    The refugee crisis in the middle East countries

    The middle East region is very prosperous due to rich natural resources in shape of petroleum and gas and the obvious affluence is seen at many place. Unfortunately, the region is always had wars and fights between the rival groups and many places even the crude oil and gas production was severely suffered affecting the economy of those countries. The region comprises of the countries like Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the Syrian Arab Republic, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. Now the recent civil war in Syria has forced millions of refugees to leave the country and even some people of the adjoining countries had started to move to some better locations. This has created a big problem for the nearby countries as on human grounds their Govt had to accept some of the refugees in their respective land even though it was a great inconvenience for the existing populations. Refugees are always a source of embarrassment for the local people as they are most of the times culturally and religiously different and could pose a threat in the future political system of the host country. Turkey has been affected much as it has accepted more than 3 million refugees so far in its premises. In past also many times such problems arose when wars and fights took place in that area. What in your opinion is the solution to this perpetual refugee problem in the region?

    The refuge crisis in middle east has been deepening and the outrage has been bloody and sometimes even the innocents are killed in the rage of domination by one another group. There is no unity between the Muslim countries and thus the weakness has been exploited to the hilt. What is the use of natural resources and God gift to these countries which is not utilized for growth and development but to eliminate other countries which are weak and sulking. The very concept of bossing over other nations has to be controlled by the UN which is silent on the ongoing atrocities in middle east. UN has the peace keeping force, and has the ability to stop those nations which are taking retaliatory steps on enemy nations and thus the living has become risky for the poor and daily wage earners and trying their best to be refugees.

    The refugee problem is similar to a population invasion for a country, in which people bring tears instead of weapons. Today, the entire world, including India, is facing a refugee crisis. How complex, terrible, and dangerous the refugee problem is can be gauged. When the problem is large, macabre, and dangerous, its diagnosis, methods of resolution should not be small but should be serious. Should not be searched, but should be searched for in longevity. There is definitely a need to take a humanitarian view on the refugee problem. The United Nations has also given constitutional rights to the people.

    Several countries are disturbed due to internal conflicts or external aggression; and middle east has been facing this problem for decades.
    According to UNHCR, a record 79.5 million were displaced as of the end of 2019. 45.7 million are displaced within their own countries and the rest have sought refuge elsewhere.
    The number of people displaced due to conflict and persecution is the highest it has ever been, while the climate emergency is also having a catastrophic impact on displacement. The vast majority of people forced to flee their homes are doing so in protracted situations of violence that the international community has been unable to address this issue.
    More than two thirds of all refugees worldwide come from just five countries: Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia. But Syrian refugees are the biggest sufferers at the moment. They have taken shelter in other countries. Sadly, most of the countries are not willing to help them let alone accommodate them on their own land. They put one or the other pretext to shirk from responsibility on human grounds. I appreciate those countries which have welcomed them and are providing them all help they need to survive.
    Several NGOs are working in the field to help these refugees. They are trying to take following steps:
    Collecting global funding for refugee protection and basic needs, with states, in particular wealthy countries, providing adequate funding for refugee emergencies and paying their fair share.
    Governments around the world should enact legislation upholding refugee rights and enabling refugees to access services and employment.
    States should commit to resettle larger numbers of refugees.
    Combatting xenophobia wherever it occurs and raising global awareness of the legal obligations of states to uphold the rights of refugees.
    Involve faith-based actors at local, national and international level in the joint planning and delivery of protection and assistance for refugees and support to host communities.

    It is estimated that there are about 60 million people who were displaced from their country around the world. From this, about 40% are from Syria and Palestine. This growth in the refugee population in the Arab region is creating fears in host countries. The host countries have no plan of action also to address this crisis. The displacement is increasing. SO many host countries are thinking of returning these refugees to their countries.
    Keeping security concerns in mind, countries are trying to limit refugee flows. All borders are placed under strict control or closed altogether.
    The natives of the host countries are also feeling humiliated due to this high rate of inflow and the local administration is also very much distributed as they have no guidelines from them regarding the methodology of handling this issue.

    The figures of refugees shared by Dr Rao is alarming and if that is true the UN peace mission should involve themselves and supply food and necessities to refugees on war footing.

    Middle East region was always in that dilemma of wars, fights, and aftermaths in form of refugee problem. The innocent women and children are staying in camps and tents waiting for the nearby countries to give them permission. The countries are not ready to allow them fearing that all those refugees will be a problem for them in future as the history very well illustrates. So, this is a very deep rooted problem and the whole world is suffering because of these conflicts in the middle East.
