    Turkish youth in Melbourne embrace Rohingyans

    Young Turks used every means possible to take care of needs of Rohingya people settled in various parts of Melbourne

    Turkish youth in Australian province Melbourne embraced the Rohingya Muslims who fled the humanity tragedy in Myanmar.

    A group of 20 young Turks used every means possible to take care of the needs of Rohingya people settled in various parts of the city including providing food, clothing,furniture and money.

    Apart from all the initiatives to collect money, the group hosted a fast breaking meal and charity night where they called on families to foster for a Rohingya family.

    Adem Temel, organizer of the charity group, drew a similarity between Rohingya Muslims and the migration or journey of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Medina, adding that they should act like the Ansar, “helpers” and embrace the displaced Rohingyans.

    Nur Alum, a Rohinya Muslim who has fled the violence in Myanmar, said the situation was still horrific and he was in prison for seven years just to attempt to travel to the capital as a university student.

    Hoping the violencewould end soon, Alum said he witnessed killing, burning and raping of Muslims.
