Arakan-We brought up the things happening in Arakan.

The Marmara Group Foundation requested the condemnation of Myanmar, seeking sensitivity and support for Arakan by applying to the United Nations of which The Marmara Group Foundation is a consultative member and international non-governmental organizations.

President of the Marmara Group Foundation Dr. Akkan Suver condemned the inhuman incidents in Arakan with the identity of civil society and asked for cooperation in the civil repression on Myanmar by appealing to the five thousand think tanks in the international arena.

The Marmara Group Foundation demanded sensitivity with a letter written to both 5,000 think tanks that are partners in the United Nations Economic and Social Council, of which The Marmara Group Foundation is a consultative member, and two hundred independent NGOs in cooperation with the Marmara Group Foundation.

The letter of the Marmara Group Foundation is as below;
"We strongly condemn the humanitarian crisis and human rights violations in Arakan that are taking place in front of the eyes of the world.

There is a disaster in Arakan and this disaster continues with increasing violence as a shame of mankind.

With our civil society identity, we want the Arakan problem to be accepted primarily by Myanmar, and the desperate Rohingians, one of the ethnic groups that are exposed to violence in the world, should not be called separatist terrorists.

We believe that civil repression and letters of protest to the Government of Myanmar would be beneficial for stopping the attacks.

Along with the end of the inhuman massacres against the Muslim Rohingians who were born in Arakan, we invite international non-governmental organizations to take the actions against Myanmar regarding Rohingians' citizenship right, recognition of their identity, acceptance of their cultural rights, their right to start business and to pray together.

In particular, we must remind President Aung San Suu Kyi the responsibilities of a Nobel Peace Prize Owner. We must convey our concerns and worries about the violence on the eve of the radicalization against the Rohingians, who have no status, no right to be educated, to travel, and no right to own a property.

As the Marmara Group Foundation, we condemn the attacks and we attach importance to the actions that convey our humanitarian concerns to Government of Myanmar for taking solution-oriented measures with our civil society identity."
