The silence of the world over the slow burning genocide of the Muslims in Myanmar is very surprising. Every now and then we read reports of the Rohingya Muslims — fleeing persecution — arriving in neighboring countries by boats. Is the world silent because the Rohingyas do not matter and amount to nothing in this capitalist world? Even the United Nations has so far done nothing to check the situation. Paying lip service won’t work anymore as the situation has reached such a point where a UN intervention becomes mandatory.
But I feel that the cries of the poor Rohingyas are falling on deaf ears and nobody will try to rescue them from Buddhist terrorists. Even the media in the Muslim world appears silent in highlighting the plight of these Arakanese Muslims. The world must act before it is too late.
