Topic: Celebrating Eid-ul-Adha as a Refugee in Cox’s Bazar camp is sorrowful- A Rohingya from kutupalong camp remembers celebrating Eid-ul-Adha back in their hometown.
Translation summary: On coming 21st July 2021, one of the Muslims biggest festival Eid-ul-Adha will be celebrated in Bangladesh. Rohingyas had celebrated this day back in their country with freedom and with happiness. “Our child used to be very happy to see cows everywhere. They used to play with them and that was joyful moment for our child and as well as for us as we were able to buy those animals and celebrate these days”- said a Rohingya from kutupalong camp.
The coming festival will be the fourth time after their migration to Bangladesh. He also mentioned how hard their life is now. Some organizations or country sometimes donate some meat but that’s very little. We have no source of income to buy cow or other permissible animal to sacrifice. There are very few families who are able to sacrifice animals, only those who are financially better. Our life here in the camp is becoming worst day by day. We still don’t know how this Eid-ul-Adha is going to be”.
