Shortly after the Government of India in its affidavit to Supreme Court claiming that the Rohingya Muslims are “illegal” immigrants in the country and their continuous stay posed “serious national security ramifications,” former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah took to twitter and said that there was no such threat prior to 2014.
“This threat, at least in J&K, is a post 2014 development. No such intelligence reports ever came up for discussion in Unified HQ meetings,” Omar Abdullah tweeted.
The Centre’s affidavit, filed in the apex court Registry, said the fundamental right to reside and settle in any part of the country is available to citizens only and illegal refugees cannot invoke the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court to enforce the right. (CNS)
