ISLAMABAD: The federal cabinet on Thursday condemned what it called the cold-blooded and callous genocide of innocent Rohingya Muslims under the direct patronage of state institutions of Myanmar.

“Government of Pakistan condemns the cold-blooded and callous genocide of innocent Rohingya Muslims, including women, children and even infants under the direct patronage of state institutions of Myanmar,” a statement released after the meeting stated. A resolution passed by the cabinet maintained that the brutal and barbaric acts perpetrated against the unarmed civilian population not only constitute state terrorism but also question the collective human conscience across nations and societies. “These atrocities have also revealed the appalling hypocrisy of the democratic leadership of Myanmar,” the statement said.

“We call upon Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to take immediate steps to stop the atrocities being committed in Myanmar where her party is in power,” the resolution demanded, adding, “We also call upon the United Nations to take the lead, which it must under its mandate, in stopping immediately the genocide of Rohingya Muslims by Myanmar.”
