Civil society protests against Rohingyas genocide in Myanmar

Erdogan, who said the killings of Rohingya Muslims amounted to "genocide", had previously criticised Muslim countries for remaining silent to the ongoing crisis.

Bangladesh has made two proposals regarding a resolution to the Rohingya crisis.

It released the statement through its Twitter page.

Last October, following attacks on border posts in Maungdaw, Myanmar security forces launched a five-month crackdown in which, according to Rohingya groups, around 400 people were killed.

Most have walked for days and the United Nations says many are sick, exhausted and in desperate need of shelter, food and water. It also called for political support in ensuring that all the Myanmar nationals return to their homes.

On Aug. 25, he said, young men with swords and knives tried to attack the border guard outpost in Aley Than Kyaw but failed.

The U.N. objected to the creation of "camp-like" villages for the Rohingya in April, citing the risk of stoking tensions.

Malaysia will send a humanitarian mission to help refugees seeking shelter at the Bangladesh-Myanmar border, Prime Minister Najib Razak said.

"This does not necessarily reflect fresh arrivals within the past 24 hours but that we have identified more people in different areas that we were not aware of before", she said.

A Myanmar military source told Reuters mines were laid along the border in the 1990s to prevent trespassing and the military had since tried to remove them. Children and women flocked to every stopping vehicle, extending their arms, begging.

The Indian statement came in the backdrop of the continuous exodus of Rohingya Muslims from the Buddhist- majority country in the wake of violence against them.

Shamsun Nahar (left), 60, is a Rohingya widow who fled from Kha Maung Seik village, Myanmar, to Bangladesh alone, ending up at Kutupalang refugee camp at Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh; she's explaining that her 30-year-old son is missing.

The U.N. refugee agency says the number of Rohingya refugees who have fled Myanmar since August 25 is now estimated at roughly 290,000. Terrorists must be eradicated, and Rakhine state, a region of geostrategic significance, can not become a hotbed for terrorist groups to take root and blossom.

The apex court had on September 4 sought to know the stand of the government on a petition challenging the latter's decision to deport illegal Rohingya Muslim immigrants to Myanmar.

The U.N. human rights chief said violence and injustice faced by the ethnic Rohingya minority in Myanmar - where U.N. rights investigators have been barred from entry - "seems a textbook example of ethnic cleansing".

"This act would also be in contradiction with the principle of "Non-Refoulement", which has been widely recognised as a principle of Customary International Law", the plea said, while seeking a direction to the government not to deport them and other members of the community.

Mr Guterres urged both sides to address the underlying dispute rather than continue the spiral of attack and retribution.

Difa-e-Pakistan Council and Jamaat-Ud-Dawa held a demonstration outside Karachi Press Club (KPC) to protest against the brutality and inhuman treatment of Mayanmar forces to the Rohingya Muslims.
