Chief Minister Himanta Sarma blames the secular people for Assam becoming a hotbed of Islamic Fundamentalists.
Chief Minister alleged that the People Front of India (PFI), has developed an ‘ecosystem’ in the state, in which terror modules located in Bangladesh and linked to the Al Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) are being ‘garnered’.
While addressing a press conference to elucidate details of a series of arrests in the past five months. There have been several arrests in the past few days alone, including the demolition of a Madarsa run by Mustafa Alias Mufti Mustafa.
According to the Chief Minister, ‘The state is becoming a hotbed of Islamic fundamentalists,’ I firmly believe that the Muslim population of the state will help us in this tussle, we have to scrutinize and inspect closely migrants who are teaching at the Madarsa.’
Mohammad Suman, a Bangladeshi national who migrated to Barpeta, Assam, in 2018, is among those detained since April. He is accused of being a member of the first module and working as an Imam at a nearby mosque.
He further added that he is not targeting anyone and seeks to protect the lawful citizens of the nation, and blamed the so-called secular people who try to victimise Muslims for creating a scenario in which organisations like PFI Ancash the victimhood.
Recently, in a probe, the Jamiul Huda Madrasa was demolished, under Disaster Management Act and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. This demolition came amid 11 people who were detained in a major crackdown in Assam for their alleged links with global terror outfits including AQIS and ABT.
