“Rohingya Muslims Are Illegal Immigrants in India. They stand to be deported”.
Law Is More Important Than Human Lives

Human rights organization Amnesty International recommended Prime Minister Narendra Modi to provide assistance to Rohingyas in the violence-hit Rakhine state.
“Protect Rohingya refugees and asylum-seekers instead of “threatening” them with deportation.”
