Abstract

Since the inception of the Declaration of Human Rights, 1948 the acknowledgment of the human rights protection for each person has been arranged, so it is hoped that there is no violation of human rights and crimes in every country in the world. Every human being has the right to live peacefully and carry out every activity of religious beliefs without any oppression. But this does not happen to the Rohingya tribes of Burma and the Uyghur tribes of China. So far, various facts have shown that human rights violations have been held against them, both in sustaining life and in exercising their religious beliefs. Countries should give space and comfort to act as perpetrators of human rights crimes against them. The United Nations, ASEAN or other international organisations, as well as other countries cannot do much of the human rights abuses and humanitarian crimes. This paper will discuss how the international legal view of the human rights abuses is. The results showed that human rights violations against the Rohingya ethnicity and the Uyghur people had violated international law provisions. It should be a proven leader of the country with its policies to have committed human rights violations and humanitarian crimes could be judged international Criminal Court (ICC) as perpetrators of humanitarian crimes and could not be sheltered behind the country. Need the courage and firmness of the UN in addressing this if it still puts the law as a regulator of peace and Order of the world.
