India to expel Rohingya Muslims because Pakistan can target India in refugees disguise: Report

Shares
NEW DELHI: Amid widening international condemnation of India 's plans to deport Rohingya Muslims who have escaped the violence against them in Western Myanmar , top officials of the government met in the Prime Minister's Office to review their strategy, NDTV has reported.

The meeting last evening was called by Nripendra Misra, the top aide to Prime Minister Narendra Modi; the attendees included National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and the heads of intelligence agencies including the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW). 

They focused on increasing alerts about links between Rohingya militant commanders in Myanmar and terror groups in Pakistan. An intel report reviewed by them concludes "In our assessment, penetration of Pakistan-based terrorist outfits among Rohingya Muslims community is a serious emerging threat, as the same would ultimately be used for targeting India ."
 
The meeting was called after  India was named and shamed for its stand on the Rohingyas at the United Nations top human rights body on Monday by the chief of the agency. 

India 's representative offered an arduous rebuttal, but the timing of yesterday's brain-storming session and the seniority of those who were present illustrates that the reprimand is a sore point.

India says it currently has about 40,000 Rohingyas who have escaped in recent years from the rising violence against them in Myanmar and entered India through the north-east border. Most of them are settled in Jammu, Hyderabad and in and around Delhi. But officials say there has been no great spike in arrival in India 's in the last few weeks. 
At least 1,25,000 Rohingyas have fled Myanmar 's western state of Rakhine after the military cracked down on Rohingya insurgents who attacked an army base and dozens of police posts.
