Imran Khan writes open letter to UNSG on plights of Rohingya Muslims

Imran Khan writes open letter to UNSG on plights of Rohingya Muslims
September 08, 2017

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has written an open letter to UN Secretary General on the distressing plight of Rohingya refugees and persecution of Rohingyas in Myanmar.

Imran Khan condemned the silence of the United Nations on these issues, writing that the UN had failed in protecting its fundamental principles and human rights.

He said that it was heartbreaking to witness the silence of the UN and international community on the persecution of Rohingyas Muslims since the 1970s.

Khan also wrote that the UN had failed in stopping persecution and genocide of the Muslims in Myanmar.
He called on the UN chief to move the UNSC to end the persecution and genocide of the Rohingyas within Myanmar and to bring an end their inhumane plight.

The Rohingya Muslims flee Rakhine state in Myanmar in droves each year to escape poverty and persecution in a region where their movements are controlled and they lack access to jobs or basic services.

The exodus increased dramatically after 2012 when scores were killed in communal bloodletting involving Buddhist nationalists in the state.
