Rohingya deportation row: Rajnath Singh asks why object when Myanmar ready to take back, NHRC still objects


Sep 2017


The Home Minister said that the resources in the country are first meant for its citizens and before worrying about others’ human rights, the human rights of Indians should be considered first. “Bharat ke andar jo bhi resource hai uss par Bharatiya ka adhikar hai. Doosron ke manvadhikar ki chinta karne se pehle aapne manvadhikaron ki baat karni chahiye,” Rajnath Singh said.
He said that the truth is that Rohingyas who have come to India are not refugees. “Myanmar se Bharat ghus aaye ye Rohingyas refugee nahi hai iss sachchai ko hume samajhna chahiye,” the Home Minister said.
The Home Minister said that Rohingyas have not followed the due procedures through which refugee status is granted to immigrants. “Refugee status prapt karne ke liye ek process hota hai aur inmein se kisi ne iss procedure ko follow nahi kiya hai,” he said.
