It’s High Time To Say ‘No’ To A Discriminatory Quota System – OpEd


In recent days, Bangladesh is seeing student protests in many parts of the country, esp. in the university campuses. The protesting students have valid reasons to protest about a quota system that they find highly unfair and discriminatory. A whopping 30% of the well-paid and massively over-subscribed Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) posts are reserved for the family members of those who fought during the liberation war of 1971, and another 10% for women, 10% for districts, 5% for ethnic minorities and 1% for the disabled/handicaps. This leaves only 44% of the jobs reserved for merit to roughly 98% of the applicants.

The only one solution to the Rohingya crisis

Tribune Editorial
Publish : 22 Jun 2024,

The ethnic cleansing of Myanmar’s Rohingya population has been one of the most prolonged humanitarian crises in human history, one which has led to the exodus of more than a million of the Muslim minority to seek refuge in Bangladesh where they are currently subsisting in various camps.

The Arakan Army has called for the mostly Rohingya residents of Maungdaw to leave, a month after it was accused of mass arson attacks in a neighboring township. 

A powerful ethnic armed group in Myanmar’s west says that it is on the verge of capturing Maungdaw, a mainly Rohingya town close to the country’s border with Bangladesh, and has called on its residents to evacuate as a matter of urgency.

In the late evening of Friday 17 May 2024, Rohingya neighbourhoods in the town of Buthidaung in Myanmar’s Rakhine State were disturbed by an ominously familiar sight. Armed gunmen had come to their doors and ordered them to leave before the gunmen set their houses alight. If they refused, they were told, they would be burnt with their house.

The attack on Buthidaung – where thousands of Rohingya Muslims had sought refuge – has been called a “turning point” in what has been dubbed a “slow-burning genocide”

Whose Justice? Rohingya Perspectives on Post-Atrocity Justice

JUST SECURITY
by Rebecca Hamilton
June 11, 2024


Over the past two decades of listening to survivors of atrocity crimes – including the perspectives shared in a recent survey of Rohingya survivors of genocidal violence in Myanmar – I have seen time and again that while the desire for justice is universal, the question of what justice means in any given community (and for different individuals within any given community) is often very particular and highly influenced by local context. There is nothing terribly surprising in this observation. What is striking, however, is the degree to which the professional community working on and around international criminal law (ICL) (and I include myself in this) often fails to absorb the full implications of this reality.

Prioritizing safety in the Rohingya camps

Dhaka Tribune
Tribune Editorial
Publish : 11 Jun 2024, 


It is a matter of great concern that at least three Rohingya refugees were killed and seven others injured when a clash broke out at a camp. What is more concerning is that incidents of violence and unrest have only increased in frequency over the years, and this volatile environment at the camps could have ramifications that soon get out of control.

Who is the face of modern ethnic hatred? Figures like Netanyahu, Milosevic, Karadzic, and Min Aung Hlaing come to mind, but Twan Morn Naing is the latest contender. Not only is he the brother of Twan Myat Naing, the Commander-in-Chief of the Arakan Army and another voice of genocidal rhetoric, but Twan Morn Naing is carving his own path in the annals of hate.

Evidence of Arakan Army culpability in mass arson attacks on Rohingya homes in western Myanmar's Buthidaung township – where satellite imagery has confirmed that more than 400 homes were burnt to the ground – poses a serious challenge to the anti-junta opposition.

International courts are still investigating the Myanmar military’s slaughter of the country’s Rohingya Muslim minority in 2017 that the United States has called a genocide. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya fled to Bangladesh and those who stayed faced persecution from the junta. Now a new threat to the group is looming, this time at the hands of a powerful rebel force.

Two recent fire incidents destroyed hundreds of houses at Ukhiya Rohingya camp in Cox’s Bazar. The first fire incident occurred on May 24 and the latest on Saturday. The Rohingyas have always referred to the fire incidents at the camp as sabotage. However, they also mention that some unknown people or outsiders had set fire to the camp.

Officials of law enforcement agencies in Bangladesh have been consistently saying radical Islamic militancy outfit Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) is involved in murders, and members of this outfit regularly enter Bangladesh from Myanmar and commit a series of crimes while they also run drug peddling, arms trafficking, human trafficking, and kidnapping.

Recently, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan told reporters that Rohingya camps in Bangladesh may become the hub of international terrorists. He said, “There may be an influx of arms. Many things can happen. And we already see some signs of these”.

Once-Welcomed Rohingya Refugees Now Face Hostility From The Hosts In Bangladesh

Eurasia Review
May 30, 2024

The number of refugees has sharply increased in recent decades, reaching 37.8 million in 2022. Amidst this surge, host communities—locals residing in areas where refugee camps are situated—are also positively and negatively impacted by the refugee influxes. The negative impacts include competition over scarce resources and in the unskilled labor market. While the international media and aid organizations put the spotlight on assisting refugees, the challenges faced by host communities are frequently sidelined.
