Deport Rohingya Muslims, Chennai trust tells SC
A trust from Chennai has moved the Supreme Court seeking deportation of Rohingya Muslims living illegally and said that their presence posed, social, economic and security threat to India.
The petition further said that Myanmar should be pressured to resolve the crisis within its borders. "Rohingya conflict is undeniably a massive humanitarian disaster and even United Nation officials have taken note of it. But such cataclysms although irremediable are best addressed locally within the home state i.e. Myanmar, by way of exerting international pressure or by working out a roadmap with the Burmese government or by sending shiploads of aid and so on, and on the other hand, India cannot solve this crisis by importing and welcoming it...", the application filed by Indic Collective Trust through Advocate Suvidutt Sundaram and J Sai Deepak said.
The Supreme Court will on September 11 hear a petition filed by two Rohingya Muslims seeking a directive to the government to halt the deportation process. The Chennai based trust has sought to implead itself in the ongoing case.
