Now I live in France.I am here to seek asylum.As I was afraid I failed to mention my main problem in my asylum case.Today I want to share it in short:
Basically it start from my childhood when I was 6-7 years old.A teacher who reside in my house used to sex with me.At that time I was quite unknown about that.Same thing happened with me by a local man in the same age.I thought it is normal.After when became age of 14-15 I was at Cox's Bazar one of my relative did same thing couple of time when I sleep at night.In the mean time when I went to visit one of my relative infact she is my aunt.In the night I sleep with his son.He did same thing to me.
Actually I could not remeber the year but I am sure at that time Cox's Bazar city corporation is going on and may be I was in class eight.It was friday.My father took me to hair dresser to cut my hair.After make payment my father left me there.In the half way of cutting my hair a man came there.Did some chat with hair dresser.Suddenly asked me to give a pen.I tried to give but he did not take.He told me to finish my hair cutting,then told me to went next room.After finish I went there to give pen.After enter into room he locked it and did sex with me.He thread me not to tell anyone,otherwise he will kill me.After that I was frighten about this issue.
Next one happen in my college life.Whole college was under ''Shibir''.I always opposed to them as did not like their activities.Due to some collusion with them one-day evening three people from their group took me in silent place near my hostel.They did sex with me against my opinion.I have to describe it as rape.After that with more many subject I became mentally frustrated and I tried to do suicide.But luckily I am still I alive.In the meantime I was introduced with a boy from Cox's Bazar named ''R''.Day by day we become closed with each other.We did manytime physical relation.Gradually I became very comfortable.One surprising matter in my life I did not feel attraction to women,after happen relation with ''R'' the feelings became more strong.However suddenly some people get known about our relation.And they spread it out.After that the tragedy happens to my life.In my village some Muslim priest declare me as enemy of Muslim.They did not allow me to participate in society even banned me to enter into mosque and decided to banned me from village.
After that many of our relative leave me,did not get any help from them.I could not explain how was my mental situation at that time.After all of that I tried to stay in my country.But day by day the situation become tough.As finally I have to leave my country to save my life.
Now I am in France but unfortunately I failed to mention my main problem in my asylum case.But now with help of someone or organisation I want to include it in my asylum case.Please can anyone help me?
I don't want to die.Please let me live in world with my right.
