Various polemics that occurred due to the continuous influx of refugees, giving rise to a negative stigma in society. This research uses a descriptive analysis method based on data sources in the literature review. The result shows that the Indonesian government's policy towards Rohingya refugees is appropriate based on the maṣlaḥah mursalah perspective.
