Maulana Madani has appealed to the Assamese people to hold their nerve. “There is need to deal the problem with legal measures. Whose names have been missing from NRC should seriously take every necessary action and provide all basic relevant documents.” Maulana Madani has also issued instructions to every Jamiat Units in Assam to help them prepare document and other related facts. For this purpose, Jamiat has deputed fifteen hundred persons including lawyers and intellectuals to help the needy persons at district level.
Maulana Madani has also said that if any official harshly deals or misbehaves with any citizen, the same may be informed to local unit of Jamiat. The office bearers of Jamiat will try their label best to sort out the issue. It is to be noted that soon after publication of NRC list at 10 am on Monday, Maulana Mahmood Madani had detailed discussion with his state unit leaders like Maualana Badruddin Ajmal and Hafiz Basheer for taking stock of the prevailing situation and to chalk out future course of action.
