Rohingya children in Bangladesh face worsening malnutrition crisis: UNICEF

1396/8/13 | 04:28
The United Nations children's agency, UNICEF, says life-threatening malnutrition has spread perilously among Rohingya child refugees who have fled Myanmar and entered Bangladesh. The UNICEF said on Friday that preliminary data showed that a full 7.5 percent of the children crammed into one of the camps in Bangladeshi district of Cox's Bazar face the risk of dying from severe acute malnutrition. More than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims have so far fled the predominantly-Buddhist Myanmar to neighboring Bangladesh since August 25, when the crackdown ...

Rohingya’s genocide: Mere a lip service

1396/7/28 | 04:28
  Pakistan is usually nimble in responding to popular current issues, speaking right into the ears of those it wants to please. Congruously, its stance on the Rohingya genocide in Myanmar was to oppose Aung San Suu Kyi’s government.       The earlier atrocities committed by both sides cannot be forgotten, nor can the fact that members of other communities are here because of fear of persecution in their countries of origin.   A humanitarian approach should be taken under such circumstances. Furthermore, the introduction ...

Rohingya Muslims not native to Myanmar: Army chief

1396/7/21 | 04:28
  Myanmar's army chief has said during a meeting with the US ambassador to the country that Rohingya Muslims subjected to persecution by government forces in western Rakhine state were not native to Myanmar. During the meeting on Thursday, Min Aung Hlaing, who referred to Rohingya by the term "Bengali," said that British colonialists were responsible for the problem. Myanmar’s government brands the 1.1 million-strong Rohingya population as “illegal immigrants” from Bangladesh even as their roots in the country go back centuries. According ...

Why Saudi Arabia Is Not Vocal On the Issue of Rohingya Muslims

1396/7/14 | 04:28
  When Rohingya Muslims fled persecution and slaughter in Myanmar in past decades, tens of thousands found refuge in Saudi Arabia, home to Islam’s holiest sites. This time around, Muslim leaders from the Gulf to Pakistan have offered little more than condemnation and urgently needed humanitarian aid. The lack of a stronger response by Muslim-majority countries partly comes down to their lucrative business interests in Southeast Asia, experts say. Much of the Middle East is also buckling under its own refugee crisis sparked by years of ...

Bangladesh boat capsize: 23 bodies found so far, 60 feared dead

1396/7/8 | 04:28
  The bodies of 23 people have been retrieved from the water so far but the death toll is expected to surge to around 60.   More than 60 Rohingya refugees are feared dead after a boat carrying them from Myanmar capsized, leaving distraught relatives to hold burials on Friday in Bangladesh camps that the Red Cross says are tipping into a health crisis.   Half a million Rohingya have crushed into camps in Bangladesh in just over a month, fleeing a Myanmar army campaign and communal violence that the UN describes as “ethnic ...

Israel refuses to stop arms sales to Myanmar despite Rohingya massacre

1396/7/6 | 04:28
The Israeli regime will not put an end to its sale of ammunition to Myanmar in light of incontrovertible evidence and United Nations data that the Southeast Asian nation’s military has perpetrated various forms of atrocities, including systematic rape and expulsions, against Rohingya Muslims. English-language Haaretz daily newspaper reported that a group of human rights activists had filed a petition in the so-called High Court of Justice, demanding an end to the arms sales. Senior Israeli official Shosh Shmueli, in return, said the court ...

Tragic story of infant drowned as his family fleeing Myanmar Regime’s Genocide

1396/7/1 | 04:28
  Heartbreaking images circulated on Thursday showing a young Rohingya couple mourning death of their infant, as their boat capsized fleeing the Myanmar regime's genocide against minority Muslims.     One-month-old Abdul Masood died after the wooden boat delivering his family to Bangladesh overturned Thursday in the waist-deep water of the Bay of Bengal on Shah Porir Dwip island, close to shore.     Their boat was one of the dozens of boats carrying persecuted Rohingya Muslim refugees’ boats that were sank off ...

Rohingyas of Karachi struggle to deal with identity crisis

1396/6/26 | 04:28
Ali Akbar Shah Goth and 100-Quarters in Arakanabad are the biggest dwellings of Rohingya Muslims in Pakistan though few will admit they are originally from Myanmar.     Since they all first crossed over to Bangladesh, in different times, to reach Pakistan, they prefer to call themselves Bengalis.     Gathered with other community elders at a tea stall in the market area of Ali Akbar Shah Goth, Nur Ahmed said he along with other Bengalis had come to Karachi even before the separation of East Pakistan, as “this country ...

UNICEF says 240,000 Rohingya kids in dangerous situation

1396/6/25 | 04:28
UNICEF has warned that more than half the nearly 400,000 Rohingya refugees who fled from Myanmar are children in dire condition. About 240,000 children, of whom 36,000 are less than a year old and 92,000 are under five years old, are living in squalid conditions where they are vulnerable to the spread of disease, the UN children's agency said on Friday. There are also about 52,000 pregnant and lactating women among the refugees. According to latest estimates, about 391,000 Rohingya refugees have crossed into Bangladesh since violence erupted ...

Did China hold back Pakistan to take stand on Rohingya’s genocide?

1396/6/23 | 04:28
  International divisions emerged on Tuesday ahead of a UN Security Council meeting on a worsening refugee crisis in Myanmar, with China voicing support for a military crackdown that has been criticised by the US, slammed as “ethnic cleansing” and forced 370,000 Rohingya to flee the violence.     Beijing's intervention appears aimed at heading off any attempt to censure Myanmar at the council when it convenes on Wednesday.China was one of the few foreign friends of Myanmar's former junta.     Beijing has tightened ...

Ayatollah Khamenei urges action against Myanmar govt. over Rohingya Muslims

1396/6/22 | 04:28
  Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called on Islamic governments to exert political and economic pressure on Myanmar’s “cruel” government to make it stop a deadly crackdown on minority Rohingya Muslims in the Southeast Asian country. Speaking on Tuesday, Ayatollah Khamenei urged practical measures by Islamic governments to end the crisis in Myanmar. Myanmar’s government has laid a siege to a western state where the Rohingya are concentrated. There, horrific violence has been taking place against ...

Bangladesh offers land to shelter Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar

1396/6/21 | 04:28
  Bangladesh has agreed to free land for a new camp to shelter some of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims who have fled recent violence in Myanmar, an official said Monday.   The new camp will help relieve some pressure on existing settlements in the Bangladeshi border district of Cox's Bazar, where 313,000 have arrived since Aug. 25, according to the United Nations.   "The two refugees camps we are in are beyond overcrowded," said U.N. refugee agency spokeswoman Vivian Tan.   Other new arrivals were being ...

Hajj 2017 went well, but the Rohingya matter not a jot in Saudi Arabia

1396/6/19 | 04:28
  The House of Saud will, no doubt, be quite pleased with itself that the Hajj 2017 has concluded without any setbacks or hitches worth reporting.   In fact, it will pat itself on the back rather cynically that in addition to a smooth, incident-free pilgrimage, its enormous team of bureaucrats — including intelligence and security forces — ensured that the compartmentalisation of the Hajj as a purely spiritual-religious ritual did not stray onto “other” areas, the “other” being politics.     Saudi Arabia ...

Diplomatic protest: Why Pakistan doesn’t close Myanmar’s embassy?

1396/6/19 | 04:28
  Foreign Secretary Tahmina Janjua summoned Myanmar's ambassador U. Win Myint to the Foreign Office on Saturday to register Pakistan's "strong protest" at the ongoing violence against the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar's Rakhine State.     Janjua demanded that the Myanmar government takes "effective measures to prevent the recurrence of such violence" and ensures that the rights of the Rohingya population are upheld. The foreign secretary also emphasised that in order to reach a "durable settlement of the problem", the recommendations ...

Iran urges action on Rohingya genocide before 'it's too late'

1396/6/17 | 04:28
Iran’s foreign minister has chided the international community for remaining silent on the violence directed toward Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, calling for swift action to end the genocide. “The international community has no excuse to allow the genocide of Rohingya Muslims to continue in front of our eyes,” Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Thursday. He further demanded urgent action to address the plight of Rohingya Muslims, saying, “We must act now before it's too late.” Myanmar's security forces have been attacking the Rohingya ...

Israel sells arms to Myanmar despite Junta’s genocide against Muslims

1396/6/16 | 04:28
  Israeli regime continues to sell arms to Myanmar's junta despite reports that Buddhist country's crimes against minority Rohingya Muslims is amounting to genocide.     Thousands of persecuted Rohingyas were slaughtered and burnt alive and some 100,000 more were forced to flee their burning villages to neighboring Bangladesh, many with bullet wounds, after Myanmar’s army launched a bloody offensive on northern Rakhine state on 25 August under the pretext of fighting militants.     But none of this has led to ...

Petrol bomb thrown at Myanmar embassy in Indonesia

1396/6/13 | 04:28
A petrol bomb was thrown at Myanmar's embassy in the Indonesian capital Jakarta early Sunday, police said, as anger grew across the mainly Muslim archipelago about violence against the Rohingya in Myanmar. No one was injured in the incident, said Jakarta police spokesman Argo Yuwono. A patrolling police officer saw fire at the rear terrace on the second floor and immediately informed police who were guarding the embassy. "We are still trying to catch the perpetrator," Yuwono told AFP. Indonesians are becoming increasingly concerned at the ...

Turkish FM: Why are Muslim nations silent on Rohingya?

1396/6/12 | 04:28
Turkey’s foreign minister on Saturday decried other Muslim countries’ silence on the plight of the Rohingya Muslims. “There are a great many Muslim countries. Where are they? Why are they silent?” Mevlut Cavusoglu asked at an event marking the Muslim Eid-al Adha holiday in the Mediterranean province of Antalya. He said to date Turkey had delivered more than $70 million in humanitarian aid to the Rohingya Muslims, and that no country in the world was showing more concern for the Rohingya than Turkey. But, he added: “It’s not enough ...

1396/6/7 | 04:28

The uncovering of new angles of Buddhist atrocities against Myanmar Muslims

1396/5/4 | 04:28
After months of banning media coverage of Myanmar's bloody incidents against the Rohingya minority, a group of journalists were allowed to visit the victims and publish a handful of stories.   On Sunday morning, a group of Muslim women told reporters that a day ago the attackers have kidnapped a number of men, women and children, Reuters reported. “My son is not a terrorist. He was arrested on false charges while working on the farm.” said a woman. The recent round of violence in northern Myanmar began in October last year. A month ...

1396/2/31 | 04:28

Rohingya’s prosecution is genocide not xenophobia

1395/11/24 | 04:28
  The recent released report compiled by the UN reveals a shocking picture of the abuse and violence faced by the beleaguered Rohingya minority in Myanmar. The narrative in Myanmar is that the Rohingya are not ‘sons of the soil’ and are ‘illegal immigrants’ from Bangladesh. Even if this debatable proposition was accepted, would it justify the atrocities the Rohingya have been subjected to? The state of Myanmar, especially supposed human rights champion Aung San Suu Kyi, must investigate the claims highlighted by the report. ...

Rohingya’s ethnic cleansing: OIC’s is late awakening

1395/10/30 | 04:28
  The United Nations should intervene in Myanmar's Rakhine State to stop further escalation of violence against Rohingya Muslims and avoid another genocide like in Cambodia and Rwanda, said the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation's special envoy to Myanmar.     The conflict which has left at least 86 dead and an estimated 66,000 people fleeing into Bangladesh since it started on Oct. 9, 2016, is no longer an internal issue but of international concern, said Syed Hamid Albar, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Special Envoy to ...

1395/9/23 | 04:28
The UN has urged Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi to visit northern Rakhine state, where the army is accused of carrying out a brutal crackdown on the Muslim Rohingya minority.   The Nobel peace prize winner has faced growing international criticism for not stopping the military’s campaign, which has pushed more than 20,000 Rohingya over the border to Bangladesh, bringing tales of mass rape, murder and arson.   Suu Kyi has described the situation as “under control” and asked the international community to stop stoking ...

No end to ordeal: Myanmar’s barren democracy and plight of  Rohingya Muslim

1395/1/16 | 04:28
 On Thursday, Htin Kyan was sworn as Myanmar’s first civilian president. A trusted aide of Aung San Suu Kyi, he has urged patience for both Myanmar and the world. The country has thus taken a step towards ending 56 years of military rule. It took four months between the national elections in November and March for the newly elected parliament to come to a power-sharing agreement with the military junta. Already, instead of moving forward, the ruling National League for Democracy has begun to give anti-democratic signals. It has declared ...

Rohingya’s plight and toothless UN

SHAFAQNA PAKISTAN (Shia News Agency)-In the post-Second World War era, there are charters which ensure basic human rights for all of humanity, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Such rights are called rights, therefore ‘omnes’ (towards all), as the charters were ratified by the sovereign legislatures, which represent more than 80 per cent of humanity. The rights we are concerned with in Myanmar are Articles three, 14 and 15 of the UDHR, which are, respectively, ...

Electoral interests and plight of Rohingyas

1394/3/2 | 04:28
SHAFAQNA PAKISTAN (Shia News Agency)-The Rohingyas,  a distinct Muslim ethnic group who are effectively stateless - have been fleeing Myanmar for decades. But a combination of factors means many are now stranded in rickety boats off the coasts of Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia with dwindling supplies of food and water. Rohingya” is the self-identity of a predominantly Muslim ethnic minority group in Myanmar’s western Rakhine State.
