The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Wednesday urged the Narendra Modi government to deport Rohingya Muslims but grant refugee status to Rohingya Hindus and provide them with a "secure and blissful life in India".

The VHP's international joint general secretary Surendra Kumar Jain said in a statement that Rohingya Hindus need to be seen in a different light from the Rohingya Muslims, who he alleged were "indulging in terrorist activities".

To handle the Muslim Rohingyas, the policy of ‘no more newcomers, oust the existing ones’ needs to be implemented.

He claimed that Rakhine's Rohingya Hindus don't want Indian citizenship but are ready to relocate to any Hindu or Buddhist majority area in Myanmar.

It is the government’s moral and constitutional responsibility to grant them refugee status and provide a secure and blissful life in India.

"VHP also appeals to the central government to pressurise the Bangladesh government to provide security to the Rakhine Rohingya Hindus. The central government should appeal to the Myanmar government to relocate and settle the Rohingya Hindus to a safe place," the statement added.

Jain said that a VHP delegation will meet the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj as well as the envoys of Myanmar and Bangladesh to request them to take quick action for the security of Rohingya Hindus.
