Acting Ameer expresses concern over the deplorable situation of the human traffic victims; calls the government to stake stern measures to stop this ill business
Friday, 15 May 2015
Acting Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Maqbul Ahmed has issued the following statement on 14th May, 2015 expressing grave concern over the massive casualties of the Bengali and Rohingya refugees in repeated boat capsize incidents in recent times during illegally trafficking into Malaysia, Indonesia and other South-East Asian countries.
“Huge number of Bengali and Rohingya refugees are being killed in recent times in boat capsize incidents in the sea while they are making some illegal effort of trafficking into Malaysia, Indonesia and other South-East Asian countries. Just a couple of days back 469 people had been rescued from Indonesia sea coast and again on 11th May, around 1400 Bengali and Rohingya refugees had been rescued from Malaysian and Indonesian sea coast. They were on plying on boat on life risk just to reach Malaysia or Indonesia unlawfully. We came to know from several media and other sources that around 8 thousand Bengali and Rohingya refugees are still floating on the sea. United Nations also expressed their concern in this regard and asked the concerned authorities to take due steps.
Besides, thousands of Bengali and Rohingya refugees are passing days in hide out in different forests of Myanmar and Thailand. Hundreds of people are reported to be died in such fugitive stage and news are frequently coming about the brutal and inhuman torture, that this helpless Bengali and Rohingya refugees are experiencing everyday over there. I am expressing my deep concern over the inhuman and deplorable situation of the Bengali and Rohingya refugees.
A vested group of human traffickers are conducting this ill business under the backing of some greedy, corrupted and dishonest personnel who are also taking position in the administration. Though news is coming out about the trafficking of thousands of people in the South-East Asian countries, but still our government is totally silent in this regard. All liabilities of human trafficking are lies upon the government. In one hand, it is damaging the image of Bangladesh in the outer world while on the other, thousands of families of the victim Bengali and Rohingya refugees have been put at stake.
In this backdrop, I am urging the government of Bangladesh to take stern measures to stop this human trafficking immediately.”
