Over 5,000 Rohingya Muslims settled in Jammu: Sayeed

    • SRINAGAR: Over 5,000 Rohingya refugees are living in in many settlement colonies in Jammu and Kashmir's winter capital Jammu after fleeing persecution in Myanmar, Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said on Friday.

    "There are about 1,219 Rohingya (Burmese) families comprising 5,107 members who are staying in Jammu," he said.

    Often described as "world's most persecuted minority", Rohingyas are unable to re-obtain citizenship of Myanmar after being stripped of their citizenship in 1982 in the Southeast Asian country.
    Nearly all of the refugees live in the Jammu district alone, most of them in Narwal area of the city.

    "Out of the total Rohingya refugees living in Jammu province, 4,912 members are having United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) cards and 186 members are without the cards," said Sayeed, who also holds the home department portfolio.

    The state government, however, denied having any report regarding radicalization of these Rohingyas.

    "However, their children are reportedly being provided education in six Madrasas (Islamic seminaries) in many city areas," it said.

    There are estimates of about 36,000 Rohingyas living in India after facing exodus from Myanmar.



    ***************************
    Few questions that came to my mind after I read the article were>>>

    1) Why Jammu?
    2) Ostensibly, Rohingyas are from Bengal/Bangladesh so why did they not move to WB or BD?
    3) why are the children being sent to Madrassas and why not schools?

    Ps: I do not have any issues with Rohingyas staying in India since they have been issued refugee cards.

    I have issue with providing refuge to any Muslim ,anywhere in India. Majority of foreign origin Muslims in India came as refugees of Mongol wars. But still ,if given a choice, why Hindu majority Jammu where population is Hindu ,but not Hindu enough that it could not be turned Muslim by a refugee (invader without guns) deluge.

    Rohingyas have nowhere to go, Myanmar is crossing every limit in torture so from humanitarian point of view its good that some of them get refuge in India but we often see refugee status to be abused and political parties later making them permanent vote bank, this must be stopped. There must be clear date of deportation, 3year, 5 years, 7 years till that time Myanmar will calm down, if not find any other place.

    Second problem is as butter chicken said above, when Indians cant stay in Jammu Kashmir how come people from other country are allowed? Must be relocated to some other part of country.

    Third is again to protect them from being another jihadi, they are most probable recruits of jihadis and sending them to religious seminaries will increase this danger many folds. Its a worrisome development, they must be kept in camps near border of Myanmar or Bangladesh, not in most volatile place of India.

    the refugees from West Pakistan didn't get any benefits, who should actually get citizenship but Rohingyas did. Institutionalized Bigotry.

    I guess @Butter Chicken meant that refugees other than Muslims are not sheltered in our neighbouring countries, ergo Hindus have only one hope- India.

    India being a secular country attracts refugees of every religion.
