The Rohingya want to return to Myanmar. However, before returning, they have demanded certainty from the government of that country. And they have threatened that the situation may get heated if they try to return home without fulfilling the conditions.
Thousands of Rohingya rallied at the Kutupalong camp in Cox’s Bazar on the two-year anniversary of arriving in Bangladesh on Sunday.
Rohingya leaders said they would not go back if their demands for citizenship and recognition as Rohingya, the return of their homes and property, security and justice for torture were not met. Trying to send them there until these conditions are met can make the situation worse.
On this day two years ago, almost a million Rohingya entered Bangladesh in one day to escape the persecution of the Myanmar army. And since last year, they have been observing this day as the Rohingya Genocide Day.
The leaders were planning to hold millions of Rohingya rallies in the morning to commemorate the day from 8 am to 12 pm.
Yesterday, the Rohingyas started gathering at the rally with a procession from different camps from 8 am. Within hours, a few hills and lower playgrounds of Madhurchara were filled in the presence of millions of Rohingya.
The Rohingyas who came to the rally have come after many Rohingya wearing a T-shirt, which says ‘We want justice.’ However, most of the Rohingya national garment caps came only after white shirts and lungi.
At that time the slogan was, ‘Want to return home safely, seek justice for those involved in genocide. Want to return citizenship.
The rally called for the intervention of the international community to impose pressure on Myanmar to accept five conditions, including civic dignity. The demand was raised by the Myanmar government in talks with the Rohingya about Myanmar’s citizenship.
The Rohingya leaders said they had to remain united at all times. If you have to go back to Myanmar, go together, cross the border together. At that time, the Rohingya stood up and shouted support to the leaders.
Additional security measures were also taken in the area surrounding the rally.
During the rally, special prayers were held for those who were killed and tortured by the Myanmar army. He also thanked Bangladesh for providing shelter to the Rohingya.
Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar’s Rakhine state began to take refuge in Bangladesh since the eighties. However, the largest is known as the eel on August 25. Now more than 1 million Rohingya are living in Bangladesh.
Although the deadline is set to take them back several times, Myanmar’s Taliban and Rohingya are withdrawing because of security assurances.
The first deadline for the Rohingya retreat was set on November 7 last year. No one was sent to Rakhine because Rohingya did not agree. On August 22, when the second round of deportation began, the Rohingya rebellion also collapsed in the second round.
The list of 3,600 Rohingya from Myanmar was given to the Bangladesh government for deportation.
More than 700,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh after being subjected to various violence and persecution, including the assassination and assassination of Myanmar’s army and their allies, on August 27 at several security posts in Rakhine.
At least three and a half million Rohingyas who had fled to Bangladesh to escape torture for various reasons from 12 to 25 were already in different shelter camps in Cox’s Bazar.
Following this, the Bangladesh-Myanmar repatriation agreement was signed on January 27 under international pressure to withdraw the Rohingya. On June 7 of the same year, the Myanmar and UN agencies also signed a deal on the Rohingya retreat in Rapido. According to the agreement, the date of return of the Rohingya was fixed on November 7 last year. But the initiative failed to prevent the Rohingya from returning to their homeland in fear of being attacked again.
In July this year, a delegation led by Myanmar’s Foreign Secretary Mint Tho visited the Rohingya camp in Cox’s Bazar as part of a new initiative to retake the Rohingya in July this year. The two-member team held talks and meetings with the Rohingya for two days. The meeting highlighted the demand for Myanmar citizenship and independence in return for the Rohingya.
