Malaysia to Summon Myanmar’s Envoy over Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingya

By M.S. Anwar | November 26, 2016

Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia will summon Myanmar’s Ambassador in Kuala Lumpur in the wake of the new wave of violence on the Rohingya minority in Maungdaw district, Arakan (Rakhine) state, according to a press release by Malaysia’s foreign ministry on Friday.

Malaysia condemns the escalating violence against the violence in the northern Rakhine state and calls the Government of Myanmar to take all the necessary actions to address the alleged ethnic cleansing in the northern Rakhine State.  

The Burmese (Myanmar) military have killed more than 500 civilians, arbitrarily arrested more than 1,000 villagers, raped at least 100 women and burnt down more than 3,500 homes displacing at 50,000 people in the pretext of ‘Clearance Operation’ or the Hunt-Down on the alleged militants responsible for October 9 raids on three Border Guard Police (BGP) posts.

As the situation stands today, the military assaults on the civilians seem never ending and the casualties are alarmingly on the rise triggering mass exodus of Rohingya refugees to the neighboring countries.

Hundreds of people demonstrated against the increasing violence on the Rohingya in front of the Myanmar’s embassies across ASEAN’s major cities, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok on Friday (November 25).
