Stop ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims

  • Stop ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims

What is even more worrying is that the plight of the Rohingya will follow the same farcical and inhuman path that so many Syrians have suffered recently: that is, both Russian Federation and China might once again use their veto power to protect the government of Myanmar from censure and condemnation at the UN Security Council.

She has been sharply criticised around the world for her inaction.

Various countries, including the United States, have called for protection of civilians, and Bangladesh has urged safe zones so refugees can return home.

Refugees from Myanmar this week described walking through the jungles for days to reach the border and cross into Bangladesh, where they have built flimsy structures with bamboo and plastic sheeting.

Hungry Rohingya are running towards every food truck that arrives in the camps and already stretched aid agencies are now bracing for a new increase in numbers.

Others are not convinced and say her only outburst on the issue took sides, so clearly she has lost all credibility. "We do need to solve this problem at the source". Penny Green, a professor of law at Queen Mary University, London, concluded after a 12-month long investigation in the Rakhine State that since October 9, 2016, "the Rohingya are facing a terrifying new phase in the genocide: Mass killings, rapes, village clearings and the razing of whole communities, committed with impunity by the Myanmar military and security forces".

There have been tensions and frictions for years and like many minorities the Rohingya have been persecuted as an ethnic minority. Many Buddhists hate Rohingya and label them "Bengali" illegal immigrants. "But much more is needed and we are fast running out of stock", Margo Baars, who facilitates the Inter Sector Coordination Group, convened by the IOM said in a press release.

"They are in a desperate, absolutely desperate humanitarian state, without enough to eat".

Myanmar will set up three camps to dispense aid in Rohingya-majority areas of the worst hit part of Rakhine state, state-backed media reported on Saturday. But it would seem the plan is unlikely to be accepted there.

An aid worker with an global agency in Bangladesh reports: "What we're seeing is that many Rohingya people are sick".

"If safety can not even be found in area capitals, then no place may be safe", said Phil Robertson, the group's deputy Asia director.

The crisis, if it continues to worsen, might not only ruin the country's economy - investors around the world once had high hopes for Myanmar - but could also undermine ties among ASEAN member states. It was not clear who was responsible.

More so as Modi could give political comfort to the Aung San Suu Kyi government on the Rohingya issue over which she is being personally castigated internationally.

Washington lawmakers who once enthusiastically supported Aung San Suu Kyi's rise to power in Myanmar have shifted this week to criticism of her silence in the face of a bloody military crackdown on ethnic minorities, the latest sign that the nation's fragile democratic project is on tenuous footing. Some experts say more than one million Rohingya living in Rakhine were ripe for exploitation by foreign jihadists.

Murphy called for implementation of recommendations of a commission led by former United Nations chief Kofi Annan set up to find solutions for the ethnically and religiously divided Rakhine.

"Congress should suspend any advancement in military relations and make clear that there can not be further progress while abuses continue", said Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., who has been active on Myanmar issues. "It needs to be addressed".

"The present government should not do anything, act in a manner or allow the ministers to say something which actually destroys that image of India as a country which is compassionate, tolerant, accommodating and has historically also given a refuge to victims of violence and torture", he added.

Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak complained Friday of the burden his country bears in caring for many Rohingya. "Malaysia has always been upholding the sanctity of life", he said.

Thailand has also said it is preparing to receive people fleeing Myanmar, while Singapore said it was ready to help the humanitarian effort.
