SC defers hearing on Rohingya plea

The Supreme Court on Friday deferred its hearing on a plea by Rohingya immigrants against the government’s proposed move to deport their 40,000-strong refugee community back to their native land of Myanmar, where discrimination and possibly summary execution await them.The Rohingya community, which fled to India after violence in the state of Rakhine in Myanmar, have settled down in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan.The Bench led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said the case would be posted for final disposal in January.The petitions have said the Centre’s move to deport them violates the constitutional guarantee that the Indian State should “protect the life and liberty of every human being, whether citizen or not.”
