Prothombarta Desk: The Rohingya people are an Indo-Aryan ethnic group who are considered stateless. They are the devotees of Islam and they inhabit in Rakhine state, Myanmar although their history lies in the region of Arakan since 3000 BC.
Besides Burmese and Urdu, they speak their own Rohingya dialect. According to t Reuters, more than 1.4 million have been urged to abandon the country after the 2012 Rakhine riots. They have been experiencing ethnic and religious persecution, torture, and genocide in Myanmar for ages. To avoid such violence, they have fled to many countries including Bangladesh.
According to the UNHCR, more than 723000 Rohingya people have fled to Bangladesh since August 2017. The government of Myanmar does not recognize Rohingyas as legal citizens which is why they have been confronting discrimination. The refugees living in Bangladesh are suffering from many humanitarian situations.
There is no promising arrangements for sanitation and other requirements. They are living a pity life in the congested refugee camps which are very unhygienic. They are having a food crisis. Women and children are the poorest victims. They are becoming sick as they have less access to health care. They are the worst sufferers during natural calamities.
The most oppressed group in the world is the Rohingya people. Though different humanitarian organizations visit the refugee camps with a view to giving assistance, the government of Myanmar didn’t take such action. If this situation lasts long, it will create greater issues for us.
The government should bring a cordial solution so that they can go back to live a safe life and establish human rights. As it’s become an international issue, people all over the world should raise their voice to solve this problem. We hope this problem will solve soon
