Retired Indian soldier accused of being an illegal Bangladeshi after 30 years of service
Assam police have accused a retired Indian Army soldier of being an illegal migrant from Bangladesh after he served the nation for 30 long years. According to the NDTV, the foreigners’ tribunal of the country will hear the matter on October 13. The accused Mohd Azmal Haque retired as a Junior Commissioned Officer last year and now lives in Chayyagaon, 70 km away from Guwahati, with his family. "I am very sad, I cried a lot. My soul is broken ...  After 30 years of service I have to face such an insult," Azmal told NDTV. "If I were an illegal Bangladeshi, how could I serve the Indian army?" he added. Police verification is a must when someone joins the army, and it was conducted in his case too, Azmal said. Azmal’s wife Mumtaz Begum also faced a similar allegation against her back in 2012. The couple had to submit all of their documents to the tribunal court to prove their citizenship. "We produced all of our documents at the tribunal court at that time. They declared her a proper Indian citizen," he said. Assam had six Muslim majority districts in 2001, which grew to as many as nine districts within a decade. Infiltration is a major issue in the state. However, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) promised to end the illegal immigration when it came to power last year. The accusation has been vastly criticised on social media. Assam police were not available for any comment regarding the incident.
