A SC bench comprising of CJI Dipak Mishrais hearing the petition on behalf of 7000 Rohingya Muslim refugees residing in 32 refugee camps in Jammu and Kashmir, who alleged that they are being targeted only because they are Muslims .The SC has postponed the hearing till next Monday.

They are being called at police stations for verification .Police stations have complete records of each and every Rohingya family staying in their jurisdiction .The Rohingya Muslims are cooperating local police in all their inquiries and investigation which are being done at frequent intervals regularly.
So far not a single Rohingya Muslim has been found guilty of the charges of terrorism .But suddenly , now the allegations are being made against Rohingya Muslims that they have been radicalized and they are security risk .
According to a source , the review report by intelligence agencies concluded that Pakistan based terrorist out fits including Lashkar e Taiba led by Hafiz Saeed have penetrated amongst the Rohingya Muslim refugees and therefore Rohingya Muslim community has emerged as serious threat .The Indian intelligence agencies fear that the radicalized Rohingya Muslims can be used to target India .
