It is learnt that the deputy Speaker Fazle Rabbi Miah has urged Burma to take back the Rohingya Refugees from Bangladesh during a meeting with chairman of Inetrnational Relation Committee of Burma lower house ‘Pyithu Hluttaw’ MP Hla Myint Oo on the sidelines of 133rd Assembly of Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Switzerland on Wednesday, according to the Financial Express newspaper’s report on 23rd October.
In reply to the call, Hla Myint Oo assured him that necessary steps would be taken in this regard soon after discussions with the Myanmar government, according to a Parliament Secretariat handout.
According to the UN refugee agency, there are 200,000 to 500,000 Rohingyas in Bangladesh with only 32,355 of them registered and living in the Kutupalong and Nayapara camps in Cox’s Bazar.
Despite repeated calls from Bangladesh, Myanmar authorities have not responded positively to taking back Rohingya refugees from Rakhine state, the report said.
The government of Bangladesh wanted to entirely repatriate the Rohingya refugees under zero-life safety though Burma daily oppresses Rohingya with fresh territorial double standard policies because currently Bangladesh cannot bear the burden of Rohingya due to its over population.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh does not try against the brutal Burmese regime led by pseudo-reformist President Thein Sein for the long perpetration of crimes against humanity in particular Rohingya genocide in their own birth soil, occupied Arakan, western part of Burma because it might lead weak-deal between the two said governments fundamentally based on border trade.
Currently, Rohingya encounters double standard both in Bangladesh and Burma due to their lack of political field which teaches people how to struggle for survival.
