State Can't Be Oblivious: What Supreme Court Said On Rohingya Refugees

The Rohingya approached the Supreme Court after India's junior home affairs minister, Kiren Rijiju, told Parliament in August that state governments had been asked to identify and deport people who entered the country illegally, including Rohingya. "The court would have to balance the interest of national security, economic interest, labour interest and demographic considerations", he said.

"We can not be oblivious to the plight of children and women", the Supreme Court said, adding that it has to strike a balance between human rights and national security.

Posting the case to a further date, the court gave permission to petitioners to approach it in case of any contingency.

The court said, "We have to strike a balance".

As per the information, the plea has been filed by the two Rohingya Refugees namely, Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir.

The SC said the Rohingya Muslims issue is of great magnitude and the State has a big role to play.

A three-judge SC bench led by chief justice Dipak Misra has asked the concerned parties related to the case to compile all documents and global conventions for its assistance.

Another Rohingya refugee then filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court denying the Indian government's claims that the Muslim community from Myanmar has terror links with Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the Islamic State. Earlier this week, a group of eminent personalities had urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to not deport Rohingya refugees and asylum-seekers, saying a proposal that the entire community is a threat to national security is basedon "false assumption".

A Rohingya petitioner had on September 23 told the top court that they were not illegal immigrants but refugees who fled Myanmar and came to India for shelter in wake of their persecution on the grounds of their religion and community identity and were entitled to all protection under the worldwide conventions on refugees and treaties.

Rohingya Muslims have fled from Myanmar in millions after an intense military crackdown that has been likened to an ethnic cleansing by the United Nations.
