The NHRC had recently issued a notice to the government over its decision to deport Rohingya Muslims residing in different parts of India.
Those refugees are joining more than 300,000 Rohingya already in Bangladesh because of repression and abuses. Were we to expel them to Bangladesh from where they came, we will not be endangering this Muslim population which Myanmar identifies as Bengalis, to persecution. No Rohingya has applied for asylum.

After the March 2016 general elections in Myanmar, Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi formed a civilian government which is now in power in Myanmar. The military junta - that ruled Myanmar for many years was accused of ethnic cleansing of Rohingyas by the United Nations - forced a lot of the latter to flee to Bangladesh in the 1970s.
