SC puts on hold Centre's plan to deport Rohingyas

SC puts on hold Centre's plan to deport Rohingyas

The Court also orders that no Rohingyas will be deported until it will deliver its verdict on the matter.

Last month, the government had filed an affidavit in the apex court in which it said that Rohingyas are illegal immigrants and pose a threat to the national security.

Hearing a petition against deporting Rohingya people from the country, the Supreme Court today called the Rohingya situation in Myanmar a "huge humanitarian crisis", but stopped short of freezing a plan to expel the refugees after the centre pleaded that a stay order could have worldwide ramifications.

"The national importance can not be secondary and at the same time human rights of Rohingyas should be kept in mind", said the three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra. He contended that such an order would embarrass the government in the worldwide fora. It allowed the petitioners to approach it in case of any contingency.

A three-judge SC bench led by chief justice Dipak Misra has asked the concerned parties related to the case to compile all documents and global conventions for its assistance. Around 40,000 Rohingyas are residing in India illegally, as per some inputs.

Supreme Court refuses to modify order on cracker sales in Delhi
According to media reports, the traders after the Supreme Court judgement were asking customers to place an order via whatsapp . The interim application came up for hearing before a bench headed by Justice A K Sikri.

Senior advocate Fali S Nariman, appearing for the petitioner Rohingya refugees, opposed the government stand and said the petition under Article 32 was maintainable as the Constitution guaranteed individual rights.

He argued that the Centre's stand towards Rohingyas was exactly opposite of India's consistent pro-refugees stand in worldwide fora.

The Rohingya refugees, a persecuted community of Muslims from Myanmar have fled the country in large numbers. India also told the United Nations Human Rights Council that the prevailing situation in Myanmar's Rakhine state should be handled with "restraint" and focus on the "welfare of the civilian population".

"This is simply not the case and the evidence to support these assertions has not held up". It is in India's national interest to ensure that all hostilities against the Rohingya community come to an immediate halt.

The top court also said, 'We have to strike a balance.
