Govt to file affidavit on Sep 18 for Rohingya issue : Rajnath Singh

The National Human Rights Commission will oppose the government's plan to deport Rohingya Muslims living in India, the body announced in a statement Saturday. From Bangladesh, some Rohingyas have crossed into India. United Nations agencies say an estimated 409,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since August 25, when deadly attacks by a Rohingya insurgent group on police posts prompted Myanmar's military to launch "clearance operations" in Rakhine state.

Myanmar's presidential spokesman on Saturday said there's no evidence of any trespassing and that Dhaka should have reached out to discuss its concerns instead of issuing public statements. "This is wrong. Under which law, can the Centre send all the Rohingya refugees back?" he added.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a petition filed by two immigrants, who have challenged the government's decision to deport Rohingyas.

Mohammed Shahriar Alam, Bangladesh's junior foreign minister, said Saturday that India, Turkey, Morocco, Indonesia, Iran and Malaysia have already sent relief and the goods are waiting in an airport in nearby Chittagong. The affidavit filed by the Union home ministry also stated that providing facilities and privileges to illegal immigrants would have adverse impact upon Indian citizens as it would deprive them of their legitimate share in the various sectors. Sources said they reviewed an intelligence report that red-flagged the penetration of Pakistan-based terror outfits, including the Lashkar-e-Taiba, among Rohingyas, contending that they would eventually be used to target India.

In an alleged copy of the affidavit from the Indian Home Ministry leaked on Thursday, the Rohingya Muslims are called a "serious threat to national security" who must be deported in the interest of the nation.

"In fact the affidavit was/is in the process of being finalised".

Around 40,000 Rohingya Muslims have settled in India, and almost 16,000 of them have received refugee documentation, according to the United Nations.

The Centre has to file an affidavit in response to a plea filed by two Rohingya immigrants, who claim that they faced persecution in Myanmar, and said the Centre's plan to deport them was in violation of worldwide convention.

The protesters also urged the people of the country to boycott all Myanmar products until its government stopped the oppression of Rohingya. Questioning the government's policy, he said that when the government can provide shelter to Buddhist refugees of Tibet then why it wants to repatriate Muslim refugees from Myanmar. "When it was told that they (Lankan refugees) are taking part in terror, what was done?"
