Rohingyas not refugees because they did not follow due process: Rajnath Singh

Rohingya refugee issue: Why BJP sees no scope for dilution on deportation stand

The Indian government told the country's top court on Monday that the Muslim Rohingya who have fled Myanmar are a serious security threat as it sought to justify moves to deport up to 40,000 of the refugees.

There is an abundance of material to show that the Rohingyas are being forced to flee Myanmar due to atrocities systematically carried out against them on account of their religious and ethnic identity, it said. Refugee status prapt karne ke liye ek process hota hai aur inmein se kisi ne iss procedure ko follow nahi kia hai.

Police have arrested a suspected al Qaeda member they believe was trying to recruit Rohingya in the country to fight security forces in Myanmar. Moreover, it said, the fundamental right to reside and settle in any part of the country is available to citizens only and illegal refugees can not invoke the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court to enforce the right. Any sovereign nation will act against illegal immigrants. Rohingyas' illegal immigration is also related to national security.

Some 40,000 Rohingya Muslims have taken refuge in India. Many of those who had fled to India after the earlier spate of violence, were settled in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.

Indian Home Affairs Minister Rajnath Singh reiterated Thursday that tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar residing in India are "not refugees but illegal immigrants". The court will hear the issue on October 3.

Dismissing allegations of human rights violations Singh said, "We have to think about the human rights of our own people before talking about the human rights of people from other countries".

He disputed the home minister's previously stated view that because India is not a signatory to the Refugee Convention, India can dispense with worldwide law on the matter, "together with basic human compassion", as the United Nations official put it. "Some people have entered India in an illegal fashion and now there is talk of their human rights".

Solim Hossain, a 67-year-old refugee, who looked lost among the huge crowd of people, said: "I do not know what to do". This reality needs to be understood. "When Myanmar is ready to accept them".

"India should not be behaving like the abusive Myanmar government", said HRW's South Asia director Meenakshi Ganguly.

Dattu, in his remarks, maintained that the NHRC would speak in favour of Rohingyas. In the case of the Rohingyas there are ample evidences that terrorist groups such as the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army with links to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are operating in the Rakhine province. Even their right to self-identify as Rohingya is denied by a government that calls them "Bengali" and deems them immigrants from Bangladesh.
