Many believe Burma issue is based only on rumours and speculations, but there is certainly something wrong behind the wall. The Myanmar Muslims have always been a target and one should not doubt their misery.
According to the recent news, the Muslims will not be allowed to perform their religious obligations in Ramadan. Almost three hundred mosques have been closed and the poor Muslims will not be able to recite their holy book even in homes.
The armed forces and terrorists are marching down the streets, aiming to trouble every single Muslim. There are millions of Muslims in Burma, and not letting them live freely is completely against the international laws.
The whole international community is silent, just watching Myanmar Muslims’ despair which is increasing with every passing moment. Even if the reports of violence have been exaggerated, nobody can say that all is well in Burma.
The followers of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) have always been victimised by the anti-Muslim groups. Amnesty International also admitted that the Muslim Rohingyas are increasingly being hit with targeted attacks, including killings, rape and physical abuse.
Benjamin Zawacki, a Bangkok-based researcher for Amnesty, told The Associated Press. "Some of this is by the security forces’ own hands, some by Rakhine Buddhists with the security forces turning a blind eye in some cases."
On the other hand, the local officials are doing only one thing, denying all what is currently going on. A government spokesman for coastal Rakhine state said: “Amnesty’s claims are "totally opposite of what is happening on the ground."
According to United Nations (UN), nearly 800,000 Rohingyas live in Myanmar. On every single day, thousands of them attempt to get rid of an abused life, which includes forced labour, violence against women and restrictions on movement, marriage and reproduction.
However, the neighbouring countries are not ready to accept them. The situation is getting worse day by day, and most of us are still debating whether it’s true or not.
The time has come for the entire world to step up and fish the Muslims out of the hot waters. If we fail to do anything good for the victims in Burma, the history will never forgive us.
