Rohingya Muslims can be misled, exploited to destabilise region: Bangladesh envoy

Rohingya Muslims can be misled, exploited to destabilise region: Bangladesh envoy

He said, Bangladesh PM has emphasised that Rohingyas must be allowed to return to their country where they can live in safety and dignity.

Ambassador's remarks came a day after the Indian Government, in its affidavit to the Supreme Court, said that the presence of Rohingya Muslims in India is a serious security threat to the country.

"The worldwide community and particularly the OIC should take all measures to make the government of Myanmar put an immediate end to the violence against the Rohingya Muslim community and bring those responsible for the atrocities to justice".

"We have told Myanmar that they will have to take back their citizens".

The UN office in Bangladesh said on Monday that around 415,000 refugees have entered the country since August 25 after the Myanmarese army launched a crackdown on the minority Rohingya community after the series of attacks on security personnel.

A truck filled with humanitarian aid for Rohingya Muslim refugees in Bangladesh has veered off a road and fallen into a ditch, killing at least nine aid workers.

Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi has repeatedly denounced the United Nations probe as unhelpful and vowed that her government would not cooperate with it.

Summary: Hyderabad: Rohingya Muslims, who have taken refuge in India after fleeing for their lives from Myanmar, are not terrorists but they are the victims of Buddhists atrocities.

President Rouhani addressed the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Contact Group on Myanmar saying, Myanmar government should understand that forcing people out of their homeland and displacing them in other countries will not resolve the deep-rooted crisis and Iran is ready to provide assistance to the oppressed Rohingya Muslims.

Aree Arif, a coordinator with the Sheikul Islam Office's Council for Humanitarian Networking told Efe news on Wednesday that a team is preparing to travel to Cox's Bazar next week to supply aid kits to the Rohingya refugees living in overcrowded camps in the city.

More than 400,000 Rohingya have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh since then and the United Nations has said the army's action could amount to ethnic cleansing.

Asked if the previous Barack Obama administration had been too optimistic in supporting Myanmar's transition to democracy, Mr Henshaw said: "I think we always knew that this would be a very hard road to follow, and it has proven to be so".

Alam said Bangladesh had given proposals to Myanmar for talks on the Rohingya crisis, but did not receive any "favourable response".

About 400 people have been killed in subsequent clashes, and a military counteroffensive sent more than 400,000 people fleeing to neighboring Bangladesh. Myanmar's Buddhist majority is often accused of subjecting them to discrimination and violence.

The UN's human rights chief last week deplored Indian government's move to deport Rohingya refugees.
