Two years after legal battle against home demolitions, Assam govt pays Rs 30 lakh to five Muslim families

The Assam government told the Gauhati High Court on Wednesday that it had paid Rs 30 lakh in compensation to five Muslim families whose houses were arbitrarily bulldozed following an attack on a police station in Nagaon in 2022 over a custodial death.

“We seek a govt that does not discriminate based on religion,” say voters of Nagaon in Assam

"Since independence, no Miya representative has been sent to parliament. This time, Muslim voters want to elect an AIUDF candidate," Mufti Abdul Karim, a supporter of the AIUDF, expressed hope while discussing the minority Muslim support for AIUDF.
