Bangladesh: Rohingyas stages demonstration demanding immediate, dignified return

DHAKA, 20 June 2022, (TON): The Rohingyas in their 29 makeshift camps here staged a simultaneous demonstration asking Myanmar to immediately take them back ensuring their security and dignity.

Thousands of Rohingyas joined the separate but coordinated demonstrations with a 19-point demand that included their quick repatriation to their homeland at Myanmar’s Rakhine state with full citizenship status.

Officials said the Rohingyas staged the protests under strict police vigil at their 29 camps, 27 at Ukhia upazila and two at Teknaf.

An official familiar with the demonstrations said “they rallied at their camps carrying placards and demanded involvement of the United Nations, the ASEAN countries, the United States and United Kingdom alongside Bangladesh in their repatriation process.”
