Various bodies support Muslims protesting in Haryana''s Nuh

Nuh (Haryana), Feb 17 (IANS) Several organisations on Monday said they have extended support to protesters sitting on a dharna for the past 19 days in minority-dominant Nuh district of Haryana against the controversial CAA and NPR.

The protest has been organised by Mewat Vikas Sabha and Mewat RTI Manch at Badkali Chowk under Ferozpur Jhirka police station against the Citizen (Amendment) Act and the National Registration of Citizens.

Extending the support of Akal India Peace Mission (AIPM) to the protesters, its national convener Daya Singh alleged that the Modi government''s wrong policies had put the Hindu-Muslim brotherhood in danger.

"In the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, when the then ruling government allowed the killing of Sikhs, a section of Muslims gave us shelter. Now, a similar situation has arisen for the Muslims. It is now our duty to protect and stand in solidarity with them," Singh said.

Tammana Pankaj, president of United Against Hate organisation, said that the Centre has not come out with even a single policy in public interest in the last six years.

Jagbir Fulia, district convener of Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar Mission, said that the the central government''s action with regard to CAA and NPR is an attack on the Constitution.

"Our fight from ''sadak se sansad'' will go on until the Modi government rolls back the CAA and dumps NRC. At present, 70 per cent farmers, Dalits and backward class people do not have documents. In this case, how would they prove their nationality?" Fulia asked.
