India Seeks Deportation of Rohingya for Security Reasons

A Rohingya refugee girl looks out as makeshift shelters become flooded due to heavy rain in Cox's Bazar Bangladesh

The statement came in response to a petition filed at the Supreme Court challenging a government decision to deport the Rohingya, many of whom have been in India for the past decade.

"It is submitted that continuance of Rohingyas' illegal immigration into India and their continued stay in India, apart from being absolutely illegal, is found to be having serious national security ramifications and has serious security threats", it said.

The fundamental rights of Indians will also be seriously violated if Rohingya refugees are allowed to stay in the country and deprive Indians of their legitimate share, it added. The immigrants also challenged their deportation on grounds of violation of global human rights conventions. Accusing New Delhi of looking at the issue from a religious angle, he said while amending the Foreigners Act in 2015, it gave certain exemptions to Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis, Christians and Jains arriving from Pakistan and Bangladesh, but the word Muslim was not included.

"Noting that "too many vulnerable people" had to flee for their lives, May said: "[Myanmar's de facto leader] Aung San Suu Kyi and the Burmese government need to make it very clear that the military action should stop".

Currently, they stopped issuing visas on arrival to prevent the entry of Muslims from Rakhine State who identify themselves as Rohingyas.

According to media reports, the violence began when Rohingya militants attacked police posts in Rakhine.




"We have asked the law enforcement agencies and the local administration to take measures so that the Rohingya population do not move out of the areas earmarked for them", he said.

Dal Khalsa Monday said Government of India (GoI) should shed parochial mindset and legalize Rohingyas refugees' stay in India.

Myanmar claims the community are illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and denies them citizenship.

The U.N. General Assembly is meeting in NY this week.

Mohammad Salimullah, one of the two Rohingya petitioners, said the authorities in New Delhi had always been helpful so he was hopeful the court would support the refugees.

"We were told to hand over our demands to a peon, which we did not do", Haque said.
