A video of terrorists in Burmese army uniform unleashing terror on unarmed and innocent Rohingya Muslims have gone viral on social media. In the video a group of Burmese army personnel can be seen committing huge human rights violations against two groups of unarmed Rohingya Muslims.
These Rohingya Muslims, one of the most persecuted ethnic groups in the world, have their legs and hands tied with metal chains. The terrorists in uniform then go on punching, kicking and even caning them mercilessly despite knowing that they are unable to defend them from any onslaught.
The latest video surfaced on the day the British government joined the international community to increase pressure on Myanmar to tackle the violence against Rohingya Muslims.
The army action, which has the support of Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, has shockingly gone unnoticed by the United Nations Security Council, which on Sunday called for an emergency meet following the Hydrogen bomb test by North Korea. More than 500 Muslims have reportedly been killed by the terrorists disguised as army personnel in Myanmar in the latest offensive.
UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the attacks were “besmirching the reputation” of the country following reports by a human rights group that people, including young children, have been burned alive in the country, while others have been beheaded.
Rakhine, the poorest region in Myanmar, is home to more than a million Rohingya. They have faced decades of persecution in the Buddhist-majority country, where they are not considered citizens.
Suu Kyi won the Nobel Peace Prize for her political activism in Myanmar, which led to the first non-military elected head of state in the country since the military coup in 1962.
Although Htin Kyaw was sworn in as President in 2016 as Suu Kyi is constitutionally barred from holding the position ? she is considered the de facto leader of the country.
About 58,600 Rohingya civilians have left Myanmar, also known as Burma, and fled to neighbouring Bangladesh. Some have drowned while trying to make the journey.
Suu Kyi has publicly expressed her disgust for Rohingya Muslims and even was unhappy on being interviewed by a Muslim BBC journalist. Demands are growing that the Nobel Committee must consider withdrawing the Peace Honour it accorded to a lady, who’s turned out to be a symbol of Islamophobia in Asia.
