The Supreme Court has banned the sending of 170 Rohingya Muslims kept in Detention Center in Jammu to Myanmar. The Supreme Court issued the order on Thursday, saying that Rohingya refugees living in the camp cannot be sent until the entire process of deportation is followed.
The court rejected the plea of the petitioner, in which he had appealed to release these people. Explain that the Supreme Court had reserved the verdict on this matter on 26 March.
Prashant Bhushan gave reference to the International Court of Justice
The 3-member bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) SA Bobde delivered the verdict on Thursday. Prashant Bhushan pleaded the case on the petition of a person named Salimullah. Prashant Bhushan had cited the International Court of Justice. He had said that the lives of these Rohingya Muslims are in danger in Myanmar, so they should not be deported. It is a violation of human rights.
Center has said to be a threat to the security of the country
Earlier in the Supreme Court, the Central Government’s lawyer Tushar Mehta had argued that the Rohingya kept in the detention center are infiltrators, not refugees. These people are a threat to the security of the country. The central government had argued that India is not the capital of infiltrators. It will not be allowed to be so. The government is doing its work according to the law.
The debate went on like this
In the hearing, Bhushan had said that on 23 January last year, the international court gave its verdict regarding the genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. It said that the army has killed innocent people in Myanmar. This forced about 7.44 lakh Rohingyas to flee homeless to neighboring countries. In response, the CJI said that this petition is only for Indian citizens. Not for citizens of another country.
