Pak's Senate condemns killing of Rohingyas in Myanmar

Pak's Senate condemns killing of Rohingyas in Myanmar”

The violence and exodus began on August 25 when Rohingya insurgents attacked Myanmar police and paramilitary posts in what they said was an effort to protect their ethnic minority from persecution by security forces in the majority Buddhist country.

The security operation targeting Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar "seems a textbook example of ethnic cleansing", the United Nations human rights chief Zeid Raad Al Hussein has said, urging the country to end the "cruel military operation" in its Rakhine state.

"In such an environment, the government has invited the Red Cross to assist them", Singhal said.

They also note that this maneuver represents another clear gesture of Washington's "Pivot to Asia" policy aimed at containing China and, in the process, turning a blind eye to blatant human rights violations and global law.

It regularly floods during June-September monsoons and, when seas are calm, pirates roam the nearby waters to kidnap fishermen for ransom.

The House strongly condemned these crimes and killings tantamount to genocide against a peaceful community who are being persecuted on the grounds of race and religion, the Radio Pakistan reported.

Bangladesh, which already hosted around 400,000 Rohingya refugees, has faced a fresh influx of refugees since the security operation was launched.

Thousands of Rohingya refugees are still stranded on the Myanmar side of the River Naf, which separates the two countries, with the biggest gathering south of the town of Maungdaw, monitors and sources in the area told Reuters.

An injured Rohingya child Nur Sadika, 5, receives treatment after crossing over from Myanmar into Bangladesh. Myanmar says its security forces are carrying out clearance operations to defend against the ARSA, which the government has declared a terrorist organisation.

Senior leaders of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states have stressed the importance of taking swift action to put an immediate end to the ongoing brutal violence against the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

In the letter addressed to Guterres on January 6, Zarif demanded worldwide action to stop rights violations against the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, saying the plight of the Rohingya has caused global concern.

A United Nations report in February said the military crackdown on the Rohingya had led to gang rape, the killing of hundreds of civilians and the forced displacement of people. "I think such circumstances Buddha would definitely help those poor Muslims".

The latest outbreak of violence is the worst since then, with many calling on de-facto Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi to intervene.

He added that Myanmar's government must address the long-standing grievances and the miserable situation of its Muslim community, observe their rights in an effective manner and recognize them as equal citizens while protecting them in the face of violence and discrimination.
