As per the reports, more than 20,000 Muslims have been killed by the extremist Buddhists in Burma’s Rakhine province but unfortunately no actions have been taken by anyone as of yet. All the human right champions are ignoring the matter. Even the media is silent over the issue, which is of utmost importance.
JAMAAT-e-Islami’s Syed Munawar Hasan has expressed his grave concerns over the issue and while speaking on his inclusion he stated Myanmar Muslims are being killed because they are not converting to Buddhism.
Hasan has appealed to the world community, especially the Muslim rulers, to highlight the issue and exert diplomatic pressure on Myanmar government so that the violence which is being done in the day light stops.
Hasan insisted that tens of thousands of Myanmar Muslims are lying at the borders of Burma and Bangladesh in search of some help but no one is noticing them. He said they badly need help and financial assistance.
In the meantime, Mr. Hasan revealed that JIP had set up a relief fund for the innocent and helpless Muslims of Myanmar and he is hoping donations from the well-to-do people.
APML (All Muslim League Secretary) General Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif has urged the Muslims countries as well.
The General Secretary remarked that over 500 Muslims villages have been burned in the last two months and thousands of people have been brutally killed on the streets. He said he wants all the Muslims countries to protest and rescue their brothers and sisters.
Well, all said and done, for the first time the Government of Pakistan has expressed its concerns over the genocide of Muslims in Myanmar Burma.
Different religious and political parties in Pakistan have decided to submit a memorandum to Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan so that it could be sent to the president of the country and also to the ministry of foreign affairs.
It is certainly a good step from the political parties of Pakistan but it is not enough because this issue needs to be raised by every Muslim country and also by the human right organizations all over the world.
