CLARIFICATION ON PLIGHT OF ROHINGYA MUSLIMS SOUGHT FROM SUU KYI

Inside India

Muslim organisations demanded clarification from Aung San Suu Kyi on the issue of state sponsored violence in Burma against Rohingya Muslims. Association for Protection of Civil Rights (APCR) with some other organisations on a joint platform “Joint Forum of the Concerned” protested in front of Lady Shri Ram College in the capital where Suu Kyi, the Nobel laureate and “champion of democracy” was delivering a lecture. Protesters displayed placards with pictures of brutal killing of Rohingyas along with the misleading and racist comments of Suu Kyi on the issue. It is to be noted that thousands of Muslims were massacred and lakhs rendered homeless in what has been called as a blood bath that started early this year. Su Kyi who is now opposition leader of the Burmese parliament herself had been the victim of state oppressions and has championed the cause of human rights, but her silence on this issue was not only surprising but condemnable.

Dr. Zafarul Islam Khan, President AIMMM, Mujtaba Farooq, convener Coordination Committee of Indian Muslims, Dr. Tasleem Ahmad Rahmani, President Muslim Political Council of India, Mohammad Ahmad, Secretary Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Maulana Abdul Wahhab Khilji, President Indian Islahi Movement, Dr. Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas, Member AIMPLB, Prof. MH Jawaharullah, President TMMK and Lateef Mohd Khan, General Sec. Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee, Hyderabad have issued a joint press release urging Suu Kyi to take the massacre of Muslims in Burma seriously and stop the military government from spilling the blood of innocent Muslims.
