Iran’s President Urges Myanmar to Stop Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingya Muslims

Iran’s President Urges Myanmar to Stop Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingya Muslims

Alwaght- Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has called on Myanmar to immediately stop the “inconceivable ethnic cleansing” of Rohingya Muslims in the country.

Speaking during a cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday, President Rouhani condemned Myanmar’s “brutal crimes” against Rohingya Muslims, adding that, “We are all aware of the plight of Rohingya Muslims.”

Tens of thousands—nearly 100,000—people are either displaced or killed; their corpses are set on fire and so are their homes.”

We call on the Myanmar government to end these brutal crimes and stop the army’s ongoing rampage,” Rouhani said.

The Iranian president also underscored the United Nation’s role in resolving the crisis while urging Myanmar’s neighboring countries to take action and be more welcoming to Rohingya refugees.

President Rouhani referred to the responsibilities of Islamic nations in the face of such crises plaguing the Muslim world, and said Tehran was ready to bring together Islamic governments and other Asian countries to help Rohingyas break free from the violence.

As Muslims, and as a revolutionary country, we should feel obligated to support the oppressed everywhere even if they are non-Muslims,” he added.

We are ready "to provide Rohingyas with diplomatic and humanitarian support,” Rouhani added. “Our Red Crescent Society is also prepared to help them.”

Rouhani emphasized that there is no difference between the people of Myanmar and other Muslims in the world, adding: "As a Muslim and revolutionary country, we feel responsible towards the oppressed even if they are not Muslims, and we invite the government of Myanmar, to prevent the brutal crimes against Muslims and ask the neighboring and Muslim countries to help the displaced people in Myanmar".

The European Rohingya Council announced last week that between 2,000 and 3,000 Muslims were killed in Myanmar's Rakhine state within a period of three days from 25-27 August when the country's army started its latest crackdown. Council spokeswoman Anita Schug said thousands other had been injured in what she described as a "slow-burning genocide".

"It [the situation in Rakhine] is an ongoing slow-burning genocide," Schug said, accusing Myanmar's military of being behind the deaths.

A security clampdown launched in October last year in Maungdaw, where Rohingya form the majority, led to a UN report on human rights violations by security forces that indicated crimes against humanity.
