URGENT PRESS STATEMENT
10 APRIL 2014
Dear Chief Editors,
RE: STOP THE VIOLENCE AND RESPECT THE HUMANITARIAN OPERATIONS.
Myanmar Ethnic Rohingya Human Rights Organization Malaysia (MERHROM) strongly condemns the attack on the International aid and UNHCR operations by the Buddhist extremist in the Arakan State on the 26 and 27 March 2014. The incident clearly shows that the Buddhist extremists are not in fear of anyone including the Myanmar government itself.
The failure of the Myanmar government to control the violence doest not mean the government is not capable to control the situation but the government purposely doing so as part of the ethnic cleansing policy for the Rohingya in Myanmar.
It is unlogical to see the International aid and UNHCR operations were destroyed by the extremist Buddhist and the Myanmar government is not doing anything at that perticular time to stop the mass destruction and protecting the safety of the UN staffs and International aid workers which represent a big numbers.
The reality is the Myanmar government wants the UN staffs and the International aid workers leave the Arakan State as soon as possibble so that no eyes and ears will be witnessing the ethnic cleansing of the ethnic Rohingya in Arakan State. The Myanmar government is successful when 170 UN staffs and International aid workers left the country.
The reality is the Myanmar government purposely delay their action so that the UN staffs and the International aid workers feels that they are no longer safe in Arakan State and therefore they have to leave the bloody Arakan State immediately.
The return of the UN staffs and the International aid workers to their own countries make the situation worst as there will be nobody to monitor the crueality of the Myanmar government towards ethnic Rohingya. We are very worried what will happen to the Rohingya next. We do not know what the government plan on Rohingya. Currently the Myanmar government is forcing the Rohingya to admit themselves as Bengali. Those who refused will be prosecuted.
The situation back home is already very bad with the control and blocks towards ethnic Rohingya from the Myanmar government. Ethnic Rohingya outside or inside the temporary camps facing severe shortage of food, water, medication and other basic needs especially for babies and children. With the destruction of the UNHCR warehouse, the situation becoming worst as there will be more shortage of food, water and medicine. This will speedy the process of ethnic cleansing of Rohingya without direct killing from the Myanmar government.
Though the Myanmar government promised to provide more affective safety measures for the UN staffs and the International aid workers, that is only to show that they are serious to evercome the violence created by themselves. While the government protects the safety of the International aid workers, the safety of Rohingya are neglected at large.
We, therefore urge the UN Security Council to send the Peace Keping Mission to the Arakan State to monitor the human rights violations towards ethnic Rohingya and to avoid future mass killings on the innocent human beings.
We urge the powerful such as the United States of America, Britain and the European Government to act more affectively with the Myanmar government to stop the Genocide towards innocent Rohingya.
The failure of the United Nations and the Powerful countries to act effectively will result in worst humanity crisis involving ethnic Rohingya in Myanmar.
It is proven that the Myanmar government is not capable to resolve the Conflict in Arakan State. So, lets the United Nation and the powerful countries resolve it.
