New Delhi: The Meghalaya High Court has commented on a case related to the PRC (Permanent Resident Certificate). Justice SR Sen said that I want to make it clear that no one should try to make India a second Islamic country. He said that if this happens it would be the worst day for India and the world. I believe that PM Modi’s government will understand this thing.
He has said that till someone wants to stay in the state, he has the right to apply for a PRC (permanent resident certificate). In fact, Justice SR Sen gave this order on Amon Rana’s petition. Let us tell you that Amon Rana was denied to give the Native Certificate.
Justice Sen said that as long as someone is willing to stay in the state, he has the right to apply for the PRC. He said that Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Christians, Parsis, Khasi, Garo and Jaintia who have come to India and who have come to India from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. At the same time, the Central Government has taken necessary steps to bring the law for the benefit of the people of Indian origin who are living outside. The court hopes that the government will take care of this order in the historical perspective and protect the country and its people.
‘Mess in the NRC process’
Meghalaya High Court Justice SR Sen said that in my view the NRC process is a mess, because most of the foreigners became Indians and the original Indians were out of it.
He said that when the country was partitioned, the leaders fixed boundary lines without thinking about future generations and country’s interest. This has caused problems today. I appeal to the Hindus of Barak Valley and Assam Valley that they come together and meet together on the solution because our culture, tradition and religion are equal. We should not hate each other on the basis of language only.
Pakistan had declared itself as an Islamic country and then India should have been declared a Hindu Nation, which was divided on the basis of religion, but it remained a secular country. He said that this court hopes that the Indian government will take a conscious decision about Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis and Christians who have come from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.
In his order, he said that people of Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddha, Christian, Parsi religion are still harassed in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and there is no place for them to go. He also said that the Hindus who entered India during the partition, are also considered as foreigners. Which is illegal in my eyes and is against the principle of natural justice.
He said that India has achieved freedom through many difficulties. The Hindus and the people of Sikhism was to suffer more. They had to leave their ancestors’ property, birthplace. We cannot forget this although I cannot make a mistake in mentioning here that when the Sikhs came here, they got rehabilitation, but this did not happen with Hindus.
He said that we must first believe that we are Indians and then a human being and after that the community comes in which we are. I hope the government will take a decision for such deprived people.
He has demanded from PM Narendra Modi, Law Minister and Parliament to bring a law that provide the Indian citizenship to the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis people without any queries who came from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
