Refugee Rights: Assam
On the 30th of July, the final draft of The National Register of Citizens was published, excluding four million people from citizenship. Whats even more worrying is how the rest of India is reacting to the NRC, whilst Jharkhand plans a ‘citizens register to weed out Bangladeshis and Rohingyas’, BJP’s Telangana MLA Raja Singh went out to publicly announce that, “If these Rohingyas and Bangladeshi illegal immigrants do not leave India respectfully, then they should be shot and eliminated”. As fascism becomes more and more normalised within India and other regions wanting to implement the NRC, where does that leave Bengalis/Bangladeshis and other minorities within India. Where do you go when your home doesn't want you?
