The Rohingya Muslims are the most persecuted community in the world. It is perhaps one of the most ignored communities in the world as well. People have ignored their plight, and now, their genocide by the hands of the military junta of Myanmar/Burma.
There is a sizeable population of these people in India. Jammu and Kashmir is one such example. The other is Delhi and then there is Hyderabad, An estimated 2,200 Rohingya refugees live in the Hyderabad.
But the problem is that now, the Government of India plans to deport them. Which means they will be sent to back to Myanmar where children, women and men and being butchered and massacred. This should not be the response of any country. Sending them back to a near certain death is inhuman. This is not what the idea of India is. India is built on compassion, pluralism, and secularism. India must welcome them and create a plan of action for their rehabilitation.
The UNHCR is working with agencies for granting them a status of refugees. This should continue.http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/11/rohingya-villages-burned-myanmar-hrw-161113085745561.htmlhttp://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/rohingya-muslim-crisis-latest-myanmar-rakhine-state-villages-set-on-fire-a7935811.html
