University student Rohima Akter Khushi has been suspended from a private university in Cox’s Bazar solely due to her being Rohingya. She is one of the very few Rohingya young women who have braved all odds to pursue higher education. Denying her education based solely on her identity is an affront to the human rights commitment that Bangladesh has made under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Education is a universal right regardless of status.
Born and schooled in Bangladesh, Rohima Akter Khushi was in her second semester of studying law at the International University.
