Where is justice towards the people of Rohingyas? Where?

The unheard cries of the Rohingyas people!!!! Does the media care?

 

What!!! Nobody is hearing their cries!! Nobody sees their sufferings!!! Where are those who are militating for peace and justice?

New York Times journalist Thomas Fuller said the migrants pleaded desperately as he and other journalists approached the boat, crying:

“Please help us! I have no water! Please give me water!”

he migrants have been kept alive by food and water passed to them from fishing boats.

Reports say they have been forced to drink their own urine in a bid to survive.

The passengers said they had been onboard the boat for three months. They said 10 passengers who died on the voyage had been thrown overboard.

Thai authorities refused to grant permission for the boat to land. Regional police official Major General Puttichat Akhachan told Reuters: “We declined them entry to the country but we gave them food and water to adhere to our human rights obligations.”

Denied citizenship by national law, Myanmar’s Rohingya are effectively stateless. They have limited access to education or adequate health care and cannot move around freely. They have been attacked by the military and chased from their homes and land by extremist Buddhist mobs in a country that regards them as illegal settlers.
