The Rohingya ethnic minority(Comprising in the most part, Muslims and a small group of Hindus) as you already know is the most persecuted ethnic group in the world, as described by the UN in its report.The Rohingyas(Arakanese Indians) largely concentrated in the Rakhine province of Myanmar, is now systematically eliminated by a state sponsored violence, where large scale ethnic Cleansing, Genocide, rape, mass destruction of Rohingya settlement, and all other unimaginable crimes against humanity is being done with the help of the Myanmarese military.
Despite being able to trace Rohingya history to the 8th century, Rohingyas are considered immigrants from British India and are denied citizenship under the 1982 Burmese citizenship law.The Rohingyas are also restricted from freedom of movement, state education, and civil service jobs.Thus effectively they are a stateless ethnic group, without even basic rights available to them.Despite repeated pleadings and persuasion by the world nations, the Myanmar government is not ready to stop the violence committed by its military, nor to protect the Rohingyas, nor to provide them basic amenities.Many of the Rohingyas are migrating to Bangladesh, India and other nations, thereby the Issue has repercussions in many parts of Asia.
Since the Myanmarese state and sovereignty, have failed in their responsibility to protect the Rohingya from Genocide and ethnic cleansing, it is the duty of the UN and the International community to enforce the global political commitment of R2P(Responsibility to Protect), endorsed by all member states of the United Nations at the 2005 World Summit to prevent genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
The best remedy to permanently solve the issue is to provide separate statehood to the Rohingyas who for centuries are denied equal rights and protection.Since the 19th century, they are persecuted and even after two centuries, the Myanmarese sovereign hasn't enforced its responsibility towards them and it is unrealistic to expect the same from them in the future.
So our humble pleadings are:
Enforcement of R2P(Responsibility to Protect) in Myanmar and formation of separate state for Rohingyas, by making the Rakhine province(where the Rohingyas are concentrated) independent of Myanmar.
We have hope in the vision of UN and the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, which stand for the oppressed.We need the support of each one of you, and together we can let the UN and the Global Centre for the Responsibility to protect, to hear the desperate cries of the Rohingyas.Let's join hands for a peaceful world.
