Stop exploitation of Rohingya girls :
It is really a matter of sorrow and shame for us that the BBC has recently reported how young Rohingya girls were being exploited by criminals in Bangladesh. Bangladesh has achieved a lot of international praise for giving shelter to a number of Rohigyas, fleeing the brutal ethnic cleansing operation by the Myanmar Junta. But now it is in the remarkable news cycle again as young Rohingya girls and women are being the victims of sexual harassment. Even they are being sold for prostitution in Cox's Bazar. Apparently the government of Bangladesh and its Security forces have not taken enough steps to stop this type of criminal activity.
Now it is the demand of time that the government will take proper actions against the trafficker to protect those helpless girls. Otherwise the good reputation, Which Bangladesh has earned for itself regarding Rohingya issue will quickly decline.
