He said this was to ensure that the card was only issued to ethnic Rohingya Muslim refugees in this country.

“I urge that the (National) Security Council look again at the card issued by the UNHCR which should be issued to the Rohingyas,” he told reporters at the Parliament lobby, here, today.

Shahidan said he was worried if some of the UNHCR card holders were also involved in committing atrocities against the ethnic Rohingyas in the Rakhine region of Myanmar.

He also said that the United Nations should investigate on Myanmar Foreign Minister and State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi for allowing the carnage to go on in Rakhine State.

“She (Aung San Suu Kyi) should remember and see whether she qualified to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. I did not expect that she who had purportedly fought for human rights, has allowed the killings and other atrocities to occur in her own backyard,” he added.

  1. Najib’s motive for supporting the Rohingya rally may go beyond sympathy for an oppressed minority, however. He is also looking to burnish his credentials with Muslim voters in the face of serious corruption allegations that have dogged his government for the past two years.
