Violent assault on Assam BJP leader: Main accused Sahir Hussain nabbed by police

BJP's Tinsukia district president was brutally attacked by some protestors demonstrating against the citizenship amendment bill.

We had earlier reported about Assam BJP’s Tinsukia district president Lakheswar Moran being thrashed by a mob protesting against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill on January 30. Moran was there to attend a Lok Jagran Manch meeting, organised to tackle the misinformation surrounding the Amendment bill.

The protest was reportedly led by All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), Former NDA partner Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP).

Moran was greeted with slogans and black flags shown by protestors at the event. Subsequently, the protest took a violent turn after some protesters started chasing the leader. Miscreants were seen throwing tyres and stones over the leader, and also manhandling him. In the wake of this, police intervened and safely escorted Moran, protecting from further violence.

According to reports, the main accused in the case Sahir Hussain has been nabbed by police today. The alleged miscreant hails from Barpathar town of Golaghat district of Assam.
“We don’t have any problem if someone protests with black flags or going nudes. But if someone does like it was done in case of our Tinsukia district president, our 29 lakh karyakartas (workers) will not remain silent.” BJP’s state President Ranjit Kumar Dass was quoted after the incident. An FIR was also lodged by the state unit.
On February 1, hundreds of activists of BJP and other organizations a had led a protest condemning the assault outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office. Activists also submitted a memorandum to Deputy Commissioner expressing ‘serious concern and anguish ‘ over the incident.

The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016, which was passed in the Lok Sabha on 8th January, seeks an amendment to the Citizenship Act, 1955, to provide citizenship to the persecuted minorities (Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Parsis, Jains, and Christians) from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. The bill is expected to be tabled in Rajya Sabha during the Budget session.
