Many issues have erupted in Assam after the NRC updation process began a few years ago. The economically weaker sections have suffered the most and there is a looming fear amongst the people of Assam of being rendered stateless. In the midst of all this, there appears to be a clear agenda of the ruling government against the Muslim community which it has clearly manifested in its Citizenship Amendment Bill, which it plans to re-introduce in the current winter session.

What is the Ram Temple REALLY about?

For the many who do not know what the original Ram Temple movement is and the many who may have forgotten the mayhem, eminent activist and journalist Teesta Setalvad presents a ready reckoner on what the Ram Temple movement really is about and why has it been so conveniently resurrected, twenty six years later in 2018.
