IHH urges Arakan to give emergency help

The IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation has provided emergency food aid to Arakan, where the conflict has resurfaced.

In the Southeast Asian country Myanmar, conflicts in the Arakanese region, where Muslims are the majority, resumed with the killing of 10 police officers. The Myanmar government and the gangs, who held the Rohingya Muslims responsible for the death of the police, went on hunting for people in the region. Rohingyas, who has escaped from the massacre of thousands of people and tortured tens of thousands of people, is turned over by the Bangladeshi police at the border.

Balance of events

More than 1,500 people have been killed in Myanmar in the last 10 days. Most of the killed were women and children. Some 2,000 to 3,000 people injured in the region. In Myanmar more than 800 houses, mosques, Quran courses, madrasa, schools and shops were burned in 10 days and nearly 60 villages were evacuated. Although the Bangladesh government has tried to prevent refugee entry, more than thirty thousand Muslims have entered Bangladesh illegally in the past few days. Approximately eighty thousand Muslims are trying to survive in mountainous regions because they can not cross the border.

History of events

According to United Nations reports, Rohingya Muslims are one of the most oppressed, persecuted ethnic groups in the world.

Myanmar government's ignorance policies and the attacks of Buddhist gangs are aimed at erasing Muslims from these fertile lands. Of the Rohingya Muslims with a total population of 3.5 million, only 800 thousands of their homeland can live in Arakan. The rest are refugees in different countries.

Arakanic Muslims, who have been living under pressure and violence for about 250 years, have been slaughtered many times in different histories. The massacre in Minbya town in 1942 is one of them.  That year, Buddhist gangs slaughtered Muslims with their spears, even though they were horribly female children. The gangs that brutally killed women after they raped did not plunder the region after the massacre. At least 150,000 Arakanese Muslims were massacred during the attacks that spread to the whole Arakan in a short period and lasted for about 40 days, The villagers were plundered and plundered. Similar events were repeated many times later. Similar Buddhist attacks took place in June 2012 and October 2016 and thousands of Muslims were killed again.
