SC bars deportation of Rohingya Muslims until case hearing

Share

The court also observed that no Rohingya refugees should be deported until the next date of hearing in the case.

In a strongly-worded observation, the Supreme Court reminded the government that it has multiple responsibilities, and must balance national and humanitarian values.

Saying that the court can't be oblivious to the plight of innocent kids and women, the SC pitched for a balancing act and said there are various issues to consider.

After the Centre's plea, the court did not pass such an order but said that in case any such deportation is done in the meantime, the petitioners would be at liberty to approach the court seeking a relief. "Moreover, India's credibility as a net security provider for our neighbours in the region would be severely compromised if we fail to act on behalf of our broader interests in the region", they said. "The issue involves human rights of many", as per ANI.

Two Rohingyas had filed a petition in the top court challenging their deportation.

Last month, the government had filed an affidavit in the apex court in which it said that Rohingyas are illegal immigrants and pose a threat to the national security.

The apex court earlier asked Centre and two Rohingya Muslims, who have challenged to deport refugees to Myanmar, to desist from making emotional arguments and personal attacks and to file documents, including worldwide conventions. India also told the United Nations Human Rights Council that the prevailing situation in Myanmar's Rakhine state should be handled with "restraint" and focus on the "welfare of the civilian population". They claimed that they have taken refuge in India after escaping from Myanmar due to widespread discrimination, violence and bloodshed against the community there.

The home ministry also directed the state governments to set up a task force at district level to identify and deport "illegally-staying foreign nationals".
