Burma Times by Amir Bin Harun
It’s very hard to bring into realization and question whether Myanmar is in peace or not concerning our people. We can’t merely proclaim it as a peaceful country subjectively. We need clear live examples and evidences to prove the claim.
When we research the gist of Myanmar, it shows that there are lots of injustice, human right violations and racism and various other inhumane discriminations.
It has been since decades that the Myanmar government is killing innocent ‘Rohingya’ and yet have no legal solutions for these vulnerable Rohingya people and those responsible have never been brought to justice
Rohingya faced and still are under the genocide happening in Myanmar. They have been repeatedly appealing to the world communities including European Union countries (EU) to help end the ongoing genocide in Myanmar which had began many years earlier. But, the world has utterly and clearly failed to protect us from the human right violations within the country. There are particular organizations charities which are working for human rights but there is not yet a historical organization which has been helpful to the Rohingya victims, even United Nations couldn’t bring significant aid and progress in the current conditions.. When Myanmar has been persecuting the ill-fate Rohingya, there was no voice for them to rescue them from the apparently burning ongoing genocide and mass massacre. Being humans, we can’t simply sit back and watch silently where thousands of innocent people both young and old are dying whose lives are as precious like everyone else. Its empirical fact that the Rohingya people are not from another land or ethnicity. They were there for generations on this very ancestral land of our forefathers. Myanmar can’t easily play radically towards vulnerable Rohingya.
The Rohingya people were barred from November 8 2015’s historic election which was completely unjustified and callous by the Myanmar government against Rohingya. Although they were barred from the historic election, Rohingya were purely optimistic towards the National leagues for democracy (NLD) when it seemed that the country will turn democratic even though the (NLD) dignitaries are refusing to recognize the term Rohingya.
The sorrow of Rohingya people are beyond boundaries unimaginable. Now, it has come to the last phase for the international communities to reinforce intense and meaningful pressure on the government of Myanmar not to play their radical politics against Rohingya. We have been witnessing America working for every human right everywhere else in the world but staying politically silent on the pressing issues of Rohingya where the Rohingya have no way to live even in terms of basic needs.
It’s a strong request to US, France and UK to turn eyes and focus their attention on Myanmar and help Rohingya to end the genocide in their country. We can see these countries are mainly fighting elsewhere sternly making sure that the rights of all human beings are not being violated and treated equally without racism and discrimination.
We want human rights which are equal to every one of them regardless of what ethnicity we belong to and be granted the right to reside and grow as a Burmese citizen in Myanmar. We want to practice our faith and what we believe in. We want peace in our country. Myanmar is an ideal land for our Rohingya people and what we need is honest support from the leaders who can make a difference. Long live Rohingya
