New Delhi. Muslim Organization of India (MSO), the largest organization of Muslim students of India, has filed a petition in the Supreme Court of India in National Register of Citizens case. MSO seek relief in the reconsideration of citizenship of 4 million people in the NRC (National Citizen Register) of Assam. The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the petition on the issue.
MSO National President Shujaat Ali Quadri said that the NRC (National Register of Citizenship) is plotting to expel the people of their own country, which is dangerous for internal security of the country. Shujaat Ali Quadri raised the question that a father living in the same house is considered an Indian citizen, while the son is being labeled as outsider. Quadri wonders how the name of the people who have contested the assembly elections, when NRC is missing from the list, how can it be considered true?
Seven agencies, including the Indian government, have been granted notices in this case. In the litigation, the Muslim Students Organization has demanded from the Supreme Court that there have been huge disturbances in the documenting of NRC. This has created a man-made problem. The last draft of National Citizen Register (NRC) in Assam was released on July 30, 2018. In order to get involved in this, 3.29 crore people had applied in Assam, out of which 40.07 lakh applicants were not available. MSO says that four million people should get an opportunity to prove their citizenship because the former President and the former Chief Minister of Assam did not even get a place in the list, which is enough to prove that the bureaucracy did not worked as per the wishes of the Supreme Court.
Shujaat Quadri said this issue is being made against Muslims, whereas NRC list affected many Hindu and other religions classes. Shujaat Ali Qadri has made it clear that the MSO will fight for justice for all those affected in the NRC list whatever their faith is.
MSO Vice President Shahbaz Misbahi said that NRC affected people will get justice. The constitution gives every citizen its right and the Supreme Court is considered to be the patron of the Constitution, in the purview, we have hope that justice will get from the court. Shahbaz Misbahi asked the media citing the news. After all, this is a list which is the name of the people of the family of former President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed. In fact, it was reported last week that the name of Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed’s grandson in the NRC list is also included in the NRC list.
It is important to know that Assam is the first state where NRC is being updated after 1951 to include the names of Indian nationals. The first draft of the NRC was released on December 31 and January 1, in which there were 1.9 million people.
After the reports of infiltration of Bangladeshis in Assam, the Supreme Court asked to update the NRC. The first register was released in 1951. This register is the certificate of resident of Assam. There have been many big and violent agitations in Assam on this issue. After the partition in 1947, the people of Assam continued to move to East Pakistan. All Assam Students Union raised their voice against Intruders in Assam In 1979. All Assam Students Union campaigned against the intruders. In 1985, the Rajiv Gandhi government entered into an agreement with Asom Gana Parishad. Under this, whatever Bangladeshi enters Assam before 1971, they will be given citizenship of India.
