Over 40,000 Rohingya refugees are illegally in India and the centre has made its stance clear to the Supreme Court (SC). They are illegally staying here and need to be deported. Today, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said none of the Rohingyas has followed the procedure to become a legitimate refugee.
But the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and the Bengal Commission for Child Protection Rights have filed a writ petition in the SC against their deportation. Bringing us to ask on ‘The X factor’ tonight — If security agencies see a major threat from these refugees. Should their human rights be upheld? And also is the National Human Rights Commission correct in raising the issue of refugees who are not Indians? Are the two commissions going beyond their breach?
