Racism is a global question. It is now happening in many countries of the world. Many poor and needy people are now getting tormented and conflicted due to racism and military conflicts. In this individual proposal, I would like to talk about a racial conflict currently happening at Rakhine and Arakan States in Myanmar. I would argue that the Rohingya Refugee Crisis should be banned at any cost by the influential global leaders since it is a big challenge for two neighboring countries, like Bangladesh and Myanmar. According to the United Nations, the Rohingyas are the most persecuted minority groups in the globe. From 2012 to the present, the whole world has witnessed Myanmar’s renewed waves of full-fledged genocide campaign, hate crimes, and ostracizing against the most vulnerable and unarmed Rohingya population in the name of national security. Myanmar is responsible for the worst sufferings of the Rohingya.Consequently; it has failed to perform its obligation under the International Law to protect its citizens, which amounts to internationally wrongful acts. According to Articles 31 and 41 of the UN Draft Articles on Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts, the responsible state is under an obligation to make full-reparation for the injury caused by its internationally wrongful acts. Are the Rohingya Refugees not the nations of the states? Don't they have Human Rights? How long will the tormented and downtrodden communities tolerate such cruelty and injustice? What sorts of role will International Law and the UN play for the Rohingya refugees? For this purpose, I would like to motivate the world's intellectual figures so that the Rohingya Refugee crisis must be protected through aneverlasting solution. No people of the world must be neglected like the Rohingya refugees. All human beings are equal in the eye of the law; they have the same blood and same body. Anyway, the light talk aims to focus on the conflicting senses of the minority groups in the light of Racism and taking precautionary steps.

Keywords: Rohingya Refugee Crisis, International Law, Genocide, Racism, UNHCR, and UN.
