TEHRAN, September 6 - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called on Myanmar government to prevent brutal crimes against Muslims.

Rouhani calls on Myanmar to end crimes against MuslimsTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “We invite Myanmar government to prevent brutal crimes against Muslims. We urge all neighboring and Muslim countries to help displaced people of Myanmar. We call on the UN to abide by its fulfillments.”

He also asked the Islamic World to help Myanmar politically and humanely, adding the Islamic Republic of Iran and Red Crescent is ready for help to the affected people in the coAuntry.

The UN estimates that some 146,000 Rohingya Muslims — including women and children — have arrived in Bangladesh since last month, when the Myanmarese military unleashed new violence on the community.

The refugees who have recently made it to Bangladesh have told horrific accounts of massacres in villages. They have said the military forces attack and burn villages and shoot civilians.

Many of the Muslims have as a result decided to take perilous boat journeys across the Naf River, which separates Myanmar from Bangladesh.

Myanmar’s military intensified attacks on Rohingya Muslims on August 25, after dozens of police and border outposts in the northern state of Rakhine came under attack by an armed group that is said to be defending the rights of the Rohingya.
