GUWAHATI, Sept 3: The Patriotic People’s Front of Assam (PPFA) expresses serious concern over the recent commul outbursts glorifying a militant outfit soon after an incident involving a few SULFA members in gaon of central Assam. It has urge the authority to investigate the matter properly and thoroughly for taking appropriate actions against those responsible for flaring commul tensions.
The forum has carefully observed that a section of State intellectuals, writers, social activists and some jourlists have tried their best to misinterpret the gaon incident, where a groups of youths were humiliated by another group of businessmen relating to some dotions on August 24, 2017, as a fit case against outsiders’ domition over the locals. “Their attempt to colour this incident must be condemned by all right thinking people of the state. They tried to instigate a commul disturbance by cleverly avoiding the information that the group of businessmen, which insulted the visiting youth represented different communities. The irresponsible campaigners even made early resolutions that Hindu Bengalis would never mingle with locals in the State,” said a statement issued by the PPFA. “This is unfortute to say the least that a group of people is trying to mislead people by misrepresenting facts,” the Forum said.
The forum, while appreciating the common people of the State for not listening to how these groups of instigators tried to indulge in misadventure to commulize the society and glamorize the ULFA, expressed shock that the BJP-led Government in the State did not show any urgency to respond to the crisis.
“It took the State Home Minister three days to comment on the incident and how people were misled. What is even more disturbing is that he avoided using strong words against those who publicly threatened to take up arms and the few people who openly demonstrated their inclition to separatist ULFA (I) leader Paresh Barua,” commented the forum.
The PPFA also urged the State Government to initiate delivering justice to the victims of insurgencies and compensate them adequately.
