BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia today called upon the government to provide shelter to the repressed and oppressed Rohingya people of Myanmar on humanitarian ground.
The former prime minister, in a statement issued this afternoon, also urged the other countries and Muslim world to stand beside the people on the same reason.
“I am calling upon all humanitarian states, specially the Muslim world, United Nations, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and other international organisations to come forward to compel the Myanmar government to establish peace and stop the persecution of Rohingyas,” Khaleda said.
Khaleda also held Aung San Suu Kyi led government responsible for the “barbaric repression” on the Rohingya people and termed her as “mastermind of genocide”.
“It is a matter of great regret that no military ruler is responsible for the atrocities, but a Nobel peace prize laureate. We are stunned as how she (Suu Kyi) recognises such massacre after being repressed for long,” Khaleda said.
Khaleda Zia also asked the Myanmar government to stop the genocide immediately so that no Rohingya people are victimised.
