Every sane and sensible human being is alarmed and distressed knowing the massacre going on with Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. The news got more attention when few thousands of displaced Rohingya people were out in the Sea in search of rescue from the neighboring countries. But dejectedly speaking; not much has been done to stop this developing humanitarian crisis.
Global community has not responded very well to this issue which raises questions about the wrathful world affairs. The King of this world and noble prize winner, USPresident Barrack Obama’s concrete action is missing out of the equation while Myanmar Butchers takes us to the doorsteps of annihilation and social squat. I guess, noble peace awards have no worth if such events keep on happening all the time. My heart shouts out loud each day “Where are thousands of people who stood up with Charlie Hebdo as #IamCharlie despite of disrespectful acts from that newspaper; will they ever raise their voices against Myanmar tragedy as #IamHuman?”
Rasullullah giving an example of Muslim unity said:
“The Muslim Ummah is like one body. If the eye is in pain then the whole body is in pain and if the head is in pain then the whole body is in pain”
Is there any pain today as Myanmar brothers face oppressors? In previous instances, we have seen brutal exterminations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine etc by Super Powers like US, Israel and NATO forces. The Muslim world tried to save their face by saying “We would have gone to stone ages if we had opposed their campaigns” and all like that. But Myanmar is a very small and less equipped country and being not able to stop dismay of our brothers is beyond comprehension. It’s Ironic and Painful to see such state of affairs of Muslim world. They failed in Saudi-Yemen conflict; they are failing again to protect Rohingya Muslims…
Worthy to mention here, Turkey has won hearts by sending their Naval ships to rescue Rohingya Muslims by rising to the call of duty. Turkish leadership deserves Salutes from all corners. Nevertheless, a United Muslim effort in such issues is still awaited…
Pakistan is already involved in many fronts and if one makes this an argument for staying back from this issue will really not be fair as a true Muslim and a real Pakistani. We can still create a Diplomatic pressure group with the help our brotherly countries. Nobody can deny the fundamental rights of human beings and this fact must be used to move the case of deprived Muslims of Myanmar. Remember Prophet (S.A.W) said:
“Whoever of you sees an evil must then change it with his hand. If he is not able to do so, then [he must change it ] with his tongue. And if he is not able to do so, then [he must change it] with his heart. And that is the slightest [effect of] faith.” (Recorded in Muslim)
We can keep trying our level best doing something at our levels to at least achieve 2ndOr 3rd Degree of faith if not the 1st…
One of my senior acquaintance suspects that apart from General massacre of Rohingya Muslims, the dead and deprived could have been used in the un-authorized trade of Human body parts. He says this after observing the body Cuts and Wounds visible in the pictures on web. The responsible and relevant people must investigate this aspect as regards to their professional and moral responsibility.
Role of electronic and print media has been terrifying while Rohingya face desperate and uncertain circumstances. The issue has not been given due respect by world and local Pakistani Media. We have time to show teasers of upcoming movies, we have time to show fights between useless politicians but we do not have time to analyzeMyanmar happenings. Is it because Rohingya does not have proper clothes on their weak bodies, is it because they are a part of this plot OR are they displaying worst professional negligence of all times. Only time will tell that… Ideally, media must act responsibly to highlight, analyze and resolve ongoing cruelty. This will surely be the most superior of Jihad in these times and will definitely avoid Regrets and Makafat-e-Amal in future.
Like every other issue, Social media has played a very positive role in highlighting and Myanmar Massacre. Social web platforms keep on knocking the doors of power corridors. This issue could well have been buried if there was nothing like social media today. However, there are hundreds of pictures displaying oppression; but it’s really difficult to fully understand and grasp the insight of this issue due to casual approach of influential stakeholders.
Muhammad Bin Qasim, with less arsenal ; flattened the Sindh right upto Multan upon the call of one kidnapped Muslim lady. Is there any Muhammad Bin Qasim today to help thousands of deprived Muslims in Myanmar? The Opportunity is there; time is passing pleading…Earning Satisfaction OR Regrets; it’s fully our choice!
