The Muslim World League (MWL) has stressed that the Muslim Rohingyas in Burma face a brutality and genocide where the international community monitors the situation there.

In a statement issued by the MWL on crimes of the terrorist elements in Burma against the Muslim minority, the MWL stressed that these crime represent one of the worst terrorist images, confirming that the international silence gives strong pretexts for negative perceptions of what the international system must do in fighting terrorism and eradicating it in all its forms and manifestations.

The Muslim World League calls upon the international community to take a firm and effective decision to confront the terrorist massacres in Burma in the same manner as its firm and effective stance against ISIS and Al-Qaeda in order to give our world justice and peace.

In accordance with information obtained by the MWL since 25/8/2017, the numbers highlight the outrageous situation face by Rohingya Muslims as follows:

- 6,334 Victims.

- 8,349 Injuries.

- 500 Raped women.

- 103 Burned villages.

- 23,250 Burned houses.

- 335,000 Persons without house, homeland and properties.

- 24,166 Displaced families arrived in Bangladesh.

- 145,000 Displaced people arrived in Bangladesh.

- 190,000 Awaiting displaced people in the borders.

- 250 Mosques were destroyed.

- 80 Schools and institutes were destroyed.

The MWL added that all mosques, hospitals and institutes were closed. The statement denounced lack of active action by the international community towards it.

The Muslim World League appreciates the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's role towards the issue of Rohingyas at the international levels and the UN Human Rights Council where the Kingdom donated $50 million through health and educational rehabilitation programs. Since 1948, the Kingdom has hosted about 300 thousand in its territories. As a response to its calls, the United Nations condemned continuous violations against Rohingyas.
