Explainer:Who Are Rohingya Muslims, Why India Wants To Deport Them & Is It Ethical?
The Rohingya community residing in India is in a state of chaos and fear ever since the government announced its plan to deport around 40,000 illegal Rohingya immigrants from the country.
“All of us are worried and scared. We are very hopeful of the India government but why only Rohingyas? We can’t go back to our country,” Shabbir Faisal Ahmed, founder of the NGO Rohingya Human Rights and a refugee himself told ScoopWhoop News.
According to Rohingya Human Rights initiative, close to 1100 migrants live in the capital alone, 800 of whom are registered by the UNHCR. The largest number is in Jammu, estimated to be 10,000.
