900,000 ROHINGYA REFUGEES: THE MOMENT WHEN HUMANITARIAN SPIRIT FAILED
In the face of the historical disasters experienced by humanity, a majority of the world has developed some sort of reflex to ‘close their eyes’ and ‘play ostrich’. Many leaders, administrators, and representatives around the world, prefer to remain indifferent and unresponsive to these catastrophes.
When asked about what the EU should do regarding the situation in Myanmar, High Representative, Federica Mogherini, gave a marked answer: “I tend to avoid answering questions that are not related to the agenda we had.”
The answer also revealed an important truth: Today, the world agenda is shaped only by the interests and problems of the powerful. Those who are oppressed are often left alone with their own problems if they are not rich, have no oil or natural resources, or do not have any relevance to serving the interests of the powerful.
Ignoring, or underestimating, the inhumane practices Muslims are subjected to has become an ugly tradition, particularly in certain circles. Problems that could easily be solved with simple interventions, with little cost and effort, continue to grow exponentially behind a collective wall of nonchalance. The disastrous events taking place in Rakhine, Syria, Africa or Southeast Asia, continue to find a place in world news reports every day, as a shame on humanity. Read More
