Rohingyas illegal immigrants, not refugees: Rajnath

New Delhi: Addressing a seminar organised by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said that the Rohingyas were illegal immigrants and not refugees who applied for asylum.

Singh asked why some people were objecting to the deportation of Rohingyas when Myanmar was ready to accept them, the PTI reported.

“The Rohingyas are not refugees. They have not come here after following proper procedures. No Rohingya has applied for asylum. They are illegal immigrants,” he said.
