UN Intervention Is Only Viable Solution In Rohingya Situation – OpEd


For more than 6 weeks the innocent and peaceful-living Rohingyas have been made systematic targets of wholesale destruction, killing, raping and looting and arson attacks. The Myanmar military and security forces have killed more than 500 people, raped hundreds of women, burned down over 2,500 houses, destroyed mosques and religious schools, and perpetrated other inhuman acts.

While the persecution against Rohingya has been callous, persistent and recurring again and again for many decades — causing refugee problem and boat people crisis that pose regional instability and threat to international peace security — the Myanmar Government has manifestly failed to protect them, and Nobel Peace Prize Winner State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi is personally complicit and officially guilty in making Rohingyas’ plight worse.

As outlined in Articles 6 and 7 of the Rome Statute, well documented reports and videos confirm that genocide and crimes against humanity (including ethnic cleansing) have been committed against Rohingyas by the Myanmar Government.

Due to ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity, the Rohingyas are fleeing to Bangladesh for a temporary shelter to save their lives. They strongly desire to return to their ancestral homeland of Arakan as soon as possible and live a life in peaceful-coexistence with other ethnic groups, as responsible citizens of Myanmar, rather than to live in humiliation as refugees in alien lands.

But it is frustrating that United Nations, powerful countries and Myanmar neighbors, have taken no concrete step to response to the serious humanitarian needs of the helpless Rohingyas and to stop the ongoing genocide against them.

The Rohingya are hated, rejected, persecuted, annihilated and killed, and are treated as non-nationals. They do not enjoy any legal rights under Myanmar law and so do not have any redress in Myanmar. Therefore, the international Community should intervene in the matter. Particularly the UN intervention, on the grounds of humanitarianism with the specific purpose of preventing or alleviating widespread suffering or death of ethnic Rohingya with full security, is the only viable option left over to protect and save over a million of innocent lives. It seems implausible that the Rohingya would have any other redress except via the UN intervention.

We, therefore, urge upon the UN and international community for urgent intervention in the case of well documented genocide against the Myanmar’s Muslim Rohingya ethnic minority to protect and save the lives of more than one million of innocent people. We also urge for an impartial international investigation into the crimes against Rohingyas, and for urgent humanitarian aids to the needy.

    THERE IS MUCH MISUSE of the word ‘GENOCIDE’ these days.
    The Muslim media world and Rohingya right groups put out outrageously false, fraudulent, and manipulative media with the intent to demonize and vilify the Buddhists of Rakhine State, the Buddhists of Burma overall, and even the Buddhist religion.
    And surprisingly and tragically many Western activists and ‘Rohingya’ supporters believe it all!!!

    World meida and some orgazations are falsely accusing the Buddhist Rakhine people of ‘genocide’ against the Bengali Muslims (‘Rohingya’) after violence erupted there, in June 2012, resulting in about 200-250 deaths of both Buddhists and Muslims.
    That is not even close to being a situation that can use the term ‘Genocide’.
    The only true genocide in Burma was the 1942 Maungdaw Genocide – where Bengali Muslims (the term ‘Rohingya’ was unknown then) armed by the British to fight the Japanese in WWII did not fight the Japanese,
    but instead, turned the weapons on the dominant, indigenous Buddhist Culture, killing 30,000 Buddhists in Maungdaw township alone, burned over 400 Buddhist villages, and sent 100,000 Buddhists fleeing for their lives
    These are attempts by so-called Rohingya to cover their exaggerated and manipulative accusations against the Rakhine Buddhists in western Burma, with the inflammatory charge of: ‘genocide against the Rohingya Muslims’.
    In reality, the Rakhine Buddhist people, their culture, and their Buddhism are the ones facing a future genocide, by an ideology that has been genocidal since it started, and has committed genocides up to the border of Rakhine State in western Burma / Myanmar.

    Bengali (Rohingyas) Muslims do not respect the law of the country and insult Burmese culture.
    They also demand independent islamic state in the country .
    Bangladesh is responsible for Bengali ( Rohingyas) issues. Now they brand themselves as Bengali(Rohingya) terrorists.

    I agree that UN intervention is the only solution for Rohingya people. Rape against Rohingya women is 100 times higher now and killing innocent Rohingya children who has been put into the fire alive. This is untolerable. So we urge UN to take action this time not only by saying deeply concern.

    Yes we all support Rohingyas as they are most persecuted peoples on earth. Burma govt is killing systematically the Rohingyas, they are innocent so this is a crime against humanity and must be stopped now and also need proper impartial investigation and all culprits/criminals must be punished .
