The Nobel Laureate is on an official visit to India, these days.

It is to be noted that thousands of Muslim were massacred and lakhs rendered homeless in what has been called as a blood bath since early this year. United Nations have called them one of the most oppressed minorities in Asia.

Speaking to the press Maulana Mahmood Daryabadi, the Secretary General of the All India Ulema Council said “Aung San Su Kyi has failed to rise above ethnic divide, she is an acclaimed activist but when it comes to speaking against the crime and massacre of Muslims she remained mute silent.”

“We demand that our Indian Government should confront Aung San Su Kyi with the issue of security of Muslims in Burma,” he added.

Aung San Su Kyi who is now a member of the Burmese parliament herself has been a victim of state oppression and has championed the cause of human rights.

Maulana Daryabadi further added that the Muslim organisations led by All India Ulema Council shall pressurize the Indian Government to raise the issue of resettlement and security of those displaced by the violence and guarantees for their protection.

When TCN asked Maulana Daryabadi how he plans to pressurise the Indian government to take up the issue further, he said: “We have written letters to express our concerns…We will decide on future course of action, based on the responses we receive.”
