Rohingya Muslim genocide – A Slap to humanity


With heavy heart and tears in my eyes ,today I cannot stop myself from writing about the worst genocide that is happening in the 21st Century . In the World of Internet and Social media where majority of us enjoy the freedom of speech ,we are seeing this happening and we are unable to do anything about it .

We all know what is happening in Rohingya but the locked upsetting graphic image prevent us to learn more and we keep scrolling down our newsfeed ,forgetting the sad news we just read .For us the images of suffering Rohingya may be disturbing graphic images but for Rohingya ,it is their worst terror ,the worst breach of human rights .

A just-released UN report based on the testimonies of Rohingya who have reached refugee camps in Bangladesh details mass gang rape, killings, brutal beatings, the torching of homes and people and disappearances in what the UN says “very likely” amounts to crimes against humanity.

The report describes evidence gathered during interviews with more than 200 Rohingya in the camps as a “calculated policy of terror” by Myanmar’s security forces under the guise of a military lockdown of Muslim villages.It states that for decades almost one million Rohingya in Rakhine have suffered systemic discrimination and policies of exclusion and marginalisation.UN investigators gathered the evidence in the camps after Myanmar’s government refused them unfettered access to the worst-affected areas of Rakhine.

They obtained images and videos of bullet and knife wounds, burns, and other serious injuries from people they said were deeply traumatised.Victims told how hundreds of Rohingya houses, schools, markets, shops and mosques were burned by police, the army and sometimes civilian mobs. They described the destruction of food and food sources, including paddy fields, and the confiscation of livestock.”Testimonies were collected of several cases where the army or Rakhine villagers locked an entire family, including elderly and disabled people, inside a house and set it on fire, killing them all,” the report said.The report said the violence raises serious concerns that Myanmar forces are engaged in “ethnic cleansing” to force Rohingya from Rakhine, where they have lived for generations.

The report quotes one survivor as saying “now is the worst it has ever been … we have heard from our grandparents that there were bad things happening in the past, but never like this”.

Facebook Silences Rohingya Reports of Ethnic Cleansing

The social network says it’s committed to helping the world ‘share their stories.’ But when people from Burma’s oppressed minority post, their stories have a habit of disappearing. Rohingya activists—in Burma and in Western countries—tell The Daily Beast that Facebook has been removing their posts documenting the ethnic cleansing of Rohingya people in Burma (also known as Myanmar). They said their accounts are frequently suspended or taken down. The Rohingya people are a Muslim ethnic minority group in Burma. They face extraordinary persecution and violence from the Burmese military; military personnel torch villages, murder refugees, and force hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes. Human rights watchdogs say the persecution has intensified in recent months, and a top UN official described a renewed offensive by the Burmese military as “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh.
