Hurriyat (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has strongly condemned “ethnic cleansing” of Rohingya Muslims by Myanmar government and called for protests on Friday against the silence by the world against the execution.
Mirwaiz tweeted, “Strongly condemn ethnic cleansing of #Rohingya Muslims #Kashmir to observe #SolidarityDay with victims & protest world silence on Friday Sep8.”
A spokesman of the organisation in a statement said that to show support and express solidarity with the Rohingya Muslims, people of Kashmir will observe coming Friday, September 8 as “Solidarity Day” with them.
Pertinently, several religious organisations in a joint statement strongly condemned the persecution and ethnic cleansing of the minority Muslim Rohingya by the Myanmar government.
“On that day, post Friday prayers peaceful protest will be held and a joint resolution framed by the MMU and others, will be passed in all masjids and shrines of the Valley which will reflect Kashmiri people’s unanimous support to the Rohingyas,” the joint statement said.
They said the Organization of Islamic countries should break its “criminal silence” over such a serious issue confronting a large Muslim population of Rohingya and play its role to stop their killings and persecution by the Myanmar state.
