Now we have to solve this problem by diplomatically or political way or anyhow.
Syed Abul Maksud said that top intellectual personalities are giving speech in today's program. It's a great opportunity for the students to listen from them face to face.

He gave thank to Daffodil International University for taking this initiative.
Prof Salimullah Khan said, there are two type of crisis for Rohingya issue. One is, they are coming like flood water and another is, they have no right to live in their own native land of Myanmar.  So that it's not enough to push back them, but also we have to ensure that they will reside there with complete citizenship and rights. For doing this, Bangladesh will have to create international pressure on Myanmar about Rohingya issue.
Brigadier M Sakhawat Hossain (Rtd) said, our big challenge is, we have not enough knowledge on Myanmar. Our connectivity with Myanmar is so narrow. For solving this Rohingya crisis, firstly we have to gather knowledge on Myanmar. We have to take initiative keeping Myanmar's strength in consideration.
Former ambassador M Jamir said to the young students that, you have to move from facebook and look forward to other medium of internet to know about Myanmar and Rohingya issue.
