What others say about us

Barack Obama

Today, we look at the recent violence in Rakhine State that has caused so much suffering, and we see the danger of continued tensions there.  For too long, the people of this state, including ethnic Rakhine, have faced crushing poverty and persecution.  But there is no excuse for violence against innocent people.  And the Rohingya hold themselves — hold within themselves the same dignity as you do, and I do.

“Necessary steps to address the legitimate grievances of minority communities, including the citizenship demands of the Muslim/Rohingya in Rakhine.” In prepared remarks by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. Ban Ki Moon criticized the government’s response to the sectarian crisis, saying President Thein Sein must take “concrete action” to punish the perpetrators of the violence and reduce tensions that led to the unrest.

These events (violence against Rohingya), violate the basic rights of the Rohingya Muslims to be protected as citizens and as a minority by their own government. They also represent a grave violation of Myanmar Government’s international commitments to protect civilians.

I’ve never had such a feeling… I was crying. I can’t explain the feeling I had. It was very moving. It is a success — mostly because it came at the invitation of a government that has largely remained silent about the repeated attacks on minority Muslims. I received assurances that the government was seeking to resolve issues of citizenship for Rohingya.
