Take note of Muslims persecution in Burma: Mirwaiz to OIC
Expresses concern over frequent fire incidents in shrines
Srinagar, July 20: Asking Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) to take note of “persecution” of Muslims in Burma, Hurriyat Conference (M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday said that imprisoning Kashmiris and deploying thousands of soldiers belie the claims of normalcy and improvement in situation in Kashmir.
Addressing the Friday congregation at historic Jamia Masjid here, Mirwaiz said: “ Putting hundreds of Kashmiris behind bars ad leaders under house arrest, curbs on offering Namaz, locking Masjid, and patrolling of forces on roads does not signify normalcy or improvement in the situation of Kashmir, but symbolizes war.
On one hand, government makes tall claims of peace and prosperity while on the other hand they “terrorize people to crush the voice of dissent,” he said.
Expressing concern over the frequent fires in the shrines of the Valley, Mirwaiz said there seems a systematic pattern behind these incidents.
“It is a matter of concern for all of us that our shrines are being deliberately targeted are being and their seems to be a pattern behind this conspiracy,” he said that people in general and Mohalla Committees in particular should wake up to the situation.
“Such incidents highlight the irresponsibility of government towards protecting these sacred structures,” he added.
Mirwaiz also asked OIC to ensure safety of lives and property of Muslims in Burma.
Pertinently, Muslims in Burma have been subject to attacks - including rape, property destruction, and unlawful killings - by not only majority, but also by state security services, a report by Amnesty International says.
