Assam Struggles for Independence from Colonial India

The United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) on Thursday reiterated its demand asking migrant workers, mostly from Bihar, to quit Assam.

"Many times we appealed to the Hindi-speaking people that the conflict running in Assam is with colonial India, so go away from here as soon as possible. Again we appeal to those people coming from colonial India to stay away during this conflicting period," the ULFA said in its fortnightly newsletter Freedom.

Authorities have blamed the ULFA for a wave of attacks over January 5 to January 8 in which 73 people were killed, 61 of them being migrant workers.

The ULFA have not owned responsibility for the violence and instead blamed New Delhi for the massacres.

"For the last few days people are ceaselessly condemning the ULFA by holding it responsible for the attacks on Hindi-speaking people. We once again reiterate that ULFA will never entertain the dirty policy of acquiring its goal by gambling with the lives of innocent people," the rebel statement said.

"Over the years the Indian colonial rulers are venturing into the tactics of bombing in public places, buses, trains and then people blame the ULFA. To tarnish ULFA's image, the colonial government's functionaries are utilising this opportunity."

The ULFA, fighting for an independent homeland since 1979, said it would step up its armed campaign.

"They (New Delhi) talk of dialogue on the one hand and announce full-fledged military operation on the other. ULFA is destined to give proper reply to this dual policy by boosting the struggle," the statement said.

"There is no way left other than intensified resistance struggle if India does not tackle the Assam-Indo political conflict politically and opt for displaying military might. Masses will rightly choose their path for resolution."

The ULFA threat to step up its campaign comes in the wake of a major counter-insurgency operation launched in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had on Tuesday said 'terrorism will not be tolerated' and dealt with 'firmly'.


This report came from hindustantimes. India government and many othr Indian propaganda machines blamed ULFA for violence. But it sounds not true.

Assam was brought into India by UK invaders. It has the every reason for independence.

India, as a victim of colonization, is hurting others by colonization.

Thats one of the dumbest comments I've ever read. Anyways, for your info, each single part of India was brought together to form the very land that is now called India by the British. Is that a good reason for other states to break up?

Also,from next time please comments in your login name Mr Newscheker.

Should have been ' today's India were forced to join British India at gunpoints'.

Go educate yourself on the term called 'Divide and Rule' and STFU

I doubt if India would be a country as it is another 50 years from now. we have the kashmiriri, punjabi, assamese, nagaland & tamil seperatist and have nothing in common.
India is basically a country dominated by north indian bhramins - most of our Politicians and corporate people are. YOu should experience the discrimination they give to northeast people who are labelled tribals and asked place of their origin because of their mongoloid feautre. fortebuster, you have no idea how backward and exploited people feel sometime. most of us just don't feel indian when we are asked which country are you from???????
