Most of the criminals today are quite educated and it is wrong to preconceive that only unskilled or uneducated persons take to crime. The recent bank heists suspects were educated and well to do and yet chose to increase their wealth criminally and how does the Tamilnadu police monitor so many lakhs of people coming to Chennai for working in various companies or for studying. There is a definite flaw in thoughts of enumeration/profiling and if it is not scrapped then they are setting up an dangerous precedent for the other states to cite or follow similar procedures affecting scores of Tamilians working out the state.
I reproduce below the views of Times of India for fueling your thoughts on this issue
The decision to profile migrant labor goes against the spirit of social integration as enshrined in the Constitution. The stated objective of crime prevention rests on the presumption that migrants are responsible for rising levels of crime though present data may not support such a claim. Activists have raised concerns that the process could instill suspicion among locals and sow seeds of disharmony. The state should give up the exercise and focus on improving policing instead.
Your views and comments on the course of action taken by Tamilnadu Police please. !!
