We will not let 1989 be repeated in 2012

What Happened

In Asom (Assam) state’s Kokrajhar district, a bloody riot broke out for more than a week back. 42 people have died, 100s are injured, over 2,00,000 have fled homes to save lives, nearly two dozen trains stopped or attacked, 10s of 1000s of passengers are stranded and 100s of villages have seen burning or vandalizing of homes/buildings. As with any riot, more damage might get uncovered as things become clearer. This is an extremely serious situation and still no signs of things coming under control. Our own countrymen are forced to stay in camps.

Asom as a state is been neglected, coupled with the influx of unhindered illegitimate immigrants, the condition of Bodo’s are getting worst then worse. The situation is much more grim and rense, then words can ever explain, Our countrymen are forced to flee their OWN home, from their Own VILLAGE and their OWN country. While we are determined to bring the change in ground condition with help from all of us, who are cross demographies

Present condition and sewa activities:

1) Sewa activities is reaching more than 60,000 victims of riots

2) Victims have been provided with blankets, food, mosquito coils, note books

3) Medicines have been provided for fever, cough and other ailments and to avoid spread of contagious diseases

4) 3 Ambulances and 4 teams of doctors working round the clock to cater to the victims

5) Hindu families affected by the riots want to return home ASAP but are still in fear and are skeptical.

What needs to be Done?

An emergency response to the fast developing crisis is a need of the hour. A group of tweeples along with Ek Aur Prayaas has decided to make change beyond simple outrage. We are supporting Param Foundation , which has initiated crisis management by supporting all peace initiatives. We have initiated resource mobilization with the intent of providing relief to the victims of violence. Param foundation has partnered with seva organization in Assam that is working on relief activities.
