Nobody should try to make India Islamic country: Meghalaya High Court judge

A Meghalaya High Court judge while terming the National Register of Citizens (NRC) defective has said that “nobody should try to make India… another Islamic country, otherwise it will be a doomsday for India and the world.”

In a judgment, delivered on Monday, Meghalaya High Court judge Justice S R Sen said that India was one of the largest kingdoms of the world, which was ruled by Hindu kings but the “Mughals came to India and captured the different parts” of the country.

Justice Sen also has urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to enact laws to allow the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhist, Parsis, Christians, Khasis, Jaintias and Garos who have come from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to live in India and to be given citizenship.

“Therefore, I request our beloved Prime Minister, Home Minister, Law Minister and Hon’ble Members of the Parliament to bring a law to allow the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhist, Parsis, Christians, Khasis, Jaintias and Garos who have come from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to live in this country peacefully and with full dignity without making any cut off year and be given citizenship without any question or production of any documents.”

“Similar principle should be taken to those who live in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. They may be allowed to come at any point of time to settle in India and Government may provide rehabilitation properly and declare them citizens of India.”

Disposing a petition regarding grant of a domicile certificate, Justice Sen dwelt on the topic of citizenship, observing that he will “fail” in his duty if he does not “project the original India and its partition” while hearing a domicile certificate matter, reported The Indian Express.

He said Pakistan declared itself an Islamic country and India should have also been declared a Hindu country but “remained a secular country”. 

He quoted a book, My People Uprooted: The Exodus of Hindus from East Pakistan and Bangladesh, authored by Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy, said the report.
