    Myanmar is inhumanly behaving towards the Rohingya Muslims

    The article by Mohamed Ibrahim Frankfurt

    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.

    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

    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 doesn’t
    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’s 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’.

    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.
