Priyanka Chopra Should Not Have Met Rohingyas: BJP Leader Katiyar

Rohingyas should not live in India and neither should those who sympathise with them, BJP leader Vinay Katiyar said on Thursday, days after Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra visited Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.

The actor, a UNICEF goodwill ambassador, visited the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar on Monday and described the crisis as "horrific". The 35-year-old actor also urged people to help the affected children.

“VIPs should not visit there (Rohingya refugee camps). This sends out a wrong message. Priyanka ji should not have gone there. These people (VIPs) should avoid going there. Rohingya Muslims should not live here and nor should those who sympathise with them,” Katiyar said.

He added that Rohingya Muslims had killed thousands of Hindus and humiliated their daughters so they should be sent out of the country.

According to the United Nations, nearly 3,00,000 Rohingya Muslims fled Myanmar's Rakhine state to go to Bangladesh after a fresh wave of violence erupted when militants attacked police posts. The Rohingyas allege that the military and Rakhine Buddhists responded with a brutal campaign against them.

Amnesty International has claimed in a recent report claimed that Rohingya militants massacred Hindu villagers during last year's uprising in Rakhine.
