Centre to file reply on plea challenging Rohingyas deportation

The statement came in response to a petition filed at the Supreme Court challenging a government decision to deport the Rohingya, many of whom have been in India for the past decade.

It also told the SC that the decision whether or not to allow refugees to settle in the country was best left to the Executive.

The government has security inputs indicating links of Rohingya refugees with Pakistan's ISI, the Islamic State and other extremists groups that want to spread communal and sectarian violence in India.

The Centre added that some Rohingyas are indulging in illegal/ anti-national activities ie mobilisation of funds through hundi/ hawala channels.

The Centre today told the apex court that the Rohingya Muslims were "illegal" immigrants in the country and that their continuous stay posed "serious national security ramifications".

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.

No illegal immigrant can invoke writ jurisdiction of the court for enforcement of Fundamental Rights enjoyed by citizens only, the Centre further said.

The Centre also raised concern over the long-term fallout of permitting a large number of illegal immigrants to stay in India.

The Supreme Court is hearing an appeal lodged on behalf of Rohingya against the deportation plan proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist government.

Human Rights Watch on Tuesday called for the U.N. General Assembly to condemn the Myanmar military campaign against the country's Rohingya Muslim population and urged the U.N. Security Council to impose sanctions and an arms embargo against the army.

"Noting that "too many vulnerable people" had to flee for their lives, May said: "[Myanmar's de facto leader] Aung San Suu Kyi and the Burmese government need to make it very clear that the military action should stop". The petitioners have been registered and recognised by UNHCR in India in 2016 and have been granted refugee identity cards.

The Supreme Court has scheduled the next hearing in the matter for October 3.

The bench, meanwhile, did not issue notice to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), which is already seized of the matter and has recently issued notice to the Central government.

The Centre said, "Some Rohingyas with militant background were active in Jammu, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mewat and are a potential threat to internal security".

The Centre said the influx of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar started in 2012.
