Al-Qaeda, ISI and JMB targeting Assam
Militant groups Al-Qaeda and Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh collectively with Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) are reportedly attempting to sow discontent in Assam, taking advantage of a dispute over citizenship rights in the region. “In a bid to scuttle the ongoing National Register of Citizens (NRC) update meant for Assam, Al-Qaeda and Pakistan’s ISI are planning to woo the Muslims of Lower Assam through a covert racket,” said a high official of the Assam Police’s intelligence branch on the strict condition of anonymity. The source also claimed that the racket has urged some 12 million Muslims of the area to hit the streets in protest on November 27, to claim their citizenship rights. The racket circulated this message via Whatsapp in Dhubri, South Salmara and Barak Valley of Assam. The source further claimed that, along with Kashmir, Al-Qaeda and ISI are targeting Assam. They are also trying to step up their activities in border districts such as Dhubri, South Salmara, Mankachar and Karimganj. They have reportedly tasked Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh to act on their behalf in this regard. However, the source also said that the state administration is not sitting idly. To take necessary steps to tackle this menace, a special team led by Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Mukesh Agarwal has been formed. The issue has also been brought to the cognisance of India’s Union Home Ministry. The Assam Gana Parishad (AGP), which forms a vital part of Assam’s coalition government led by the BJP, has long been vocally supporting the NRC update for the exclusion of illegal immigrants from the state. They have also threatened to pull out of the coalition if the NRC is not updated and if immigrants are not excluded from the state as per their demands.
