As the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cautioned against “communalising” stay of Rohingya Muslims in Jammu saying the refugees from Myanmar were “protected under international laws” to which government of India is a signatory, the BJP today asked the Government of Jammu & Kashmir and that of the Centre to deport Rohingyas and Balgladeshi from the State.
The BJP spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta said in view of the sensitive and peculiar situation of Jammu & Kashmir and “the strategy of Pakistan inflicting Jehadi-terrorism in the State, they should be deported.”
Hinting towards role of Rohingya Muslims in facilitating Sunjwan attackers, he said, the attack on Sunjwan Army camp where six army personnel and one civilian were killed and many other injured during terrorists attack on the army camp is eye opening. “The suspicions has been raised against the local support including the Rohingyas who were settled in the vicinity of the camp’s boundary. The resistance offered by those at the helm of affairs in the state government and the majority community of the state against their deportation from the state is not understandable”, the spokesperson said. He said by their resistance, they want to invite great trouble for the peace and communal harmony of the State.
He said if such people have great concern of humanity, then why they are not providing shelters to them in the Valley. “In fact they have mysterious designs of changing the demography of Jammu province and are advocating their cause with ulterior motives”, he said. He said the Government of India should take necessary steps to get Rohingyas and Bangladeshi deported from Jammu and Kashmir State.
However, the PDP has rejected the BJP’s assertion saying that a tirade has been launched against Rohingyas in Jammu. The party says Rohingyas’ are being made subject of every day discussions to polarize the situation.
Quit Jammu”, “Go Back”, “Wake up Jammu”, “Don’t save Rohingya” and “Bharat Mata ki Jai” have been scrawled across walls.
