The government has directed the marriage registrars not to administer any marriage between Bangladeshi nationals and Rohingyas.
The law ministry yesterday issued a notification to this effect asking the marriage registrars to administer marriages only after examining the national identity (NID) cards of both the bridegrooms and brides to be sure about their nationality.
According to the ministry, the trend of marrying the Rohingyas has increased among the Bangladeshis in Cox's Bazar, Bandarban, Rangamati and Chittagong districts, and some marriage registrars are involved in registering the marriages.
Tough action will be taken against those registrars, said the notification.
The ministry also ordered registrars of the districts to monitor the issue.
