MBS urges govt to play a role in ending Myanmar ethnic crisis
KUALA LUMPUR: The Selangor Youth Council (MBS) today urged the Malaysian government together with other Asean countries, to play a role in ending the enthic crisis in Myanmar's western Rakhine state.
Its Deputy President Badrul Hisham Badrudin said this action was necessary to ensure that what had Bosnia and Rwanda, where a lot of people had died due to differences in race and religion, did not recur in Myanmar.
"The violence and oppression inflicted on the Muslim Rohingya community in Rakhine is visibly cruel and sad. Even as the Muslim world celebrates Syawal with joy, the Rohingya's are left with little, while living in fear," he said in a statement here today.
Badrul Hisham said the United Nations should also act early and quickly in ensuring safety and security in Rakhine.
The MBS also urged that humanitarian assistance such as food, shelter and medical aid, be rendered quickly to the Rohingyas. -- BERNAMA
