ISLAMABAD/Mecca: Governor Punjab Malik Rafiq Rajwana, while expressing solidarity with the Rohingya Muslims, has said that Pakistan always support the oppressed Muslims across the globe on diplomatic and international level.

The delegation, on behalf of Global Rohingya Centre and Arakan Rohingya Unison, briefed the Governor about the ongoing serious violation of Human Rights in Myanmar related to recent Boat Crises and situation in the IDP Camps.

Rohingya leaders were of the view that denial of Myanmar nationality is the root cause of all the miseries, Rohingya Muslims are facing there, including migration attempts to neighbouring countries, human trafficking, and loss of lives and property, saying that exclusion of Rohingya Muslim votes for the upcoming Elections needs urgent attention of International community.

The Governor Punjab was deeply saddened to know the first-hand information about the discoveries of mass-graves of poor Rohingya Muslims in the border areas of Thailand and neighbouring countries and termed it as major crime against the humanity.
