Malaysian PM tells Myanmar to 'stop the killing' of Rohingya, as Muslims meet

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak called on Myanmar on Thursday to stop all discrimination and attacks on Rohingya Muslims, and urged the world's Islamic countries to act to end an unfolding "humanitarian tragedy".

Malaysia has spoken out strongly against mostly Buddhist Myanmar over its treatment of its Rohingya minority, especially since October, when security forces launched a crackdown in the north of Rakhine State on the Bangladesh border, where many Rohingya live.

At least 86 people have been killed and an estimated 66,000 have fled into Bangladesh since nine Myanmar policemen were killed on Oct. 9 in attacks on border posts the Myanmar government blamed on Rohingya supported by foreign militants.

"The killing must stop. The violation of women and girls must stop," Najib, the leader of Muslim-majority Malaysia told a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) called by Malaysia to discuss the Rohingya.

"The persecution of your fellow men and women, simply on the grounds that they are Muslim, must stop," he said.

Refugees, residents and human rights groups say Myanmar forces have committed summary executions, raped women and burned homes.

But the Myanmar government led by Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi has denied the accusations, saying many of the reports are fabricated. It insists the strife in Rakhine State is an internal matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi: sorry, my dear, but the world cannot possibly unsee these atrocities:

Images: Rohingyas being persecuted by Myanmar military

So Aung San Suu Kyi, I have a message for you: if you don't like the reality that the world is witnessing this persecution of your ethnic Muslim minorities, and Malaysian Minister Razak is calling you out on this,then stop the damned behaviour by your military against them!!

I never thought this lifetime that I would have to say, "Watch out: here come the Buddhists!"

Unfortunately, Myanmar has become a place where this vicious persecution of its Muslim members makes that warning a reality.
