“I will honor BA-LLB, I want to study law so that I can know my rights and tell them about the rights of people … I have to be a human rights activist so that I can fight for my rights when I return to my country.”
If Tasmeeda, 22, said this is full of hope. Tasima is the first girl in the 40 thousand refugees from Rohingya living in India and will go to college. The form has been completed under the quota of international students at the Islamic Centennial University.
In Rohingya Basti that settled along the Yamuna River flowing in Delhi, Tamseda lives with a mother, father and brother in a house made of tomatoes and plastic. She became the only sister of her six brothers an inspiration for Rohingya girls in Tasmeida India.
In our view, Myanmar repeatedly calls on our country, Myanmar, which does not consider these Rohingyans as their citizens.
The battle to get to college was not easy for Tasmeeda. Myanmar left at the age of six to come to Bangladesh, but when the situation worsened, a large number of Rohingya Muslims came to Bangladesh. Due to the deterioration of the situation, the family sought refuge in India in 2012.
“Our ancestors and our ancient generations are a civilization but they did not learn because of their lack of rights and did not think that we would come what would happen to a generation, now we are stumbling over the average, we are from this world, but not from any country,” says Tsamida, who turns to two states and tells her story.
“I was fond of becoming a doctor since childhood, when I came to India, I applied for admission to the 10th grade, but I did not have the foundation here … I did not find admission to the schools and then filled the art form of the open campus.
“I see the news of Burma every day and I do not know how many people are killed like us, let’s burn, so I thought I should do the law and become a human rights activist.”
New state, new language and insistence on studies
The college reflects a joyful survey of his voice, but as soon as he remembers his past and where all the sadness turns out.
Is the face of all those who have any country. Tsmida is one of the most visited communities to be persecuted in the new generation of Rohingya society in the world. Apart from refugees, they have no identity. No country.
But Tsmida are fighting for their identity and existence.
She says: ” In 2005, he was 6 years old. It was my father’s job. They bring stuff and sell it in Burma (Myanmar). One day the police went to our house away and woke up my father. When we arrived I picked up many people and saw a police station to meet him. Police take money from Rohingya and leave. ”
“Two months later they (the police) came and went with my father. When my father came, he said we would not be here. I was in third grade, when I returned to Bangladesh with his family. ‘
” When we arrived in Bangladesh in 2005 we did not have a refugee card. Everything was working well, there must be Bengali language in schools so I enrolled in the Bengali school learned, then. ”
“Baba used to pay, everything was going well, and then in 2012, the Rohingya people became increasingly violent in Myanmar, many of the Rohingya migrated from Bangladesh to Myanmar, and even here the refugees were investigated. No cards “.
“When things got worse, some people who knew some of the papa were living in a shelter in India, and after talking to them, we came to India and got the UN refugee card.”
“I came to Delhi, I learned Hindi and English for two years from 2013 to 2015. After that I decided to continue my studies … I tried so much that I had to study science but I did not have the Aadhar card, I took the tenth test through the open campus.
I took political science in the 11th-12th. In June of this year, the house was waiting for my result. When I passed, I was happy because I would now study law. Even two years ago, I did not even know what the law was, and when it came to it, it could make our lives better.
Now there is no money to pay fees
Now high design intentions. The brightness of doing something different in their eyes is visible. This happiness makes worrying about the cartoons confusing.
“I filled out the application in the candid student class, we can not give her annual fees, I have to give $ 3,600 a year, where do we get a lot of money?
Tasmeeda said that the online fund is being raised to them and so far only one rupee rupees 20 thousand rupees able to get it. I hope our family will help us.
Meanwhile, a girl from Tata’s house, built in the vicinity of Tasimida in the Rohingya language, says: “Give your school a uniform for sewing.”
We knew that the girl had joined in the twelfth and she would wear the costume of Tasidaa.
Tasmeeda responds in the light of the Rohingya language with a smile – it was washed away in the evening. Look at two faces full of expectations and move towards my car.
