Topic: A Rohingya Youth, Khing Maung is sceptic about the Future of Democracy in Myanmar
Translation summary: The Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw -CRPH and the people of Myanmar have been doing continuous protest against Myanmar's military coup since the Myanmar’s junta seized power in coup detaining Aung San Suu Kyi, President Win Myint and other senior figures from the National League for Democracy (NLD). But Myanmar’s junta is continuously doing brutality, killing and arresting the anti-regime protestors despite the USA, UK and other countries have imposed sanctions against regime. Also, CRPH along with people of Myanmar is strongly protesting against its coup and brutality forming the National Unity Government-NUG as well.
Khing Maung, a Rohingya Youth and Founder of the Rohingya Youths Association-RYA said “I am not sure and say clearly on how National Unity Government-NUG will bring peace and democracy. People of Myanmar are tired of protesting against military.
Finally, Khing Maung said that some countries will be helping Myanmar’s junta for their personal benefit and then some countries will help the anti-regime protestors among the neighboring countries of Myanmar. So, the situation of Myanmar will become very much serious then the Syria unless International Community is comes forward with responsibilities to take necessary actions against Myanmar’s junta only to restore federal democracy says Khing Manung .

Topic: Aid cooperation for the during Ramadan is very disappointing.
Translation summary: In this month of Ramadan, every Muslim fasts all day and organizes a good iftar. But this is not the case for everyone; especially the Rohingyas sheltered in Bangladesh cannot organize a good iftar. Mohammad Jobayer from Camp No. 27 said that Rohingyas from other camps are getting help but the Rohingyas in their camps have not yet received any assistance for Ramadan. Moreover, the Rohingyas who used to work have become jobless due to the lockdown and are fasting practically without eating. On the other hand, Mohammad Ajmal Khan of Camp No. 12 said that they have received additional assistance for the month of Ramadan in previous years but have not received any additional assistance so far this year. Moreover, due to the lockdown, his income has almost stopped. This situation is making it very difficult to spend the month of Ramadan with his ration food.
