Many times, Sikh community has taught us what is the real face of humanitarian value. While the central government is planning to deport Rohingya Muslims, a team of volunteers from Sikh organisation Khalsa Aid has reached at the Bangladesh-Myanmar border to provide relief to the Rohingya Muslims.
Condition Of The Rohingya Muslims: Miserable To Say The Least
Amarpreet Singh, managing director of the Khalsa Aid spoke to The Indian Express that the condition of Rohingya Muslims was miserable, to say the least.
“It was our first day here today and we did a pre-assessment before launching a major relief operation. We had come prepared for providing relief to some 50,000 people, but there are more than three lakh refugees here.”
“They are living without water, food, clothes and shelter. They are sitting wherever they can find a corner. raining, but people do not have anywhere to go. It is miserable, to say the least. We will be providing them langar food (community kitchen) and shelter. We are arranging tarpaulins but since the number of refugees has overwhelmingly exceeded our preparations, it can some time to make arrangements.”
Mr Singh further added that the refugee camp can only accommodate 50,000 people but there is more than 1 lakh Rohingya Muslims. The Khalsa Aid will provide langer till the crisis is not over.
“Children are roaming without clothes and begging for food. Those who do not get space in camps are sitting along roads in hope of getting food from someone.”
