First Internatioanal Conference on the Rohingyas of Burma – an old video, only recently released

In 2007 JARO under the able leadership of Mr. Salim Ullah hosted the first international conference on the Rohingyas of Burma (Myanmar) in two cities of Japan, which included Tokyo. Recently, I came across the newly released videos from this conference. I was invited as the chief guest and keynote speaker in this conference. The videos can be seen here in piecemeals (8 part series).

As you will notice, my concerns about the Rohingya people in a flawed democracy came so true with the latest unleasing of the pogroms against them – this time a collaborative one between the state actors and racist, criminal Rakhine politicians of the Arakan state.
