LAHORE: Expressing deep regret over the “massacre and inhumane treatment” being accorded to the Burmese Muslim community in Myanmar, Jamaat-e-Islami  (JI) chief Syed Munawar Hasan demanded the Pakistani government to call the Myanmar ambassador and lodge a severe protest against it.

In a statement issued on Saturday, the party chief demanded that Pakistan should also submit a requisition to summon a General Assembly session in the United Nations to ponder over the situation in Myanmar.

He deplored that more than 4 million Muslims were facing terrorism and fanaticism in its extreme form but the international community had turned a blind eye to the issue. “Hundreds of thousands of Muslims in Myanmar are being forced to turn away from Islam and migrate to other countries,” he added.

He appealed to the international community to play its due role to safeguard the fundamental human rights in Myanmar as such incidents were a slap on the so-called civilised world society.

He also called on the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to take immediate measures to stop the massacre in Myanmar.

He further said that the UN should give up its double standard against the Muslim community and take notice of the violation of basic human rights in Myanmar.

    Torturing civilians can’t be justifies regardless of the faith or ethnicity/ The problem is, ‘Muslims’ have made themselves equal to a naughty boy who gets blamed regardless of who is at fault. Unfortunately, the world has become insensitive to the killings of the Muslims. It only sees killing by the Muslims. Who is to blame? Well, you don’t need to be rocket scientist to figure that out.

    It is just propaganda against Muslims and Pakistan that holds no water. India has conducted hundreds and thousands of pogroms which it is an expert in pushing under the carpet and no body talks about it.

    It is also a notorious breaker of the international laws and has invaded and conquered illegally Hyderabad, Kashmir, Juna Gadh and Daman and Deu. Pakistan has done nothing of the sort.

The JI should demand the United Nations take notice of the situation in Karachi and the genocide going on Baluchistan in which the Pakistani army and government of course plays a prominent role. To this list JI should add the atrocities committed by the Pakistani Army and Air force that has no qualms using air force jets and helicopter gunships to strafe and murder innocent Muslims all in the name of fighting terrorism.

    Aung San Suu Kyi was given a nobel peace prize by Hillary Clinton not to long ago. Anywhere we see opression against people, it is mostly backed or empowered by Zio-American establishments through puppet regimes, thats why they remain quite about it. Weather its Myanmar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, their respective governments tend to stay quite about it because they’re doing it to show obedience to their western masters. As for Munawwar Hassan, your tongue does not have the courage to speak when people in your own country are massacred with heads chopped solely because of being shia muslims. This is a perfect definition of hypocrisy.

    @Syed Shah:
    Blatant denial is an old JI trick from opposing creation of Pakistan to Al-Badr and As-Shams in Bengal to collaborating with army against sitting democratically elected government. Unfortunately for JI all of it is well documented as well as JI’s efforts over years in increasing radicalisation in Pakistan causing great harm to moderates and minorities.

    @Umer:
    Agreed 100%. Forget the hypocracy of not condemning Pakistani home killings, but for an organization that allegedly was the second largest contributor to the massacres in Bangladesh’s independence, to raise a voice for Bengali Burmese minority is opportunistic.

    As someone said earlier, JI leaders are being tried in Bangladesh for war-crimes. Please study that before commenting.

    I don’t know the past and the history of JI but this time it is doing the right thing. Muslims please unite in the cause. Be one Ummah. Support our brothers and sisters with your wealth and might. We are one body and we are suffering. Please forget the past and spend in Allah’s cause. And if you can’t do that, Pray! May Allah have mercy. Please don’t drag others down. Do what u can and leave the rest on Allah.

    At least someone is raising voice against this massacre.When we know there is media blackout then its our responsibility to spread this news as much possible if know one going to raise the voice against it the question is who will ? .Who is doing this ? .and their is lots of criticism against.What does this mean that we should even stop verbally speaking about any massacre until our own country is cleaned and rectified ? total nonsense . Its really bad time for muslims around the world and truth will prevail by the grace of Allah.

    well, mullahs and munawar hussain should first rebuild the bamiyan Buddha statues in afghanistan destroyed by the muslim talibans and also apologise to the world for their misdeeds. in a little way, this will repute their credibility to speak for the Muslims persecuted in different parts of the world, if there are any. remember mullahs, what goes around comes around.
    Also before looking out, look back within your own country Pakistan, where minorities like Hindus and Christians are systematically persecuted to be coerced into adopting Islam or leave the country.
    Muslims in Burma are in a much better condition. They are not coerced into accepting another religion. They are just asked to leave the country!! Definitely, action will be taken if you don’t obey the junta, just like you take you dirty MuzziesRecommend
