Indian government by going against its rules on Rohingyas coming from Myanmar to India, has allowed more than 1,300 tribal Buddhist refugees from Myanmar’s Rakhine region to enter Mizoram. All these Buddhist refugees from Myanmar had left their homes at Myanmar due to the war taking place between Myanmarese Army and the Arakan Army, made up of Buddhist insurgents.
These 1,300 tribal Buddhist refugees from Myanmar belongs to Chin and some of them belong to other communities of Myanmar. All these have came to four villages in Lawngtlai district. These tribal Buddhist refugees from Myanmar are being sheltered in homes, Buddhist homes, temples and many other places
A month ago Union Home Ministry had given strict directions to the governments of northeastern states to prevent entry of Rohingyas Muslims into the Indian region observing it as a threat to the security of Indian residents in the area . As per the sources, the tensions among refugees and the residents of Laitlang, Dumzautlang, Hmawngbuchhuah and Zochachhuah villages is rising and its is getting dificult for state government to handle the situation.
