    Neighbouring countries should help however the more they help, the more the Burmese will simply ethnically cleanse even more of their Rohingya population. More than anything else something needs to be done to force Myanmar to take some action.

    500k Rohingyas in BD. Another 100k has come last 10days. Who said they are not letting them in or not opening their hearts to Rohingya?

    BD can only do so much. Where are the mighty Oil filthy rich Arab/middle east nations?
    Only Turkey willing to stand up and make a difference, willingly to cover the expenses (that's what they said). Shame on the filthy rich countries, had done nothing to help.

    Almighty above the sky will question those clown leaders of them places, what you did with the wealth you had when some of the muslims in much needed help to survive after fleeing from genocide from the Burmese barbaric army/Buddhist extremists. So much wealth they have to spend in competition with each other making skyscrapers, to show off. When they could least help fund some expenses for the Rohingya refugees.


    BD has done more than enough. No one sane should question the effort of BD. And it's continuing to help more Rohingya fleeing Burma.

    Thats true. However, we have to think practically. Bangladesh is in no position to help Rohingyas. Even if they let them in, they will escape the butchering but will have to face even bigger problem: HUNGER.

    How can BD able to help and feed Rohingyas when they are unable to feed their very own. Govt of BD maybe able to provide them food for initial period but then law of economics will kick in and they will left with a choice to make.

    I really wish UN provides BD with economic help which in return can help Rohingyas.

    Bangladesh is a developing nation with an uber-high population and density and can't mess around with candyfloss subjective notions like that. How well did it work out for Pakistan when they opened the floodgates to displaced Afghans? You tell me.

    And look at Europe with the Syrian refugees - a bomb blast or a truck driving through the crowd every other week. Best to steer clear of all of this stuff as a country unless the peoples are really good and skilled at something. Of course if that was the case they wouldn't be floating around in a boat...

    Middle eat oil rich countries won't even take in Arab refugees from the Syrian war, why would they invite them from Asia? Truth is, the Arab countries don't have an Islamic constitution, like Bangladesh they are secular with some laws which claim to follow Sharia which suits them. Probably just as well if Syria under ISIS or Afghanistan under the Taliban is what complete adherence to Sharia would look like. Then there would be no borders and you could go to whichever country you liked whether in Arabia or Bangladesh.

    Personally I feel this idea that it's the duty of Arab countries to fix this problem is racist in itself. Why do we have a UN if it's not there to look after the interests of the oppressed in the world? Shouldn't the pressure be put on Burma to stop the Rohingyas being evicted from their home of generations rather than rubber stamping the ethnic cleansing by putting blame where it doesn't belong?

    I know facts aren't your strong suit so let me inform you of them. Most of the terrorists who've perpetrated attacks are homegrown and of North African descent not Syrian refugees. It may be true that some of them were radicalised from fighting in Syria or were trained there but these were not refugees.

    2015 Paris attackers - the lead operative was born in Belgium. The vast majority were French and Belgian citizens with two Iraqis.

    2016 Brussels attack - four of them were Belgian-Moroccans and one a Swede.

    2016 Nice attack - Tunisian with a French residency permit.

    2016 Berlin attack - Tunisian.

    2017 Manchester attack - born in Britain to Libyan parents.

    2017 London Bridge attackers - 2 Moroccans and 1 Pakistani.

    2017 Barcelona attackers - all Moroccans.

    As for your bolded remark, well that just shows your sick mentality. If you had your home destroyed, friends and family murdered and neighbourhood barrel bombed with no prospects whatsoever in your country and had no option but to clamber upon boats you wouldn't be making such smug remarks.

    Please dont talk about UN.The UN has registered 14k Rohingyas in India and isnt allowing them to be deported.Though India has told UN that India will deport these 14k refugees.

    This is in addition to the 40000s who are not even registered

    How about your mentality? You only care about the people in the boats because they're Muslim. If they were Christian or Hindu or Jew or myself in the boat it wouldn't even register in your mind.

    At least I'm consistent: Bangladesh is a country of 160 million that could do without endless flooding of more, which would only be to their detriment in the short and long term. Don't care about the religion - that is a non issue.

    First part of your post isn't true.

    As I said, if BD Govt. wasn't willing, a single Burmese bird won't have crossed border. But, officially, no Govt. will say that you keep brutal ethnic cleansing, I'll take care of whatever spoils are left over.

    Niyat is more than suchha, but logistics needs money, not discussion. It's easy to take cheap shots at guts & heart, but that doesn't help much outside blogs. What Bangladesh is doing none of Malaysia or Indonesia did to Cambodian Muslims during Khemer Rouze brutality to Muslims.

    1) I see no answer to those facts I've stated - do you accept you were lying and/or ignorant of the facts when you claimed Syrian refugees are responsible for these recent European terror attacks ?

    Don't make false assertions then dodge the argument when you've been picked up on it.

    2) You've no greater grasp on the facts than you have any insight into my political views.

    I have long criticised the injustices committed by Muslim countries against minorities in their countries, especially Pakistan and anti-Semitism in the Muslim world longer than you've been on this forum so don't reflect your own political cynicism onto me.

    PM Sheikh Hasina seeks UN intervention for swift repatriation of Rohingya refugees

    Some 126,000 new refugees have entered Bangladesh so far, as the influx of Rohingya continues

    Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday urged the United Nations (UN) to aid in the swift repatriation of Rohingya refugees displaced from Myanmar and currently residing in Bangladesh, reports UNB.

    “The UN should act in such a way so that the refugees are repatriated quickly,” the prime minister said during a meeting at her office with outgoing UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative Robert D Watkins.

    The Prime Minister also reiterated calls for the international community to mount pressure on the Myanmar government to stop the driving Rohingyas into Bangladesh, and take back those taking shelter here.

    Praising the Bangladesh government for their humanitarian efforts and acceptance of the refugees, Robert D Watkins expressed his apprehension that the numbers of Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh may rise in the coming days. Over 126,000 new refugees have entered Bangladesh so far.

    The prime minister added that the government prepares a list whenever refugees enter Bangladesh.

    “The government will arrange makeshift shelters for them,” Sheikh Hasina said, informing that Vashanchar island shall be designated for refugee support and assistance.

    Regarding insurgency problems in the Rakhine state, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina questioned where the supply of finance and arms to the insurgents was coming from, requesting the international community inquires into the matter.

    Meanwhile, Robert D Watkins added that the UNHCR has already offered to assist in the identification process of the Myanmar nationals in Bangladesh, which the Prime Minister appreciated. He also stressed the UN secretary general’s personal involvement in dealing with the Rohingya crisis.

    The PM’s Principal Secretary Dr Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury was present during the meeting.

    if those seeking refuge enter india, then yes, india will not turn them down. india has an exceptional record of being helpful to those seeking refuge. but currently these unfortunate individuals are pouring into bangladesh.

    maybe under a resettlement arrangement, india should offer to help them.

    also by your logic, since pakistan was a non-entity prior to 1947, and it was all just one big india, is pakistan not on the hook for settling a third of those seeking refuge?

    almost always immigrants and refuge seekers add to the local economy in several folds more than the resources initially required in their resettlement.

    Pakistan is on the other side, they share the border with Afghanistan, hence they took responsibility for accepting Afghan refugees. It's about logistics more than anything else. If the Rohingyas were reaching Pakistan, then it would be a matter for Pakistan to address, but at the moment they are mostly trying to reach the areas they are local to, which is Bengal - the area the Burmese are claiming they came from initially.

    thus by your logic only those who neighbor the state in distress are tasked with providing assistance to those seeking refuge.

    if that is so, then *all* afghanistanis seeking refuge should be housed in pakistan. and FYI, india has a sizable population of ethnic afghanistanis, but most of them arrived following the fall of the soviet regime.

    i am not quite sure what you are pushing here - india is providing shelter to these refugees, as they have in the past to those fleeing violence in erstwhile east pakistan, and sri lanka. there is a significant number of immigrants seeking refuge in india who arrive from maldives, and of course, afghanistan.

    First I've heard of Afghan refugees in India, but then your description of "sizeable" or "significant" numbers is probably a lot different to what most people have in mind. Pakistan took on 4 million at one point, what sort of figures are you talking about?

    In any case, my view is that all the Asian countries need to take some responsibility to help out refugees from that continent, but obviously there is going to be more pressure on those that share borders with Burma. The best solution would be for the Burmese to stop ethnically cleansing the Rohingyas in my view, but then India's prime minister seems to think Suu Kyi is doing a grand job.

    India houses refugees from Pakistan,Afghanistan,Bangladesh,Sri Lanka,Tibet so we have enough refugees.

    Burma should stop killing innocent people.India isnt killing the Rohingyas, India has nothing to do with their killing either.India has normal diplomatic relations with Burma and Suu Kyi has been praised by various leaders throughout for her role in democracy and Modi repeated it. India isnt going to poke its nose in Myanmar just because posters on PP will like that.

    agree. this is a pan south asian issue and must be addressed through an effort that is a partnership of all south asian states. however, the refugees are presently in bangladesh. they are there since the terrain along the burma and india border is not as easily traversed as that along the border between burma and bangladesh.

    the first need of the hour is to not turn them away.

    the second would be find a home for them, with a large number settling in india as india being the largest and most powerful economy in the region can best absorb them.

    and finally, finding a diplomatic solution to resolving the issue internally in burma.

    however, you do need to pause and stop blaming india as we are still on stage 1.

    Its your view. Do you know the number of refugees we have?The population of India is 1.25bn and we cannot afford to take in foreigners when every bit of our resources are to be used for Indians.

    There are millions of illegal immigrants living in India. Govt estimates range from 10 to 20mn.

    My sensitivities lie with Indians.

    Myanmar army is a big Chinese ally. Only way to stop this is to through Chinese, which none of the Pakistanies here will acknowledge. CHina, if it wants, can stop the genocide. But it will not do so..

    CNN reporting the same now. No surprise Modi is blaming the Muslims in Burma as he blames them in India. This may be Modi's strategy of replacing whatever Chinese influence is in Burma and is especially useful since the Chinese don't have a stake in the Burma-Rohingya conflict.

    As everyone knew, Modi's initial statement praising Suui Kyi was indeed a complement for her support of murder, rape and torture. Not surprising as both leaders use the excuse of terrorism to target populations.

    Refugees bring in an economic crisis.

    Sure you could take in a certain amount, but your country also needs to be economically strong aswell.

    Bangladesh, pakistan are third world countries. We already have enough problems.

    That doesn't have anything to do with the Rohingya issue though.

    Modi was talking about the Rohingya. He mentioned an attack on the Burmese security forces which the Rohingya insurgents have claimed. Thats also what the CNN article was covering. Any other issue he may or may not have spoken to with the Suu Kyi or whatever her name is doesn't involve the Rohingya.

    But is it really surprising that Modi would take that position on the Rohingya? I mean would it be shocking if we discovered some documents in which Hitler had bad things to say about Jews? Its par for the course, no?

    The geopolitics of the world keeps on changing, with a new humanitarian crisis erupting every now and then. Currently, the whole world is talking about just one thing, the ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

    One of the finest non-political people in Pakistan, Malik Riaz Hussain, the Chairman of Bahria Town, has done something that the country should be extremely proud of, yet again. According to reports, Malik Riaz has pledged Rs. 1 Billion for the Rohingya Muslims of Burma, along with providing them with land accommodation.

    In a TV interview, Malik Riaz said: “Have we become so selfish that we cannot help our brother Muslims in Myanmar? The Europeans have openly welcomed Muslims from all over the world into their countries, can we not accommodate 1 million Rohingya Muslims in our country?”

    “I am willing to donate Rs. 1 Billion along with land accommodation to help the Rohingya Muslims resettle in Pakistan. The government and establishment need to work together and help bring the Rohingya Muslims to Pakistan, and this will help us as a nation. Allah will help us by helping others!”

    “We are so passionate about Kashmir, then why not about Burma? We need to stand our own feet before the world declares us as terrorists and we end up as the Burmese Muslims. We need to take the initiative ourselves and support the Rohingya Muslims by giving them financial assistance and land to live,” he further added.

    Rohingya Muslims in Burma are currently going through the worst humanitarian crisis, with the Burmese Army slaughtering and massacring any Rohingya they see. When these poor souls tried to enter Bangladesh through Myanmar’s borders, they were sent back by the Bangladesh Army on Sheikh Hasina’s orders.

    On the other hand, entertainment powerhouses such as Waqar Zaka and Amir Liaquat have also announced to go to Burma to help the Rohingya Muslims. Pakistan needs to take steps in the right directions to help their Muslim brothers, as it was decided in the Objective Resolution of 1949, by Liaquat Ali Khan, that the country would help Muslims all around the globe.


    With Malik Riaz taking the first steps, it would be interesting to see what follows, how the government and establishment would react to such an offer. One issue that Pakistan might face is that Myanmar is an ally of China, and to go against the Burmese would not be taken too well by the Chinese. However, we laud the step Malik Riaz has taken.

    It's not up to him to resettle people in Pakistan....

    If he wants, he should pay for them to settle in Bangladesh where they belong.

    Massive protests in Pakistan against atrocities on Rohingyas

    Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Pakistan's major cities today to condemn a crackdown on Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, with many carrying placards stating "Shame on Aung San Suu Kyi".

    The largely peaceful rallies were spearheaded by Islamist party Jamat-e-Islami (JI), but other groups including mainstream political parties joined in.

    Leaders including JI chief Siraj ul Haq called for an end to the "genocide" of the Rohingya and for Pakistan to break off relations with the government in Myanmar.

    Pakistan has previously expressed "deep anguish" at the violence.
    Many protesters also slammed Suu Kyi, Myanmar's de facto leader, over her silence. The Nobel Peace Prize winner has faced criticism for failing to condemn the violence, leaving her global reputation in tatters.

    A senior United Nations representative told AFP Friday that more than 1,000 people may already have been killed in the military-led crackdown, which has seen 270,000 mostly Rohingya civilians flee to Bangladesh in the last two weeks alone.

    Others have died trying to flee the fighting in Rakhine state, where witnesses say entire villages have been burned since Rohingya militants launched a series of coordinated attacks on August 25, prompting the crackdown.

    In Pakistan's southern port city of Karachi, which hosts one of the largest Rohingya populations outside of Myanmar, more than 2,000 people demonstrated outside the Karachi Press Club.

    "If our leader gives the call, we will lay down our lives for the Burmese Muslims," one protester, Maulana Ahmed, told AFP.

    In the capital Islamabad a similarly sized crowd gathered at the entrance to the diplomatic enclave, inside which the Myanmar embassy is situated.

    Many carried placards reading: "Why are these Muslims being killed? What is their crime?" as chants of "Allahu Akbar", or "God is the Greatest", reverberated.

    There were also some sporadic calls for "jihad", or holy war.

    Security forces with protective riot gear stood nearby and containers blocked off access to the enclave, with some small scuffles.

    But police appeared relaxed as the demonstrators, some armed with batons, showed no signs of trying to go further into the diplomatic area.

    Protests were also held in deeply religious neighbouring Afghanistan Friday.
    Hundreds of placard-waving men marched in the eastern city of Jalalabad in support of the Rohingya while smaller demonstrations were held in the capital Kabul, including one outside the compound of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, and other cities.

    Hope Pakistanis can make a difference to the happenings in Burma at the moment.

    They've now taken in 270,000 in 2 weeks.

    About 270,000 Rohingya Muslims have sought shelter in Bangladesh since violence erupted in Myanmar two weeks ago, the UN says.
    A spokeswoman said the jump - up from 164,000 on Thursday - was because new pockets of people had been found.

    Meh, these people would have a lot more credibility if they weren't actively complicit in the same crimes at home that they're decrying abroad. One of the biggest rallies was taken out by ASWJ whose militant wing, Lashkar e Jhangvi, has killed tens of thousands of Pakistani (only terrorist organization in Pakistan with a body count that rivals TTP's) civilians whom they targeted specifically for their sect. Jamat e Islami, who took out the biggest rally, are the chief architects of the supremely intolerant Pakistan we know and (begrudgingly) love today. While the message is on point - what's going on there is nothing short of a crime against humanity comparable to Bosnia or Rwanda - the people making the most noise over it are guilty of the same crime they're protesting against which highlights nothing except for their own hypocrisy.

    I think the OIC needs to approach the UN to discuss methods of distributing refugees among other Muslim countries. It's wrong on many counts, as it effectively is rubber stamping ethnic cleansing, but what are the alternatives? Left to it's own devices the UN will just stand by and watch as they did in Bosnia.

    and why do they belong in Bangladesh? They have been living in Burma since the 15th century. The only commonality they have with Bangladeshis is that the region was ruled by the same Bengal Muslim Sultanate about 600 years ago.

    That region also includes Bengal (both BD and West Bengal), Assam, Bihar, Tripura, Orrissa. In your logic, any Assamese or Biharis are also Bengalis.

    We now have 2 million plus Rohingya refugees in the country. In the recent week alone, took in 700k. People from other parts of BD have rushed to help them. A lot of zakat money has gone to them. Local NGOs are assisting them as well.

    But these are not enough to address ethnic cleansing. We are doing the best as we can but unless Myanmar stops the genocide, these will get even worse.

    At least this time the intl community has put some pressure. Of course the Rakhine/Myanmar genocide is continuing unabated, but this time Bangladesh government isn't alone and has also been convinced by Turkey and others to do more to help.

    All credit to Sheikh Hasina and the Bangladeshis - even developed and wealthy nations would not accept half a million+ refugees in a handful of weeks yet Bangladesh have. They are putting some of their wealthier neighbours to shame.

    So what's with Hasina Wajid's change of heart and total 180 degree turn on refugees? Less that 3-4 months ago she was adamant about there being no place for them in Bangladesh

    Yes the Arab countries which did not take in Syrians and Iraqis will accept people who they don't consider 'pure Muslims' in the first place
