Published: May 01


OTTAWA — A Senate motion will urge the Liberal government to meet Canada’s international treaty obligations by holding Myanmar accountable for its treatment of the Rohingya Muslim minority.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government is hypocritical, say some, for making regretful statements about historical events such as the Holocaust and the Rwandan genocide but failing to do more to stop what Parliament has unanimously acknowledged as an ongoing genocide.

When Rohingya refugees began fleeing into Bangladesh in 2016 and 2017, lawyer and activist Razia Sultana found herself on the frontline of a sexual violence epidemic.

The Myanmar military, in its scorched-earth campaign against the Muslim minority, laid waste to entire villages, carried out massacres and lined up women to be raped, according to U.N. investigators, who have called for the alleged crimes to be prosecuted as genocide. As the exodus swelled to more than 770,000, Razia Sultana got to work documenting the violence.
