OIC chief on meeting with Rohyinga cries

OIC chief on meeting with Rohyinga cries

November 17, 2013 PKT

 

YANGON: The secretary general of the worlds largest bloc of Islamic countries says meetings with members of Myanmars long-persecuted Rohingya Muslim community — chased from their homes by machete-wielding Buddhist mobs — brought him to tears.

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu made the comments as he and other members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation wrapped up a four-day visit to the country Sunday that included talks with the president, ministers, interfaith groups and U.N. agencies.

But it was the huge, emotional crowds living in trash-strewn camps outside of Sittwe — where streets are now all but devoid of Muslims — that made the biggest impression. “I’ve never had such a feeling,” he said. “I was crying.”

    OIC Secretary General visits camps in Rakhine State, Myanmar

    The Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and his accompanying delegation from seven member states visited on Friday, November 15, 2013, the camps of internally displaced peoples (IDPs) in restive Rakhine State, Myanmar. The OIC delegation listened to Rakhine Buddhists and Muslims giving them a message of assurance that the OIC seeks to help both communities in order for them to live together in peace and harmony.

    Myanmar’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Union Minister of Border Affairs, both of whom and other officials had briefed the OIC delegation before the visit of the Government’s efforts of resettlement, accompanied the delegation’s full-day tour of three camps in the state’s capital of Sittwe and the town of Maungdaw. Chief Minister of Rakhine State, who welcomed the delegation upon arrival, also joined them in the tour.
    Throngs of Rakhine Muslims, mainly from the Rohingya community, lined the dusty roads cheering the OIC delegation and welcoming it.

    In his dialogue with members of the Rakhine Buddhists, Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu stressed over and over again that OIC is not a religious organization and was not in Myanmar to spread Islam or to help Muslims solely, but to help all community members affected by violence without any discrimination.
    He also emphasized on the need to build confidence and trust in the community and that OIC is willing to contribute towards achieving that.

    Ihsanoglu and the ministerial delegation prayed at Thabuchaung Mosque where thousands of worshipers surrounded them in warm welcome and joy at seeing them. Ihsanoglu spend time listening to their grievances and expressing support and sympathy.
