FRESH ATTACK ON MUSLIMS IN MYANMAR – WHY IS THE UN AND ASEAN SECRETARIAT ACTION LESS?
MAPIM regrets and registers its strong condemnation on the recent report of a fresh violence that had taken place in Thandwe township,Rakhine State,Myanmar on Mon,Sep 30,2013.
The prevailing ethnic violence by the Rakhine extremist has again targeted a mosque in Kyawk Gyi village and 4 Muslim houses in Nga Kyaw Taung village.
Information conveyed to us that 2 Muslim houses in Endow village were completely destroyed and set ablaze by the Rakhinese , backed by the notorious Myanmar government in Thandwe township in Rakhine State,Myanmar at 11.00 pm.
The report even disclosed of a planned Rakhine terrorist attack at 12.00 pm on the September 30th , directed at the villages located on the way from Gwa township to Thandwe township .
We are outrage at the Myanmar security , again showing its indirect complicity with the terrorist and allowing the genocide to prevail. The ongoing attack is happening with some muslim houses set ablaze .
MAPIM reassert its unreserve condemnation at the Myanmar government’s ongoing agenda of decimating the Muslim population in the country .
The inaction less of the UN and the Asean Secretariat is most unacceptable and we demand that the international community act swiftly to avoid another round of massacre targeting the Muslims in general and the Rohingya in particular.
We cannot understand why there is standstill on the part of the UN Human Rights Council not to push for a sanction on Myanmar as all findings clearly indicate genocide is the policy of the present government.
