The Supreme Court is hearing a petition challenging the Centre’s decision to identify and expel thousands of Rohingya refugees. Now is a good time to remind ourselves of India’s history of welcoming refugees.

As historian Ramachandra Guha points out, “Our refugee policy may not have been perfect – we may not have provided them dignified healthcare or proper housing. But we never turned back persecuted people.”
