    ANKARA – Turkish
    Parliamentary Human Rights Commission began to investigate the violence which
    targeted Muslims last year in Rakhine, a province of Myanmar.

    Chairman of Turkish
    Parliamentary Human Rights Commission Ayhan Sefer Ustun explained to the AA
    correspondent the preparations for reporting the violence against Rohingya
    Muslims which started last summer.

    Emphasizing the
    importance of AA’s sharing news, videos photographs from the region, Ustun said
    “we learned the developments in the region from AA. It helped us react
    quickly.”

    Criticizing the
    silence of the world and actions of Buddhist monks, Ustun stated that “The
    speeches of Buddhist Monks were far superior than Hitler’s”.

    Ustun indicated
    that if the conditions were suitable, he would visit Rakhine.
