Bangladesh transfers second group of Rohingya refugees to remote island

Seven Bangladesh navy ships carrying 1,804 Rohingya refugees arrived Tuesday at an isolated island where they will be relocated despite concerns among human rights groups about their safety. They reached Bhashan Char island, 21 miles (34 kilometers) from the mainland, after a four-hour naval journey from the port city of Chittagong, government official Mohammed Khurshed Alam Khan said.

There's films of that place on youtube. It actually looks really nice. All freshly built buildings, tidy, well planned, much roomier than the camp, private bathrooms, the homes are just single room studios, but legit it looks like a nice little pre-planned community. The complaints are that it's prone to flooding... but so is the mainland?

I am so glad that they "might" find a safe place to live. I fail to understand why humans treat each other this way over such shallow issues. I'd even hazard to say that religeon itself is at fault. Religeon was created by humans (priests) to control the masses, and has very little to do with faith, and much more to do with money and power. Remember how Jesus hated the money lenders? What do you think that was all about?
