WHERE HUMANITY COMES TO DIE
Within the past two months, fanatic Buddhists have killed over 1,000 people in Arakan. According to a report by the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (İHH) based on refugees from Arakan that are seeking shelter in Bangladesh, for years there have been systematic efforts to alienate the Muslims in Arakan and as a result are being subjected to violence by fanatic Buddhists.
İHH Arakan Regional Coordinator Sait Demir states that they are trying to take all official and humanitarian based initiatives possible in order to make the voice of the Muslims from Arakan heard throughout the world because there is a tragedy of humanity ongoing at present in the camps where they are trying to take shelter.
Demir explains that over 100,000 people have had to desert their homes in Arakan. The UN and the EU's monitors are not able to relay the truth of the situation. They speak with people in police custody; however the Muslims from Arakan are scared to tell the truth in front of security forces, because dozens have already been killed thus far for doing so. Meanwhile, fanatic Buddhists have decided to shut down all mosques in Arakan, making yesterday the last time the Friday Prayer ceremony will be held.
