KARACHI - Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi chief Hussain Mehanti demanded the United Nations to intervene into the matter of Myanmar and take solid steps to stop carnage of Muslims by Buddhists.

He made this demand while addressing a protest demonstration held outside the Press Club against the Muslim genocide in Burma (Myanmar).

JI Karachi Chief termed the bloodshed in Burma a conspiracy against Muslim Ummah and said that the Jamaat-e-Islami would take stand against the said conspiracy.

“Today our mosques and other religious seminaries have been closed by the Burmese government which is an unjustified act and JI strongly condemned it,” he added.

On the occasion, he also appealed to the Organisation of Islamic Conference to send its delegation to Rangoon and other affected areas of Myanmar.

He informed that the JI has sent ration for the affected Muslim families in Bangladesh and border areas of Myanmar. “The JI has rejected the envoy who does not take any action against the atrocities with Muslim community in Burma,” he added.

Meanwhile, Mehanti has appealed to the people to vote for those who work for the welfare of Muslim Ummah and said that the JI leadership will reach in Parliament and Sindh Assembly and highlight the plight of downtrodden people.

On the occasion, Naib Ameer JI Nasrullah Shajih demanded the caretaker government to raise the issue of Myanmar Muslims on the platform of UN and OIC.

“UN does not see the atrocities being continued on the Muslims in Kashmir, Palestine, Myanmar and other parts of the world,” he questioned. He strongly condemned the genocide of Muslims in Bangladesh and Myanmar.

JI Karachi General Secretary Naseem Siddiqui while addressing the protestors said that the thousands of Muslims were being martyred by Buddhists in Myanmar and their properties, religious seminaries have also been set ablaze but the UN, OIC and other organisations of human rights do not take any appropriate action in this regard. “No role of UNO and OIC is yet to be seen against the bloodshed of Muslims in Myanmar while the President of Myanmar broke all humanitarian norms,” Siddiqui added.

On the occasion, a resolution was also presented and later approved unanimously by the participants of the rally in which it was demanded that the Pakistani government should intervene into the matter of Muslims slaughtering in Myanmar and open religious seminaries over there.

Leaders of Rohigniya Ulema Council and Myanmar leaders including Zabiullah, Qari Abdur Rasheed, Maulana Zafar Azad, Noor Hussain Arkani and others also spoke on the occasion.
