Eydhafushi fund raiser for Myanmar Rohingya Muslims
A fund box is to be open in Baa atoll capital Eydhafushi island to help Rohingya Muslims persecuted by Myanmar’s law enforcement authorities.
Eydhafushi Council’s President Tholal Abdul Rahman said that the funds raised will go to assist Rohingya Muslims who have crossed the border and entered Bangladesh as refugees.
“The fund box will first be kept at the ‘bodu miskiy’ mosque. It will be opened after the Juma prayer. The fund box will be open for a week at other areas frequented by people,” Tholal said.
More than 140,000 Rohingya Muslims are in Bangladesh, with more exiting out of Myanmar, to escape from inhumane atrocities by Myanmar’s law enforcement authorities and Buddhist clergy.
The ‘gunooth’ prayer is now being recited during ‘namaaz’ prayers across the whole Maldives archipelago.
Persecution includes beheading and arson against Rohingya Muslims’ property. Many thousands of Rohingya Muslims are migrating to Bangladesh to escape the persecution. World leaders and organizations are being targeted for criticism because of turning a blind eye to the plight of Rohingya Muslims.
