    ‘Rohingyas still suffering persecution in Myanmar despite int’l court order’

    The Rohingya people are still suffering persecution in Myanmar despite international court order, says UK-based right body Amnesty International.

    “Despite the International Court’s order, nothing has changed for the estimated 600,000 Rohingyas who live in Rakhine State in dire conditions, including around 126,000 whom the authorities are holding indefinitely in camps,” said Amnesty International’s Southeast Asia Regional Director Nicholas Bequelin said.

    Nicholas came up with the remarks ahead of Saturday’s deadline for Myanmar to report on its compliance with the International Court of Justice’s order to take “provisional measures” to protect the county’s Rohingya minority, reports BSS quoting a press release.


    “They are still denied their rights to nationality, freedom of movement and access to services – including healthcare. They are also caught in an escalating armed conflict between the Myanmar military and the Arakan Army.

    “Internet blackouts have kept the Rohingyas and other minorities in Rakhine and Chin States deprived of potentially life-saving information, and impeded monitoring of the humanitarian situation on the ground,” he said.

    Nicholas said the reality remains that no meaningful steps to end atrocities – including the crime of apartheid – have been taken.

    “Until there is genuine accountability for those responsible for crimes under international law, there is little hope for improvement in the lives of the Rohingya and other ethnic minorities in Rakhine, Kachin and northern Shan States. These populations still suffer from widespread human rights violations at the hands of the Myanmar authorities,” the Amensty official said.

    He said the Amnesty International renews its call for the UN Security Council to urgently refer the situation in Myanmar to the International Criminal Court.

    Accused of genocide

    Last November, Gambia filed a case at the International Court of Justice accusing Myanmar of breaching its obligations under the Genocide Convention. The complaint included an urgent request for the court to order “provisional measures” to prevent all acts that may amount to or contribute to the crime of genocide against the Rohingyas and protect the community from further harm while the case is being adjudicated.

    Violence continues to escalate

    Since February, fighting between the Myanmar military and the Arakan Army, an ethnic Rakhine armed group, has escalated in Rakhine State and neighbouring Chin State, with reports of serious human rights violations and rising civilian casualties.

    A unilateral ceasefire adopted in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic does not apply to the areas where the Myanmar military is fighting the Arakan Army, which the Myanmar authorities deem to be a “terrorist organisation”, the press release said.

    "Peace and love to all and enmity to none" is the foreign policy of Bangladesh. As a result Rohingyas are suffering at the hands of Burmese Junta. The Junta does not expect any strong reaction from a weak and kowtowing BD.

    So, the best way now for BD is to accept Rohingya refugees and implement a "One child policy" among the original BD citizens. Within a generation the adverse effect of Rohingya influx will be neutralized if Bengalis produce less number of children.

    BD is unfortunately run by such a group of coward people that even the smallest of the Asian frog dare to kick its a*s. The other day, the Husband-wife policy maker stupid Abdul Momen was begging western countries to take Rohingya refugees because they have large land masses.

    What a joker he is!! No wonder, people like them always in the country, Robert Clive won with 2,700 troops against Bengal's 50,000 troops. What a ferocious people we are!!

    I wish General Moin would be running the country instead of a meek Hasina Bibi. Moin had forced the MM navy out of our part of BoB in 2008 where they were digging for oil/gas.

    Agreed.

    The ship has sailed on the Rohingyas.

    They ain't going back.

    Let the leadership of Bangladesh take note what happens when you assume everyone else is as docile as you are.

    It seems to me that we should negotiate with Arakan Army and ARSA (Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army) since their goals are one and the same, free Arakan from Bamar clutches. The latter is headed by one AtaUllah and funded by Saudi. We should see that they get their requisite support from Bangladesh - final goal should be balkanization of Myanmar and a free Arakan state which Rohingya and Rakhine citizens can claim for their own.

    This increasingly seems the solution, armed struggle to free Arakan of Bamar occupation.

    Shaitan was the first racist. Remember that all PDF bhais.

    We should not capitulate to Shaitan's suggestions.

    Stay steadfast in your Iman. All Muslims are equally precious to Allah.

    Mullahism is what all Muslim countries should avoid. No, Taliban and no ISIS, please!! They destroy social fabrics and harmony among the population by radicalizing and then polarizing the people.

    The only good thing about this govt is it did not pursue the Rohingya cause by encouraging the Topiwala and Darhiwala Mullahs to wage war in the border. However, helping Arakan Army and the likes is a different thing. I do not understand why BD is not following this line.

    An independent Arakan State is the only solution where all the Arakanese people, Buddhist and Muslim, will live side by side as they have been for centuries. Buddhists are majority people there, so, the AA should be extended military assistance.

    Because the father of the nation Sheikh Mujib ur Rehman once said "Friendship to all, Malice to none"...... Now we are bent at the right angle to receive the rewards for being docile, meek and friendly.

    If Myanmar even feared slightest retaliation from Bangladeshi side, they wont have proceeded with the ethnic cleansing of Rohingyas in a first place. Burmese are like what we call in Bengali, ''Shokter bhokto, noromer jom''. During 1980s and 1990s, we had upper hand in military at least against Myanmar and then leadership in Bangladesh was tough with Myanmar, that's why Burmese were forced to take back Rohingyas in those times. Since then, Myanmar have rapidly expanded their military strength, while we floundered. I remember, before the 2017 genocide and ethnic cleansing, Myanmar repeatedly tested our resolve to confront them by creating various border incidence. And each time, BD govt. showed very weak responses which emboldened the Burmese junta. They knew very well, they can shove any amount of Rohingyas into Bangladesh without any consequence. This is also the reason, why nobody, I repeat Nobody take Bangladesh seriously, Not China, USA, EU, Japan and even India. If China and Japan feared any type of Bangladeshi intervention in Rakhine, for say helping the rebel groups there, they would have pressurized Myanmar to solve the Rohingya problem fast to save their investment. But they feel no urgency to do that as anything like this is not happening. That's why everyone is just paying the lip service and we are reduced to begging sympathy from those powers. Absolutely pathetic situation.

    It is quite depressing and pathetic, yes.

    But 90% of the population is content watching Bollywood movies and living in bliss. If you want Bangladesh to move forward ban Facebook, tiktok, p0rn and Bollywood (basically p0rn with no nudity) for 5 years and see the difference in the people's mentality. The rising cases of sexual abuse can be directly linked to the lewdness touted on TV as the new normal, Indian TV; where all you have to do is just ask and she'll get down for an 'item song' and more.

    General population are not even allowed to be near a border conflict. It is the political leadership that is hanging on power with fake democracy and election that is unable to respond the crisis. Hasina is a coward and she does not want to see any military leader protrude his head above her in the process of fighting that ragtag MM military.

    Hasina is a feeble-minded woman surrounded by all ball-less men who lack knowledge of international diplomacy. The situation will remain so. Therefore, in order to offset the number of refugees Hasina should ask the population to follow a mandatory one child policy and absorb Rohingyas.

    Bangladeshi public deserve this kind of fake democracy.

    Useless clowns cast votes just because they found a certain politician convincing and they believed him/her, simply Pathetic.
    Democracy only works if you make up your own mind as to who will be the right choice for you.

    Are there no men in Bangladesh, will we elect a masculine figure as prime minister for once.....

    Those bunch of loosers perhaps even don't know the basic of diplomacy that 'diplomacy don't work unless supported by real hard power'. Currently the Bangladesh govt. has only one type of diplomacy, that is 'begging diplomacy'. Beg door to door for sympathy and support without any avail. While Burmese are acquiring SY-400 short range ballistic missile solely aimed for Bangladesh. With this missile, they can reduce Chattogram into rubble in case of a war.
