Health Minister Mohammad Nasim on Friday said there is no need to create a fresh national consensus over Rohingya issue as it has already been made.    

“A national consensus has already been created over the issue. Leaders of all the political parties are going to Cox’s Bazar to distribute relief among Rohingyas and praising the steps taken by the government,” he said. 

Awami League Presidium Member Nasim came up with the remarks at the 29th national council of Bangladesh Society of Ultrasonography at a hotel in the capital.    

People of home and abroad have stand by the Rohingyas, who entered into Bangladesh in face of persecution in Myanmar, in response of call from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said Mohammad Nasim, also the spokesperson of central 14-party alliance.

“Governments of different countries also welcomed the steps of Bangladesh government over Rohingya issue. Is there anything left to create national consensus?” he posed a question.  

The minister said that problems of a country cannot be solved through killing people.  

“If a country faces internal problem, it should be solved peacefully through holding discussion,” he said.

Nasim said Myanmar has to take back Rohingyas on immediate basis.

“No ill-logic of Myanmar authorities will be accepted. World community has to create pressure on Myanmar to take back Rohingyas,” he added.

Rohingya crisis has become a global issue at present as over 4 lakh Rohingyas were forced to take shelter in Bangladesh after start of torture by Myanmar army on them in last few weeks.
