Al-Qaeda calls on followers to support Rohingyas
International jihadist group Al-Qaeda has urged Muslims to help the Rohingyas financially, militarily and physically. Al-Qaeda Central made the call through its As-Sahab media channel on Telegram on Tuesday. “Al-Qaeda Central (AQC) urged Muslims around the world and especially those in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and the Philippines to support their Rohingya brethren in Myanmar financially, militarily, and physically,” according to Site Intelligence Group. Earlier this month, al-Qaeda-backed Ansar Ghazwatul Hind (previsouly Hizbul Mujahideen), urged Muslims to show the Buddhists how a Muslim can protect another Muslim. The jihadist group also asked for revenge for attacking the Rohingyas. The Rohingya insurgent group Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), which attacked Myanmar police posts and army base in late August, declared a one-month ceasefire on September 9. After the attack, at least three lakhs Myanmar citizens fled to Bangladesh. ARSA (previsouly known as Arakah Al-Yaqin) earlier attacked Myanmar’s nine border security posts on October 9 last year following which Myanmar army started a violent crackdown on Rohingya Muslims. Different local and international militant groups have supported ARSA, but apparently ARSA is working independently toward liberating Rakhine state.
