Rohingya Emergency Appeal
More than 400 have lost their lives.
The UK Islamic Mission wholeheartedly condemns the indiscriminate destruction and ethnic cleansing happening in Rakhine, Myanmar. The displacement of over 150,000 people and then within the last two weeks, the burning of whole villages and the brutal assault on human life is nothing short of than crimes against humanity. The young, the old and the weak are facing wholesale and relentless terror on a mass scale.
We appeal to the international community and in particular to the Myanmar government to take immediate steps to stop the killing and destruction. Moreover, urgent initiatives need to be taken to provide complete and full protection for lives and livelihoods, to offer shelter and subsistence to those who have been displaced and to enforce the rule of law to bring those committing terror and criminal acts to justice. Every life is priceless and everything needs to be done to safeguard it.
