Bangladesh Rejects US Request Seeking Shelter Of Afghan Refugees, Cites Struggle With Rohingyas

on another round of breaking update uh that is coming across what we are getting to know that bangladesh has now turned down the request from the united states to provide shelter to of guns the refugees there who are in a destroyed attempt trying to flee afghanistan abhishek well that is an issue as far as bangladesh is concerned because a request that was made by the united states to open its borders or to the refugees there that has been now turned down well there would be reasons bangladesh would do that a it has a geographically they are far apart bangladesh does not share a boundary with afghanistan in any manner or not not even close proximity uh there are cultural difference issues also bangladesh bangladesh has its own problem of plenty in terms of population a b they are so far as migrants are concerned or illegal migrants are concerned they are already having a big issue with the rohingyas who have you know migrated in thousands and hundreds of thousands and are uh settled in the caucasus bazaar area of bangladesh and uh it’s a humanitarian crisis already in their hands so i think bangladesh has its hands full apart from the fact that uh there is no cultural proximity uh forget about geographical geographical proximity uh by which they would uh want to host more refugees uh having said that uh i think uh there is a genuine case of uh refugee management emerging so far as uh those in afghanistan society who have been part of the government last two decades who could be targeted taliban is as of now as a perhaps perhaps as a tactical measure not indulging in reprisal killings for which they were known in the first term uh we have seen some out of hand actions happening in in in kandahar and hirat but then by and large military elements particularly have been quite restrained but then this might not remain so after a government the proper government is in place and that’s why there are apprehensions among those who have you know helped the global agencies function for the last few decades in afghanistan and kabul and other provinces and districts towns even villagers those who associated themselves with the us the u.n with other nations with india for example now for example india has built one development project each and every uh province every one of the 34 provinces of afghanistan to the tune of about spending to a tour of about three billion dollars including the afghan parliament the afghan supreme court uh the iraq road the the the salma dam which is called the afghan india friendship dam a cricket stadium on the outskirts of kabul another one in hirat so i think uh uh which also happens to be the culture capital of afghanistan uh so i mean if those people who associated themselves with these indian projects if they get targeted what happened so obviously some moral responsibility for india or similarly for the united states uh i mean the number of translators who were on the roles of americans uh that in itself is becoming a unanimous humanitarian crisis how to accommodate them in case they are targeted by the taliban so there’s a debate there in the united states it’s a debate in norway it’s a debate in the u.n offices it has a debate in india in fact earlier in the morning we saw the ministry of home affairs going public with the decision of coming out with the faster processes of uh of of uh e-visas for the afghans who want to uh migrate or uh get out of afghanistan on humanitarian grounds so bangladesh perhaps is going to be a very small component of the larger refugee management a lot of responsibility will come on nations that taliban does not see with friendly terms including the united states even india and that is something which all these nations will have to handle no abhishekar didn’t we see that happening with pakistan too because on one hand pakistan would want to portray that it kind of supports taliban and one stability and peace in the region but when it comes to sharing of borders it is being said that they do not have enough resources to take any more refugees there from afghanistan so they are also something some in a way are refusing or turning down to take any uh afghan refugees saying that they do not have enough resources to shelter them well you see amita rightly mentioned but there are some facts you know uh the biggest pashtun city in the world is not in afghanistan it’s karachi in pakistan uh if you go by a per square kilometer density then perhaps there are more pashtuns in peshawar and the northwest uh frontier province the first while northwest country province which is now called kebab instead of afghanistan and we know for the fact that the pashtuns do not recognize the durian line as an internationally accepted border between afghanistan and pakistan so obviously the pakistanis also have their hands full but they have a bit between a million to three million afghans already in their various cities and provinces including in balochistan uh sindh and uh about what is important is that uh because of the geographical proximity they might have a little more to handle and that is why we have seen some of the borders were close shut down because pakistan thought that they can’t handle more but then it’s a crisis of their own making they have bagged armed sustained uh provided strategic model every kind of guidance to the taliban so obviously if this kind of fallout happens they have to take the brunt of that having said that other neighbors including tajikistan uzbekistan turkmenistan all those nations here that have border with the afghanistan have concerns about the refugee crisis planning out and there has to be a global response to that all right abhishek thanks very much for joining in and giving us a detailed point of view what really is prevailing in afghanistan because uh there has been a lot of concern that has been growing especially what happens to the afghanistan citizens there because they are in a destructive attempt trying to flee up from the water nation and every mode of transport that they have been trying to get in we have seen that happening there at the kabul airport the crisis the crisis that ensues there but there is also a crisis that also continues for all of the countries that are bordering afghanistan for now especially when it comes to the access acceptability of the afghan refugees whether or not they will be opening their borders for them but for now bangladesh has turned down that request
