As natural and healthcare disasters looming over more than a million Rohingya refugees confined in squalid Bangladesh refugee camps after fleeing the recent campaigns of genocide in their native Burma, Rohingya lose hopes of voluntarily returning to their places of origin as the world is failing all over again and the genocidal Burma is taking steps and consolidating polices and laws of discrimination and persecution which will permanently undermine the existence of Rohingya as a distinct ethnic, cultural and religious group.

As the world celebrates “The International Women’s Day” on March 8, more than 357,000 Rohingya women and girls are among nearly a million of Rohingya population which is forced to flee their place of origin, suffering harrowing crimes of genocide – murder, rape, sexual violence, throwing into fire, arson, killing of beloved ones, destruction of home and properties, denial of basic human rights and denial of the atrocities being committed by Myanmar Armed Forces in coordination with Buddhist vigilantes.

“Like when there’s no life, there’s no value in a person. A country’s life is in its constitution. When there’s no constitution, the country is dead and useless.

“Let’s imagine. At the time of Independence in 1948, our country had life, soul and constitution. 13 years later on March 2, 1962, the military forcibly removed the constitution – the country’s soul and heart from its body. Then, the dictator regime rule [the country].

S”ince that day, slowly and slowly, we reached the bottom of poverty. To what stage we have reached is that we hit the final bottom 10 of 211 countries of the world. We are on the 7th [poorest country].” U KO NI Read More

When the members of Rohingya community visited the Mansion House in the heart of city on September 19, the Lord Mayor of Dublin showed the plate hung in the house. It strikes us deep in our heart with the extreme example of solidarity, generosity, kindness and compassion that the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma showed towards the victims of “An Gorta Mor” – Irish Great Famine of 1847 by donating 710 Dollars, despite enduring the Trail of Tears after the series of forced removal from their ancestral homes.

Ireland has since become a nation which respects and stands for human rights, and becomes an exemplary champion of human rights.

Now is the time for this great city to forge another unbreakable bond with another persecuted people who face the mirror-image of “Trail of Tears”, and it is time to show the world that this historical city still carries the honour, the freedom and the hope which is instilled for the deprived groups of people like the Rohingyas…..

As evidence mounts to genocidal acts against Rohingya, Myanmar Military plays with unverified and unidentified dead-bodies uncovered in Kha Maung Seik [Fakirabazar], Maungdaw.

Quickly points finger to Rohingya insurgents while denying and blocking independent investigations.

The military and the NLD government independently claimed that the victims are ‘Hindu’, and exploit Hindu villagers to spread propaganda and divert attention from the military’s genocidal crimes. Read More

Ireland can no longer wait. This great country experienced the worst in the past when a million men, women, young boys and girls lost their lives in one of the largest tragedies in the history of humanity, partly resulted in disorganization of the ruling at the time and “too little too late” in response.

Ireland can no longer accept the excuses the world’s leaders and the Burmese government. Definitely not from Aung San Suu Kyi, who was given “cead mile failte” – “a hundred thousand welcomes” when she made her visit to this great city on June 18, 2012. She was also given the most prestigious award of the city, “the Freedom of the City of Dublin”.

The scorched earth strategy was masterminded by Dictator General Ne Win in 1963, who was inspired by Japan’s “THREE ALLs” (‘Kill all, Burn all and Loot all’) tactics.

It was called “SWEEPING” an area “suspected villagers and burning their villages”.

The Four Cuts is intended to cut off food, funds, intelligence and recruits to ethnic insurgencies. Often referred as “NO MAN’S LAND” policy in 1990s, it is now directly commanded by the office of commander-in-chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. Read More

The clashes between Rohingya insurgents at a number of Burmese police posts in Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung townships on August 25, 2017, are followed by month-long provocations from Burmese Military and Rakhine Extremists.

These offensive and provocative acts are believed to be strategic moves towards militarisation by the military intelligence, with an aim to create further fears and chaos among the communities living in the northern Rakhine State.

These provocations–expanded upon below– are a calculated attempt to undermine the recommendations made by Kofi Annan’s Advisory Commission, which officially submitted the final report to Aung San Suu Kyi led National League for Democracy NLD government on Friday, August 25. Read More

When an army lies, it lies too many too often

Since General Ne Win’s coup on March 2, 1962, Tatmadaw (Burma’s Armed Forces) becomes a delusional institution entirely built on a lie.

He announced the lie after coup, “I have to inform you, citizens of the Union that Armed Forces have taken over the responsibility and the task of keeping the country’s safety, owing to the greatly deteriorating conditions of the Union.” Read More

Things that begin badly end worse!

PEOPLE WITHOUT IDs

Rohingya welcomed the Year 2016 as people without IDs. Former President Thein Sein ordered to repeal of temporary identity cards, also known as ‘White Cards’ in February 2015. The last pieces of document Rohingya came to possess after decades of systematic forceful documents seizures.

DISENFRANCHISED PEOPLE

The revoke of the IDs completely stripped of Rohingya last right – Voting despite having participated in every election before and after Burma’s Independence.
