Early Times Report
Jammu, Mar 13: Bharatiya Janata is shedding "crocodile tears" over the presence of Rohingyas in Jammu and is just indulging in rhetoric over the issue.
In an attempt to hoodwink the people of Jammu spokesperson of ruling BJP Brigadier Anil Gupta on Tuesday demanded that Rohingyas be deported from Jammu region without any delay.
"Their presence in Jammu is a threat for us. They have acquired sim cards for which documents are required. It's a matter of concern," retired Brigadier Gupta said.
An analyst while talking to Early Times ridiculed the statement of the retired Brigadier. "Someone needs to tell him that BJP is the ruling party and they are equal partners in the government. Who is stopping them from deporting Rohingyas from Jammu?"
He said, "BJP should stop hoodwinking people by demanding that they should be sent back and the Centre is concerned. If they are sincere towards the people of Jammu and care for their security and well being then they should act and get these illegal migrants deported without any delay."
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that 27 Rohingya families, who are illegal immigrants, living in Jammu own SIM cards, an RTI activist Rohit Choudhary said.
Choudhary had filed a Right to Information (RTI) application seeking information on the number of Rohingya Muslims living in Jammu and Kashmir.
"A shocking data that surfaced is that 27 Rohingya families and a total of 198 Rohingyas are living in Jammu Tehsil and all of them have mobile numbers. You need valid documents like Aadhaar for obtaining mobile numbers," he said.
"This means these people have fake documents or they are being supported by local people who are providing them mobile SIM cards. Government is aware of the families owning these SIM cards and can easily find out on whose name these are registered, but they are not treating the matter seriously," he added.
Terming it "a matter of serious concern," Choudhari further said that the authorities need to find out how the SIM cards were obtained, given the Rohingya do not have any documents of citizenship.
