Dalai Lama appeals to Suu Kyi over Rohingya crisis

Dalai Lama appeals to Suu Kyi over Rohingya crisis

Noting that Bangladesh had long protested the persecution of Rohingya Muslims, she told lawmakers she had "no words to condemn Myanmar".

"Myanmar has created the problem and they will have to solve it ..." Most of the victims have been Rohingya Muslims who have fled to squalid camps in Bangladesh.

At the same time, he deplored measures taken by India, which has said it is not a signatory to the Refugee Convention and can deport Rohingyas.

The latest security operation in Rakhine state follows attacks by militants on 25 August against 30 police posts.

An estimated 313,000 Rohingya Muslims crossed into Bangladesh after the violence began in Myanmar's restive Rakhine State on August 25.

The country's envoy to the United Nations blamed Rohingya insurgents for the violence in Rakhine state, saying that Myanmar would never tolerate such atrocities.

"Thousands of Rohingya families including children are sleeping out in the open or by a roadside because they don't have anywhere else to go".

She said Bangladesh protests this injustice and inhumane attitude towards Rohingyas in Rakhine state, and renewed her call to the worldwide community to mount pressure on the Myanmar government to take back their nationals.

She said Myanmar will have to take back all Rohingya refugees who entered Bangladesh. Some say they were attacked by Buddhist mobs.

The participants at the briefing also discussed ways to help Bangladesh face the Rohingya crisis, the diplomats said.

The Rohingya are extremely unpopular inside Myanmar.

Bangladesh-origin British lawmaker Rushanara Ali has said the global community must apply greater pressure on the Myanmar military as well as the civilian-led government to end the Rohingya crisis.

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei strongly criticized he silence and inaction of the global community and the so-called human rights advocates over atrocities carried out against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

The government said the situation in Myanmar was a "reminiscence" of what happened in Rwanda and Bosnia - where acts of genocide were committed, respectively in 1994 and 1995.

Bangladesh says their presence strains local resources, increases crime and deters tourists in the Cox's Bazar area.

The MJC will on Wednesday march through the streets of Cape Town in protest against the violence against the Rohingyan muslim minority in parts of Myanmar.

"The massive displacement and victimization of people, including large numbers of the ethnic Rohingya community and other minorities, shows that Burmese security forces are not protecting civilians", the statement released by the office of the White House press secretary said.
