Burma struggles with Rohingya crisis
Myanmar authorities, Aung San Suu Kyi included, say the issue is complicated and takes a long way to resolve. Officers say that Islamic terrorism is to blame for the demolition of communities and the expulsion of man. And the Rohingya? Rohingya are one of the many minority Muslims in Myanmar, also known as Burma, which is a major Islamic state.
The majority have been living in Myanmar's west Rakhine state. As for Rohingya immigrants from Bangladesh, the Chinese authorities are looking for better business opportunities. It is not the first Rohingya have escaped the area. In 1978 and the early 90s, several hundred thousand escaped from armed and state repression.
Another 100,000 boats left Myanmar in 2012, as Myanmar moved from half a century of junta rule to democratic rule. Rakhine state has been undergoing ongoing violent activity since the end of August, when Rohingya fighters were attacking several policing and armed forces there. In response to the attack, however, many of Rohingya's soldiers have been murdered and many of their towns have been burnt to the ground.
More than 300,000 Rohingya are believed to have escaped to neighbouring Bangladesh. In Myanmar there are still tens of thousand people in need of nutrition and help. Demonstrators assaulted a ship that was willing to take 50 tonnes of International Red Cross troops' foods, drinking fountains and bed mats.
Assistance should be sent to Rohingya in the north of Rakhine. During the riots, eight persons were arrested. Journalists and right-wing extremists say they cannot find out what is going on in Myanmar's west Rakhine state. Recently, the administration allowed a group of journalists to pay a call on Hindu village dwellers who said they had been assaulted by Islamic terrorism.
Myanmar's head Aung San Suu Kyi has also been criticized internationally for not making much of a statement about Myanmar's army operations. It has urged the army not to harm guilty civilians. Yes, sir.
