Rohingyas are the immigrants from Myanmar who have entered the territories of India as refugees seeking safety and shelter after being thrown out from their country.
The "incomplete" affidavit that was, on Thursday, sent "inadvertently" to some lawyers who have petitioned the Supreme Court on the Rohingya issue had said that it had been "found by the Central Government that numerous Rohingyas figure in the suspected sinister designs of ISIS/other extremist groups who want to achieve their ulterior motives in India including that of flaring up communal and sectarian violence in sensitive areas of the country".
Dujarric said that the reports about Rohingya's plight and pictures of them fleeing were heart-rending and these are very vulnerable people and deserved to be helped.
The Centre also said that it was found that there were organised network of agents and touts facilitating illegal migration of Rohingyas in India.
CPI (ML) to oppose Centre's any move to deport Rohingya Muslims
The government told Parliament on August 9 that according to available data, more than 14,000 Rohingyas, registered with the UNHCR, were presently staying in India.
India now has about 40,000 Rohingyas who have escaped in recent years from the rising violence against them in Myanmar and entered the country through the North East border.
In an alleged copy of the affidavit from the Indian Home Ministry leaked on Thursday, the Rohingya Muslims are called a "serious threat to national security" who must be deported in the interest of the nation. "It undermines India's security", Rijiju said in a tweet on Wednesday. According to unofficial estimates, there are almost 40,000 Rohingyas in India, largely located in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan. Almost 15,000 have received refugee documentation, according to the United Nations, but India wants to deport them all. The government has said that it will remove Rohingyas but through a legal route. "The government should also hold talks with governments of Myanmar and Bangladesh to resolve the problems of Rohingya Muslims, so that there exodus from their country is stopped", the BSP supremo said.
Experts in India defend the government's stand.
Sources said they reviewed an intelligence report that red-flagged the penetration of Pakistan-based terror outfits, including the Lashkar-e-Taiba, among Rohingyas, contending that they would eventually be used to target India. The ministry has also asked the state governments to identity such illegal immigrants and initiate deportation process.
