प्रियंका चोपड़ा पर भड़के BJP सांसद, बोले- ‘रोहिंग्या से हमदर्दी रखने वालों को देश में रहने की अनुमति नहीं दी जानी चाहिए’

बॉलीवुड अभिनेत्री और यूनिसेफ की गुडविल एंबेसंडर प्रिय‍ंका चोपड़ा इन दिनों चर्चा में हैं। दरअसल अभी तीन दिन पहले प्रियंका चोपड़ा बांग्लादेश के कॉक्स बाजार गई थीं, जहां म्यांमार से जान बचाकर भागे रोहिंग्या मुसलमान शरणार्थी कैंपों में रह रहे हैं। अभिनेत्री ने इस कैंप की तस्वीरें शेयर करते हुए ट्विटर पर लिखा, ”मैं यूनीसेफ की तरफ से बांग्लादेश के कॉक्स बाजार में हूं। ये दुनिया के सबसे बड़े रिफ्यूजी कैंपों में से एक है।”

लेकिन प्रियंका चोपड़ा के इस शरणार्थी कैंप में जाने को लेकर भारत में एक नया विवाद शुरू हो गया है। कुछ लोगों को प्रियंका का वहां जाना काफी अखर रहा है। कुछ लोग प्रियंका के दौरे को धर्म से जोड़कर आपत्ति जता रहे हैं तो कुछ लोग भारत की दिक्कतों को नजरअंदाज करने की शिकायत कर रहे हैं। इस बीच भारतीय जनता पार्टी (बीजेपी) के सांसद विनय कटियार ने इसे अस्‍वीकार्य बताया है।

समाचार एजेंसी एएनआई के साथ बातचीत में बीजेपी सांसद विनय कटियार ने प्रियंका के देश में रहने पर ही सवाल खड़े कर दिए हैं। एएनआई के साथ अपनी बातचीत में सांसद विनय कटियार ने कहा, ”प्रियंका चोपड़ा जैसे लोग रोहिंग्या मुस्लिमों की हकीकत नहीं जानते हैं। रोहिंग्या मुस्लिमों को इस देश में रहने की इजाजत नहीं दी जा सकती है और जो उनसे हमदर्दी रखते हों, उन्हें भी इस देश में रहने की अनुमति नहीं दी जानी चाहिए।”

बता दें कि यूनिसेफ की सद्भावना दूत प्रियंका चोपड़ा ने 21 मई को बांग्लादेश के कॉक्स बाजार में रोहिंग्या शरणार्थियों से मुलाकात की और इस संकट को भयावह बताते हुए इससे प्रभावित बच्चों की मदद करने की अपील की। बॉलीवुड की 35 वर्षीय अभिनेत्री प्रियंका बांग्लादेश की यात्रा पर थीं। उन्होंने कहा कि रोहिंग्या शरणार्थियों के बच्चों को एक सुरक्षित भविष्य देने के लिए दुनिया को साथ आने की जरूरत है।

अभिनेत्री ने इंस्टाग्राम पर रोहिंग्या शरणार्थियों के बच्चों के साथ कई तस्वीरें पोस्ट करते हुए कहा, “2017 की दूसरी छमाही में दुनिया ने म्यामां (बर्मा) में जातीय जनसंहार देखा।

I’m in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh today for a field visit with UNICEF, to one of the largest refugee camps in the world. In the second half of 2017, the world saw horrific images of ethnic cleansing from the Rakhine State of Myanmar(Burma). This violence drove nearly 700,000 Rohingya across the border into Bangladesh – 60% are children! Many months later they are still highly vulnerable, living in overcrowded camps with no idea when or where they will ever belong…even worse, when they will get their next meal. AND…as they finally start to settle and feel a sense of safety, monsoon season looms…threatening to destroy all that they’ve built so far. This is an entire generation of children that have no future in sight. Through their smiles I could see the vacancy in their eyes. These children are at the forefront of this humanitarian crisis, and they desperately need our help. The world needs to care. We need to care. These kids are our future.

When Mansur Ali, 12 yrs old, first came to the Child Friendly Space (CFS) at the Balukhali camp, he was only drawing scenes of bloodshed and violence. Helicopters shooting at him and his friends playing soccer… or his village and home being on fire with burning bodies all around him.. Today, his drawings reflect a more hopeful story, one we would like all these children to have. Since the #Rohingya children have arrived in Cox’s Bazar, they have been living in overcrowded camps with no real place that to call their own. Imagine a space that lets you forget your troubles and be a child again… even if its only for just a few hours a day. For the Rohingya children, over 300,000, in the camps in Bangladesh this is the only space that allows them to be kids. These Child Friendly Spaces created by @unicef give kids access to art, music, dance, sport, and counselling etc. The space has often proved to be very therapeutic, helping these kids deal with the horrific situations they faced.. the @unicef aid workers work tirelessly to make sure these children find their spirit again. It doesn’t matter where a child is from or what his or her circumstances are… NO child deserves a life without hope for the future. The world needs to care. We need to care.

प्रियंका चोपड़ा ने आगे लिखा, ”इस हिंसा ने 700,000 रोहिंग्या मुस्लिमों को बांग्लादेश भागने पर मजबूर कर दिया, जिनमें से 60 फीसदी बच्चे हैं. इस घटना के कई महीने बाद भी वह सहमे हुए है और बेहद भीड़-भाड़ वाले शिविरों में रह रहे हैं और उन्हें यह भी नहीं पता कि उनका क्या होगा और वह हर दिन इस डर में जीते हैं कि अगली बार भोजन कब मिलेगा।” प्रियंका ने कहा है कि दुनिया को इन बच्चों पर ध्यान देने की जरूरत है।

This is little Shohida (8 months old), who stole my heart with her infectious smile. It’s a poignant reminder of the dichotomy of life…here she was getting all the help she needed, when just a few months before, her mother, Alada (who was only 19 years old at the time) walked for 15 days, while 6 months pregnant with her ,to get across the border. It shows us that there is hope left in this world. When you’re dealing with a mass exodus of thousands of people, who have been displaced from their homes and are desperate for refuge, the need for proper health and nutrition takes center stage…especially for women and children. On the various Unicef Field Visits I have taken, I am always surprised by the simple yet effective solutions that @unicef and their partners develop to deal with the most dire and pressing situations and issues. This is something I experienced again today during my visit to the Nutrition Centre at the Jamtoli camp in Cox’s Bazar. More than 60,000 babies have been born in the camps over the past 8 months, so this center is an essential resource for new mothers to learn about proper feeding and nutrition. It all begins with the MUAC, a process where the child’s middle upper arm is measured to ascertain their nutrition level. From there, aids create a program for the child and a nutrient rich, ready-to-eat peanut paste is portioned out for each child based on the severity of malnutrition. At the Center mother’s are also taught basic hygiene and good health practices when they are in their homes. The world needs to care. We need to care.

I was quite literally knocked off my feet…a spontaneous, unfiltered moment with these amazing kids, who I spent a couple of hours with laughing and learning. It was as if for those few hours we all forgot where we were, and let ourselves be kids again (me included). One of the last stops on my field visit was at a @unicef Learning Center in the Balukhali Camp. Here, children are given a basic education of math, English, and Burmese through a colorful and engaging curriculum of song, drama, role playing. The age of the children in this classroom ranges between 7-10 years old, and for many of these kids this is their first school experience. There are over 400,000 children at these camps, but currently only 1/3 have access to education because of the lack of space and teachers. Given everything these kids have been through, their was no shortage of excitement or hope when I asked the kids what they wanted to be when they grow up. Whether it be a journalist, doctor, school teacher, or in the military, receiving an education means they’re getting a chance to create the future they aspire for themselves. The children are also taught basic hygiene, which is very important in a camp such as this, because of wide spread diseases like cholera and watery diarrhoea. Basics, like how to properly wash your hands, has actually helped to significantly reduce illnesses, and what’s amazing is that these kids go home and teach their parents and siblings the good health practices they’ve learned. Its initiatives like this that are setting these kids up for a brighter future. As I sit amongst them, singing along, the lyrics have more meaning than ever… “deep in my heart, I still believe, we shall overcome one day! .” I know they will. For those who’ve asked how they can contribute, here’s the answer… help every child get an education by logging on to www.supportunicef.org #childrenuprooted @unicef @unicefbangladesh
