With the mass exodus of North-eastern people from some southern states, what started as a clash between Bodos and alleged illegal migrants from Bangladesh has now become a battle between two Indians. Let’s assume that the rumours of a deadline set by some groups or individuals for NE people to leave these states are true. Now the question is: who are these individuals and groups? Media reports suggest that these are Muslim groups who want to avenge the atrocities committed by Bodos on Muslims in the Bodoland Territorial Autonomous Districst (BTAD) in Assam. These groups obviously exist within the boundaries of India and, therefore, are as much Indians as the people from North-east are. They are targeting fellow Indians to protest against what Bodos did to “assumed” and real infiltrators from Bangldesh.
