“And, if by now we fail, therefore, to respond at this vulnerable hour, or if the global community continues to shy away from taking a ‘moral stand’, then, there can be no more justifiable reason for the pursuit of a humane society…!”—beseeches SAIRI Multiversity’s P.I.
By: M. S. Salawal Salah, SAARC-ASEAN Correspondent, New Zealand
The over-arching review-critique of the content within, certainly extends well beyond the addressee – Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi – as the SAIRI’s open letter to Daw Suu Kyi re-echoes the very ‘screams of burnt-alive Rohingya children’. Nonetheless addressed to the State Counselor of Myanmar, the screeched cries of these restless beings, definitely do opt to ask the same to the rest of humanity in a parallel way. It has something to speak to all of us equally as well as to plea before the collective conscience of the world!
“How many thousands of innocent children need more to be burnt ‘alive’ – ruthlessly slaughtered – smashed and beleaguered in the streets—to be termed as ‘ethnic cleansing’….? How many villages are required more to be burnt down to earth—for ‘genocide’ to be characterized….? How many women are needed more to be mass-raped by the Burmese army officials—to be described as ‘systematic persecution’….? How many of the toddlers and the disabled are still sought after, – to be either put to structured arsons, or to be sold and enslaved as ‘dying-alive sex slaves’ or starved to death, if not murdered by the bullets or sold-out to ‘Thai brothels’ – how numerous it has to recur and persist——to categorize all this as ‘racial extermination’….?”
Just to have some instant glimpses of the least surface-sights of what is happening in Rakine region, please do refer to the following:
Quite regretfully, after the recent remarks of Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi on usage of the word ‘ethnic cleansing’ – with the very tapering annotational comment as: “ethnic cleansing is too strong a term to describe what is happening in Rakhine” – a rational ‘being’ has to contemplate again and again after having known the very comments that leave every sane mind simply blank – left with no option to reason anymore!
Viewed academically, or put simply, – one has to think and rethink; over and over again; painfully and plentifully that:
“How many kids are still awaited to be dealt with as ‘farm-animals’– being mercilessly thrusted, kicked and prodded as waste-ruggers – being treated as ‘dogs and puppies’ horrendously and dreadfully looking at their mothers’ faces, being inhumanely tortured, raped and in front of their eyes – viewing the security forces to slit their parents’ throats amidst slaughtering ruthlessly – their bodies being thrashed and ruined in the streets – their fathers’ heads being smashed and beleaguered on the roads— also, at instances, forced to drink their own urine for survival…!— And, still besides all, something ‘over-n-above’ is presumed to be happened to categorize all this as ‘ethnic cleansing’, ‘genocidal persecution’ or ‘systematic racial extermination’….?
“How many instances need more to be waged and circumferenced behind the mask of ‘clearance operations’, Madam, where these long-deprived, ruined, and destitute insolvents would be forced again to drink their own urine to survive—and then the usage of ‘de-humanization’ can be justified as per the very parameters acceptable before the mighty-self of a ‘State Counselor, who, notably, at the same time is a celebrated iconic ‘Nobel Peace Laureate’ as well…?
“Finally, can I dare to ask, with utmost regrets and apology Madam Daw Suu Kyi, by knocking at the door of your innate cores of conscience, if they exist to be there at all, that: “How many sequential chains of state backed nexus-ignited horror outbreaks consisting of the merciless forms and formats of ‘human onslaughts’ still remain necessary to fulfill the requirements to achieve a consensus — upon the usage of such ‘strong terms’ for all what is happening in Myanmar’s Rakhine…?”, deplores uprightly and quite conscience prickingly Professor Qadhi Aurangzeb Hafi, in his open letter to the Burmese de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
“These are the thorny questions that arose from Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s recent maladroit and clumsy statement, as she has reportedly conveyed so blatantly and quite unashamedly, in such an iterant and vagrant manner that becomess sad as well as strange – not only on her own part, but also fetching a far-embarrassing mark on the entire ‘Nobel Laureateship Community’ so far…!”, censures uprightly the SAIRI’s multi-disciplinary P.I. for Asian region, Professor Qadhi Aurangzeb Al Hafi of Pakistan, who currently serves as the UN SDGs oversight assessor of SAIRI Postdoctoral Multiversity for the United Nations SDGs Studies in SAARC-ASEAN regions.

The Content Impressions of the Open Letter to Daw Suu Kyi:
The eye-opening contents of the letter that speak for themselves have been specified, demonstrated and voiced uprightly and quite conscience prickingly by the SAIRI’s multi-disciplinary P.I. for the United Nations SDGs Studies, Professor Qadhi Aurangzeb Al Hafi of Pakistan, in an open letter to the Burmese de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
The open letter, being aired on 04-13-2017, up to now, is about to reach a sum of over 500 signatures of high profiled academicians from reputed universities across the SAARC – ASEAN regions, and is set to be brought forth, throughout Asian academic ivories, in the next phase.
Under the patronage of Justice (R) Dr. S. S. Paru (L. L. D) of Indonesia, SAARC-ASEAN Postdoctoral Academia’s postdocs are envisioned to bring the issue to a more considerate level. The thematic moderator for normative dominion-orbs in Asian region, Dr. M. Akram Chaudhry is expected to extend the open-letter along with the SAIRI’s supplication-plea to the regional academic hemispheres, as well as those of the Middle East.
The United Nations’ Documented Appalling Indexes:
Evidence-based harrowing occurrence-indexes have been documented by the UN in a recent report referring to the satellite images, testimonies and evidential corroborations that altogether substantiate and endorse the above mentioned appalling accounts of ruthlessness and unprecedented inhumaneness, which has been evidently manifested by the Burmese army and the ‘state-structured nexus’ to carry out the sequential chains of mass riots and mob violence. The UN report speaks much more than one can imagine, and unveils the severity of the ‘nature of the violence’, which cannot be, literally thought of, otherwise.
This violence of a nature of its own, then turns to the large-scale massacres based upon the ‘calculated policy of terror’ on a previously horror-struck ethnic minority that is rendered stateless everywhere – caught in a ‘can’t-live–can’t-leave’ situation for decades-long time-frames – enough conceivably, rendered as the most persecuted minority upon our earth!
The Current State of Affairs & The Clumsy Attempt:
It remains worth-noting here, that these stunning remarks of Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi, which have astounded, enough shockingly, the sane minds throughout the world – have just arose out – immediately amidst the juncture of the state- of-affairs, when the UN has recently adopted a resolution by consensus, and set to urgently dispatch a fact finding mission to inquire into the accounts that are plausibly amounting to ‘crimes against humanity’ – and at this point the observable rebuffing to cooperate and abide by the UN resolution coupled with the fact-twisting remarks, quite obviously means for what it could be meant for, and not needs to be further elaborated.
‘Brand-shaping’ of The Pretexts & Twisting of The Facts:
There remain always the options, almost in every circumstantiality, to ‘brand-shape’ certain ‘public actions’ and ‘state reactions’ or reversely; – as per the ‘schema’ that may suit and best serve the whole, or parts of the enormous outlines of the ‘grand-intents’ of the state actors behind, notes Professor Qadhi A Z Al Hafi as a cautioning remark indication, in the prologue-annotation of the ‘Methodical Overview of the Recent Conspiratorial Tendencies’.
The same conspiracy proposition, as indicated and cautioned, is getting almost 100% proved and materialized to be ‘just’ true – at its utmost – as it can ever be – in the case of the grand ‘intelligent-designs’ laid by the ‘Burmese Government-actors’, who with the help of its armed forces, the riot groups and other essential constituents of the ‘nexus’ terrains along the ever-extending military controlled stadia, have used to use the ‘brand-shaping’ tactics – for serving the purposes beneath; frequently ‘twisting-the-facts’ and ‘changing-the-pretexts’ – the ‘bi-faceted’ policy-stratagem that Burmese establishments have deployed, in successions, for decades. This bi-faceted policy-stratagem has proved to best serve the ‘trans-coverings’ and ‘brand-shapings’ of the ground realities and the existing factualities, as well as in the frequent changing of the pretexts that have exclusively been ‘formed-up’ for an on-going ‘human slaughtering’ of the Rohingya minority. The state-structured nexus and other actors follow the very schema-designs of calculated and pre-mapped serialization of ever-escalating ‘sequential massacres’ – consisting upon inhumanely burning alive the children and the disabled, mass rapes and ruthless modus-layouts of harrowing arson in the whole towns of the Rohingya. The unprecedented brutality being carried out in Myanmar’s Rakhine, evidently and markedly bears the essential hallmarks of an entirely ‘systematic ethnic cleansing’ and ‘inhumane genocidal persecution’ of Rohingyas.
Significance of the UN’ Recent Resolution & The World’s Responsibility:
Cautious Vigilance Required for the UN’s Arduous, yet Forthright Track-route adoption to Avert Rohingyas from On-going Genocidal Clampdown—Myanmar Likely to Employ Delay-tactics – Set to Put UN Resolution into a Measured ‘Silence-Zone’—Warns SAIRI
International Community’s Silently ‘Standing-Aside’ Approach Categorically Risks Sloping-down the UN’s Hard-gained Advances in the On-going ‘Planetary Despondent Tragedy’ of Rohingyas’ Ethnic Cleansing
The recent UN’s Human Rights Resolution adopted by consensus in Geneva at the HR session concluded on 24th of Feb. 2017, which calls urgently dispatch a fact-finding mission in order to probe the alleged abuses of human rights against Rohingyas, now stands not only for a UN adopted resolution, but it has far extended from the boundaries where it could be confined or perceived to be dealt-with as a mere UN-resolution, but literally, it has opted to stand out for symbolizing all of the integral, fundamental and imperative dominion protectorates of ‘humaneness’ – if it is to reside over here, upon this earth – at its least realms. This resolution stands for re-echoing the screams of ‘Dying-Alive’ poor Rohingya children. The historic echoing of these screams was voiced by the SAIRI’s P.I.
Now, the rest of the world in a humanistic discourse, and the humanity itself, has exactly approached the cross-roads, where we’ve been left with no option like staying silent alongside the crucial most turning-point faced by the human-uprightness enterprise. This turning-point along the cross roads has precisely converted to a ‘litmus test’ for not only the governments, the political hierarchies or the establishments, but for every single individual, every NGO and every single ‘conscience entity’, who believes in the word ‘humanity’ or has ever held faith in ‘humaneness’—since, it is not, by now the matter of choice between Burmese army and the ‘burnt-alive Rohingya children’ but it is clearly the avenue where the ‘inhumaneness’ and ‘humaneness’ are in a front-to-front situation of a precarious battlefield at a critical most juncture of human history – the moralistic stand-point veracity – as well as the United Nations’ times-accounts of institutional integrity.
Now, we’ve to stand up to raise the voice for those who can’t raise the voice for themselves!
SAIRI Documented ‘Mess-predicaments’ of Rohingya Children:
During the previous years, SAIRI has voiced grave concerns over the appalling conditions, particularly those faced by Rohingya children.
A shocking documentation of the horror-struck state-of-affairs, ascendingly arose a significant response in international ivories, on the issue of the Rohingya Children’s ‘Mess-predicament’. The academically upright document titled ‘SAIRI Situation Report on Rhohingya Children’s Ongoing Crisis’, was primed by SAIRI Post-doc Multiversity. The ‘investigatory document’ was formally submitted through Dr. Belinda E Huang, Executive Director at that time, at the National Postdoctoral Headquarters based in Washington DC.
SAIRI, to its part, “brought forth some of the alarming and perilous ‘information-specifics’ about hundreds of thousands of Rohingya children, who are being horrendously treated, brutally enslaved and inhumanely besieged… It has not only opened the eyes and pricked the minds within the academic segments, the UN and the socio-political ivories, but also served as ‘a mirror to the blind’ at large, in humanistic and moral realms!” opines Justice(R) S.S. Paru L.L.D., Chancellor Emeritus of SAARC-ASEAN Post-doc Academia.
The SAIRI document’s striking diction and mind-pricking phraseology became echoed at the UN floor, that quite meaningfully shaked that world’s conscience as it read:
“The testimonial document of SAIRI, now calls on UN and the trans-regional hierarchies in particular, and the global community in general, to take a ‘moral stand’ by mounting an urgent rejoinder to the most ‘vulnerable hour’ of this humanitarian emergency.”
The Supplication-Plea to the International Community:
“By means of the present account-testimony, I, the SAIRI’s principal investigator, hereby beg and supplicate to the global community that:
Should we, the humans with a ‘humane heart’ within, the academicians with a ‘rational mind’ within, the observers with an ‘observing eye’ within, and the average people from every walk of the life having the least ‘sense of morality’ within, now stand-up together for the sake of re-echoing the screams of ‘dying-alive’ poor Rohingyas and their children, in order to prick the collective conscience of the world, as well as ours own – being physically far and scattered but sentimentally nearby and altogether – as a humanitarian assembly – jointly and equally voicing:
“These longsuffering ‘stateless’ and ‘restless’ entities—the Rohingyas and their desperate children—are on their knees before the collective conscience of the world—the international community—the UN, the governments and the entire humanity.”
“These glimmering flowers are being reduced and converted to dusky coffins, floating on the Andaman Sea, or being dumped to the land beside the squalid camps.”
“The world has become a global village; we are all inhabitants of the same planet to which they belong, and—where alongside, they are being oppressed, thrashed, beleaguered and de-humanized—their homes being burned down—their heads being smashed on roads—their bodies being ruined and crumpled in streets—their small children being enslaved—their women being made sex-slaves—and, due to the inaccessibility to food and water they are forced to drink their own urine to survive…!!!”
“They are like us all—their lives are as precious as our lives—their small babies are as our own small kids—the children that are now on their knees ‘begging-for-their-lives’ are not, but like ours…!!!”
“And, if by now, we fail, therefore, to respond at this vulnerable hour, or if the global community continues to shy away from taking a ‘moral stand’, then, there can be no more justifiable reason for the pursuit of a humane society or for persisting and sticking to even the least realms of humaneness!” pleads Qadhi Aurangzeb Al Hafi.
“We have to strive for a ‘principal resolve’ of the ‘Rohingya Children Crisis’ as a ‘Moral Imperative’—if not a legal requisite..!” urges and presages categorically SAIRI’s situation report on ‘Rohingya Children De-humanizing Crack-down’.
A humble servant of the ‘humanity-in-suffering’ anywhere!
