Dhaka – BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia on Sunday called upon the government to give shelter to Myanmar’s displaced Rohingya people ‘as much as possible’ on humanitarian ground as they are facing a genocide and brutalities in their own homeland. UNB news agency reported
In statement, she also called upon the international community, neighbouring and Muslim countries and the Bangladesh government to make strong diplomatic efforts so that the Rohingya people can permanently live in their own country with security and all civic rights returning there.
“The genocide and brutality being carried against Myanmar’s Rohingya people always touched Bangladesh as its closet neighbouring country. Many Rohingya refugees have long been staying in our country which is densely populated and witnessing shrink in livable land. We’re also facing various social problems for it,” Khaleda said.
She further said, “Despite that, I call upon the authorities concerned to give the Rohingya refugees shelter as much as possible on humanitarian ground to save their lives as we’re the nation attained our independence struggling against genocide.”
The BNP chief said she is deeply shocked and worried over the brutal and planned genocide by the Myanmar’s government forces against Rohingya people. “People having conscience are stunned and shocked over such heinous eradication drive against a minority community. “I’ve no suitable words to denounce such brutal acts.”
The Rohingya people are being gunned down, slaughtered and burnt to death, she said adding, “They’re being evicted from their homesteads torching their houses and burning and destroying villages after villages. Rohingya women are being raped. Even, minor children are not being spared.”
Khaleda deeply bemoaned that it is not any military dictator, but the administration of a democratically elected government, led by Nobel peace prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, is the mastermind of the inhuman and terror acts.
She called upon the Myanmar government to stop the genocide immediately and take steps so that Rohingya people are not subjected to killing, eviction and persecution any more.
The BNP chief also demanded punishment of those involved in the killing, suppression and brutal acts.
She urged all humanitarian states, especially the Muslim world, the United Nations, OIC, and other international agencies and organisations to take strong steps so that the Myanmar government is forced to establish peace and mete out punishment to the oppressors stopping genocide.
“I also call upon the people of my country and all people of conscience across the globe to be vocal against the genocide in Myanmar and stand beside the oppressed Rohingya people,” Khaleda added.
