Reports have come out that the Myanmar government has placed landmines at the border while refugees have said that officers will just shoot at anyone fleeing.

She made her debut before the United Nations assembly last September, winning warm applause for a speech delivered months after she became Myanmar's first civilian leader following a decades-long democracy struggle under the former junta.

The crisis over the security forces' fierce response to a series of Rohingya militant attacks is the biggest problem Suu Kyi has faced since becoming Myanmar's leader a year ago.

The crisis has drawn sharp criticism from around the world.

Later, he stressed on the need for collaboration between the government and the establishment to bring the Rohingya Muslim refugees to Pakistan.

The OIC also called for cooperation among Muslim countries aimed at dispatching humanitarian aid to the oppressed Rohingya and attending to the condition of the refugees.

The U.N.'s High Commissioner For Human Rights, Zeid Raad Al Hussein, said on Monday that Myanmar was engaging in what appeared to be a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing". "Tendentious judgments made on the basis of selective and even inaccurate reports do not further the understanding of human rights in any society". Making matters worse, the genocide has been met with silence from leader Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace prize dissident who captured the hearts of the west and won praise when she became the de facto leader in 2015.

Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said on Tuesday the refugees would all have to go home and Myanmar should set up safe zones to enable them to do so. The attacks triggered a sweeping military counter-offensive by security forces in Buddhist-majority Myanmar which the United Nations rights agency has accused of "textbook genocide". The military commander in chief's office said yesterday on its Facebook page that the six alleged insurgents were detained as they entered Ka Nyin Tan village in Maungdaw township.

"Bangladesh is a country of 16 crore people and we have ensured their basic needs, we also have capability to provide all kinds of help including food and healthcare services to the Myanmar refugees", she said.

"They should stop the violence", she told the BBC. Some say they were attacked by Buddhist mobs.

Rohingya families have been arriving in Bangladesh from Myanmar in waves since the 1970s.

At least three Rohingya have been wounded in land mine blasts, and dozens have drowned when boats capsized during sea crossings.

The unrest in Myanmar intensified this August, after Rohingya militants allegedly conducted a series of coordinated attacks on police and army posts, forcing the state to retaliate. Socially, economically and politically marginalised, the Rohingya, unlike other ethnic minorities, are not categorised as citizens of Myanmar.
