Early Times Report

Jammu, Oct 25: How did Rohingyas came to Jammu? Who made all arrangements for the Rohingyas, who wanted an Islamic State within the Buddhist State of Myanmar? And why did they come to India and not go to any Muslim country?
Kabir, himself a Rohingya, who came to Jammu by train years ago, has disclosed how the Rohingyas came to Jammu. 19-year-old Mohammad Kabir, who stayed in Bangladesh for more than a year, the other day said: "Where will we find a place like India? His family migrated to India because 'yahan kaam dhanda acha hai' (there are better work opportunities here). They have been living in India for a decade now with his mother (his father passed away in Rakhine when he was young) and seven siblings. He gets to move around freely and, in his long stay here, nobody has asked him to show his UNHCR card even once".
"I was eight or nine years of age when my family left Rakhine (in Myanmar). We were fed up of atrocities meted out to our community. The Buddhists would enter our houses in the night and take away fruits from our trees and our animals tied up outside the gate. They would beat us up. One day, we left our belongings behind and made the overnight journey to Bangladesh. One has to do it furtively as the police beat anyone who tries to escape Rakhine. There is a lot of walking involved before you can board a boat to Bangladesh," Kabir further said.
He disclosed that life in Bangladesh was not easy and that was the reason the idea of shfting to India struck. "Life in Bangladesh wasn't easy. Neither were there many employment opportunities at that time, nor were we educated enough. My brother used to earn about Rs 5,000-6,000 per month grazing goats but it just wasn't enough. Then the idea of shifting to India struck him. One day, we boarded a bus from Cox Bazar till the border and then secretly crossed into India near Malda (in West Bengal) from where we took a train straight to Jammu," Kabir said, adding that even before the family moved here, his relatives and acquaintances had been living in India for several years. "They were the one who suggested the family to come to Jammu. Brokers in West Bengal arranged everything," he disclosed.
In Jammu, Kabir picked up Hindi and found work as a car mechanic. In 2012, he came to Delhi to take part in a major protest by Rohingyas outside UN office demanding they be given refugee cards "like they had given to other Burmese residents".
Now that Kabir has disclosed everything, it is time for the authorities to act and deport all the Rohingyas from Jammu. Indeed, they are a grave threat to Jammu's demography and national security.
