URGENT: On Sept. 16, Rally For Rohingya Muslims

Al-salamu ‘alaikum,

The U.N. refugee agency says that 123,000 Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh in the last 10 days after the latest Burmese military attacks against the Rohingya.

There are another 400,000 Rohingya Muslims estimated to be trapped in forests and mountains as the military continues its attacks from the ground and the air.

UN aid agencies say that Burma continues to block the delivery of food, water and medicine to the Rohingya.

The Burmese always blame Rohingya for attacks they launch. This time they say an unknown group, ARSA, attacked first. However, weeks before the alleged attacks: the UN, US Congress, Amnesty International, and Burma Task Force all warned a government operation was imminent. Bangladesh even closed its border in expectation of fleeing Rohingya refugees.

Rohingyas are an indigenous people of Burma living in their ancestral lands. Their citizenship was taken away by the Burmese military in 1982. The UN regards them as ‘the most persecuted people in the world.’

Worldwide Silent Demonstration For Rohingyas

As the UN general assembly begins in mid September, Burma Task Force is calling for a day of worldwide silent demonstrations to protest the genocide of Rohingyas. The demonstrations will be held on Saturday, September 16.

If you are, or would like to, organize a demonstration in your city or locality contact us: info@burmamuslims.org. We will help with resources!

Burma Task Force has developed Khutba Points that can be used and shared with your Imam for his Friday sermon to address the situation of the Rohingya.
