Rohingya Muslims are not our Problem – Bangladesh Prime Minister

The Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, unfortunately, are being killed in a way as we kill some harmful insects. These Muslims who form a minority there, are facing genocide. Their condition there is worse than ever. The Muslim females are killed after being raped multiple times while men and children are being torn into pieces brutally.

Many Muslims have fled to other countries, yet there are still around 1.1 million Muslims there who are being deprived of life. These Muslims are deprived of citizenship and identity cards. They shall be rescued or they will be killed or starved to death! This is a wakeup call for all the Muslims as well as the rest of the world.

Are you thinking that why are these Muslims living there why don’t they just migrate to other countries? Well, this is the biggest issue for the Rohingya Muslims. You see that Bangladesh is the only Muslim country that is geographically sharing a border with Myanmar.

Bangladesh should open its border for these poor souls, yet what Bangladesh is doing is heartbreaking. While they have allowed entry to a few thousand Rohingya Muslims, they have denied entry to hundreds of thousands of them.

In an interview, the Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wazed said that she should not be asked about the Myanmar Muslims. She claimed that this is the issue of the Myanmar government. The Muslims living there are Myanmar’s responsibility, not Bangladesh’s. So the world shall question the Myanmar government not them!

When asked that these Muslims need humanitarian support and this is an issue of basic humanitarian rules, the moral principles compel the Bangladesh to support and help these Muslims, she simply talked about issues of Bangladesh. She said that Bangladesh is an over populated country and the world must realize that Bangladesh cannot bear the burden of these refugees.

She then commented that things are okay now. Things have improved as no more refugees are coming. But the fact is that Bangladesh’s guards had physically returned these refugees back. There are several pictures depicting that Bangladesh’s guards pushed back the refugees.

According to UN report, 50,000 refugees were pushed back to Myanmar by Bangladesh. However, she rejected all the claims and said that the guards had behaved humanitarian. They provided these refugees with food, water, money, and medicines and asked them to go to their homes (homes or send them to danger zone again?)

When told that these refugees were forced to go back, she simply stated that they weren’t forced but were persuaded! We asked them to return and they did.

When the interviewer claimed that you have sent them back to danger, they fled away and you denied them with the entry, she asked that why shall they let them come into Bangladesh? You shall not ask such questions from me, you shall go to the government of Myanmar and ask them! These Muslims are their responsibility, not ours!

She also said that they have expressed their concern for these Muslims to the Myanmar government. The Myanmar’s government has assured that all assistance is being provided to them and they are treated fairly and that Bangladesh believes that it is true!

This is way too sad, a Muslim country not helping their neighboring Muslim brothers and sisters! We cannot let these Muslims die like this, we need to stand up!

The Turkish government and Saudi Arabia are the two front line states that have given help and support to these Muslims. Turkish president has called Bangladesh to accept these refugees, open borders for Burma Muslims and they will pay for all the expenses. Saudi Arabia has opened up its borders for the poor Muslims and King Salman has granted Saudi Iqama for 1 Million Burmese. May Allah help them! Maldives has also cut down relations with Myanmar in protest to the Muslim genocide in Burma.
