Police on Friday foiled the protest march of Abdul Qayoom Wani led Employees Jointly Action Committee (EJAC) and detained scores of its members after they tried to march towards the UNO office here to mark a protest against the brutalities on Rohingya Muslims.
EJAC president along with scores of its members wearing black clothes and badges assembled at Sher-e-Kashmir Park Lal Chowk here.
Amid pro-Rohingya Muslims sloganeering, the employees were holding banners and placards depicting anti-Myanmar slogans.
Saying that the killing of Rohingya Muslims occurring at Myanmar is the outcome of the silence maintained by the world community and Muslim rulers, Wani said that the International community must intervene into this big humanitarian issue to stop it forthwith.
He said that Muslims rulers must raise their concern over such issue to ensure the safety and security of every Muslim in any part of the country.
“We have observed this day as the black day to show solidarity with the victims of Burma,” he said.
He added that Muslim countries must unite over this issue and should play their role to punish the killers of Muslims across the globe. “It stands the moral and religious obligation of Muslim countries to stand with the Burma Muslims and to stop the atrocities that are being committed on them,” they said.
Meanwhile, the protesters later tried to march towards the UNO office here but the police did not allow them to proceed onwards.
Police after disallowing their protest detained scores of its members and lodged them at Police Station Kothi Bagh.
