Boatloads of Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Myanmar have been denied entry into Bangladesh exasperating international rights groups and a Catholic Church official.
Theophil Nokrek, secretary of the Catholic bishops' Justice and Peace Commission, criticized the Bangladesh government for pushing back about 300 Rohingya people.
"It is really disappointing to see Rohingyas again facing persecution in Myanmar even though the country has a civilian government led by Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. Meanwhile, the Bangladesh government has taken an unjust stance by refusing entry and shelter to Rohingyas fearing for their lives," he told ucanews.com.
