A few weeks ago from Kashmir to Kanyakumari Muslim leaders, activists and religious organisations took out rallies demanding justice for the prosecuted Rohingyas.
Several rallies were taken out from Okhla too with buses being hired and poster campaigns launched in the locality to drum up support. Many self proclaimed activists were at the helm of the affair.
Looking at the outpouring of supports for the Rohingyas it was understood that things for Rohingya Muslim refugees living in Kanchan Kunj in Okhla would improve.
And when words spread about building toilets for them, many thought that hundreds of thousands of Muslim would rush to give them a helping hand.
But nothing like this happened until an Okhla-based activist Anisur Raman took initiative to get it build on his own.
Rahman said with the initial euphoria over nobody came forward to help them build the basic thing: toilets.
Sharing photos with OT.COM, he said: “The total cost comes up to Rs 40,000. It appears that the initial zeal has petered out and nobody even on the social media is talking about them. Once again the Rohingyas have been left to fend for themselves.”
Since their arrival in Okhla a few years ago, the Rohingyas have been living in pathetic conditions will little basic amenities on land provided by Zakat Foundation.
