Protest outside Myanmar embassy

New Delhi: As many as 300-400 people from different walks of life today protested outside the Myanmar Embassy against the alleged persecution of Rohingya Muslims.

Protesters from various organisations, educationists, sociologists etc. had gathered outside the embassy around 2 pm today and after a few speeches and sloganeering, dispersed around 4.30 pm, police said.

The central government is planning to deport Rohingya Muslims, who have come to India from Myanmar, as it considers them illegal immigrants.
