The Rohingya immigrants, who fled to India after violence in the Western Rakhine state of Myanmar, have settled in Jammu and Kashmir, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.
On October 13, a bench headed by the Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra asked the Centre to strike a balance between national security and human rights of the refugees.
The bench had observed that the whole issue of Rohingya Muslims has to be looked at from various angles like national security, economic interest, labour interest and also the protection of children, women, sick and innocent persons.
Meanwhile, the UN has termed the violence in Rakhine state as ethnic cleansing. (ANI)
