The Indian government has presented its arguments before the Supreme Court regarding the status of Rohingya Muslim migrants currently residing in the country. The government maintains that these migrants lack the fundamental right to reside and settle in India.

The government’s argument centers on the separation of powers between the judiciary, legislature, and executive branches. They assert that the judiciary cannot dictate legislative or policy matters related to immigration, which falls under the purview of Parliament and the executive.

The government expresses concern about the potential security ramifications of a continued Rohingya presence in India. They cite intelligence suggesting some Rohingya are involved in obtaining fake identification documents, human trafficking, and subversive activities. Furthermore, they highlight the ongoing issue of illegal immigration from a neighboring country (Bangladesh) that has already impacted the demographics of certain Indian border states.

The Rohingya people are a Muslim ethnic minority who have faced persecution in Myanmar. Many have fled to neighboring countries, including India, where their legal status remains uncertain.
