    Sorry, Who is Bangladesh at war with right now?

    As far as I know, Refugees are from countries at war. Anything else and they are just immigrants.

    One hundred years ago, India, Pakistan, Bangla Desh, Burma, were all one county, British India. Partitionining it was a very bad idea.

    India , Pakistan, Myanmar  and many others  in this region are really seriously racist but as they’re not white they get way with it and no one challenges them , and if you do, YOU are the racist.

    Complete double standards!

    Myanmar has not recognized the Rohingya among its ethnic groups under a 1982 citizenship Act, and the Myanmar government terms them 'Bengali' to paint them as recent migrants from Bangladesh. UN customary law says refugees cannot be forcibly returned to a place where they face persecution. The Rohingya are now currently stateless, according to Myanmar law. India is not an asylum country, and decides cases ad hoc. However, India has previously accepted many other refugees. It is against UN policy to leave refugees stateless.

    In Europe, also if Libya can be thought about a safe nation, it would likewise decline to take back evacuees who have actually gone across the Mediterranean. Turkey will only take back evacuees it has actually agreed to take back under the 2016 Evacuee Arrangement and that with some unwillingness.

    If muslim majority countries won't take them, why should India or any other country have to deal with them? If they care more about people making fun of their prophet than fellow muslims, the rest of the world should make fun of their prophet until they take these people in.
