Hefazat threatens to siege Myanmar embassy on September 19
Radical Islamist Group Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh has threatened to lay siege to the Myanmar embassy on September 19, if the atrocities against Rohingya Muslims in Rakhine state of Myanmar continue. The Qawmi madrasa-based organisation announced the programme at a press conference held at Chittagong Press Club on Saturday morning. While reading out a written statement, Hefazat Secretary General Junaid Babunagari issued the ultimatum. He added that Hefazat will also stage nationwide demonstrations against the mass murder of Rohingyas on September 16, and that it would submit memoranda regarding the matter to both the United Nations and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation on September 21. Denouncing the persecution of the Rohingya people, Babunagari urged international organisations to intervene and put a stop to the ongoing atrocities in the Rakhine state of Myanmar.

“The Bangladesh government should mount diplomatic pressure on the Myanmar government to stop the atrocities against the Rohingya people immediately. If the mass killing of Rohingyas is not stopped, Hefazat will hold a long march towards Rakhine state in Myanmar, led by its chief Allama Shah Ahmed Shafi,” threatened the Hefazat leader. “Dubbing the Rohingyas as terrorists is a violation of human rights. They are downtrodden and persecuted,” Babunagari added. He also urged for all to provide fleeing Rohingyas with any necessary support and aid including food and shelter. “The Rohingyas gave us shelter during our Liberation War in 1971. Therefore, we should provide them with shelter,” the Hefazat secretary general said. The press conference was attended by senior Hefazat leaders Tajul Islam, Foyjullah, Likman Hakim, Mainuddin Ruhi, Azizul Haque Islamabadi, Junayed Al Habib and Anas Madani, among others.
