    Taking into accounts of all the crimes committed against
    Rohingya and the Muslim population of Burma and based on the United Nation’s
    Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide Article
    II,the crimes against humanity in Myanmar have risen to the level of genocide.
    Therefore, the Myanmar Muslim Genocide Awareness Convention (MMGAC) has
    declared the following resolution on protection and prevention of genocide
    against Rohingya and the Muslim population in Myanmar.
    1. MMGAC, in the strongest term, condemns the violence against
    the Muslim population of Myanmar that has entered the stages of genocide. We
    demand the Government of Myanmar to protect the Rohingya and the Myanmar Muslim
    to the fullest extent and bring the rule of law to the land that it governs.
    2. The Government of Myanmar must bring the perpetrators of the
    crimes targeting the Rohingya and the Muslim population of Myanmar to justice.
    3. The Government of Myanmar must provide full security to NGOs,
    INGOs, Muslim community and its religious leaders, and the National League for
    Democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.
    4. The Government of Myanmar must give the international team of
    investigators complete access to all the areas in Myanmar that are affected by
    the violence.
    5. The Government of Myanmar must return the land and properties
    of the displaced people, and must allow the restoration and rebuilding of their
    properties and places of worship immediately. The Government of Myanmar must
    permanently lift the closure of the Muslim places of worship in Rakhine state
    and all around Myanmar and allow the Rohingya people to have funeral services
    according to their religious customs and practice decent burial service at
    cemeteries.
    6. The Government of Myanmar must reinstate Rohingya as the
    original ethnic race of Myanmar along with their bona-fide citizenship of
    Myanmar. The Government of Myanmar must also give full equality and rights to
    all the Muslims of Myanmar in their citizenship as the other citizens of
    Myanmar.
    7. The Government of Myanmar must outlaw the 969 terror network
    and must take actions to stop their terrorist activities in Myanmar and in
    Southeast Asia region.
    8. We appeal the Government of the United States and the
    European Union to designate 969 group in Myanmar as a terrorist network, and
    impose sanctions on individuals associated with 969 terror network.
    9. We appeal the United States Congress to conduct a hearing on
    ethnic cleansing and violence against Rohingya and Muslim population in
    Myanmar.
    10. We strongly urge the international community to fully
    cooperate with the legal experts in launching an investigation to the genocide
    committed by the officials in the Government of Myanmar in association with the
    extremist Buddhist elements, to pave the way to proceed to the International
    Criminal Court.
