Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury on Thursday urged the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC) to play an active role in stopping violence and establishing morality.
“The PUIC can work as a spokesman of universal modality. Being involved in all issues of the OIC, the organisation can play a pioneer role in ensuring socio-economic development of Muslim Ummah,” she said.The Speaker came up with the remarks while addressing the general committee meeting of 14th conference of the Parliamentary Union of OIC Member States held in Rabat, Morocco, according to a message received in Dhaka.
The Speaker also said Bangladesh wants safe, peaceful and sustainable repatriation of Rohingyas through bilateral talks and engaging international community.
“Bangladesh wants safe, peaceful and sustainable repatriation of Rohingyas through bilateral talks and engaging international community, but it depends on the willingness of Myanmar,” she said.
Noting that the Prime Minister of Bangladesh placed a five-point proposal at the 72nd general assembly of the United Nations to resolve the long- pending Rohingya crisis, the Speaker said the peaceful repatriation of Rohingyas is quite possible by implementing these proposals.
Whip Iqbalur Rahim, SM Shajada, Syeda Zakir Noor, Masud Uddin Chowdhury and parliament secretariat’s senior secretary Zafar Ahmed Khan were in the delegation.
