Support from Unexpected Quarters; Varun Gandhi supports Rohingyas

rohingya

Rohingya issue shot into limelight once again support for them came from unexpected quarters in India. BJP Member of Parliament Varun Gandhi expressed his opposition to the central government’s decision of deporting Rohingyas and put it in a public domain through getting it published in a national newspaper.

Varun Gandhi, in his column, has asked the government to keep in mind not just international agreements India is a signatory to, but also “the rich Indian tradition” of helping refugees. “Four crore people have sought refuge in India since independence,” he wrote in Navbharat Times today and later shared the piece with his 56,000-plus followers on Twitter. Gandhi also called for a national refugee policy, which differentiates between people fleeing a country following persecution as opposed to those fleeing poverty. The government, which has decided to deport nearly 40,000 Rohingya Muslims, is furious. “Anybody who has the national interest in mind will not make such a statement,” Minister of State for Home Hansraj Ahir said.
