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.

The United Nations General Assembly Friday adopted a $3.07 billion operating budget that for the first time includes funding for the investigation of war crimes in Syria and Myanmar.

The budget represents a slight increase from 2019’s figure of $2.9 billion.

The increase was the result of additional missions assigned to the U.N. Secretariat, inflation and exchange rate adjustments, according to diplomats.

These include the observer mission in Yemen, a political mission established in Haiti, the investigation of crimes committed in Syria since the outbreak of civil war in 2011, and in Myanmar after the 2017 crackdown on the Rohingya Muslim minority.

For the first time, the budgets for the Syria and Myanmar investigations, which were previously financed by voluntary contributions, will in 2020 be transferred to the U.N. secretariat’s budget and will receive compulsory contributions from the 193 member states.

Russia proposed multiple amendments during negotiations in the Committee on Budgetary Questions meeting and in the General Assembly plenary session.

Dissenters

At each vote, Russia, Syria, Myanmar and their supporters, including North Korea, Iran, Nicaragua and Venezuela, were outvoted. They all stated that they dissociated themselves from references to investigative mechanisms in the adopted resolutions.

Russia said it would examine its future obligatory payments in light of the vote outcome and predicted an increase in the arrears that currently plague the U.N.’s treasury because of countries not paying enough.

Moscow argued Friday the investigative mechanism was illegitimate, while Damascus stressed that it had no mandate from the Security Council.
