After a dreadful boat journey, many Rohingya migrants came to Indonesia by an accident. Hundreds of Rohingya migrants are pleased to be spending the holy month of Ramazan in the world’s most populated Muslim-majority state.
The boat people in Aceh region are among thousands of Rohingya and Bangladeshi refugees who landed in nations across Southeast Asia in May when a Thai attack chucked the people- trafficking trade into disorder and incited a local crisis.
People had hoped to go comparatively wealthy Malaysia, but after a months-long journey, was unloaded in low waters off Aceh.
These refugees are not relieved to have ruined in Indonesia ─ mainly in time for Ramazan, which wil start on Thursday. They are not happy to be far from their native Myanmar, a primarily Buddhist state where the Rohingya have been facing discrimination, and they are also deprived of the citizenship.
“I thank God that we are saved and taken to a Muslim state,” said a refuge, who was saved from the shore of Aceh with over 580 other refugees.
He also said that when we fled, it seemed almost unfeasible for Muslims to worship in tranquility, with mosques being destroyed and the militaries preventing them from performing prayers.
