Bangladesh has said  Bhashan Char island is completely safe and suitable for human habitation with all the amenities and there has been no forceful relocation.
 
"There is no question of the use of force, intimidation or the use of money to influence the decision of the participants," said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday mentioning different facilities in Bhashan Char like healthcare, drinking water, options for economic activities and cyclone shelters.

The island offers enough space for the free movement of the Rohingyas and Bangladesh Inland water transport corporation (BIWTC) has already introduced regular sea-truck service between Bhashan Char and Noakhali, it said.
