As the news(above) read... efforts on to rehab the Bengali speaking muslims in BTAD: where the word bengali speaking muslim is not correct because all the riot affected muslims were not bengali speaking; there are some muslims in BTAD who speak in Goalporiya which is used by the Rajbangshis,so if the Rajbangshis are accepted as Assamese then those muslims are also Assamese.Mixing all the muslims of lower Assam(BTAD) and lebelling them as bengali speaking may have some conspiracy to demand the area as part of Bengal.So please correct the word as Goalporia muslims or Deshi muslims.
