JAMMU, Feb 15: Shiv Sena Hindustan has slammed coalition Government for being lax in allowing the settlement of over 6,000 Rohingya Muslims in Jammu region.
Addressing media persons, here today, State president Shiv Sena Hindustan, Pt Rajesh Kesri asked the State Government to take measures to “stop” the illegal settlement of Bangladeshis and Rohingya Muslims, whose number has been increasing.
Kesri demanded that the State Government should spell out a policy on “whether Rohingya and Bangladeshi Muslims can stay in the State. “The Government should spell out a policy on Rohingya Muslims. It is a very serious matter and the Government should find out how they have come to the State. They are living without permission and could be a threat to the security of the state,” he said.
The Shiv Sena leader told the Government to be serious about the issue and clear its policy as there are many who are overstaying the period for which they have been permitted against valid travel documents while several others have entered illegally by crossing the border.
He regretted that BJP leadership was merely issuing press statements but has done nothing to deport back these illegal immigrants. He said that these immigrants reportedly involved in several criminal and rebellious backgrounds were prone to ‘Jehadi extremism’ in the militancy hit State. “They are suspected to be involved in various anti-national activities like drug trafficking, hawala transactions at the behest of enemies of the nation,” Kesri said and added that their presence would lead to increase in pro-separatist as well as anti-India activities in the State.
