Despite Dhaka's plea, India refrain from publicly nudging Myanmar on return of Rohingyas from Bangladesh

Notwithstanding recent pleas by Dhaka, New Delhi on Thursday refrained from publicly nudging Aung San Suu Kyi’s government in Nay Pyi Taw to expeditiously take back nearly a million Rohingyas, who had fled ethnic cleansing in Myanmar and took refuge in Bangladesh.

New Delhi, however, discussed with Nay Pyi Taw the development projects in Myanmar’s restive Rakhine State, where the Rohingyas fled from and sailed in small boats across the Bay of Bengal to take refuge in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh.

Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla on Thursday had a virtual meeting with his counterpart in Myanmar Government, U Soe Han. They reviewed the entire gamut of bilateral relations, including border cooperation and upgradation of border infrastructure, the status of India’s ongoing development projects in Myanmar, bilateral trade and investment ties as well as power and energy cooperation.

Shringla noted during his meeting with U Soe Han that New Delhi’s cooperation with Nay Pyi Taw under the Rakhine State Development Programme continued apace. He also noted that India and Myanmar had of late started trilateral cooperation with Japan to create “soft infrastructure” for 15 schools in the Rakhine State.

Foreign Secretary also stated that New Delhi would continue efforts towards ensuring an early, safe and sustainable repatriation of the internally displaced persons in Myanmar.
He, however, did not directly refer to the issue of repatriation of nearly one million Rohingyas, who had fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh.

The press release issued by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) too did not have any mention on the return of the refugees from Bangladesh to Myanmar.

“The progress in the Rakhine State Development Programme, which is being implemented under our development cooperation project, was discussed,” Anurag Srivastava, the spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), said when a journalist asked him if the repatriation of the return of the Rohingyas from Bangladesh to Myanmar had been touched upon during the virtual meeting between the Foreign Secretary and his counterpart in Nay Pyi Daw.

The India-Myanmar virtual Foreign Office Consultation on Thursday came just two days after External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his counterpart in Bangladesh Government, A K Abdul Momen, had a video conference. A joint statement issued after Jaishankar-Momen video conference noted that the two ministers reiterated the importance of the “safe, speedy and sustainable return” of the “forcibly displaced” Rohingyas from Bangladesh to Myanmar.

Momen also told Jaishankar that Bangladesh would expect India, which would start its two-year stint as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, to play during its stint on the horse-shoe table a “more meaningful role” to ensure a safe and sustainable return of the Rohingyas from Bangladesh to Myanmar.

The minority Rohingyas have since long been victims of persecution in the Rakhine State, where Buddhists constitute the majority. They have been denied citizenship and most of them have been stateless, despite living for generations in Myanmar.

Myanmar's armed forces launched the latest military crackdown against the Rohingyas on August 25, 2017, after a militant outfit killed 12 security personnel in Rakhine. With hundreds of them killed and villages burnt down, over 742,000 more Rohingyas, including women and children, fled Myanmar and took refuge in Bangladesh, taking the number of refugees to nearly one million.

Expecting Fascist Sanghis to follow noble principles is like asking Hyenas to be upright and kill their own prey.

Neither will happen and both are experts at selfish skulduggery.

Please its your headache, deal with it. No country would voice concern when it is not in its complete interest. Just as you don't voice concern for Uighurs, Tibetans, Hongkongese.

We don't claim to be their allies or friends. Officially the Government of India claims its biggest ally and friend is Bangladesh. 🤔

I am assuming you are Bangladeshi. If you are our biggest ally then naturally we would expect you to criticise China for agression at our borders. Did we ask you to do that?

So 1971 was our headache too and now you admit that in 1971 war of freedom you wanted to break Pakistan and actually didn't help ( claim of help anyway)us as Messiah .

Well so why do your govt and your inferior people claim that you made us independent?

Ask your people ,if they are legitimate children of their parents , then they should shut their fuking gob when they big mouth about our freedom war .

If you havent ask why should we get involved in an issue that does not impact us.

On the other hand you claim to be a friend but have acted as anything but despite supposed request by GOB.

Lol. It was India who liberated you, but definitely not out of love. It is in our strategic interest. Your freedom fight was nothing without India from arming mukti bahini to actually defeating Pakistan.
Yes stop this fuking whining. However if you still believe that you liberated us for your own interest, then never ever ask any alms from us through your dalals in Bangladesh.

If you have done anything for your own interest,then ask your beggar people to stop asking any favour from Bangladesh by claimy that we liberate you so you have to remain our pet .

However if you really the one who caused the chaos in Pakistan ( as jamatis claim ) , then be sure ,you actually dig your own grave by creating another Pakistan on your eastern border .

However I hope you don't claim the same as jamatis do .

India doesn't ask because we know it is our fight. We even told off US when it wanted to mediate between us. We are not dependent on someone else to handle our issues. It is stupid to expect some other country to fight your war. You start a fight if it is what you want and then may be India will support you internationally and in the outcome. But you expect India to handle everything using its diplomatic currency while you do nothing but cry, just because we consider you friends?

How can BD expect India to convince MM when it itself is considering to push out its own Muslim citizens to Bangladesh?

India does not have influence on Myanmar.

Myanmar is controlled by China.

India cannot even convince Myanmar to take back Rohingyas living in India. How can it make Myanmar take Rohingyas from Bangladesh.

At least openly confront them and prove that you are ally of Bangladesh and china is not . Why can't you do so ? At least China is offering us many things instead of just big talk . But what India is doing actually for Bangladesh other than just creating trouble ?

Why do you talk as if you ahbe any say on the matter? Another Pakistan? And with you lot? Don't joke.
Matter or not, you will see soon . How are feeling when you lost your grip on Nepal ?

You will get worse treatment from us in future if you keep making troubles and continue hypocrisy.

Does your country even have elections?
That's not your business. By the way do your country have election too? Oh yes I know you have .

The election that savages were elected to abuse poeple. Well we don't need that .

With India completely surrounding you?
Do you know Bengali? If not then ask any Bengali for the translation.

" Tomare bodhibe zei gokule bariche sei' .

It's about Krishna who killer kangsa , but krishna was raised in a small tribe and then killed big shark kangsa .

So don't be so enthusiastic because we are surrounded by India .

Literally you can't invade us with all three sides and Bangladesh has access to sea and has hostile population.

Bangladesh isn't Sikkim or Hyderabad, as long as you remember it, it's better for you .

You are but a small fish. If not for China, we would have ignored you. Just don't want you lot to pole vault to our side. Don't stress too much.

Nepalese are our cultural brothers. It might look like we are fighting but if India and China are in a war, Nepalese soldiers will be risking their lives to protect this country. You do not understand it. Please stay out.

Why don't you stay out of this section ?
