GENOCIDE OF ROHINGYA MUSLIMS SPREADS TO MUSLIMS IN GENERAL IN BURMA

Muslim World

The violence orchestrated by Buddhist monks in Meiktila and Mandalay in Central Burma resulted in carnage of several hundred Muslim men, women, and children and complete destruction of over 30 mosques in Meiktila, Pegu, Teggone, Yamaythin, and other cities by the Buddhist extremists. Many neighbourhoods were completely burnt to ashes. Among the hundreds of people killed there were 24 school children who were killed in a school in Mandalay as they were trying to make to safety. Mufti of the city and three teachers were also killed. 30% of the population in Meiktila and Mandalay is Muslims. They are not Rohingyas but of the same Bamar ethnic background as other Burmese. What started as the genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Burma, last June and then again in October is now spread to Muslims in general in Burma. Last month, a school in Yangon and a mosque was attacked.

The Burmese Rohingya Association of North America (BRANA), Burma Task Force USA (BTF-USA), the Myanmar Muslim Civil Right Movement (MMCRM), and the European Rohingya Council (ERC) have condemned the gruesome killings of Myanmar Muslim men, women, and children in Meiktila and Mandalay in the strongest possible terms. BRANA, BTF-USA, MMCRM, and ERC have appealed to UN, European Union, OIC, ASEAN, and the governments of US, Canada, and Australia to take immediate steps for protection of Muslim population throughout Myanmar.
