Muslims In MP’s Neemuch Refuse To Show Documents
Amid protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), Muslims in Neemuch and adjoining districts in Malwa region of Madhya Pradesh are refusing to show their Aadhar and other identity cards to government personnel during an ongoing survey for ration cards and food eligibility slips, say officials. Neemuch is situated in Malwa region on the MP-Rajasthan border, 428 kilometres North West of Bhopal. The population of Neemuch is about 1.28 lakh according to the 2011 census out of whom about 30000 are Muslims. The survey began on December 31 and would go on more than a month during which each Anganwadi worker has to contact as many as 150 families to verify the ration cards with the government records. An Anganwadi assistant in Neemuch, Veena Pathrod said, “When we go into Muslim-dominated localities they don’t show their ration cards. They don’t show their aadhar cards and voter I-cards as well with help of which we could verify the credentials of the ration cards and food eligibility slips holders.”
