An interactive session, true to the spirit of its name, ‘Alaap Alochana Empowering the Religious Minorities’, was held today with intellectuals.

The discussion centered around socio-economic issues affecting the indigenous Muslim population of Assam and was held in presence of Minister of Welfare of Minorities & Development Department Chandra Mohan Patowary, Education Minister Ranoj Pegu, MLA & Pol Secy Jayanta Malla Baruah.

To ensure constructive intervention follows this, 8 sub-groups with representatives of indigenous Muslim will be formed to deliberate on issues for the community like health, education, skill development, cultural identity, financial inclusion, women empowerment etc.

A Chairman from the community & a Member Secy from the govt in each sub-group will come up with recommendations on their assigned matters within 3 months.
