Bangladesh: Empathy (the lack thereof)

You may have heard of the plight of those Bangladeshi & Rohingya immigrants stranded at sea in the Bay of Bengal, fleeing from extreme poverty and persecution, Well, according to Bangladesh’s Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, they are “fortune seekers” and “mentally sick” and should be punished for tarnishing the image of their country and putting their lives in danger. “These people give all this money traffickers to go abroad and suffer when they can do it for free in one of the thousand squalid sweatshops right here in Bangladesh. Why die in foreign lands or drown at sea when they can perfectly accomplish the same results at home in one of the building fires or collapses that regularly occur at our substandard factories? They should be ashamed!”
