MAPIM CALLS ON ASEAN TO PREVAIL UPON MYANMAR

The Malaysian Consultation Council of Islamic Societies (MAPIM) calls strongly on the ASEAN Secretariate to initiate a urgent meeting to prevail upon the Myanmar government to resolve the plight of the Myanmar within the framework of the UN international human rights convention .

ASEAN should be the logical convening regional agency to plan for a roadmap to reinstate the citizenry right of the Rohingya.

We regret that ASEAN has not been seeing as playing an effective role to alleviate the plight of the Rohingya. The secretary general office of the ASEAN should shoulder the responsibility of pursuing for a continuous diplomatic and political solution to the Arakan conflict.

Though the conflict is perceived as an etnic clash , religous elements is strongly felt in the tension as the Rohingya Muslims have been persecuted and most the heavily victimized by the Rakhine Buddhist.

Making the situation worst is the Myanmar governmental backing in the attrocities against the Rohingya , further escalated by the Myanmar President Thein Sein announced policy of herding the remaining 800,000 Rohingya in a mass camp to be handled by the UNHCR or deporting them to a third country.

ASEAN cannot play a marginal role since the reality of the conflict is that the tension is having a geo-political impact at the regional level.

We are urging that ASEAN convene a special meeting of ASEAN plus 3 members focussing on the Rohingya predicament. The policy adopted by Myanmar is tantamount to declaring an open ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya.

ASEAN cannot stand idle with this inhuman policy . This is an announcement that is directly contravenes the legal human rights framework.

We abhore the continuos persecution against the Rohingya merely on a disputed argument that the Rohingyas are immigrants from Bangladesh . We reject and object adamantly the policy of discrimination and oppression against the Rohingyas.

We are stating our concern to ensure for the continued regional peaceful and harmonious political engagements within the ASEAN community.

Not active to find a permanent solution to the Rohingya on top of the ongoing tensions in south Thailand and Mindanuao , Phillipines will have a destructive impact on the regional political stability .

We agree that the ultimate solution is to re-install the citizenry of the Rohingya. This solution is actually a natural solution since the practice of awarding citizenship to those people  born in a country will be be accepted as legal citizens is a practice in most nations.

MAPIM regrets that members of the ASEAN  are more interested in the investment opportunities now opened in Myanmar. This would convey a wrong message to Myanmar that while they can continue a suppressive policy against the Rohingya , investments are still coming in.

Unless the ASEAN community is serious in resolving the decades of injustice suffered by the Rohingya ,  all conferences , declaration and  resolutions , will not be of any use.

ASEAN must address and engage directly with the Myanmar government and stop the attrocities once and for all.
