Rohingya rights activists in a joint statement on Monday demanded an end to all ongoing injustice, violence and inhumane crimes against the innocent Rohingya people in the camps in Bangladesh.

They said that the innocent Rohingyas, including women, children, elderly and sick people, were sandwiched and killed in the infightings between October 3 and October 7 centring illegal Yaba drugs business. ‘We have loudly and clearly spoken out against such criminal activities because they neither reflect our peace-loving culture and religion nor serve our ultimate interest of restoring our universal rights in our motherland,’ the statement reads.

The Rohingya right campaigners — Ambia Parveen, Anwar Shah Arkani, Hla Kyaw, Mohammed Ibrahim, Mojib Ullah, Khairul Amin, Nay San Lwin, Tun Khin and Zaw Min Htut — urged Bangladesh government to take the issue seriously before further deterioration of the situation.
