On September 25, Myanmar Police found a mass grave containing dozens of dead bodies of Hindus, in the conflict-torn Rakhine state. The police confirmed that the grave had total 28 dead bodies, out of which 20 are women and 8 men, including six dead bodies of boys who were under the age of ten.

The Conflict Zone 

The Rakhine region is dominated by the Radical Islamist Rohingyas, who are targeting the Hindus and other peaceful communities over there. They have been carrying out the attacks on the Hindu villages since a month. Recently, about 500 Hindus left their villages in the Rakhine state and now are living in a camp near Bangladesh border.

Rohingya Militants have completely destroyed the Northern Rakhine village and have brutally attacked villagers.

The Growing Tension

The Rohingya Muslims are in the clash with the majority Buddhist. Since, October last year, Myanmar forces are in the direct clash with the ARSA. The internal conflict is growing bigger and bigger and does not seem to stop. The rage between the two is said to have been aggravated after, The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) ravaged police posts.

The ARSA is also said to have links with Radical Islamist organizations and Militants in other parts of the world.

Why left out?

The ongoing conflict in the Rakhine region has killed dozens of Hindus and displaced many. But unfortunately, no one has come forward to condemn atrocities on Hindus. It seems that the left liberators and the social activists are quite choosy about their issues of concern and killings of Hindus does not matter to them. (VOA)

A generation of Rohingya children in Myanmar and Bangladesh will be condemned to a perpetual life in limbo unless coordinated international action is taken to end the violence and discrimination against the Rohingya people, according to the UNICEF report Lives in Limbo.

More than half a million Rohingya refugee children are estimated to have fled to Bangladesh. The report by the U.N. children’s fund says that these children face multiple dangers, including the imminent threat of floods, landslides, and waterborne disease outbreaks during the upcoming monsoon and cyclone seasons, as well as the exploitation and early marriages that arise from living in congested, slumlike conditions.

However, the situation for the estimated 185,000 children who remain in Myanmar’s Rakhine state is considered even grimmer, according to Simon Ingram, author of the report.

He says families there reportedly are living isolated, fearful lives with minimal access to basic services.

“I think, if we are looking for an indicator of the situation on the ground, there is the fact that people are still continuing to come at the rate of something like 1,000 or more a week, crossing into Bangladesh,” Ingram said. “So, I think that that number itself speaks to the situation on the ground — the anxiety, the fear, the continued threat of violence and the hope of those people and those communities.”

UNICEF is urging the Myanmar government to end the violence, to lift restrictions on Rohingya freedom of movement in Rakhine state, to provide for their basic needs, and to grant unlimited access to humanitarian agencies.

UNICEF says the nearly 700,000 Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh will not return to their homes in Myanmar without guarantees of safety. In the meantime, it says, education offers one of the best opportunities for Rohingya children to achieve a better future. (VOA)
