Up until today many national and international actors on the global stage have expressed their deep concern at the ongoing problems in the state of Rakaine. Today it is a clear point that Myanmar has got landslide support from China and India even though two regional powers don’t see eye to eye in many cases except this one. The author is a post-graduate student of Int’l relations and a citizen of Bangladesh from Cox’s bazaar. The reality on the ground is witnessed by a witness like him and today a number of author’s friends and seniors getting lucrative jobs in the NGOs working in the Rohingya camps. The author indeed did not want to use this very aforementioned word which is denied by the government of Myanmar since 1982. The suffers will ultimately be the locals of Cox’s bazaar and gradually the whole people of Bangladesh. Today we must address that if there is a conflict with our friendly neighbor, none will win at the end of the day. The international law must be respected by the state of Myanmar and the Rohingyas must stop attacking Myanmar security personnel. Myanmar is a country with more than 100 ethnic groups. There are tensions among themselves. The Rohingys must practice and speak their Burmese language and have respect for their national unity and self-determination. We, the people of people, are already suffering from an over burdened population and thousands of problems. We are a peaceful nation. We don’t want to resort to violence in no way. The people of Myanmar are also wonderful. Once our ancestors has warm realtions with the people of Myanmar . We the people of Cox’s bazaar put on the Burmese clothes and have great respect for their foods which are very popular to the people of our country as well as foreign tourists coming to Cox’s bazaar every day. There is a “Burmese market” in middle of Cox’s bazaar city which has the sellers of ethnic Rakaine communities who are living with us for years with great love and harmony. Hopefully the concerned authority in the state of Myanmar will listen to the cry of 1 million displaced people from Arakan and most importantly the 180 million people of Bangladesh.
