Will the world remain silent on massacres and ethnic cleansing in Burma?

Rohingya refugees walk on the muddy path after crossing the Bangladesh Myanmar border in Teknaf Bangladesh

Erdo─čan said the rise in human rights violations against Rohingya Muslims created deep concerns in the world, particularly among Muslim countries, and that Turkey condemned both terror attacks and military operations targeting civilians, the Turkish presidency informed the media on September 5.

Indonesia has the world's largest population of Muslims and there have been a number of anti-Myanmar protests in Jakarta and the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur over the treatment of Buddhist-majority Myanmar's roughly 1.1 million Rohingyas.

Yesterday, the office of Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi said the military had fought 90 separate clashes with Rohingya militants since the ambushes.

Satellite images have revealed an entire village in Myanmar burned to the ground amid the country's ongoing violence that erupted in August.

The organisation said it would transfer its resources instead to help Myanmar's Rohingya Muslim minority following a recent appeal by Pope Francis for their protection.

Almost 90,000 Rohingya refugees escape Myanmar.

Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai joined the chorus on September 4, called on her fellow laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, the civil leader of Burma, to condemn the violence.

Myanmar's army has said almost 400 people have died in the fighting that ensued, including 370 Rohingya militants.

Earlier this year, the commission, led by former United Nations chief Kofi Annan, had urged Myanmar's government to reconsider a failed programme to verify Rohingya for Myanmar citizenship and to remove restrictions on freedom of movement. Much of Bangladesh is already trying to cope with the humanitarian disaster that is monsoon generated, and the refugees from Rakhine merely add to the complexity.

"Over the last several years, I have repeatedly condemned this tragic and shameful treatment", Yousafzai said in a tweet on Monday. "More than 6,000 Rohingya houses were set ablaze", he said. "We have to keep our children safe from being sick", said Amena Begum, a newly arrived mother of five. The Denmark-based European Rohingya Council (ERC) reported that between 2,000 and 3,000 Muslims were killed in Rakhine. "Once again, violence, this humanitarian crisis has to stop immediately", Indonesian President Joko Widodo told reporters on Sunday as he announced Retno's mission there.

"Most have walked for days from their villages - hiding in jungles, crossing mountains and rivers with what they could salvage from their homes", the agency said in a statement.
