Indonesian community praised for rescuing Rohingya refugees

A group of Rohingya refugees rescued by fishermen in Indonesian waters has disembarked in the province of Aceh.
Ninety-nine people were on board the vessel, including 28 children.
Human rights groups have praised the local community for their efforts, but say governments in the region must do more to protect Rohingya refugees.
Al Jazeera’s Jessica Washington reports from Jakarta, Indonesia.

    So grateful that the Achenese fishermen rescued this group of ninety nine desperate, traumatised and starving Rohingya. It seems that the fishermen have something to teach the government about basic human rights, non-refoulement and the Law of the Sea. To not offer assistance is unlawful, let alone abjectly in-human. The suffering has gone on for decades and decades. Hard to believe that in a world full of diplomacy, “democracy”, “human rights”, UN, Amnesty International, and the multitude of NGO groups… that this terrible dilemma is still happening. When are the bullish ASEAN and UN nations such as China and Russia going to stop boycotting humanitarian Law and assistance to these poor people. And when is all of the rest of the world going to STOP genocidal Myanmar from getting away with ongoing, systematic murder, torture, mass rape, land and financial theft and destruction and utter denial? Clearly our Earth is run by wicked, evil bullies and the rest of the world simply cow-tows. This has to change… if we still fantasise about being human.

    Top large Rohingya people in countries;
    Bangladesh :1.3 million (2017)
    Saudi Arabia :190,000(2017)
    Malaysia:300,000 (2019)
    india : 40,000
    Indonesia : less than 13500 (really small amount no need to act like a good Samaritan)

    yeah i think Indonesia is the best choice to stay for rohingya as they the indonesian always brag about how much they have an islands in their country , almost 17000 islands right ? so why dont they give one or two islands for the rohingya refugees to stay for a while until thing get better for them in myammar .

    United Nations troops should be sent to Myanmar, racism, genocide and other crimes against humanity are rife in the country, until one of the ethnic groups that inhabit it must go abroad to get help.

    Malaysia have been adopting these ungrateful lots .. sorry to say, now they are demanding equal rights as the locals! There are about 100,000 legal Rohingya refugees and another close to 100,000 illegal Rohingya refugees that landed into Malaysia for the past few years.
    We are not taking them in any more … We’ve had our fair share of carrying this burden.
    So .. good luck to you lndonesia 🤭

    good indonesia… take them more to your country…. and then they demand your citizenship…. they demand your land… they demand equality….. and then… oppsss its too late…..


    Rohingya and all people suffering from oppresion are tests for people with wealth in the world. Whether they would share their wealth or be stingy and hold on to their wealth as if theyre going to stay inthis world forever. This life is so ephemeral. One day youre teenager, next day your adult, before you know it you are near 50. And then next day you are alone in your grave. All your family friends and wealth will not follow you! Amazing! Whats the purpose of this life then?
