'Rohingyas making trouble in Ctg, Cox's Bazar, Bandarban' Activist of a number of Islamic organizations including Chittagong unit of Islam Andolon Bangladesh brought out a procession protesting persecution of Rohingya Muslims by Myanmar government after Jumma prayer in the port city on Friday.
The procession was everal lakh Rohingyas, who have taken shelter in the country's Chittagong, Cox's Bazar and Bandarban regions after fleeing their native country to escape persecution there, are creating much trouble as many of them have got engaged with criminal activities. The law and order situation and living environment are being severely hampered in these districts owing to the Rohingya people.
The Rohingyas are involved with arms smuggling, trading of Yaba and drugs and underground political activities here in Bangladesh, law enforcement officials and district administration officials say. Moreover, following the attack on 31 police outposts and one army camp at Rahkaine state in Myanmar on August 25 last, tense situation is prevailing there. Fearing the fresh attack, thousands of Rohingyas have already been gathered at the Bangladesh and Myanmar border area at Teknaf now to enter into the Bangladesh territory.Meanwhile, several thousands of Rohingyas reportedly entered the Bangladesh territory in last week, said locals.  In the mean time, the Additional District Magistrate of Cox's Bazar Khaled Mahmud said, "Cox's Bazar district authority wants to make 50 acres of Balukhali forestland available for Myanmar refugees fleeing a brutal crackdown in Rakhine state. Several thousand refugees who came last year are living there. The ones who are fleeing now will also be allowed to set up makeshift houses to live in there."
"The Rohingya refugees have been asked to take shelter around the older camps instead of being scattered all over the area." Around 125,000 people, mostly Rohingya Muslims, have fled to Bangladesh following renewed violence in Rakhine state, UN workers have said.
They have set up numerous tiny plastic-sheet tents in the five kilometers between Ukhia's Kutup-alang and Thaingkhali. There are similar slums in Teknaf's Howaikyang Union and surrounding places.
The refugees have been coming across various border points, locals said. The slums popping up in random places pose a threat to the law and order situation, they said.
