Myanmar Military Dread: The Killing of Civilians, Children and Democracy
The excessive collision between the Myanmar military and the soon-to-be losing government powers have reigned escalating the protest situations.
In recent report from the local media houses, Myanmar has witnessed a total of more than 114 killings on Saturday as the military junta escaped the peaceful civilian protests.
The 114 killings of civilians also included the dead body of a 13-year-old girl along with other children whose bodies were extracted after the killings. Around 27 people were killed in the commercial hub of the Yangon, and other places. The news reports further said there were deaths in Sagaing, Lashio in the east, in the Bago region, near Yangon, and elsewhere including the death of one-year-old baby who was hit in the eye with a rubber bullet.
As the Junta force excruciated fire in the Meikhtila area, the civilians irked, expressing their dissent towards the military.
As of now, around 440 civilians have been killed in the ongoing silent protests and the Myanmar military.
The Myanmar Armed Forces Day raised further questions by the anti-coup protestors as they believe the military is oppressing the country of its rights.
Junta leader and Senior General Min Aung Hlaing on the 27th March assured the military will protect the people and strive for democracy. But as the military continues with its hard-hitting strikes, air strikes on villages and throwing people from their homes, it has become impossible for the commoners to believe anything that comes from the military.
British Ambassador Dan Chugg however holds a nod towards the civilians criticizing the Myanmar military as he said ‘security forces have disgraced themselves and the violence is horrifying.”
The killings inculcating the horrendous acts of the junta military has marked international attention but the world seems to back off. Though the UN seems to interfere in the uneven act, the words are in vain as Myanmar has received lesser help. “The continuing military crackdown, which today resulted in the highest daily death toll since demonstrations against the coup began last month, is unacceptable and demands a firm, unified and resolute international response. It is critical to find an urgent solution to this crisis,” stated the deputy spokesperson for the UN security general, Farhan Haq.
Junta has been seeing Russia as a friend after Deputy Defence Minister Alexander Fomin visited Naypyitaw to attend the Armed Forces day. The international opposition to the Junta might be a loss as the country needs Russia and China as its ally, backing off might result into restricted UN actions and any further help to Myanmar’s working.
The UN office interference seems to help the civilians but till today it is just the words that are to be noted. In recent statements, the UN office said “It is horrified by the needless loss of life today with reports of dozens of people shot dead by the military across the country, in the bloodiest day since the coup.”
“The violence is completely unacceptable and must stop immediately. Those responsible must be held to account.”
If the media is to be believed, the civilians have been risking their lives to fight for saving the country’s democratic grounds. State television on Friday reported “Despite this, demonstrators against the February 1 coup came out on the streets of Yangon, Mandalay and other towns.”
“Ensuring peace and defending the people should be the responsibility of any military, but the Tatmadaw has turned against its own people,” said Christine Schraner Burgener at the special Envoy on Myanmar.
Aung San Suu, the lady who led Myanmar from being a military junta to partial democracy has been detained on February 1.
The Myanmar military detained the State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi declaring a year-long emergency in the country. Since then, Myanmar has been degrading its democratic stake throwing its civilians into the hands of the junta military, with hundreds of them shot dead and severe casualties attained.
