Rohingya Muslims are being wiped off Myanmar's map

The country has deployed a serious crisis that urgently needs attention.

"India is also known as Hindustan, the land of the Hindus", said Niranjan Rudra, sitting on a plastic sheet in the chicken farm flanked by his wife, who sported a large vermilion red dot on her forehead typical of married Hindu women.

Japanese foreign minister Taro Kono made the comment during a meeting with his Bangladesh counterpart AH Mahmood Ali in NY on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, the foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

"A specialised team from the centre will be heading to Bangladesh within the coming few hours to make an assessment of the condition of Rohingya refugees there and to find out what are the essential requirements that are to be made available to them urgently, as well as to extend assistance in terms of relief, humanitarian help and shelter", he said, according to Saudi Press Agency.

She said: "The military action against them must stop".

Hasina mentioned that all forcibly displaced Rohingyas must be able to return to their homeland inMyanmarin safety, security and dignity, and the recommendations of the Kofi Annan Commission will have to be implemented immediately and unconditionally in its entirety.

"India is also pressurising Myanmar to take back the Rohingyas refugees, sort out the issues, address their concerns and restore normalcy", he said.

The prime minister mentioned that now the Muslim brothers and sisters in Myanmar face "ethnic cleansing" and the ongoing military operations by the Myanmar authorities have created havoc in the Rakhine State.

Trouble started early on 25 August when hundreds of Rohinyga militants backed by outside elements staged coordinated attacks on 30 police posts in Myanmar's westernmost state of Rakhine, killing at least 12 police personnel.

"It is an unbearable human catastrophe".

Bangladesh already houses at least 300,000 Rohingya in camps near the border.

Accusing New Delhi of looking at the issue from a religious angle, he said while amending the Foreigners Act in 2015, it gave certain exemptions to Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis, Christians and Jains arriving from Pakistan and Bangladesh but the word Muslim was not included.

"Myanmaris forcibly driving out the Rohingya Muslims through a planned and organised process".

"If they need food, we are ready to send it", he said.

Hasina said Bangladesh has continued its diplomatic efforts to repatriate all the Rohingyas to their homeland.
