The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said that India will not take any Rohingya refugees as they pose a security threat to the nation. India is also pressurising Myanmar to take back the Rohingyas refugees to sort out the issues and address their.
“The international pressure is mounting on Suu Kyi to take back refugees migrated to India and Bangladesh in large numbers. 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,” BJP leader S. Prakash said.
“There are many instances of their association with the LeT and other terror organisations have come to light. India is also pressurising Myanmar to take back the Rohingyas refugees, sort out the issues, address their concerns and restore normalcy,” he said.
Suu Kyi already said the country would soon begin a verification process for the return of Rohingya refugees, who had fled the western Rakhine state, in a bid to aid those who wish to return.
“We are concerned about the number of Muslims fleeing to Bangladesh. We are prepared to start the verification process soon,” she said, referring to the unprecedented exodus of the Rohingya Muslims to Bangladesh, in a nationally televised address, the first since an army crackdown on the minority community was branded as “ethnic cleansing” by the United Nations.
Suu Kyi further said that an action would be taken against anyone, who goes against the law of the land or violates human rights, ‘regardless of race or political position.’
