Rohingya Muslims Will Be Identified, Biometric Collected and Eventually Deported

Rohingya Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir will be identified and their biometric details will be collected within two months. The remarks about Rohingya Muslims from came from Governor Malik after Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that all states have been asked to identify Rohingya refugees and collect their biometric data.

The Union Home Ministry will later send a compiled report on Rohingyas to Myanmar. Rajnath Singh, while describing the Rohingya Muslims as illegal immigrants, urged the political parties to not politicise the Centre’s efforts to identify them.

Indian home ministers directions came four months after he penned a letter to the Jammu and Kashmir government, stating, “Such illegal migrations pose severe challenges and have security implications since some of the refugees have been found to have indulged in illegal activities and are vulnerable to radicalisation.”

On the recent assassination of BJP leader Anil and Ajeet Parihar in Kishtwar, Governor Malik said, ”the terrorists who killed the two brothers have been identified.” “Terrorists were frustrated as the local body polls were conducted smoothly; hence, they carried out this brutal assassination. The morale of the security forces is high, and no terrorists can disturb the panchayat elections,” the J&K Governor concluded.
