Rohingyas genocide, clash of civilisations

DURING past few days the most potent images and videos of blood rivers, beheaded children, dead bodies lying on streets and burning people alive have brought a new debate onto the issue of Rohingya Muslims. This is not the first time that Rohingyas have to face violence and brutality, until now thousands of Muslims have become the victim of this ‘slow-burning genocide’ in Myanmar.
Myanmar otherwise known as Burma was one among 48 states that voted for the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948, states that “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status”. Even, Article 5 of the UDHR states that “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”
Unsurprisingly, Human Right Organizations, Amnesty International, Western Powers and international media groups like the BBC and CNN are quite upon the violation of Universal Declaration of Human Rights over this genocide that has no parallel in the world........
