Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Sayyed Imam Ali Khamenei strongly criticized he silence and inaction of the global community and the so-called human rights advocates over atrocities carried out against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
Addressing a group of clerics in Tehran, Imam Khamenei said the Muslim countries should put more political and economic pressures on the cruel government of Myanmar, urging these governments to take practical measures.
“Of course, practical measures don’t mean military deployments. Rather, they (Islamic governments) have to increase their political, economic, and trade pressure on Myanmar’s government and cry out against these crimes in international organizations.”
The Islamic Republic of Iran should declare its stance against oppression in every corner of the world ‘explicitly and courageously’, the Supreme Leader said.
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Sayyed Imam Ali Khamenei described as wrong trying to reduce Myanmar predicament to a religious conflict between Muslims and Buddhists.
The massacre of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar is a political issue as it has been orchestrated by the government in the country headed by Aung San Suu Kyi a ruthless woman and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, the Supreme Leader said.
“In fact, what is happening in Myanmar has killed the Nobel Peace Prize.”
The killing of Muslims in Myanmar is taking place in front of the eyes of the Muslim nations, global community and hypocritical and dishonest governments as well as the so-called human rights advocates, Imam Khamenei noted.
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Sayyed Imam Ali Khamenei went on to criticize the Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres for paying lip service and just condemning the Muslims genocide in Myanmar.
