Cairo – 6 September 2017: “Islamophobia watch” observatory affiliated to Dar al-Ifta al Misriyyah – The Egyptian foundation for religious verdicts - warned of the danger of planting explosives on the borders of Bangladesh by the Myanmar authorities, the official Facebook page of Islamophobia Watch stated on Wednesday.
According to the statement, sources from the Bangladesh government said that the Myanmar authorities have been working for three days planting explosives on the borders with Bangladesh in order to prevent Rohingya Muslims from returning to Myanmar.
The sources clarified that the Bangladeshi government will file a formal grievance on planting such explosives by its borders, the statement added.
Roughly 500 Rohingya Muslims were killed in Myanmar by the army, and more than 125,000 were forced to flee to neighboring Bangladesh, causing a huge humanitarian crisis, the statement mentioned.
The observatory called on the international community, the United Nations and the Security Council to promptly adopt necessary measures against Myanmar authorities to end the organized genocide of Rohingya Muslims.
The statement said that the United Nations considers Rohingya Muslims the minority facing the most prosecution in the world. They are also considered foreigners in Myanmar, and suffer from discrimination in different fields in the form of forced labor, blackmailing, applying restraints on their freedom of movement, in addition to not being able to get proper education and healthcare.
