Based on their leader Ata Ullah, ARSA’s mainly objective is “to liberate our individuals from dehumanized oppression perpetrated by all successive Burmese regimes”. ARSA, which frequently distanced itself from Al Qaeda and ISIS, has transported out number of attacks against security forces in Myanmar.
The worldwide community should begin taking serious actions to prevent these jihad rallying calls. You will find number of options that may begin with recalling ambassadors, to closing embassies or perhaps imposing economic sanctions. This political inaction creates vacuums that may be easily exploited by terror groups for his or her own agendas, turning Myanmar into another hotbed of worldwide terrorism.

The United nations issued many statements concerning the crisis in Myanmar, “called for” an finish of violence and lots of United nations officials described the crisis being an “example of ethnic cleansing”, but calling a spade a spade if you don’t take an effective action to relieve the plight of individuals suffering may be worth nothing.
