But it is common knowledge today that those were the facade behind which a murderous witch-hunt of Jews, liberals and Communists was going on. I am not saying that the Assam movement is a carboncopy of that terrible blight upon civilisation. But it should at least instil in us a little scepticism regarding the propaganda accompanying the movement.
