Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said that criticism against the government for deporting the Rohingya living in the country was uncalled for as the Myanmar government itself was willing to take its citizens back.

The home minister said India would not be violating any global law if it deports Rohingyas as it is not a signatory to the UN Refugees Convention 1951.

When asked if Myanmar has talked to Pakistan in this regard, Suu Kyi said, "No, we have not had any discussions with them on this".

China, which has close economic and diplomatic ties with Myanmar and is a competitor to the United States for influence in the strategically important country, has called for understanding of the government's efforts to protect stability. He said also referred to the humanitarian assistance to Bangladesh in handling the Rohingya crisis. Religious tensions between the Muslim Rohingya and the majority-Buddhist population turned violent several years ago.

The government told Parliament on August 9 that more than 14,000 Rohingyas, registered with the UNHCR, stay in India.

Myanmar's government, led by State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, must immediately cease its repression of the Rohingya.

Mike Glennon's Limitations limit the Bears Offense Drastically
Bears general manager Ryan Pace said July 26, " Mike Glennon is our starting quarterback", per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. But Glennon is the most important part of that team effort with the ball in his hands on every offensive play.

His comments came at the "National Seminar on Good Governance, Development and Human Rights" organised by National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), which had sought a report from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) saying its intervention is "appropriate from the human rights angle".

"I said, 'It's doing very well, but the only problem that we have is the refugees from Myanmar, '" Hasina told Reuters.

According to the fourth recommendation, ASEAN will corner Myanmar until it accepts Rohingya, Karen and Kachin people as its own.

The 15-member UN Security Council has met twice behind closed doors since the Rohingya crisis began on 25 August and last week issued an informal statement to the press condemning the situation and urging Myanmar authorities to end the violence.

The Myanmar government does not use the term "Rohingya" and does not recognise the people as an official ethnicity, which means they are denied citizenship and effectively rendered stateless. "Neither are there any asylums for the Rohingyas and they haven't applied for it too". In a campaign to wipe out the armed rebels, Myanmar's military also targeted unarmed Rohingya civilians, a tactic human rights groups have described as "ethnic cleansing".

An International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) ship carrying 50 tonnes of aid was halted by a 300-strong Buddhist mob in the state capital Sittwe on Wednesday night.
