Key dates in the Rohingya crisis

Kindly Share This Story:

Below are key dates in the Rohingya refugee crisis, which left 6,700 dead in the first month of unrest, according to Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

Some 655,000 members of this stateless Muslim minority have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh since August.

– August 25: army crackdown –
Early on August 25, 2017, hundreds of Rohingya militants staged coordinated attacks on 30 police posts in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, killing at least 12 police.

The Myanmar army hits back with “clearance operations” in Rohingya villages. It says it is trying to flush out insurgents from the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA).

But witnesses tell of Rohingya civilians being massacred in retaliation, with mortars and machine guns fired at villagers fleeing to the Bangladesh border.

The crackdown sparks an exodus from Rohingya villages, which are soon burning so fiercely the flames and smoke are visible from Bangladesh.

– September 5: refugee storm –
Within 11 days of the attacks, more than 120,000 Rohingya have flooded into Bangladesh, overwhelming the handful of ill-equipped refugee camps around Cox’s Bazar.

Many arrive desperate for food and water after walking for more than a week over hills and through dense jungle. Some need urgent treatment for bullet wounds and machete gashes.

Bangladesh already houses at least 300,000 Rohingya in camps near the border. The fresh influx creates a dire shortage of food, clean water and shelter.

– September 19: Suu Kyi breaks silence –
In her first public statement on the crisis, delivered in English, Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi pledges to hold rights violators to account and to resettle some of the Rohingyas who have fled.

She says Myanmar stands ready “at any time” to repatriate refugees in accordance with a “verification” process agreed with Bangladesh in the early 1990s.

In a 30-minute televised speech she offers no concrete solutions to stop what the UN calls “ethnic cleansing” and fails to appease critics around the world.

Inside Myanmar supporters say the leader lacks the power to rein in the army, which ruled the country for nearly half a century and still controls key ministries, including border and defence.

She makes a first visit to the conflict zone on November 2, but makes no statement.

– November 23: repatriation accord –
Bangladesh and Myanmar agree to start repatriating refugees in Bangladesh in two months, without using the word “Rohingya”.

After months of wrangling, the two governments ink a deal in Myanmar’s capital Naypyidaw.

A day later the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says the conditions for a safe and lasting return are not met.

– December 2: Pope asks for ‘forgiveness’ –
Pope Francis meets Rohingya refugees in a visit to Bangladesh, saying: “In the name of all those who have persecuted you, who have harmed you, in the face of the world’s indifference, I ask for your forgiveness.”

The pope refers to the refugees as Rohingya, using the term for the first time on the tour in Bangladesh, having been advised that doing so in Myanmar, which he visited just before, could inflame tensions and endanger Christians.

– December 5: possible ‘genocide’ –
The UN rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein calls for a fresh international investigation into Myanmar’s abuses against its Rohingya minority, warning of possible “elements of genocide”.

The UN has on several occasions denounced “ethnic cleansing” by the Myanmar authorities.

– December 14: 6,700 killed in first month –
According to the NGO Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), at least 6,700 Rohingya Muslims, including 730 children below the age of five, were killed in the first month of the army crackdown.

It stresses that this is a conservative estimate.

Gunshot wounds were the cause of death in 69 percent of the cases, according to the aid organisation.

Another nine percent were reported burned alive inside houses, while five percent died from fatal beatings.

More than half a million Rohingya in Bangladesh get ID cards for first time: UN refugee agency

Issued to all refugees over the age of 12, in camps in southern Bangladesh, the biometric, fraud-proof card is for many, the first time that they have owned an official document that proves their identity.

“Most of these people are stateless and most of these people have not had any form of identification document, so for the vast majority of the Rohingya refugees, this is the first ID, a first proof of identity that they have,” UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) spokesperson Andrej Mahecic told journalists in Geneva.

An estimated 900,000 Rohingya refugees live in crowded settlements in Cox’s Bazar, according to UNHCR, which is working with the Bangladeshi authorities to complete the operation.

More than 740,000 of those in camps fled from neighbouring Myanmar in the last two years amid State-led violence described as tantamount to ethnic cleansing, by the then UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein.

“The point here is first and foremost to protect and safeguard the right of these people to return to the places they came from”, Mr. Mahecic told journalists in Geneva.

The development comes amid ongoing reports of violence between State forces and ethnic separatists in Myanmar and concerns by UN-appointed rights experts and agencies that conditions are not suitable for the safe return of refugees in place such as Rakhine state.

“There are a number of agreements that have been signed both bilaterally and trilaterally in relation to the potential repatriation,” Mr. Mahecic said, in reference to accords signed between the UN, Myanmar and Bangladesh, the aim of which is to create conditions that are suitable for the return of ethnic, predominantly Muslim Rohingya to Rakhine.

He added: “We have made clear all along, that any repatriation needs to be voluntary and it needs to be in line with the international standards.”

On average, 5,000 refugees are registered daily, at seven different sites in Cox’s Bazar.

More than 550 local staff have been recruited, UNHCR said, with the goal of completing the registration process during the last quarter of 2019.

Although the identity cards carry unique biometric data that includes fingerprints and iris scans, Mr. Mahecic stressed that they were not citizenship documents for Myanmar.

“These cards are basically their registration,” he said. “They regulate their stay in Bangladesh. People will need to have obviously a pathway to citizenship, and a different set of identification if and when they return.”

Rohingya Name & Marriage

By M Rafique

Name is unchangeable from the time of naming to the time of death. Most Rohingyas generally keep two names; one is Muslim name and the other is Burmese. Both names don’t process surnames. For every name used whether from Burmese or Arabic language, there is a meaning for each word. For instant, Noor Hakim is a Muslim name in which Noor means Light while Hakim refers to Wise, but Hakim is not a surname.

Calling someone who is older than caller is very sensitive in Rohingya culture. Rohingyas use specific terms for specific age groups and genders. For example; Gera (elder paternal uncle), Sañsa (younger paternal uncle), Mamu (maternal uncle), Bodda (eldest brother), Majja (second elder brother), and so on.

Name remains the same as the original even after the marriage, husband and wife bearing their original names. Traditionally, betrothal is arranged by the Rohingya parents. Once it is time for marriage, Moharna (ornament) is fixed by the parents or guardians of the bride and the groom and it is most essential according Islamic law. It must be given by the groom for the bride. Both the bride and groom must declare their willingness by pronouncing the words “Khawbul Ahsi” (we do agree) in front of at least three witness and the Molvi Shaheeb (religious scholar) who perform the marriage. Divorce rate among the Rohingyas is less than other races of Burma.

The wedding ceremonies are held in receptions as far as possible. The reception diner is usually held by the family of the bride-groom. In special cases called “Salami”, the reception dinner is held at the bride’s home. During the wedding month the relatives of the newly wedded couple use to invite them and are served with at least one meal in consecutive days by each and every household of their relatives which shows their affections for the couple. In almost all Rohingya’s marriage ceremonies, ‘Howlla’ (Group singing) songs and folk-dancing of girls and women are common.
