Thousands of Myanmar Muslims killed for not converting to Budhism:
Thursday, July 26, 2012
JAMAAT-e-Islami Syed Munawar Hasan has expressed grave concerns that Myanmar Muslims were being massacred after they rejected the Buddhist pressure to convert to Buddhism.
He appealed to the world community, especially the Muslim rulers, to exert diplomatic pressure on Myanmar government to stop its atrocities on Muslim population and protect their basic human rights.
He said this in a statement after a three-member delegation of Myanmar Muslims called on him at Mansoora on Wednesday and apprised him of the plight of Myanmar Muslims and the brutalities being perpetrated on them.
Syed Munawar Hasan said tens of thousands of Myanmar Muslims were lying at the borders of Burma and Bangladesh. They badly need financial assistance. He said 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 were completely silent.
Syed Munawar Hasan said the JIP had set up a relief fund for the Myanmar Muslims. He appealed to the well-to-do people and philanthropists to donate generously for the help of their brethrens facing unprecedented atrocities. Earlier, leader of the delegation, Noor Husain Arakani, told the JI Ameer that Myanmar Muslims were being forced to convert to Buddhism, and on their refusal, they were being subjected to untold brutalities.
They have been asked to eat pork and drink liquor. Cases of gang-rape have increased. At some places, the Muslims were being burnt alive. They were even not allowed to use mobile phones. In fact, the Burmese government wanted to clear Burma of the Muslim population, he added.
APML: All Pakistan Muslim League Secretary General Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif urged the Muslim countries to rescue the Muslims from the cruelties of Buddhist community and Burmese armed forces.
All Pakistan Muslim League Secretary General said that over 500 Muslim villages had been incinerated during the last two months and thousands of people exterminated. The zulm of the Burmese Muslims at the hands of the Buddhist mobs is limitltss. Yet all human rights organisations have adopted a criminal silence over the genocide. Saif also urged the government of Pakistan to raise voice for the poor Muslims at the international forums. The whole Muslim world should join hands to get the poor Burmese out of their distress and misery, he added.
WASHINGTON, Feb 9 (IslamOnline) - Around 15-20 Rohingya Muslims have been killed in Moley Phara town of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), the International Islamic News Agency (IINA) reported Friday.
Eyewitnesses claim that a group of militant Buddhists came to the predominantly Muslim area and started a fight with locals.
They later torched a number of houses as deployed police remained as bystanders and did not intervene to quell the violence. Latest reports indicate that the Myanmar military, which came much later after the event, has established control over the situation.
IINA reports, "Such acts have become the order of the day in the country, particularly in the Arakan region, where the authorities are said to be systematically trying to exterminate the Muslims by using all sorts of repressive and oppressive tactics.
"On many occasions they use monks to do their dirty work of incitement and in instilling anti-Muslim feelings."
Also send an email to the embassy of Burma to tell them to stop the zulm!
