Supreme court to take a call on Rohingyas: Rajnath

 The Supreme Court will take a call on the central government\'s plans to deport Rohingya Muslims, who entered the country \"illegally\", Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on monday.

\"An affidavit has been filed. Whatever decision is to be taken, it will be taken by the court,\" he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

The Centre today told the apex court that the Rohingya Muslims were \"illegal\" immigrants in the country and that their continuous stay posed \"serious national security ramifications\".

In an affidavit filed in the apex court registry, the NDA government said the fundamental right to reside and settle in any part of the country is available to citizens only and illegal refugees cannot invoke the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court to enforce the right.

The apex court is hearing a plea filed by two Rohingya immigrants, Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir, who are registered as refugees under the United Nations High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR). They claimed that they have taken refuge in India after escaping from Myanmar due to widespread discrimination, violence and bloodshed against the community there.

The immigrants also challenged their deportation on grounds of violation of international human rights conventions.
