UN should take action to save Rohingyas

The United Nations Security Council has imposed fresh sanctions on North Korea for its recent nuclear tests. If it could impose such harsh sanctions on North Korea for its unruly behaviour, why is it, at the same time, ignoring the Rohingya crisis? And why could the Security Council not even pass a resolution on the plight of the Rohingyas? Isn't that the least it could do given the ground realities?

The UN has even acknowledged now that Myanmar's brutal military operation against Rohingyas amounts to ethnic cleansing. Yet, it has failed to take any discernible action to stop the horrors that the Rohingya people are being exposed to. Does that not justify any action by the international community?

Will the UN and the international community just stand by and watch as Myanmar continues to persecute the Rohingyas? Will Myanmar be allowed to completely root out the Rohingya people from their own land? If so, the international community and the UN will lose much credibility in the eyes of the people of the world.
