Rebel group of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar announces ceasefire

Rebel group of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar announces ceasefire
September 10, 2017

PESHAWAR, 10 September: The Rohingya Muslims rebel group in Myanmar fighting against the government forces has announced one-month ceasefire in hope of ending the crisis.

The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) has also called upon the Myanmar army to stop the fighting to end the crisis in the country. Muslims in the Rakhine state are bearing atrocities of Myanmar army and extremist Buddhists for the last many years, but the latest crisis began on 25 August when a rebel group set fire to a police check post. The Burmese security forces along with extremist Bushiest started a massive crackdown after the attack, killed several Rohingya Muslims and torched their villages. At least 300,000 Rohingya Muslims have migrated to Bangladesh so far in extremely bad condition and they have no food or shelter.

The United Nations says $7.7 billion funds are required on emergency basis to help the Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar.

Meanwhile, Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua summoned Myanmar ambassador to her office and lodged protest over atrocities against Rohingya Muslims. The Foreign Office said Tehmina Janjua asked the Myanmar ambassador to stop atrocities against Muslims and give them their rights.
