Silchar, June 18: Amra Bangali, a radical Bengali political party, at its 3 day 11th triennial convention held at Shankar Duttagupta Nagar, Zila Parishad Guest House, Koochbehar, chronicled the history of atrocities upon Bengalis who have been residing across the various states of the country. Bengalis have always been neglected and subjected to various kinds of atrocities. Despite the richness, affluence and sweetness of the language, non Bengalis have always tried to pin down the language. The rich culture, language, tradition and custom of Bengali have not been allowed to spread and bloom. Ashab Uddin MLA, Jiribam in Manipur, graced the convention as its chief guest.
It is a pity that the existence of Hindu Bengalis of Asam is now at stake. Amra Bangali feels that the proposed Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016 is nothing but a ploy, a conspiracy to oust Bengalis from the state of Assam. Non Bengalis residing in the other states of the country are suffering from untold miseries, sorrows and sufferings. Bengali as a language is on the threshold of extinction. The uncomfortable congeniality, as stated in a press-release by Amra Bangali recently, between Hindi and Urdu and the growing interference into Bengali language, culture, tradition, education, literature, commerce, business and employment opportunities have pushed it to the periphery.
There is a preconceived notion that a Bengali is a Bangladeshi and hence they should be thrown from this country. Such misconceptions are being entertained by the people at large. In Assam along with other northeastern states and other states of the country in which Bengalis are residing, they are been forced to stay as a liability. In fact, Bengalis are an asset to the country and its development. In this regard, Amra Bangali has resolved to stand by these hapless and helpless Bengalis. This information was shared at a press-release by the secretaries of the central committee of Amra Bangali, Tarapada Biswas and Bokul Chandra Roy.
