In a major blow, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said on Wednesday, India will not take any Rohingya refugees, as they can be a security threat to the nation.
While explaining the reason BJP leader S. Prakash told the media, “The international pressure is mounting on Suu Kyi to take back refugees migrated to India and Bangladesh in large numbers. They have been the point of discussion world over. The reputation of Suu Kyi as a peace leader was damaged. India is very clear that it will not take any Rohingya refugees as they are a security threat”.
It was learned that Myanmar state counselor Aung San Suu Kyi said Myanmar will soon begin to verify the status of the refugees.
“We are concerned about the number of Muslims fleeing to Bangladesh. We are prepared to start the verification process soon”, Aung San Suu Kyi said.
Adding further to this he said, “Many instances of their association with the LeT and other terror organizations have come to light. India is also pressurizing Myanmar to take back the Rohingyas refugees, sort out the issues, address their concerns and restore normalcy”.
Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi while addressing the country mentioned that the government does not fear “international scrutiny”.
Meanwhile, reports suggested that around 40,000 Rohingyas were staying in the country in the areas include Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR, Jammu.
