Not Kiren Rijiju, The Congress Generated The ‘Controversy’ With Its Hindu State Remark For Arunachal

Published on 13 February, 2017 at 9:30 pm By

The media on Monday used the word “controversy” for a tweet that Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju shared. All the headlines focussed on Rijiju’s tweet. None of them cared to look into the reason why the minister made the remark.

The truth is that Rijiju was merely reacting to a report which said that Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee was blaming BJP of “converting Arunachal into a Hindu state”.

In fact, Rijiju is not wrong at all about the condition of minorities in countries such as Pakistan and Bangladesh. Those who do not know what is happening to Hindus, Christians, Shias and Ahmediyyas in the two countries are either living under a rock or have ulterior motives.

Rijiju then slammed the Congress for making “provocative remarks”.

 


He is right. By deliberately trying to create communal tension where there isn’t any, the Arunachal wing of the Congress is indulging in a practice that has been mastered by the party ever since the British left – divide and rule.

The media reported that Congress objected to his “conversion” remark. Whether or not the “conversion” part holds any merit is another debate, but there is no reason to call Rijiju’s comment as “controversial” while ignoring the obviously communal claim made by the Congress.

As for a reality check, Assam Minister of Finance, Education and Health Himanta Biswa Sarma shed more light on the matter on Monday.

When asked to comment on Rijiju’s remark, Sarma said that conversion is not Assam’s problem but at the same time he pointed to the biggest problem of all – illegal immigration.

Sarma said that the huge influx from Bangladesh is changing the demography of Assam and local population is going down.

Sarma is not wrong. Assam shares a 262-km-long border with Bangladesh. Many of Assam’s bordering districts have witnessed an unusual growth in the numbers of the Muslim population which has been attributed to uncheck illegal immigration through the porous border in some places.
