    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.
