    I don't want to make it personal, that's why I made a general example. But yes it doesn't make any sense.

    The Nazis didn't much like people of darker skin tones either you'll find.

    Very long time ago. Looking at it the other way though, if these people were to live in Bangladesh instead, it would save lives in the short term and in the long term it wouldn't matter because people would adapt to the change. Borders would remain unchanged, whereas in the NI situation, you have the issue of borders.

    Their place lies in Britain .Most of them were settled in the Arakans during British rule . They're your responsibility . Petition your government for fast repatriation to your land .

    Evidently you are unfamiliar with reality and seem to see the Nazis as some kind of benevolent ender of British Empire.

    Actually no, their argument is that they were from precolonial Arakan. And no, they aren't British. Wherever the British settled, they made something decent of the place - US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Falklands.

    But you seem to think they weren't that bad just because you were never exposed to them. And it was actually exposure to their evil that caused Britain to decide to end colonial rule of its own accord. India never fought a war of independence, nor did any other colonies, except Zimbabwe, which became independent from the UK before there was a war. Britain corrected itself, the Nazis had to be corrected by someone else.

    This is also an issue of borders, Rohingya salvation army wants to free Rakhine ie separate it from Myanmar. This is the problem with Bangladeshis, they overpopulate themselves then try to illegally migrate to other lands. Rohingya intrude into India and Bangladesh will not accept the Rohingyas back. We elected the current Nationalist Govt to prevent such things, virus needs anti-virus, it was our Brexit(electing Modi).

    Ah well, that's probably why the Myanmar government wants them gone. Don't want a Sumatra situation. In that case, they brought it on themselves.

    .Maybe not so much in hindsight given the leprechaun in existence in the county of your origin .
    They were your subjects. You settled then there . Since your government thinks it has the moral right to lecture others on human rights , perhaps just this one time it can out its money where it's mouth is and relocate them to the UK. All 2 million of them . Think of how enhanced your reputation would become. In all of those nations still roiling from the acts of colonialism. Plus you have a precedent too . All those Mirpuris , you accepted when they were dislocated following Pakistan's construction of the Tarbela dam .

    Can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs. I guess the alternative was leaving the locals there to see if they could land on the moon and design the first microchip by themselves.

    Hong Kong didn't want to go back to China. They wanted Chinese rule about as much as they wanted AIDS.

    Seriously? You think anyone other than Mugabe is responsible for Zimbabwe's ailing economy? You're right, it completely fits my narrative. The white farmers were very good at what they did, Mugabe kicked them off their land, and gave it to black people who didn't know how to farm, just for popularity, then they had a food shortage and hyper-inflation. South Africa gained self-governance in 1931 and became a republic in 1961. That said, the economy was actually doing better under apartheid rule even with sanctions.

    Ah yes leprechauns. Roughly as abundant as pots of gold at the end of rainbows.

    No, we didn't settle them there. Are you seriously implying that these people originated from the UK.
