Govt has proof of terror links 19.9.2017 DNA: Popular News
The Centre has catalogued evidence of links of Pakistan-based terror groups with Rohingyas to claim that the refugees' continuous presence in India could pose "serious national security ramifications". A confidential report lists incidents to establish links between stateless Rohingya and terrorist organisations in Pakistan and others global groups like Al-Qaida. Sources also claim that Pakistan's deep state had an interest in keeping Rakhine province on the boil to foil Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Act East Policy. The anchor of this policy is Rs 29-billion Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport Project connecting Rakhine's capital Sittwe to India's landlocked Northeast region. Many here believe that Sittwe has similar significance for India to reach Bay of Bengal, as Gwadar in Baluchistan in Pakistan has for China to connect its mainland to Arabian Sea. The dossier mentions an IED blast that took place on May 4, 2017 at Buthidaung Townshi in Rakhine, in the westernmost part of Myanmar. Investigations ...

Govt should see Rohingyas as refugees, not Muslims: Owaisi 15.9.2017 deccanherald.com
If refugees from Tibet,Bangladesh and Sri Lanka can stay in India, why not the Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi has said. He also cited the case of Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen, who has taken shelter in India for over a decade now following threats from Islamic fundamentalists in her country. Attacking the NDA government over its stance on Rohingyas, who are fleeing Myanmars violence-hit Rakhine state, he said, "Is it humane that you want to send back those who have lost everything. This is wrong." If Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen can take shelter in India, why not the Rohingya Muslims? he asked while addressing a gathering here late last night. "When Taslima Nasreen became your sister, cant Rohingya become your brother, Mr Modi," Owaisi, the Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad, said. The BJP government at the centre should not see the Rohingyas as Muslims but as refugees, he maintained. "We want to tell the BJP government, dont look at them as Muslims. They are ...
