Stop Rohingya Genocide and Ensure Human Rights in Arakan
Deadly attacks on border posts in western Myanmar's Rakhine state broke out, resulting in mass civilian casualties. Later, media reports emerged saying Myanmar security forces used disproportionate force and displaced thousands of Rohingya villagers, destroying homes with mortars and machine guns.

The genocide in Arakan [Rakhine state] should be stopped immediately and those who are involved in the acts of genocide and torture should be brought to justice as soon as possible. Rohingya Muslims are being subjected to systematic violation and derogation by the Myanmar government. Eyewitness testimonies and visual media from Rakhine state show "torture and genocide" in the region is ongoing. We also call on the United Nations, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and all international organizations to stop the genocide and torture in Rakhine state.
In the last three days, members of the Myanmar army have conducted operations on 50 villages and set some of the villages on fire. Around 20,000 Rohingya had been forced to flee into Bangladesh illegally because of border security set up by the Bangladeshi government. UN must act immediately if we do not want the ongoing conflict to descend into a civil war. The current targeted killings are worse than the attacks against the Rohingya in October last year. And while it's imminent that the military tackles any form of insurgency, it must also abide by international human rights laws and protect civilians. But according to reports, the violence has left more than a hundred people dead, hundreds more displaced, villages and properties burnt. And while I write this, we continue to see photographs and video clips of butchered Rohingyas and burning villages. As such, a political solution is imminent and crucial.
We need all UN member states to have the political will to stand united against the killings and displacement of civilians by the Myanmarese military. We hereby also demand the Chair of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee confiscate or take back the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Aung San Suu Kyi. Only those who are serious in keeping the world peace may be awarded such a coveted Prize.
