Dhaka: Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim on Tuesday said the Rohingyas fleeing from violence in the Rakhine state in Myanmar, would have to return their own land.
“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has given shelters to the Rohingyas on humanitarian ground. But, they will not be allowed to stay in the country for long period of time and they must return to their own country,” he said.
The ruling Awami League leader was addressing an inauguration ceremony of the 'Shashtha Suroksha Karmashuchi' -SSK (Health Protection Activity) at Madhupur and Ghatail upazilas held at Tangail District Auditorium.
Nasim, also a presidium member of the ruling Awami League (AL), distributed free health cards among the poor in the ceremony.
The minister requested the Myanmar government to bring the refugees back to their country at the quickest possible time and stop barbaric killings in the Rakhine state.
Nasim called upon the world community to put pressure on the Myanmar government to take prompt action to bring their men to back, saying, "India, China and rest of the countries will stand by us to this end."
A total of 121 teams have so far been working in Cox's Bazar areas to give medical assistances to the Rohingyas, he also said.
