|Rohingyas: hounded by the Burmese state|
The international community is duly shocked by the conduct of the Burmese government towards the Rohingyas, the Muslim minority community who live along the border with Bangladesh. The irony of a Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi being complicit hasn’t failed to evoke anger and disgust in the wider social media and there is now a vociferous demand for a revocation of her award. The tragedy with the Rohingya community seems to be getting worse as neither of the two neighbouring countries Bangladesh nor India is willing to let them in as refugees. There have been a series of reports of raids conducted by the Myanmar army on the remotest of Rohingya villages, clearly aiming to destroy them physically and uproot them without suggesting any alternative.
