Bangladesh had done the right job.At least in this time they have shown the courage to defy the appeal from so called UNHCR.Role of UNHCR is anti bangladeshi since 1978.I had the opportunity to work in Hnila rohinga camp in 1978 & i witnessed the dirty role played by UNHCR people.

UNHCR should not be allowed to work in Bangladesh any more.It`s attitude,role,behaviour and expectations are anti-bangladeshi & exposed now.Bangladesh is not a signatory of 1951 refugee treaty.So let us say good bye to UNHCR.Is the conflict in Arakan created By UNHCR itself for their own existance purpose?

UNHCR should be kicked out from Rakhine (Arakan) State, Myanmar.

UNHCR, get out of Rakhine State and never come back!!!

What actions respond by UNHCR when refugees become arsonists and riot???

Mr Khan,please view the TV interview of UNHCR representative in Bangladesh & then justify your comment.Attitude,behaviour & whatnot of the UNHCR people are beyond our tolerence.How can they call for opening the border for peoples of another country?Why they want to dictate terms to our govt?At least i am happy that you responded.Please enquire about this organisation.I think you are Mr Khan & not Mr Kahn.Thank you

Mr Khan,please enquire what Craig Sanders of UNHCR is doing in Bangladesh.He had violated Govt ban to visit the troubled area.He even did not seek permission from a soverign state which is a member of UN to go there.Being a foreigner can he do that?See,look & feel what UNHCR is.Please remember my country does not depend upon anybody at least not upon UNHCR.This conflict was created by UNHCR in Burma for survival of the organisation itself.This is our belief.Thank you.

Dear Mr Hasan and other Bangladeshi citizens, I am a Burmese who live in Burma. I would like to ask you some questions about Rohingyas?
Please answer me sincerely.

Are Rohingyas Bengalis or mixed race of Bengali and other race?

Do they live in Bangladesh and How many?

If they are neither from Burma and nor Bangladesh, where did they come from?

Why are they called refugees by UNHCR and some agencies when they give us all Bangladesh and Burma and India, too many problems??

UNHCR always protects Rohingyas in Rakhine (Arakan) State and ignores Rakhine (Arakanese) residents who live in Rakhine State.

UNHCR never protects original Rakhine residents but Rohingyas.

I completely agree that "This conflict was created by UNHCR in Burma for survival of the organisation itself."

Dear Mr Ricardo da Silva,Whats about the Rakhains living in Coxbazar& Patuakhali& about the Tribal people in CHT.They all migrated to Bengal from Burma.So do not raise the issue of originality.We do not treat our Rakhains & Chakmas as foreigner as you do with Rohingas.No Rohingas live in Bangladesh but there are about 05 lac illegal Rohingas from burma are now in bangladesh.Rohigas are not Bangali or mixed race with bengali people.Thank you.
