Activities of Prabajan Virodhi Manch-Release of our film Assam-The Silent Genocide release in Delhi on 10 April 2015

Dear Friends,


Subject: Illegal Infiltration From Bangladesh—What Private Initiative Can Do.


Some months back, we had shared with you a brief account of what grand work was being done by a private organisation in Assam to identify illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. The movement was led by a Supreme Court lawyer, Shri Upamanyu Hazarika.

Upamanyu has now come up with a detailed account of the progress made (attached). It is worth reading all through. As he says, “I have been appointed as Court Commissioner by the Supreme Court to inspect the Indo-Bangla border to assess the status of infrastructure to prevent infiltration, which report has already been filed with the Supreme Court and has been well received.”

In his own way, Upamanyu feels it has been a story of “Assam—The Silent Genocide”, on which a 30-minute long documentary, in Assamese and In English has been prepared and has been put on You Tube.

Some of the issues involved in updating the National Population Register are:


(i) Grant of citizenship by birth to children of illegal migrants born in India/ Assam after 24 March 1971, which is upto 03 December 2004 under the Citizenship Act. Citizenship by birth to children of illegal migrants regardless whether parents were citizen or foreigners is a big challenge, it is only after 03 December 2004 the citizenship by birth is granted only if both parents are citizens. Our demand being that the cut-off date of 03 December 2004, only after which citizenship by birth is granted requiring both parents to be citizens should be shifted and aligned with 24 March 1971, the cut-off date for conferring citizenship on Bangladeshi.

(ii) Otherwise according to the rate of growth of population upto 2001, Hindus become a minority in Assam by 2040.


Friends, we have further heard that the apex court has since directed the Centre and the State of Assam to complete the process of identifying the illegal immigrants from Bangladesh within a period of two months.

Let us as hope these will go a long way towards solving this vexed problem, which has more to do with socio-economic issues than normally believed or understood. The success achieved proved the old-saying, “While There Is A Will, There Is A Way”.



Your sevak,


D.C. Nath
