Rohingya Crisis: India Says Myanmar Muslims Are Security Threat
Local Editor

The Indian government alleged Monday that it has evidence there are extremists who pose a threat to the country's security among the Rohingya Muslims who have fled Myanmar and settled in many Indian cities.

Myanmar's Rohingya civilians

India's Supreme Court was hearing a petition filed on behalf of two Rohingya refugees challenging a government decision to deport the ethnic group from India.
The lawyer representing the Rohingya said the decision was discriminatory.

"This is clearly a case of religious discrimination and an attempt to arouse an anti-Muslim feeling," Prashant Bhushan said.

He said the government had no evidence of the presence of insurgents among the refugees who fled a crackdown by the Myanmar government.

The decision on whether Rohingya refugees should be allowed to remain in the country should be made by the government.

"The court has no business to interfere in such matters of what they call illegal immigrants or illegal migrants," the government said in an affidavit.

Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that the government will provide evidence of Rohingya links with extremist groups and illegal transfer of money at the next hearing.

Many Rohingya living in India fled persecution in Myanmar in 2012. According to the United Nations, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled Myanmar since a renewed military crackdown began on Aug. 25. About 412,000 of them fled to Bangladesh, but some had also reached India, Nepal and Pakistan in recent weeks.

The next hearing in the case is set for Oct. 3.
