Mohib Ullah’s killing upholds Rohingya suffrage more than ever

Mohib Ullah, who at his 40s, was a teacher and emerged as a key refugee leader and a spokesman representing the Muslim ethnic group in international meetings. He visited the White House in 2019 for a meeting on religious freedom with then-President Donald Trump and spoke about the suffering and persecution faced by Rohingya in Myanmar, in which over the years already 1.1 million of them taken shelter inhuman way in Bangladesh. Miserably, he has been shot dead in a camp in Bangladesh by unknown gunmen late Wednesday that came to the international spotlight, including in the Canadian media. 

At latest, in a chilling coverage of this death by the Guardian’s Rebecca Ratcliffe and Redwan Ahmed as well as reports from the other global media and rights group not only appeal for an international investigation about his assassination, but also advocate the plight of repatriation of Rohingya refugees more than ever. Can the world recall what Mohib Ullah addressed to the United Nation’s Human Rights Commission?

He said, “Imagine you have no identity, no ethnicity, no country. Nobody wants you. How would you feel? This is how we feel today as Rohingya.”
