Bangkok, 22 March, (Asiantribune.com): While dismissing the border fencing move by Burmese military regime ‘a foolish idea,’ Burmese Rohingya Association in Thailand has rebuked that ‘The solution is not fencing the border but restoring the Rohingyas citizenship rights.’
In a statement released to the press, Enayet Ullah, General Secretary Burmese Rohingya Association in Thailand pointed out that ‘State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) military junta thinks that by fencing ‘they can silence the world showing that they care about the suffering Rohingyas not to flee from Arakan which caused the neighboring countries a headache.’
He further added that the more the SPDC invents new ways to further tighten their grips on Rohingyas to suffocate them, the situation will be more worsened and the world public opinion and the attitudes of ASEAN will go against the Burmese military junta.
“So, it is the responsibility of the neighboring countries, ASEAN and UN to seek a durable solution for the suffering Rohingya people in Burma, instead of a temporary solution of halting the Rohingyas who are risking their lives through ocean to find a safe place of shelter,” – said Enayet Ullah,
He castigated the junta for accelerating the exterminating campaign and killing the innocent Rohingyas by Nasaka as reported by the Kaladan Press network on fabricated and false accusations.
General Secretary Burmese Rohingya Association in Thailand expressed his grave concern on the worsening situation of Rohingyas in Arakan and urged the international NGOs and all Governments to exert pressure on the SPDC Government to cease all inhuman activities against innocent Rohingya civilians in northern Arakan State.
Enayet Ullah, General Secretary of the Burmese Rohingya Association in Thailand said “We also urge the United Nations to send a fact-finding mission to Arakan so as to bring the real facts happening in Arakan as the SPDC military junta is distorting the reality of the Rohingyas condition compelling them to confess the Bengali ethnicity instead of Rohingya identity and ethnicity.
