The Supreme Court has directed the Assam government to ensure that no children of parents whose names have been included in the updated list of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) will be sent to detention centres or separated from their parents until an application filed by the Citizens for Justice & Peace, Mumbai is fully considered. CJP had filed an Intervention Application in the ASSAM NRC matter (Assam Public Works v/s Union of India) pointing out that hundreds of not hundreds of thousands of children had been excluded from the NRC when their parents had been included. The IA Nos 181511/2019 was filed in late November 2019, details a sample list of 61 such names of children from various districts in Assam. The IA has prayed for directions from the SC that “the Coordinator to immediately take steps to ensure that no child is left out of the NRC especially in cases where the parents/guardians/caregivers are in the list and that pending hearing and final disposal of the present Application, pass orders directing the Respondent State not to take any coercive action against the children or separate them from their families.”

Tales of Bonbibi: The Forest Goddess worshipped by Hindus and Muslims

In times like these, when the political unrest in our country is soaked in communal tension, tales of communal harmony where Hindus and Muslims have worshipped the same Gods and Goddesses since ages, need to be reiterated time and again. Bonbibi or 'Lady of the Forest' is one Goddess that the Hindus and Muslims of Sundarbans, in Bengal, have unanimously prayed to protect themselves from wild animals in the forest, as they ventured inside to collect wood, honey, crabs and fish, thus solidifying the religious syncretism of our country.
