Rohingya Muslims To Be Deported From Kashmir
Delhi: The Modi government is planning to deport 36,000 Rohingya Muslims (illegal immigrants) from Kashmir. In meeting held by Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi, security issues with Rohingya Muslims were discussed. These refugees become a major security threat to the country as they are getting radicalized into terrorist groups like Lashkar-e-Toeba (LeT).
Over the past 5 to 7 years Rohingya Muslims have entered India illegally from Rakhine state of Myanmar (Burma) and spread across in different states like Delhi, Assam, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Kerala, Jammu, and Kashmir. They got shelter in India, as they were isolated and knocked out by Myanmar military and local Buddhist groups. These refugees were involved in many violent activities in Mumbai, Hyderabad, and J&K.
