A rising threat

  • Published at 06:04 pm November 11th, 2019
Bangladesh is now hosting over 1.1 million Rohingyas who have fled their homeland in Rakhine State after being persecuted by their own country Mahmud Hossain Opu/Dhaka Tribune

The Rohingya population remains vulnerable to the manipulative grasp of radicalization

There is no denying that the Rohingya have remained displaced for way too long, having fled unimaginable persecution at the hands of the Myanmar army and now residing in refugee camps across the border.

Their suffering remains a horrifying reminder of the terrors that certain communities go through in the world, even in this day and age, and should push us towards fighting for humanity and the right of every human being to live a life free from persecution and violence.

In this regard, Bangladesh has undoubtedly gone beyond the call of duty to provide shelter to the fleeing Rohingya -- helping them with food and shelter, and rallying the pressure on Myanmar so that the international community takes notice and acts.

However, what can also not be denied is that, the longer the Rohingya -- of whom there are over a million within our borders -- remain displaced, the bigger a threat the crisis becomes to our national security.

In addition, as the PM herself has expressed, and we cannot help but agree, this threat is not merely at the national level, but stands to be one for the entire region.

The Rohingya population remains vulnerable to the manipulative grasp of radicalization and criminal elements, and a solution must be come to as soon as possible.

It is now up to the international community to make that happen.

The international community must put the pressure on Myanmar so that they take the Rohingya back, with their rights fully restored. There is no room for inaction anymore.
