Aligarh, 4 May-2014,Abdul Kalam Azad: Students of Aligarh Muslim University extend their helping hands towards the aggrieved and suffered people across the country. In protest to the current political genocide and mass killing of innocent Muslims in Assam (Bodoland Territorial Autonomous Districts), the student fraternity of AMU observed a “PEACE MARCH’’ by lighting candles in the campus starting from Maulana Azad Library to Bab-e Syed. Students condemn the unfortunate gruesome genocide of hapless Muslims in Assam by tribal Bodo Militant groups with impunity and political handiwork.
This heinous crime against humanity and human rights is being carried out tacitly over the years through complicity of local administration under the very nose of the regional state government.
The students strongly condemn the failure of State govt to provide security to the minorities in the BTAD area. Through this Peace March, the students express their deep condolence for the departed souls in this ethnic violence against Muslims.
In the Peace March, the students put some demands by demonstrating placards and through a memorandum which was handed over to the Deputy Proctor of AMU.
The students demand the institution of an SIT headed by a serving IPS Officer or Supreme Court judge for the investigation and the prosecution of the real conspirators.
The deployment of Paramilitary forces to ensure security of the Muslims is demanded as the state police and other security forces have miserably failed to provide security.
The students also demand the arrest and prosecution of Pramila Rani Brahma, legislator of BPF
(Congress ally), who made a very mischievous and communally provocative statement saying that the
Muslims of BTAD did not vote for the BPF candidate for Lok Sabha, Chandan Brahma, which ignited the violence.
The compensation to the family of deceased and to the injured people and proper rehabilitation of victims displaced by the violence are strongly demanded.The Illegal arms and ammunitions should be seized from the BTAD Area without any failure.
Students also added in their demands that the BTAD Accord should be revisited where all the communities have equal rights.
At last the students demand the restoration of peace and harmony in the affected area where all the Non-Bodos feel secure and homely.
