As a Rohingya refugee, I see a renaissance of my people’s culture in the Bangladesh camps

It is important that genocide survivors such as myself are not seen as merely victims, dependent only on others to take up our cause on our behalf

At the end of last year, the Rohingya crisis gained renewed international attention when the Gambia faced off against Myanmar at the International Court of Justice over the genocide committed against my people.

It was a deeply historic and important moment, which was even watched in the refugee camps for displaced Rohingya in which I live in Bangladesh. Yet, as important as it was to see my former idol Aung San Suu Kyi in The Hague, this was a struggle between second and third parties, overshadowing developments that have been occurring within the Rohingya community itself.
