It is of the utmost importance that the Burmese mass murderers that have perpetrated such horrific crimes against innocent Rohingya be brought to justice and given exemplary punishment.
The Rohingyas’ suffering is heartbreaking. In the absence of concerted international action, the Myanmar regime has gotten away with ethnic cleansing and genocide.
The Rohingya Muslims join a long list of other people suffering oppression and genocide. Their plight is made worse by the fact that there is little to be gained politically by offering them support. The world, including many in the Muslim world, have become cynical.
As part of a systematic policy, ‘peaceful’ Buddhists in Myanmar are exterminating the Rohingya Muslims but beyond verbal condemnation, few practical steps have been taken by the world to stop the genocide.

Not the most civilized people, the Myanmar army and Buddhist vigilantes are involved in genocide of Rohingya Muslims. Nearly 90,000 have been forced to flee to neighboring Bangladesh since August 25.
Suddenly in September this year, Burma found itself centre-stage in the western media, despite the fact that reports from the country are vague and not in accordance with generally-used definitions of news authenticity. Three months after reports about a “bloodbath” and “massive protests” in the capital, it now seems that the status quo in Burma is going to survive. The demonstrations reported around the world, most of which are being coordinated by western NGOs and human-rights activists, appear to have changed nothing at all.
Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of Burma’s National League for Democracy, which won the elections annulled by the military junta in 1990, was released unconditionally after years of periods of shortlived and uncertain freedom...
Although human rights activists groups have spoken out against the injustices by Burma’s military regime , SLORC (State Law and Order Restoration Council), little awareness of the brutalities against Burmese Muslims have concerned the Muslim world.
