13 October 2017, 03:46 | Taylor George

Don't deport Rohingya refugees, human rights must be kept in mind, says Supreme Court

Must balance security with humanity can't deport Rohingyas till case is heard Supreme Court to govt

The Supreme Court on Friday after hearing the plea filed by the Rohingyas not to deport them and others from the country comes to a conclusion that this case is not an ordinary one and the Centre needs to make a balance between the Human Rights and the National Security.

In response to a petition moved by two refugees challenging the deportation, the government told the top court that many Rohingya refugees have links with the Islamic State and Pakistan's spy agency ISI. It, however, allowed petitioners to approach it in case of contingency.

The court stated observed that it can not be oblivious to the plight of innocent children and women but also asserted that there needs to be a balance between human rights and national security. "The court would have to balance the interest of national security, economic interest, labour interest and demographic considerations", he said.

Stressing that the State has a big role to play, the apex court said the issue of Rohingya Muslims was of "great magnitude". The issue involves human rights of many'.

The top court had earlier heard the centre insist that the court must not entertain the petition from two Rohingya Muslims against sending them back and called the 40,000-odd "Rohingya immigrants" in India as a threat to national security.

The Court also orders that no Rohingyas will be deported until it will deliver its verdict on the matter. The immigrants also challenged their deportation on grounds of violation of global human rights conventions. The Indian government is seeking to deport them, saying some of them may be linked to militant groups based outside of the country.

Since August 25, around 4 lakh Rohingyas have fled the country and majority are living in refugee camps in Bangladesh.

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.
