Muslim threats, nationalist fantasies and the 'Great Assam Exodus'

"Violence in Assam is localised with its particular history and context," human rights activist Lenin Raghuvanshi told AsiaNews.

However, for Raghuvanshi, who is director of the People's Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR), such conflicts "have repercussions that explode in internal conflicts fuelled by the nationalism of fascist forces."

In his view, "India's greatest threat is an internal exodus provoked by internal nationalist groups (supporters of the Hindutva ideology) or external groups like Muslim fundamentalists.",-nationalist-fantasies-and-the-%27Great-Assam-Exodus%27-25602.html

Dear Sir, 

I want to bring in your kind attention towards the news published in the siasat daily Bodos, Muslim Communal Riots in Assam, 19 killed on 23 July, 2012 and in Reuters Ethnic riots sweep on Assam, at least 30 killed on 25 July, 2012. (detail news is enclosed as annexure)

Therefore it is a kind request please take appropriate action at earliest and ensure the justice, security and compensation to the victim.

  1. NHRC should send its team to conduct a inquiry 
  2. To provide compensation  to the deceased family
  3. To provide psycho - social support to the survivors in relief camp through testimonial therapy. IfNHRC is willing PVCHR will send the team of therapists from our NATT member organization Barak Human Rights Protection Committee (BHRPC), Silchar, Assam
  4. To provide all essential amenities to the survivors in relief camp.
Thanking You 

Sincerely Yours
