Diaspora

Diaspora

The word Diaspora refers to an isolated place where dislocated people are placed as refugees. Historically the Jewish confinement camps during World War-2 and the Israeli settlements were called the Diaspora. At present times the refugee camps and isolated communities are termed as Diaspora. People of Sudan displaced due to civil war have created Diasporas in neighboring African countries. The Syrian people fleeing from ISIS terrorists created Diaspora in Europe. The Arakan people of Myanmar fleeing from the murder and torture of tyrannical government created Diaspora in Bangladesh. The people of Diaspora have no civil rights, as no government considers them as their own citizen. These people are deprived from basic human rights too. They do not have security and are not hired to do any work. Their children suffer from lack of nutrition and education. People of Diaspora are distorted from their homeland; so they do not have any land to cultivate either. As a result they are often forced to engage in crime and prostitution. They have to live in an inhuman condition. The government of the host countries often isolated and segregate these people but they should accept them as citizen or at least give them political asylum and work permit. Then they will at least be able to earn their own living in an honest way. We hope the governments, U N and other organization will work together to resolve the problems faced by people of Diaspora to create a world of equality.
