Let’s work together
The 63rd Commonwealth Parliament Conference, which will run from November 5 to 8, is a great platform for Bangladesh to present the Rohingya crisis to the world. With parliament members from 52 commonwealth nations participating in the event, it is crucial that the world knows and understands the various challenges that Bangladesh is currently facing by taking in the Rohingya. For the longest time, the international community has remained silent on the Rohingya crisis, pandering to the false story being sold by the Myanmar government. While that has changed since then, there is still a long way to go in ensuring that the Rohingya people are repatriated to their homeland. But the buck does not stop there. Bangladesh is also one of the countries most susceptible to the effects of climate change. With the developed nations contributing the most to climate change, it is crucial that they are aware of the consequences and participate in helping lesser developed countries like Bangladesh fight its effects. The world must understand that fighting climate change benefits each and every one of us, not just a select few. At the end of the day, the world must work together in these times to face such challenges. It is imperative that we root out behaviour the likes of which the Rohingya have faced and foster an environment of inclusion. The Commonwealth Parliament Conference, thus, is as good a platform as any to come to such solutions, and allow Bangladesh to play a leading role in dealing with global issues.
