#PSA #NRC #RT Something really disturbing happened today as I was landed in #India, coming back into #immigration. The official made small talk with me, as usual. Asked me, ‘So you’re from #Guwahati?’ I said yes. He asked me if my name had come in the #NRClist (1/n)
I said yes. He said, ‘Oh, good. We have orders from the government to not let any people whose names are not in the #NRC to leave/come back into the country.’ #India which is really scary to me, we have now effectively stripped citizenship from a section of society. (2/n)
So what is the #IndianGovt going to do? Not let them go home? Take them into detention centres? And the worst part is, I have an #indianpassport that’s operational since about 2014. So nothing is a safeguard. What if my name, by chance, had not been included in the #NRC? (3/n)
