Detains scores of its members
Srinagar, Sep 08: Authorities Friday foiled the protest march Employees Jointly Action Committee (EJAC) and detained scores of its members when they tried to march towards the UNO office here to mark a protest against the brutalities on Rohingya Muslims.
EJAC president, of Abdul Qayoom Wani along with scores of its members including EJAC district president Kupwara, Mir Fayaz assembled at Sher-e-Kashmir Park Lal Chowk here.
The protesters said that the Muslims in Burma are being killed and tortured like animals. “It is unfortunate that the world community instead of raising their voice is maintaining criminal silence over such violence,” they said.
They said that it stands a duty of every Muslim country to raise their voice against such brutalities to stop the ongoing cruelty on Bumra Muslims at earliest. “We urge the Muslim countries to unite over Burma violence and raise their concern in this regard to pressurize the Myanmar government to stop such brutalities in no time,” they added.
Protesters also said the videos circulated on the social media are expressing the alarming situation in Burma. “We hope the international community will break its silence and will play its role to stop the atrocities on Burma Muslims at earliest,” they said.
Meanwhile, the protesters later tried to march towards the UNO office here at Sonwar from Sher-e-Kashmir.
However, police disallowed their march on way and detained scores of its members. (KNS)
