Rohingya crisis is foreign policy matter for India, says Former AG Rohatgi

Supreme Court Supreme Court

Reports quoted the Union Minister as saying that "every country will decide the course of action based on its foreign, security policy and balance of population". The Myanmar government denies the term and refers to them as Bengalis, illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. "The fundamental rights of Indian citizens would, therefore, be seriously violated", the 15-page affidavit said. "If India says we won't allow them in our country then no global body can ask it to take them in", he said.

Up to 800 people rallied in Martin Place against the genocide of the Rohingya ethnic minority in Myanmar on September 17.

Meanwhile in Hyderabad, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav has said that the Modi government has extended humanitarian aid to Bangladesh to deal with Rohingya Muslim refugees fleeing Myanmar, but it would tackle "those sections sternly" when it comes to national security.

The Centre said it had found that "many of the Rohingya figure in suspected sinister designs of ISI/IS and other extremist groups who want to achieve their ulterior motives in India, including that of flaring up communal and sectarian violence in sensitive areas".

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

It's also the first time in franchise history the Bengals have failed to score a touchdown in back-to-back home games. The Texans secondary suffered key injuries to cornerbacks Johnathan Joseph and Kevin Johnson , but limited A.J.

The Centre said India has not signed any worldwide 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.

Since Aug. 25, more than 420,000 Rohingya have crossed from Myanmar's western state of Rakhine into Bangladesh, according to the UN.

The ministry said the illegal influx of large numbers of Rohingya into India began four to five years ago, long before an exodus that saw more than 400,000 Rohingya flee to Bangladesh since August 25 to escape a Myanmar military counterinsurgency offensive that the United Nations has called "ethnic cleansing".

The latest exodus began after Rohingya militants attacked police posts in Rakhine state on August 25 triggering a military backlash. There are also some in Pakistan.

Rohingya in India voiced worries that they were being unfairly tainted by the allegations and sought more understanding for their plight.
