He condemned the brutality of Myanmar government against Muslim women, men and children adding that so far a total of 30,000 innocent Muslim were martyred whereas 300 mosques were locked by the Buddhists.
At least 90,000 Muslims, who were managed to flee Burma, were stranded along with the borders of Bangladesh and Malaysia, but, unfortunately Muslim rulers, the OIC and the UN kept criminal mum over the plight of the Muslims.

Mehanti demanded the religious and political parties of the country to hold joint protest march against the genocide of Muslims in Myanmar, saying that Jamaat-e-Islami has always raised the voice for the oppressed people of the world.
“Muslim countries and rulers should raise their voice in support of Muslims of Myanmar,” he added.
