KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi staged a protest demonstration against the genocide of Muslims in Burma, demanding global community to impose restrictions on Burma, due to the government-backed slaughter of the Muslim community.
A large number of Burma's Arakani people, besides a large number of Karachiites, belonging to all walks of life participated in the demonstration to express solidarity with their Muslims brothers in Burma, who face tyranny by Buddhists extremists. Protesters, carrying placards and banners, chanted slogans against the silence of the Pakistani government and dual standards of the global community. Addressing protesters, JI Karachi Amir Muhammad Hussain Mehnati, highlighted and criticised the dual standards of international powers. He raised the question that why international powers kept mum over the issue of massive violence of human rights and genocide of Muslims in Burma, when they had capability to intervene and get East Tamoor separated within few weeks.
He also questioned the organisations of human rights why they don't raise their voice over murders of hundreds of Muslims women, children, and men in a barbaric manner. He said that when such NGOs could brought the issue of usurpation of rights of a person under global limelight then why they were avoiding to highlight the issue of innocent people deprived of even the right of living.
Mehnati said that Burma's opposition leader, surfaced as leader for justice and equity, also expressed extremely partial behavior as she even refused to admit tens of thousands of Muslims as citizens in Burma and avoided to even issue a statement in their favor in that pretext. Arakani community representatives in Karachi including Maulana Zafar Azad, Tahir Arakani and Noor Hussain Arakani also expressed their views on the occasion. The shed light on the present condition of their community men in Burma and said that besides slaughtering tens of thousands of Muslims, rape and sexual assault were also being committed as militancy tool against Muslims. They also criticised the illogical and criminal negligence of the international community in general and Muslim world in particular.
