According to the United Nations (UN), the Rohingya refugees are the world’s fastest-growing refugee crisis today.
Moreover, the ethnic people of Rohingya from Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) are now living in Bangladesh for safety because of persecution and repression.
Unfortunately, the government of Myanmar is persecuting them because they don’t recognize them as part of their state.
They are being killed and burned down their villages in their hometowns despite living for so many generations.
Moreover, the Rohingya people are basically being driven away to the country they loved.
Sadly, the world doesn’t prioritize them in helping the Rohingya refugees of over 740,000 who fled to Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
“There’s no doubt that the Rohingya people are one of the most discriminated people in the world. These people don’t have any recognition of the fundamental right of having citizenship to their country – Myanmar.”Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ statement on his visit to the Bangladesh Refugee Camp in 2018
Certainly, these people are living in despair, they are waiting for their rights to be given.
Moreover, they are living a life of fear for their lives because they are experiencing sexual abuse and violence from the military forces of the government.
Hundreds of people have died not only because of the violence but also with the lack of food and medical care for these people.
However, we believe that the UN is doing its part in helping solve this refugee crisis.
But we hope that most world leaders will stand up and start helping these least privileged people of the world by giving them an identity through citizenship.
Our hope and prayers are with all of you, Rohingya refugees.
