Sadou Asom Goria Moria Deshi Jatiya ParishadGuwahati, November 14, 2014: More than 500 All BTC Minority Students Union (ABMSU) on Thursday staged a demonstration against the anti-social elements who are trying to bring division in the society in the name of religion and slammed the state government for its failure in check the violence and illegal activities in the state that have increased in recent time.

“We want to live peacefully and we want development. We condemn all the anti-social elements including Islamic fundamentalists and alleged Jehadi elements which seem to be increasing in the state. We appeal to the government to identify all such elements and take necessary steps to rid the state of this,” ABMSU general secretary Lafiqul Islam Ahmed said.

ABMSU also submitted a memorandum to the chief minister citing various demands, including that the Home department should find out all educational institutes supposed to be providing training of alleged jehadi activities at Madrassas.

“We do want that a proper investigation should be in place to find out if illegal activities are going on at Madrassas. But overall students should not be harassed in the name of investigation and the issue should not be generalized,” Ahmed said.

The students’ body that represents the minority students of Bodoland Territorial Areas District (BTAD) also expressed its concern at the increasing presence of Hindu fundamentalist groups such as the RSS, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Bajrang Dal.

“We are worried that these elements can spoil the peace and harmony of the state. The government should be careful of these elements as well. We also appeal to the government to bring peace in BTAD as several banned militant outfits have been creating trouble in the area,” he said and urged the government to take proper care of the victims of various violence and riots, which have hit the BTAD area over several decades.

Meanwhile, Sadou Asom Goria Moria Deshi Jatiya Parishad (SAGMDJP) burnt effigies of BJP MP Ramen Deka for his alleged statement against Islam. The activists of SAGMDJP demanded that the BJP MP should be booked for his communal statement which is against the integrity of the country.
