The Mother of Humanity - Sheikh Hasina from Bangladesh


The Mother of Humanity - Sheikh Hasina from Bangladesh

Sheikh Hasina is the current Prime Minister of Bangladesh. She is also the first Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Sheikh Hasina was elected to office for a fifth term as Prime Minister of Bangladesh on 26 January 2014.

The Mother of Humanity - Sheikh Hasina

In September 2017, UK-based Channel 4 News first profiled Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as the 'Mother of Humanity after her heroic proposal to open the Bangladesh-Myanmar border to persecuted Rohingya fleeing Myanmar's Rakhine state. In this continuation, Sheikh Hasina, the daughter of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, has been known as the 'Mother of Humanity.

Leader of Sheikh Hasina

The leader of a highly densely populated developing country, Sheik Hasina, demonstrated a unique example of an altruistic gesture.

Sheikh Hasina is the current and first female leader of Bangladesh. She is also the current Prime Minister of Bangladesh. Sheikh Hasina was born in 1949 in the rural village of Moulvibazar in the Gazipur District of Bangladesh. She completed her secondary education at Dhaka Collegiate School and then went on to study law at the University of Dhaka. Sheikh Hasina began her political career in the early 1970s when she became the secretary of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP). In 1991, Sheikh Hasina was elected the leader of the BNP and she was elected Prime Minister of Bangladesh in 1996.

The Myanmar security forces, and local vigilantes have been persecuting the Rohingya people in the Rakhine state, resulting in the fleeing of over a million Rohingya people to Bangladesh. An estimated 738,805 Rohingya people arrived in Bangladesh within a few days on 25 August 2017 when the Myanmar military coordinated an operation, which the world came to term as a textbook example of ethnic cleansing.

58 percent of the latest Rohingya are children, 34338 women are pregnant, and 39841 are orphans


87,000 Rohingya people have fled to Bangladesh since October 2016 to escape human rights violations by the Myanmar security forces. An additional 300,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since 2005. There are now over 1,100,000 Rohingya refugees living in camps in Bangladesh.

The following text is a paraphrase of the original text. The most recent mass displacement of Rohingya people following the events of 25 August 2017 in the Rakhine State has been described as the fastest displacement crisis in the history of mankind. The government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, in coordination with international agencies, has been providing humanitarian assistance including shelter, food, healthcare, water, sanitation, etc. to the persecuted Rohingya people solely on the basis of humanitarian need. The Rohingya people will continue to receive shelter and other humanitarian assistance from Bangladesh as long as they remain displaced in the country and await return to their homes in the Rakhine State.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has stated that “if my government can arrange food for over one hundred sixty million people of Bangladesh, we would also be able to feed one million people more.

Medical support has been provided to 224,560 people through 866 health facilities The government of Bangladesh has allocated 6,200 acres of land for the construction of shelter-houses, sanitation, and other related services. 30 camps have been set up while 212,607 houses have been built in the camps for the forcibly displaced Rohingya people. as many as 845,914 Rohingya people now receive food and other relief support while 142,823 have so far received nutritional support 177,725. Medical support has been provided to 224,560 people through 866 health facilities.

The government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina believes that humanitarian responses would help the forcibly displaced Rohingya people only temporarily. A durable solution to the problem is a must for the sake of humanity. Bangladesh's government has engaged diplomatically with Myanmar to make sure that the Rohingya people are enabled to exercise their right to return to their own homeland.

Mother of Humanity Hasina by the 5-point proposal

She then took the matter to the UN at the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly in September 2017 for a permanent solution to the protracted Rohingya crisis. She presented a 5-point proposal:

1. Myanmar must unconditionally stop the violence and the practice of ethnic cleansing in the Rakhine State immediately and forever. 

2. Secretary General of the United Nations should immediately send a Fact-Finding Mission to Myanmar. 

3. All civilians irrespective of religion and ethnicity must be protected in Myanmar. For that "safe zones" could be created inside Myanmar under UN supervision. 

4. Ensure a sustainable return of all forcibly displaced Rohingyas in Bangladesh to their homes in Myanmar; and 

5. The recommendations of the Kofi Annan Commission Report must be implemented unconditionally as soon as possible.

Sheikh Hasina called for action on the Rohingya crisis at the 74th UNGA, saying she was disappointed that the issue was still unresolved.

Rohingya crisis the Hasina

As no concrete moves are visible on their repatriation, she once again raised the issue at the 76th UNGA and said the Rohingya crisis is in its fifth year now and yet not a single forcibly displaced Myanmar national could be repatriated to Myanmar.

Despite recent political developments in Myanmar, we expect the international community to find a durable solution to the crisis. Myanmar must create conditions that are conducive to the return of the refugees. We are ready to work with the international community on this priority.

Although the world may not be relentless in the repatriation of the 'world's most persecuted people', Sheikh Hasina knows by heart how it feels to be a refugee from one's own homeland. She experienced this in 1971 when ten million Bengali's had to flee to India, and then on a personal level when she had to take shelter in Germany after the assassination of her father, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Embassy of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina

Senegal graced the event. The structure of the text is simple, and it is easy to understand. The text tells us that the "Sheikh Hasina: the mother of humanity" edition of the Diplomat magazine was unveiled on 12 September 2019 in the Hague. The event was attended by ambassadors from various countries.

Publisher of the Diplomat Magazine, Dr. Mayelinne De Lara, and Bangladesh Ambassador to the Netherlands, Sheikh Mohammed Belal along with the participating Ambassadors introduced the edition to the audience.

Last row

While speaking at an event, the ambassador of Bangladesh thanked the Diplomat magazine for its cover story on the Hon'ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The cover story highlights how the world came to know Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as the 'mother of humanity' after her bold decision to open Bangladesh-Myanmar borders for the fleeing persecuted Rohingya people from Myanmar's Rakhine state and thereby saving thousands of lives. The ambassador also explained how the Bangladesh government has been extending all sorts of help to the Rohingya people.
