MNA National Desk: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday appealed to the Muslim countries under the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to firmly stand beside the forcibly deported Rohingyas.
‘My appeal to the OIC is to stand solidly beside the forcibly deported Rohingyas in safeguarding their dignity and security. The Holy Prophet’s (SAW) message for us was to stand beside the distressed humanity. When the Rohingya community of Myanmar is being subjected to ‘ethnic cleansing’, the OIC fraternity cannot overlook it,’ she said.
The Prime Minister was speaking at the inaugural session of the 45th Session of the Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of OIC that began with a special focus on Rohingya issue at Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC).
The theme of the year’s meeting is ‘Islamic Values for Sustainable Peace, Solidarity and Development.’
This is the second time that Bangladesh is hosting a CFM after holding the first in 1983, reported news agency.
