Another movement in the Rohingya crisis seems to open up in the next few weeks...the Rohingyas are pushing to go out of Bangaladesh to go back their country under the same critical circumstances they lived in before and stressed them to leave before.
According to The Guardian reported on Wednesday that Bangladeshi plan to evacuate the Rohingyas from their lands and so the paramilitary troops, police, and army have been deployed in southeast Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar district, where the Rohingya are staying in the refugee camps, to make final preparations to start sending back the first group of the minority Muslim refugees to Myanmar on Thursday.Though all the warnings from the United Nations with the difficulties of the situation!
The Guardian said it had seen and could verify a video in which a Rohingya leader in Chakmarkul Camp is seen beaten.Adding that the leader was beaten in the office of Bangladeshi camp officials, known as CICs, “with a large stick” when he refused to provide them with a list of Rohingya in his camp on Monday.
“They stepped on my neck, I could not stand it,” Ullah said in the footage. “You can see from my face how I was beaten.”
It also quoted other refugees as saying they were reluctant to go back and afraid of the military presence.
“The army is in every corner of the Jamtoli and Hakimpara camps, checking people and do not allow them to move between camps,” one Rohingya refugee in the Jamtoli camp said.
“People are too afraid to leave their houses or eat. Some left our block at midnight using secret paths for other camps, especially Kutupalong, where there is not so much fear about departure ,” the refugee added.
Myanmar and Bangladesh announced earlier this month that they were going to start implementing a previous repatriation agreement in mid-November.
both countries are refusing the Rohingyas so there's a clear warning for another crisis if Bangs insists to dismiss the Muslim Rohingyas from their refugees camps.
The announcement prompted human rights groups, aid agencies, and many governments to raise concern about safety issues for Rohingya back in Myanmar.
More than 700,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh since last year, when Myanmar’s armed forces, backed by Buddhist extremist mobs, intensified a crackdown that had already been underway against the Muslim community in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.
Thousands of Rohingya Muslims were killed, and others only survived by fleeing to Bangladesh, where they now face potential violence as well.
This is while Bangladesh’s foreign secretary and refugee commissioner have several times offered assurances that they would not send the Rohingya back against their will.
Dozens of Rohingya families, who were placed on a list of 2,200 refugees “approved” for return by Myanmar, told The Guardian that they did not want to return under the current conditions.
