Mohibullah is the chairman of the Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights (ARSPH), one of the leading organisations giving voice to the Rohingya refugees. Following a crackdown by the Myanmar military, 730,000 Rohingya fled Rakhine state for Bangladesh in August 2017. The UN described the action as “textbook ethnic cleansing”. Efforts to repatriate the refugees have failed so far as firstly, returnees lack a sufficient guarantee of safety, and secondly, their villages have been systematically destroyed.
