Tehrani worshipers protest violence against Rohingya Muslims
Worshipers staged a demonstration in Tehran on Friday to express their outrage at the horrible crimes committed against the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, APA reported citing IRNA.
During the rally, held in the Iranian capital after the Friday prayers, the protesters chanted slogans against the Myanmar government.
Meanwhile, Tehran’s substitute Friday prayers leader urged Islamic countries to condemn the atrocities against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
Addressing thousands of worshipers in his second sermon, Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahedi Kermani censured the silence of international community on the ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Myanmar.
More than a quarter of a million mostly Rohingya refugees have fled from Myanmar into Bangladesh, the United Nations said on Thursday (Sep 7), as bodies washed up after boats sank attempting to cross the river that divides the countries.
In the last two weeks alone 164,000 mostly Rohingya civilians have fled to Bangladesh, overwhelming refugee camps that were already bursting at the seams.
