Indian NGOs, particularly ones linked to Avaaz, are abetting an influx of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar...by sea. These people have earned the name "Rohingya" boat people, who have left Burmese shores, and turned away from refuge by Thailand and Malaysia. They're beginning the set sail for Indian Andaman & Nicobar islands, from where Indian NGOs are using funds sourced from Indian heart-bleeders, to ferry them to mainland-India. India cannot afford to take in Rohingya refugees. They have already become pawns of Votebank politics in the North-East, and as far down south as Hyderabad, where parties like AIMIM are using them as fresh voters. Hyderabad is now home to close to 500,000 Rohingyas, over 90% of which arrived in the last 4 years alone. Rohingyas are adding to the socio-economic strain on Indian north-easterners, which are already applied by Bangladeshi illegal immigrants. An example of an email doing rounds by these NGOs is quoted below (I've removed the hyperlinks).
