Sri Aurobindo points out the dangers of Hindus becoming a minority in Assam and of how Pakistan will eventually decimate Hindus in the region.
I would like to quote an extract from a letter that India’s modern sage, philosopher & nationalist leader Sri Aurobindo had written in Dec 1946 to late Surendra Mohan Ghose, Congress leader who had started his revolutionary life with the Jugantar group at Mymensingh then East Bengal. The letter speaks about the grouping that was to be effectuated by the Cabinet Mission Plan, Sri Aurobindo points out the dangers of Hindus becoming a minority in Assam & of how Pakistan will eventually decimate Hindus in the region. The last part of the letter is especially apt & unnervingly true when looked at from the present perspective, 60 years later:
“...As for Assam, will the Assamese consent to commit suicide? For that is what the grouping means if it is a majority vote that decides in the group. The Hindus of Bengal and Assam joining together in the section of the Assembly will not have a majority. This opens a prospect that the League (Muslim League) in this group may dictate a constitution which will mean the end of the Assamese people and of Hinduism in Assam. They may so arrange that the tribes of Assam are constituted into a separate element not participating in the Assam Provincial Assembly but parked off from it. The constituencies of the province could then be so arranged as to give the Mussalmans an automatic majority. Assam could then be flooded with Mahomedan colonies from Bengal and Assam could be made safe for Pakistan; after that the obliteration of Hinduism in the province could be carried out either by an immediate and violent or a gradual process once the separation of India into Pakistan and Hindusthan had been effected.
We hope your leaders are alive to the dangers of the situation...”
The situation today is chillingly real & dangers have been allowed to gradually blow out of proportion:
“Assam could then be flooded with Mahomedan colonies from Bengal” [referred to East Bengal then now Bangladesh]: the sustained, deliberate infiltration of Islamic population engineered from Bangladesh into Assam which is gradually changing the demography of the districts by making them Muslim dominated & reducing the clout & numbers of Hindus & thus gaining greater control of the whole electoral process.
“Assam could be made safe for Pakistan”: infiltration is being jointly carried out by the Pakistan & Bangladesh ruling clique so as to make the area safe for their anti-India designs. Pakistan has also begun to wield considerable clout with the Bangladeshi ruling class & fundamentalist political parties so that its operations in Assam are given support from across. Funding of the NE insurgent groups have been undertaken with urgency & the Islamisation of the whole movement is being carried out apace, note also the joint anti-India , anti-Hindu operation carried out by the ISI & DGFI in the recent past.
“After that the obliteration of Hinduism in the province”: that the targeted killings of Hindi speaking labourers, the bomb blasts etc are all attempts to obliterate Hindus & Hinduism in the province through a violent method is now quite evident. The deliberate, motivated, district-wise infiltration of islamic population from Bangaldesh is the implementation of a gradual process for the obliteration of Hinduism in the region, both are being executed with clinical accuracy.
The Sage had foreseen it all, but our present leaders deliberately look the other way & allow the dangers to unfold for the lure of power. We are thus left-sitting on a lethal powder-keg facing one of the deadliest situation as a country, a situation which questions & endangers our unity & sovereignty as a nation & questions our identity & existence as Hindus.
