GENOCIDE

World caught sleeping over Burma

Itís nearly two months since the Muslimís massacre ignited in Arakan, the western province of Burma (Myanmar). It all began on 3rd June 2012 when 11 Muslims were killed by the extremist Buddhists with an alleged assistance of Burmese Army after bringing them down from a bus.


The Muslims of Burma are losing hopes for a better future as they do not see any sort of help, now, from the International community specifically from the Muslim Ummah who have done nothing other than the lip service.

The attitude of civilian and military leadership of Pakistan, Saudia Arabia and other Muslim States came as a shock as they showed signs of no interest and even no condemning statement.

UN human rights chief Navi Pillay has called for an independent investigation into the genocide.

Amnesty International, the human rights group, has accused both security forces and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists of carrying out attacks against Rohingyas.

The Rohingyas are regarded as foreigners by the ethnic majority. They are reportedly denied citizenship by the government because it considers them illegal settlers from neighbouring Bangladesh, the rights watchdog said.

Images coming out of Burma have been very distressing, with burnt and slashed bodies.
