Priyanka Chopra in Cox's Bazaar

Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra was the victim of internet trolls on Tuesday after she posted photos with Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh on Instagram. The actor who is the global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights through her post had urged her followers to care for the refugees, as she is currently on a field visit in Dhaka’s Cox’s Bazaar, which is said to be one of the biggest refugee camps in the world.

While Priyanka spoke about the 2017 Rohingya crisis and how it has changed the lives of the people involved drastically, she was trolled by users across the internet. She also went on to say that the monsoon season is approaching, as they are just settling in and it could be a huge problem for them. The actress even shared a video have to travel by foot to enter Bangladesh, making their lives even more difficult. However, a Twitter user told her to visit the camps of Kashmiri Pandits in Mumbai who are in our country rather than worrying about people in another country. The user even went on to call her a “double-standard person” and “bollytard”.

The trolling did not end there as one user called her a useful idiot working for an elite-nexus who turn a blind eye to Syria and Gaza where worst killings are happening since 2014. The trolling got worse they even made fun of her asking if she had gone to keep a check on the training of child terrorists in the country but Priyanka Chopra chose to remain silent and did not respond to any of the users. 


When Mansur Ali, 12 yrs old, first came to the Child Friendly Space (CFS) at the Balukhali camp, he was only drawing scenes of bloodshed and violence. Helicopters shooting at him and his friends playing soccer... or his village and home being on fire with burning bodies all around him.. Today, his drawings reflect a more hopeful story, one we would like all these children to have. Since the #Rohingya children have arrived in Cox’s Bazar, they have been living in overcrowded camps with no real place that to call their own. Imagine a space that lets you forget your troubles and be a child again... even if its only for just a few hours a day. For the Rohingya children, over 300,000, in the camps in Bangladesh this is the only space that allows them to be kids. These Child Friendly Spaces created by @unicef give kids access to art, music, dance, sport, and counselling etc. The space has often proved to be very therapeutic, helping these kids deal with the horrific situations they faced.. the @unicef aid workers work tirelessly to make sure these children find their spirit again. It doesn’t matter where a child is from or what his or her circumstances are... NO child deserves a life without hope for the future. The world needs to care. We need to care. Please lend your support at #childrenuprooted @unicef @unicefbangladesh
