NEW DELHI, Sept 13 - Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju today slammed attempts to brand India as a �villain� on the Rohingya refugee issue, saying it was a �calibrated design� to tarnish the country�s image.

The Union minister�s comments came two days after UN human rights chief Zeid Ra�ad al-Hussein flayed any attempts by India to deport Rohingyas to Myanmar.

Rijiju said criticism of India on the Rohingyas, who have entered India illegally, undermines the country�s security.

�This chorus of branding India as villain on Rohingya issue is a calibrated design to tarnish India�s image,� he said in a tweet. �It (such statements) undermines India�s security,� Rijiju said.

The Central government is planning to deport Rohingya Muslims, who have come to India due to alleged persecution in Myanmar, as it considers them as illegal immigrants. � PTI
