‘ 1. Evaluate the problem, itsmagnitude and its implications. (200 words) Havinga safe and sound geostatic location and a healthier economy than its otherneighbouring countries, INDIA has become one of the main center of immigration.
Several immigrants from countries like: Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Tibet, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Myanmar have beenimmigrating to India and have settled here. The matter of several countrieshave been looked into but Bangladesh has been left unattended. Exceeding thecounts of 15 million immigrants from Bangladesh have settled in the landlockedstates with Bangladesh. Some have also managed to find menial jobs in themetropolitan states of India. Theseimplications have challenged India and as a result have resulted into fewerresources and a weaker national security. Adversely affecting the way of living ithas deeply affected both the countries. Nor acknowledging or taking any stepsinto this matter stays still the country of Bangladesh. It has been a high timeand we seriously need to sort out this matter as soon as possible.
Without the support of Bangladeshigovernment, India’s efforts over the years to resolve the issues have gone downthe drain. But, the blame is not only on Bangladesh as India also needs to makelaws against illegal immigration. It’snot also a part of the United Nations 1951 Convention Relating to theStatus of Refugees (commonly called the1951 Refugee Convention). Hence India shall implicate laws to decrease thenumber of illegal immigrants in the country. 2.
What is India’s stand on theRohingya crisis? (80-100 words) Asstated by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees,Antonio guterrs, India has been a highly helpful and generous country inaccepting the illegal immigrants. Along with other refugees, India has allowedthe Rohingya people into the nation. They treat these people as a part of otherrefugees and provide them with shelter and food. But, the government want theillegal refugees like the Rohingya to move out of the country as stated by theSupreme Court as, there is still a problem of lack of resources that is facedby the people and hence there are difficulties to accept more refugees in thenear future. 3. What steps can India take totackle this crisis? (80-100 words) Therehas been resettlement of refugees in India but it is of no help. It shouldrather take these illegal immigrants as refugees until the problem iscompletely sorted out.
India should be a part of the ceasefire agreement madeby the UN to stop the conflict between the rebel groups. It can also help thegovernment of Myanmar to create a safe atmosphere and conditions for theRohingya refugees to re-enter the country. We can provide the refugees withsecurity in accordance to their government that will help them to move back totheir country.
