Rohingyas threat to security: Centre


Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said that the government's stand regarding the Rohingyas will be cleared on 18 Sep to the Supreme Court. Myanmar does not grant Rohingyas citizenship because it considers them as immigrants from Bangladesh, even though the community has lived in Myanmar for generations.

The government has said it is still finalising a written submission it will present to the Supreme Court next Monday, a draft of which was circulated today and reported in the media.

The clarification sent to lawyers who were representing two Rohingya petitioners in the Supreme Court has been signed by deputy government advocate BV Balram Das and says: "The CAS has served you a copy of the affidavit... by mistake".

Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju on Sep 5 had said that all the Rohingyas coming into India after being thrown out from Myanmar are illegal immigrants and will be soon deported back.

In a statement issued in Lucknow on Wednesday, Mayawati said that the Centre should not force state governments to adopt a stern stand towards Rohingya refugees.

Many politicians including the Union ministers and ministers from the Assam government had called the Rohingyas illegal immigrants in India and said they could be associated with terrorists and hence are a threat to the security of India.

The chief of HuJI, a major terror network in Pakistan and Bangladesh, is also a Pakistani national of Rohingya origin.

The supplies brought in by them will help 25,000 refugees, and more flights are planned to aid a total of 120,000 refugees, he added.

Even earlier, the government had said that it can not allow security situation of the country to suffer for the sake of allowing illegal immigrants on regional and religious considerations. There are intelligence inputs that some Rohingyas are linked with terror groups, which are very active in Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mewat, it said. The government has said that it will remove Rohingyas but through a legal route.

Since August 25, the number of Rohingya refugees who have crossed the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh has reached 389,000, the United Nations said.

He further added: "Government is certainly fulfilling all its humanitarian obligations but at the same time Government of India can not consider religion and vote bank politics that BSP, SP and Congress are involved in". The duo also stated that they were registered as refugees under the United Nations High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR) and have challenged any possible move to deport them on the grounds that it violated global human rights conventions and some other issues.
