#Nagalandlynching: 5 reasons behind Nagaland rape accused being Indian and not Bangladeshi
Syed Sarif Uddin Khan was lynched in Dimapur Nagaland on Mar 5, 2015. A large portion of media including the national electronic media called him ‘Bangladeshi’. Director General of Police, Nagaland, L.L. Doungel, called him an ‘Illegal Bangladeshi Immigrant (IBI)’ which the Nagaland Chief Minister TR Zeliang, refuted later.
The facts go like this:
- Sarif came from a respectable family of Bosla Village in Karimganj District of Assam.
- His father late Syed Hussain Khan worked for the Indian Air Force and retired from Air Force Station, Kumbhirgram (DistCachar Assam).
- Sarif’s mother draws her family pension from India Air Force- so, that is another evidence of him being Indian.
Sarif’s late brother Iman Uddin Khan was in Indian Army, took part in the Kargil War against Pakistan in 1999. He was injured in the war and succumbed to his injuries later.
- Sarif’s two other brothers are also presently serving in Indian Army – Havildar Jamal Uddin Khan is in Assam Regiment, posted at Diphu and another brother Kamal Khan is a personnel in Assam Regiment and presently posted at a location in Arunachal Pradesh.
The media houses and anchors, who have called Sarif, a ‘Bangladeshi’ owe an apology to the nation, they should also express regret to the deceased’s family and offer an unconditional appeal for reprieve from all who have been adversely affected and hurt by this cheap and malicious propaganda.
