On behalf of Rohingya community and Myanmar Muslim community, we would like to convey our gratitude to President Barack Obama for his contribution for national reconciliation in Myanmar. We greatly admire your leadership and your approach to educate Myanmar about religious freedom, civil liberty, free speech and equality among all citizens of Myanmar. 

You inspired the 60 million people of Myanmar when you said: ''But there is no excuse for violence against innocent people. And the Rohingya... hold within themselves the same dignity as you do, and I do.''

We also would like to thank and congratulate the 21 congressmen and senators who successfully had the president highlight the plight of Rohingya during his trip to Myanmar. Our sincere thanks also to our volunteers who worked tirelessly before the president's historical trip to inform him about the real situation in Arakan.
