Why Varun Gandhi wants asylum for Rohingya Muslims in India

Why Varun Gandhi wants asylum for Rohingya Muslims in India”

Varun's editorial made a sound argument for granting asylum to Rohingya refugees in India.

Reacting to an article written by Varun Gandhi in which he said that Rohingya's must be given asylum in India after analyzing security concerns, Hansraj Ahri said that those who think about the nation's interest won't say such things.

Gandhi has also penned down suggestions for framing a policy to ensure refugees are not a threat to the country.

MP and son of Union Minister Maneka Gandhi, in a stand which is against the Union Government and his party, on Tuesday said Rohingya Muslim refugees are victims, they deserve to be treated humanly and should not be deported from the country.

"If any outsider enters India like this and looking at their past how they troubled Myanmar Government, spread terror and worked against the government, we can not trust them", Ahir asserted.

Gandhi's stand differs from his own party's stand as the BJP government at the Centre earlier this month submitted an affidavit in the Supreme Court calling Rohingyas a threat to national security.

After Ahir made public government's and BJP's displeasure with Gandhi's opinions, the Lok Sabha MP from Sultanpur, who describes himself as a Parliamentarian and a columnist, clarified that "his article focused primarily on defining India's asylum policy, with clear demarcations of how they (immigrants) could be accepted (in the country)". "The Prime Minister of Myanmar, who is a Nobel Laureate, did not accept the Rohingyas then how can us", Ahir told ANI. Gandhi said that India must work on a national refugee policy to differentiate between different types of refugees.

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government is now embroiled in a legal battle in the Supreme Court over a petition filed by two Rohingya refugees.

In the first week of September, the Supreme Court had ordered that Chakma and Hajong refugees in Arunachal Pradesh - who migrated from East Pakistan around 50 years ago - be granted citizenship.

Varun's view on the Rohingya crisis is, however, in conflict with the BJP and the Centre.

In his article, the BJP MP urged the government to look back into India's rich history of helping the refugees and help the Rohingyas.
