India deports Rohingya Muslims to Myanmar

India deports Rohingya Muslims to Myanmar

Allowing the deportation of the seven Rohingya Muslims, the Supreme Court said they were found by the competent court as illegal immigrants and have been accepted by their country of origin as citizens.

The men were in Silchar central prison in Assam since 2012 for illegally crossing the border in violation of the Foreigners Act.

Government attorney Tushar Mehta told the judges that the government of Myanmar had given them certificates of identity and 1-month visas to facilitate their deportation.

The Supreme Court, on Thursday, dismissed a plea that was filed to prevent the return of seven Rohingya illegal immigrants back to Myanmar.

A bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, which made it clear to lawyers at the outset that it will not allow urgent mentioning of matters till the framing of "parameters" on such cases, said that it would take a decision on urgent hearing in this issue after perusing the application.

The Myanmar diplomats have affirmed the identity of the seven Rohingya immigrants and have given them access to be deported from India.

The move comes after a Rohingya refugee sought to restrain the Central govt from deporting the refugees who completed their jail term in Assam.

All the seven from Myanmar's Rakhine state were detained for violating the Foreigners Act, the ministry said. They are to be deported to Myanmar on October 4.

He said that after the genocide which has happened in Myanmar in which over 10,000 people have died, lakhs of Rohingya have migrated to Bangladesh and India.

Achiume said India risked breaching its worldwide legal obligations by returning the men to possible harm.

It is wrong, they haven't been recognised, Prashant Bhushan replied, saying it was the responsibility of the court. This is the first deportation of Rohingya immigrants from India to Myanmar.

Last year India announced it would deport its entire Rohingya population, thought to number about 40,000.

Human rights group Amnesty International has blamed Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi and the country's government for "burying their heads in the sand over the horrors unfolding in Rakhine State".

About 700,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since August 2017 to escape a brutal campaign of violence by Myanmar's military.

"The Indian Government has an worldwide legal obligation to fully acknowledge the institutionalised discrimination, persecution, hate and gross human rights violations these people have faced in their country of origin and provide them the necessary protection", said Tendayi Achiume, special rapporteur on racism, Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

UN Special Rapporteur on racism, Tendayi Achiume, said in a statement, "The Indian Government has an worldwide legal obligation to fully acknowledge the institutionalised discrimination, persecution, hate and gross human rights violations these people have faced in their country of origin and provide them the necessary protection".
