Mass graves have been found in compounds where they were held in captivity, brutalised and raped, with no where to go and with the countries in the region, unconcerned. They are Muslims and yet the vaunted brotherhood, compassion and care that are the hallmark of Islam is sadly missing in the largest Muslim nation in the world, Indonesia and the majority Muslim nation of Malaysia. The same is true for the Buddhists in Myanmar and Thailand.
Shame on these countries. Shame on the Christian world that is more concerned with the resources of Myanmar and thus do not want to antagonise the "warlords" who govern there, with their claims of being democratic and no longer the autocratic thugs. Even the voice of Aung San Suu Kyi, who for years campaigned for human rights for her " Burmese" people has not been heard. Shame.
The Rohingyas have lived in Burma/Myanmar for generations but were never accorded citizenship and had few, if any rights. They were isolated and forgotten, trying to eke out a living under very harsh conditions. They have suffered at the hands of the locals and the ruling military, who are an insult to the name and teachings of the Buddha. Where is the compassion? Where is the fellowship and where is the humanity?
It is time to end this misery; this suffering. Countries in the region have an obligation, whether Muslim, Buddhist or Hindus or Christian to help these long-suffering people.
