5548 Bighas of religious land of 26 Satra (Vaishnava Prayer Complex) in Assam encroached by Muslim migrants: Report.
Assam in an Islamic deadline?
By Upananda Brahmachari.
04 Aug 2012 | Guwahati :: Everybody blame on situation. Nobody finds the truth. A neo Islamic invasion in various forms captures Assam day by day to establish a Kashmir in this north eastern state in India. Islamic politics, Muslim appeasement, Bangladeshi Influx, Jihadi Militancy and Satra Encroachment all are put in the bed o Assam to destabilize the land under a definite Islamic design.
Through a breakthrough revelation it is found that Newly formed United Muslim National Army (UMNA) might be behind the ethnic clashes in Bodoland Territorial Administered Districts (BTAD) in lower Assam that claimed 56 lives, thousand injured and lakhs of people displaced recently. The former militant outfit Bodoland Liberation Tigers(BLT) alleged this new theory on Wednesday over the recent Indigenous Assam (Bodo) people vs the illegal Muslim migrants from neighbouring Bangladesh.
Jonomohan Mushahary, chairman of the now defunct BLT Welfare Society, alleged that UMNA was created in June 15 this year and was behind last month’s violence with support from All Assam Minority Students’ Union (AAMSU)and All Bodoland Minority Students’ Union (ABMSU).
UMNA, he claimed, is headed by policeman Ramjan Islam alias Mohibul Islam alias Ratul who was planning to destabilize BTAD and form a ‘Muslim Land’ including 13 districts of Assam upto Golaghat.
Mushahary urged the government to maintain a strict watch over the activities of AAMSU and ABMSU and asked all organisations to strive for permanent peace in BTAD. He also warned political leaders not to play politics on this sensitive issue.
He demanded immediate update of the National Register of Citizens with March 25, 1971 as cut-off date and early distribution of land deeds so that the rehabilitation of the people could be done on its basis.`
He also urged the government to probe the statement by pro-talk ULFA leader Mrinal Hazarika that a boat carrying arms had crossed the Brahmaputra river from Bangaldesh.
”Hazarika said two more boats are on the way. The government must investigate this. It is a serious matter”, he added.
After the clash when the indigenous Bodo people gallantly defused the Islamic conspiracy to encroach Bodo dominated lands, the perfume Barron and All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) president Badruddin Ajmal Qasmi demanded to defunct BTC (Bodoland Territorial Council). As such it is proved that the Muslims of Assam have been helping the settlement of Bangladeshi Muslims to gave a Muslim majority by any means even through deploying Muslim rioters upon the peace loving indigenous Bodo people.
All on a sudden the sympathies of illegal migrant Muslims from Bangladesh have reached to Assam land to run relief works with a certain aim to fuel Muslim militant outfits of Assam. A huge relief fund is being collected to run relidef and subversive activities by an Muslim Organization named Markazul Ma’arif Education and Research Centre at Palton Road, Opp Crawford Market, Mumbai-400 001 and Main Road, Hojai, PIN – 782435.
Notorious MIM (Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen) president Asaduddin Owaisi is bound to lead a relief team on Friday (03/08/2012) to Assam which has recently witnessed unprecedented violence and dislocation of lakhs of people. Owaisi along with a team of 11 doctors and two paramedics will visit Dhubri district in Assam.
“Within five days of intense violence over 4.5 lakh people were displaced. The official death toll was about 50. While the relief workers still can’t reach refugee camps, the affected people in Assam need every possible help to overcome their sufferings,” Owaisi told TOI adding that he had visited the ethnic violence-hit state recently. On his return to Hyderabad he announced Rs. 1.25 crore worth of relief material for the affected people. He also met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh along with Badruddin Ajmal, MP and president of the All India United Democratic Front in Assam and briefed him about the conditions of the affected population. “The people of Assam are going through a rare phase in their history. As a matter o fact MIM and AIUDF are jointly maneuvering a definite Jihad in Assam with syphoning a huge amount of money in Assam to help the subversive Muslim groups.
Both the Ajmal and Owaisi told that the 90% victims are Muslims. As per statistics there are 9,57,064 voters in total in Kokrajhar and the total Muslim voters is 1,84,441. The Muslim organisations and the fundamental Muslim leaders are always referring 3-6 lakhs victims in recent Kokrajhar riot. Then from where these three to six lakh population came within the riot prone areas. This question has also been raised by Women Right activist Anjali Daimary, who is the president of Bodo Women Justice Forum (BWJF).
Assam is now under the claws of Islamic demon. This demon can only be clamped by a sustainable resurgence of Indigenous spirit of Unity and Patriotism with Traditional valour of Ahom , Bodo, Kamta people and so on.
Our Assam correspondent B Paul informed that the Muslim organisations of Assam have been unified under an unidentified banner like Assam Muslim Parishad to encroach economic, political and demographical power from the sons of the soil, i.e. Ahom people by their nefarious design. Already, 27 districts in Assam, 11 of them are going to be Muslim majority districts once the 2011 census figures, religion-wise, are likely to be published by the census authorities in some days.
In a very cunning manner the traditional Vaishnava Sankirtan Places, Satra lands have been encroached by the illegal Muslim immigrantsfrom Bangladesh under the nose of present Congress Govt. in Assam.
An astounding 5,548 bighas of land belonging to 26 satras is allegedly under encroachment by illegal settlers, most of whom comprise Muslim immigrants from Bangladesh. There is also the growing problem of religious aggression by Christian missionaries who are converting poor, disadvantaged people to Christianity with promises of a better life and opportunities, they alleged.
An investigative report on ‘Satra Land Encroachment’ by Northeast Policy Institute (NPI) has found Alipukhuri Patekibori Than to be the worst affected with 65 bighas, one katha and 12 lecha under encroachment out of the total land of 76 bighas, three kathas and two lechas.
The Satra Study Committee, comprising four members, including chairman of Indian Art History Congress Dr Rabin Deva Chaudhury, Mukul Chandra Barkakoti and Dr Prafulla Kumar Nath and Kusum Kumar Mahanta, visited the different satras across the state, took video recordings, photographs and interviews of satras and satradhikars to learn the extent of the problem.
Releasing the study report on 13th July, 2012 at Guwahati, Deva Chaudhury said the problem of encroachment of satra land goes back to the post independence days when people from erstwhile East Pakistan came to Assam. However, the fact that encroachment is still a persistent reality is a violation of the directives of the High Court and the Revenue Board.
Most of the Satra lands have been encroached for the purpose of settlements of Bangladeshi Muslims, establishment of Muslim Markets, Mosques and Madrashas. In some places Govt grants have been utilized for Muslim rehabilitation.
The satras were founded in the 15th century by Saint Sankardeva and his disciples Madhavdeva and subsequently by other Vaishnava gurus to propagate the monotheistic philosophy of neo-Vaishnavism in Assam.
Dhubri Ramrai Kutir Satra’s Satradhikar (head man), Sri Jitendra Nath Pradhani said a large portion of the land the government had granted to the satras after India’s independence are under the control of encroachers who not only stop at grabbing lands but has also taken to theft, dacoities, rapes, murders and other heinous crimes. “Several satras like the Ramrai Kuti, Bishnupur, Damodar, Rangapani, Dharampur in the districts of Goalpara and Dhubri, Samaria, Suntoli, Goroimari, Koimari, Kolakhuwa, Barpeta, Patbausi, Sundoridia, Jonia, Bohori satras, Bordowa, Patekibori, Kobaikota, Rampur, Balisatra in the districts of Nagaon and Morigaon have most of their lands under encroachment,” he said.
|Name of Satras||Size of encroached land||Name of Districts|
|Bardua Satra||283 Bighas||Nagaon|
|Bali Satra||462 Bighas||Nagaon|
|Rampur Satra||584 Bigha||Morigaon|
|Adi Alengi Satra||450 Bigha||Lakhimpur|
|Bapupara Satra||110 Bigha||Goalpara|
|Vishnupur Satra||161 Bigha||Goalpara|
|Ramrai Kuthi Satra||1000 Bigha||Dhubri|
|Simalabari Satra||195 Bigha||Bangaigaon|
|Barpeta Satra||460 Bigha||Barpeta|
|Kobaikata Satra||120 Bighas||Nagaon|
|Alipukhuri Satra||186 Bighas||Morigaon|
Besides, due to certain apparent ambiguity in the government’s land policy, even in a place like Majuli, considered as the centre of Vaishnavite culture,permission has been granted for construction of church. Added to that, the vote bank politics, indulged in by political parties is doing great harm to the future of the state’s rich culture and the Assamese society as a whole.
After Kashmir, Assam may be the second land where Hindus and indigenous people are waiting for a harrowing situation through which they have to find new land or refugee camps in another part of India, certainly not in Assam.
