Stop anti-Muslim violence in Burma, UN says

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Myanmar told to stop Muslim attacks

Thursday 11 July 2013

UN secretary-general Ban Ki Moon warned Myanmar on Wednesday that it must end Buddhist attacks on minority Muslims and sort out their citizenship.

Sectarian violence against Rohingya Muslims in the mainly Buddhist nation has killed hundreds in the past year and uprooted about 140,000 others.

Mr Ban urged officials “to take necessary steps to address the legitimate grievances of minority communities.”

Myanmar passed a citizenship law in 1982 that recognises eight races and 130 minority groups as citizens of the country but ignored its 800,000 Rohingyas.

Earlier this year Myanmar passed a law limiting Rohingyas in two townships to having two children – a law that does not apply to Buddhists.

Nobel peace prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi criticised the law but has had little else to say about Rohingya rights.
