Sacks on stick symbolize plight of displaced Rohingya Muslims

Addressing a seminar on "Good Governance, Development and Human Rights", organised by the National Human Rights Commission, Singh said those concerned with human rights of others should also be concerned with the rights of Indians.

On Monday, the Centre told the Supreme Court that it will confidentially share intelligence information with judges showing Rohingya links with Pakistan-based terrorists. No Rohingya has got asylum in India, nor has anyone applied for it.

The home minister said that the government has extended aid to Bangladesh for the welfare of Rohingyas there.

The two Rohingyas who had moved the Supreme Court against the Central government's plans to deport them have said that the community is peace-loving with no connection to any criminal activity.

The influx of Rohingya refugees into Bangladesh has ground to a virtual halt, officials said on Saturday, almost a month after the eruption of violence in Myanmar which has seen nearly 430,000 flee in four weeks. Rohingyas' illegal immigration is also related to national security.

Singh also said that India would not violate any worldwide law by deporting Rohingyas, as it was not a signatory to the UN Refugees Convention 1951.

"Operation Insaniyat: High Commission handed over 1st consignment humanitarian assistance by India to Bangladesh", the mission tweeted.

"The Rohingya community have come to India are refugees and have fled Myanmar because of severe repression and genocide".

"The limited and incomplete democracy" of Myanmar, "yet strongly dependent on military power, shows, in this conflict, intolerance and lack of respect for human rights and reveals its negative and dark side, conflicting with the principles of civilisation and with the religious beliefs of its people", said the tribunal.

Bangladesh's government recently protested the use of landmines by Myanmar security forces on the border area after a mine blast killed three Rohingya villagers fleeing violence in the Maungdaw area.

Attacks by militants on Myanmar police posts on Aug.25 unleashed the military crackdown which the United Nations has said could amount to "ethnic cleansing".

Close to 40,000 Rohingya Muslims live in India after fleeing Myanmar over the past decade.

"The State Counsellor also directed that the decision reached at the meeting must be implemented immediately", the statement said.
