Myanmar: UN rights chief denounces ethnic cleansing

Myanmar: UN rights chief denounces ethnic cleansing

Speaking as she visited Kutupalong refugee camp in Cox's Bazar district, Hasina urged Myanmar to view the situation with humanity, saying innocent people were suffering. To improve relations we are providing free training to the military, even as it is committing ethnic cleansing. "I am.breaking my vow of silence on public affairs out of profound sadness about the plight of the Muslim minority in your country, the Rohingya", he wrote in an open letter.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Sunday also condemned Myanmar for "systematic brutal acts" against its Rohingya Muslims asking it to accept worldwide monitors.

Meanwhile, China has said it backs the Myanmar government's efforts to "uphold peace and stability" in Rakhine state.

The action had drawn worldwide condemnation with about 400,000 people signing a petition calling for the withdrawal of Nobel Peace prize conferred on the country's leader, Aung Suu Kyi.

Seibert renewed Berlin's call for all parties to the conflict to take steps toward a peaceful solution.

The top United Nations human rights official has denounced Myanmar's "brutal security operation" against Rohingya in Rakhine state, which he said was "clearly disproportionate" to militia attacks carried out last month.

While many have quoted United Nations conventions on this issue while criticising the government's decision to deport Rohingya Muslims, the question is whether the same would apply to India.

The de facto leader of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi, is facing mounting worldwide criticism, with The White House urging her to "respect the rule of law" and step up all efforts to end the widespread displacement of civilians.

Noting that Bangladesh had long protested the persecution of Rohingya Muslims, she told lawmakers she had "no words to condemn Myanmar".

Members of the Rohingya Muslim community have been fleeing Myanmar since the country's security forces in Rakhine began attacks on militants on August 25.

The UN documented mass gang rapes, killings - including infants and young children - brutal beatings and disappearances committed by security personnel.

Last year, Zeid issued a report warning that the pattern of gross violations of the human rights of the Rohingya suggested a widespread or systematic attack against the community, possibly amounting to crimes against humanity.

On September 5, Rijiju had said the government had set up a task force in various states to identify and deport Rohingya refugees in India.

Aid agencies have been overwhelmed by the influx of Rohingya, many of whom are arriving hungry and traumatized after walking for days through jungles or being packed into rickety wooden boats in search of safety in Bangladesh.
