The harrowing encounters of the Muslim Rohingya minority group is a testament of the constant struggle for basic human rights which others take for granted, the rights that people are entitled to by virtue of them being human. This ethnic Muslim group constitute around one million of the total 50 million population in the Buddhist majority Myanmar. More than 400,000 refugees have poured into Bangladesh, fleeing persecution in Myanmar.

One response to “Bangladesh Assistance in Rohiynga Crisis: The Need for Scaling-up Relief & Aid

  1. Bangladesh has sheltered Rohingyas for humanitarian reasons. But due to this humanity, the country has been at risk now. We can assume that the crisis will not be solved very soon. And since the Rohingyas are spreading across the country, we are going to face many socio-economic challenges.
