Soaked and hungry Rohingya refugees seek shelter in Bangladesh

Soaked and hungry Rohingya refugees seek shelter in Bangladesh”

Rohingya Muslims are considered to be among the world's most persecuted people.

"The U.N. and INGOs have not been very welcome in Rakhine and.they are not able to operate and ensure the safety and security of their staff and volunteers", said Joy Singhal of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

"Rohingya Muslims follow the fatwas issued by Pakistan's Azhar Masood (leader of terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad) and sow the seeds of division by creating religious strife", the editorial alleged.

"This complete denial of reality is doing great damage to the global standing of a government which, until recently, benefited from huge good will", he said.

"Should the systematic and extensive violation of the basic human rights of the Rohingya Muslims be left unattended, it would encourage extremism and instigate violence even beyond the borders of Myanmar and become a destabilizing factor for the whole region", the Iranian minister pointed out.

At least 294,000 ethnic Rohingyas have fled across the border to Bangladesh since fighting broke out on August 25, according to a situation report from the Inter Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) in Bangladesh. According to a 2015 report by the International Human Rights Clinic at Yale Law School, Rohingyas were not included.

The violence has driven almost 300,000 Rohingya to flee Buddhist-majority Myanmar, with many of them packed into existing camps or huddled in makeshift settlements that have mushroomed along roadsides and in open fields across Cox's Bazar district on the border.

Muslims from 25 jamaths under the banner of Thoothukudi Integrated Muslim Federation staged a protest on the premises of Collectorate here on Monday against the killing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

Myanmar says its security forces are carrying out clearance operations to defend against the ARSA, which the government has declared a terrorist organisation.

India's PM condemned a series of coordinated attacks by Rohingya militants on Myanmar troops and police, late August, but did not comment on the subsequent violence against the Rohingya and their mass exodus.

Bangladesh's Ali accused Myanmar of running a "malicious propaganda" campaign to term the Rohingya as "illegal migrants from Bangladesh" and the fighters as "Bengali terrorists". The visit also saw the leaders of both countries discuss the Rohingya issue.

Many of them feel that they are by far safer in India than in Myanmar.

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein speaking in Sri Lanka. "I've never encountered a situation like this, where you do 204 interviews and every single person you speak with has a traumatic story, whether their house was burnt, they've been raped or a relative was killed or taken away". With the violence picking up almost 300,000 people have fled the country and are seeking refuge in another countries.

Through the resolution, the House urged the United Nations and the global community to exert strong diplomatic pressures on Myanmar to take back the Rohingyas, ensure their safe accommodation and give them citizenship rights. Children and women flocked to every stopping vehicle, begging.

Tensions between Buddhists and Muslims have simmered since scores were killed and tens of thousands displaced in communal clashes accompanying the onset of Myanmar's democratic transition in 2012 and 2013.
