Default Why the UN and the champions of human rights silent ? - 07-20-2012, 06:33 PM

Burma has a population 75 million with the Muslim population being just 0.7 million. The Burmese Muslims have been under this affliction after 1962 when the Army usurped the power in Burma. It all started on 3rd June 2012 when 11 innocent Muslims were killed by the Burmese Army and the Buddhist mobs after bringing them down from a bus. A vehement protest was carried out in the Muslim majority province of Arakan, but the Protestants fell victims to the tyranny of the mobs and the army.

Trying to elude capture and an imminent killing; Burmese Muslims thronged to the Bangladeshi border, but all they met was dismay. The Government of Bangladesh refused to offer them asylum.

Over 500 Muslim villages have been incinerated hither-to. Thousands have been exterminated. The persecution of the Burmese Muslims at the hands of the Buddhist mobs is at its full swing. Yet all the human rights organizations have maintained a criminal silence up till now. Has the Muslim world become so callous that they remain undeterred by such genocide?

This is not a new thing or an unprecedented massacre. Muslims have been a subject to such hostility even before. If we go through the
annals of history we come to the very tenable conclusion that Muslims were always on the suffering side. Islam is a religion of peace and
harmony. It doesnít allow its followers to lay-waste any other tenet. This leaves behind a big question mark. Why are the followers
of such a peaceful religion being oppressed from time to time?

The fear stricken faces of the poor Burmese Muslims really cuts one apart. The glimpse of their bruised bodies is a heart rending
spectacle. Where is the UN now? Why isnít the International media highlighting this issue? Why are the competitive authorities of the
Muslim world procrastinating?

Stop killing the Burmese Muslims. JI did a meritorious job by staging rallies against this brutality. The world should
raise a voice in favor of the poor Burmese Muslims at the international forum. The whole Muslim world should join hands to get
the poor Burmese out of their distress and misery.

In lieu of launching into a tirade against the killings, something should be done on the ground. If we donít help out our brothers there then we are equally responsible for their bloodshed. We wonít be able to satisfy our conscience, and the abrasive cries of the Burmese Muslims will keep on pinching us throughout our lives

Keeping the big powers aside. But just look at the role of the human rights commission and other NGOs if a single Christian or a non Muslim is killed in a Muslim country then the whole media and lakhkar of NGOs and human rights commission start pressurising the whole nation and naming the Muslims as fundamentalists and this and that but now when the whole Muslim community is in danger in a country, the whole lot of NGOs and human rights commission is kept quit over this. That is reason I am against these so called NGOs and human rights commisions, they are hypocrites and they are working on an agenda against Muslims.

I think it is not about religion primarily. It is about interests. However, if religious association of the powerful also gets aligned with that of the oppressed and interests as well then religion may also play a role e.g., East Taimur mostly Christians but brutalized by Suharto at the prodding of US until the specter of communism was gone and oil was discovered in East Taimur.

Muslims also do this. No Muslim organization or country esp (in) Pakistan has ever raised a voice against Chinese oppression of Ughur in Xingiang. No Islamist party or group raised a voice when Bangalis were killed by Pakistani military.

There are a number of other cases.

In the end there is one conclusion. Interests reign supreme. And smaller communities should secure their future through realism and clever political and social strategies and tactics instead of unrealistic expectations based on religious association or mercy from the powerful etc..

As I said before, keep the govts and super power aside. Lets us talk about those organisations who feed these govts and vice versa. These organisations like HR commission and other NGOs pressurize govts through media and through means to raise voice against anything happens in their country.
I can give you numerous examples only from Pakistan where NGOs and woman organistan and some other stupid organisations were crying on very small incidents as compared to this one.
But today all of them have kept silent. Even in Pakistan there are so many incidents have taken place and are taking place on which the NGOs have kept silence only because they have no interest in that or they are not getting any benefit from that. I can give you numerous examples of that.
They are pursuing an agenda.

True. Which Islamic party of Pakistan has ever talked of Ughurs plight at the hands of Chinese (because, China is a backer of Pakistan's military) ? We very well know that in 1971, Jumath-i-Islami and other religious organizations sided with Pakistani military in massacring Bangalis. No Muslim country not even Musim brotherhood of Egypt ever mention Baluchis or Ughurs or whatever. And during the Cold War, all people of the book were aligned again USSR.

Well, Jamat e Islami is the only party in Pakistan who raised their voice and protested against this incident in Barma against muslims.
The issue of Muslims in China, so I have the Jamat e Islami has sent their delegations so many times to China to talk to the Chinese officials and the Chinese Muslims, I mean they have played their role.
But again I ask you which NGO or human rights commisiion or any other organisation have talked on this and pressurized the govt.
No, they don't, because they are controled by their boss and they carry some fixed programmed in their skull.
