India brandishes 'intelligence report' of Rohingyas' militant links

552787-rohingya-muslims

The Centre told the Supreme Court today Rohingya Muslims were illegal immigrants in India and their continued stay had "serious national security ramifications".

"People say the government should approach Rohingyas issue with a humanitarian perspective". He said the refugees were entitled to protection of their fundamental rights under Article 12 and 14 of the Indian Constitution. It says the Rohingya can not use the 1951 Refugee Convention or the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees since India was not a signatory to either.

As the Myanmar government does not recognise the Rohingyas as its citizens, in general, it will be hard for India to deport them.

Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that the government will provide evidence of Rohingya links with extremist Islamic groups and illegal transfer of money at the next hearing.

Numerous displaced have arrived with horrific tales of killings and rapes by Myanmar's security forces and Buddhist militias.

The petition was filed after India's junior home minister, Kiren Rijiju, said last month that state governments had been ordered to identify and deport illegal immigrants, including Rohingya Muslims.

Palestinian rivals agree to end internal split for reconciliation
Azzam Al-Ahmad, who headed Fatah's delegation to the talks in Cairo, told WAFA: "This step will enhance the unity of the Palestinians and end ugly division".

Mohammad Salimullah, one of the two Rohingya petitioners, said the authorities in New Delhi had always been helpful so he was hopeful the court would support the refugees.

The Centre said India has not signed any global treaty on refugees and was under no obligation to keep the Rohingyas, lakhs of whom have fled Myanmar over the past few weeks to escape a crackdown by government forces in the neighbouring country.

"We have always condemned the attacks (on Myanmar security forces) and we will continue to do so in future", he said.

"They will either be sent back to Myanmar as the situation improves [there] or [we] will send them to another country that matches with their way of living". AMM also has ties with Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed's cell in Jammu and Kashmir. Over 40,000 of those Rohingyas, who fled Myanmar, have entered India illegally, according to government's estimate.

According to United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), more than 3 lakh Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar since August 25 when the latest phase of violence broke out in the Rakhine province of the country.
