Problems or Challenges:
In October of 2016, an alleged homegrown militant group called the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army attacked some border military camps of the Mynamar government. Since then, the government carried out their killing of the Rohinhya Muslim population and most recently, even the Hindu population in Rakhine State.
Distrust between the government of Myanmar (mostly controlled by the military junta) and the Rohingya has deep-rooted, historical animosity.
The government of Myanmar tends to demonise their Rohingya population, calling them migrants from Bangladesh, and in many governmental notes and discussions, they cleverly and deceptively term them as “Bangalis” — which is nothing short of a planned strategic manipulation of the masses, in other words, a blatant lie.
It is also an affront to Bangladesh, because its majority ethnic community is “Bangali.”
The death and devastation now is so pervasive that Rohingya inhabitants of Rakhine State, mostly Muslims, are pouring in through the Myanmar-Bangladesh border with empty hands.
Run or die
The numbers have risen beyond 400,000, causing serious pressure on Bangladesh. The magnitude of depravity is alarming and gripping; one feels complete dejection at the horrendous state of affairs that they are living in — harrowing conditions with no food, water, medicine, and shelter.
With little children, the elderly, and young women in the family, the Rohingya are fighting off death every step of the way — only with the hope of freedom of life.
As a citizen of Bangladesh and an avid supporter of human rights, I strongly condemn the gross violations of human dignity and atrocities committed in Myanmar.
The most persecuted minority in the world had the choice of clinging to their ancestral homes and face brutal annihilation, or run for their lives.
The border guards of Bangladesh initially tried to push back.
However, when the flood of people rose to thousands, they rightly showed magnanimity and allowed them temporary abode in Bangladesh territory under the open skies; some lucky ones even found make-shift tents.
In 1978, a similar ethnic clash led to thousands of Rohingya entering Bangladesh, but the then government channels negotiated to resettle close to 30,000 Rohingyas
The government of Bangladesh, local bodies, the general public, voluntary and aid organisations, and religious bodies have all played their role, and rose to the occasion by extending support. Our security forces also compassionately reached out to the dying and suffering, providing necessary medical care, as some had bullet-wounds and scars of mutilation and torture.
What can we do?
In this abhorrent situation, we urge the government of Bangladesh to invite global bodies, agencies like the United Nations, European Union, and other communities to step in and broker peace as soon as possible, before more torture, mutilation, rape, and death in Myanmar take place.
Thousands of families have lost their home and agriculture land. Rohingya has ruined their farms, huts, sanitary latrine, crops, Cattle and children educational materials etc. Disable Children and adults , Pregnant mothers are passing days without food, pure drinking. More than 10,000 people have been evacuated because of destroyed road and Bridges. It is difficult to reach all the victims. Now About 5000 disable Children and adults including Physical handicap, Visually impaired ,Intellectually disable ,Deaf Blind people , Pregnant mothers ,old aged have been displaced and these worst for them to live there. Their parents have lost all.
