Sharjeel Imam, a former JNU student has openly asked for Assam to be cut from the rest of India, during a speech at Shaheen Bagh.
Bengaluru: In yet another confirmation of how Shaheen Bagh protests are fuelling anti-India rhetoric, Sharjeel Imam, a former JNU student has openly asked for Assam to be cut from the rest of India.
In the video, he is heard saying, "If we have 5 lakh organised people then we can permanently cut north-east from India or at least for one month. Put so much (unclear) on the road that they cannot even remove it for a month. It is our responsibility to isolate Assam from India, then only they will listen to us."

He added, "Do you know what is happening to Assamese Muslims? NRC is already applied there, they have been put in detention centers. We may come to know that in 6-8 months all Bengalis have been killed - Hindu or Muslim. If we want to help Assam, then we will have to stop the way to Assam for the Indian Army and other supplies."
It all began with AAP’s Amanullah Khan making a speech, claiming that CAA will somehow target and strip the Muslims of their voting rights.
The area which is making a lot of headlines, is more or less like a slum, with dingy lanes, power cables hanging dangerously across the street. Several journalists have made a beeline to cover the protests, with a view to bring disrepute to the Narendra Modi government.
Not only at Shaheen Bagh, the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act across the country have only proved emphatically that the participants have either not read the act fully or have wantonly abstained from reading, with the obvious intention of creating violence and vandalism in the society. Now, you can also add that fact that they are being bribed to take part in the protests.
All that the CAA is does is to grant citizenship to persecuted minorities of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh who have been residing in India hitherto December 31, 2014. What is essentially a one-time offer to integrate the minorities socially and emotionally with India is being seen as a divisive and communal.
The Act enables around 32000 minority members to become citizens of India.
Refusing to bog down, Union home minister Amit Shah has categorically reiterated that the government won’t roll back the CAA, come what may.
