Acting Ameer condemns ongoing genocide in Syria; calls world communities to take effective steps to stop such brutalities

Acting Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami and Ex-member of the Parliament Professor Mujibur Rahman has issued the following statement on 28th February, 2018 expressing deep concern in the wake of ongoing genocide and massacre in Syria.

“I am extremely worried and shocked at the ongoing massacre and genocide in Syria. Women-men, kids, people of old ages are becoming the regular victim of genocide over there. The war-prone government of Syria and other super powers are relentlessly violating human rights in the region to continue this genocide. We have no word to condemn this genocide.

Since 2013, the Syrian government has been conducting massive genocide. Around 5.5 million peoples have been forced to leave their houses and took shelter in various refugee camps across the region. Over 7.5 million people have become homeless. Many of them are being murdered gradually because of starvation, lethal attacks and in want of medicines. So far, 4 lac 70 thousand people have been killed. They are being murdered as the victim of world’s supreme power’s ill-politics. Nobody is there for them. But around 200 crore Muslims are living across the globe. But no one is appearing as savior to rescue these deplorable communities. In the holy Quran, in 75 number verse of Sura Nisa, Almighty Allah stated that “And what is [the matter] with you that you fight not in the cause of Allah and [for] the oppressed among men, women, and children who say, "Our Lord, take us out of this city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper?"

Massive war and violence is going on in Ghouta of Syria and also in other parts of the country. Government’s military forces are killing innocent civilians by using chemical weapons, artillery and mortar shells and other lethal weapons.

Till last 26th February, 7 hundred peoples have been killed by the attacks of the Syrian armed forces, off them 185 are women and 109 are children. Women are being raped even when they are going for collecting relief goods. These incidents indicated that how severe humanitarian crisis are going on in Syria. Some effective measures should be taken immediately to stop this genocide.

Under the circumstances, I am urging United Nations, OIC, Arab League and other international forums and also drawing attention of the world’s super powers and other peaceful democratic nations to undertake effective and swift measures to stop the ongoing massacre and genocide in Syria.”
