Bangladesh to relocate Rohingya refugees to remote island

Authorities in Bangladesh have controversially decided to encamp tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees from neighboring Myanmar at a remote offshore location.

A committee comprising state officials in the coastal districts of Bangladesh has been set up to direct authorities to help identify undocumented Myanmarese refugees and relocate them to a remote island in the Bay of Bengal, media reported on Monday.

“The committee will assist transferring both registered and unregistered refugees from Myanmar to Thengar Char near Hatiya Island in Noakhali district,” according to an order issued by the Cabinet Division last week.

The order says all the refugees will be relocated to Hatiya Island and required to stay there.

“It has to be assured by taking preventive measures that they (refugees) cannot spread out and mix with the locals,” further read the order, emphasizing, “The identified refugees should be arrested or pushed back to the camps if they try to go out beyond the assigned boundary.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm sorry, but it appears that, according to Bangladeshi governmental officials, these Myanmarese refugees have not been marginalized enough, from their horrific treatment in Myanmar.

Where the hell is the conscience of these officials, that these refugees cannot possibly integrate with local Bangladeshi populations?!?!? Are these people supposed to be some kind of monsters?!?

And what about the kids?!? Will they ever get a chance to achieve an education to elevate their life condition, over and above the grinding poverty to which life in this camp condemns them?!?
