The issue of repatriation of Rohingya refugees is to be on the agenda during Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s upcoming visit to India. This information was given by the Indian news agency ANI in a report today (on June 29). PM Hasina is scheduled to visit the neighbouring country in early September this year.

According to the report, Bangladesh Foreign Secretary Masood bin Momen said in an exclusive interview with ANI that PM Sheikh Hasina will pay an official visit to India at the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. There, she will raise various issues arising out of the illegal migration of Rohingyas from Myanmar to Bangladesh. These include the rise of fundamentalism, drug trafficking and human trafficking including women and children. “The only possible solution for us is the repatriation of the Rohingya to Rakhine State (Myanmar),” said Momen. I am sure that when Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she will also raise the issue of how India can help us in this repatriation effort.

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has requested the British Secretary of State Elizabeth Truss to resettle one lakh Rohingya refugees who are now sheltered in Bangladesh.

He made the proposal during a bilateral meeting with Truss in Kigali, Rwanda, on the side-lines of a Commonwealth event yesterday.

Rohingyas can have a better life and Bangladesh’s unfair burden can be lessened if the United Kingdom, a global leader in justice and human rights could consider resettling one lakh Rohingya refugees, said Momen.

The ethnic minority Rohingya Muslims suffer severe persecution in Myanmar. Following a deadly crackdown by the Burmese army in 2017, some 740,000 Rohingya fled to neighbouring Bangladesh, where they were settled in the southern town of Cox’s Bazar. Five years on, the town is home to the world’s largest and most dangerous refugee camp, with frequent floods, fires and gang wars. In December 2020, the Bangladeshi government decided to relocate some of the Rohingya refugees to a remote island in the Bay of Bengal. Our reporters Alban Alvarez and Mathilde Cusin managed to gain access to it.

Bangladesh: Closing Rohingya Schools and Shops is Cruel Copy

“Bangladesh’s decision to close schools for Rohingya refugee children violates the right to education on a massive scale,” said Bill Van Esveld, associate children’s rights director at HRW. “This cruel decision should be immediately reversed so that Rohingya children can get an education, which will be especially critical for their return to Myanmar when it is safe to do so.” (photo: UNICEF/Lateef - 24 August 2020). 

Bangladesh hosts over 1.1 million Rohingyas who fled neighboring Myanmar during a genocidal campaign by the security forces in 2017. Most of them live in and around Kutupalong and Nayapara refugee camps in the Cox’s Bazar region - which have grown to become the largest and most densely populated camps in the world.

The deportation of a Rohingya woman back to Myanmar has sparked fears that India is preparing to expel many more refugees from the country.


Hasina Begum, 37, was deported from Indian-administered Kashmir two weeks ago, despite holding a UN verification of her refugee status, intended to protect holders from arbitrary detention. Begum was among 170 refugees arrested and detained in Jammu in March last year. Her husband and three children, who also have UN refugee status, remain in Kashmir.

Myanmar’s military government on Tuesday rejected U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s declaration that the Min Aung Hlaing-led military committed genocide against the Rohingya minority in 2016 and 2017.

The Foreign Affairs Ministry said in a statement that “Myanmar has never engaged in any genocidal actions” and harbors no “genocidal intent” for any group. Blinken’s remarks were “politically motivated and tantamount to interfering in the internal affairs of a sovereign state.”

The formal declaration, announced at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, is a significant step and comes after the Trump administration declined to classify the atrocities -- including mass killings, rape, and torture -- as genocide or crimes against humanity.

Reports: US to declare Myanmar’s 2017 atrocities against Rohingya a ‘genocide’

The move will bring greater scrutiny on the Myanmar military, says a Rohingya activist.

Ten Rohingya men with their hands bound kneel as members of the Myanmar security forces stand guard in Inn Din village of Rakhine State, Myanmar, Sept. 2, 2017.

The United States is set on Monday to declare as a genocide the Myanmar military’s 2017 deadly crackdown against the Rohingya Muslim minority that killed thousands and forced an exodus to neighboring Bangladesh, news agencies reported.

Human rights activists and a U.S. lawmaker Sunday welcomed the move as overdue and essential for stepping up pressure on the military, and making it accountable for crimes against humanity. According to U.S. investigators, the military was responsible for atrocities including mass killings, gang rapes, mutilations, crucifixions, and the burning and drowning of children.

The world should not allow the one million Rohingyas sheltered in Bangladesh to be the cause of instability in the region, said Japanese Ambassador to Bangladesh Ito Naoki today.

He also urged all to join hands for a sustainable solution to the crisis.

"We should work for creating an enabling environment in Rakhine state of Myanmar for early repatriation," he said at the inaugural of a seminar today.

Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies (BIISS) and Japanese Embassy in Dhaka co-organised the event titled "Geopolitics of Indo-Pacific and Reconnecting the Bay of Bengal Littorals" at BIISS auditorium.
