He also appealed to Nawaz Sharif to call an emergence conference and also call for an emergency OIC as well as s UN Security Council meeting. This Muslim issue has tyo be made an international issue.
The Indians are behind the Burmese in this genocide of Muslims in Burma. The stance that India, America and the western world have regarding the genocide of Burmese Muslims is an act of clear enmity against Islam.
He further said that if Muslims are going to be continuously killed and women are going to be raped in this manner, and if children carry on getting slaughtered or made homeless orphans the way they are now, Muslims also have the right to defend themselves.
If we let go of the main issues and start focusing on befriending India and making deals with them for electricity, we will never see success.

Hindustan was conquered for the sake of one Muslim woman in distress, and today, the entire Muslim population in Burma is in distress. but Muslim rulers are not making a single effort against the atrocities.
