Foreign Envoys Visit Rohingya Camps in Southeast Bangladesh

Foreign Envoys Visit Rohingya Camps in Southeast Bangladesh

UN chief Antonio Guterres on Thursday called on Myanmar to suspend military action in the restive Rakhine state from where hundreds and thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh.

"The savage treatment meted out to our Muslim brothers ... shall not pass without punishment", the jihadist terror network said in a statement, according to SITE.

Sushma emphasised that India is trying to build bilateral and multilateral pressure on Myanmar to stop the persecution of Rohingya Muslims as well as to take back the refugees sheltered in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Foreign Minister A.H. Mahmood Ali led the foreign dignitaries to the U.N. -run Kutupalong refugee camp to meet with Rohingya, who had abandoned their homes in Rakhine as they escaped from the latest cycle of violence there.

The move follows criticism of the chaotic conditions in which relief supplies have been handed out at the huge camps around Cox's Bazar, where about 389,000 Rohingya from Myanmar's Rakhine state have arrived since Aug 25.

This is probably because the world has this time been totally convinced of what the International State Crime Initiative (ISCI), had concluded in its 2015 report that "the Rohingya faces the final stages of genocide".

For the proper and equal distribution of aid items to the refugees the Cox's Bazar deputy commissioner's (DC) has already opened a control centre to receive donations and relief items.

"The humanitarian situation is catastrophic", Guterres said, adding that nearly 380,000 Rohingya refugees have fled into Bangladesh.

These include reducing the population growth of the Rohingyas by gradual imposition of restrictions on their marriages and by application of all possible methods of oppression and suppression against them, denying them higher studies, government jobs, ownership of lands, shops and buildings.

"The Rohingya problem is not an issue for Bangladesh alone; rather, it has turned into a global matter from a regional one", Sushma told Hasina.

The spokesman said the World Health Organization launches a vaccination drive on Saturday to immunize refugee children against measles and polio.

"Hopefully, they will message their headquarters that repatriation of Rohingya is the only solution", Alam said. The BJP governments in Assam and Manipur have issued "alerts to mount extra vigil in the border areas".

"Security forces surround a village, shoot people fleeing in panic and then torch houses to the ground".

Joined by journalists, the diplomats listened as refugees recounted tales of horrors allegedly suffered at the hands of Myanmar security forces.

Indonesians, however, have shown solidarity with the Rohingya, carrying out regular protests to support them.

The UN's International Organisation for Migration has said it will form a group of all UN agencies and private groups to coordinate aid work.

Fear also gripped the Muslim communities in Yangon and Mandalay, which were both affected by anti-Muslim violence in 2013, as rumors of possible attacks on Muslims emerged.

He called on Myanmar to grant citizenship rights to Rohingya.

Ms Suu Kyi was due to attend the UN General Assembly in New York next week, but has cancelled her visit to deal with the crisis.
