30 days gone, Ummah yet to bail out devastated Rohingya Muslim refugees

About 30 days have gone and the Ummah is yet to bail out devastated Rohingya Muslim refugees.


It was 30 days ago, when a fire most probably started due to short circuit gutted mosque, madarsa and a few other buildings at the Rohingya Muslim refugee camp in Nooh. An elderly who had sustained burn injuries in the fire succumbed to his injuries later on, said social activist Anisur Rahman.

Then the activist had shared photos, requesting people to come forward. OT.COM also carried a report on April 13. It was expected that somebody from the Ummah would come forward but nothing like this has happened.

Since then nobody is coming forward to build temporary mosques and religious school for the devastated Rohingya Muslims, he said.

“I have approached many people informing them about the problems of the refugees will little success. A few days ago I even posted those photos on my timeline requesting people to come forward. Till now there is no success. In the recently held elections, lakhs were spent on posters on the walls and many among them are unmoved by the agony of these poor refugees,” said Rahman, who has been at the forefront to raise money so as to build makeshift building for them.


People are not able to offer prayer in group due to the demolition of the mosque in the fire, said Rahman, adding that children’s study to has been hit hard.

However, Rahman is hopeful that something positive might come up in next few days. He with some activists played an important role in building temporary school for the Rohingya Muslims in Kanchan Kunj close by Kalindi Kunj.
