Thousands of Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar have illegally settled in the state of Kashmir. Twitter

Jammu and Kashmir, June 19, 2017:

Living illegally in the Jammu and Samba district, a group of Rohingyas have fraudulently acquired Permanent Residence Certificates (PRCs) and bought land on the outskirts of Jammu Area.


The group has acquired PRCs, Aadhar Cards, and ration cards, The Tribune reported.

The local authorities have been instructed by the Intelligence Agencies to “keep a strict vigil” especially since reports have flooded in that Lashkar-e-Toiba sought to exploit these Rohingyas for executing terror acts in India as well as Bangladesh.

Sayed Hussain, a member of Rohingya group residing in Belicharana area, has managed to buy state land after acquiring ration card, Aadhar card, voter identity card and residence certificate all through fraudulent means. His residential house in Rakh Raipur is raised on the land of the Jammu Development Authority.

It is interesting to note that while the Indian citizens from other states are not entitled to PRCs in Kashmir, illegal Rohingyas from the cross-border have managed to do so.

The credibility of the authority is now a big question as it is no easy task to acquire PRCs in Kashmir especially with the process being extremely cumbersome. It is shocking how some Rohingyas have gotten past it.

Jitender Khurana, Convener of Hindu Jagran Abhiyan, states that the PDP-BJP government has been very accommodating with these Myanmar Rohingya Muslims and has been helping them with various documents such as Aadhar cards and ration cards. These Rohingyas are then committing frauds and crimes against the Indians themselves. If BJP really wants to act in favor of its own people it can stop supporting the PDP, however, due to vote bank politics, this scenario is unlikely to happen.

According to The Tribune report, a case has been registered and investigations are underway.

State Government reports from January 21 of this year estimated 5,743 Rohingyas living illegally in the state of Kashmir. Out of the total number of Rohingyas in the state, only 4,912 possess the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)

The state has already launched a campaign to deport the foreigners.

Initially, the firm announced a feature called Audio Recording in Latin America as a way to make people using Uber there feel more safe.

Ride-hailing major Uber has introduced a new in-app safety feature that will allow drivers as well as riders to record audio during trips.

Initially, the firm announced a feature called Audio Recording in Latin America as a way to make people using Uber there feel more safe. The feature is now available in more than a dozen countries throughout Latin America, including Brazil and Mexico.

"To help protect privacy, the audio file is encrypted and stored on the rider and driver's devices and by default no one can listen to the audio, including Uber. If either user submits a safety report to Uber, they can attach the audio file to their report," the company said in a statement.

Once riders and drivers enable this feature, they can choose to record audio by tapping the shield icon on the map screen and selecting "Record Audio".

Riders and drivers can choose to record individual trips, and drivers will also have the option to leave the feature on while they are online.

Throughout Latin America this feature has been a popular way to promote safe, comfortable interactions while on a trip. For instance, nearly 70 per cent of riders and drivers surveyed in Rio de Janeiro told the brand this feature helped them feel safer when using Uber.

In addition, the company has expanded the capabilities of our RideCheck technology to detect when a trip takes an unexpected route or when a trip ends unexpectedly before the rider's final destination.
