Rohingyas Illegal Immigrants, Not Refugees: Rajnath Singh

Rohingyas Illegal Immigrants, Not Refugees: Rajnath Singh”

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

The affidavit states that it has been "found by the Central Government that numerous Rohingyas figure in the suspected sinister designs of ISIS/other extremist groups who want to achieve their ulterior motives in India including that of flaring up communal and sectarian violence in sensitive areas of the country".

New Delhi, Sep 21 Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said Rohingyas are not refugees who have applied for asylum in India but illegal immigrants who "will be deported". "It was carrying the food to Rohingya refugees on the border, including those stranded in the no-man's-land", he said.

Even as he refused to comment on the Indian government's decision to deport Rohingyas back to Myanmar, Mr. Alam said that they had received "assurances" from India regarding support on the Rohingya issue.

Many Rohingya living in India fled persecution in Myanmar in 2012. He has opposed the plea of two Rohingya refugees saying they are a burden on country's resources and pose serious threat to national security.

On top of that, Anifah said, Malaysia also called on the State's Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi for immediate implementation of all the recommendations of the nine-member Advisory Commission on Rakhine State, which was chaired by former United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan.

Rasheed reminded New Delhi of its claims that "India is the second largest Muslim dominated country and as such should be given at least observers status in organizations of Islamic Conference and it is moral and legal duty of New Delhi to help helpless Rohingyas". No Rohingya has got asylum in India nor have they applied for it. The Rohingyas have never been granted Myanmar citizenship, despite having resided in the country for centuries. According to the United Nations, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled Myanmar since a renewed military crackdown began on August 25.

The UN has called the mass exodus of Rohingya from Myanmar's Rakhine State a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing".
