sahib in Pakistan, a Sikh was shot dead at Peshawar on Sunday.
The 25-year-old Sikh youth has been identified as Rowinder Singh. He had arrived at Peshawar from the Shangla district in Khyber Paktunkhwa to shop for his wedding. This heart wrenching incident comes in the wake of scores from the Left protesting the newly amended citizenship law, which only aims at giving a home to the religiously persecuted from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
New Delhi, Jan 05: The sudden rise in the rise of Bangladeshis being arrested in Bangladesh could just be the beginning of a major exodus. At least 450 persons have been arrested by the Bangladesh police when they crossed over from India.
Most of the reverse migration is taking place by those who have settled in South India. These are the newer illegal migrants, who have come to India and have no documents.
New Delhi, Jan 02: Bangladesh has restored telecom services along the border. It may be recalled that the telecom regulator of Bangladesh had ordered operators to shut down services along the border.
The order came in the wake of India citing security reasons. “Please reinstate operations of the BTS (Base Trans-Receiver Stations) near the Bangladesh-India border sites immediately,” an email to the BRTC read.
While we talk about the protests and the amended citizenship law, we should not forget the pain of the persecuted minorities in Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan
The violence around the citizenship law is a classic case of what a fake narrative by a desperate opposition can do. While the reckless protesters destroy public property, does even one person take a moment to try and feel the pain of the persecuted minorities in Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan?
Should these persons who have been abused, tortured and raped live like second rate citizens in India as well. The Citizenship (Amendment) Act has come as a blessing to these persons, who will finally have a home that they can call theirs.
New Delhi, Dec 17: In the wake of the ongoing protests regarding the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, the Ministry of Home Affairs has clarified that migrants of the six faiths who came down to India on or before December 31 2014 will not become Indian citizens automatically.
A Home Ministry official told OneIndia that the citizenship will be awarded after the competent authority makes an assessment and certifies that such persons fulfil all the requirements for registration or naturalisation as Indian citizens.
New Delhi, Dec 12: The foreign minister of Bangladesh A K Abdul Momen has reportedly cancelled his visit to India.
This decision comes a day after Momen said that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill could weaken India’s historic character as a secular nation and rejected the allegations that the minorities are facing religious persecution in his country.
