A short history of the Rohingya people



Myanmar sekat Palang Merah masuk ke kem pelarian


AFP - GAMBAR fail 4 Januari lalu menunjukkan anggota polis mengawasi sebahagian penduduk etnik Rohingya di perkampungan Kotankauk, Rakhine, Myanmar.

YANGON – Jawatankuasa Palang Merah Antarabangsa (ICRC) meminta Myanmar membenarkan kakitangan badan itu masuk ke kawasan etnik Rohingya yang terperangkap dalam konflik keganasan.

Presiden ICRC, Peter Maurer berkata, pihak berkuasa telah menyekat badan itu daripada meng*akses ke beberapa kawasan yang berada di bawah kawalan pasukan tentera etnik minoriti itu selain menghalang melawat banduan.


“Oleh itu, kami mahu mendapatkan akses kepada golongan berkenaan untuk membuat penilaian selain memudahkan menghulurkan bantuan mengikut keperluan,” katanya kepada wartawan di sini kelmarin.

Maurer telah membuat lawatan ke barat laut negeri Rakhine apabila melawat sebahagian kem yang wujud hampir lima tahun lalu. Kem tersebut menempatkan sejumlah penduduk kehilangan tempat tinggal akibat pertempuran antara etnik Islam Rohingya dan etnik Buddha.

Maurer mengakui akses ke kawasan konflik sukar dipertimbangkan atas dasar keselamatan tetapi ia amat diperlukan bagi membolehkan bantuan dapat disampaikan kepada mereka yang berkenaan.

“Hakikatnya, tiada sebarang peralatan berkesan yang mampu meredakan ketegangan berbanding prosedur memberi akses kepada pertubuhan kemanusiaan seperti kami,” katanya.

Beliau sehingga kini tidak dapat melawat utara negeri Rakhine apabila operasi ke*selamatan dilancarkan sebagai respons kepada serangan pemberontak pada Oktober lalu menyebabkan kira-kira 74,000 penduduk terpaksa melarikan diri ke Bangladesh.

Maurer dijangka melawat negeri Kachin semalam, tetapi kerajaan telah menolak permohonan untuk melawat kubu kuat Tentera Kemerdekaan Kachin (KIA) di Laiza.

DHAKA: Pihak berkuasa Bangladesh menahan berpuluh-puluh minoriti Islam Rohingya Myanmar dan dua lelaki yang disyaki cuba menyeludup mereka secara haram ke Malaysia dengan menggunakan bot, kata polis semalam.

Dua warga Bangladesh itu didakwa atas kesalahan penyeludupan manusia selepas mengatur perjalanan ke Malaysia, yang pertama cubaan seumpamanya selepas dua tahun, kata Ketua Polis Teknaf, Mainuddin Khan.

"Bertindak atas maklumat awam, kami menahan 19 warga Myanmar di sebuah rumah di Teknaf semalam, ketika mereka berkumpul sebelum menaiki bot ke Malaysia," kata Khan.

"Mereka berkata, mereka membayar Tk 10,000 (RM543) setiap seorang untuk perjalanan itu." Berpuluh-puluh ribu etnik Rohingya dari Myanmar dan pendatang Bangladesh yang mencari pekerjaan sanggup menempuh perjalanan berbahaya menyeberangi Teluk Bengal ke negara-negara yang lebih makmur, termasuk Thailand dan Malaysia.

Namun pada 2015, beribu-ribu pelarian yang menaiki bot diarah berpatah balik oleh negara-negara di Asia Tenggara, sekali gus mencetuskan krisis serantau dan tindakan keras ke atas mereka yang terbabit dalam perdagangan dan penyeludupan manusia.

Cubaan terbaru untuk menggunakan semula laluan yang pernah popular suatu ketika dulu itu adalah kes pertama dikesan, kata Khan. - AFP

'Myanmar belum berubah'

YANGON: Myanmar masih menggunakan taktik sama dengan bekas junta tentera dalam memastikan rakyatnya tidak bersuara, kata wakil khas Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (PBB), Yanghee Lee.

Beliau turut menggesa kerajaan membenarkan badan dunia itu menyiasat dakwaan pembersihan etnik ke atas penduduk Islam Rohingya.

Lebih 70,000 etnik Rohingya melarikan diri ke Bangladesh sejak Oktober lalu berikutan tindakan kejam pasukan keselamatan Myanmar menyebar pelbagai cerita mengenai pembunuhan beramai-ramai, rogol berkumpulan dan kebakaran oleh pasukan keselamatan.

Penyiasat PBB bimbang tentera menggunakan operasi mencari militan yang menyerang polis sebagai alasan melakukan pembersihan etnik ke atas minoriti itu.

Kerajaan menyangkal keras dakwaan itu tetapi enggan membenarkan misi PBB menyiasat atau memberi kebenaran masuk kepada wartawan antarabangsa atau aktivis hak asasi.

Lee menggesa kerajaan membenarkan kemasukan misi kerana masih menerima laporan penderaan dilakukan pasukan keselamatan di Rakhine.

Beliau berkata, polis dan tentera cuba mengugut dan mengganggu penduduk Rohingya kerana membongkar pencabulan hak mereka dengan cara sama dilakukan bekas pemerintah tentera.

"Saya kecewa melihat taktik kerajaan terdahulu masih diamalkan," katanya kepada sidang akhbar di Yangon pada akhir lawatan 12 harinya ke negara itu. - AFP

Myanmar dakwa campur tangan PBB burukkan keadaan.

YANGON 18 Julai - Myanmar menegaskan misi Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (PBB) untuk meneliti tuduhan rogol, penyiksaan dan pembunuhan penduduk Islam Rohingya hanya akan `memburukkan’ masalah di barat Rakhine.

Myanmar enggan memberi visa kepada tiga pakar yang telah dilantik PBB pada Mei lalu untuk meneliti tuduhan penyiksaan yang dilakukan anggota tentera negara itu.

Pada minggu lalu, duta Amerika Syarikat (AS) ke PBB, Nikki Haley menggesa Myanmar untuk menerima misi berkenaan yang diputuskan oleh resolusi Majlis Hak Asasi Manusia.

Penasihat Keselamatan Negara Myanmar, Thaung Tun memberitahu pegawai PBB, para diplomat termasuk duta Amerika Syarikat (AS), Scot Marciel bahawa negara itu tidak akan terlibat dengan keputusan yang dibuat itu kerana tidak kukuh.

Army General, Police, Ringleaders Found Guilty of Involvement in Rohingya Death Camp

BANGKOK — The Criminal Court on Wednesday convicted the ringleaders and dozens of other defendants linked to a mass human trafficking ring behind a Rohingya death camp raided in 2015.

For his role as the most senior official in the operation, Lt. Gen. Manas Koongpan was found guilty of exploiting his authority during his time as director of the Internal Security Operations Command, or ISOC Region 4, overseeing the southern region through which the trafficking route ran.

Also convicted were the other two kingpins of the case, former local administrator of Satun province Patchuban Angchotipan, or Ko Tong, and former mayor of Padang Besar subdistrict in Songkhla province, Banjong Pongphol.


Another two police officers, Lt. Col. Chan U-thong and Sub. Lt. Narathorn Samphan, were also found guilty as facilitators.

The court on Wednesday evening had yet to announce the sentences for those found guilty, which are due to be issued upon conclusion of the lengthy verdict.

They were among 103 arrested suspects out of total 153 issued warrants – including bureaucrats, local administrators, businessmen and police officers – found guilty of human trafficking and participating in the transnational crime network behind a human slave camp raided in the southern provinces bordering Malaysia.

A makeshift stockade found in the jungle was said to have been used by traffickers to detain Rohingya refugees until their families could pay ransom money. Mass graves were found behind the camp.

The court on Wednesday evening was still reading the lengthy verdicts for all 103 defendants, but had already rendered dozens of guilty verdicts on a wide range of offenses.

They were part of an operation that involved many officials across three main provinces. It began when Manas ordered the extradition of a group of Rohingya refugees that arrived by boat in Ranong and Satun provinces, before the network took them to be detained at the mountain camp in Songkhla province.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was the army chief at the time Manas was promoted to the position of director.

The general was informed of 14 charges under the 2008 Anti-Human Trafficking Act and other relevant laws. He denied all of them and was imprisoned for the past two years of the trial along with the rest of defendants whose bails were denied.

Witness said Manas ordered the extradition of the Rohingyas without sending them through due legal process and benefited from the operation. He reportedly received more than 14 million baht from agents during that time.

The human trafficking case – the biggest in the country to date – was linked to the refugee crisis that emerged in 2015, when thousands of Rohingya boarded boats to flee persecution and poverty in Myanmar and Bangladesh. Many were allegedly left to die at sea by traffickers.

Rights groups have long accused Thai officials of turning a blind eye to such operations – and even being complicit.

But since seizing power in 2014, the military government pledged to tackle human trade networks. Pressure to do so was ramped up when the United States downgraded Thailand to the worst possible ranking in a annual report on human trafficking. While Thailand has been returned to Tier 2 status in the US State Department’s latest Trafficking in Persons report, it said not enough was being done to bring officials to justice.

Those found in May 2015 in the Songkhla province camp were ethnic Rohingya, a minority group persecuted in Myanmar, where they are labeled illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. Those found had hoped to reach Muslim-majority Malaysia but were kidnapped by traffickers along the way.

Media reports later featured first-person accounts about of captives allegedly forced to contact their families to demand ransom money while they faced routine mistreatment in the form of beatings, gang-rapes and more.

The mass graves found behind the jungle camp were thought to have contained the bodies of those who did not survive the inhuman conditions or died from the abuse.

The head of the investigation team, police Maj. Gen. Paween Pongsirin, was moved to the southern border province – home to a decades-long insurgency – after he requested an arrest warrant for Manas. Paween fled the country and later appeared in television in Australia where he said he was seeking asylum, citing threats to his life from influential Thai authorities for his role in the investigation.

Right groups such as Fortify Rights issued a statement this week calling Thai authorities to hold perpetrators accountable.

More Than 80,000 Rohingya Children Are Starving To Death, In Need Of Treatment For Malnutrition



A study conducted by the World Food Programme (WFP) has prompted United Nations to warn of the heart-rending situation that over tens of thousands of starving Rohingya children are malnourished.

Upon assessing 45 villages in the western Rakhine state between March 16 and April 10 of this year, the report stated that 80,500 children – who are five years old and below – are malnourished as each one of them failed to meet the minimum adequate diet.


“Preliminary data of early 2017 shows an increase in children requiring treatment of acute malnutrition,” the WFP report said.

“And it is estimated that 80,500 children under the age of five are expected to be in need of treatment for acute malnutrition over the next twelve months.”

The Independent also underlined that food deprivation is a severe predicament to a point where one third of homes Maungdaw are forced to live without food for 24 hours or their homes empty of nourishment.

“The survey has confirmed a worsening of the food security situation in already highly vulnerable areas following the security incidents and ensuing violence in late 2016,” the report read and added that the food prices have gone up due to scarcity.


Child’s View Of Burma’s Horror: By Mohammed, an 11-year-old boy from Kyuak Phuyu: 'The houses were attacked by Buddhists and monks. They tried to defend the mosque'


Child’s View Of Burma’s Horror: By Shashida,18-year-old woman from Kyuak Phuyuh: 'The mosque was also attacked. People ran to their boats but some were set on fire.'

The report also highlighted that these refugees who fled military oppression and violence that blanketed their homeland were losing weight at a rapid rate – that subsequently factored in to their weakened immune system.

As such, victims of malnutrition are forced to depend on humanitarian aid and the looming rainy season coupled with the refugees’ restricted movements will further heighten their fragile food predicament.

While the exact figure of respondents involved in the assessment is bleak, WFP found that approximately 38,000 households corresponding to 225,800 people are in need of humanitarian assistance.

Last year, over a dozen of Nobel laureates criticised Myanmar’s de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, in an open letter written to the UN Security Council as they warned of the tragedy “amounting to ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.”



The letter that was penned by a group of 23 activists, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Malala Yousafzai, highlighted that the military violence resulted in the deaths of hundreds including children, women being raped, houses being burnt down and unjustified civilian arrests.

“Access for humanitarian aid organisations has been almost completely denied, creating an appalling humanitarian crisis in an area already extremely poor.

“Some international experts have warned of the potential for genocide. It has all the hallmarks of recent past tragedies – Rwanda, Darfur, Bosnia, Kosovo,” the letter read and warned that failure to take action will encourage starvation.

But rather than heeding the plea of her fellow Nobel laureates, the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize, Suu Kyi denied allegations of ongoing ethnic cleansing in Myanmar and deemed ethnic cleansing was a “too strong” world to describe the situation in Rakhine.

“I don't think there is ethnic cleansing going on,” Suu Kyi said in an interview with BBC.

The Myanmar government also reportedly forbids UN investigations on allegations pertaining murder, gang rape and torture carried out by the government against Rohingya Muslims.

An 18-year-old Rohingya refugee previously shared with ABC News of the terror that reigned upon Rohingya Muslims – inflicted by the Myanmar military.

“The Rakhinese entered and aimed the gun at my forehead. They held my hands strongly and did what they wanted to me.

“Then I was told to go back. But I didn't. I was sitting there. Then they started beating me and they took off my clothes,” she conveyed and added that the military officers raped her.



Since 2012, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) reported that over 168,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar as they seek stability in countries such as Bangladesh and Malaysia.

As a matter of fact, Malaysia was once the preferred refuge choice amongst refugees as between 2012 and 2015, at least 112,500 Rohingya refugees risked their lives on smuggler’s boast as they sailed across the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea to reach Malaysia.

Following the hellish situation that has grasped the state of Rakhine, Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has called for Islamic countries to join forces to put an end to the terror.

“This must happen now. The government of Myanmar disputes the terms 'genocide' and 'ethnic cleansing,' but whatever the terminology, the Rohingya Muslims cannot wait,” he said in the plight of the Rohingya refugees.

Thai smuggling crackdown leaves Myanmar’s Rohingya in limbo



SITTWE: Five years have passed since Hla Hla Sein was forced into a displacement camp in western Myanmar for Rohingya Muslims, where disease and deprivation are rife and armed guards patrol a barbed-wire perimeter.

But after a crackdown on the international smuggling routes that once offered a dangerous — but viable — escape route, she now sees no way out.


“We have no idea how many years we will have to live like this,” the 40-year-old widow told AFP inside the tiny bamboo hut she shares with her son, tugging nervously at her purple headscarf.

“Our lives are worse than animals… we are human only in name.”

Deadly sectarian riots in 2012 drove more than 120,000 Rohingya into the camps in Rakhine State, where they live in ramshackle homes and are deprived of adequate food, schools and doctors.

For years human traffickers cashed in on the group’s desperation, ferrying thousands of Rohingya across the Andaman Sea to countries like Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.

The journeys were defined by danger: from rickety boats on high seas to abuse and even death at the hands of the gangs, who held many victims for ransom in jungle camps on the Thai-Malaysia border.

That route was shuttered by Thailand’s junta in 2015 and few boats have left the camps since, according to residents, aid workers and migration experts.

The move may have spared Hla Hla Sein death at sea or abuse at the hands of smugglers, but it also cut off a way out of a painful limbo.

While a Bangkok court rules Wednesday on the fate of more than 100 people arrested for running the trafficking network, she will spend another day distributing food rations in the camp.

‘Ready to die’

Hla Hla Sein and her son had tried to escape to Malaysia before the crackdown, but their boat was so overcrowded it started to sink a few hours into the journey, forcing the captain to turn back.

It was only after they returned to shore that she found out the smugglers had planned to sell them as slaves at their destination.

“I was ready to die at sea as we have nothing in this country,” she said. “Our children cannot get education, even I cannot work. I thought dying would be better.”

Buddhist-majority Myanmar has long been chastised for its treatment of the Rohingya, a group of more than a million Muslims whose rights and freedoms have been successively stripped away since the early 1980s.

Over the past five years almost 170,000 have fled the country, according to the UN’s refugee agency, leaving many families split across borders.

“It’s impossible to go to Malaysia by boat nowadays,” said a Rohingya camp leader, asking not to be named. “We do not want people to die at sea.”

Recently, a new outburst of violence in northern Rakhine pushed more than 70,000 Rohingyas across Myanmar’s northwestern border to Bangladesh.

But Bangladesh plays an unwilling host to the minority and traffickers there are believed to now be smuggling Rohingya by road and air as far afield as Saudi Arabia, India, Nepal and Pakistan.

For those left behind in Myanmar’s camps, escape is no longer an option.

“We are suffering,” said Hla Hla Sein. “We are not supposed to stay like this forever.”

Rohingya pilih Malaysia kerana rakyat kita ni pemurah. Mereka senang nak hidup dengan minta derma dan sedekah di masjid dan kawasan makan.

Semalam isteri saya baru jumpa seorang di kedai biskut timbang.

Perempuan tu masuk dengan muka kesian minta air dan tunjuk peti ais.

Isteri saya minta tuan kedai tolong ambilkan air mineral sejuk untuk sedekah secara ikhlas. Isteri saya akan bayarkan.

Perempuan tu tolak dengan marah, dia kata dia nak minum air manis. Nak air soda "sugar water". Isteri saya terkejut kerana dia sendiri pun tak beli air macam tu di luar kerana nak berjimat zaman GST ni.

Kami kalau makan di KFC pun akan bawa bekal air mineral dan air kotak daripada rumah. Air kotak beli di Eco-SHop atau Tesco bila harga betul2 murah.

Sepatutnya kalau orang tu betul2 dahaga, dia ambil air mineral tu dan ucapkan terima kasih dan terus minum di situ juga.

Tuan kedai pun lepas kes tu baru buka cerita memang mereka selalu berlegar kawasan situ dan buat hal, mengada2 suruh pelanggan belikan air dan biskut timbang. Lepas tu pilih yang mahal2 sahaja.

Cuba bayangkan kaum ni (walaupun Islam) kalau kita bagi muka. Nanti di pijaknya kepala kita bila dah dapat warga negara.
