No Rohingya Muslim refugee should be deported until November 21

No Rohingyas to be deported till further hearing says SC calls for balance between human rights and national security

The Supreme Court today chose to give a detailed and holistic hearing from November 21 on the contentious issue of government's decision to deport Rohingya Muslims to Myanmar.

The Indian government had earlier told the apex court that besides being a security threat because of links to the ISI and the IS, Rohingyas will exhaust natural resources meant for Indian citizens resulting in hostility and social tensions. The issue involves human rights of many'.

News agency ANI quoted the SC bench as saying that national importance can not be secondary and at the same time, the human rights of the Rohingyas should be kept in mind.

Mpshe also wrongly invoked and relied on section 179 (d) of the Constitution when he made the decision, said Justice Leach. However, the president's legal team argued that they should be entitled to make fresh representations to the NPA.

"We can't ignore old women and children among Rohingyas..."

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra has asked both parties to compile all documents and global conventions for assisting the court. "If you (Centre) take any kind of contingency plan, you need to inform this court", the court told Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who appeared for the government.

In last hearing on October 3, the Supreme Court said that it will examine all the issues involved in the moves to deport Rohingya refugees back to Myanmar and urged the rival parties to address the issue on the strength of law shunning emotional arguments.

We were 2-0 down at half-time and it could've been 10-0. 'That's when I knew he was a great manager'. I thought 'what have I done coming here - this is going to be embarrassing'.

In a strongly-worded observation, the Supreme Court reminded the government that it has multiple responsibilities, and must balance national and humanitarian values.

There are an estimated 40,000 Rohingya refugees in the country, a large number of them living in squalid camps in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.

The letter further states that the Indian government's justification to deport Rohingya Muslims "is premised on the false assumption that all Rohingya people present a potential threat to national security".
