SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) — Ameer, Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has appealed to the worlds community, especially the Muslim rulers, to exert diplomatic pressure on the Burma government to stop its atrocities on Myanmar Muslims and protect their basic human rights.
He said this in a press statement after a call on by a three member delegation of Myanmar Muslims at Mansoora which apprised him of the miserable plight of the Myanmar Muslims and the brutalities being perpetrated on them.
Syed Munawar Hasan said that lakhs of Myanmar Muslims were lying at the borders of Burma and Bangladesh. They badly needed financial assistance. He said that all over the world, the Muslims were the being victimized but the plight of the Myanmar Muslims was most miserable. They were being tortured by the state machinery and the armed forces. But unfortunately, the world community, the media and the so called Human Rights bodies who raised hue and cry over the atrocities on the animals, were completely silent.
Syed Munawar Hasan said that the JIP had set up a Relief fund for the Myanmar Muslims. He appealed to the well to do and the philanthropists to donate generously for the help of their brethren facing unprecedented atrocities.
Earlier, the leader of the Delegation, Noor Husain Arakani, told the JI Ameer that the Myanmar Muslims were being forced to covert to Buddhism, and on their refusal, they were being subjected to untold brutalities. They were asked to eat pork and drink liquor. All members of the family were being kept naked during the day. Cases of gang rape had increased. At some places, the Muslims were being burnt to alive. He further said that the Burmese government had closed the Bangladesh border due to which the immigrants were facing great hardships. They were even not allowed to use mobile phones. In fact, the Burmese government wanted to clear Burma of the Muslim population, he added.—www.shafaqna.com/english
