<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Seven human rights organisations put up a convention on Monday titled ‘Convention against ongoing atrocities on Rohingyas in Myanmar’.Condemning the action of Myanmar police and administration which has forced Rohingyas to escape to Bangladesh, the activists put forward a six-point demand. They include immediate halt of police and army action on Rohingyas, creating a favourable environment in Myanmar so that all of them can return and government should ensure their rehabilitation, government should take the responsibility of the security of their lives and property, police and army personnel guilty of killing and raping Rohingyas should be identified and punished, media and human rights organisations should be given access to the place and those who had taken refuge in India should not be forced back by the Indian government and it should put pressure on Myanmar government to take them back and give them citizenship.Human rights activist and national vice-president of People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL), Dr Binayak Sen, who was also one of the panellists, lent his support to the demands. “We condemn the inhuman treatment meted out to the Rohingyas from the pth of our hearts and intend to find a way out of it. On behalf of PUCL, we will support the resolution which will be adopted today,” Sen said.
