Strike balance between national and humanitarian interest, SC on Rohingya issue

No Rohingyas to be deported till further hearing says SC calls for balance between human rights and national security Strike balance between national and humanitarian interest, SC on Rohingya issue

The Supreme Court on Friday granted more time to all the parties to argue on the deportation of Rohingya refugees. It further rapped the government saying that there is a need to strike a balance between human rights and national security. "The issue involves human rights of many", as per ANI.

Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta submitted that the government would not like the matter to be heard in a piecemeal manner as it has wide ramifications and added that it would prefer a day for detailed hearing.

The court said the government should not deport the refugees, but did not pass a formal order putting any restrictions. The court said our constitutional ethos makes us lean sympathetically towards humanitarian issues.

The Supreme Court today observed that no Rohingya refugees should be deported until the next date of hearing in the case.

The apex court had asked the Centre and two Rohingya Muslims, who have challenged to deport refugees to Myanmar, to desist from making emotional arguments and personal attacks and to file documents, including global conventions.

In a strongly-worded observation, the Supreme Court reminded the government that it has multiple responsibilities, and must balance national and humanitarian values.

The apex court had asked Centre and two Rohingya Muslim petitioners to compile all documents and worldwide conventions for assisting the court.

Rohingya Muslims have fled from Myanmar in millions after an intense military crackdown that has been likened to an ethnic cleansing by the United Nations. The affidavit was submitted in response to a plea filed by the Rohingya immigrants, claiming they had taken refuge in India after escaping from Myanmar due to widespread discrimination, violence and bloodshed against the community there.

Rohingya Muslims are a minority in Myanmar's Rakhine where government forces have allegedly carried out summary executions, serial rapes and burned down entire villages. "I came from British Burma to British India", he also said.
