The persecution of Rohingyas in Myanmar is not an issue that is unheard of by the international community. The question that arises is that why is no action being taken by any of the states to rescue this ethnic group from their tribulations or are they waiting for the conflict to flood the international borders and turn into a mammoth complication before it should be helped. The doctrine of R2P was introduced for this reason that the world does not have to go through the aftermath of inaction in Kosovo de novo or experience the consequences of Rwandan genocide. The paper seeks to manifest the fact that the principle of R2P is applicable in the case of this conflict between the Rohingya Muslims and the Rakhine Buddhists and that it is the duty of the international community, and not something that the states step up for according to their whims, wishes, political interest etc., to aid and abet the end of war of races on the Burmese land.
