Muhibbullah spoke at the United Nations Council in Geneva as well as the Ministerial meeting on religious Freedom in the United States in 2019 During his visit to the United States, he shared his experiences as a religious persecuted people with the US president(Donald Trump) and vice president.
It’s worth mentioning that Muhibbullah and his organisation worked to raise the demands of the Rohingya people in thr Rohingya camps and in the international areana in order to ensure the rights of the Rohingyas who were forcibly evicted from Myanmanr.
There was lack of of an acceptable Rohingya leader for the almost one million displaced Rohingyas.Muhibbullah had filled that gap for the last few years.
Muhibullah was a resident of Maungdaw Township in Rakhine State. He came to the Ukhia camp in Bangladesh after crossing the border with other Rohingyas to save his life when the Myanmar army launched a devastating operation in the area.
