Centre's Rohingya Decision in Nation's Interest: Rijiju

Indian Home Minister, Rajnath Singh reiterated that Rohingya Muslims residing in India are not refugees but illegal immigrants from Myanmar, on Thursday.

The NHRC recently issued a notice to the Centre over its plan to deport Rohingya living in various parts of India.

"Myanmar se Bharat ghus aaye, ye Rohingya refugee nahi hain iss sachchai ko hume samajhna chahiye... None among them has followed that procedure", the minister said in his address to the "National Seminar on Good Governance, Development and Human Rights" here.

"We're using grenades containing chilli spray to stop hundreds of Rohingyas trying to enter India. the situation is tense", added the official, who declined to be identified as he was not authorized to speak to media. She has now said that verified refugees - those Rohingyas who can prove that they were originally from Rakhine province - will be taken back. The first point is that Rohingyas are not refugees in India.

The home minister added that India won't be violating any worldwide law by deporting Rohingyas from India, as it isn't a signatory to 1951 UN Refugee Convention.

The violent attacks allegedly by Myanmarese armymen have led to an exodus of Rohingya tribals from the western Rakhine state in that country to India and Bangladesh. Though the number of Rohingyas crossing over is much lower, there are fears that some of them will get radicalised or already have.

Ms May has not spoken personally with Ms San Suu Kyi, but her spokesman said Mr Johnson had done so "on a number of occasions". The crisis has drawn worldwide condemnation and US President Donald Trump called on Wednesday for a quick end to the violence .

Reiterating the Narendra Modi government's stance on the issue, Singh claimed India was not a signatory to the UN Refugees Convention of 1951, and thus justified in deporting the immigrants.

The court will next hear the matter on October 3. "India is not a signatory to the 1951 UN Refugee Convention", he said, adding that the argument from some quarters that India would be violating worldwide law in deporting them is not the case.

Both UN and human rights activists argue that despite India not being a signatory to the UN Refugee Convention, it is bound by global principles of non-refoulement. "Thousands of Rohingya had no place to hide when the rain came", Nur Khan Liton, who headed Bangladeshi rights group Ain O Salish Kendra, told AFP.

Centre's affidavit says presence of Rohingya Muslims in India is a drain on India's resources and a serious security threat to country. After the March 2016 general elections in Myanmar, Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi formed a civilian government which is now in power in Myanmar.
