Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday assured of standing beside the fleeing Rohingyas, who have taken refuge at Cox's Bazar, until their return to Myanmar.

The Prime Minister came up with the assurance while visiting Rohingya camps and distributing relief materials among the Rohingya refugees at Kutupalong Bazar in Ukhia of Cox's Bazar.

She said Bangladesh is giving shelter to the fleeing Rhingyas on humanitarian ground.

Sheikh Haisna called upon all to remain alert so that none can make fortune capitalising the helplessness of the Rohinya.

She praised Bangladesh Army, Boarder Guard Bangladesh and Coastguard for serving the Rohingya refugees

The PM also called upon the Myanmar to bring back the Rohingyas as they are its citizens.

UNB adds : She also said Bangladesh wants to maintain peace and good relations with its neighbouring countries, but it cannot accept 'unjust acts' the Myanmar government are committing.

"Still, the fire is burning there...people can't find out their family members...the bodies of infants and women are floating on the Naf River, these go completely against humanity and are violation of human rights. What sin and crimes these innocent children, women and people have committed...we can't tolerate such activities," the Prime Minister bemoaned.

She further said, "We want peace, we want good relations with our neighbouring countries, but we can't tolerate and accept any injustice."

Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh protest these injustice and inhumane attitude towards the Rohingya people in Rakhine state, and renewed her call to the international community to mount pressure on the Myanmar government to take back their nationals.

"Myanmar has to take back their nationals, give them a safe place to live in their homeland. The international community should put pressure on the Myanmar as they're committing such atrocities on Rohingya people... this has to be stopped," she added.

The Premier reached at Kutupalong camp at about 11:40am to see herself the condition of Rohingya refugees.

Earlier, she reached Cox's Bazar Airport at about 10:15am by a flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines.

So far, three lakhs Rohingya intruded into Bangladesh since August 25 following the fresh persecution in the Rakhine State of Myanmar.
