Still seeking justice

THE NEWS

The Rohingya, an ethnic Muslim minority based in the Rakhine province of Myanmar, are still a long way off from achieving justice and rights as citizens of Myanmar. After the 2017 genocide, 90,000 Rohingyas fled to neighbouring Bangladesh where they have been housed in squalid camps with too few resources to sustain them, the parallel government set up in Myanmar by former legislators has asked the Rohingya to join the fight against the military junta which seized power in February this year after overthrowing the NLD government of Aung San Suu Kyi. The Rohingya have been told by the shadow government that they will be given citizenship, denied to them since 1982, if they join in the struggle and that the law will be altered to grant Myanmar citizenship to all persons born in the country regardless of ethnicity or other issues.

Give voice to the Rohingya

Bangkok Post editorial column
25 Sep 2020


The Rohingya saga has been prominent in some international headlines of late. In addition to the mass exodus, with nearly 300 Rohingya drifting to the shores of Indonesia's Aceh province after spending months at sea, another major cause for concern is the deprivation of voting rights of those Rohingya remaining in western Rakhine state as well as the one million refugees living in neighbouring Bangladesh.

The 1 million-plus Rohingya huddled in refugee camps around Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh continue to be a stain on the conscience of the international community, two years after the military of Myanmar started its “clearing operations” to remove them from their native homeland in northern Rakhine State.

Myanmar’s real intent now transparent


The Daily Star
July 27, 2019
Editorial 

The foreign minister is absolutely right when he says the repatriation of Rohingyas depends entirely on Myanmar. Mere expression of willingness by Myanmar to take back the refugees is not enough. Demonstrative actions must follow quickly on the part of Myanmar. Regrettably, with every passing day the prospect of the Rohingyas going back to their own country is becoming bleaker. With the expulsion of the majority of the Rohingyas two years ago, Myanmar has put its final touches to their plans to divest the entire eastern Rakhine of the minority Rohingyas. The destruction of Rohingya villages and the Myanmar army setting up bases in this area only show that Myanmar is not prepared for the repatriation which Bangladesh hopes would start before September.

In its editorial, the paper urges Asean to take into account the concerns of the stateless minority, instead of ploughing ahead with plans to repatriate refugees.

BANGKOK (THE NATION/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Repatriation of Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh to Myanmar's conflict-torn Rakhine state will be on the table when Asean leaders meet later this month in Bangkok.

Rohingya plight

International The News
April 8, 2019

The fate of the Burmese Rohingya is being settled in front of our very eyes. As with many other populations that have faced ethnic genocide, such as the Rwandans and the Kosovar, the world does not care about the Rohingya. Not only is a return home filled with the same dangers that had forced the entire Rohingya population to get up and leave, they are not welcome in their new homes either. In Myanmar this week, another twenty Rohingya were killed after an attack by a military helicopter.

Round One to Suu Kyi

The Statemen
Editorial | New Delhi |

Comment on whether her agenda will attain fruition must await the evolution of developments not the least because the military still retains the power to veto constitutional change.

In parallel to the intriguing silence over the tragedy of the Rohingyas, there has emerged a silver lining in Myanmar over Aung San Suu Kyi’s assertion to set up a committee to craft a revised Constitution, to replace the one choreographed by the dominant military. Comment on whether her agenda will attain fruition must await the evolution of developments not the least because the military still retains the power to veto constitutional change.

The Rohingya crisis needs a local solution

Published: 15th Jan 2019,


Myanmar's democratization process may help the suffering nation to save itself from turmoil and inhumane crises, and build a stronger and more secure country.


As of now, more than 700,000 Rohingya women, men and children have fled from Myanmar's northern Rakhine State to neighboring Bangladesh since Aug. 25, 2017, when Myanmar security forces began a widespread attack on the Rohingya people.
