Rohingyas Are Not Refugees, They Are Illegal Immigrants: Home Minister Rajnath Singh

Satellite imagery shows mass destruction targeting Rohingya in Myanmar's Rakhine: HRW

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist government is growing increasingly hostile towards the Rohingya in India, with Home Minister Rajnath Singh calling on Thursday for their deportation as illegal migrants.

"Some of the Rohingyas with militant background are also found to be very active in Jammu, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mewat and have been identified as having a very serious and potential threat to the national security of India", he said in a written statement to the court.

The bench, meanwhile, did not issue notice to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), which is already seized of the matter and has recently issued notice to the Central government. Newly arrived Rohingya Muslims, who crossed over from Myanmar into Bangladesh, rest on clothes that were earlier distributed to other refugees at Teknaf, Bangladesh.

"The Rohingya community have come to India are refugees and have fled Myanmar because of severe repression and genocide". Thousands of Rohingyas have poured into Bangladesh - and some into India - after fleeing a military offensive in Myanmar's Rakhine state.

A human rights expert in Cox's Bazar urged the government to shut local schools for three days to allow the Rohingya to camp in them.

Singh added that India is not violating any global law by deporting Rohingyas since the country is not a signatory to the UN Refugees Convention 1951.

The Union Home Ministry had in July said that illegal immigrants such as the Rohingyas pose a grave security threat to the country as they might be recruited by terror groups.

The Rohingya are one of Myanmar's many ethnic minorities in the Buddhist-majority nation.

They are not refugees, nor have they taken asylum, the minister said of the almost 40,000 people who the Centre has said it will remove from India, provoking global criticism.

"Western human rights have been through struggle but in India it always existed".

However, he also admits that there is a contradiction in India accepting the humanitarian aspect of the Rohingya refugee flows when it comes to Bangladesh but not accepting the same logic when it comes to India.

"We are partners in your concerns over the loss of lives of security forces and innocent people due to the extremist violence in Rakhine State", Modi told reporters alongside her after their talks on September 6, without mentioning the humanitarian crisis just across the border in Bangladesh. According to Bangladeshi Foreign Minister Abul Hasan Mahmood Ali, around 3,000 Rohingya have been killed in the crackdown.
