NUG to repeal Myanmar’s controversial “citizenship law” if it comes to power

Azim Nihad:

Myanmar’s anti-junta coalition government, the National Unity Government (NUG), is slowly ascending to power. Due to the strong position of the alliance, the junta government is very shaky. NUG expects them to come to power soon. Aung kyaw Moe,NUG’s human rights adviser, claims that if he comes to power, he will repeal the controversial 1982 citizenship law and solve the long-running problems of the Rohingya.
He made the remarks in a virtual interview with TTN on Monday (June 20).
Aung kyaw Moe,NUG’s human rights adviser, said many of Myanmar’s black laws were already in the process of being repealed. The NUG has also taken steps to repeal the 1982 Citizenship Act, which has become a poison for the Rohingya. However, the matter is still under process. They have plans to cancel in the next 2 to 3 months. He said that once their executive power is exercised in the country, it will be implemented on priority basis.
Needless to say, NUG has already been recognized by several international circles, including the French Senate.
The military government enacted the Citizenship Act in 1982 and stripped the Rohingya of their citizenship. As a result, they are slowly being expelled. Since then, Rohingyas have infiltrated on a small scale in the face of persecution by the military government, but in 2017, about one million Rohingyas fled and took refuge in Bangladesh. Allegations of genocide against Rohingya have surfaced against Myanmar’s military. Which is currently in the process of trial in the International Court of Justice.
Although Rohingyas were sheltered in 34 camps in Ukhia-Teknaf, Bangladesh expected them to return to their homeland Myanmar through speedy repatriation. But repatriation has been pending in Myanmar for more than five years.
However, Rohingyas do not want to stay in Bangladesh for another moment. They want quick repatriation by any means. Although they have been raising their demands through the media or international organizations for so long, on June 19, they rallied in the camps, demanding their return to their homeland through the ” Go Home” campaign. One of the demands for repatriation was the repeal of the 1982 Citizenship Act. However, in 2019, for the first time, the Rohingyas staged a huge assembly led by Master Muhibullah, who was shot dead by terrorists.
Dr. Zubair and Master Kamal, one of the leaders of the Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights, an organization founded by Muhibullah, said, “Bangladesh has given us shelter in times of crisis. We are grateful to the government and people of this country. We want to go to our country and live independently. ”
Dr. Zubayer and Kamal also said, “Repealing the 1982 Citizenship Act will solve all our problems. We want to live in the same way that other ethnic groups in Myanmar have survived.”
Rohingya leader Nurul Amin said, “Immediate repatriation of Rohingyas to their respective villages. Rights and security must be ensured. The repatriation process is effective, IDP camps in Rakhine state should be closed, Rohingyas should be repatriated and torture on innocent people in Myanmar should be stopped. ”
Aung Kysw Moe is the only Rohingya representative in Myanmar’s National Unity Government (NUG). He was in charge of the Ministry of Human Rights in that government. He himself demanded that the participation of Rohingya representatives in NUG should be further increased. Because Rohingyas outnumber many other ethnic groups in Myanmar. He said he was in regular talks with policymakers on the issue.
The NUG, meanwhile, has already raised objections to the International Court of Justice’s closure of the judiciary, and has been vocal about the repatriation and rights of Rohingya.
Thanking the people and government of Bangladesh for providing shelter to the Rohingyas, Aung Kyaw Moe drew the attention of the Rohingyas and said, “I am trying my best at NUG to find a lasting solution to the long standing problem of Rohingyas. But in this case all Rohingyas have to raise their voice.”
Meanwhile, after 5 long years, Rohingya repatriation is still in the dark. The matter is getting more and more hidden day by day. As the repatriation process has stalled, so has the uncertainty among the Rohingya, as well as the deteriorating law and order situation in Bangladesh. Therefore, the rapid repatriation of Rohingyas is urgent, said analysts.
