I arrived in Bangladesh on 25th August 2017. I live with my mother and six younger brothers here. I am the eldest son. My biggest concern is that there is no food, especially meat and fish.
In Myanmar, I lived in a village close to the border with Bangladesh. That day (August 25, 2017), the army came and burned my house. My father was shot by a soldier with a gun and died. I was also shot here (abdomen). We couldn’t take care of my wound so we fled right away to Bangladesh, as soon as I arrived in Cox’s Bazar I was taken to a hospital where I underwent surgery.
When it all happened I was home with my father but I didn’t die and I am here today.
It’s hot here, I do not like it. I have not even gone to school. At least I have friends. In Myanmar, I also went to Madrasa (a school that teaches the foundation of Islam). I would like to go to a similar school now. I want to return to Myanmar, because my father is there. I want to go to his grave.
Now, what I need most is gas in order to cook, then medicine. I have insufficient medicine and it does not work.
I think that the government of Myanmar should give citizenship to Rohingya. Then we could go home. On our land, we should be able to move freely anywhere as we please, we should be able to study. And finally violence and discrimination should stop.
I have a favor to address to the government of Japan: help to make Myanmar work towards these changes.
My father was an Imam. When I become an adult, I want to become like my father, an Imam (Muslim leader), I want to teach the Koran to the little children.
