Rohingya try to enter Bangladesh to flee Myanmar violence

Rohingya try to enter Bangladesh to flee Myanmar violenceā€

Expressing the concern over the reports of renewed violence and attacks by terrorists in northern Rakhine State Myanmar, MEA said, "India is seriously concerned by reports of renewed violence and terrorist attacks in northern Rakhine State Myanmar".

Following the attack on Friday, the army declared war against "terrorism" killing many and besieging townships of Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung, a home to almost 800,000 people, imposing a curfew in the area from 6 pm to 6 am. Last week, Rohingya militants attacked police and border outposts, and security forces responded.

As per media reports, thousands of Rohingyas are now fleeing Myanmar for Bangladesh as fresh violence recently erupted between Myanmarese security forces and Rohingya fighters.

The state counsellor's office has also ordered the country's media to use the term "terrorist" rather than "insurgent" to describe Rohingya militants, a move that reaffirms the widely held belief that the former Nobel Peace Prize victor is unlikely to take any public stance against the military's actions in the country's troubled northwest.

"The soldiers and security forces were not able to go as far as they thought they could", Nyi Pu said.

The Rohingya Muslim community are in dire need of the protections these instruments offer, now more than ever.

"Two of them have burn injuries while six have gunshot wounds".

Farid Alam, a Bangladeshi who lives in Amtoli village, through which many Rohingya have crossed the border, told the AP on Saturday that over last two days, at least 2,000 Rohingya had entered Bangladesh.

While Myanamar's government and religious leaders look forward to the visit, Buddhist nationalists have said they don't want the pope to instigate issues over a persecuted Muslim minority group called the Rohingya.

The government refuses to recognize Rohingya as a legitimate native ethnic minority, calling them Bengalis to reflect the position that they are mostly illegal immigrants from neighboring Bangladesh.

Not to mention the blood on our hands if we make no effort to stop the massacre of the Rohingya now.

In more recent months the group has become less publicly Islamic, changing its name to the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army.

There are also eyewitness accounts from Maungdaw, saying that the Myanmar military have entered villages and are burning homes and properties and shooting people dead.

The group said many people including women and children took shelter in the jungle, others risked crossing the Myanmar-Bangladesh border, whereas most were stranded on the Myanmar-side of the Naf River as Bangladesh tightened its border security and continued to push back the fleeing Rohingya.

The Rohingya have long faced severe discrimination and were the targets of violence in 2012 that killed hundreds and drove about 140,000 people-predominantly Rohingya-from their homes to camps for the internally displaced, where most remain.

The Burmese army has been accused of carrying out extra-judicial killings of Rohingya Muslims in response to clashes with insurgents.
