Who will speak for Rohingyas?

The military junta in Myanmar has been courted by the West in its quest to encourage the democratization process in this bastion of tyranny. However, it is primordial that respect of human rights, especially the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya minority should remain high on the international agenda.

The Rohingyas are the most defenseless religious minority in the world. However, their fate draws very little attention from the international community. They live in an impoverished enclave between Myanmar and Bangladesh. Since Myanmar’s independence from the British in 1948, thousands of Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh to escape racial and religious prosecution by the Buddhist Rakhines and the Burmese military junta.

"There is a lot of latent prejudice, racism, whatever you want to call it, inside Burma towards this community and it's playing out right now. It's not over by any means. It's a tinderbox and it could blow up at any time."

- Brad Adams from Human Rights Watch

Burma: campaign groups call for citizenship law reform  09/07/2012

Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) joins 30 other Burma campaign groups in calling for Burma’s controversial 1982 Citizenship Law to be repealed and replaced with a new law that is compatible with Burma’s obligations under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Citizenship Law not compatible with the UDHR

A joint statement released today states: “The Citizenship Law introduced by General Ne Win in 1982 is not compatible with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or with Burma’s legal obligations under international treaties. It arbitrarily stripped many people in Burma of the right to citizenship.”

“The 1982 Citizenship Law should be repealed, and replaced with a new law founded on basic principles of human rights. The new law should honour equality and non-discrimination, and help create an inclusive and tolerant Burma.” Read more
