Israeli Muslims protest Myanmar 'atrocities' against Rohingya

Naya Jahan

Attacks by Rohingya militants on Myanmar security forces in Rakhine on August 25 sparked harsh military reprisals and an exodus across the border to southeast Bangladesh.

Earlier Monday, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein urged the Myanmar government to end the "brutal security operation" in Muslim-populated areas.

Even as the Rohingya migrant crisis is being termed as an example of "ethnic cleansing" and the global community is increasingly building consensus to help the migrants, experts said that the United Nations could not stop India from deporting Rohingya migrants living in India.

Mr Zeid however made clear that the response by Myanmar's troops was "clearly disproportionate".

Myanmar's abuses against Rohingya Muslims amount to a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing", a senior United Nations human rights officials said on Monday.

Almost 74,000 Rohingyas fled into Bangladesh between October 2016 and February 2017 when attacks on a border post in northern Rakhine triggered a military crackdown.

Over 310,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since August 25, according to the UN.

MYANMAR'S military has been accused of planting land mines in the path of Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in Rakhine state.

Bangladesh wants India's support to handle Rohingya crisis
Over 300,000 Rohingya have now fled into Bangladesh in recent weeks, straining the camps along the border. Bangladesh's rights chief also condemned the Myanmar government over "genocide" of Rohingya Muslims .

United Nations rights investigators have been barred from entering the country, formerly Burma, from where the United Nations says 270,000 people have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh in the last three weeks.

Bangladesh is already host to hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who have fled previous outbreaks of violence in Rakhine.

An exhausted Rohingya refugee woman touches the shore after crossing the Bangladesh-Myanmar border by boat through the Bay of Bengal, in Shah Porir Dwip, Bangladesh September 11, 2017.

Rohingyas are not recognised by Myanmar as its citizens and are called Bengali by them and Leaders of countries with majority Muslim populations including Malaysia, Indonesia and Bangladesh have led efforts to increase pressure on the Myanmar government.

Meanwhile, progressive activist group Ganajagaran Mancha has called upon Bangladeshis to boycott Myanmar goods "because these products have blood stains of Rohingyas".

Militants in Myanmar's Rakhine state are declaring a temporary ceasefire from yesterday after more than two weeks of violence in the western state.

'Myanmar has created the problem and they will have to solve it, ' she said, adding: 'We want peaceful relations with our neighbours'.

Only two-thirds of Burma's 52 million people are ethnic Burmese, and nearly all the other groups have rebelled from time to time because they have no autonomy.
