Myanmar leader condemns human rights violations in speech on Rohingya

Myanmar leader condemns human rights violations in speech on Rohingya”

Earlier, Buddhist protesters tried to block another ICRC shipment for Rohingya Muslims in the violence-hit Rakhine state in Myanmar.

Rohingyas are denied citizenship in the Buddhist-majority Myanmar and regarded as illegal immigrants, despite claiming roots that date back centuries.

There were more than one million Rohingyas in Myanmar before the current crisis, though almost half have fled since the deadly attacks on military posts by The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) militants on August 25.

“I want to tell the global organisations whether the Rohingyas are registered under the United Nations Human Rights Commission or not; they are illegal immigrants in India, ” Rijiju had said.

He said there have been no clashes since September 5 in Rakhine, where the military has been accused of burning scores of villages to the ground sending terrified Rohingya villagers fleeing. "The petitioners submit that this proposed deportation is contrary to the Constitutional protections of Article 14, Article 21 and Article 51 (c) of the Constitution of India, which provides equal rights and liberty to every "person" and is not confined to citizens of the country as enunciated in Article 19 of Constitution", the petition says, adding that deporting these children would be in contradiction of the principle of "non-refoulement", which has been widely recognized as a principle of Customary International Law.

Britain responded by announcing the suspension of a military training program in Myanmar.

"Over and above the said serious security concern already in existence, more disturbing part is that there is an organised influx of illegal immigrants from Myanmar through agents and touts facilitating illegal immigrants Rohingyas into India ..."

The witness said he saw some injured people.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari also reacted to the ongoing violence in Myanmar in his speech before the UNGA, likening the brutal anti-Muslim campaign there to genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda.

"Unless the tragedy taking place in Myanmar is brought to a halt, humanity will have to live with the shame of another dark stain in its history", Erdogan said. Moreover, the influential chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Bob Corker, said Suu Kyi risked "destroying" her reputation as a force for positive change.

Telling the court that the presence of Rohingyas in India would be a drain on the resources of the country and would affect the rights of the people, the Centre on Monday pointed out that some of the Rohingyas had contacts with Pakistan-based terror outfits.

The UN rights agency also described the situation as "a textbook example of ethnic cleansing".

However, she did not address the United Nations accusations of ethnic cleansing by the military, which is in charge of security.

"We are prepared to start a refugee verification process for those who wish to return", Suu Kyi said.
