Twelve international non-governmental organizations have recently written a letter to the Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations peacekeeping mission. Different types of propaganda and speculation are going to be noticed here. They said that the RAB of Bangladesh is violating various human rights. In their language, RAB of Bangladesh is engaged in various misdeeds, violating human rights. For this, they have requested the RAB of Bangladesh not to take them in peace keeping. They wrote the letter on November 7. It’s been two months since the UN received it.

The letter was sent two months ago, on November 8, 2021, and was released today (Thursday), according to Human Rights Watch. A letter to UN Under-Secretary-General Jean-Pierre Lacon called for all members of the RAB to be barred from peacekeeping operations.

According to the media reports, the letter was signed by Amnesty International, Asian Federation against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD), Asian Forum for Human Rights and Development (FORUM-ASIA), Asian Human Rights Commission, Asian Network for Free Elections (ANFREL), Capital Punishment Justice P
