The international community should aware that this is not only Myanmar/Burma problem but also this is Bangladesh’s problem since majority of these people are Bengalis from Bangladesh. International community shouldn’t push Myanmar/Burma alone to take the responsibility but should help her to set out the practical solutions to sort out the root causes. By pressuring Myanmar (alone no matter what) to give citizenships to Boat people (whether they are from Bangladesh or not) is not the possible solution.
These very Boat people who are saying they are from Burma (even though mostly they are not) so that they can claim asylum/refugees in thrid countries so that they can resettle in developed countries like in EU, UK or USA. This is the main reason why they are migrating from their motherland Bangladesh. In several medias, we can clearly see that Boat people are from Bangladesh. We believe that this is not right to pressure Burma/Myanmar alone blaming everything. This is the global problem of which all the countries need to share the responsibilities.
The consequences of Rapid population growth, absolute poverty and economic crisis in Bangladesh is the breeding ground for the human traffickers to smuggle Bengalis from Bangladesh out by Boat to escape from Bangladesh is the root cause and we need to find the best possible solutions to sort out these root causes.
As far as we know, Myanmar government is cooperating to help Boat people from Bangladesh.
