Is torturing toddlers the new NRC verification strategy?
  • https://cjp.org.in/

    Here are a few pictures from lower Assam where people have been forced to make travel arrangements to far flung places where their NRC reverification hearings have been scheduled. Not only is this in clear violation of the July 23, 2019 Supreme Court order, this is also inhuman given how hapless and poor people are left to their own devices to figure out how to make travel arrangements at such short notice. What's worse is that given how most people are required to travel with their entire families, several infants and toddlers, as well as the elderly are put through an extremely stressful situation. Families are reportedly forced to shell out anywhere between Rs 15,000 to Rs 40,000, money that will put most daily wagers in serious debt and undoubtable lead to further misery. This is a clear case of institutional violence against some of our most marginalised and vulnerable citizens.
