Innocent Muslims being killed in Burma; no voice raised by Human Rights Organizations yet!

Muslims all over the world are dying at the hands of their governments, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, when it comes to Burma, the number of people being killed on daily basis is countless yet the human rights organizations around the world have not raised any voice in order to adequately address the outrageous killing of minority Muslims in Burma.

As per the reports, many ethnic Rohingya Muslims in Burma are being killed on daily basis. According the sources, more than 650 of nearly one million Rohingya Muslims have been murdered in Burma till date and almost over 1,200 are missing. Furthermore, around 90,000 have been displaced.

Reportedly, Rohingya Muslims settled in Burma back in the eight century but they have been accepted by the Buddhist community and this is a reason why they are killing innocent Muslims on daily basis.

Countries like the United States have always been prominent in such issues. They have always come out to rescue nations like Israel against Palestine. Nevertheless, since this time Muslims are being killed, they are all silent.

What is happening in Burma, also known as Myanmar, is a direct violation of the international laws and should be categorized as crime against humanity but unfortunately everyone has turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the plight of the Muslims.

The thing which hurts the most is that Burma’s peace prize laureate Aung Sen Suu Kyi, who once said that ‘the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma is a struggle for life and dignity’ has also not highlighted the issue yet.

Recently some of the Muslim and Buddhist organizations of India wrote a letter to Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, in which they demanded his intervention to stop killings of Muslims in Burma.

Well, all said and done, whatever is being done with the helpless minority in Burma should be highlighted immediately in order to stop the Burmese government from doing such a cruel treatment.
