But where is their deportation order?
Rohingyas in Jammu

Early Times Report
Jammu, June 12: A BJP minister in the Narendra Modi Government on June 10 read in Jammu that the Government of India had taken a decision to deport Rohingyas. "The Congress and the NC are unnerved by the Modi Government's decision to deport Rohingyas. While every right thinking citizen across the country has hailed the announcement made by Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, that every Rohingya settler will be made to return to Myanmar without any leniency, the NC and the Congress leaders are apologetic and hesitant in welcoming this announcement. This only exposes the lack of clarity and conviction on their part as well as their politics of appeasement for vote," the minister said.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had nowhere said that Rohingyas will be deported. Asked on June 8 in Jammu about the ration and Aadhaar cards being accessed by the Rohingya in Jammu, the Union Home Minister had only said: "All the states have been issued an advisory that no identification documents should be issued to the Rohingya so that they don't claim citizenship. The Rohingya have come from Burma (Myanmar). They should and will have to return to their place".
There is a hell of difference between what the minister in Jammu said on June 9 and what the Home Minister a day earlier said in Jammu. Even a naïve can make a difference between two statements: "Every Rohingya settler will be made to return to Myanmar without any leniency" and "the Rohingya have come from Burma (Myanmar) and they should and will have to return to their place".
It would be important to point out here what the Government of India told the Supreme Court about Rohingya issue on April 10 this year.
"They are settling down either in Jammu or Telangana. Why the pattern? There is a method there. We can't give them more benefits than our citizens. It is not as if the government was discriminatory. But they have been here for over 10 years. But the spate of petitions (in court) have come suddenly when we are already struggling with illegal with illegal migration from Bangladesh. All these issues should be dealt with by state governments," Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told a three-judge bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra.
What Tushar Mehta told the SC on June 10 is the stand of the Union Government and it nowhere suggests that the deportation of Rohingyas is round the corner.
However, it is a fact that the Union Home Ministry on June 4 did ask the J&K Government and other states to "confine illegal Rohingya settlers to pre-identified locations within their respective jurisdictions, record their personal particulars, including biometric details, and not to issue them Aadhaar number or any other identity proof so that they could claim Indian citizenship". In fact, the Union Home Ministry sent a letter to this effect to the J&K Chief Secretary and even this letter nowhere indicated that the Government of India had any plan to deport the Rohingyas.
It's no wonder then that the people in Jammu have been asking the minister to "show the deportation-of-Rohingyas-order".
