Talking Points

 

  • India should not deport Rohingya to Burma where they are stripped of citizenship, face violence, arrest, restrictions on movement and access to education and healthcare.

  • India has until now respected the UNHCR mandate for refugees from Burma. It must continue to do so and not deport Rohingya.

  • India must officially urge Burma to recognize the Rohingya minority, close IDP camps, restore all rights and integrate Rohingya back into public life.
