Mosque in Bengaluru hands out NRC forms to Muslims
In the midst of confusion over Citizenship Bill and NRC, a mosque in Bengaluru issued self-assessment forms to help Muslims fill NRC details without any hassle
Bengaluru: There are two policies of the Narendra Modi-led NDA government that have been making waves across the country and not necessarily for all the right reasons - the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB). The NRC which was first launched in Assam, is a list containing names of all verified Indian citizens. The idea of maintaining a record of verification is to weed out illegal immigrants, especially Bangladeshis as far as Assam is concerned. Union home minister Amit Shah had been toying with the idea of extending it to West Bengal first, but now has declared that it will soon cover the entire country. In the midst of confusion, a mosque in Bengaluru has been issuing self-assessment forms to help Muslims fill NRC details without any hassle.
There is also a mock test given to all with NRC forms – just to teach them how to fill the forms correctly without any mistakes. Earlier in the month of November , Waqf Board had issued a circular to all the mosques in Karnataka stating that every mosque should run a campaign under which every information of the local Muslims must be collected, along with documents so that the process runs smooth without any hassle and mistakes get rectified in government documents if found. The circular also states that every mosque should ensure that not even a single Muslim faces any difficulties in proving domicile when required.
