On the occasion of the first anniversary of the Rohingya Lifeline Program, I wish to express my heartiest congratulations. I want to express today that after Myanmar’s independence, there was a broadcasting radio channel which also broadcasted in Rohingya language, but after general Ne Win took power, the minority Rohingya had to face systematic discrimination under his rule and we lost everything, including Rohingya language broadcasting. It has been a long time since and now we are hearing again our voice from Washington DC, with the favor of the government of America. I have a great expectation that from this opportunity & platform, we are going to restore our voice from the MRTV program by the Mercy of God. This is a wonderful program, Rohingya Lifeline and I take this opportunity of suggesting one more program if possible, please conduct all key leaders in the Rohingya community for a debate program to find a “sustainable solutions to the Rohingya crisis”.
Thank you so much.
