"It (such statements) undermines India's security".

Desperate Rohingya grab for aid handouts of clothing and food in Tankhali, Bangladesh. He also said that they (Rohingyas) might have some links with terror groups. The duo also stated that they were registered as refugees under the United Nations High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR) and have challenged any possible move to deport them on the grounds that it violated global human rights conventions and some other issues.

The government's stand has been that infiltration of Rohingyas from Rakhine into Indian territory, especially in recent years, besides being a burden on the limited resources of the country, also aggravates security challenges posed to India.

Rohingya Muslim refugees have taken shelter in India and a large number of them in Bangladesh to escape persecution against them by Myanmar authorities. Another Minister of State in the Home Ministry, Hansraj Ahir, said on Wednesday that keeping Rohingyas in India will create law and order problems.

Meanwhile, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina headed for the UN General Assembly yesterday to plead for global help coping with the Rohingya crisis as conditions worsen for the refugees.

The government told Parliament on August 9 that, according to available data, more than 14,000 Rohingyas, registered with the UNHCR, are presently staying in India.

During the three wars with Pakistan, many refugees from West Pakistan were allowed to enter the country and also given voting rights, then why can't 40,000 Rohingyas stay in a country with a billion plus population, Owaisi questioned.

The CM's reaction comes at a time when the Ministry of Home Affairs has alerted states to identify and monitor "illegal migrants".

The government's draft affidavit says there is no "violation of fundamental rights of the petitioner" in this case.
