Washington Imam: World silent on human tragedy occurring to Myanmar Muslims

The West has turned a blind eye to the plight of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar in an attempt to maintain its economic interests in the Asian country’s lucrative market.

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Myanmar’s President Thein Sein insists that Rohingya Muslims must be expelled from the country and sent to refugee camps run by the United Nations.

The country’s current government, run by military figures and accused of massive rights abuses, refuses to recognize nearly-one-million-strong Rohingya Muslims community, which the UN calls one of the world’s most prosecuted people. Read more

There's something heart-wrenching about watching grown-up men cry. Who can forget the image of a terrified Muslim tailor begging for his life with folded hands and tears in his eyes as a frenzied mob down in the street bayed for his blood in Modi’s Gujarat 10 years ago?

That iconic image of Qutbuddin Ansari — clicked by Reuters’ Arko Dutta, immortalizing the artist and his subject — has come to be known as the face of Gujarat pogrom. It captured the horror of the 2002 genocide like nothing else did. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this one certainly was. And more. Read more

Myanmar's broken promises

Despite reforms in Myanmar, the situation for many ethnic minorities has deteriorated in the past year.

Last Modified: 19 Jul 2012 12:21

"If Burma receives one kyat, you will also receive one kyat." (The kyat is the country's currency.)

During recent visits to some of Myanmar's many ethnic minority communities, I often encountered this historic assurance made by Bogyoke Aung San, hero of the anti-colonial independence movement and father of Aung San Suu Kyi, to representatives of these communities at the signing of the Panglong Agreement in 1947. Failure to fulfill its promise of equitable distribution of resources between Myanmar's Bamar core and ethnically diverse periphery lies at the heart of a violent cycle of conflict that has plagued Myanmar since Aung San's assassination, soon after Panglong was signed. The contours of this conflict continue to define Myanmar's politics, resulting in vast discrepancies in the impact of the current democratic transition. Read more

Submitted by admin7 on 17 July 2012 - 4:52pm

By TCN News,

New Delhi: Some Muslim and Buddhist organizations on Tuesday wrote to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh seeking his intervention to stop killings of Muslims in Myanmar. The central government was also urged to protect the rights of Burmese refugees who are living in pathetic conditions in New Delhi.

“There are continuous news reports of atrocities and killing of ethnic Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar which has caused a feeling of sadness amongst large sections of the Indian Muslim community. Many organizations have protested at various places across the country against this widespread killing by the Myanmar Military junta. Common peace loving citizens of India are also worried about news of large scale genocidal killings of the Rohingya Muslim community,” the groups said in the joint letter sent to PM and External Affairs Minister.

The coalition has issued a series of recommendations for both Myanmar and Bangladesh, which were delivered today to the two governments and their embassies in 28 countries. The coalition's full statement is as follows: See more

Western Burma in Conflict: Rights, Reconciliation, and the Rohingya

Posted: 07/16/2012 1:43 pm

Two months of horrific escalations of violence have engulfed western Burma's Rakhine State. While the conflict lurches between reproach and revenge, the media seems to be at a crossroads between better reportage and being forgotten by the drive of the news cycle. The violence threatens to extinguish the tentative embers of hope that have been kindled by the last year's incomplete reform process. Read more

Genocide Emergency:  Western Myanmar, Rakhine State: The Rohingya

The Rohingya are a Muslim ethnic minority living in northern Rakhine state in Western Myanmar.  They face religious and ethnic discrimination by Myanmar’s military regime, which refuses to recognize the Rohingya as Myanmar citizens.  The Rohingya people are not considered one of 135 legally recognized ethnic minority groups in Myanmar. Myanmar considers them illegal immigrants from Bangladesh, but they have lived in Myanmar for centuries, and Bangladesh will not accept them as its citizens. Read more
