"I have served the Indian Army for 30 years". Now he is expected to appear in the court on October 13.
"In 2012 also, I had received a notice saying I was a doubtful voter but I submitted all documents in the tribunal court and it had declared me as an Indian citizen", he said. In his twitter message, he has requested Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose party BJP made the illegal Bangladeshi a poll issue during the Assembly election, the, president and the home minister to end this harassment of a citizen. These were set up in Assam under the Foreigner (tribunal) Order of 1964 to check if the status of the citizens whose nationality is found to be doubtful.
Assam Director General of Police Mukesh Sahay told PTI that it was "a matter of procedure" and that the foreigners tribunal did not take into account whether a person was an Army personnel or not while serving notice.
Illegal immigration from Bangladesh is an emotive issue in Assam. "But it pains me when my daughter questions me if this is how the country treats those who serve it for so many years", he said.
Aman Wadud, Haque's lawyer, said that his client was never approached by any investigation agency. "Its a 2008 case and on Tuesday (October 3) when the court reopens, we will send for the documents".
Haque has claimed that he was in Assam's Kamrup district in 1968 and that his mother's name features in the 1951 National Register of Citizens. There was no communication from the Assam Government after the issue came to light in the media.
According to records from 2015, the number of tribunals increased to 100 soon after the number of cases on alleged illegal migrants increased, according to India Today report.
The Indian Army's East Command contacted Haque and has promised to all necessary assistance till the matter is solved. Unlike criminal cases, in cases related to the Foreigners' Tribunal, the onus of proving one's citizenship lies with the individual.
