In recent violence, Myanmar government committed mass crimes against humanity and did not respect rule of law. The Myanmar police raped women and young girls killed innocent men, women and children, brutally arrested large number of young, burned houses, destroyed schools and religious buildings of Rohingya population and prevent humanitarian groups access to Arakan. These inhumane acts committed by the Myanmar government caused large number of Rohingya flee their own country.
Some Islamic countries organized demonstrations to support their Rohingya brothers and showing the unity of Islamic nation. Subsequently, Myanmar government invited ASEAN to discuss the Rohingya issue and formed its own special investigation committee chosen by the Myanmar government itself to calm the situation and the Islamic nation. Meanwhile, the government banned journalists, human right groups and investigators access to Arakan (violence zone) to independently verify the allegations.
Myanmar government released reports that there is not enough evidence for the allegations of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya, and repeatedly rejected the widespread claims of rape, killing, burning houses and brutally arrests etc. On the other side, international human rights group’s reports claim that the genocide is being committed against Rohingya and the government is trying to cover up the truth.
Therefore, We in Global Rohingya Center urge ASEAN, UN, NGOs and international community to exert pressure on Myanmar government to stop these inhumane acts and to form independent investigation committee to verify the violations in Arakan. In addition, we strongly urge the OIC to discuss this step in the next Foreign Minister Session on 19th January 2017 in Kuala Lumpur to form an independent investigation committee to verify the abuse as first step, and exert pressure on Myanmar to allow journalist and humanitarian aid access the Rohingya.
