The government of Pakistan should summon the Ambassador of the Myanmar to express strong protest over the ongoing genocide of the Muslims in minority in Myanmar. The political and religious parties of the country should get united on the issue of genocide of the Muslims of Myanmar and participate in the protest march.

Mahenti said that the Government of Pakistan should summon the Ambassador of the Myanmar and convey to the Myanmar Government of the concerns about the genocide of the Muslims under the auspices of the Myanmar Government. The genocide was being carried out for last two months but none of the international institution or the country raised its voices against the genocide. The Government of Pakistan should give a two month ultimatum to the Ambassador and if the genocide was still unchecked then the Ambassador of the Myanmar should be asked to leave the country.

He said that the double standard of the international community was already manifested as none voiced against the perpetrators and in favour of the innocent and helpless Muslims. However, JI would as usual continue raising voice in condemnation to the atrocities against the Muslims and against human rights violations anywhere in the world.

He invited all political parties including the ruling PPP to join JI in its long march of protest against the genocide of the Muslims of Myanmar.

Dr Abdul Wasay Shakir in his address said that the Government should disconnect the diplomatic relations with the Government of Myanmar. He said that the UNO and OIC should convene sessions on the issue of genocide of the Muslims in Myanmar and sanctions should be imposed on Myanmar.

Masses observe solidarity with Myanmar Muslims

Protest rallies were held in Lahore, Peshawar, Quetta, Karachi and other towns and cities and the speakers urged upon the world community and the Muslim rulers to adopt necessary steps to protect the Myanmar Muslims against the Buddhist hooligans and the army.

Addressing a large Friday congregation at Mansoora, Syed Munawar Hasan deplored that the world at large was ignorant of the miserable plight of the Myanmar Muslims. He stressed upon the Pakistan government to lodge protest with the world body over the genocide of the Burmese Muslims and offer asylum to those who were willing to migrate to this country.

He slated Bangladesh government’s warning to shoot down any one from Myanmar trying to cross into their country and termed it un-Islamic and even inhuman. .

The JI Ameer said that the present world recognized the right of animals but it was not ready to give any rights to the Muslims who were being prosecuted all over.

JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch, addressing a rally at Multan Road, said that the United Nations had double standards. The UN promptly divided Sudan to please a handful of Christians. On the other hand, the Muslims of  Palestine and Kashmir were facing the brutalities of the Hindu and Zionists for decades but the UN had done nothing  to resolve these issues.
