A commentator says the "real issue" regarding the persecution of Rohingya Muslims "is to stop the Myanmar government," which observers say may be engaged in ethnic cleansing of the minority.

“The world community and ordinary people need to rise up much more and put pressure” on Myanmar’s government and army to stop the killings, Massoud Shadjareh told Press TV on Wednesday.

The UN aid for Myanmar’s Muslims is not going to address the emergency situation of the Rohingya minority, the head of Islamic Human Rights Commission said.
