The crowd which had Rohingyas mostly from the national capital and its neighboring areas, senior lawyer and the one who filed the PIL in the Supreme Court against the deportation of Rohingyas was also present.
The central government has made it clear that the members of the community who are staying without any papers in the country will be deported; the issue has become a national topic of debate.
“What our demand is that these people who are residing in the country are facing brutal violence in Myanmar, the present government should put pressure on them (Myanmar) for a pro-people decision” said Nadeem Khan, human rights activist and one of the organizers of the protest.
