Intl. community ignoring ethnic cleansing in Myanmar: Pundit

The international community’s ignorance of the ongoing genocide and ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Myanmar is tarnishing the UN’s credibility, says a commentator.

Massoud Shadjareh, head of the Islamic Human Rights Commission, told Press TV on Monday that “genocide and ethnic cleansing” were taking place in Myanmar and such crimes were “being ignored by [the] international community,” so, there was no point in sending the oppressed Rohingya Muslims back to their homes.

“There is really no legitimacy left for the UN and international courts if such [massacre] would be allowed to continue after all these years and nothing would be done about it,” Shadjareh argued.
