Lahore, Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed Mnawar Hasan, has appealed to the nation to observe Friday, August 3 as Solidarity Day with the Myanmar Muslims against the atrocities being perpetrated on them by the armed forces and Buddhist hooligans.
He has called upon the OIC and the world community to adopt immediate measures to stop the massacre of the Myanmar Muslims. He has urged the government to requisition a special UN General Assembly meeting on the issue and demand an end to the killing of the Burmese Muslims.
In a statement here on Thursday, he said that the UN and other champions of world peace were totally blind to the genocide of the Burmese Muslims and the repeated incidents of their burning alive. He said that about four million Muslims were facing the worst type of persecution and terrorism. They were ready to migrate to save their lives but were being taken in custody and forced to apostate.
He expressed the view that if immediate attention was not given to the matter, it would end up in a major human tragedy.
Syed Munawar Hasan said that the atrocities being perpetrated on the Burmese Muslim were unparalleled. But unfortunately, the world media, the UNO and Human Rights bodies were completely silent. The Muslim rulers were also criminally silent.
He urged the people to join the rallies tomorrow in large numbers to arouse the world conscience on the issue and also awaken the cowardly and shameless Muslim rulers.
