Myanmar treatment of Rohingya ‘textbook ethnic cleansing’, says UN
September 12, 201719
Myanmar’s treatment of its Muslim Rohingya minority appears to be a “textbook example” of ethnic cleansing, the top United Nations human rights official has said.
More than 310,000 people have fled to Bangladesh in recent weeks, with more trapped on the border, amid reports of the burning of villages and extrajudicial killings.
Aung San Suu Kyi fails to mention the Rohingya, who are not a recognised ethnic group in Myanmar, but listed other affected communities in Rakhine state.
Rohingya people have been systematically persecuted for decades by the Burmese government, which, contrary to historical evidence, regards them as illegal migrants from Bangladesh and restricts their citizenship rights and access to government services.
