The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -led government of Assam will conduct a socio-economic census program from March this year to identify local Muslims in the state.  Assam Minorities Development Board Chairman Muminul Oval said that the purpose of this census is to separate indigenous (local) Muslims from migrants from erstwhile East Bengal, East Pakistan or Bangladesh.

 The survey will mainly cover the Goria, Moriya, Desi and Tea Tribe Julaha communities that the government considers indigenous.  Muminul Oval told our associate newspaper Times of India, 'Indigenous Muslims and Bangladeshi Muslims have the same names.  At the time of implementation of public welfare schemes, the government has to face a lot of problems in their identity.  Actually, our government is committed to the development of indigenous Muslims, so they should have a separate identity. '

 Oval said the preparations for the census are in the final stages and it is expected that the entire process will begin in this financial year.  A meeting of people belonging to indigenous Muslim communities, including the state Minority Development Department, has been called on 11 February.  Further plans for the census will be discussed in it.
