Title: The Myth of the "Clash of Civilizations"
Date of publication: 1998
Description/subject: "This is a wonderful lecture by Edward Said on Samuel Huntington’s idea about “Clash of civilizations”. In this lecture Edward Said analyses in detail the arguments of Samuel Huntington in his paper on Clash of civilizations (with a question mark) that ultimately became his book (this time without a question mark!). Edward Said incisively analyzes Huntington’s notion that differences in culture between the ‘West’ and ‘Islam’ will lead to conflicts between the two civilizations. Arguing against monolithic understanding of cultures, Said makes a powerful case for multiculturalism. Edward Said is one of the most powerful speakers I have listened to off-late, and this dense lecture is worth every minute of it. The talk is approximately 40 minutes and is followed by questions."

MYANMAR:(A/HRC/37/NGO/82) ..."The Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC) and Odhikar draw the attention of the UN Human Rights Council. It is concerned about the current situation of the Rohingya Community in the Rakhine State of Myanmar. We seek immediate and effective action from the international human rights community. There is a need to protect the Rohingya people from further violence by Myanmar security forces. There is an undeniable need for and ensuring the safe return of the Rohingyas from Bangladesh to their original homes in Myanmar. The Government of Myanmar has been systematically denying the Rohingya people’s fundamental rights in the Rakhine State1. The Rohingya people are not even considered citizens of Myanmar. The systematic process of persecution and eviction of Rohingyas from Myanmar is not new.2 The militarised Government of Myanmar and its civilian partners have deprived the Rohingya community for decades of their fundamental rights. The State authorities have evicted victims from their own land although historic records assert that the Rohingyas have been living there for hundreds of years..."

Title: Human rights violations against Rohingya Muslims
Date of publication: 06 February 2018
Description/subject: "Racism and racial discrimination has always been one of the most important problems in human history and is a violation of the Universal statement of Human Rights (1948) which has given all people equality and a life free from discrimination. The Human rights declaration states that everyone has the right to life, liberty and personal security, no one can be subjected to torture or capital punishment, everyone has the right to freedom of thought and religion, and everyone has the right to freedom of expression and opinion. Today, unfortunately, these minimum human rights are not respected by the Myanmar government, and Rohingya Muslims face the strictest violations of their human rights for being Muslim and for having different ideas to the majority of people in that society which are the main reasons for this treatment. Thousands have been killed, wounded and displaced by the Myanmar Army's attacks on Muslims and the situation of women and children is much worse. The Myanmar army kills men and assaults women, many Muslims are forced to move from their country, which, according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is one of the fundamental and basic rights of humans living in their homeland..."

Title: Human Rights Violation in Myanmar and the current situation of the Rohingya
Date of publication: 13 February 2018
Description/subject: "Since late August 2017 more than 680, 000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar in an attempt to escape the human rights violation and brutality of the military. The UN itself called the recent developments a 'textbook example of ethnic cleansing'. It is not the first time the Muslim minority is under attack in the predominantly Buddhist state of Myanmar, previous waves of assault and expulsion can be found throughout the last century. But the atrocities of the last months exceed the previous extent by far and underline the urgent need for the international community to act on behalf of the Rohingya. According to Doctors without Borders, alone in the first thirty days after the crackdown an estimate of 6, 700 Rohingya were killed in the formally parliamentary democracy. As basis of legitimacy for the, in our eyes, disproportionate military actions served an attack by Rohingya insurgents on security posts near Rathedaung township on 25th August 2017. Since that day, more than 350 villages, where mostly Rohingya lived, have been burned down, personal property was destroyed, womenwere raped, men abused and children killed, forcing the residents to flee to the neighboring countries like Bangladesh, India, Thailand or Malaysia to escape the military violence in their home country Myanmar..."

Its independence should be maintained, and it should be given adequate resources to carry out its mandate. In 2015, the National League for Democracy (NLD) won the country’s first democratic elections in 25 years but democratisation remains fragile, and there is evidence of significant regression in some areas, particularly freedom of the press, freedom of expression and freedom of religion or belief (FoRB)..."

Title: Are the Rohingya on the brink of another crisis? (video)
Date of publication: 15 February 2018
Description/subject: "The UN says the March monsoon season poses a serious threat to thousands living in Bangladeshi refugee camps...To date roughly 670,000 Rohingya have fled their homes in Myanmar, to Bangladesh, in an effort to escape violence. More than 1,500 refugees have fled this month alone and thousands more are expected. The mass exodus began back in August when the Myanmar military began attacking the Rohingya and torching their villages after a small Rohingya armed group attached an army checkpoint. The United Nations and human rights groups have said the campaign amounts to ethnic cleansing. The UN estimates 107,000 refugees are living in areas of Bangladesh prone to flooding or landslides. "We are now in a race against time," says Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. "The [Bangladeshi] Government is steering a massive emergency preparedness effort, but international support must be stepped up to avert a catastrophe," he said in a statement to the U.N. Security Council . Meanwhile, an explosive expose by Reuters about a massacre in a Rohingya village has landed two Reuters journalists in jail. Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo investigated the killing of 10 Rohingya muslims in Northern Rakhine state who were reportedly were shot and hacked to death by a group that included their Buddhist neighbors and Myanmar soldiers. The journalists are charged with receiving government secrets and face up to 14 years in prison. They appeared in court Wednesday, just one day after receiving a major press award for their investigation..."

Title: Human Rights Council must address dramatic deterioration of human rights situation in Myanmar - Amnesty International's written statement to the 37th session of the UN Human Rights Council (26 February-23 March 2018)
Date of publication: 16 February 2018
Description/subject: "The situation in Myanmar has deteriorated dramatically in the last year, and across the country the military has committed wide-ranging human rights violations. The severity of the situation cannot be understated. Myanmar today increasingly – and alarmingly – resembles the Myanmar of old. The civilian government, while holding no formal power over the military, has failed to curb the violence, and instead has often fostered rather than challenged impunity and discrimination. The country risks regressing still further unless there is a major change in course. This not only necessitates a fundamental change from Myanmar’s civilian and military authorities, but also much more effective action from the international community. At the upcoming session, the UN Human Rights Council must send a clear message to Myanmar’s leaders that human rights violations – both past and ongoing – will not go unpunished."

Title: Massacre in Myanmar
Date of publication: 08 February 2018
Description/subject: "How Myanmar forces burned, looted and killed in a remote village... On Sept. 2, Buddhist villagers and Myanmar troops killed 10 Rohingya men in Myanmar's restive Rakhine state. Reuters uncovered the massacre and has pieced together how it unfolded. During the reporting of this article, two Reuters journalists were arrested by Myanmar police.NN DIN, Myanmar – Bound together, the 10 Rohingya Muslim captives watched their Buddhist neighbors dig a shallow grave. Soon afterwards, on the morning of Sept. 2, all 10 lay dead. At least two were hacked to death by Buddhist villagers. The rest were shot by Myanmar troops, two of the gravediggers said. “One grave for 10 people,” said Soe Chay, 55, a retired soldier from Inn Din’s Rakhine Buddhist community who said he helped dig the pit and saw the killings. The soldiers shot each man two or three times, he said. “When they were being buried, some were still making noises. Others were already dead.” The killings in the coastal village of Inn Din marked another bloody episode in the ethnic violence sweeping northern Rakhine state, on Myanmar’s western fringe. Nearly 690,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled their villages and crossed the border into Bangladesh since August. None of Inn Din’s 6,000 Rohingya remained in the village as of October..."

Title: Inn Din massacre report puts Myanmar at a crossroads
Date of publication: 14 February 2018
Description/subject: "LAST WEEK’S explosive Reuters investigation into the killings of 10 Rohingya at Inn Din in northern Rakhine State in September made for grim reading. In what is one of the best, most detailed reports on the crisis, the Reuters team – including journalists Ko Wa Lone and Ko Kyaw Soe Oo who were arrested in December while researching the story and remain in jail – documented how government troops and Buddhist villagers carried out the killings and buried the victims in a single grave. Few who have seen it will forget the haunting photograph of the kneeling men surrounded by security forces shortly before their death. In this case, the “picture tells a thousand words” cliché rang true. But the text was just as powerful; a 4,500-word indictment of the authorities’ brazen denials that its forces have been responsible for systematic human rights abuses. Of course, the military has already admitted that its forces, together with Buddhist villagers, killed the 10 men. It did this to pre-empt the release of the Reuters report, and after its own investigation had claimed that no such killings took place...".....This editorial appears in the February 15 edition of Frontier.
