Appeals
OIC, UN, AI, ICRC To Intervene
Srinagar,
Mar 25:The Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Monday
expressed serious concern over the “systematic ethnic cleansing” of Muslims in
Burma by the majority Buddhist community.
 “A humanitarian crisis has erupted in Burma
and its ripple effects could be felt in all Muslim nations. The Buddhist
rioters are burning mosques, houses and schools of the Muslim minority
community. The Burmese government’s inaction to stop the Buddhist onslaught on
minority Rohignya Muslims is tantamount to a heinous crime,” said Mirwaiz said
in a statement today, demanding immediate end to violence against Muslims in
Burma.   
 “If arson and slaughtering of Muslims and
looting of their property continues in Burma, the situation is expected to take
a serious turn,” Mirwaiz said, regretting the silence maintained by the OIC and
international community over the communal violence in Burma against Muslims.
Mirwaiz appealed to OIC, UN, Amnesty International, ICRC, and other human
rights groups to take serious note of violence against Muslims in Burma. He
said the international rights organizations should put pressure on Burmese
government to stop violence against Muslims.
