The United Nations has passed a resolution calling for Justice and rehabilitation for Rohingya people. Last Monday, the resolution is passed by Human Rights Council and well accepted by its member states.
The current session of the UN Human Rights Council has adopted a resolution in favor of the Rohingya people. The resolution, adopted on July 12, passed without a vote. This is the first resolution adopted by the UN for the betterment of the Rohingya people.
What is the purpose of the proposal?
After much speculation, the United Nations unanimously adopted a resolution on the Rohingya crisis on Monday, calling for justice for the Rohingya people in Myanmar.
In addition, the recently adopted resolution calls for the rehabilitation of the Rohingya people living in Bangladesh.
What else is in the proposal?
Apart from justice and rehabilitation for the Rohingya, the proposal emphasizes a number of other issues, including the provision of punishment for perpetrators of sexual abuse of the Rohingya population.
It also called for the prosecution of those accused of crimes against humanity and war crimes against the Rohingya people. All those involved in the persecution of the Rohingya will be brought to justice under regional and international law.
The background of accepting the proposal
A representative of Bangladesh to the Permanent Mission in Geneva said that Bangladesh, on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), had submitted the proposal to the UN Human Rights Council.
The Rohingya people living in the Rakhine region of Myanmar have been suffering from persecution and oppression for a long time.
In 2017, Bangladesh opened its borders to provide shelter to about 1 million Rohingya people. But gradually it was not possible for Bangladesh to ensure the repatriation of a large number of Rohingya people.
As a result, a large number of people have been living inhumane lives for the last four years. Despite repeated discussions and criticisms, no action has been taken to bring back the people of Myanmar.
An official of the Permanent Mission said that the resolution adopted to ensure justice and rehabilitation of the Rohingya people would be a milestone for Bangladesh. He added that it was one of the diplomatic victories for Bangladesh.
