The Rohingya crisis is gradually becoming more complex. The Rohingya disagreed to the initiative of deportation taken in November last year. Then the retreat was supposed to start from the 22nd of this month and the necessary vehicles were also ready. But this time, no Rohingya agreed to go back. The Rohingyas are still being interviewed. If any Rohingya agrees, preparations have been made to send them back. But it is thought that their decision to not going back is partisan and imposed. No one is giving or can’t give any opinion separately. What is the solution to this crisis?
Almost everyone interviewed is saying the same thing – firstly there should be their citizenship, resettlement of their land, return of looted assets and trial of the abusers. Myanmar is seeking to give them national identity cards and assuring that citizenship will be granted in phases. But they are discontented to accept this assurance. Representatives of domestic and foreign NGOs working in the Rohingya camps also mean that they should not be returned to Myanmar without making a four-point claim. Some international organizations are also voicing their support to the Rohingya. But they are virtually not taking any action to force Myanmar to accept these four-point demands. Some military officials do not even think of taking any action to impose sanctions against Myanmar without restricting travel abroad. In the meantime, they are working for the Myanmar disaster. Myanmar has expelled the Rohingya and wants the Rohingya not to return. If this is the case, is there any guarantee that Myanmar will accept the four-points demand of the Rohingya within the next 100 years? So will more than one million Rohingya stay in Bangladesh permanently? It will make the conspiracy of Myanmar win.
Cox’s Bazar was one of the most prosperous regions of Bangladesh in terms of natural forests. It is now in the last stages of destruction. Extreme disaster has come to the lives of residents of Cox’s Bazar. Is it not the duty of the government to look at this? Why can’t they be transferred to Vasanchar yet? Why aren’t they moved to some other areas? Various sources have reported that some of the influential Rohingya are earning billions from the smuggling of drugs by the Yaba smugglers. They are also involved in arms smuggling. There are strong-armed cadre forces. They too are afraid of the Rohingyas not going. Many feel that if they move away from the Myanmar border they will not want to stay in Bangladesh for a day. Why is the government not taking any action in this regard? They are also involved in terrorism and murder. It is alleged that a local Jubo League leader was murdered on the night of 22nd of August. We want a quick fix to the Rohingya problem. Before that, I would like to provide security for Cox’s Bazar and its residents.
