Bollywood actress, Koena Mitra, accuses the West Bengal government of settling illegal Rohingyan immigrants

Bollywood actress, Koena Mitra, tweeted on Saturday on Rohingyans being provided with a safe haven in West Bengal. She accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of giving Rohingyans land and settling them in the state despite Myanmar and Sri Lanka throwing them out because of their terrorist activities. She also requested the Prime Minister and the President to help the state.

Earlier, she had tweeted a quote of Ashin Wirathu, the leader of the 969 movement, where the Buddhist Monk says, “You can be full of kindness and love but you cannot sleep next to a mad dog.”

The TMC government has gained some notoriety in recent times due to its perceived Muslim appeasement. According to a recent to the Ministry of Home Affairs, 40000 Rohingyans staying across India have been instructed to settle in Bengal.

The Central government has maintained that the Rohingyans are illegal immigrants and a national security threat and must be deported. Not too long ago, an Al-Qaeda operative was arrested while trying to recruit Rohingyas in India amidst reports that terrorist organizations are radicalizing the ethnic community. The Rohingya crisis also threatens to destabilize India as certain Muslim clerics are issuing grave threats of riots and violence over the Central government’s intention of deporting Rohingyans. There have also been reports of Rohingya terrorists slaughtering Hindus in Myanmar.

Koena Mitra is the latest among the growing list of voices demanding the deportation of Rohingyans. Currently, Supreme Court is hearing a petition to prevent the deportation of Rohingyans filed by Prashant Bhushan where the petitioners are two Rohingya immigrants.
