Rohingya in India 'Illegal', a National Security Threat, Modi Government Says in Court Affidavit

Rohingya refugees at a camp in New Delhi. The government said fundamental rights of Indians would be violated if Rohingyas are allowed to stay in India

The affidavit went on to say the government had reports from security agencies and other authentic sources "indicating linkages of some of the unauthorised Rohingya immigrants with Pakistan-based terror organisations and similar organisations operating in other countries". The Myanmar government said it is fighting Rohingya militants.

The crisis has prompted condemnation of the country's de-facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, for refusing to blame Myanmar's powerful military for the crackdown, which French President Emmanuel Macron said amounted to "genocide". "Some fled to Bangladesh, some to Indonesia, some others to Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and some also to Dubai", said the 20- year-old who works in a local hotel.

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 exodus of refugees was triggered by the military's response to attacks by Muslim militants in Rakhine state on August 25.

The Centre told the Supreme Court that Rohingya Muslims are "illegal" immigrants in the country and their continued stay posed "serious national security ramifications".

"We need the government to take a lot further effort to secure the area, to protect the people", Henshaw said in an interview on the sidelines of the annual United Nations General Assembly meetings.

Primarily, he said, the government planned to provide them short-term family planning kits containing condoms, birth control pills and birth control injections.

Tin Muang, secretary of the Rakhine state government, said requests from two villages to allow safe passage were rejected because there was enough rice and a nearby police station protected them.

The United Nations says more than 4,20,000 Rohingya have fled for safety to Bangladesh in the face of an army campaign in northern Rakhine state that includes rape and the burning of villages. The address marks the first time Suu Kyi has spoken about the recent crisis.

Any clear moves to block the refugees' return will likely anger Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheik Hasina.

Ms Suu Kyi addressed the nation about the crisis on Tuesday and condemned abuses and said all violators would be punished, adding that she was committed to peace and the rule of law.

While Bangladesh has earned global praise for opening its doors to the Rohingyas, aid agencies have warning of a growing humanitarian crisis as authorities struggle to provide even basic facilities for the new arrivals.

A Red Cross truck carrying aid for Rohingya Muslim refugees crashed in Bangladesh on Thursday (Sep 21) killing at least nine people, police said.

The Rohingya are considered to be among the world's most persecuted people.

Landmines claim more victims, with three Rohingya killed in a blast while fleeing Myanmar.

India's policy towards Myanmar has in large part been driven by its need for help in cracking down on insurgents along its border, as well as its need for energy.

The crisis has threatened to jeopardize Myanmar's US -aided shift toward democracy after five decades of harsh military rule.

Aid efforts are being stepped up, with a Boeing jumbo jet laden with 100 tonnes of supplies leaving Saudi Arabia for Bangladesh and the United States announcing another $32 million in assistance.
