After 70 years, Government of India authorized the issue of authentication certificate to the stateless former citizens of West Pakistan. They live in pathetic refugee conditions and were not able to apply for jobs in central government or armed forces. The new certificate give them identify and legitimacy to take on a more normal life. So what happened? The separatists of Kashmir, all Sunni Muslims started protesting – why? They said this is Anti-Kashmiri and Anti-Muslim, and these actions will lead to losing Muslims losing their majority status in the state. There is no humanitarian concern for the Sikh or Hindu refugees. Let the central government stay firm and implement its decision and help these helpless people after 70 years to lead a more normal life.
