Yet, here is one more similar plight of a vulnerable Rohingya baby girl that has been acutely suffering from an unidentified fever since 10th April 2014. She is Supana Parveen, daughter of U Yunose and Daw Noor Aishah, living in the IDP camps of Thakkay Pyin (Sakki Fara) in Sittwe (Akyab) township, Arakan state.
There is no hospital or proper clinic there after the expulsion of International Aid Groups. And she can’t be admitted to Sittwe General Hospital either because of the fear that Rakhine doctors and nurses at the hospital will kill her instead of curing her illness. She is now in a volunteer clinic at the camps. Rohingyas in Arakan are indeed the victims of slow-burning genocide carried out by the government-sponsored Rakhine (Magh) extremists. The world, are you listening?
