Indian Muslim Federation delegation meets with Indian High Commissioner to discuss persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar/Burma

26th September 2017

A delegation from the Indian Muslim Federation (UK) met with the Indian High Commission in London, 26th September 2017, and presented a letter for the Minister of External Affairs, Srimati Sushma Swaraj. The letter highlighted the serious concern amongst Indian nationals in the UK at the plight of the Rohingya community in Burma/Myanmar. More specifically, they highlighted the serious human rights abuses taking place in Burma by its military and on-going attacks against the Rohingya, which the United Nations recently termed, " a textbook example of ethnic cleansing".

The delegation also requested the Indian Government to extend all efforts to assist the Rohingya and to accomodate refugees fleeing persecution. They expressed their hope that the Indian government would undertake its ongoing commitment to the Universal Declaration of human Rights and the Refugee Convention, by assisting the Rohingya and calling on the Burmese/Myanmar government to cease all operations and bring the perpetrators to justice.
