Shed parochial mindset and legalize "illegal" Rohingyas refugees : Dal Khalsa

US to Give $32M for Myanmar's Rohingya Refugees

The Government is to end its training of Myanmar's military amid the Rohingya Muslim refugee crisis, the Prime Minister has announced.

With the country facing allegations of ethnic cleansing, Myanmar leader Aung San Suu said her country does not fear worldwide scrutiny.

"Proposed deportation is contrary to the constitutional protections of Article 14 (Right to Equality), Article 21 (Right to Life and Personal Liberty) and Article 51 (c) of the Constitution, which provides equal rights and liberty to every person".

The government said many Rohingyas have managed to avail PAN cards through forged documents. She said she personally visited the area to listen to their sufferings as they crossed land and rivers to reach a shelter.

The Nobel Peace Prize victor broke her silence over the Rohingya crisis earlier on Tuesday, claiming Myanmar "does not fear global scrutiny". The investigation into the case had revealed that two of the four people killed while assembling the explosive were Pakistani nationals and the remaining two were local Rohingyas.

Bangladesh, which is facing an unprecedented influx of Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar, plans to build new settlements to house about 4,00,000 refugees that entered the country over the past three weeks. "India can not be seen as endorsing a demand for Rohingya homeland with a friendly neighbour like Myanmar".

The influx has got people in Ukhia and Teknaf in Bangladesh anxious about diseases that have stated spreading, said the NHRC chairman who voiced concern about the scarcity of medicines and of refugees carrying diseases, which could spread among local residents.

Speaking at a briefing at Ukhia Upazila Parishad Auditorium, Cox's Bazar Deputy Commissioner Md Ali Hossain said access to the refugee zone will be restricted for all.

She has previously said, however, that the UN's decision to establish the independent FFM was not "in keeping with what is actually happening on the ground".

The bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, did not issue notice to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), which is already seized of the matter and had on August 18 issued notice to the Centre.

The NHRC chairman was speaking before a Rome-based Permanent People's Tribunal (PPT), an global public opinion tribunal that operates independent of state authority. The Centre through an affidavit has told the apex court that militant elements among the Rohingyas are active in Delhi, Hyderabad, Mewar and Jammu.

The Rohingyas, in their plea filed through Prashant Bhushan, said their proposed deportation was against the fundamental rights and the worldwide human rights conventions.

The stateless Rohingya have been fleeing Myanmar for decades.

"The local administration and law enforcers will work hand in hand".

The Rohingya has been living for centuries in Rakhine, but the Myanmar has been propagating that they are illegal migrants from Bengal.

The Myanmar army hit back fast and hard with "clearance operations" in Rohingya villages.

In a nationally televised speech on Tuesday, Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi vowed to punish the perpetrators of human rights violations in Rakhine, but did not address United Nations accusations of ethnic cleansing by the military.
