<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a communique, which is in line with government’s unflinching policy regarding Rohingya Muslims despite criticism from domestic and international community, security forces have been asked to enhance vigil in the border. This has been done to foil attempts by Rohingya Muslims to enter India, a home ministry official said to PTI.In a communication, the home ministry asked the Border Security Force (BSF), deployed along the 4,096-km Indo- Bangladesh border, and the Assam Rifles, which guards the 1,643-km Indo-Myanmar border, to intensify vigil. The two border guarding forces were asked to remain extra vigilant so that no illegal immigrant could enter India, the home ministry official said.Government in an affidavit to Supreme Court has described Rohimgya Muslims as security threat and have said some of them have ties with ISIS and ISI. Currently around 40,000 Rohingya Muslims are in India according to non-government estimates, though the Centre has told the Parliament that around 14,000 Rohingyas, registered with the UNHCR, were staying in India. Rohingyas are minority Muslims in western Myanmar and have been fleeing their homes following a crackdown on their villages that has left hundreds dead. UN has described it as textbook case of ethnic cleansing but Myanmar government has repeatedly played down the nature of the violence. With PTI inputs
