  • Three Nobel laureates are coming to Dhaka, Jolie is invited

Dhaka: Three women of the Nobel Peace Prize will be coming to Dhaka on February 22 in an eight-day visit to the situation in Rohingya. These are Shirin Ebadi of Iran, Tawakkul Karman of Yemen and Meirid McGuay of the United Kingdom. They are coming to Dhaka on the invitation of the “Naripokkho”. Besides, the government has invited world-renowned actress Angelina Jolie to visit Bangladesh too. This Hollywood star is serving as special envoy to the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Asked about the Nobel laureate's visit to Dhaka, one of the three Nobel laureates is a member of the Nobel Women's Initiative. They work for peace, justification and equality. They will visit Cox's Bazar to see the situation in Rohingyas. It is expected that they will tell the world about the real reality of the situation here.

Angelina Jolie, the special envoy of Hollywood actress and United Nations Refugee Organization, has been invited to visit Dhaka to see the situation in Rohingya.

An official said Angelina Jolie participated in the United Nations Peacekeeping Defense Ministry Summit in Vancouver, Canada in November. On the Rohingya issue, he said, "According to the UN report, almost every Rohingya women who have taken shelter in refugee camps in Bangladesh are victims of sexual assault or rape or organized rape. The extent of the MSF treatment is under 18 years of age. '

When can Angelina Jolie come to Bangladesh? In response to this question, the official said that the talks are going on in his tour. He can tour in the first half of this year.

It is to be noted that on 25 August, 2007, the country's military forces started a fresh attack on Rohingya in Myanmar's Rakhine state. The United Nations Human Rights Commission has termed the horrors of this attack as a "text-related example of racial discrimination". The army and extremist Buddhists were forced to flee to Bangladesh after fleeing the country and about seven lakh Rohingya were forced to flee. According to sources, 3,000 Rohingyas were killed in this attack. Besides, two mass graves have been found so far.
