‘Burma Muslim massacre’: JI calls on government to lodge protest

Munawar Hassan urges government to submit requisition to UN to ponder over the situation.

Ppi July 21, 2012

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.
