Jamat-i-Islami tool out rallies on Friday to condemn the massacre of Muslims in Myanmar, said a press release issued by the party.
Syed Munawar Hasan, addressing the Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, said that the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) and Muslim rulers across the world should stop the bloodshed of the Arakan Muslims.
Had such brutality been perpetrated against any other community, he said, the world media and the UN would have cried themselves hoarse “But no one is taking notice of the bloodshed of Muslims,” he said.
More than 80 people have died in clashes between Buddhist Rakhine and Muslim Rohingya this month.
