The Supreme Court on Tuesday can resume the hearing of plea of two Rohingya refugees against the Centre’s call to deport Rohingya Muslims back to Myanmar.
Last month, the apex court postponed the matter after agreeing to the request of senior advocate Fali S Nariman, who appeared for 2 refugees – Mohammed Salimullah and Mohammed Shaqir.
The matter was heard by a bench, comprising of chief justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud. In its last hearing, the bench ordered to Centre not to deport the Rohingya Muslim refugees.
The bench had ascertained that the entire issue of Rohingya Muslims needs to be checked out from numerous angles like national security, economic interest, labor interest and add the protection of kids, women, sick and innocent persons.
The Rohingya immigrants, who fled to India when violence in the Western Rakhine state of Myanmar, have settled in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, province, Delhi-NCR, and Rajasthan.
More than 600,000 Rohingya are languishing in Bangladeshi refugee camps after fleeing a brutal Myanmar army campaign launched in late August.
