New Delhi: According to the recent report of Amnesty International, Rohingya Muslim militants in Myanmar killed dozens of Hindu civilians during attacks last August. The report has raised many doubts in the minds of justice-loving people. The report shows that it was communal riots; if it was a communal riot, the Hindus and Muslims were not forced to live on the borders of Bangladesh and India. If the Muslims had killed Hindus then why the Burmese’s government remained silent so far.

General Secretary Muslim Majlis-e-Amal, Syed Tariq Bukhari said if any such report has been released it is meaningless. It is being tried to give communal colour to the Muslim massacre, while it was the worst example of state terrorism in which Hindus were also killed along with the Muslims. He said never in the social media reports the Hindu killing by Muslims was mentioned. The report tried to suppress oppressors’ voice, he said.

Chairman Delhi Minority Commission Dr Zafarul Islam said that such report cannot be believed. He said Hindus of the region are also called Rohingyas; they were also massacred and the army was responsible for it. Burmese’s forces are trying to give it communal colour to save themselves.

Former general secretary Jamaitul Muslimeen Mahmood Sayeed Bilali said it is a planned conspiracy to save the culprits. The world saw how the Rohingya Muslims were tortured, young innocent children were thrown into the fire, women were raped which was all done by the military and government. Instead of providing justice to the oppressed Muslims, they are declared criminals.
