"In Jammu and Kashmir">Jammu and Kashmir, Rohingyas are in two districts- Jammuand Samba on the borders. These areas are communally very sensitive. The state government is working on the directions of the Centre on this issue and definitely they have to be shifted from there. Otherwise, there is every potential of Pakistan using them as terrorists.
