INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Muhammadiyah Central Executive asked the Government of the Republic of Indonesia to consider providing the area for refugees from the Rohingyas.

Chairman of PP Muhammadiyah Bahtiar Effendi, said the effort is considered to help Rohingya ethnic who are now being persecuted by the government of Myanmar.

To note, several decades ago the government of Indonesia had done that to the refugees of Vietnam War by providing the area of ​​Galang Island, Batam as a place to accommodate the refugees.

"We also ask the government to evaluate the diplomatic policy that has been applied to Myanmar since it has not been proven to stop Myanmar from doing Genocide practices against Rohingyas," Bahtiar said in a press release on Sunday (3/9/2017).

Bahtiar said the Myanmar crisis if left alone could threaten the stability of security in Southeast Asia because it will foster resistance against Myanmar, human trafficking and illegal immigrants that could flood the region.

PP Muhammadiyah also asked ASEAN to suppress Myanmar among others through consideration of freezing Myanmar membership of ASEAN.

Due to the large number of casualties, ASEAN is expected not to put forward the principle of non-intervention and replace it by taking responsibility in solving this crisis.

Human rights activists around the world are also being asked to take part in observing the Rohingyas crisis.

"In this case, PP Muhammadiyah is willing to lead to raise aid and support for Rohingyas," he said.

PP Muhammadiyah also urged the International Criminal Court to prosecute the parties responsible in this case.

Nobel prize committee was asked to revoke the Nobel prize for Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi because instead of reconcile even worsen the situation.

The United Nations is also being asked to intervene given Myanmar has no goodwill in resolving the conflict. To Bangladesh, PP Muhammadiyah also asked the country to open the border for humanitarian reasons.

"The United Nations calls Rohingyas the most oppressed ethnicity on earth, they are rejected in Myanmar and oppressed in Bangladesh, because of the uncertainty of this identity, their access to education, health and decent shelter is limited," he said.

Based on the monitoring of PP Muhammadiyah in the last 3,000 ethnic Rohingyas fled to the border of Bangladesh to avoid the military brutality of Myanmar. The number of casualties reached 800 good people from women and children.
