Ambassadors say Rakhine's 'real situation' is rife with 'discrimination'

Many refugees are suspicious of the Myanmarese government's plan.

Myanmar's government spokesman said under the 1993 pact, even a hospital record was enough to prove residency.

During his visit, Minister Kyaw Tint Swe handed over an invitation of Lt-Gen Kyaw Shwe, Myanmar's Deputy Minister for Home Affairs to Bangladeshi Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal.

The court's observations came in view of strong resistance put by Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on justiciability as well as maintainability of a writ petition filed by two Rohangiya Muslims - Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir- who challenged the Union government's decision to deport about 40,000 of their fellow immigrants to Myanmar.

The Rohingyas said that India being a member of several global instruments/declarations which provide for right to asylum and against forcible repatriation, it has legal obligation to protect the human rights of refugees by taking appropriate measures under Article 51 (c) which mandates India to foster respect for worldwide treaties and obligations.

The real perpetrators, of course, are the Myanmar army, and they are the ones to be blamed for the persecution of all Rohingya, be they Hindu or Muslim.

He said terrorists from any group should be dealt with as per the law but simultaneously, innocent refugees including women and children need protection.

The Bangladesh minister gave no timeframe for repatriation and did not say whether Myanmar would also take back 300,000 Rohingya refugees who fled to Bangladesh during the earlier violence.

Suu Kyi, in her address to the nation last month, said she was committed to the recommendations.

The matter was heard by a Bench of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud at 2 pm today. "Every time the government agrees we can go back, then we're there and they break their promise".

She added: "It is utterly intolerable that the military who are responsible for this inhumane catastrophe have not heeded calls for restraint and pleas to allow those who are now refugees to return safely to their homes".

Education officials said schools had reopened in Maungdaw and Buthidaung townships "as stability returns" in the epicentre of the violence, according to a report by the Global New Light of Myanmar on Sunday. But they want to leave "of their own accord".

The UN estimates that 507,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Rakhine into Bangladesh since late August after the latest eruption of violence in the northern Myanmar state.

More than 10,000 Muslim Rohingya have massed in Myanmar near a crossing point into Bangladesh, Myanmar media said yesterday, apparently poised to join an exodus across the border due to food shortages and fear of attacks in their mainly Buddhist homeland.
