STAFF REPORTERGUWAHATI: Every original inhabitant cannot be termed as “indigenous person”, stated the director of 'Rights and Risks Analysis Group' (RRAG) Suhas Chakma at a meeting organized by the Assam Government regarding the socio-economic Census of indigenous Muslims of Assam, here on Tuesday.
It is on this legal premise that the Government of India had ratified the International Labour Organization's Convention No.107 relating to the Indigenous and Tribal Populations on September 29,1958.
“To term, every original inhabitant group as “indigenous” is nothing but the perversion of the term 'indigenous people'.
By this logic, Englishmen would be indigenous people of England and Germans would be indigenous people of Germany,” he added.
