That the Meek May Not Have Died in Vain

As more gruesome civility-rattling details of the plight, of the persecution, of the flight, of the imprisonment, of the torture and of the final demise, of many Rohingya people refugees come to light, the International Community that could have done more for these unfortunate stateless and displaced people, must now be charged with the obligation to ensuring that those killed, may not have died in vain.

The bleak circumstance as to the conditions of many Rohingya people continues to be unearthed by Malaysian officials as forensic experts comb through abandoned camps near the Thailand border, where human traffickers -  preying on the desperation of perhaps the world's most vulnerable minority group, kept the solace-seeking refugees jailed in barbed-wire pens that bear signs of torture and eventual death. Some 139 graves bearing the remains of dead Rohingya people have been discovered so far at one abandoned camp in the thick-jungle between Northern Malaysia and Southern Thailand.

"It is a very sad scene," remarked Malaysian National Police Chief, Khalid Abu Bakar; " I am shocked. We never expected this kind of cruelty," the Associated Press(AP) cited the police chief responding to conditions found at abandoned human trafficking sites in Malaysia.

For many years human trafficking has flourished in the jungles and cities of Southeast Asia. Recent discoveries of mass graves of desperate Rohingya people refugees both in Thailand and in Malaysia, have shed more light on a humanitarian calamity that has abused and killed hundreds of migrants while extorting large sums of money from the relatives of held refugees.

Therefore, given the gravity and the sordid conditions that have brought persecution, torture and death to many Rohingya people, the International Community must now hold Myanmar responsible for the plight of the refugees. It is within Myanmar that the Rohingya - being born there, have been rendered stateless by national law. It is within Myanmar where the Rohingya are persecuted and subjected to apartheid-like dehumanizing conditions within camps. It is within Myanmar where the political, social and religious atmosphere has sought to poison the Rohingya people. 

Thus, the International Community in ensuring that so many meek people did not die in vain, should condemn Myanmar for its practices and seek assurances that protect the equality of all people and the natural right of all men and women to a home.
