Apart from the illegal Bangladeshi immigrant problem that has hounded Bharat for decades, the anti-Bharat stance of Christian-majority Mizoram now poses a newer problem to us. Like many other north-eastern states that witnessed relentless missionary activities starting from British colonial rule leading to their near complete Christianization, Mizoram too has been a victim of exponential mass conversions to Christianity leading to the percentage of Christians increasing from a mere 0.05% in 1901 to close to 90% per the 1951 census.
Among the vocal opponents to the CAA which was passed in the Lok Sabha in January 2019 and in the Rajya Sabha in December 2019, was Mizoram’s ex-CM and Congress leader Lal Thanhawla. In March 2019, he had vociferously opposed granting citizenship to persecuted religious minorities (mostly Hindus/other Dharmics) from neighbouring Islamic countries under the CAA – those protests had even seen demands for an ‘Independent Republic of Mizoram’ and banners of ‘ Hello New Christian Country’.
Christian majority Mizoram has driven out over 30,000 Hindu Bru (Reang) tribals who now live in Tripura, and the state is keen to similarly ethnically cleanse out the Buddhist Chakma tribals as well. However, after the Myanmar military coup in February 2021, when security on Mizoram’s border was tightened to prevent influx of immigrants from Myanmar, Mizoram’s CM since 2018, Zoramthanga from the Mizo National Front Party who took oath amid Christian rituals, sent a letter to PM Modi seeking asylum, food and shelter for fleeing Myanmarese Chin refugees, only because they are fellow Christians.
Worse, in a clear violation of Bharat’s federal structure, Zoramthanga directly met with Myanmar’s foreign minister-in-exile to discuss the issue of refugees entering from Myanmar and details of the meeting were not shared with news agencies who enquired about the same. The number of refugees from Myanmar who have entered so far after the February coup is currently estimated to be around 733 per this report. During the meeting with Myanmar’s foreign minister-in-exile, the number of refugees was around 400.
Mizoram opposed CAA, basically driven by animosity against Bengali Hindu refugees who face brutal persecution in Bangladesh, but now wants Bharat to open its borders to Christian refugees fleeing Myanmar, even though there is no evidence of any religion-based persecution of these people by Myanmar Army.
It is clear that Break-India forces seek to balkanize Bharat and identify themselves by their religion rather than national identity. A Mizoram team was constituted seeking that the centre provide asylum to Myanmar’s Christian refugees. As per an IANS report, “While ruling out the possibility of deporting these refugees until the situation in Myanmar gets back to normal, members of the team requested the central government’s intervention for providing necessary relief measures to refugees staying in Mizoram and expressed hope that India will take a more proactive role and raise a stronger voice in support of people fighting for restoration of democracy in Myanmar,” said a Mizoram official statement.
Official and unofficial sources have estimated the number of Bangladesh illegals who reside in Bharat to be around 5 to 8 crore and the relatively recent entrants, the Rohingyas have also increased rapidly and spread as far as Jammu. Bharat is the most densely populated nation in the world but the fake liberal community within and abroad have no qualms in expecting Bharat to accommodate more and more illegal immigrants, while turning a blind eye to the truly persecuted Hindus and other Dharmic communities in our neighbouring Islamic nations who actually need refuge.
Apart from the scarcity of land and resources, these illegals pose a threat to the sovereignty of Bharat being crime and terror prone and with an agenda to break Bharat based on non-Hindu religious identities.
