Lashkar-e-Taiba condemns ‘oppression’ on Rohingya Muslims in Burma

Srinagar: Militant outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, on Tuesday has strongly condemned the ‘imposed oppression’ on Rohingya Muslims and said that Myanmar government’s involvement in the ‘mass genocide’ of Muslims exposes the hypocrisy of Burmese government.

“The tyranny being imposed on Muslims in Burma is a shameful act,” the outfit said in an issued statement.

As per the statement , Mahmood Shah, the LeT Chief said “that the mass genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Burma is the result of India-Burma alliance. Since Modi came into power, from Kashmir to Burma, the genocide of Muslims has strengthened by each passing day.”

“World’s humanitarian organizations including United Nations (UN) are silent on the issue. Mahmood Shah urged Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to play their positive role in rescue of Rohingya Muslims.”

Mahmood Shah appreciated the response of Pakistan on the issue and said that Pakistan is taken as representative of Muslim community worldwide.

“Pakistan must take steps including cutting any ties with Burmese Embassy. Pakistan is the one of the most prominent countries in the world who have embraced the Displaced Persons and have provided them with relief, shelter and food,” the statement further added.
