The Rohingya Muslims: The Victims of Pure State-Terrorism            

"The population of the Rohingya Muslims is being continuously annihilated as per a blue print of ethnic cleansing."Double standard has become the most established norm in world politics; one rule for the Muslims and another rule for the non-Muslims is now visible everywhere. If a terrorist attack takes place in a western city by a Muslim, the western governments, the European Union, the media outfits, even the UN Security Council, spare no time to condemn it.
