Eroding Citizenship in Assam | Karwan e Mohabbat

June 7, 2019
Hidden behind the headlines from Assam, who are some of the people whose names are missing from the NRC – the National Register of Citizens? Labelled as ‘foreigners‘ and mocked as 'termites', what do they look like, where do they live? This is the story of the people of the Char islands, who constitute 10% of the population of Assam. This film looks them in the eyes and listens to their voices, their songs and their despair. #KarwaneMohabbat
