CIVIL society groups from around the world come together to celebrate World Refugee Day on June 20.
These groups celebrate International Refugee Day by issuing media statements or by tweeting.
Countries that signed the 1951 UN Refugee Convention also claim resettlement of refugees, but practically nothing happens.
For the past five years, only voices have been raised in favour of the refugees but nothing concrete has been done.
The situation on the ground is that no country is ready to resettle refugees or work for their welfare.
At present, civil society groups around the world and the countries that have signed the 1951 UN Refugee Convention prefer only Afghan and Ukrainian refugees, whose resettlement in other countries is in full swing.
It seems that there are only Ukrainian and Afghan refugees in this world who are stuck in a quagmire of problems.
Japan, along with the United States, Canada, Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand, is also resettling migrants from these two countries.
However, the resettlement rate of Rohingya, Iraqis, Uighurs, Palestinians, Syrians and Pakistanis in other countries is just 4%.
Now the practice of resettling refugees from these countries is declining and soon it will be almost over.
All the signatories to the convention are non-Muslims and have so far resettled millions of Muslim refugees.
Yet now these non-Muslim countries have apologised for giving importance to Muslim refugees for resettlement.
The files of Muslim refugee resettlement cases, which have been under process in the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services USCIS and USRAP for decades have become infested with termites.
People who receive refugee status die within the status of a refugee. On social media, the question is often raised by citizens of non-Muslim countries that if non-Muslim countries, which signed the convention, could shelter and resettle the Muslim refugees, then Muslim countries should also deal with this issue.
In most Muslim countries, Muslim refugees are held in prisons or immigration detention centres.
Can’t the rich Arab countries, Turkey, Brunei and Malaysia help Muslim refugees? Is this the responsibility of non-Muslim countries only?
These are questions about which no Muslim country has so far been able to answer or express its shame or regret.
If non-Muslim countries that signed the convention are resettling Muslim refugees then God has special mercy on such countries.
These countries seem to be more developed than Muslim countries around the world because of their social and humanitarian service.
My article is not against anyone’s religion or caste or country. I just want to say that if Muslim countries take care of the refugees, then the problem is 50% solved.
In the course of time, humanity has disappeared from the world. The wars in Ukraine and Afghanistan have made as much noise as the international media, civil society groups and the west.
