It can be seen that the issue of violence and repression committed by the Myanmar regime has led to Rohingya ethnic suffering seems never-ending. In addition, the suffering experienced by these ethnic are very sad because their children, women and the whole Rohingya Muslims are oppressed and their human rights are denied. Even they also get service and treated with the most extreme and severe. In the turmoil that hit Myanmar, we see Myanmar conduct various forms of violence against the Rohingya community. Although ASEAN practice Non-Intervention Policy (NIP) in its member issue, but the issue conducted by Myanmar against Rohingya ethnic involving human rights and it is a humanitarian issue that needs to be solved immediately. Issues that occur in Myanmar is seen as a form of violence by their efforts to erode the Rohingya ethnic group committed by the military in Myanmar. With it, this could give a bad impression to the ASEAN following Myanmar brutal action against the Rohingya ethnic.

ASEAN which brings the goal of maintaining peace and prosperity in Southeast Asia seems scratches through Myanmar’s cruel action. Moreover, in this case also found that the Rohingya issue also poses a dilemma to the ASEAN member countries. This is because there are ASEAN member countries who want to help the Rohingya and this is a dilemma for ASEAN practiced NIP. This policy stated that any country that has the problem should not be interference from other ASEAN members. Therefore, it is clear that NIP is now less relevant practiced because the Rohingya ethnic need protection and assistance in line with human rights and humanitarian contained in ASEAN. However, if seen NIP has maintained security in the ASEAN region since ASEAN was established. It is better this NIP amended in line with the current situation prevailing in the ASEAN. Therefore, it is expected with this basic modifications can help and defend the fate of Rohingya ethnic in general as well as ensuring peace and prosperity among ASEAN members, and is capable of enhancing the reputation of ASEAN on a global level.

The name Genghis Khan often conjures the image of a relentless, bloodthirsty barbarian on horseback leading a ruthless band of nomadic warriors in the looting of the civilized world. But the surprising truth is that Genghis Khan was a visionary leader whose conquests joined backward Europe with the flourishing cultures of Asia to trigger a global awakening, an unprecedented explosion of technologies, trade, and ideas. In Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World, Jack Weatherford, the only Western scholar ever to be allowed into the Mongols’ “Great Taboo”—Genghis Khan’s homeland and forbidden burial site—tracks the astonishing story of Genghis Khan and his descendants, and their conquest and transformation of the world.

Fighting his way to power on the remote steppes of Mongolia, Genghis Khan developed revolutionary military strategies and weaponry that emphasized rapid attack and siege warfare, which he then brilliantly used to overwhelm opposing armies in Asia, break the back of the Islamic world, and render the armored knights of Europe obsolete. Under Genghis Khan, the Mongol army never numbered more than 100,000 warriors, yet it subjugated more lands and people in twenty-five years than the Romans conquered in four hundred. With an empire that stretched from Siberia to India, from Vietnam to Hungary, and from Korea to the Balkans, the Mongols dramatically redrew the map of the globe, connecting disparate kingdoms into a new world order.

But contrary to popular wisdom, Weatherford reveals that the Mongols were not just masters of conquest, but possessed a genius for progressive and benevolent rule. On every level and from any perspective, the scale and scope
of Genghis Khan’s accomplishments challenge the limits of imagination. Genghis Khan was an innovative leader, the first ruler in many conquered countries to put the power of law above his own power, encourage religious freedom, create public schools, grant diplomatic immunity, abolish torture, and institute free trade. The trade routes he created became lucrative pathways for commerce, but also for ideas, technologies, and expertise that transformed the way people lived. The Mongols introduced the first international paper currency and postal system and developed and spread revolutionary technologies like printing, the cannon, compass, and abacus. They took local foods and products like lemons, carrots, noodles, tea, rugs, playing cards, and pants and turned them into staples of life around the world. The Mongols were the architects of a new way of life at a pivotal time in history.

In Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World, Jack Weatherford resurrects the true history of Genghis Khan, from the story of his relentless rise through Mongol tribal culture to the waging of his devastatingly successful wars and the explosion of civilization that the Mongol Empire unleashed. This dazzling work of revisionist history doesn’t just paint an unprecedented portrait of a great leader and his legacy, but challenges us to reconsider how the modern world was made.

Isu kekejaman dan penindasan yang dilakukan oleh regim Myanmar telah menyebabkan etnik Rohingya mengalami penderitaan yang kelihatan tidak kunjung habisnya. Selain itu,penderitaan yang di alami oleh etnik ini amatlah menyedihkan kerana jika dilihat kanak-kanak,perempuan dan masyarakat keseluruhan Rohingya yang beragama Islam ditindas dan hak asasi mereka turut dinafikan. Bahkan mereka juga turut mendapat layanan dan diperlakukan dengan amat keterlaluan dan teruk. Oleh itu,dalam kemelut yang melanda di Myanmar ini, kita lihat Myanmar melakukan pelbagai bentuk kekejaman terhadap masyarat Rohingya,walaupun ASEAN mengamalkan dasar Tidak Campur Tangan dalam isu negara-negara yang menganggotai ASEAN, namun isu yang dilakukan oleh Myanmar terhadap etnik Rohingnya melibatkan hak asasi manusia dan ia merupakan isu kemanusiaan yang perlu diselesaikan dengan segera kerana ia melibatkan pelanggaran hak asasi manusia dan melibatkan ASEAN dalam hal ini. Isu yang berlaku di Myanmar ini dilihat sebagai satu bentuk kekejaman dengan usaha mereka yang mahu menghapuskan etnik Rohingya yang dilakukan oleh golongan tentera di Myanmar. Dengan itu,ini mampu memberi gambaran buruk kepada ASEAN berikutan dengan tindakan kejam Myanmar terhadap etnik Rohingya. ASEAN yang membawa matlamat menjaga keamanan dan kemakmuran di Asia Tenggara dilihat tercalar akibat perbuatan kejam Myanmar. Selain itu,dalam hal ini juga didapati bahawa isu Rohingya ini juga menimbulkan dilema kepada negara-negara anggota ASEAN. Hal ini demikian kerana terdapat negara-negara anggota ASEAN yang ingin membantu masyarakat Rohingya dan ini mengalami dilema kerana dasar tidak campur tangan yang diamalkan ASEAN. Dasar tersebut menyebabkan mana-mana negara yang mengalami masalah tidak boleh ada campur tangan daripada anggota-anggota ASEAN yang lain. Oleh itu, jelaslah bahawa Dasar Tidak Campur Tangan (DTC) kini kurang relevan diamalkan kerana etnik Rohingya perlukan pembelaan dan bantuan selari dengan hak asasi dan kemanusiaan yang terdapat dalam ASEAN. Walau bagaimanapun,DTC ini jika dilihat telah mengekalkan keamanan di rantau ASEAN sejak ASEAN ditubuhkan. Dengan itu adalah lebih baik DTC ini diubah selari dengan keadaan semasa yang berlaku di dalam ASEAN. Oleh itu, diharap dengan pengubahsuaian yang dilakukan dasar itu mampu membantu dan membela nasib etnik Rohingya amnya sekaligus menjamin keamanan dan kemakmuran dalam kalangan anggota_anggota ASEAN, lalu ini mampu meningkatkan nama baik ASEAN di peringkat global.
