Rizal appeals SSARC Leaders

Bhutanusa,com April. 17, Bhutanese human rights activist and senior leader  Mr.Tek Nath Rizal has sent a letter  appealing  SAARC leaders and the observers of the summit  to take immediate initiations for the repatriation of Bhutanese  from the refugee camps in Nepal.
Addressed to the SAARC Chairman and Prime minister of Bangladesh, Madam Sheikh Hasina Begum,  Rizal’s letter has brought to the surface reality  the issue of protracted refugee crisis which none of the SAARC nations seem to have discussed seriously  towards resolving it.
He has reiterated the fading reality of gross human rights violation in Bhutan that forced some 100,00 genuine Bhutanese of Nepalese minority out of the country in the early 90s.  At times when Bhutan is  lending its deaf ear towards finding the durable solution to refugee problem, Rizal has written this letter requesting rest of the SAARC member nations to pressurize Bhutan in matter of taking its citizens back in dignity and honor as soon as possible.
The letter has also been sent to observers of the summit — People’s Republic of China, Japan, Korea, United States of America, Islamic Republic of Iran, Mauritius, Australia, Myanmar and the European Union.
The 16th round of  summit is  scheduled to take place in  the country capital, Thimphu from 28 to 29 April, 2010, which Bhutan  is hosting for the first time after a quarter century of the  evolution of SAARC. for viewing the complete letter CLICK HERE
