TO THE BURMESE AMBASSADOR
MEMORANDUM TO THE MYANMAR EMBASSY IN MALAYSIA:
STOP THE ETHNIC CLEANSING AND SUPPRESSION OF ROHINGYA IN MYANMAR, ALLOW HUMANITARIAN AID EFFOER AND START A LONG TERM SOLUTION OF THE PLIGHT OF THE ROHINGYA PEOPLE IN MYANMAR
We hereby demand the followings to be implemented immediately:
1. We the Malaysian people demand that the Burma government to immediately stop the killing and the atrocities committed against the Rohingya Muslim minority.
We would like to strongly protest the act of the Burmese government in its unjust treatment of the Rohingyas ethnicity in Burma.
We also call the ASEAN member countries to demand that the killings and atrocities on the Rohingya must be halted immediately.
A review of Myanmar’s membership in ASEAN must decided if Myanmar refuses to act to stop the carnage.
We call for the United Nations to convene immediately for a special emergency session to resolve the plight of the Rohingya Muslims by pressuring Myanmar to comply by the UN Universal Human Rights Declaration on matters pertaining to protection of minority rights.
2. We demand the Burmese government give access for humanitarian aid: food, medical aid and supplies the Rohingyas through the United Nations, ASEAN, OIC and other channels.
We demand that the humanitarian aid agencies must be allowed to proceed in the flashpoint districts; Maungdaw, Akyab and Bathidung where thousands of Rohingyas had fled for safety especially at the Bangladesh border, the only route out to avoid from the spiraling massacre.
3. We demand that dialouge for the long term peace of the Rohingyas begin between United Nations, ASEAN and OIC with the Burmese government.
We call for a reconciliation and national dialogue to be held to restore the citizenship of the Rohingyas in Myanmar and to recognize their rights as minorities.
The Rohingyas citizenship which was unrightfully taken away by your government in 1982 should be reinstated and to the show the world that the Burmese government are humane and tolerant to all of its people.
We have strong faith that the Buddhist religion and its practices does not condone violence. We believe Buddha will not condone the discrimination and inhumane act towards the Rohingyas which we think may lead to bad karma to the Burmese people.
We can assure that if you treat any human being well, more good and prosperity will come to Burma.
We believe that the act of aggression committed will only bring disgrace to Burma and the Burmese government in the long term which will affect your country’s reputation among the international community.
