.Call for northeast shutdown against Citizenship Bill CITIZENSHIP (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2016, passed in the Parliament. The Bill seeks to legalise the stay of non-Muslims from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan who migrated to India till December 31, 2014 allegedly due to religious persecution. Most indigenous groups in the North East fear this Bill, if passed, would make the region - particularly Assam-a dumping ground for migrants. Citizen's Forum against Citizenship (Amendment) Bill launched a campaign to mobilise support against the Bill's passage. Its members appealed to the editors of all dailies in Assam to leave their editorial columns blank and television channels to run the upper or lower ticker black violated the basic essence of the Constitution".
