Urge the British Government to recognise the persecution of the Rohingya as a genocide

Islamic Human Rights Commission
8 April 2022



Summary
 

The United States has officially recognised the persecution of the Rohingya as a genocide.

IHRC requests campaigners to write to the UK foreign minister Liz Truss, demanding that the UK formally recognises the Rohingya genocide too.

Background
 
The United States has officially recognised the persecution of the Rohingya as a genocide. The US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken said at a holocaust memorial event last month:

“Today marks the eighth, because I’ve determined that members of the Burmese military committed genocide and crimes against humanity against Rohingya,”


In 2018 a UN fact finding mission released a report calling for call for the investigation and prosecution of Myanmar’s Commander-in-Chief, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, and his top military leaders for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

LETTERS: We condemn the heinous murder of six people in a madrasah in an attack at a Rohingya camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, last Friday.

We abhor the sudden killing sprees in the camps as the authorities could have detected that there were signs of violent groups operating inside.

LETTERS: The Burmese Rohingya Organisation UK (BROUK) welcomes new sanctions announced by the EU and the UK on June 21st, targeting more financial interests of the Myanmar military as well as individuals with links to the military dictatorship.

It is of outmost importance that the international community keeps the pressure on the Myanmar military.

Rohingya, as genocide survivors, stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Myanmar protesting the illegal military regime, and the international community must do all they can to support Myanmar's struggle for true federal democracy.

LETTER | CIJ deeply concerned Star article will promote anti-Rohingya xenophobia

16 Jun 2021,

LETTER | The Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ) refers to an article published in The Star on 16 June 2021 titled Residents voice out their thoughts on Rohingya living among them.

We are highly concerned that the article in question articulates xenophobic and racist rhetoric against Rohingya refugees, and perpetuates harmful stereotypes that could lead to hatred, discrimination, and violence against a marginalised and vulnerable community.

West pushing PH to interfere in Myanmar affairs

THE MANILA TIMES
Letter to the Editor
April 26, 2021


In reply to Ruben Torres’ “Workers vs the military in Myanmar” (The Manila Times, April 23, 2021) we must be wary of some pundits parroting the US push for the Philippines to take a stronger stance against the Myanmar February coup (that unfortunately has since seen over 700 protesters dead) in the guise of protecting “democracy” and “human rights.” President Duterte is preventing exactly this rupture from happening in the Philippines, and we should not allow the Western pressures to wean us from our Asean values of noninterference that has kept our region peaceful.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr., who has seen firsthand the hypocrisy of the West, has said, “[W]ith Burma (today’s Myanmar), we work with the powers around Burma to see if we can convince the great powers there. Forget the United States! We talk to China, we talk to India, we say, ‘Can we go back to the status quo?’” adding that the Department of Foreign Affairs “will never listen to the West on this issue.”

LETTER: Southeast Asian leaders must unite to push the Myanmar junta to end horrific abuses against ordinary people and ensure it does not recognise the military as the country's legitimate rulers.

Asean is holding a Special Summit on Myanmar in Jakarta, today, to discuss the crisis brought about by the Tatmadaw's (military) coup in February. Junta leader and Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, who stands credibly accused of being one of the chief architects of the genocide against the Rohingya, is expected to attend the meeting.

LETTER: The continued mass killing of civilians by the Myanmar security forces requires firm and quick action by the international community.

On March 14, at least 60 civilians were killed by security forces and the death tolls continue rising on March 15 too.

Martial law was declared in Hlaing Tharyar, Shwe Pyithar, South Dagon, North Dagon, Dagon Harbour and North Okkalapa Townships and violence against protesters continued in other districts in Yangon, many of them lower-income areas. At the same time the military continues to frequently block internet access in order to hide its crimes and prevent protesters from organizing.

A Letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President of the Senate

THE WHITE HOUSE
FEBRUARY 11, 2021 
February 10, 2021

Dear Madam Speaker: (Dear Madam President:)

Pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), I hereby report that I have issued an Executive Order (the “order”) declaring a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by the situation in Burma. The order responds to the February 1, 2021, coup in Burma by targeting the military and its leaders, their business interests, and their close family members. The order holds to account those responsible for unjustly arresting and detaining government leaders, politicians, human rights defenders, journalists, and religious leaders; rejecting the will of the people of Burma as expressed in elections held in November 2020; and undermining the country’s democratic transition and the rule of law.

Strip Suu Kyi of Nobel peace prize

  December 21, 2019

LETTERS: IT’S time for the Nobel Foundation, which awarded Aung San Suu Kyi with the Nobel Peace Prize Award in 1991, to strip her of the award due to her failure to speak up against the mistreatment of the Rohingya.

She does not deserve to represent anything which symbolises human rights, democracy and peace due to her inaction on the issue.

Letter From America: The peculiar case of Japan vis-à-vis the Rohingya tragedy

Asain Tribune
Sun, 2019-10-27
By Habib Siddiqui 


Recently Myanmar’s de facto leader Suu Kyi met the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo.

"With regard to the alleged human rights violations in Rakhine State, it is indispensable that the Myanmar government and military take appropriate measures promptly," Abe was quoted by the Japanese Foreign Ministry as telling Suu Kyi in their meeting.

There is nothing ‘alleged’ any more about Myanmar’s genocidal crimes and intent against the Rohingya people. But mindful of Myanmar’s ugly face-saving position trying to evade any responsibility for its horrendous crimes and its willful abhorrence for the ‘R’ (Rohingya) term, Abe was understandably diplomatic in his choice of words when hosting Suu Kyi. But how long can his government continue to please a murderous, genocidal criminal regime?
