Burma Times: 11 March 2015 Rohingya Global Campaign (RGC)
We, the undersigned organizations strongly condemn the brutal and inhuman behaviors of Burmese Government and its terrorist and ultra-nationalist allied who are pushing the country into the worst by ignoring fundamental rights of indigenous Rohingya of Arakan State and assaulting the world concerns through perpetrated crimes against humanity and street protests against due rights, peace and stability.
We denounce so-called 1982 citizenship law which is indeed a systematic and preplanned agenda of ethnic cleansing against native Rohingya as form of law. As being natives of the soil, Rohingyas do not need to cooperate any official procedure of the verification of their citizenship status under such discriminatory law.
As well, we intensely protest the dreadful attacks and inhuman treatments upon the Rohingyas by alleging them as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh, destroying all of their settlements and establishments and send them squalid condition into IDP camps which is absolutely seen at risk then asking international community to take them a third country.
The truth is that Arakan was an independent country and the part of Arakan, that is, Chittagong region was colonized by the India in 1666 AD and the other part has been colonizing by Burma since 1784 AD. Buddhists and Muslims were two major communities there who unitedly ruled the Arakan Kingdom for centuries with harmonies.
We denied the faultily claim of the government and ultra-nationalists groups regarding the entire Rohingya people of Arakan as they all are illegally migrated from Bangladesh or from Bengal before and after Burmese independence.
In recently published true history of Burma by SLORC, it states that after freshly freed Burma, Rohingya delegations expressed their territory not to include with Magh Rakine which resulted a Mayu Frontier District as per the norms of autonomous region for minority and that was a demand of the Rohingya people as well . But, later it was intentionally demolished by the then Dictator Ne Win and then it was attached with Rakhine State without the consent of the native people. Since then Rohingya become political victims of all sorts of racisms and discriminatory policies till make them stateless with a view to exterminate them from their ancestral homeland.
It is very clear that the Burmese constitution of 1947 and 1974 ensured due citizenship rights of the Rohingya which automatically allowed to vote and elect in parliamentary session but unfolded and unilaterally passed black law of 1982 citizenship act barred them from fundamental human rights
Since then, the Government authorities of Burma have been committing crimes against humanity through killing innocent lives of Rohingya and destroying their entire identities alike culture, tradition, history, heritages and etc.
In these regards, we would like to call all level of human societies of the world and world leaders particularly the UN, EU, OIC, ASEAN, SARRC, Arab League, USA, UK, France, Russia, China and etc. to bring and immediate end of the
plight of Rohingya with urgent interference to show effective responsibilities towards human security of the Rohingya.
We, hereby would like to demand: –
– To reinstall Mayu Frontier District or similar special administrative territory for Rohingya in Northern Arakan.
– To get back them of their National Identity Registration Cards (NIRC) as before.
– To give them rights of self-protection and self-determination.
– A Burmese constitutional grantee for their existence and equal rights with others without discrimination.
– To stop all radical ultra-nationalist Buddhist movement with ironfisted actions.
– To take action against those who involve in the killings of thousands of Rohingya, burning their homes and properties, faulty propaganda through media with the intension of stimulating anti-Muslims, anti-Islam anti-Rohingya activities.
– To close the unwanted departments and denounce anti- Rohingya organs as illegal.
– To the right of dignified repatriation to all Rohingya who fled the persecution or for other political means.
