To, His Excellency U Thein Sein President of Union of Myanamr Date: April 12, 2013 Appeal to save Muslim

from Genocide in Burma. We represent Myanmar Muslim and Rohingya Muslim gathering in front Myanmar Permanent mission at New York to draw your kind attention for the crisis in Myanmar. We would like you to succeed in the effort of democratization in Myanmar but you must be very firm in public safety in Myanmar. Under your leadership, lawlessness and anarchy is widely spread and terrorist network of 969 and others are openly calling Muslim genocide in Myanamr as we can see the evident in Meikhila. Violence started in May 2012 at Arakan state has escalated and spread to the whole Burma would have been stop if your government has taken strong stand on rule of law and prosecute the mastermind of violence and its network. We feel very discourage when you spoke on Rohingya issue with corrupted information but we feel enlighten when you spoke about building more school in Rohingya area, planning for resettlement and reconstruction of towns and villages. You must accept that Burma is plural society which is belonging to many ethnic group including Rohingya and many religious including Muslim. You must also acknowledge that Minority cannot threaten the security of country but Majority provokes violence, minority is always victims especially when they are not protected by national security institution like in Meikhila. We were here at July 2012 to plea your honorable to ask UN lead investigation of the root cause of the violence and the mastermind behind violence but ignored us or you were not able to do that due to your internal obstacle. Your failure to expose the criminals which may include some military personal, security forces, members of your party and other individuals make the extremist become more powerful and able to carry out large scale violence which amount to ethnic cleansing and genocide like in the cities of Kyaukphyu,Mimbya and Meikhila.

In the beginning, it may be sectarian conflict but at latter stage most of the attacked were unilateral and some time government security forces make things worse. Dear Sir, how long you would like to wait to implement strong security measure? Dear Sir, Dont you sympathize many Muslim innocent children were cutely killed by Buddhist terrorist and burn them alive for just being Muslim. We were aware that you do not want to jeopardize transition of democracy in Burma but how you would achieve real democracy while ignoring violation or abuse of most fundamental right of its minority Muslim in Burma? We ask you to implement the following urgently, if it is difficult for you to implement your most basic fundamental duty which is to protect its citizen from anarchy, you would be better off by resigning your post as President,

1. You must make sure that security forces will not be watching and doing nothing when mosques were attacked or when Muslim is being killed. 2. You must prosecute anti Muslim movement leaders of 969 whose main aim is to destabilize the nation by provoking Muslim hatred with false propaganda. 3. If Current law is not enough for you to prevent lawlessness, you must ask parliament to make a law so that every citizen in Myanmar will be safe. 4. You must abandon General Ne Win policy to strip Rohingya citizenship and make them stateless. 5. Myanmar government must abandon their plan to send Rohingya Muslim to third country or put into concentration camps forever which is a clear violation of Human Right. 6. Form UN independent commission to investigate the terrorist network and how state involve in planning and executing of violent that lead to genocide in Arkan, Meikhila, and elsewhere in Burma. 7. Government must not let anti Muslim campaign out of control and bring responsible mastermind to justice.

8. Government must lead reconciliation effort to have better understanding among different religious with love and respect. If require, government must allowed international expart to help in implementing it. 9. Myanmar government must not block rebuilding Mosques and religious building and Muslim home and villages at its original places. 10. Ask government of Myanmar to close Rohingya concentration camps and resettle the internally displace people to the town and villages that they were belong. 11. Myanmar government must acknowledge having old policy of inciting religious riots for political gain and Muslim minorities are always victims but now it must abandon it completely for the sake of our beloved country. 12. No Muslim of Burma must be treated as second class citizen due to his or her faith or ethnicity and all confiscated land belong to Rohingya and other Muslim must be returned to rightful owners. 13. Myanmar government must make sure that all Rohingya and Muslim will not victim of force labor, travel restriction, marriage restriction. 14.
