Stop brutal acts against Rohingyas: OIC

Astana, Kazakhstan, Sep 12: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) expressed grave concern over the systematic brutal acts perpetrated by security forces against the Rohingya Muslim community in Myanmar, according to Saudi Gazette report. These constitute a serious and blatant violation of international law, said the OIC after a meeting called to discuss the atrocities against the Rohingya, according to Saudi Gazette. The OIC meeting called upon the government of Myanmar to accept the UN Human Rights Council's fact-finding mission to conduct a thorough and independent investigation into all alleged violations of international human rights law and to bring the perpetrators to justice. The OIC meeting also urged the government of Myanmar to honor its obligations under international law and human rights covenants, and to take all measures to immediately halt acts of dispersion and discriminatory practices against Rohingya Muslims, as well as the continuous attempts to obliterate their Islamic culture and identity.
