Myanmar has agreed to take back Rohingya: HM


Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has reiterated that Rohingya Muslims, who are living in India, are not refugees but they are illegal immigrants so objection to deport them are baseless since Myanmar has expressed his desire to take them back.

He stressed that 40000 Rohingya are neither refugees nor have taken asylum. Now Union government has said that they will be deported from india provoking international criticism.

On September 18, the union government had filed affidavit in the supreme court that it will confidentially share intelligence information with judges showing Rohingya having link with Pakistan based militants groups and ISIS.

The apex court is deciding an appeal lodged on behalf of Rohingya against the deportation plan. They are denied citizenship in Buddhist majority Myanmar and considered as illegal immigrants, despite claiming roots that century ago.

Singh said that the illegal influx of Rohingya into India started four to five years ago, long before an exodus that witnessed more than four lakh Rohingya flee to Bangladesh since August 25 to escape a Myamar military counter insurgency offensive that the UN has named enthnic cleansing. Now court will hear the matter on October 3.
