Revealed!! AMM factor compels India to take stern stance on Rohingya issue

Terming the ongoing Rohingyas issue as a major challenge from across the border in Myanmar, the BJP leader said the government is handling infiltration and illegal migration with "utmost maturity".

Meanwhile, the Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that the "Rohingyas are a serious security threat (and are) staying illegally in India".

He said the government had evidence of the presence of militants among the refugees who fled a crackdown by the Myanmar government.

His statement comes after claims that the government rejected reports that it was planning to halt the issuing of visas to those travelling from Myanmar in a bid to stop Rohingya Muslims from entering the island.

Germany, Sweden, England and Turkey have taken a strong stand, but the Australian government has not said anything in defence of the Rohingya.

The Centre had further said that it is completely within the executive policy how to deal with illegal immigrants such as Rohingya Muslims.

"We played Chelsea in the Community Shield and in the FA Cup final last season, so we know we can beat them", Cech told Sky Sports .

The fundamental rights of Indians will also be seriously violated if Rohingya refugees are allowed to stay in the country and deprive Indians of their legitimate share, it added.

"As India has accommodated refugees coming from Tibet, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, issue of Rohingyas refugees should also be considered in the same spirit", he said.

"We have always condemned the attacks (on Myanmar security forces) and we will continue to do so in future", he said.

"Even Tibetans, Afghans and Lankans who came from their respective countries fearing persecution were illegal the day they crossed over".

The Centre told the bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud that many Rohingyas "figure in the suspected sinister designs of ISI/ISIS and other extremist groups who want to achieve their ulterior motives in India including that of flaring up communal and sectarian violence in sensitive areas of the country". The group also has ties with Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) cell in Jammu and Kashmir.

With the providing assistance to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, India has made it clear that New Delhi is ready to provide support on humanitarian ground.
