Rohingya deportation: Bengal child rights panel moves SC

Suu Kyi's refusal so far to defend the Rohingya over nearly a month of violence has baffled and enraged an international community that once feted her as the champion of Myanmar's democracy struggle

Rohingya deportation: Bengal child rights panel moves SC

The United Nations says there are 16,000 registered Rohingya in India, but many more are undocumented.

Ms Banerjee said the Central government had asked the state government to prepare a list of the children (residing in shelter homes and prisons) in the state and share it with them to execute the deportation.

Amid a debate on whether Rohingyas should be deported or given refuge in India, the Home Ministry on Monday, in an affidavit to the Supreme Court, called them a "security threat to India". The Rohingyas are not refugees. They arrived during peak migration crises and conflicts, including the Partition in 1947, the Tibet crisis of 1959, the creation of Bangladesh 1971, civil wars in Sri Lanka and wars in Afghanistan.Refugees not only come from devastated neighbours but also from African and Middle Eastern countries such as Congo, Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Rwanda, Somalia, Rwanda, Somalia.

Many experts have questioned where India could send the Rohingya. "They are illegal immigrants", he said.

The Rohingya have been fleeing Buddhist-dominated Myanmar for decades.

"The people who have entered into India from Myanmar are not Rohingya refugees".

However, aid agencies estimate there are about 40,000 Rohingyas in the country. According to the Commission, from the human rights angle its "intervention is appropriate" in the matter. "The issue is also related to our national security", he said.

"The world knows that Rohnigyas are stateless and disenfranchised people and are deprived of all human rights since 1947".

"The issue of national security is involved with regard to illegal immigration which our country can't undermine", he said.

"When Burma (Myanmar) is ready to take them back, why should we have objections against their deportation?"

Chairman Justice H.L. Dattu, present at the function where Rajnath Singh spoke, said the Commission would back Rohingyas because they were being persecuted in Myanmar.

"But I want to tell them that the non-refoulement principle is applicable to those who take asylum".

Rajnath Singh chided human rights activists for criticising India's stance on Rohingyas.

"We are partners in your concerns over the loss of lives of security forces and innocent people due to the extremist violence in Rakhine State", Modi told reporters alongside her after their talks on September 6, without mentioning the humanitarian crisis just across the border in Bangladesh.

"Despite everything (many problems on refugee issues), for a nation that claims a place at the high table of the world, and that claims to get a seat in security council of United Nations, and which has a remarkable record of participating in UN peacekeeping forces across the globe, I think we can not shy away from responsibility of accommodating refugees (in general)", he told PTI. The UN has said the army action could amount to ethnic cleansing.

Human rights group Amnesty International has blamed Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi and the country's government for "burying their heads in the sand over the horrors unfolding in Rakhine State".
