Appears for Rohingyas in Supreme Court [Read affidavit]

Posted September 19, 2017

Arguing for deporting the Rohingya refugees, the Centre said that the "organised Rohingya Muslim influx" started in 2012, using porous border between India and Myanmar.

"Whatever government will do, will be in nation's interest", Hindustan Times quoted Minister of State for home affairs Kiren Rijiju as saying before the Supreme Court hearing.

"The total number of such illegal immigrants into our country would be more than 40,000 approximately as on date".

Sept 18: Centre tells SC that Rohingya Muslims are "illegal" immigrants in the country and their continued stay posed "serious national security ramifications".

The Centre said it had found that "many of the Rohingya figure in suspected sinister designs of ISI/IS and other extremist groups who want to achieve their ulterior motives in India, including that of flaring up communal and sectarian violence in sensitive areas".

In its affidavit, the Centre also submitted that numerous Rohingyas figures in the suspected sinister designs of the ISIS and other extremist groups want to achieve their ulterior motives in India including that flaring up communal and sectarian violence in sensitive areas of the country.

In the 15-page affidavit, the Centre also told the top court that it was best to let the Executive decide on the issue of deportation of refugees in the country.

Explaining its stand on the principle of Non-Refoulement (which prohibited deportation of refugees) invoked by the petitioners, the Centre submitted that it was a party to the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights to which the principle did not extend.

The plea against deportations was filed by Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir, both of whom are registered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

More than three lakhs Rohingya Muslims have had to abandon their homes in Myanmar to escape genocide committed by Budhist terrorists and Burmese army at the behest of the Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

The Rohingyas have been fleeing Myanmar for decades and the exodus has seen a marked increase over the past few months amid reports of mass killings of the ethnic minority by the Myanmar military despite appeals for calm and peace directed at Myanmar state counsellor and Nobel Peace laureate Aung Saan Suu Kyi by the global community and rights activists.

An estimated 40,000 Rohingyas are present across India including Jammu and Kashmir and Rajasthan states.
