Srinagar: Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Syed Ali Geelani on Monday expressed ‘deep anguish and outrage’ over the killings of Muslims in Burma, asking the international human rights organizations and the Muslims nations to break silence and come to their rescue.
Expressing his deep concern and anguish over “the atrocities being unleashed on the Muslims of Burma and miserable condition of the thousands of stranded Rohingya Muslims,” Geelani appealed the governments of the Muslim countries especially the governments of Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Iran and Turkey to raise this issue in the UNO and use their influence to build the world consensus against this criminal character of the Myanmar government.
“The so-called human rights and democratic champions of the world are following double standards with regard to the Muslims and don’t play any effective role in stopping the cruelties unleashed on them. The Rohingya Muslims are facing the worst kind of state terrorism and the Burmese government is carrying out genocide of Rohingya Muslims,” he said.
“These are those unfortunate humans who have become strangers in their own land and the communal and fascist government is killing them, Geelani Sahab said, adding that Pakistan, that has a special status in the Muslim world, has an added responsibility to take effects steps to ensure protection of the suffering Muslims in nay part of the world.”
“The so-called big democratic and human rights champions of the world are maintaining a criminal silence over the condition of the oppressed Muslim population of Burma. Lakhs of Rohingya Muslims have been left homeless and shelterless but no one is ready to even talk about them. The Buddhist government of Burma is unlashing atrocities over the minority community there from last many years and they are openly killing them ruthlessly,” he added.
