Rohingya leaders on Sunday urged the international community to take steps to ensure justice against the genocide carried out against the Rohingya community in Myanmar.

Rohingya leaders on Sunday urged the international community to take steps to ensure justice against the genocide carried out against the Rohingya community in Myanmar.

Thousands of Rohingya refugees gathered for a rally at Kutupalong refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar and demanded justice on completion of two years since the Rohingya influx began following persecution by Myanmar armed forces.

The rally was held on occasion of completion of two years of the Rohingya refugee crisis near the extension field of Camp-4, Block-B at Kutupalong Refugee camp.

Arakan Rohingya Society leader said, “Rohingyas are now united and we want to get back our rights. We will not return without having our rights and security.”

He added: “We want to return our country but it is foolish to keep confidence in the Myanmar government.”

 

Another leader Abdur Rahim said, “We have no wish to stay Bangladesh but we are refugees here after facing inhumane repression in Rakhine state.”

He also expressed gratefulness to the people of Bangladesh and its government for giving them shelter and food during the crisis.   

The Rohingya leaders also said they would agree for repatriation if their demands for citizenship in Myanmar is met and a safe environment is ensured in Rakhine state.

They also asked the Myanmar government to give them recognition as Rohingya community.

Bangladesh now hosts some 1.1 million Rohingyas, including 743,000, who fled the brutal military crackdown in Rakhine since August 25, 2017.
