India continues its persecution of Muslims with the most recent attack in the form of a Rohingya crisis in the making. The state of Assam is updating its citizenship records in an effort to weed out “illegal” citizens, mostly Muslims of Bengali origin, that have lived in India for over 6 decades. Residents have until the 31 May to update their papers with the National Register of Citizens, and the Supreme Court has ruled that it will not extend this deadline. The move could see some 5 million Indians disenfranchised. President Nahendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), is deeply Hindu chauvinistic. Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat during the infamous 2002 riots that saw more than 1000 Muslims murdered and countless others raped and abused in the streets. Divisions on the basis of ethnicity, religion or citizenship status only serve war mongering capitalists. Workers must resist communalism and build unity in struggle for our common demands.
