Experts for strengthening diplomatic pressure

Kazi Zahidul Hasan :
International relationship and security experts have urged the Bangladesh government to raise the issue of organized persecution and killing of Rohingyas to international forums immediately to strengthen pressure on Myanmar authorities.
They also insisted for stronger diplomatic efforts by Bangladesh for securing a permanent solution over the Rohingya crisis, as it has already become a perennial problem for the country.
 "Bangladesh should immediate raise the Rohingya issue to the UN bodies and global rights watchdogs to exert pressure on Myanmar. It should also seek support from India and China in this regard," Prof Delwar Hossain, who teaches International Relationship at the University of Dhaka, told The New Nation on Thursday.
Prof Delwar Hossain said Bangladesh is dealing the issue softly though it has become a perennial problem for the country. "So far, Bangladesh is trying to address the problem on adhoc basis. It should take a firm stance to resolve the issue permanently. It must engage the global community to come out the solution," he added.
He further said if Bangladesh fails to secure a permanent solution over the crisis, it could pose a big
threat to its internal security. Besides, it would also put an immense burden for the country.
Expressing grave concern over the deteriorating situation in Rakhine State, Prof Delwar said the violence would leave a far-reaching impact on Myanmar's peace and the regional countries may bear the brunt of it to some extent in future.
 "Bangladesh should immediately raise the issue to the UN seeking its intervention to address the systematic persecution on Muslim Rohingyas and recurrent violence in Rakhine State," Dr A.K. Abdul Momen, former Bangladesh Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN, told the New Nation.
He said Bangladesh should also seek global help for the protection of ethic minority communities in Myanmar and to stop excessive military action on Rohingya Muslims that led them to flee to Bangladesh from Myanmar.
When asked, the former Bangladesh envoy said, the global community, including the western world, still remains tight-lipped about the atrocities on the Rohingyas in Rakhine State by the Myanmar authorities.
Saddened by their silence, Momen said, "We expect strong global intervention to respond to the plights of Rohingyas. They should put pressure on Myanmar authorities to stop ongoing persecution of the Rohingyas immediately.
He said if the global community fails to address the human rights concerns in Myanmar, the northern Rakhine state may provide fertile ground for radicalization posing a serious security threat to Myanmar and neighbouring nations as well.
 "Bangladesh has already given shelter to huge number of Rohingya refugees on humanitarian ground. Now it is extending shelter to huge number of new arrivals fleeing in the wake of renewed military crackdown in the Rakhine State.  The fresh influx is not only putting an additional burden for Bangladesh but also creating various types of security risks for the country," Major General (Retd) Abdur Rashid, a security analyst, told The New Nation yesterday.
 "Bangladesh needs to intensify its diplomatic efforts immediately to gain the global support in addressing the Rohingya crisis permanently," he said, adding, "If not the crisis is resolved, it might put Bangladesh in multidimensional security risks".
He believed that India and China could play a crucial role to put pressure on Myanmar to resolve the crisis.
Experts also insisted for a stronger involvement of the United States in stopping the ongoing military crackdown on the Muslim Rohingyas in the Rakhine State.
