” The Rohingya Community has fallen down from the sky to the earth”
Have you ever heard that there is a community in the whole world which has no nation? I have never heard that there is a community in the world which has no nation.
But according to the Government and some racists of Burma, there is a community which has no nation is Rohingya community which have been living in the Arakan state of Burma for many centuries according to the history. They say that the Rohingya community which have been living in the Arakan state of Burma is from Bangladesh not from Burma.When we look the history of Rohingya community, we can clearly know that this Rohingya community is not from Bangladesh but from Burma because this community have been living in the Arakan state of Burma for many centuries according to the history.
However, I want to ask some questions to the Government of Burma and those racists who allege that the Rohingya community has no nation and this community is from Bangladesh, not from Burma. I can ask several questions against the allegation to the Rohingya community but I will ask only a few questions here are:
(1) Why do you say that this Rohingya community has no nation, this community is from Bangladesh not from Burma while the history proves that the Rohingya community have been living in the Arakan state of Burma for many centuries? Do you judge the citizenship or nationality of a community with history or religion whether it is a citizen of a country or not?
(2) If the Rohingya community has migrated from Bangladesh to Burma, if they go to Bangladesh as refugees because of your persecution inside Burma, why do you have to call these Bangladeshi Rohingyas back to Burma when Bangladesh Government repatriates them? Why don’t you reject to call them back to Burma?
(3) Why do you allow these Bangladeshi Rohingyas to stand in elections and to take up seats in the parliament? Does your constitution allow foreigners to stand in the elections and to take up seats in the parliament?
Thus, on regarding the history and the facts I mentioned above, we can clearly understand that the Rohingya community is not from Bangladesh but from Burma.
I want to clear one very important thing here is: naturally, this Rohingya community must be either from Burma or Bangladesh. This community could not fall down from the sky to the earth. Because Burmese Government says that this community is not from my country and Bangladesh Government also doesn’t accept this community. Has this community unnaturally fallen down from the sky to the earth?
So, Burmese Government should better talk with Bangladesh Government about this Rohingya community to restore them to Bangladesh than alleging them that they not from Burma but from Bangladesh. The way Burmese Government is alleging the Rohingya community instead of compromising with Bangladesh Government to restore them to Bangladesh is not fair.
Therefore, Burmese Government should restore this community to Bangladesh Government if they are really from Bangladesh.If not, Burmese Government should stop such allegation against this community, and should give them their birth right which is called citizenship or nationality.
