Rohingya refugees on Sunday reiterated that they would not go back to Myanmar unless the authorities there fulfil their five-point demand that includes safety and security, and citizenship.
Rohingya leaders came up with the demand at a rally held at a field of Kutupalong’s Modhuchhara (Extention-4) camp in Ukhiya marking two years of their migration.
The other demands include investigation into the atrocity they faced in Rakhine state and punishment of the perpetrators.
Rohingya leader Mohibullah said Rohingyas would not return home until the Myanmar government meets their demands.
The leaders also urged the international authorities to put pressure on Myanmar to meet their demands so that they could return home.
Apart from Ukhiya, the Rohingyas also held rallies and condolence meetings at Unchiprang in Teknaf.
Earlier in the morning, Rohingyas from different camps came to the rally with banners and festoons and chanted slogans.
Condemning the mass killing, rape and brutal torture in Rakhine, Rohingya leaders demanded justice in the international court against those involved in the crimes.
Mohibullah, chairman of Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights, Master Abdur Rahim, Maulvi Chayed Ullah and Rohingya women's leader Hamida Begum spoke in the rally, among others.
