The Muslims of Rakhaine state of Myanmar are considered as Rohingya who are the most silently tortured nation. Their history and rights are so unfocused that they are unknown to their own homeland. Recently in a question about Rohingya, democratic leader Aung San Suu Kyi said-‘Rohingya? Who are they’? From this statement we are now understanding about the painful situation of Rohingya Muslims.
Recently it is reported that three Rohingya Muslims raped a Buddhist woman. And by brought over this issue some Buddhist had killed almost 10 innocent Rohingya Muslims by stopping a bus. This is the main reason of present riot. But this is nor the first oppression upon Rohingyas by Rakhaine Buddhists. There are several times in history in 1978, 1991 when million rohingyas were tortured by Rakhaines; they entered in Bangladesh. At present time many organizations only create pressure to Bangladesh to permit these refugees for entering into border and help them. But is this a permanent solution in aspect of Rohingya? Don’t they have any right on their own land Myanmar? Why do united nation, UN’s refugees high commission (UNHCR), human rights make force Bangladesh for helping them? Why they don’t articulate Myanmar govt. to stop killing? Now, it is clearly proved that humanity organization don’t want a permanent solution about Rohingya Muslims. They give independent certificate to West Timor, South Sudan but they are dumb in the case of Rohingya, Kashmir and Palestine Muslims. Now it a question or matter of thinking that, by sheltering or transpiring the Rohingyas in other countries does the international organization want to make Myanmar as a Buddhist country?
It is a matter of great sorrow that, Myanmar president Thein Sein said -“It is impossible to accept these illegal Rohingya refugees”. Illegal Rohingya? Is Mr. President forgetting the history of Rohingya Muslims? History says- in Arakan (Rakhain) state, the Arab Muslims first started living at seventh century at the period of Muhammad Ibn Hanafia. So I think- it is necessary to open the pages of Rohingya history to the world. How the Arakan state become introduced with a new name Rakhaine, how was the period of general Ne win (1962), what was the immigration Act (1974) by which the nationality of Rohingyas was canceled- each and everything of history should be open.
Finally, at the present situation Bangladesh Govt. should help Rohingyas by giving food, cloth and medicine. Bu this help should not be permanent. On the other hand Rohingya refugees are not the only problem of Bangladesh. There are many Rohingya in Saudi Arab, Thailand and Malaysia. Now as a Muslim it is the duty of all Muslim countries to raise voice against this riot of Myanmar and grow attention of all national and international organizations.
