I do not agree with
the views of international media and their various news articles, for
the last few months, on the conflicts between Rakhine Buddhists and
minority Rohingya Muslims. It is true that Rohingyas are majority in
Maungdaw and Buthidaung while they are not more than 10% in Mrauk Oo
, Minbya, Kyauk Phyu, Myae Bon and Pauk Taw. As such the claim by
certain media groups that the Rohingyas that has been oppressed for
many decades could attack the overwhelming majority Rakhines who have
full support of state

apparatus, is totally absurd and is very
unfortunate for the suffering Rohingyas. One should ask himself and
use commonsense before publishing such destructive news
articles.


More than 5000  Rakhine extremist & Buddhists
Monk killed more than 300 Rohingyas in Mrauk Oo,Minbya and Kyauk
Phyu.


Many Rohingya Organizations around the world
are demanding UN intervention to provide UN security forces because
they are helpless and do not possess any mean to defend themselves
from this well-coordinated plan of genocide launched against them.
But the Bhuddist Rakhine and Myanmar government do not agree to any
international intervention. They will not even allow international
humanitarian organizations because they are afraid of the face of
real culprits will be exposed to the worlds society. This clearly
shows who is under attack and who are attacking. Buddhist monks in
Myanmar declared the sympathizers of Rohingyas would be considered as
“national traitors,” according to a report by a humanitarian
group.


Can someone imagine how Buddhist monks are
supporting the plan of exterminating whole Rohingya ethnic community
from Arakan?  If national security forces do not support Rakhine
Community how is it possible for them to do so? Surprisingly, 
there is no  single picture or video which shows Rakhine
Buddhist died or their temple was burned while there are thousands of
videos and pictures to substantiate their claims of Rohingyas that
they have been raped, killed, looted and houses, properties and
mosques are being burned down by Rakhine Extremist.


The president has been very clear that the
Arakan issue should not be seen as a religious matter but if anyone
is trying to establish it as a religious issue it’s definitely the
monks,” if he does not addresses the issue as religious why he
allows all Myanmar Monks to demonstrate against the Islam. There is
no doubt that Thein Sein government has involved complicity in this
heinous crime against Rohingyas as he is the one only president of a
country in this modern days who openly called for the segregation of
two communities that have lived side by side for centuries. The RNDP
and the president Thein Sein are the most active players of this
crime of ethnic cleansing. International community must raise their
voices against them without further delay. Otherwise the world will
witness the worst genocide of the history in Asia.


In an attempt to calm the situation, Myanmar
President Thein Sein announced for a state of emergency in several
areas and said the confrontations have nothing to do with religious
differences but he fully involves in cleansing the Rohingyas and he
is still going forward on with his plan that Rohingyas should be kept
in refugee camp until resettlement to a third country. It seems that
this is a master plan to cleanse Rohingya Arakan, eventually from the
whole country.


Few days ago, riot ensued in Bangladesh. It
was also pre-planned conspiracy jointly launched by Bangladesh and
Myanmar governments. Prime minister of Bangladesh promised that her
government would give compensation to the lost properties in the
Bangladesh during the riot while Myanmar Government embarked on mass
arbitrary arrest of Rohingyas.


A media reported as: ‘Last week 
clashes once again highlight the plight of the Rohingya as a minority
that has been discriminated against for a very long time. The
systematic persecution of this group has been ell organized and its
brutality has reached all facets of life. This group had been
targeted decades ago with a systematic policy of elimination”.


It must be stopped. Sending extra troops and
fortifying security in the Rakhine region is not enough to stop the
violence. Without addressing the root cause of the current situation,
the problem will continue and so will be the bloodshed’.


Rakhine extremist & Buddhists Monk are
burned Rohingya Muslims houses and killed their women and children’s.


There was an agreement between Organization
for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and Myanmar government to open liaison
offices in Myanmar to provide the humanitarian aids for the victims
of violence regardless of race and religion but the monks and
Buddhists backed by the government protested against the OIC for
opening the office in Myanmar. The Buddhists from Rakhine state are
blocking the aids for the Rohingya since the Turkish government
delegation visited the Refugee camps.


As the situation becomes worse day by day,
we would like to request UN, USA, EU, and OIC to advocate for the
most oppressed Rohingyas of Myanmar. The world community should give
pressure on the Myanmar government to stop the ongoing violence
against Rohingya immediately, and restore their citizenship and
ethnic rights, and to urgently send an UN enquiry team for the crime
against humanity to Arakan State.


I would like to appeal international
Community for immediate humanitarian assistance for the displaced
Rohingyas who urgently need humanitarian aids, medical supplies and
other basic necessities.
