Bangladesh: Humanity «dying in Myanmar» — Dhaka calls on Myanmar to stop Rohingya persecution

Hundreds of people rallied in solidarity with Myanmar's Rohingya Muslims, in Dhaka, Monday, as the persecuted minority continues to flee into Bangladesh. The demonstrators called on the Myanmar government to stop the continuous genocide of the Rohingyas. Ganajagaran Mancha Spokesperson Imran Sarker, who attended the rally, expressed that the protesters demand the Myanmar government «to grant them... Еще citizenship and recognise basic human and ethnic rights of the Rohingyas. They must be provided with adequate protection, basic human rights, including food, accommodation, security, education and a right to life with dignity». Bangladeshi activists as well as the members of the Ganajagaran Mancha took part in the rally, holding signs reading «Support Rohingyas» and «No More Persecution». Protests have taken place across the globe over Myanmar's recent military action against Rohingyas in the state of Rakhine after a reported attack by militants left 12 police officers dead. The UN has estimated 270,000 Rohingya have crossed into Bangladesh over the past few weeks, amid widespread reports of indiscriminate killings, arson, looting and rape by the Myanmar military.
