Special OIC 57-Member State Meeting on Emergency Situation in Northern Arakan/Rakhine State in Myanmar

Arakan Rohingya Union (ARU) presented two serious issues at the meeting: Crimes against humanity committed by the Myanmar armed forces (combined army, paramilitary BGP, and local police) and the emergency humanitarian situation in Northern Arakan.

ARU provided the details of the atrocities committed by the Myanmar armed forces against Rohingya civilian population. Indiscriminate killing of Rohingya civilian population, summary execution, individual and gang rape, arbitrary arrests, atrocities, and inhumane treatment of Rohingya in the detention camps, taking serious toll on Rohingya people.

Humanitarian crisis resulting from torching of over 2,000 Rohingya homes by the Myanmar armed forces, displacement of over 30,000 Rohingya in Northern Arakan and some crossing into Bangladesh for safety, severe shortage of food and life sustaining materials due to blockade of relief supply routes to affected areas by Myanmar Government, beating and arrests of local Rohingya trying to deliver food supplies, looting of Rohingya homes by Rakhine Natala settlers, and preventing Rohingya farmers from harvesting their grain crops.

There is no sign of any change in Myanmar Government’s unrelenting hostile policy against Rohingya people – Myanmar authorities are poised to transform the current government attacks on Rohingya people to communal riot by arming the local Rakhine Natala settlers and forming militia groups.

Stepping up misinformation campaign, claiming that the Rohingya families torched their own homes in order to blame the Myanmar armed forces is truly unconscionable. The type of lies by the government of a nation – grotesque will be understatement!

It is high time that the international community stands up and save an ethnic minority population in Myanmar whose very existence is under threat. The Governments of Malaysia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and several other countries have spoken out, and the world community of nations must follow the suit.
